Our Printing Department features the HP Latex 360 Printer which produces indoor and outdoor prints on a variety of traditional signage substrates—even textiles. And high-quality, durable prints provide scratch resistance comparable to hard-solvent inks. The higher-volume, 64″ HP Latex 360 Printer prints up to 978 ft2/hr and increases application versatility with an ink collector for porous textiles. The printer also features automatic front-to-back registration for printing double-sided banners.

Curved, smooth edges with different heights and details doesn’t scare us or our vacuum former! We are able to produce displays, machine guards and parts, Starbucks lids, and more, up to 4′ x 4′ with this added functionality. Often times we can use your mold or we can create one for you. Once your parts are molded, we use our MultiCam CNC router to cut them to finished sizes. Common materials we form with our PET-G, ABS, Styrene and Kydex.
