FEATURED SIGN OF THE DAY!
Custom signs are what we do on a continual basis to help meet our customers sign needs. The photo pictured to your left are extremely customized to satisfy this particular clients' trade show poster board vision which involves combining a few different printing elements to complete this beautiful gold mirror foamboard poster sign.
This particular trade show poster encountered three specific steps to bring the clients' vision to fruition, which was to have a full color digital print on a rigid surface with gold and silver mirrored seals, to creativity make their tradeshow display pop and shine. Below is a short description of how this beautiful trade show foamboard poster was created and produced by our talented sign staff.
The specialized process utilized in making this particular foamboard poster is just one of the many custom techniques we use to create beautiful signs day in and day out. This particular poster board takes a bit longer to make than most foamboard posters, but the result is truly striking and worth the effort involved.
This particular procedure is typical when our customers order posters that need to have a level of rigidity for displays at conventions, tradeshows, point of purchase stands and much more. This particular portion of manufacturing these particular signs starts with printing a digital decal (or large sticker) on an adhesive white vinyl. The digital print was then cut down to shape and mounted to 3/8" piece of black foamboard which is thin and lightweight, but provides enough rigidity to vertically display this particular sign.
The next step in creating the custom poster boards was to cut out the gold mirror and silver mirror seals from rolls of u-apply vinyl since digital printers can't actually print a "mirror" color. Mirrored vinyl actually emulates the look of polished metal where you can actually see your reflection on the vinyl material. The cut-to-shape gold mirror and silver mirror seals are then actually applied directly to the digitally print that is mounted to the foamboard.
Mirrored vinyl is not ink receptive because of the way the vinyl is made. So to achieve any sort of lettering on the mirrored vinyl itself another print will need to be incorporated that has no actual background color so that the mirrored vinyl still shines through. To achieve this we incorporated our Gerber Edge printer which can thermally print spot colors, white ink and full color images onto white or clear vinyl. This particular job required a Gerber Edge decal print on clear material as to eliminate a background color. The decal was then applied on top of the mirrored vinyl to complete the client's desired look.
