  • Customer supplies Artwork ( preferable print ready )

  • We can design or sort your artwork if required

Banners Printing Services

Banner printing is one of the most used sign types around you can see these signs absolutely  everywhere and rightly so as they are cheap, long lasting can be made in any size and in a variety of banner materials , here at cutting edge design we normally use a 450gram banner material as this is right in the sweet spot of quality vs price , more than strong enough for any application, all our banners come with seems welded via banner tape and steel eyelets so its ready to go all you have to do is fit it , this sign type can be used indoors or outside its very versatile.

Mesh Banner

A Mesh Banner is just the same as a standard Banner the only difference is this banner material is full of tiny holes to allow wind to pass through , this is used a lot around areas where wind is acting on the sign with a standard a banner wind basically turns the banner a sail and if the wind Is strong enough it can rip the banner so a mesh banner would be best suited in these conditions again this banner comes seemed and eyeleted ready to fit . used mainly outdoors in windy conditions also allows you to see through the banner so it’s not total blocking the background behind it

Roller Banner

Roller Banners also known as pop up banners are another popular type of display the good thing with these signs is they can be taken down if not required by simple lifting them on the holder hook ,

The banner itself is housed in a roller mechanism at the base of the unit basically the banner is in a roll  in the base,  you pull it up and attach it to  the top of long pole which is supplied with the unit really simple but very effective for indoor applications, this pop up banner can be double sided and comes in a 2 main sizes 1m wide or 600mm wide both 2m tall

Printed roll vinyl

A lot of trade work is based around printed roll media where we simply print your artwork onto whatever substrate you have requested this tends to be vinyl we provide 3 types of vinyl all different in application and costs

Vinyl in order

Monomeric vinyl is perfectly fine for most flat sign applications , this material can be used indoor and out we no problems , monomeric is the cheapest of all the vinyl range and works really well pretty much the go to vinyl for a cheaper short term sign

Monomeric

Polymeric would be the next step up from monomeric this vinyl is a better grade and has twice as much polymer in it as the cheaper monomeric hence the name, This vinyl is used for longer term signage and can even for formed over a small curve if done right , Polymeric would be used a lot in car signage ( not for wrapping ) for its durability , add lamination on top of the polymeric and you have a really good long lasting print which will take weather and harsh conditions really well

Cast Vinyl is very dear its primary use is for wrapping cars or other surfaces with curves and undulations, The reason is so dear is the way its made but the good thing with this material if applied right it will conform to the curve or shape wrapping itself over that part like a second skin  , if done right its very effective a lot of cars use this method now to add full over graphics or colour change ,

please note cast need a lot of right conditions to apply correctly and its very expensive so be careful with this material , 

Also don’t forget to add some lamination to you vinyl to give it longer outdoor life as this normally doubles the life of the vinyl before it starts to fade so it can be well worth the extra cost to add this option

Stickers

Everyone knows and loves stickers something we do daily , the good thing with stickers is you can apply them to almost any smooth surface, you can make them in any shape or size make them even cooler with a funky contour cut the possibilities are endless with stickers , these can be very cost effective for what they can do ,

Display you logo or message anywhere with handy in your pocket stickers , simply peel and stick

Print and CNC cut

With our print and CNC cut service you don’t need to worry about applying any graphics to your background panels, this service provides you ready to go signs ,With our print and cnc cut we have the ability  to print and apply direct to the substate then we will CNC machine the signs to final shape saving you a lot of time by removing the labour required to manually apply the vinyl, This is very effective when you have a number of smaller panels and multi sheets of the same sign, we normally use 8x4 or 10x5 sheets for this but smaller sheet can be used to just depends on ytour requirements also the sheets can be all the same sign or a mix of various signs ,

The process is quite simple we layout all the signs on the computer within the correct sheet size with cut outlines same as normally cut stickers , we print the vinyl with reg marks apply this to the sheet through our laminator then take it to the cnc for final cutting , once cnc cut they are ready to go its that simple

Laminating

The laminator is used to add another layer of clear vinyl to prints this clear layer adds twice as much protection to your print helping it to withstand damages from scraps and U.V. Light , The over laminate comes in 2 main finishes a clear gloss and a clear matt effect both have their benefits, you can also apply a non-slip overlay which is used in floor graphics. We would highly recommend laminating as it really increases print durability and longevity
