Advanced Signs and Graphics, Lancaster, Pa., has found that LexJet Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl is far more versatile than the name implies. Production Manager Bill Felter says the company uses Simple Flo for a lot of different applications beyond vehicles, particularly larger display boards that can be difficult and awkward to apply vinyl to.
“It goes down so nice and you’re able to work out any bubbles or air pockets, especially for large pieces where we’re mounting to wood, PVC or any other material. We don’t have a lot of space, so working on big projects can be a challenge and hinder the application process. Simple Flo makes it so much easier,” says Felter. “It’s got that honeycomb backing and if you have any air pockets it’s very easy to get them out. Once it’s down, and if you have to reposition it a bit, you can pull it up easily and put it back down. The way that it handles and the way it mounts to substrates saves us a ton of time, plus it cuts down on material waste. Over the course of a couple of months it probably saves me a few hundred dollars in spoilage.”
Felter says that Simple Flo is less expensive than similar vinyl products, making it easier to justify its use on projects he might have used an intermediate vinyl on in the past. “I’ve been using it as our everyday vinyl for a lot of different things, like simple post-and-panel signs, real estate signs mounted on half-inch board, display boards where we wrap the vinyl around the edges and even a large 12 ft. x 4 ft. Sign Foam display piece,” adds Felter. “The print quality is as good as any vinyl I’ve printed on; it prints colors that are just as vibrant as a higher-end vinyl.”
