The Graphics Factory can produce lettering and graphics to be installed at your location. Store windows are a popular spot for a business name, a list of services and business hours. Installation is available, as are peel-and-stick self apply decals.

Vehicles can have vinyl lettering applied directly to promote your business. Cars, vans and trucks can be lettered with your business logo/name and services list. For boats, The Graphics Factory can supply BC numbers and of course boat names.

If you want temporary vehicle signage, a magnetic sign is the perfect solution. Quickly place or remove a magnetic sign on your vehicle to promote your business, or drive around incognito.

For more visibility, we have a number of options in A-Board signs, also known as sandwich signs. These are portable signs that can be placed outside your business location or at an intersection. Organizations can use these A-Boards to promote upcoming events and club registrations.

Specialty Cut Decals & Labels

At the The Graphics Factory, we can print and cut almost any design. Decals & stickers are printed on all-weather vinyl, and can be laminated for an extra layer of durability and UV protection.

Continuous numbering is also available on some of these products.

  • Contour Cut Decals
  • Custom Stickers
  • Shipping Labels
  • Numbered Passes
  • Binder Stickers
  • Promotional Decals
  • Bumper Stickers
  • Cut Logo Stickers

Engraved Signs, Nameplates & Stencils

The Graphics Factory can produce engraved signs and nameplates in a broad range of colours. Engraved signs can be mounted in tracks; with screws; with double-sided tape; or be built so they are self-supporting stands, such as 2-sided name plates.

Engraved & full colour nametags are also available to order, with either a pin or magnetic attachment. In addition to standard colours, silver flake, brushed aluminum, brushed gold, and European gold materials are also available.

If you need to paint lettering directly on the surface of material not suitable for signage or vinyl lettering, stencils are also available.

Rough-finish wood, drum barrels and other surfaces in industrial areas may be better signed with custom stencils. Stencil materials include plastic, mylar and brass; Rollers, ink pads and ink for stencils are also available.

Sign Materials

Coroplast, our most popular sign material, is a corrugated sheet of plastic, similar in look to cardboard, and available in multiple colours. Lightweight and versatile, coroplast is suitable for signs being used inside, and is easily weatherproof to be used outside in the shorter term. Most real estate signs are produced on coro.

For a smoother, non-corrugated finish, we also offer sintra and styrene, both solid-core plastics.

Our banner material is a heavy gauge, plasticized canvas. It is readily available in 22”, 28” and 34” widths on a roll, with other sizes also available to order. Our banners have grommets at each corner, and at regular intervals along the top and bottom edges.
