What kind of products do sign shops make?
Sign shops can be expected to produce a variety of different signage such as digitally printed graphics for a wide range of indoor and outdoor uses in almost any industry that you could imagine, post and panel signage that comes in a range of styles to target businesses from realtors to construction workers, banners that come in a variety of shapes, styles and sizes, vehicle wraps and graphics that gives business owners a new marketing mechanism from cars to boats and even to helicopters, in addition to textile and fabric print signs that bring versatile branding solutions.
A basic sign shop needs at least a sign plotter and a good software that allows for the graphic design element of the signage. Each client will expect something different from a sign shop which is why it is important that a sign shop has a software that will be able to accomodate the needs of an infinite amount of possible clients.
What level of VinylMaster is for Sign Shops?
VinylMaster PRO is the lowest level required to perform adequately in the sign shop industry as it is the level created to target professional use, especially for sign shops. VinylMaster PRO is the level that includes the minimum amount of tools and features required to produce effective and creative signage with an advanced design centre that allows for the creativity to flow. The collection of included fonts, clipart, effects and other tools separates VinylMaster PRO from CUT and LTR to ensure you won't be limited in your design potential and means that you will successfully meet the expectations of your future clients. However, if your business wishes to advertise the capacity for large-format signage, you will need VinylMaster XPT as this is the only level that includes a fully-featured RIP which allows you to print to a large format printer which will further enhance the potential profits for your sign business as you will likely encounter clients that require large format signage.
