Canvas Painting Reproduction
Our latex printer gives terrific results when printing on canvas. These prints can then be stretched on stretcher bars and hung like a painting.
This canvas print is in my home, courtesy of the family of Paul McCoy, who had great quality slides of some of his paintings from the 1950’s. You have to touch this canvas to realize that it’s not really painted. The brush strokes are that vividly reproduced.
The latex prints on canvas are light stable, they say good for 3-5 years outdoors, so they ought to outlive us when displayed indoors out of direct sunlight.
Wallboard Vinyl on Panels
Here’s an easy way to do vibrant graphics on a trade show booth backdrop. In this case, our customer Hoo Shoes needed a backdrop they could attach a number of their products to. They used wallboard vinyl applied to 4×8′ panels.
Wallboard vinyl does the trick because it has a “sticky note” adhesive on the back which is easy to remove when the show is over. The colors are vibrant, and the material is a nice matte vinyl that won’t give you trouble with glare.
A great way for a small business to reach out to passing customers is to use a sidewalk sandwich sign. For $199 you get a double sided sandwich sign like the one pictured.
We print a 24×36″ sintra graphic in full color. It slips into each side of the sandwich sign so that people see it whichever way they are going. The signs are easily changed when you want to update the graphics.
The sign holder itself is a blow-molded rugged plastic that will last for years. There’s a handy holder at the top that allows you to pick it up and bring it back into your shop at the end of the day. It folds flat for easy storage.
We can help with the graphic design too, if you need that. Or, you can send us files ready to print and have your sandwich sign back in a few days.
It’s that time of year- companies are getting everyone together to talk about what needs to be done in the coming year. We have been very busy making meeting signs.
Since they don’t usually need to last more than a few days, we print meeting signs on foamcore board. It’s cheap and the colors are terrific!
We can produce your meeting signs in a day or two.
Bank Lobby Poster
You normally think of paper posters when doing your typical 22×28 poster in a bank lobby. We are finding a solution that we like a lot better, though.
Our good customer Meredith Village Savings Bank has us print their lobby posters on 1 mm sintra, which is a foamed PVC sheet .040″ thick. There are a number of reasons we like this material, first of which it stays really flat over an extended period of time. Paper posters tend to get wavy after a while.
Another reason is that the sintra is totally waterproof. So, they use them outdoors in sign holders on the ATM, etc. If things get a little we, no harm done.
Lastly, these lobby posters are rigid, so they go into and come out of sign holders easily.
You’ll find sintra bank posters to be around the same cost as paper posters, but superior in how they look and perform long term. Give it a try!
