Our Top 5 Sign Printers

Similar to most industries, the sign industry has advanced technologically at an unprecedented rate over the last 20 years. In the early late 1990's, if you wanted to create a multi-colour design for a shop facia or vehicle, you would have needed to cut multiple colours of vinyl and apply them in layers to the surface you were working on.

This all changed in the early 2000's with the birth of the solvent printer. Incidentally Granthams had a rather large part to play in this new technology, have a read here.

Sign makers are now able to print complex designs with full colour onto vinyl in a fraction of the time it would take to cut multiple rolls of vinyl and apply those colours in layers.

What types of signs can you manufacture using this type of signage printer?

If you go to any village, town or city in the world and look around, you will see signs. From offices and shops to vehicles and bus-stops, signs exist everywhere in all different shapes, sizes. 

Interior/office signage.

Offices are a great place to showcase stylish signage these days. Just look at the offices of Facebook and Google to see how elegant office signage can really lift the professionalism of an office environment. You might find window signs that use a window film showcasing the company logo, door signs/plaques or adhesive way-finding wall signs like safety signs, toilet signs or maybe a company's mission statement in full view of all staff and visitors.

FLOOR SIGNAGE
Since COVID19 it has been important to direct people round premises in the safest way possible whether it be schools, supermarkets, hotels etc. . Use floor signage to direct people using arrows and directions. However, floor signage doesn't have to be used just for health and safety, you can also use it to create amazing optical illusions and novel effects.

Large Format External Signage 

BANNER PRINTING
Large banners are perfect for conveying a message. Whether the are designed vertically or horizontally they provide a quick, relatively cost effective sign printing solution for any business.
SOFT SIGNAGE
Soft signage is defined as the use of soft materials for graphic display. Digital textile printing is a great example of soft signage. The materials are lighter than most traditional sign materials so these types of signs are cheaper to transport.
HANGING BANNERS
With hanging banners you can rise above the noise of everything that is going on and really catch someone's attention. If you're using a roll to roll printer you can go as high as you like.
