Choosing the right signage equipment comes down to what you need to create your sign. You need to have an idea what you want to create. Factors such as size, thickness, longevity and application surface need to be considered. Vinyl cutter plotters enable you to cut individual letters or shapes from one piece of vinyl, ready for direct application to a surface. Large format printers have the capability of printing anything up to five metres in width such as billboard size. Using a wide format laminator is important to protect the surface of the sign to prolong its life. Modern trimmers allow you to cut a diverse range of substrates, such as paper, vinyl and aluminium composite panel.
