Cold Weather Frames

Winter weather has arrived! It’s time for cold weather frames.

Are you frustrated with basic yard sign frames that won’t go in the frozen ground for your winter open house? Does your “Home for Sale” signage bend and break in the cold weather months? Shure Signs, powered by Repros, has a variety of solutions that will save you time, money, and yes … frustration.

Heavy-duty step stakes are more durable than a basic stake. The addition of 1/4” gage galvanized wire base pierces the cold ground much easier and holds rigid while stepping your sign into the ground.

Fold over step frames are the deluxe solution for professional looking yard signage. These high-quality step frames are made with 3/8” round metal rod stands with a convenient handle that is powder coated black. This stake is so solid, it can pierce hard or frozen ground where other frames cannot.

Tent frames offer a professional look and the flexibility to display on a sidewalk, lawn, or any flat surface. Constructed from 3/8” round rod stock, it folds flat for easy transport and storage. The gloss laminated panel is positioned to swing freely and draw additional attention to your home.

High-quality yard signs are an extension of your brand statement to the community. Don’t let cold weather and hard ground prevent you from making a professional appearance.

How to Find the Right Vehicle Wrap Installer

Do you have a fleet of vehicles that spend a lot of time on the road? Deliver your branding message when you deliver your product. According to the American Trucking Association, the average delivery truck makes 16 million visual impressions in a single year!  By applying your company identity and message to your fleet of vehicles, you are creating awareness every time your trucks hit the streets.  This adds up to a cost-effective way to advertise your business. But beware! Wrapping a vehicle is a process that requires precision and experience, and one mistake can ruin the entire installation. Repros has experienced installers, a designated space for vehicle wrap installation, and uses high quality products and installation equipment that will put you on the road to greater visibility and success.

ExperienceThe advantage of an experienced vehicle wrap installer significantly outweighs discounted prices offered by a less-experienced company. Our installers have extensive experience restyling a wide range of vehicles including, trucks, trailers, vans and autos.

EnvironmentThe facility where an installation takes place must be clean and climate-controlled. A clean shop will help avoid debris contaminating a wrap and prevent larger particles from creating tears in the film. According to the installation experts at 3M, the temperature of the environment should be between 55 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit for installation. When it’s too hot, vinyl wrap becomes sticky and stretchy. In the cold, vinyl wrap becomes brittle and hard to stretch. Repros’ vehicle wrap installation space is clean and well-lit, with A/C for summer installations. The facility fits a 53’ semi-trailer through a 14’ door. We are also able to work on multiple vehicles at the same time.

Equipment and materialsRepros produces vehicle wrap graphics for any size truck and any size fleet. Affordable and durable, we use quality Avery, Arlon and 3M products. Short-term transit vinyl, window perf and cut vinyl are also available.

More than a mobile billboard – When your vehicle is at your customer’s location delivering your products and services, it tells prospective customers that their neighbor trusts you.  And, when it’s back at your shop, it provides additional, large signage for vehicles passing by.

Let us turn your vehicle into a moving billboard with vehicle and fleet graphics from Repros Color.

Is Your ADA Signage Accessible? Why It Matters.

Making your building accessible to people with disabilities using ADA compliant signage is the right thing to do, and it’s the law.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law in 1990. It prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities including their access to all places that are open to the public. A wide variety of ADA compliant signage is required to adhere to the ADA standards. Non-compliance to the rules set forth in the ADA can result in costly legal ramifications for the property or business owner. Epic Signs not only understands the federal laws, but also follows state and local codes that supplement the ADA and offers economical solutions to your ADA challenges.

ADA signage is required to present the same information to all people regardless of their physical abilities. ADA signs are specially designed to be posted in public buildings to accommodate individuals with disabilities so they can comfortably navigate what might otherwise be barriers to accessibility. There are several important questions to help you identify the signs your business will need to comply with
ADA signage regulations.

First, making your location accessible, you must consider ADA parking and egress signage.

ADA_Exit_Accessible_Braille_Sign.jpg

Also, designated safe location entrances and exits must have the appropriate ADA compliant signs in the case of an emergency. This will ensure the protection of individuals who may need special accommodations, such as people in wheelchairs or the sight impaired.

According to the laws that govern ADA compliance, signs that identify a room or public space, such as restrooms, have strict requirements for size, placement, color, finish, braille features, symbols, font, letter spacing, and capitalization.

We can custom design an ADA compliant signage checklist to ensure the compliance of your building. At the core of our offering is our standard substrates that integrate printing with tactile lettering and braille.

In order to avoid costly mistakes for non-compliance and for more information, contact our ADA design professionals at Epic Signs & Graphics to discuss your ADA signage needs or to schedule a consultation.

Antimicrobial Decals Add Safety To Your Space During COVID-19 Pandemic

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, surface cleaning of high-touch areas was not high on the list of concerns for most businesses. Today, it’s one of the foremost operational priorities. When you start analyzing the numerous surfaces that employees, customers and visitors touch each day, the task of keeping the workplace clean becomes overwhelming. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the impact contagious illnesses not only have on the spread of disease, but also the impact on the cost of doing business including costs associated with the number of employee sick days. Finding the appropriate graphics, signs, decals and stickers to convey safety messaging during COVID is a key component to keeping your business environment safe and your workforce healthy and productive, and will also provide visible reassurance to employees, customers and visitors.

Antimicrobial Laminates

There are a wide range of considerations when developing environmental safety measures in the workplace, such as identifying high-touch surfaces, the selection of proper cleaning agents, ensuring the use of masks in interior spaces, and complying with the recommended CDC guidelines. Another highly effective tool to add to your disease-control protocol is the use of antimicrobial COVID decals on high touch surfaces. It won’t eliminate the need for regular cleanings, but is proven to be effective in suppressing the growth of bacteria and fungi on the laminate surfaces.

Hospitals know this and have been using antimicrobial products for years. The medical community requires wall coverings, fabrics, and other surfaces to contain antimicrobial properties to reduce exposure to bacteria and fungi. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released its updated (Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States) indicating that antibiotic-resistant bacteria and fungi cause more than 2.8 million infections and 35,000 deaths in the US each year.

Posters, decals or window graphics

Repros has launched a new product line designed to apply special, antimicrobial layers to informative, COVID-19 decals to make common surfaces safer, reducing touch points to definable areas for easier, more frequent cleaning. Antimicrobial decals can be applied to push open doors, order counters, credit card machine areas, door handles, and many other common touch points.

Covid Decals R2

The (PermaGard Shield*) over-laminating film PGS128 is a high-performance pressure sensitive adhesive over laminating film engineered to inhibit growth of microbes and protect against abrasion, moisture and fading. PermaGard Shield consists of a 3.2 mil Matte clear vinyl film coated on one side with a clear pressure sensitive permanent adhesive and 1.2 mil clear PET liner.

Shield signage decals have been tested and is durable for 180 washes using window cleaner, disinfectant and bleach disinfectant. Antimicrobial decals have been tested against (CDC cleaning guidelines) and effectively reduced contaminants. The durability is 2 years outdoors. Remember to read directions on your cleaning agent to ensure that you are using the proper solution to kill viruses on these surfaces.

An antimicrobial solution, when combined with social distancing decals, mask order stickers and CDC educational prints are best practices for a safer environment. Click here for our COVID-19 order sheet or call today to discuss solutions using antimicrobial decals. Custom messaging and art is available.
