There are multiple questions you should ask yourself when determining what type of material you may need for your printed graphics.  It’s important to spend time thinking of how you will be using the graphic since the type of material is factored into the cost of the graphic of course.  Here are some questions to ask yourself when choosing the right print material:

    1) Will your graphic or sign be used indoors or outdoors?

    2) How long do you need the graphic to last?  Is it permanent or temporary?

    3) What type of surface will your graphic be applied to? An existing fixture or a new surface such as a rigid sign?

    4) Do you want the graphic to have a smooth surface or to have a texture?

    5) Does it need to be adhesive?

   6) Does it need laminated?
