Dye Sub Printing: We can print on fabrics in different ways. The use of multiple heat presses and direct to fabric printers allows us to complete many dye sub fabric printing projects with a great deal of accuracy and efficiently. Dye sublimation transfers the ink into the fabric material, locking it in to create vibrant, long lasting full color images that allow these printed fabric materials to be used several times without the print fading. Dye sublimation printing on fabric also allows you to machine wash your fabric prints in cold water and tumble dry without losing your vibrant, full color graphics.
UV Printing: The ink used in UV printers is cured to the material it is printed on using UV LED lights. This allows for instant drying to the material to lock in colors in a captivating way that is used on a variety of substrates. Instead of the substrate absorb into the paper, the lights dry it into the material which reduces issues such like dotting or smudges. UV printing also gives customers the option of printing their image on non-traditional materials.
MultiCam Digital Cutter: One of the newest additions to Post Up Stand’s technology force is the MultiCam Digital Cutter. This high-efficiency machine is not only improving the speed and accuracy of our production process, but also allows you to have your custom graphics printed on a number of unique, non-traditional substrates. The MultiCam Cutter also allows those materials such as acrylic, wood, magnets and more to be cut into custom shapes to fit unique graphics, decals or logos.
Graphic Design Services: You can take advantage of our talented in-house graphic designers who use the latest version of Adobe Creative Suite to produce attention-grabbing marketing designs for displays of any kind no matter your business or industry.
