From ADA compliant signage to directionals and wayfinding markers, these durable signs are a great way to get your message across in an effective manner.

They are easy to read and can be customized with a wide range of fonts, colors and graphics. They are also durable, weather resistant and can be made to last for years.

The best sign for your needs

Whether you want a custom banner for a business or an event, a sign with a bold design and easy-to-read lettering will be sure to grab people’s attention. We can print these signs on a variety of materials, including aluminum, plastic, wood, and vinyl.

Banners for Indoor and Outdoor Use

Vinyl banners are a versatile, affordable choice for your advertising needs. They can be hung anywhere you need them, and the lightweight material is easy to transport.

If you are planning to hang your banner outdoors, you should consider grommets or reinforced edges. These metal rings go around the holes on the banner’s edges, making them able to withstand harsh weather conditions.

How to Send Art for a Vinyl Cutter

If you have art created in a vector-based application such as Illustrator or CorelDRAW, you can send it directly to your cutter through the plotter’s USB port. Alternatively, you can export the artwork in a common file format and then import it to sign software such as FlexiSign or Vinyl Express LXi, which will send it indirectly to your cutter.

You can also send your artwork through a sign company’s CAD program. This will then be converted to a CMYK file for printing, giving you an accurate idea of what the final banner will look like.

What to Do When the Graphic is Too Large or Heavy for a Cutter

If your artwork has been printed on vinyl and you’re looking to have it cut down to size, you’ll need to use a weeding tool. Weeding tools are essentially small, plastic razor blades that can be used to scrape the edges of the design off without damaging your substrate.

There are also a few tools that help you remove a vinyl graphic from its substrate. One tool is a “Li’l Chizler” which is a thin plastic hand tool that can slide under the edges of the vinyl to pry it off the surface. Another tool is a weeding needle, which is a small needle that is used to push the weeds out of the design.

If you’re creating a new vinyl design, your existing vinyl graphic is likely to have some flaws or mistakes. This is why it’s important to have your old graphic removed before you start the process of transferring the new design. If you need high quality vinyl signs for your promotion visit
