High definition metallic prints have become increasingly popular for exhibits, galleries, home and office décor. They are available with a white base or as a silver base, both producing vibrant colors and stunning image clarity. The metallic silver base adds a dimension or depth to the artwork that cannot be created with ink alone. The shimmer or luminescence added to the print is almost magical.
The prints are made using a dye-sublimation process. The inks are transferred to the metal ... Continue Reading →
Mesh banners are a fantastic alternative to traditional vinyl banners for many outdoor applications, especially when used on fences or in open areas. Mesh banners are vinyl banners constructed with an open weave. The tiny holes allow for air, light and sound to easily pass through. Just like any vinyl banner, mesh banners support high resolution UV printing. Outdoor mesh banners not only look excellent, but they hold up in the elements too!

Hanging banners is a great way to get publicity for an event. They can be strategically placed in high traffic areas and are seen by both foot traffic and road traffic.

Jes here. I am the Marketing Manager at SignCenter. I wanted to share some thoughts on dye-sublimated graphics for tradeshow booths. As someone who travelled to international tradeshows in the early 2000’s and was frequently responsible for set up and breakdown of trade show booths, I cannot stress enough how jealous I am that we did not have full color dye-sublimated fabric booths then. I see how far the print technologies have come with fabric and how they have literally ... Continue Reading →
You know those moments when someone says just the right thing and it puts everything into proper perspective? Well, we had one of those moments last week. A longtime customer was in and was discussing how important SignCenter is to him as a trade partner. He said, “I wish I knew about you guys years ago, before I invested in all of that equipment and lost my shirt.”
“I invested in all of that equipment and lost my shirt.” THIS! Continue Reading →

What is OOH?
OOH advertising focuses on reaching ... Continue Reading →

At that price it seems surprising that nearly a third of the messaging space on a typical tradeshow booth is wasted: the floor. Fortunately, there are great new options for that lowly but valuable surface.
Floor graphics are an area that have seen vast ... Continue Reading →
