How does the vinyl printing process work?
Vinyl printing on signs is a great product that can help businesses in a variety of different situations. From signs to logos to pictures, vinyl cutting technologies allow us put pretty much anything we want on a sign. At Burry Signs we provide professional vinyl printing services to everyone in the Greater Toronto Area. Vinyl printing offers a clean, professional look in whatever design and colour you like.
What is vinyl printing?
Vinyl printing uses the latest computer technologies connected with a mechanical cutter to recreate a digital image on a sheet of coloured vinyl. Once you’ve successfully cut the design you want from the vinyl, it can then be attached to anything you like, from t-shirts to banners to car windshields.
The process begins with an idea and some design software. The design can be whatever you or your business needs but the file has to be a format compatible with the cutting hardware. In order to give the proper instructions to the cutter, the images will have to be in vector format, which not every design program does.
Once you have your digital image, you can give it to your local vinyl printing experts in Toronto who can feed it into their computer, which instructs the cutter to make a light cut in a sheet of vinyl in the desired shape after which the excess vinyl can be removed and the design prepared to be attached to whatever you like.
Exactly how the vinyl will be prepared will depend somewhat on what you want to attach the vinyl to. Cloth banners, glass, and t-shirts all are different kinds of surfaces and may require special processes. Generally, however, a special kind of double-sided tape cut in the exact shape of the design is more than enough to firmly attach the vinyl to any surface for years. Be sure that the tape is cut in the exact shape of the design. Otherwise, the corners of your design will start to curl sooner rather than later.
Now that the adhesive is on your design, it’s ready to be attached. Many people who get vinyl designs printed like to save a little money on labour costs by attaching them personally to whatever surface they like, but it can sometimes be tricky to get everything exactly straight. Don’t be afraid to pay a professional to do it for you.
