The printed fabric used in a Fabric Light Box is as important an element as any other in achieving best possible results from this high-quality display system.
There are many examples in the market of poor quality fabric and printing. These give a poor result when compared to what is possible by instead selecting suitable fabrics and printing methods.
The wrong way
To see how things can go wrong, take a look at this example:
This was installed across multiple sites for a major retailer. The fabric is obviously of insufficient quality, as the LED light sources are clearly visible through it. If the correct fabric was used here, the lighting would instead be dispersed evenly across the fabric, instead of shining through at all those points.
Our way – the right way!
Now have a look at these Fabric Light Boxes we produced:
The light is properly dispersed evenly across the signs, for maximum effectiveness and visual impact.
We achieve this by only using high-quality fabrics and by expertly printing the messages themselves. For example, different fabrics and printing methods are used for lit and non-lit applications. The process is also tailored depending on the colours used. For example, achieving a good quality black colour is a challenge for many printers, but it’s a challenge we overcome each time thanks to our expertise and dedication.
Once the fabric is printed, we sew a silicone strip into its edge, which can then be inserted in a recessed groove in the frame.
The sew line is hidden in the frame recessed groove, providing a sleek finished look. This is a perfect choice when more image and less frame is required . A pull tab is also sewn on, so that it is easy to remove the graphic display from the frame. The size of the graphic is precise so the fabric is taut when installed in the frame.
All fabrics we use are fire retardant.
The care we take to get the fabric right is evidence of our dedication to delivering each client the best display solution possible when they come to us for a Fabric Light Box.
