ACME Vehicle Graphics Printing Process
6 production lines including screen printing, digital printing, wide-format, latex.
Our in-house design staff can provide cost-effective design service for vehicle wraps or fleet graphics. Besides, we also cooperate with well-known design studios in this field to complete large projects. You can send us your design in ai./cdr./eps./pdf./tif./gif./bmp. format or just tell us your ideas.
Material – 3M Adhesive Vinyl Film
- Conforms to flat surfaces, with and without rivets, simple curves, compound curves, and corrugations.
- With low initial adhesion and pressure-activated adhesive, easy to re-position graphics.
- Back adhesive with air release channels for fast and easy, bubble-free graphic installations.
- Durable, scratch-resistant, and water-resistant(does not include immersion).
Digital Printing – HP Latex Inks
- Light-fade resistance
- Scratch and abrasion resistance
- Water and chemical resistance
The table below shows the expected life of prints produced with HP latex inks on self-adhesive vinyl based on internal testing by HP Image Permanence Lab:
|Outdoor (no lamination)||Outdoor (with lamination film)||Indoor in the window (no lamination)|
|3M self-adhesive vinyl||Up to 3 years||Up to 6 years||Up to 5 years|
We can also produce graphics with solvent inks by Epson printer. Sometimes, for some special graphics effects, our graphic solutions may consist of different printing methods together in one design.
ACME will apply a transparent film lamination on top of printed graphics as a layer of protection. This finishing technique will increase the durability of the print and can modify its appearances, such as a gloss or matte finish.
After printing, the vinyl graphics have to be cut according to the dimensions of the vehicle or the designed layout. Precision cutting is done by a digital cutter that already had the shape programmed in the computer. Before installation, the unwanted trims and borders from the carved vinyl had to be removed. This step is called “weeding.” All these preparations ensure a smooth installation.
Each piece of ACME graphic products will be inspected, we have a strict QC system and professional inspection equipment. Besides, our effective after-sales service will ensure you won’t have any worries after purchasing. ACME provides lifetime FREE consulting services.
