Sign & Graphics


Looking for a durable, weather-resistant material to produce eye-catching graphics, advertising or POP marketing? All signs point to plastics.

Environmental and Safety

Considering the total carbon footprint, including costs of raw materials, manufacture, transport, fabricate, install, maintain, plastics compare favorably with more traditional materials. Also, plastics are safer to handle and install. When you consider that most plastics are readily recyclable, they can become the most environmentally responsible and safest choice for many demanding sign & graphics applications.
