Did you know that our sign shop not only works with local business communities but also other sign companies? It is true! Just recently, Shine On Signs needed help with a project. They requested ADA signs made with a flatbed printer.
Putting Our Flatbed Printer to Work for a Colleague
We worked with the other sign company to receive the specs. Because the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is very particular about the way signage must look, we ensured complete compliance with the law. Next, we used our flatbed printer to create backer images. The artwork has a distinct watercolor look while the shape is unique as well. Once completed, we sent the products to the sign company in Washington.
What is a Flatbed Printer? (And why does it matter?)
A flatbed printer is a tool that imprints flat materials. It can do screen, laser, and inkjet printing, which adds impressive versatility to the machine. Our shop uses it to manufacture large reproductions or multiple products at the same time. Because the printer works on a variety of materials, it is a significant asset for our sign shop.
Why does this matter? For starters, it is noteworthy that working with a sign shop that invests in late-model equipment is to your advantage. You know that your signs look crisp, graphics stand out, and colors are bold. There is not the washed out or pixilated look you might get with old printers or those in desperate need of repairs.
Similarly, having this equipment in our shop ensures that we can get to your project quickly. Late-model printers have perfected a reduction of ink drying or curing times. Therefore, we can cut a lot of the wait time that used to revolve around ink settling. As a result, we can schedule your installation sooner, which means that consumers are looking at your branding and marketing messages quickly.
Of course, there is another reason why working with our shop is a good option: customization. We have the tools to customize fully any signage display you need. Whether you need ADA signage, want something different for your lobby sign, or are thinking about revamping your building signage, we can help.
Working with a Full-Service Sign Shop
As important as the equipment is, there is more to doing business with a sign shop. You want full service. It begins with a site survey and consultation. Most clients do not know precisely what sign they want. Sure, they frequently have a good idea, but they might have questions about material options and sizing. This is where our experts shine.
Next, there is the conceptual design. Entrust the artwork to our graphics specialist. This expert will create a layout that shows you what your finished product looks like. It is an excellent opportunity to see the sign through the eyes of the consumer. We offer estimates that let you plan for the expense so that there will not be any surprises along the way.
Finally, there is the manufacture and installation. If you are ordering a building sign, we also handle the permitting process. Doing so saves you time and money. Most importantly, it gives you peace of mind. You know that we pulled all the right permits and that the sign will be done to code.
