Help your customers make bold statements with their signage.
From durable outdoor banners that can withstand the weather for several seasons to indoor promotional posters that change on a daily basis, large format printing allows you creativity and flexibility for your signage needs. New advances in digital printing mean being able to print ADA-compliant braille signage cost-effectively. Traffic and safety signage can be printed directly on wood or metal. Being able to customize on short-runs and endlessly tailor to your customers, means higher-margin products that can’t be found elsewhere.
Explore all the signage applications you can create.
Located mainly in commercial and industrial areas on major local roads, outdoor banners typically are very vibrant and colorful and viewed primarily by people in automobiles or pedestrians. Whether they are displayed at a bus stop, local nightclub, or outdoor shopping center, outdoor banners are a fantastic way for you to attract new business.
Outdoor banners are considered short term and can be used for sale items, promotional events, advertisements for local events, and many more. Outdoor banners can be printed on a variety of weather-resistant media such as Tyvek® and vinyl but can also be laminated to increase the longevity of the banner.
Exhibition/trade show graphics as well as retail POP displays and other indoor banners are ideal applications to add to your business offering.
Convention centers, retail spaces, and sporting events are the ideal market for indoor banners. Indoor banners can have many different display options such as roll-up or pop-up displays, X banners as well as a simple grommet banner tied down.
Indoor banners are typically printed on a sturdy media that allows the graphics to pop such as vinyl material, polypropylene or soft banner material.
Partially due to legal compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which passed into law in 1990, Braille signage is everywhere. Until recently, production of ADA-compliant braille signs was done either mechanically by drilling holes into a rigid substrate, inserting beads and applying thick tactile lettering, or by casting the sign from molten plastic or metal. Both methods are laborious and expensive.
With advances in digital printing - particularly 3D printing and UV-curable inkjet printing - ADA-compliant braille signage can now be produced more quickly and at a much lower cost by sing digital printing.
Due to the exceptional accuracy of the Océ Arizona® UV flatbed printer and its stationary table architecture, an ink drop can be placed on top of another ink drop to build up braille characters to exacting dimensions and produce the tactile lettering all at the same time. Our innovative line of products gives you low-cost and efficient production. Whether you create just one or one hundred — each braille sign costs the same.
What sets event signage apart is that the signage is usually tailored to that specific event and as a result may be discarded after the event. This short-term application can help you increase your bottom line. Event signage is used to build themes, educate event attendees, and promote events.
Examples of event signage are simple paper-based posters in click frames, backlit displays, roll-up banners, A-frame displays or hanging banners. Events signage is typically needed for theaters, concerts, conventions, corporate events, charitable events, store openings, festivals, sporting events, product launches, or family events such as weddings or birthdays.
Located mainly in commercial and industrial areas, outdoor posters are viewed principally by people in automobiles or pedestrians and deliver exposure to residents and to commuter traffic.
Outdoor posters are considered short-term solutions that can be used to display products, promote events, and other messaging for your customers. Outdoor posters can be printed on a variety of weather-resistant media such as Tyvek® and vinyl but can also be laminated to increase the longevity of the poster.
With high customer value and low production cost, indoor poster applications can help grow your business. Posters can be printed on inexpensive media such as 24# bond as well as more durable media such as vinyl.
Indoor posters are particularly effective for indoor marketing campaigns including store signage, special offers, sales, and upcoming events. Posters are usually large enough to be noticed from a fair distance and can be displayed almost anywhere to draw a captive audience. For example, waiting rooms, offices, and retail stores are great places for your customers to promote their brand with indoor posters.
Safety signage clearly conveys important information, such as safety reminders or compliance information. Safety signage not only reduces risk of accidents and injuries but can reduce a company’s risk of litigation by fulfilling their “duty to warn”.
Safety signage requires a high level of durability so rigid media is ideal. Examples of safety signage includes OSHA, chemical hazmat, NFPA 704 Diamond, DOT - DOD Hazard, exit and entrance, fire safety and fire exit, parking control, no smoking, hand washing, park & recreation, water safety, ANSI, or safety tags signs.
Usually intended for one-time or short-term use, yard signs can be fun and functional - whether for drawing attention to a garage sale, an open house, promoting a child’s school or sports team, announcing special events like graduations or corporate golf outings, and much more.
Yard signs are printed using and Océ Arizona® Series printer and are typically printed onto inexpensive corrugated plastic - either single- or double-sided - and can be easily displayed by using an H-shaped piece of wire inserted into the bottom flutes and then inserted into the lawn.
