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.
Cost-effective & versatile
Vinyl has improved a lot since then, and in present day it has outstanding capabilities and uses. It is available in an ever-increasing number of colours, finishes & strengths.
Cast vinyl has an exterior lifespan of ten years, even in the harshest of conditions. Given It’s incredible resistance to weathering, It provides great protection against peeling, fading, or shrinking.
Mid-term vinyl has an exterior life of seven years in all conditions, and has similar properties to the cast. However, 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.
We have been cutting and applying vinyl graphics and films for over thirty-years, 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.
