In this article, we’ll explain a little bit about banner printing. Perth Graphics Centre prints banners day in and day out, and has done for many years, meaning we have a lot of experience printing banners.
The banner material to print on is fairly standard – a 440gsm gloss, 1000×1000 denier. Don’t worry if that doesn’t mean much; all you need to know is that it’s a medium weight, gloss banner with good tear resistance in wind.
Printing banners can be done in a couple of ways: screen-printed banners or digitally printed banners. Screenprinting is usually done for huge quantities – 100 banners or more. Today, screen-printed banners are all but extinct. Digital printing has taken over, and is just as cost effective. There are a few methods for printing digitally – solvent-based inks, UV-curable inks and latex-based inks.
Here at Perth Graphics Centre, we have invested in the latest equipment so we can do banner printing with solvent inks and UV-curable inks, the two most common forms of printing. Each will last outside in the weather and each have good clarity and colour. So you can be sure when you order your banner from Perth Graphics Centre, you’re getting a quality product.
Lastly, we come to the finishing. Most of the time we use ropes and eyelets, but you can also incorporate Velcro, pockets or simple hems – it’s up to you. Each of these are professionally stitched and we DO NOT recommend wind-holes as these induce tears, rather than letting the wind through.
Hopefully, that helps explain the whole process. If you have any questions about banner printing, or just need some more information about banners, Perth Graphics Centre is here to help.

Sure we print banners, but did you know we also print fencing mesh? Perth Graphics Centre is printing more fence mesh for Perth real-estate developers, construction companies and renovators than ever before.
Fence mesh printing is seen here on our large format printer, which we have installed at our Malaga premises. Because we do our fence mesh printing here in Perth, we have complete control over the entire production process.
There are several grades of fence mesh available, from heavy weight, to light weight, and versions with a more open weave to let more air through, while the closed weave mesh allows for more exposure for your logo and message.
To find out which fencing mesh best suits your needs, give us a call and we can make a recommendation, or simply click here to request a quotation.

Most utes are used for work purposes, which means having signage to identify your business is crucial.
It doesn’t matter which make or model your ute is, Perth Graphics Centre can make signage to suit. As you can see from this Mitsubishi Triton, we used a low-cost graphic to do the door signs, but spent a bit more time on the toolbox to make it stand out.
If you have a toolbox you’d like signwritten, simply send us a photo of it, along with the dimensions and we can give you an estimate, based on the area covered. Of course, the more detail you can supply, the better. So, if you’d like work ute signage, Perth Graphics Centre should be your first port of call.

If you have a crisp, white work van, signage is what it needs. Perth Graphics Centre are the experts in work van signwriting, and we can accomodate all styles and budgets.
The van you see here uses both digital printing, one way vision and normal cast vinyls (the longest lasting available) to make the logo flow from panel to panel.
This method allows us to cover the windows without interfering with outside vision, but because it’s laminated, the tiny holes in the one way vision material don’t fill up with water, which keeps vision clear even when it’s wet.
Let Perth Graphics Centre turn your work van into something eye-catching. Head to our contact page and ask for a quote. You’ll be glad you did.

There are plenty of options for metal building signs, so give Perth Graphics Centre a call or email us for a quote. Click here to get in contact. We look forward to hearing from you.

To make a reception sign really stand out, it may be worth considering using brushed aluminium cut out lettering.
Rather than resorting to fake brushed silver vinyls, use the real thing and the result is much more eye catching. Seen here is 2mm aluminium, but there are other thicknesses available.
Cut out lettering isn’t limited to aluminium, thought. We can do cut out lettering from acrylic, foam, sign board, foam PVC, stainless steel, aluminium composite and almost any solid material. If you need cut out letters, then please call us to ask for a quote. Shop fronts, reception signs, and building signs can all benefit from cut out lettering to improve their appearance.
Please click here and we’ll be happy to chat to you about your needs.

Almost everyone has a printer these days, which means that almost everyone can print stickers. But the real test is whether or not they last outside.
Here at Perth Graphics Centre, we have made it our goal to produce the longest lasting, most UV durable and UV stable stickers you can buy in Perth.
The trick is the vinyl stock which we use, coupled with long-lasting inks and protective overlaminates. Our customers have been very impressed over the years with how long our stickers last, which is why they keep coming back for more. Seen above is one of our high-speed printing presses making these UV durable stickers.
UV stable stickers are definitely an advantage in our harsh climate, so if you need long-lasting, outdoor and weatherproof stickers, then please head to our contact page to ask for a quote.

A-Boards, also known as A-Frame signs, are a great, portable way of displaying your information.

We’ve done plenty of vehicles for Dial A Doctor, being the preferred signage supplier. But we had only ever done Mitsubishi Colts.
After careful consultation with the client, we decided on this simple but effective design for the Hyundai i20. It stands out and tells the public exactly what the person is there for.
Signwriting cars is one of Perth Graphics Centre’s strengths, so if you need signs for your Perth-based business, please give us a call on 9248 6226.

Ford’s new Transit Custom is perfect for signwriting, with large blank sides, which is why when Australian Mobility Equipment approached us to do their van signage, we were able to come up with a powerful design.
Using a combination of vinyl and digital print, the signage stands out, and with one-way vision on the rear window, visibility is good, too.

Over the years producing pull up banners, Perth Graphics Centre has noticed a gradual shift toward companies relying on overseas production. Perth Graphics Centre, however, makes all of its pull banners here in Perth, in our Malaga production facility.
This ensures you get excellent turnaround, good pricing and quality that we’re happy to stand behind. Our pull up banners are all printed using a super high resolution printer, onto a non-curl film so that when you pull the banner out of its cassette, it looks its best.
In addition, we laminate the face with a protective clear film which prevents scuffing or scratching of the print, ensuring your pull up banner lasts as long as possible.
So, if you’re in need of pull up banners, Perth Graphics Centre is the place to go.

Why use aluminium for your signs? Perth Graphics Centre is only too happy to recommend it be used in certain signage applications, because of its longevity, its strength and its lightness.
Seen here are some signs in Osborne Park, which Perth Graphics Centre has installed onto both a tilt-up concrete building and onto a pylon sign. Replacement faces were the easiest way to spruce up the pylon sign and aluminium signs ensure a long lasting result without adding unnecessary weight.
Because the sheets are manufactured larger than Colorbond (Signwhite), a standard sign, like the one above can be made in one piece, rather than two. This gives a cleaner looking sign and less chance of movement during expansion and contraction.
If you’d like to have some aluminium signage installed in Perth, then please email us to ask for a quote. Just head to our contact page or email us at email@example.com.

Many Perth businesses need to catch the eye of traffic passing by, so freestanding signs are an excellent idea.
Constructed from galvanised and painted steel, they’re made to last for years. Perth Graphics Centre also makes its sign faces from either aluminium composite panel or Signwhite (Colorbond), ensuring that longevity is consistently achieved.
Though this is just a basic freestanding sign, Perth Graphics Centre can create something completely unique to suit your needs. Why not call us and ask for a quote? Head to our contact page and we look forward to helping you with your signage needs.
