Vinyl Signs are one of the most popular forms of indoor and outdoor signage in the San Francisco Bay Area. Vinyl signs are also widely used for indoor purposes. Vinyl advertising is usually on offer in several different sizes, depending on the requirements of the client. Large and detailed vinyl signs can be customized to meet the specific needs of the clients. These signs can be flexible, portable and come in many different materials.
As an indoor/outdoor advertising medium, vinyl signs are available in three common options; magnetic, cloth and hand-painted. Magnetic vinyl signs are made by imprinting magnetic materials such as aluminum or steel into the plastic base material. Cloth vinyl signs are printed on both sides using a textured fabric. Hand-painted vinyl signs are painted directly onto a custom vinyl surface. The finishing techniques used in these types of signs will depend on the requirements of the client. All three types are lightweight and easy to transport and install.
As an outdoor signage product, vinyl signs are designed to withstand the effects of weather. Signs made from vinyl materials are suitable for outside on all types of surfaces such as brick exteriors. They are also resistant to ozone and UV exposure. Cloth vinyl signs are ideal for outdoor use because of their lightweight and durable construction. In addition, they are available in a variety of bright colors, including neon colors. Cloth vinyl graphics are great for indoor uses, but they may not be as effective as magnetic and hand painted images.
The most commonly used form of vinyl sign material is a two-sided adhesive. Originally, vinyl adhesives were composed primarily of three different types of materials: acetate/acetone based adhesives, ethyl acetate (EVA) based adhesives and n-methyl-acrylate (NMA) based adhesives. However, newer technology has produced more advanced adhesives that can be customized for specific applications. Acetate-based adhesives are commonly used to mount vinyl signs, while all other forms of vinyl signs can be installed using one of the other three types of adhesives. When purchasing a vinyl sign form a sign company, it is important to ask whether the company uses the advanced technologies available to ensure the highest performance and durability of the vinyl signs.
For the home, vinyl signs come in a variety of sizes and colors. These signs can be designed to accommodate different graphic needs, such as a business name, image or message. It is important to keep in mind that the colors and sizes of the graphics on the front of the signs will determine the amount of space needed to display the sign. Another aspect of this aspect is the amount of lighting that the sign will need in order to effectively highlight the graphics. Once again, when asking the sign making company about their vinyl signs, it is important to get an accurate basic guide to understand the size and dimensions of the signs.
The most common graphics that are found on these signs include; text, logos, icons, banner graphics, photos, clip arts and sketches. A good sign company will provide you with a range of different graphics to choose from to make your vinyl signs as unique as possible. One of the most popular types of vinyl banners used in modern marketing campaigns are the hand-painted vinyl signs, which are produced by using a stencil and paint technique.
