  • Coroplast Vs. PVC, which is better?

    pvc_vs_coroBeing successful as a business is all about standing out from all the other similar brands out there. Even though technology has grown and many businesses profit through internet sales, bricks and motar businesses are still extremely successful. Therefore, brands should strive to make themselves noticeable, even if it comes down to the nitty gritty.

    A simple and great way to make your brand noticeable is through signage. To attract new customers, outdoor and indoor signs will definitely increase brand exposure. According to Brandongaille.com , it states "35% of people wouldn’t even know your business was at its location unless you have a sign displayed," which shows how much signs can be to your advantage.

    To produce a sign that is eye-catching and unique in content, you got to think about a few things: the graphics (content), the material, and the placement of the sign. Do you know the difference between sign substrates? For event centered signage, the two that come to mind are Coroplast or Sintra (expanded pvc). But which is right for your needs and budget?coroplast_compared_to_pvc

    Sintra (or expanded pvc) is light, very smooth, and prints with a detailed matte finish that is ideal when you want to take your event level up a notch. This material is flexible and works well indoors in frames or outdoors in a-frame stands.

    Coroplast is light, strong, weather resistant, and very economical. It is often referred to as "plastic cardboard" because of it's fluted design much like cardboard. It's great for outdoor use and the flutes can be used in conjunction with inexpensive wire stakes we offer on our webpage than can be stuck in the ground. Ideal for extended temporary uses.

    The material depends completely on preference and purpose. In the photo above, you can see the difference between coroplast and PVC.  Be sure to remember, whatever material you choose, light absorption could damage your sign. Hope this was helpful!

    You can never go wrong with the healthier option. In fact, it's always better to go for the healthier option. Some may disagree, but University of California Riverside sure doesn't! We have always worked together with Riverside's Housing, Dining, and Residential Services with their signage, and lately we've been seeing a great change in their menu. Many times they order menu signs from us, and we can definitely see their efforts to make a healthier menu.

    According to Livestrong.com, Oils provide the body with necessary nutrients to help maintain body functions. The different oils one chooses to intake makes a significant difference to one's health. Our body needs the essential fatty acids that are in unsaturated oils. A few examples of unsaturated oils are vegetable, olive, peanut, canola, soybean and more. UCR has taken the initiative to offer healthy oils in their perspective dining areas. We created signs that let the students know the different healthy oils that they offer. The material of this sign is foam core, which are perfect for indoor displays.
