New Technology Creates Eye Catching Graphics

With recent advances in technology graphics can be dye-sublimated  onto knit polyester fabric which results in vibrant colors and crisp designs for eye catching custom banners.  This fabric graphic is then stretched over the sign’s frame much like a pillowcase is put around a pillow.  These “pillowcase graphics” form a large, smooth surface for the best looking hanging banners and signs possible with the technology available today.
