Digital Graphics For Creating Design Enhancement
The art of sign making has gone through many phases in an evolutionary process that has culminated in the state of the industry today. In the early days, hand lettering with a brush and a can of paint was all the sign maker had or needed to work with. Then with the introduction of the personal computer and the use of vinyl graphics, the sign industry was changed dramatically.
Now, over the last 15 years another significant change has taken place. Digital graphics have become more and more visible in the designs that sign makers use on signs and vehicles. Large format digital printers like the one used at Graber Letterin' have greatly expanded the capabilities of the sign maker allowing full size photographs and full renderings to be utilized in sign and vehicle graphic designs.
The limitations of vinyl graphics or actual painting with a brush has pretty much been eliminated with this new technology. Multicolor decals and magnets, photorealistic full color vehicle graphics, and complex and detailed sign designs are now all possible with the advent of the large format digital printer. Designs like those on this page and in our gallery are becoming very commonplace. Check out the graphics below to see how the digital format has been utilized to improve upon the designs.
