Printing wedding decorations

I am absolutely addicted to Pinterest, and I love the look of the weddings I see on there. I am getting married in the summer, and I am getting some beautiful custom posters printed up for our reception with phrases and pictures that mean a lot to us. I wanted to make sure that the posters were a good quality because I want to frame some to use in our home afterwards. The local printer has done a great job, and I am so excited about our wedding. This blog has some tips on getting beautiful wedding decorations printed at a local printer.

Using a digitally printed sign for your restaurant or cafe

Perry Byrd

Restaurants and cafes often have outdoor signs that help to attract customers and bring in passing traffic. Traditionally these signs were made from vinyl lettering, but there is a growing move towards using digital printing. Here are some of the reasons more restaurant owners are choosing digital printing

Flexibility over design

As digital printing is created from a high-quality photo or pdf file it easier to outsource the design to graphic artists. This can give business owners more flexibility over the style of their sign and can often result in a quick and less expensive design process. A growing number of online sites allow you to place graphic design jobs for tender from graphic design artists around the world, so using digital signage opens up a wider range of graphic design artists to create a memorable and eye-catching design. 

Photographic quality designs

Digital printing can produce rich, photo style graphics on signage which can be a great way to showcase your cuisine or even to include pictures of your friendly design. Accurate and detailed graphics can help to draw in customers and show them what is on offer inside the restaurant. Make sure the pictures are accurate though as customers might be upset if they expect perfectly presented haute cuisine and what they actually receive is home-style stew in a rustic setting. It can be a good idea to include a comment that the food shown is indicative and may not be exactly what is offered each night.

Long life coatings

Traditionally vinyl signs were preferred in outdoor applications as they lasted longer than digital inks. However, there have been a growing number of clear coatings that can be placed over the sign to stop sun damage and weathering. This can stop fading and other signs of aging to help you sign look the way that it was designed for as long as possible. When you are ordering your sign it can be worth showing the sign printer the spot that you will be placing it so that they can work out which coating might be most suited to your job. 

If you are looking to get a new sign for your restaurant or cafe, why not chat to your local sign printing store to see if digital printing might be an option for you. It can a great idea to bring some indications with you of the size and location of the proposed sign.
