DISCOVERING YOUR SUBSTRATE: DIABOND

UNDERSTANDING AND DIFFERENTIATING DIABOND:   Diabond; it rolls off the tongue nicely, but what exactly is it?  You know its a substrate, and that it has something to do with aluminum, but what about diabond sets it apart from the aluminum you’re familiar with?  Why would anyone choose diabond over aluminum, or vice-versa?   In our last post we…

DISCOVERING YOUR SUBSTRATE: CREZONE

    Whenever I hear the word crezone I picture a fat calzone and get hungry, which is weird I know, because though crezone may sound like something you’d find on a pizza menue, you’d be more likely finding a pizza menue on crezone.  A wooden-based sign substrate, crezone may be an old-timer, but it can still walk the…

DISCOVERING YOUR SUBSTRATE: PVC SIGNAGE

Often, a lightweight, simple, and inexpensive yet eye-pleasing substrate is required to direct and advertise information inside a business or organization, and such a purpose can be easily and professionally accomplished through the use of Polyvinyl Chloride, the substrate otherwise known as Styrene.  With its smooth, satiny finish, styrene is coroplast gone formal.  Solid, yet thin and flexible,…

DON’T REMIND ME!

I’m not a vegetarian and I’m not a PETA fenatic, but I love animals.  I love people and personality too.  And I love food.  I love to eat food.  I love to eat food but not food that has personality, or food that constantly reminds me it was once alive and breathing… and CUTE, damn it.  …

DISCOVERING YOUR SUBSTRATE: ALUMINUM

Many people associate aluminum substrate with street signs, and while it is true that street signs are aluminum, this substrate has far-reaching potential and must be recognized as a choice substrate for anything from the mundane to the highly professional.  Versatile as well as durable, choosing aluminum signage makes a purchaser the Master, allowing creativity…

DISCOVERING YOUR SUBSTRATE

  If you’re about to invest in a sign, big or small, make sure your first questions aren’t about pricing options, but about which materials are available to you, and which will best suit your needs.  It’s important not to walk into a shop with a budget that’s incapable of providing you with a quality…

Big changes at Speedpro!

As many of our customers know we have been looking for a replacement for our very talented Production Manager Andrea since January. Andrea had some opportunities (like going to Africa to help children there) that she just could not pass up. And lets be honest Andrea is a hard act to follow. We were determined…

THE WHEELS ON THE BUS GO ROUND & ROUND…

Them kids had it right all along.  The wheels on the bus do go ’round and ’round,  and they go all through the town.  Holy Smokes, but the eyes they now see!   City buses pass walking people, driving people, bored-in-the-office people, waiting outside in line people, and throughout the entire day, they pick people up.  It’s…

WINDOW PERFORATED GRAPHICS

See-Through Vinyl Graphics are graphics printed on perforated vinyl (vinyl that has been entirely punched with pinholes).  Odd isn’t it, you’d think those holes would interfere with advertising wouldn’t you?  That’s where you’d be wrong.   STVG’s; Certainly tricky, certainly useful.   Most commonly used to cover vehicle windows so drivers can advertise as well as drive…

THE FIVE W’S OF TRADE SHOWS

    Who can take part in Trade Shows?  Every business can and should participate in at least one Expo a year, but not just any Expo.  Making sure Trade Shows are thoroughly researched will ensure beneficial results.  For example, in a Wedding Show, appropriate showcasing trades might be travel agencies, flower shops, bakeries, and…
