Double-sided printing on hard materials is for projects that are visible from both sides, usually hanging signs or A-frames. The artists and exhibitors use both sides of the signage material to depict the same or different pictures or messages as needed.

Inside glass printing on acrylic, lexan or clear vinyl is used for business and retail styling. Graphics are printed from the “back” side of a clear material and coated with a white layer. Thus, the picture is protected from possible scratches, looks more vibrant 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 mounting.

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.
