Custom Graphic Solutions

Diverse processes create custom graphic solutions that integrate into your application, engineered to suit your industry and application requirements. The robust printing process protects graphics from abrasion, weathering, and exposure to UV rays, chemicals, dust, grease, and heavy handling. For applications requiring first surface printing, a protective overlaminate can be applied for added durability and protection. 

 

Labels

Labels and decals are cost effective solutions to showcase a company name or logo on a product to build brand awareness. Caution and warning labels convey critical information to equipment operators and consumers. Labels can be offered as individual cut pieces, in strips or rolls, or in kits depending on the application and assembly needs.

Overlays

Overlays are functional components that act as interface for touchscreens or stand alone product branding for electronic devices, appliances, and medical equipment. An overlay is often the first thing a user notices about a product.

Polycarbonate and polyester graphic overlays are custom designed for maximum durability and legibility for indoor and outdoor applications, including exposure to extreme temperatures, ultraviolet (UV), chemicals and cleaning solutions.

Durable Materials

Choosing the right material for graphic overlays and labels means understanding the application and requirements. A variety of flexible material options is stocked that provide the right protection along with the functionality, durability, and custom decoration needed for your design. 

Plastic

A variety of plastic material options is stocked that provide the right protection along with the functionality, durability, and custom decoration needed for your design. 

  • Polyester (Mylar) - thin, flexible material that typically is coupled with an overlaminate for robust resistance to chemicals and harsh elements. 

  • Polycarbonate (Lexan) - available in thicknesses up to .030", offering a durable solution that resist abrasions and stand up to exposure to cleaning solutions, chemicals, or other harsh environments.

  • Vinyl - material of choice for caution and warning labels due to its flexible nature and relatively low price point. It can also be used for asset tags and point of purchase display branding. 

Metal 

Metal is a durable material suitable for industrial control panels on products exposed to harsh environments.  

  • Aluminum - metal of choice for durable, lightweight panels with a premium look. It can take on the appearance of other metals like brass or stainless steel by applying transparent tints of color to the surface.  

  • Stainless Steel - popular substrate for metal panels within harsh environments. It is corrosive and dent resistant. Its strength makes stainless steel ideal for industrial settings and applications.
