Why we laminate our Magnetic Signs
Taking pride in our magnetic sign product.
There are lots of online magnetic sign companies in all corners of the world that offer great products, but for some reason or another choose to not laminate their magnetic sign products, thus producing sub-par products. Here are MagneticSignsOntime.com we automatically laminate every single magnetic sign order that is placed and feel we have a far superior product because of it. Besides the fact that we only use high-quality magnetic sheeting, and that we work closely with all our magnetic sign clients, adding lamination to our product only makes them better and more valuable.
As explained in a previous blog, Magnetic Signs: This is How We Do It!, our magnetic signs are digitally printed onto adhesive vinyl and then applied to the face of 100% American-made magnetic sheeting material. The lamination we apply over that magnetic sign print serves as a protectant because we want our magnetic signs to last our customer's a good long time (even if that means we don't hear from our customers for years) thus providing magnetic signs that are still in good working order for years to come. And with that said, this is why we laminate all our magnetic signs...
1. Protects the print against the elements.
Magnetic signs are continually subjected to all sorts of different weather from the hot heat of the sun to the cold of snow and freezing rain. When magnetic signs are not laminated they run the risk of fading quicker because of these circumstances. The lamination acts as a shield and barrier thus preserving the print longer.
2. Helps with print protection.
Along with the elements, that can damage an unprotected magnetic sign print, there is a high risk of damage due to abrasions and scratching. Adding the lamination to the magnetic sign print adds a nice buffer that makes it harder to acquire damage to a magnetic sign through scratches and abrasions that could happen during storage or on the road.
3. Extends the durability of the overall product.
Taking into consider the above bonuses of laminating magnetic signs is the fact that since the magnetic sign print is heavily protected the overall longevity of the product is extended by years. Magnetic signs that are not laminated may last a measly 1 to 2 years, whereas magnetic signs that are laminated, can last for 3 to 5 years (possibly more.)
All of these factors make for a very durable and long lasting first-rate magnetic sign product that our company can stand behind and proudly produce and market without hesitation at competitive prices that our customers can afford and respect.
