When it comes to sign making hardware, there are two crucial components: a computer and a vinyl cutter. A state-of-the-art computer it’s necessary, but it’s recommended to use one with at least a 2.0 GHz processor and 4GB of RAM. The screen resolution must have a minimum of 1152 X 854 and be capable of 16-bit color. There are an immense variety of vinyl cutters on the market today, and the vinyl cutter used depends upon the signs being made.
Once the machines are selected, it’s time to choose the software for designing commercial signs. Software differs depending upon the needs of the company, and what type of product is being manufactured.
The next step in creating decals and signs is to gather the necessary supplies for printing, cutting, and adhering your products. It’s important to choose a quality surface to adhere the vinyl to, and these surfaces are known as substrates. There are two major types of substrates:
Rigid: Rigid substrates should be smooth, flat, and chemically stable. Examples include aluminum sign blanks, windows, and corrugated plastic signs.
Flexible: As the name suggests, these substrates are flexible and pliable. Two common examples are awnings and banners.
You may also need application fluid, and you’ll want to have a squeegee on hand to help you complete your transfer.
