These handsome trail head graphics are an important part of any nature path. You want to show a map of the trail and set out the rules. We also like to see people do “you are here” maps along the way. I’ve always found it frustrating to have a map of the trail, but no idea which junction I was at!
We printed these trail head graphics on paper with UV inks, and then laminated them with glossy plastic. The customer put them under Plexiglass to further protect them.
We also do a lot of trail head signs on Sintra and aluminum. The advantage of these materials is that people can’t poke a hole in the lamination, which destroys the moisture integrity of the graphic. Especially out on the trail, you don’t have a nice kiosk to protect them.
To the right is a 12×18″ “You Are Here” sign direct printed on aluminum, and a Sintra sign mounted to a piece of pressure treated wood.
