All About banners and Vinyl Banner Printing

Vinyl banners are an ideal multi-use reusable advertising product. For both interior and exterior uses, vinyl banners are the perfect material for conveying a message. Sporting events, religious gatherings, retail advertising, trade show promotions and just about any other type of message you might want to send can be stated on a banner.

Banners can be as simple as a one word message such as “SALE” or as complex as a full color photograph depicting a new product. Size is not a problem. How large or small a space do you have for displaying your banner? Banners can be printed to the size of a multi-story building or as small as a table top display. Vinyl banners are a versatile material that can be fabricated with sleeves stitched for poles or reinforced hems and grommets for installation over a city street.

There are many different banner weights and strengths for all types of installation situations. Vinyl banners can be easily washed with soap & water, are made of a soft pliable material that can be and rolled for easy shipping and storage.

There are two different methods of producing your image on a vinyl banner. Adhesive vinyl film that is computer cut and applied to the face of vinyl banners or digitally printed vinyl banners on a large format printer. The evolution of banner making has come a long way. First, there were hand-painted banners, then there were adhesive vinyl film applied to banners and now, most common is digitally printed banners. A combination of digital printing and adhesive vinyl film can be used when you want to reuse a banner year after year and just change the date and time of an event. Usually adhesive vinyl banners are produced when the lettering and graphics are simple and one or two colors. Digitally printed banners are produced when a photograph or multicolored graphic or background is needed.

Los Angeles Signs | All you need to know about SIGNS..........

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Mon, Oct 24, 2011 @ 06:10 AM

All you need to know about signs………

Signs are seen throughout the world in the form of corporate names on the side of buildings, traffic signs, office signs, lobby signs and way finding signs (the directional signs that point people in the right direction).   Custom signage makes the first impression for the place of business, and can indicate a type of business a person is about to engage with. What would we do without signs? 

An eye-catching office sign may get a consumer to stop in. A colorful and vibrant lobby sign in a dentist’s office may change a person’s mood, while a well-done way finding sign can alleviate a lot of confusion. The value is also showcased highly in corporate branding due to the fact that sign recognition is important for repeat business or customers, and helps with the promotion of a product or service.   For a wide example of custom signs for your business, please visit The  Sign Studio at  and fill in the quote form to start your next project!

Los Angeles Signs | Magnetic Car Signs........

Posted by Julie and Chris Ramirez on Mon, Oct 17, 2011 @ 06:10 AM

Magnetic Car Signs

You see them everywhere…magnetic car signs. Chances are you have either seen someone advertising their business with car magnets, or you yourself are advertising using car magnets. One thing is for sure, if you do use magnetic signs for advertising, the last thing you want is to pull over and find out that one or both of your magnetic signs have flown off of your vehicle. There are several reasons for this happening.

  1. You may have inferior magnetic sheeting. Make sure that when investing in car magnetic signs that you get the strongest possible material. The highest grade of magnetic material is 30 mil.
  2. You may have installed your magnetic signs improperly. The general rule is you want to place your car magnetic signs on the flattest smoothest surface possible. This means no placing the car magnetic signs over emblems or molding and make sure you avoid any freshly repaired or bondo areas where there may be less steel to help adhere your magnetic signs to the body of the vehicle.
  3. One other reason your magnetic signs could blow off could be that the corners of your magnetic signs were not rounded. If your corners are straight edge cuts, after time these corners tend to curl up or “dog ear” which allows air to get between your car magnetic and the vehicle surface. All it takes is a small pocket to let air in between and next thing you know you are dodging traffic trying to retrieve you magnetic sign(s) that just blew off.

Ultimately, you just want to make sure that when purchasing car magnetic signs, you are getting the best possible quality magnetic sign material on the market. Also, make sure that you take care of them and perform routine maintenance to ensure that you get the maximum affect from your magnetic car signs. Taking the couple of minutes to ensure that your magnetic signs are clean and free from debris, could be the difference between you and your competition. Your customers can’t read your advertisement if your magnetic signs are laying on the highway instead of your vehicle door.
