Here is a video of our in house CNC machine cutting out some coconut trees for a cafe installation. The material is 16mm MDF which is then sent off for 2 pack spraying. The graphics and material was supplied by the customer, and was picked up 2 days later. If you need CNC routing done you may contact us at email@example.com

A few considerations before installing graphics
Permission / Copyright
Most images (if not all) from the internet are subject to Copyright and there are strict penalties for using such images without permission so make sure to obtain permission and/or pay for usage of any images you choose. There are many photo platforms you can buy images from such as iStock Photos, Shutterstock or GettyImages.
Resolution Resolution Resolution
Think image quality. If the image comes from a camera, make sure the quality is adequate for the size of the final print. Generally, if you bought the image from any of the image sites listed above, the quality is fine for large prints.
But if your original artwork is small, it will need to be enlarged to it's final size and this is where the quality diminishes as you will see the pixels. See our Artwork Specs Page for more details.

3D Sign Solutions was engaged by Plan A Commercial Interiors and Fitouts to produce and install a wide format digital printing of an abstract image for MMJ Real Estate in Melbourne.
Large format print is our expertise. We always use high tech materials and processes for digitally printed images to render full colour graphics on vinyl film, which last for years. We offer a number of large format printing service options for your business, whether for indoor or outdoor use:
Wide Format Printing Services & Applications
Depending on the type of signage application and budget, there are a large number of substrates you can use to mount your large print on. Here are the most popular materials that we use for our customers:
Banners are useful for all kinds of events as they're very durable, whether displayed indoors or outdoors. 3D Sign Solutions recently produced a 5m long banner for one of the My Kitchen Rules episodes. The banner was a massive image of the MCG inside the stadium at sunset.
Your large format graphic can be directly installed onto the walls of your office. We recommend using a high tack vinyl with an over laminate to increase the durability of your graphics. It's also important to note the type of paint to use so that your graphic doesn't peel off overtime. The type of paint we recommend is satin or gloss. These paints sit flat and give a good area to bond too. It's essential to let the paints outgass to the manufacturer's specs. Alternatively, we would suggest the Viponds prep coat be applied after any wall colour as this give the appropriate surface for standard glues to adhere to. Matt paints aren't generally flat and have twice the surface area because of peaks and troughs in the paint.
Graphics and large photographs can be printed on a transparent adhesive film or a more opaque film such as frosted window, which offers a decorative element to a boardroom or meeting room. The graphic can be viewed from both sides of the glass while providing privacy and letting the light come through the glass doors and windows.
There are many more materials to choose from and many other applications. Have a chat to us if you require to print a large image for your office space. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a quotation.

Another van signage installed for this Melbourne Bayside business, White Home Improvements (http://whitehomeimprovements.com.au/).
More and more small businesses are using their vehicle to attract local prospects and generate new leads in their operating area. Like having a website,
Here are a few tips from us on how to maximise your vehicle advertising while on a tight budget:
Before you start:
Check that the decal sticks to the transfer tape (see picture), not the waxy backing paper. If it doesn’t, place the decal (clear side up) on a smooth flat surface such as a table. Take a credit card and rub firmly across the entire decal. Start from the center and work out to the edges.
Step 1: Prepare the surface
Clean the surface thoroughly with alcohol or water and dry thoroughly. Don’t use Windex or similar as it will leave residue on the glass and prevent the sticker from adhering properly.
Step 2: Position the decal
Place the sticker on the desired area, level and center it. Use masking tape or scotch tape as a hinge to secure the decal (either at the top, bottom or either side).
Step 3: Peel off and remove the backing paper.
The decal will stick onto the transfer tape. If it doesn’t, place the decal back onto the backing paper and rub it in place firmly with a credit card. Peel off again carefully.
Completely remove the backing paper off.
Step 4: apply the sticker directly onto the surface
Rub the decal with a credit card or equivalent.
Step 5: Carefully peel away the transfer tape.
Start pulling from any corner at a tight angle across the vinyl decal. Be careful not to pull the sticker off the surface. If that happens, gently press the decal down onto the surface using your fingers or use the transfer tape and rub with the credit card as in Step 4.
Another great looking sign installed today on Bourke st for Go Markets' new offices.
We first installed a vinyl template on the wall (DPF4000) to later glue the letters on top. To Make sure the glue sticks on the wall and not just on the vinyl, the inside of each letter was weeded out.
The black lettering was laser cut from 20mm black acrylic and mounted on the wall using glue.
The green logo was the biggest "piece de résistance". First we had to design it and make it as 3D. Then each piece was spray painted individually with a different shade of green. The installation was a bit tricky. The challenge was to keep all the pieces together. We used small pins at the back and also applied silicon and glue. Mission accomplished!
Having already designed and installed window graphics for Experian in the past, 3D Sign Solutions was engaged through Simbuilt for this installation.
We printed the design on Utopia SV84 frosted film, which is a type of frosting film that can be used for printing.
3D Sign Solutions were engaged through Agero to perform the following signage installation for Goldwind Australia's brand new city offices at 31, Queen Street, Melbourne:
Acrylic Sign Reception Logo installation:
Each letter of the logo were individually laser cut, spray painted and stud-mounted on the wall for extra safety. We used acrylic as material and spray painted the Goldwind logo in blue (Pantone 3005C) and the lettering in grey (Pantone 425 C) for a great professional finish.
Feature Wall White Vinyl Graphic:
Branded vinyl graphics were installed on the wall to add some life to the working space. The client supplied the images, which were cut to measurements.
Feature walls are a great way to make corporate offices appear more human rather than a big blank office wall.
Boardroom and meeting room privacy film frosting with white vinyl feature:
Frosting was applied to the main boardroom and meeting rooms to provide privacy. The frosting was machine cut, based on the measurements for each window panel. To add some personal branding to the frosting, we added some vinyl cut lettering, which we applied on top of the frosting.
