The Lamont team was happy to consult with Blackheath & Thornburgh College in Charters Towers to help ensure their perspex door signage was manufactured to the best standards possible.
Reverse printing on perspex can be a highly technical project, but is one that as trade printers we do on a regular basis.
Perspex is cut to exact size on our Kongsberg Cutting Table. This uses double cut technology to deliver a very nice, clean edge
The reverse side of the sign is then printed on the HP Latex R1000 . (See the video: With the large number of passes, you can see the sign come to life with each additional layer of the right ink for this job.)
This layer is overprinted to ensure that the images and edges look perfect, with ink all the way to the edges.
Once this is complete, a layer of perfect white is printed over the images. It is this layer that makes the signage "pop". This white ink is superb quality from HP, comes with a HP Guarantee, and is very resistant to ultra violet (UV) damage.
Then, to further ensure longevity and to protect the signs, we spray a coat of clear acrylic as the final reverse coat. This helps prevent damage on installation.
