School Door Signage - Choosing the Best Options

Updated: May 26

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.


Technical:

  • 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.
