Outdoor stickers 1

Outdoor stickers

More and more outdoor stickers are required by Perth businesses, due to WA’s high level of UV radiation, which deteriorates sticker material quicker. Perth Graphics Centre’s UV stable digital screen press (as shown below) ensures outdoor stickers last their longest by printing onto high performance cast vinyl with solvent-based outdoor-grade inks. These stickers will be going onto hot water tanks and will still be readable in the years to come. We can also overlaminate the stickers with a UV absorbent vinyl which extends the life of the print even further. We are constantly producing outdoor stickers, so if you need...

Long lasting stickers 0

Long lasting stickers

To make long lasting stickers, you need to follow several steps. Firstly, you need the right kind of sticker material, or self-adhesive vinyl as we call it in the industry. Secondly, you need to use high quality inks which will bite into the vinyl – solvent-based inks are the best for this. Next is the most crucial step – outgassing. Seen above, outgassing is simply letting the solvents “outgas” from the vinyl. During the normal drying phase of the inks most of the solvent evaporates, but some still remains. Outgassing is done by hanging the vinyl vertically, and as the...

Herbie the Love Bug Volkswagen Beetle decal kit 3

Herbie the Love Bug Volkswagen Beetle decal kit

Perth Graphics Centre can now supply movie-authentic Herbie decal kits complete for a Volkswagen Beetle. Using templates provided by a Herbie enthusiast, we’ve been able to vectorise the kit which can be fitted in the exact locations used in the movie. This particular Love Bug is used in racing, and as such has a Porsche engine under its boot lid. That made it a little more difficult, as we had to deal with air vent holes which normally aren’t present on a Herbie VW Beetle. It took a little extra time to mold the vinyl around the air vents but...

Domed stickers and badges

Vehicle Wraps – Half is still good!

Vehicle Wraps – Half is still good!

Our client was looking for great value and despite that full wraps are all the rage, sometimes a half wrap will provide just as much exposure but at a much better price. Why just wrap half a vehicle? Full wraps require removal of quite a bit of hardware including door handles, badges and more. Wrapping only half a vehicle without removal of all the components results in a faster cheaper job and yet the exposure is almost as good as a full wrap. Value for money, a half wrap is pretty hard to beat. The same materials as are used...
