Why 3M Certified … and why do I care?

3M Certified Graphics Installation Company

3M Certified Graphics Installation Company… has a nice ring to it but what exactly is it?  Is being 3M Certified just another bogus “title” that anyone with a printer and some vinyl can buy?  Is it just a graphic with the 3M name on it?  What exactly does this have to do with you and why should you care?  It just so happens, I have some answers for you.

First and foremost, 3M is a multi-billion dollar international company with products ranging all over the board.  In the sign & graphics game, 3M is the industry leader in vinyl films, wrap materials, graphic films, laminates etc.  While there are plenty of other material suppliers out there, 3M is generally regarded as the Cadillac of materials.  Incredible quality, ground breaking Research and Development and the best reputation means everyone else is simply playing catchup.

It stands to reason that when you have a reputation like 3M it is in your best interest to make sure your products are being used and installed in the best manner possible.  Even a wrap printed on the best 3M film can give the company a bad name if it is installed poorly with bad results.  What you need is a group of experienced, qualified and thoroughly tested installation experts… a 3M Certified Graphics Installation Company.  To even be considered, 3M requires 3 years minimum experience, validated business practices, confirmed liability and insurances as well as an extensive and rigorous two days of hands-on testing & judging.  To say that a 3M Certification has to be earned is an understatement.

So, what do you get with your 3M Certified Installer?  You get peace of mind knowing your wrap was done properly with the best results possible.  You know you get the best warranty in the world and the knowledge that your investment in graphics will last.  In short, you get unparalleled value that you can count on.  No matter what your graphics project is or where it needs to be installed you can call Pro Sign and Graphics to help.

Echo 24 Gets A Custom LED Sign

Pro Sign and Graphics creates a custom illuminated sign

Echo 24 Custom LED illuminated sign

When a client comes to us asking for something new, something unusual, something bright & eye catching… we deliver.  After the initial consultation we determined that a standard electric sign would not fit the bill for Echo 24.  Their edgy logo and tech based company needed something with a creative pop.  They needed a unique concept that would really attract the attention of anyone driving by, night or day.  The end result of our design concept is a custom made edge lit acrylic face with LED lights.  The face was custom routed from the back to create  edges around the logo which give the light something to bounce off of.  This technique combined with a front layer of high performance vinyl graphics produces a highly visible logo during the day as well as a brilliant green glowing effect at night.
