Highlighted Techniques in Our Manufacturing Process:

Direct-to-Substrate UV Printing

This state-of-the-art approach has set a new standard in the industry, allowing for the direct application of imagery and text onto the substrate. It layers ink to achieve ADA-compliant text, graphics, and even braille, offering:

  • Cost efficiencies by eliminating secondary coverings.
  • Enhanced color vibrancy and definition for better visibility.
  • Accelerated production speeds, thanks to a streamlined process.
CO2 Laser Cutting

A time-tested technique, CO2 laser cutting offers precision and versatility, maintaining its status as a go-to for cutting various materials, celebrated for:

  • Producing cleaner, smoother edges for a polished finish.
  • Versatile material cutting capabilities with speed and ease.
  • Material integrity preserved against warping.
Raster™ Braille

For ADA-compliant braille, Raster™ Braille remains a top choice. This method, which involves embedding plastic beads into drilled substrate holes, is not only precise but also requires specific licensing and equipment, ensuring:

  • Compatibility across a range of materials.
  • Guaranteed 100% ADA compliance for all signage.
  • Uniform, aesthetically pleasing braille presentation.
CNC Routing

Automating the cutting process via CNC routing allows for unparalleled accuracy and efficiency, with software-guided operations shearing materials to exact specifications, benefiting from:

  • Significant reductions in material wastage.
  • Minimized risk of production errors, enhancing overall quality.
  • Reduced labor needs, translating to cost savings.
