Mixing digitally printed vinyl graphics with dimensional signs

By Typestries, January 10, 2007

Here’s a sign comprising one of our successful signmaking techniques: the marriage of digitally printed signs with dimensional signs. All to often in the digital world, designers think in “flat” and add “fake” dimension in the form of soft Photoshop shadows. That’s a great way to harness the power of digital signmaking. An even better way is to combine our technologies. By utilizing our digital printers in combination with our computerized routing and cutting capabilities, we’re able to take digitally imaged signage to the next level. Since I took this shot after dark with headlights blearing, it’s difficult to see the dimensional effect of the layers of this sign. Under normal viewing conditions, this effect works very well. All of the type sits above the background, and all of the graphics are high resolution solvent ink digital prints on Oracal vinyl.
