Did you know that you can create signs for your businesses in many ways? One of the most versatile ways to make one is with cut vinyl, which is extraordinarily handy and durable in and of itself. If you aren’t familiar with it, it is merely decals that are die-cut from rolls of vinyl. As you can tell, the colour of the vinyl will depend on the colour of the roll itself. To make colourful signage, you will need to layer multiple pieces of vinyl together to create an image, such as your business logo.
In this article, we will share with you three ways that cut vinyl can be used to create signage:
1. Perforated Window
If you’ve seen graphic-implemented buildings that allow light to enter through tiny holes, that’s perforated window vinyl. This is an excellent option for many reasons. First, it doesn’t block too much light from entering a room, meaning that the vinyl can be applied on any window while still allowing a sufficient amount of exterior lighting to enter. This is great for places such as office spaces, where instead of merely using a window tint to reduce light, businesses can use perforated window vinyl to achieve that and decorate the windows with graphics at the same time.
If you’re looking for a durable type of signage that is also easy to remove, consider opting for Phototex. It is a type of fabric that has an adhesive on its back so that you can stick them on many surfaces around your property. Because the adhesive is embedded into the fabric itself, removing it won’t leave any residue, making it perfect for signs that have to be replaced quite often. When you only have short-term installations of cut vinyl, use Phototex!
3. Heat Transfer
If you have always wanted to put vinyl graphics onto fabrics, such as shirts, then this option will be your best bet in doing so. It works in a similar way to cut vinyl, where it is placed on a surface with the design being stuck to the surface.
One of the primary reasons heat transfer vinyl is popular with fabrics is its robust and strong bonding with fabrics. The heat essentially softens the adhesive, allowing any logo or wording to embed into the piece of cloth, permanently sealing it in place.
At this point, you now have a broader idea of the various ways that you can use cut vinyl to create signage. When you go about creating your signage, it is important to consider what you’re going to work with. For example, if you’re going to work with fabrics and want the vinyl to be imprinted on, use heat transfer vinyl. When you want to cover the windows of your building with graphics while allowing sufficient amounts of light to penetrate into the workspace, consider perforated window vinyl. In other words, which method you end up using will depend on what kind of signage you want to create!
