We use ceramic and tumbled
stone; porcelain and others upon request. Our tiles are as close to WHITE as possible as the tile acts as our “canvas” for
the colors we use.
(Please note: All tile sizes and the final
resulting mural size is dependent on size of the base tile used including
spacers. The exact size of a completed product will vary based on tile type,
spacer size and manufacture date. As well, individual tile sizes within a tile
type and size will vary slightly and therefore the final size of your
product will vary. [Natural Stone tiles will have more variance] We cannot
guarantee the final 'exact' size of your product. IMPORTANT: Once your art on
tile is complete, the tiles should not be cut or drilled at all. Please make
sure you order the final size if you need a custom fit, and we will cut to size
before we manufacture!! [again within the tile size variances])

Our ceramic tiles
are like the traditional white tiles you see

tiles are placed next to each other, the spacers touch and create a 1/16th
of an inch grout line in-between each tile. These tiles are 1/4 inch thick.
The tumbled stone tile
(can be from from this
looks more like tumbled marble. It does have
the “natural” veining and pitting throughout the tile along with some of the
corners and edges being a bit rough looking. All of this gives the mural a more
“old world” look and feel. We get tiles that are as close to white as possible
but they have the physical visual characteristics shown in the photos above.
Their sizes are 4” x 4” OR 6” x 6”. There are NO SPACERS on these tiles…so, you
may place them as close or as far apart as you would like when installing. These
tiles are 3/8 inch thick. Stone is a
natural product subject to variations in color, shade, veining, exact size per
piece and polish. These variations are what make natural stone unique. Although
this photo (above) accurately represents this species of stone, variations will
