Have you noticed when you’re out in public walking down the street or taking in a shopping mall how many signs there are just looking at you begging for your attention? Hundreds, even thousands of signs in all shapes, sizes, colors and styles. Some that are permanent, some that light up and then some just hang on a wall or a pole. The point is; signs are a very big part of our everyday life and for those working in the sign industry, this is a big and demanding commitment. One specific type of vinyl sign media that I want to focus on today is PET printable vinyl. The acronym, PET stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate. Polyethylene is a polymerized thermoplastic ethylene resin, used to make vinyl film and Terephthalate is a thermoplastic polyester resin made from ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid, also used to make films or fibers, like what is used for water bottles. Polyethylene terephthalate has high strength, is flexible and resistant to abrasion. The addition of these laminated films make for an extraordinarily smooth and scrim-less vinyl that works extremely well for print media. Value Vinyls sells PET Sign Media Printable Vinyl which is one of our most popular products. PET Frontlit and PET Blockout banner material is widely accepted for the quality of the fabric and the graphics that are produced. Value Vinyls Rio Extra PET 13 oz.

When it comes to billboard style advertising, Building Wraps have become a popular way of plastering a colorful graphic with a good message on the side of a tall building. This is mega marketing at its best! Advertising by way of Building Wraps have become big business and it speaks for itself all over the country, especially in larger metropolitan cities. These amazingly vivid works of art can be looked at in one aspect as advertisements that transition a space on the side of a building into a marketing device which not only will grab one’s attention, but results in generating sales. Building Wraps are also used to mask construction sites where building renovations are being done, even to show the new architectural design of how the building will look by printing a representation of it on the Building Wrap itself. Building Wraps can be customized to cover most any shape structure. They can also be custom fit to hide scaffolding that is set up in front of a building. Building codes must be addressed when putting up a Building Wrap and because this type of signage is temporary, compliance with city codes are usually not as time consuming with fewer permit approvals compared to permanent signs. Using the right material for Building Wraps will make a big difference with the durability of the fabric and the print quality of the graphics that are displayed. Using a printable mesh with anywhere from 35% to 40% air flow will allow normal wind conditions to blow through adequately, which can mean the difference of the material holding up or becoming tattered and torn due to wind whip. Value Vinyls offers RIO 9 oz. Mesh Supreme that will provide beautiful eye catching graphics, yet durable for outdoor use in vigorous weather conditions and has adequate air flow for holding up in normal to turbulent winds. RIO 9 oz. Mesh Supreme has proven itself many times over, displaying beautiful artwork and brand messaging on skyscrapers and other city tower buildings across the country. Known projects up to 11,000 square feet have been done with RIO 9 oz. Mesh Supreme. RIO 9 oz. Mesh Supreme has superior digital printability using solvent, UV or Latex Inks and is available with a film liner for large format printers that require a backing. RIO 9 oz. comes in several roll widths including a 196” width to accommodate for large building surface areas with fewer weld seams. So if you are currently printing Building Wraps or you have a grand format printer and are possibly looking to start, Value Vinyls is your trusted source!
