Flags, banners and even yard signs have been around since the beginning of our time, and have always been prone to fading since their beginning. Most of these products are so poorly made by other sign companies that they fade when exposed to just normal sunlight weather. In areas of the world where extreme weather plays a role, they instantly fade within their first week. No sign should fade because of the sun, if anything the sun should help the sign stick out and shine bright. This is what we stand for at Quality Sign Designer.
Sign companies sadly invest in really poor printers, or they will have their signs subcontracted to a sign manufacturer with a poor printer. Their reasoning behind this is sadly profit. A cheaper printer while charging higher prices on signs, flags and banners is how they get by with their low prices. Often times the public will fall into their trap and will buy their cheap sign. Once purchased the customer will be lucky if the sign even lasts them one year. In fact, some people have the belief that signs only last a year because they’ve bought from these companies their whole life.
The truth is your sign, or flag, can last for many years. Easily five years. It just needs to be made by the company that has a high quality printer.
Liquid Lamination – The Secret Sauce
What makes us different here at Quality Sign Designer is our printer applies a liquid laminate coat onto each of our products. This laminates the sign or flag with a sealant coat that protects the inks from melting, with it still looking 100% natural. With some banners it does add a deeper glossy look and feel to the sign as well.
On top of that, we also use a good strong quality natural green-based dye, and a good quality double stitched material that is the sign or flag. Combine all of these factors and you have a product that’s very fade resistant.
Temperatures can get very hot if you live down in the southern part of America. On the west coast the dry heat can be very burning hot. The sun can fade out the ink on your sign, be sure to go with us and receive the highest quality sign or flag, for the lowest price.
