Printing Techniques:

Direct Printing is applicable on materials such as aluminum, acrylic, wood, PVC, gatorboard, and more. These materials, like wood printing, can be used for home and office decor.
Double-sided printing on hard materials is for projects with a unique twist. The artists and exhibitors use both sides of the same signage material to depict the same or different pictures or messages as needed.
Inside glass printing on acrylic is used for business and retail styling. Graphics are printed from the “back” side of a clear acrylic and coated with a white layer. Thus, the picture is protected from possible scratches and lasts longer.

Finishing

We provide full-circle large format printing services including the finishing stage.
Finishing involves preparation for installation. After your signage has been printed, we need to dress it for hanging or provide stands or other special hardware.
For hanging signage, you can choose poll pockets or grommets with or without hemmed edges.

Pole Pocket
In case you want to hang your large format printings with a wire, rod or through a pipe, the pole pocket option will be ideal for you.

Grommets
You can select grommets for your vinyl and mesh banners. You can hang the graphics using bungee or wire.

Hemmed edges
Adding a welded hem to the edges will give your banner a smoother finish and improve its appearance.

Lamination
To protect your signage from surface to deep scratches and mechanical damage, we can laminate it.

A.
It’s possible to have two different graphics with a standard 13oz vinyl banner. Our double-sided banners can depict the same or different message on both sides without showing through the material. Additionally, as the product is basically two banners attached together, the two-sided banner provides twice the durability. This technique can be used to entice viewers inside your building or cafe with one promotion and simultaneously attract outside traffic with another message printed on the other side.
Q.

Image bleed ensures the final large format print doesn’t have white lines on the edges. It’s the method of extending the design file past its margins in order to have a neater look after being trimmed.

A.
For large scale printing we use 300 dpi to 1200 dpi resolution.
Q.

What if the colors on the custom banner aren’t what I expected?

A.
Printers at our machine park are programmed to print colors accurately to match the order. However, in the rare cases that they don’t match expectations, we can’t be held responsible. This type of error can occur due to the difference of thumbnails on our screens and equipment compared to yours, which is out of our control. The issue will be discussed on a case-by-case basis. We will not issue refunds on certain projects or may accept returns and require new artwork to provide a better result.
