Adhesive vinyl outdoor signs are widely used to brand businesses. They can be installed onto walls, fences, doors, windows, and more to advertise a company’s message. Unlike interior signage, the sign graphic for outdoor use will be exposed to severe weather, so it will be crucial that they are weather-resistant and wear-resistant.
Outdoor Signs Fabricating Method
Simply put, screen printing is applying ink manually to the vinyl to create lettering and graphics by using stencils. Usually, there is more than one layer of color. The screen-printed graphics usually have high-quality images and text with sharp lines. This method is often applied when a large number of the same vinyl outdoor banner is needed.
ACME has large-format digital printers that use top-quality inks in a variety of forms, including water-based inks, standard solvent-based inks, or eco-solvent inks. Digital printers can produce photo-quality prints on vinyl banner material quickly and inexpensively. To extend digital printed outdoor signs lifespan, we will add an overlaminate to make them stand up against rain, snow, and sun.
Types of Outdoor Signs
Building graphics for outdoor walls
Exterior wall graphics are an incredible way to catch the eye of people passing by and grab the attention of potential customers. The large-format personalized outdoor signs and graphics can refresh building exteriors. To protect graphics from harsh outdoor conditions, ACME-made outdoor vinyl wall graphics are specially designed with substrates and laminates that pair with concrete, brick, and stone veneers. With proper care, the vinyl wall wraps can last longer than a regular paint job.
Outdoor Vinyl Decals and Graphics
Outdoor decals are widely used for events, such as promoting a new product, holding a wedding or party. ACME offers versatile options of vinyl decals. They can be easily applied to buildings, vehicles, walls, or outdoor tabletop.
Billboard belongs to large format outdoor advertising signage. It’s made with vinyl banners pulled tight over billboard frames. And since they are exposed to the outdoors, billboard wrapping needs to be fabricated with high-quality vinyl materials in order to prevent ripping or stretching during mounting.
Q: What is the lifespan of outdoor signs?
A: ACME provides graphic solutions based on customers’ requirements. And the lifespan is determined according to the applications and needs. In general, the lifespan of graphics and decals for outdoor use is 3~5 years.
