An important, and often overlooked aspect of sign building is the quality of materials used. Knowing the quality of materials being used in your sign or banner is just as important as the experience level of the people you entrust with your company's image.

Quality materials provide longevity.Signs are an investment, and should last as long as the investment requires. The high quality materials @Sign employs for their sign production provide wear, tear and fade resistance. Superior adhesion vinyls, and durable poly materials also provide years of interior and exterior usage. Signs and Banners may consist of both FLEXIBLE and/or rigid media, and may be made up of many types of materials to achieve the desired end effect.

Below are descriptions of the most often used materials in AtSign Creations:

FLEXIBLE MEDIA

VINYL LETTERING

Vinyl Lettering MaterialQuality lettering material is essential. For lettering @Sign uses Pressure Sensitive Vinyl. Also used for background fills in magnetic signage, Pressure sensitive vinyls are available in two grades, each with different properties.

  • (ST) Standard vinyl is offered in the full pallet range for use on any sign, interior or exterior. Standard vinyl (3MIL), has a matte finish, and provides a high performance:cost ratio. Particularly useful in attracting people from a distance, where a glossy finish is not necessary. Standard Vinyl is rated at 5 Year exterior durability.
  • (HP) High Performance Vinyl is suggested when a glossy high detail finish is desired. HP Vinyl (2MIL), provides extended durability with a 6 - 8 year exterior rating. HP Vinyl offers an extended range of colors and special pallets. For High Impact signage, ask about Translucent, Florescent and Neon color vinyls.
