Signs, Material Types and How They Are Made

Creative Sign and Banner has the knowledge and experience to design and manufacture the right sign for your needs. There are many types of signs we provide, with quite a few different methods we use to create them economically and efficiently. CallCreative at 504-539-4601 to discuss your project or use the form below.
First and traditionally is Pressure-Sensitive Vinyl. This technology came out in the early 1980’s and is still being used today by cutting solid color adhesive roll vinyl by specialized SOFTWARE and a plotter. Creative Sign and Banner‘ in-house MAMAKI 64″ wide Cutter/Plotter to handle these jobs, small or large. Also known asReady-to-Apply Vinyl (RTA), the cut material can be applied to a wide variety of non-porous surfaces such as glass, plastic, cars, boats & trucks, aluminum or any other material impervious to water. RTA is best used when the applied surface will be part of the look of the finished product. Not only can it be used for signs, banners, vehicles and individual RTA lettering, it can also be used for decoration. Frosted Glass vinyl is perfect for accenting interior glass doors and walls. RTA comes pre-taped and ready to INSTALL (we’ll show you how!) or if you prefer, we will INSTALL it for you.

To answer the need to produce full color images economically, Large-Format Digital Printing was introduced in the mid 1990’s. Creative Sign and Banner’s in-house 64″ wide, 8-color EPSON PRINTER reproduces the widest color gamut, with a standard resolution of 600 DPI and a max resolution of 1440 DPI (dots per inch) allowing for the most realistic reproductions of your Signs, Banners, Logos, Photos, Scenery and Advertising Products. To put into perspective, your COMPUTER monitor is only 72 DPI! (Psst…this is why we can not use graphics lifted off of the internet website or Google searches as they are created to be viewed at 72 DPI)

Photographic quality images are printed directly onto banner material, static cling, photo paper, shirt transfer material or mostly pressure-sensitive vinyl. It is then clear laminated for ultra-violet & scratch protection. The image is then mounted to surfaces such as glass, vehicles, plastic, acrylic, metals like aluminum or any other clean, non-porous surface for your finished sign.
