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:
- Alucobond (Aluminium Composite) – Aluminium composite is designed for long lasting outdoor use in all weather conditions. It's the best choice when the sign needs to support its own weight on a fence or post. It can be fixed with screws or double-sided adhesive pads.
- Aluminium Sheets - a bit heavier than aluminium composite and a bit cheaper, Aluminium is typically used for Ute tray signage, where the sign is exposed to the elements. The graphic or business logo is printed on the vinyl, which is then installed on the aluminium sheet.
- Corflute – Corrugated plastic is ideal for temporary use on building and construction sites and can be easily fixed to chain wire fences. It is a very cheap option, however, due to the lightness of the material, it doesn't last very well under the weather.
- Acrylic - The use of acrylic is very popular for receptions signs as it provides luminescence and depth to logos and brands. Take a look at our image gallery to check our acrylic signs projects.
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.
