Signs, Printing & Graphics
What started as a chance encounter would lead to a career change with no regrets. There is something fascinating about taking ideas or images and producing them to paper and other products. Somehow the machines mix ink colors and squirt exact dots onto media that wows the audience. I am not sure vibrant colors and exact productions ever get old.
In the beginning it was about learning how printers work, what kind of materials to use or will something last outdoors. Fast forward a decade later, it’s about how to turn all these skills, technologies and imaginations into branding for many different companies. We are great at it and excel in all aspects. We take the time to listen to our customers and our customers trust us to recommend the correct products.
Wide Format Printing Services
At the core of what we do is wide format printing. There are several types of technologies or machines depending on what a customer needs.
Flatbed Printing is one type. This printer allows us to print directly to boards and materials thicker than paper. Skipping the need to print on paper or decals first.
Latex Printing is a special set of ink types that are eco friendly. These inks dry instantly and are used to print on a variety of materials. Like, vinyl banner material, canvas material, window see through perforation, window clings and more.
Dye-Sub Printing allows us to print onto fabric materials for a more exotic product our customers love. This is great for fabric banners, flags, backdrops, apparel and more.
Sign Installation Services
Making the sign products we make is sometimes only half the job. Many times our customers need installation services. Sometimes this is a simple procedure and sometimes requires special zoning from a municipality. It always helpful for our customers to factor in time for installation depending on their needed date for the signage and graphics.
Vinyl Banner Installation can be done flat on brick walls, in the middle of a field, or along a fence for example. Each type requires different hardware. Screws for concrete, poles for grass insertion or heavy duty zip ties for fencing.
Construction Site Signage is typically when a construction site need a large sign posted to the property site. It may show the finished product image and or give pertinent information to the public. Wooden posts are usually buried and then sign boards are attached to the posts. These can be highly customized or left basic.
Window Decals have a few types of materials. Some are opaque and some are more translucent. When we install these we make sure the glass is very clean free of grease. We then squeegee large panels of graphics to create a mural of images.
Building Signage requires a permit unless it is already permitted. Sometimes we just change the image out and are not replacing the entire structure. If the sign is to be lit up there will need to be proper electric brought to the location which requires a separate electric permit. We usually install these with a two man team using a truck lift or scissor lift equipment.
Lobby Signage entails a customer showcasing their logo usually in some dimensional fashion at their office entrance. We create the sign our of cut dimensional letters and then fasten them to the wall using various methods. Sometimes we use stand off hardware to lift the sign off the wall.
