More Magnet Sign Images

When I put the other magnet sign images up, the customer had not done the work on the letters yet.  By “work”, I mean the letters come on a sheet.  We cut all of the letters out with a plotter.  When the letters are done being cut, they are more “scored” then cut.  With a little folding of the magnet sheets, the letters will easily come out.  (If they don’t easily come out, they can be cut out with scissors.)

On the down side, we do ask the customers to cut out the magnet letters.  On the up side for them, all of the sheets have LOTS of extra fluorescent vinyl remaining once the letters are removed.  Our customers love the idea of using this excess magnet for punctuation (note the exclamation point above) or other “doo-dads” on their sign.  And, if you want magnet letters for any other purpose than magnet signs, we are happy to work with whatever requirements you may have.

Specifications On Our Fluorescent Vinyl

The vinyl we use outlast any other vinyls we have tried.  It does cost more, but we believe its life span makes its cost well worth it.

We do stock 5 of the 6 standard colors:  (We do not stock the blue.  If requested, for a large enough order, we could also stock.  The fluorescent blue is really to dark to show up well on black, but it would work on white coroplast.)

  • Yellow
  • Pink (Fuchsia)
  • Red
  • Orange
  • Green

Elegant Image Rental Sign

IMG_20150302_205753 IMG_20150302_205731

We just put up a sign for Elegant Image.  They chose to have a different message on both sides of the sign.  Half way through the month they have requested we flip the message.  (This will allow both directions to see the a different message for half of the month.

Also, notice what reflective vinyl can do when it is used for arrows!  It is like you are receiving subliminal nudging telling you to go to this business.

Ten Inch Letter Sets

CIMG0254

 

Recently, we had a little confusion with a customer.  They ordered our 10 inch letter set.  (Our letter panel is 10 inches, and the actual letter is 9 inches.  Our 8 inch letters have a panel of 7 15/16th inches with a letter of about 7 inches.  The 16 inch and 20 inch letters work out similarly.)  After they received our letters, we received an email back from them saying, “They don’t fit.”  Once they sent a sample of their existing letter set, it all made sense.

Our letter sets are made with black coroplast and a heavy duty fluorescent vinyl.  The black letter panels are cut to the correct size and the plotter-cut fluorescent vinyl is applied to the letter panel.  (See the smaller “N” above.”)  Another way of providing similar letters involves using a printer.  The letter above on the right is done on a printer.  It is printed on white coroplast.  The letters I sell are the letter sets developed by the gentlemen who held the black sign patent. (#6,108,955)

Bottom Line:  Both letter sets will work, but do to the printing process, the vinyl letter is likely to take a longer time to fade.  (Possible lasting 3 or 4 times longer)  SignsSeen can do different fonts on our letters sets.  If you are interested, please contact us!
