printing on a wall

Hello guys,
I'm starting a project and I would like to know your opinion about something.
Could be a laser printer be modified to print on a wall instead of paper?

You can get custom made wallpaper, but it's pretty expensive.

I would think a stencil and a custom painter might be able to do better if it's a repetitive pattern.

As long as you can get the wall to pass between the printer rollers, sure.

If you can't afford a wall printer you could use transfer paper in desktop printer. Clear coat the wall after the transfers are applied. There are also programs to divide up an image into several sheets of paper that can be fitted together to form the whole image. The same could be used with transfer paper to make a mural on a wall.
