Our modular aluminum framing system offers the highest quality solution for Branded Backdrops. Rock solid modular framing is quickly covered in a Velcroed blackout material which creates the base layer. The seamless printed graphic is then placed around the blackout material creating a taut and much more aesthetically pleasing banner than older traditional foam board step & repeats that have visible seams every few feet.
Dye-sublimation printing is a digital printing technology using full color artwork that works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates. Also referred to as digital sublimation, the process is commonly used for decorating apparel, signs and banners.
Traditionally, dye sub has been known for its rich, vivid colors; high-resolution, photorealistic reproduction capabilities, and extreme durability. Using sublimation of dyes is a different process to printing with inks on either other digital or analogue presses. The process sublimates the dye and permanently bonds inside the fibers of the textile. This gives a high-resolution, permanent coloration that is long lasting, and will not peel, crack or fade over time.
