Vinyl, wrongly perceived as the nemesis of the traditional sign painter is actually an important ally. Self-adhesive films have been around for a long time and signwriters were hand cutting lettering years before the first computerised plotters began to revolutionise the industry.
Vinyl has improved a lot since then and nowadays it has outstanding capabilities and is available in an ever-increasing number of colours and finishes. Cast vinyl has an exterior lifespan of ten years even in the harshest of conditions, and will not peel, fade, or shrink. We have been cutting and applying vinyl graphics and films for over thirty-years now and it has played a big part in the way we have developed as a company, providing new opportunities and markets to ply our trade.
Mid-term vinyl has an exterior life of seven years in all conditions, and has similar properties to the cast, but when it’s time to change, it can be easily removed without damaging the surface. It’s the ideal graphics material for commercial vehicles and is available in a wide range of colours and finishes. We have worked on numerous types of vehicles from racing cars to giant excavators and cranes as well as motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, and luxury yachts.
Translucent vinyl is used for back-lit acrylic signs creating illuminated displays and has been a popular choice for many restaurants and high street retailers for many years. We can supply and fix all types of illuminated and back-lit signs, acrylic sign faces and lettering. A good design is the key to success here and we can help with that too if required.
Other special finishes are reflective vinyl for safety and road signs, fluorescent for emergency vehicles and safety signs and some very interesting metallic, holographic, and special effect films. With a little imagination it’s possible to create some unique and stunning eye-catching designs.
