Sailtrack banner skin – large format signage 0

Sailtrack banner skin – large format signage

Often we are asked to install a sign which is bigger than a single sheet size of sign material like corflute or signwhite. This means joins which can be unsightly. The solution? A sailtrack banner skin. Using a special aluminium track and kedar edging, the banner becomes a tight skin which can be stretched to fit the size needed. The sign above was requested to be made out of three sheets of corflute due to its size (several metres long). To be honest, this wouldn’t have looked very nice. Perth Graphics Centre opted to produce a sailtrack banner skin, enabling...

Van signwriting for a Peugeot Expert L2 0

Van signwriting for a Peugeot Expert L2

Commonly these days, people are requesting digital prints on their vans. In the case of this Peugeot Expert L2 owner, however, vinyl cut signs were recommended. Vinyls will give a longer life than a print and when you’re signwriting a van, this is an important consideration. The look is achieved by using signage in several layers which gives an outline effect but still maintaining longevity. Van signs are cheaper than a Yellow Pages advert, but are always in people’s minds as the van drives past. If you’ve got a Peugeot van you require signs on, or indeed any van, Perth...

Signs for a Ford Focus – partial vehicle wrap 0

Signs for a Ford Focus – partial vehicle wrap

Perth Graphics Centre was contacted by M2 Technology about signwriting their Ford Focus, and through consultation with their graphic designer, we were able to achieve the above result. Two custom colours were required to keep M2 Technology’s colour consistent, and so digital print was chosen as the best way to achieve this look. We used our solvent-based digital printer to print onto a high performance cast vinyl and then overlaminated for protection. This gives the longest lasting job as well as the greatest colour consistency. While you couldn’t call this a full vehicle wrap or even a half vinyl wrap,...
