Frequently Asked Questions
As your full service signage and graphics partner, we always offer on-site and centre consultations. But if you would like to gain understanding of our signage process prior to contacting Image360 Calgary South for your graphic solutions, we have provided a list of Frequently Asked Questions that will ensure a smooth and effortless decision-making process:
What is the process for determining the best graphic solutions for my needs?
We begin every project with a new customer getting to know their business and goals. Discussing the intention or purpose of the custom graphics, where will they be viewed, how the graphics are placed, etc. This consultation helps us determine the best signage materials, colours and mounting methods in constructing your sign to achieve your desired visual communications outcome.
Custom Sized Signage
Do you make signage and graphics in standard sizes?
At Image360 Calgary South, we can build your custom graphics at any size needed to achieve your desired outcome. There are some standard sizes for basic real estate signs and some regulatory signs, such as parking signs, but the majority of the signage and graphics we produce are designed to fit the needs of the customer and the variables of where the sign will be displayed.
Signage & Graphics Lifetime
How long will a custom sign last?
At Image360 Calgary South, we use a wide variety of materials in the construction of our signage and graphics. We have sign materials that are preferred for short-term applications, as well as materials that will withstand the test of time. For more information about the options available concerning sign life, please contact a trained professional at Image360 Calgary South.
Signage & Branding
How do full-colour graphics help my brand?
Full-colour graphics have the potential to make your business more professional and consistently branded. High resolution and full-colour graphics also increase the customer’s perception of the quality of your businesses’ products and services.
Custom Signage Color Schemes
What colours show up the best on my sign?
The choice of colour is a very important aspect when considering the effectiveness of a particular message for your company’s signage and graphics. Make sure to discuss colour options with a graphics specialist at Image360 Calgary South.
Custom Sign Visibility
How visible will my sign be?
Different fonts and colour combinations can affect distance readability of your sign. Our team of signage professionals are trained to provide tailored and specific recommendations on these options. Our consultants will work with you to understand how the placement of your signage and graphics will affect visibility – providing the ideal signage solution to meet your needs.
Partial vs Full Vehicle Wraps
What’s the difference between a partial vehicle wrap and a full vehicle wrap?
A full vehicle wrap covers every area of exposed paint on the vehicle, while a partial vehicle wrap might only cover a side or a body panel of your car, van or bus.
Computer Screen Color vs Actual Color
Is the colour I see on my monitor or tablet accurate to what I’ll receive?
Because colour is subjective and can be produced by many methods, there may be slight variations in the way colour appears on your signage. Using state-of-the-art technology, we will, in almost all cases, be able to produce the colour you desire.
Laminating a Sign
Do I need laminate on my sign?
In many cases, lamination is not required to produce a durable sign, but can enhance the appearance and will extend the life of most signage and graphics.
