Whether you manage in-plant print production or a commercial print shop, tackling wide-format applied graphics can be daunting, especially if you need to produce several large-scale signage or other vinyl-based orders in quick succession.
Technique and experience are essential, but your choice in print materials and equipment also has a significant impact on how your final products turn out—and how long they last in public-facing displays.
This article showcases one of our team's top picks for applied graphics: Escape Vinyl. Keep reading to learn more about Escape's vinyl application, benefits, and role in your print shop's long-term strategy.
What is Escape Self Adhesive Air Egress Vinyl?
As the name indicates, Escape from UGraphics is a wide-format digital self-adhesive print media with air release channels in its adhesive. The air release, or "egress" feature, pushes air out from between the vinyl and application surface to ensure a bubble-free, wrinkle-resistant final product.
Escape vinyl is affordable and versatile, making it ideal for general graphics and signs, including large-scale signage, stickers, decals, labels, and graphic boards.
Beyond its error-resistant vinyl application process and adhesive formula, Escape vinyl is durable and has an expected outdoor durability of two to three years. From trade show displays to point-of-purchase advertising in retail stores, Escape makes it feasible for print shops to manage sign-making in-house.
Benefits of Escape Vinyl Application
Ease of Use
Unlike some vinyl media that requires decades of experience or complex installation processes, Escape is straightforward to use and easy to apply on multiple surfaces. Escape vinyl is a go-to for foam board signs and other large-scale surfaces thanks to its straightforward application process. The unique air egress adhesive helps signmakers with all levels of experience achieve bubble-free application every time.
Quality and Durability
You might feel like you have to sacrifice price to achieve the right level of quality in your print shop vinyl and other media. However, Escape can bring the best of both worlds to your operations, with a financially friendly price tag and quality standard that gives industry-leading media vendors a run for their money. Escape is exceptionally well-constructed and offers signmakers a gray-back adhesive that most competitor products don't include. This unique backing includes a UV clear coat to help prevent sun fading and increase damage resistance over time.
Escape vinyl's affordable pricing, high-quality finishes, and easy application make it the perfect standard vinyl for your print shop.
Use it to help customers create high-impact messaging and marketing materials, like custom signage for advertising, event displays, and general media. Its virtually error-free application also works well for floor and wall vinyl.
Paired with UBEO's print-and-cut technology and HP latex equipment, Escape empowers print shops to create decals of any shape and size for internal and external vinyl applications.
