The story begins with one guy called Ed and his wife Abi moving into their first home and finding that they have very little freedom to decorate their rented space. Frustrated by this, Ed harnessed his creative prowess to design a graphic that he could produce through a friend’s sign company. Not thinking the idea would take off, he posted some pictures on Facebook (other social networks are available) and the response was overwhelming. This unexpected feedback clearly highlighted that people were actively seeking out wall art and decals that are design focused, imaginative and unique…Vinyl Impression was born!
We’ve since moved from a garage to a commercial unit but all the way remaining resolute in providing only the best in design and service. As the floor space has increased so has the team and we are more driven then ever to source new designs and designers to guarantee the end result is perfect.
Ed is our fearless leader and the founding father of Vinyl Impression. Ed’s creative flare combined with his high energy and passion ensures we pursue only top quality design that is neatly packaged in and efficient service. Ed is a proud graduate of the ‘Sexey’ school in Somerset, but we are yet to see the proof of his sexy education…
Nate is the lynch pin to our business development and is a passionate perfectionist.
