Cut-out letterforms

Routed, Laser-cut, water-jet cut or hand fret cut from almost any material. The most popular for signmaking is Acrylic although Stainless steel is very fashionable at the moment. Foam letters are hardly used any more because of their short life in the harsh Queensland sun. Mainly glued or fixed directly to the wall, cut-out letters can also be stood off in several ways or incorporated into a panel sign in multiple layers for extra effect.

Digital printed signage

It’s much the same as the desk top printer your computer uses, except in the sign industry the printers are several metres wide and print at much higher resolution. We can also print onto many different materials, from special papers, banner vinyls to signwriter’s self-adhesive vinyl. Nearly all the billboards you see along the roadsides today are digitally printed onto vinyl (referred to as skins) and stretched over the billboard. An increasing number of illuminated signs also have digitally printed faces (flex faces), especially the larger ones, which can be produced in a single piece instead of sections using traditional methods.
