Frequently Asked Questions

What material can GIC print on?

The variety of printers we have allow us to create Graphic Image (GIC) prints on nearly any material you can imagine: carpet, vinyl, mesh, vehicles, wood, metal, paper, glass, acrylic, fabric, and much more!

We offer many banner options to suit your needs. We frequently print on Gloss Scrim (most common), Matte Scrim, Mesh Banner, and Super-Smooth Banner. We also offer different thicknesses depending on the material offerings and your project specs. We can print double-sided on most offerings and even offer welding, cutting, and grommets as finishing options.

To accompany your printed banners, ask us about banner hardware like: retractable banner stands, pole banner kits, and other mounting options.

Whether your project requires outdoor or indoor applications, temporary or long-term, we have the signage solution for you. We offer printing and finishing capabilities on many substrates. Commonly used substrates include materials such as Foam Core, PVC boards, Ultra Board (Gator Board), Alumaboard (aluminum composite), eco-friendly Falcon Board, and even Wood Composites.

We produce exceptional rigid substrate printing that will satisfy your project specs. We have the capabilities to print both White and Clear on almost any flat surface.

Our Vinyl options will satisfy almost any application need. Ultimately, there are two different types of vinyl: colored, non-printable vinyl that is cut to the design intended on our Graphtech vinyl cutter (wide color variety); or the printable vinyl that is printed on and can be applied to almost any surface and can be cut to whatever size or contour-cut you desire. Another item that falls into the vinyl category is our “frosted glass” vinyl that is used for corporate office windows or doors. It serves as a unique, high-end visual addition to any window or glass door. Designs can be cut from this material to achieve the design you would like.

Regardless of your vinyl application, we’ve got you covered…or wrapped, whichever your project requires.
