Fleet signwriting: Perth Graphics Centre pumps out more cars for Fisheries

Fleet signwriting may seem like a simple task, but there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. Here at Perth Graphics Centre, we cover all bases, including signage materials choices, ink types, the use of protective overlaminates and surface preparation. Fleet signwriting materials When signwriting a fleet, there’s only really one choice for vinyls – cast. We use a variety of cast materials, but we’ve settled on Avery vinyls because of their quality, colour consistency and printability. To make sure it all matches, we also use Avery overlaminates. The expansion and contraction of the two vinyls is then...

Fleet Signwriting: Perth Graphics Centre completes trucks for Perth Bin Hire

When creating signage for a fleet, Perth Graphics Centre is meticulous about colour-matching, materials choice and surface preparation. And fleet signage needs to be readable, too. That’s why for Perth Bin Hire, we opted for a simple and bold approach. The lettering is done using cast vinyl, which is the best quality available in the industry. Ask any vinyl supplier which of their products lasts the longest and the answer will always be the same – cast vinyl. It’s a poured film, rather than stretched, so there’s never a risk of it lifting or curling up at the edges, which...

Signage on a van’s back window – use one way vision 1

Signage on a van’s back window – use one way vision

The back window of a van is a supreme area for placing signage, and one way vision prints are the most effective way to use it. It’s a large, flat area, and Perth Graphics Centre can print virtually any image on your back window. One way vision films are rated for 12 months outdoor life, though most people get longer than this with some simple care. Despite being a short-term film, the effect is well worth the effort. And if you’re concerned about your rear vision when it rains, then Perth Graphics Centre has a solution. We use an optically-clear...

Adding signage to a tailgate – simple yet effective 0

Adding signage to a tailgate – simple yet effective

When a car is driving behind you, there’s a great opportunity for signage. You have a captive audience to pitch your business to, so why not take advantage of that? Signage on the side of a vehicle is great, as there’s a large area to utilise, however the rear of a car doesn’t get as much attention. However, think about how many times you’re driving next to a car and writing down the phone number or website of the business being advertised – it doesn’t happen, right? When a car is in front of you at a set of lights,...

See through window signs: One Way Vision 0

See through window signs: One Way Vision

One way vision is the name we use for see through window signs, the product used on the back windows of cars. As you can see below, the car is able to be used for advertising purposes, yet the driver can retain vision through the rear window. The way it works is through light transmission. The adhesive is black but the face is white. With tiny perforations (which is why it’s also called perforated window film) the one way vision product absorbs light from inside the car but reflects light outside the car. That way the light only travels in...

Vinyl lettering for vehicles – what’s the best? 0

Vinyl lettering for vehicles – what’s the best?

When it comes to using vinyl lettering on vehicles, there’s really only one option. While there are several grades of vinyl available, with the most common types being cast, polymeric calendered and monomeric calendered, a little research shows it’s just one type to use. The names refer to the manufacturing process. Cast vinyls are, as the name suggests, cast onto a roll. Once cut into shapes, they lay very flat, and due to being thinner, they are easily conformable to irregular shapes. Polymeric and monomeric calendered vinyls use the first name to signify the type of plasticiser used in the...

Vehicle Wraps 3

Vehicle Wraps

Executing a professional vehicle wrap isn’t as simple as just throwing on a sticker. Vehicle wraps need to be properly planned and properly carried out. Perth Graphics Centre’s expertise in vehicle wraps is evident in this wrap we did for Galleria Toyota. The design was planned around the shape of the car, and problem areas were identified. Each step was considered, including which panels would be laid down first to achieve the best result. The attention to detail was such that the panels were fitted from back to front, allowing the panels overlap toward the rear. This ensures that when...

Work Ute Signage 0

Work Ute Signage

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,...

Work Van Signage 0

Work Van Signage

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...

Signage for a van – Artistic Timber Flooring 0

Signage for a van – Artistic Timber Flooring

Perth Graphics Centre was approached to create signage for this Toyota Hiace, using just a logo and a few details. Because the customer wanted to keep things fairly simple, we opted for a one way vision print for the back and side windows, maximising available space for the logo. This allowed us to keep everything clear and direct – a helpful hint if you’ve got a few points you want to list on your van. Signage is different to advertising – more isn’t necessarily better. This style of signwriting allows the viewer to get all the information they need in...

Ford Ranger ute signwriting 0

Ford Ranger ute signwriting

Signwriting for utes has always been popular and now with so many different models to choose from, it makes our job that much more interesting. We created this signage on a Ford Ranger ute to give it the necessary branding the company required. While a fairly basic job in terms of design, it lifts an otherwise boring ute.
