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.

Quality Signage Hardware

What makes a backdrop, a backdrop?
The display hardware!

Yes, there are many levels of quality that can be purchased to display a banner or backdrop and the “lower end” hardware will often fail due to structural issues. Lightweight materials cost much less and offers the opportunity to greatly lower the price of a banner – backdrop. There are a variety of quality levels available for every sign hardware, some instances may benefit from a “one and done” sign, in those cases the lower quality hardware is fine.

Retractable Banners

Retractable Banners

Retractable banner stands work much like a window blind, it has a spring inside the hardware, pulling the banner from the base puts tension on the spring and once released, the banner will withdraw into the base. “Low end” hardware uses lightweight aluminum and plastic parts that will break, even under normal use. Banners that will not retract have broken springs that cannot be replaced.

We offer a premium, multi-use hardware with a *1-year warranty. We also offer the ability to replace the printed banner, but only in the premium hardware that we sold. If the banner we sold you is damaged, we can replace it without the cost of new hardware.
