Perforated Window Vinyl
I saw these window graphics in the cafeteria at Dartmouth Medical Center a few weeks ago. They were being used to separate the cafeteria from the gift shop.
The window graphic material being used is what we call Window Perf. It’s a regular adhesive vinyl with 1mm holes in it. The material we stock is 60% vinyl and 40% holes, black on the back and white on the side to be printed. The adhesive is on the black side, of course, since we can’t print on the adhesive side without things getting gummed up!
What this material allows the customer to do is to create a window graphic that allows people on the inside of a store to see out, but people on the outside see the graphic and not the interior of the store. Sometimes that’s for privacy, as here, and sometimes for security.
We stock these sandwich sign holders, and print 24×36″ coroplast signs that go into them. This one is for the Shackett’s Micro Brewery in Bristol, NH, which makes some really good beer in my experience!
They have a lower level location that isn’t easily seen from street lever, so a sandwich sign like this helps to bring customers in the door.
The sandwich sign holders are made of blow molded plastic, and when you use a coroplast insert, are completely waterproof
Trade Show Graphics
Here’s a trade show photo we printed for our good customer Lupine Pet for a recent trade show.
We print a lot of trade show photos, these were printed on our wallboard vinyl and applied to the customer’s booth.
We also do a lot of trade show photos laminated with our crystal laminate that will be attached to the carpet face of a booth with VELCRO® brand hook and loop fasteners.
However you want to have your trade show photos, we have the expertise and experience to produce the materials you need for your booth. Give us a call and we’ll get things done for you fast, affordably, and beautifully.
Museum Display Holder
Here’s a great way to hang museum display boards, which I saw the other day at the Wright Museum in Wolfboro NH.
The hanging system consists of two wooden rails, each notched on the back. The display boards slip up into the notched board on top, and then drop down into the notch on the bottom. The notch at the top is deeper than the one on the bottom, so that the top of the display board is still captured when the board drops into the bottom rail.
This makes it fast and easy to change the museum display boards. That’s important to museums who like to change their exhibits around. These boards are direct printed on 3/16 gatorboard, and can be laminated with plastic to enhance durability.
Call us and we can give you a sketch that shows you how to do this. And, we’ll print the boards for you fast and at a fair price!
Photo Mosaic Wall Mural
There are a number of web sites that let you make a mosaic of photos. Here’s a fun way to use the mosaic- as custom lobby wallpaper!
You can make custom wallpaper from product photos, pictures of employees or customers, buildings or your factory.
You don’t need to limit yourself to a custom wall mural in the lobby either! Think about using them in conference or training rooms, cafeterias, or just anyplace where the custom wallpaper will have an impact!
Large Size Wall Map
This large wallpaper map was in a Museum in Alaska that wanted to show the Arctic Circle on a map of the world. It was printed on something similar to our wallboard vinyl, which is a wall covering with “sticky note” adhesive.
Wallpaper maps are useful in many ways. We’ve printed a map of the White Mountain National Forest, a number of towns with all the roads and bridges shown, and even a military base.
Rather than gather around a table with half the group trying to read a small paper map upside down, a wallpaper map can be made much larger and everyone can gather around it right-side up!
All you really need to have a wallpaper map printed is a good high resolution file of the area. Much of these are available online, do a Google search and you find what you need.
