When it comes to designing and producing the most creative displays, we’re substrate neutral. We have a long track record working with more than 10 distinct types of material with one simple criteria: what works best to achieve the desired look and function and durability.

Featured Materials we work with include:

3M™ Vinyl is a self-adhesive film that offers excellent colour retention and is easy to work with, thanks to its dead stretch properties, as well as its ease of application and removal.

Cardstock/Cardboard refers to any heavy-duty paper, ranging in thickness from a single thick sheet of paper, to complex configurations featuring multiple corrugated and uncorrugated layers.

Gator Board or Gatorfoam is a series of unique, lightweight structural panels consisting of a rigid Polystyrene foam core. The facing laminates have been specially developed to provide an excellent surface for printing and laminating, making it a top choice for signage, props, floats, exhibits and POP displays.

Falconboard® is a rigid paperboard with a unique fluted core that makes it both remarkably lightweight and strong. Its bright white smooth paper finish makes Falconboard an ideal choice for many large-format graphics and displays.

LEXAN™ or Polycarbonate is a high-performance resin that produces lightweight, yet extremely durable, strong and shatter-resistant solid plastic sheets.

Sintra® is a lightweight yet rigid PVC board in a low gloss finish that can withstand outdoor applications.

Canvas delivers a high-end fine-art look – the look of original artwork.

Plexiglass or Acrylic are versatile substrates that offers a range of thicknesses and translucence.

Coroplast® is a corrugated, fluted polypropylene sheet that is both water- and stain-resistant – and economical.

Crezon is a staple of the sign industry. As a specially-treated exterior grade plywood, Crezon typically is typically painted and printed for use in exterior applications including real estate signs and site signage.

Styrene and High-Impact Polystyrene (HIPS) are versatile, rigid substrates that are similar to PVC, but more suited to indoor applications.
