The Christmas Tree Story

Christmas Tree

Each year we celebrate Christmas with family, friends and co-workers, many of us erect an evergreen tree in our homes as a symbol of Christmas, below is my version of the meaning of the Christmas Tree.



The initial historical mention of using the evergreen at Christmas was in 12th century Germany, and it was referred to as a “Paradise Tree”. An evergreen fir was erected during the Christmas season as a symbol of the tree of life, which was in the Garden of Eden. The evergreen fir was considered a sign of hope that the spring season was forthcoming, because the fir endured the harsh European winters. Simply enough, through Jesus Christ, we have the hope of everlasting life.

In short; the evergreen lives through winter (difficult times) without fading or losing its needles, many people believe the Christmas Tree represents the immortality of the resurrected Christ.

The lights on the first Christmas Tree were candles, which were to symbolize Christ and his eternal life gift to us. Candles give us light and warmth as it consumes the wax, it’s made from, Jesus gave of his own substance, his life (wax), so that we might find a divine light. Once we discover the divine light for ourselves, we can, through the power of the Holy Spirit, give of ourselves to others.


Thank you to all our friends, vendors and customers, we exist for you and we appreciate your support.

Everyone here at Heritage wishes you a very Merry Christmas!

Second Surface Printing

Second Surface Window Graphics

Business owners and managers understand what storefront window graphics are and how effective they are in promoting foot traffic. What they don’t know is how the vinyl is printed.

Second surface is the practice of printing on the face (adhesive side) of the vinyl. This process enables the vinyl to be installed inside the building, away from the outdoor elements. Second surface graphics are protected from weather and exploring hands thus typically have a longer life expectancy than first surface.

Second surface graphics are printed in a “mirror image” to be a right reading image for viewers. A print ready image for second surface will be inverted in order to print as a first surface piece.

It’s more than just vinyl!

Second surface is used on many acrylic signage, it provides a richer, elegant appearance of the sign, especially a standoff lobby sign. Printing directly to the substrate, albeit acrylic, vinyl or glass, is done with any image, regardless of orientation.
