Adding custom signage to your company or business will increase the visibility of your brand to potential customers or clients. Vinyl is one of the most common materials used for creating custom signage. Vinyl can be cut into all shapes and sizes, printed on, laminated, or it can even be used to wrap vehicles. The material has an adhesive back that can be applied to a sign, wall, or window. Vinyl can come in a few different variations and it can be cost effective.
The categories of vinyl include: cast or calendered which can be printed or pigmented. The cast and calendered vinyl go through different manufacturing processes. Printed vinyl will come out completely white and has the color printed on it. Pigmented vinyl will come our with the color baked into it and will be cut into shapes to create the preferred graphic of the clients choosing. Now, let's go more in depth of what each of these types of vinyl include.
This type of vinyl is typically used for vehicle wrap. Cast vinyl is made by pouring a liquid form into a mold. It will then slowly cool, and be reheated to cure. By following this process, it creates a more durable, flexible, and expensive vinyl. These last twice as long as a calendered vinyl. Cast vinyl has the ability to stretch which makes it perfect for wrapping vehicles.
This type of vinyl is less durable, cheaper, and less flexible. Calendered vinyl is made by taking a large amount of vinyl and pressing it with rollers into a flat square sheet. Because it is stretched into final form it is considered stiff and sensitive to wear.
This type of vinyl is almost always pigmented. Cut Vinyl is used to make graphics of one or more colors. This will go into the plotting machine that will cut the vinyl with a small blade, keeping the vinyl intact. Once the vinyl is cut, you then are able to peel the excess vinyl to reveal the finished image. Cut vinyl can be calendered or cast. Once it is cut, it will then be able to be weeded and taped. Taping will allow you to remove it from the backing of the paper while keeping the design intact.
