printed fascia sign

Hi,

Personally I don't like them but have been asked to do a fascia which needs do be done as a print. Not done a printed one before - is there anything to look out for?

Am a bit worried about the join to be honest, plus fading as south facing. Will get laminated.

Any input appreciated.

Ta.

laminate definately, but avoid yellow if you can, it will be the first colour to fade :( May only be our environment here, but yellow is white in about a year here unlaminated.

George,

havent measured but from memory probably about 15ft wide (think that the 1070 x 170 pixel image supplied will have a bit of a struggle.......)

Shane - ta for that - it is mainly blue so hopefully wont fade so quick.

George,

yes - will be onto dibond or foam - not sure yet. Guess am over paranoid of the joins not being spot on as will show with the continual print...

will bear your optimism and faith in mind...

thanks

Marts, you cant do a sail track banner? That would fix the join concern.

Martin,

I wouldn't be worried about the join at all......ignore it....would prefer di-bond [or similar] rather than foam...The new Thomas Cooks, Thorntons etc are all digital onto aluminium and look great.

:D
