File Naming that makes life easy!
Let's assume you are sending us a file that you want executed as door decals, and you want three of them, and they need to fit in a space of 18" by 20".
This would be a great way to name the file:
Primary file name considerations:
Your company name
Project or site
The date you are sending us the file
Number of signs or vehicle make
Size if known
Keyword that will make sense to us and others in your company at later date
File naming secondary considerations:
Avoid special characters or spaces in a file name
Use capitals and underscores instead of periods or spaces or slashes
Use date format: eg: CompanyXYZLogoApr152020
Include a version number (CompanyXYZLogoV3Apr152020)
Elements to consider using in a naming convention are:
Number of items required
Project name or number

Lifetimes depend on location, exposure and treatment.
North facing signs last at least 2 times longer than south facing signs. In ALL cases UV inks are rated for 3 years, un-laminated. This is due to the pigment level being much lower that cut sign vinyl, therefor it will fade much faster. Intermediate vinyls are extruded materials, while high performance vinyls are cast liquid materials, which do noot shrink, due to not being stretched in manufacturing process.
For compound curves a cast material must be used.
We stock a wide variety of materials, with respective life spans. You can choose from one of these categories:
Single use, indoor
1 month - 3 year outdoor
4 year to 6 year outdoor
11 year to 14 year outdoor
18 plus years outdoor
