Signage Systems - Keeping up to date
The signs industry is very much a dynamic industry, needing to respond quickly to changes in areas such as health and safety legislation as well as changing fashion and requirements in the display industry.
It is important that a company, such as Alpha Signs & Engraving, should be able to respond to these needs through investment in new technology, but also acknowledging and retaining older technologies where these remain relevant to customers’ needs.
Engraving remains a strong part of the business, but has been joined by a range of print systems from manual screen printing, though inkjet technology to the latest UV system. The range of media and finishing systems are also constantly being reviewed and updated.
Alpha Signs & Engraving’s latest machine, the Apollo Digital UV large format printer, is a major investment, but is also a major benefit to the business. It can handle media up to 2.2m wide and 60mm thick as well as being able to print on to a wide range of media. It will also handle many of the jobs formerly done by screen printing.
The choice of printing method will depend very much on the application and related to this is the need to protect the work, often using lamination.
Alpha Signs & Engraving is also more than happy to offer supplies and advice for do-it-yourself signs projects.
The growth of email and the internet has been a major benefit to Alpha Signs & Engraving with a high proportion or orders received and proofed using this media. Just remember one thing. The technology may change but the service stays the same!!
