Hye all, first new to this place so appreciate any help, second looking for some guidance and help from people who know what they are doing. We have been asked to put up new graphics on two 15’x48’ prismaflex tri-vision boards for a company that owns them. We have a great guy who worked for Lamar for many, many years who knows the ins and out of fixing them, working with them but what we need help on is the installation of the graphics, the best way to do them, and the best materials to use.
The boards are probably about 5-8 years old and they are using pressure sensitive vinyl. The guy who is fixing these boards and pulling them down for us, said that normally they pull down the boards using a crane and a box and then we would put the graphics on at our shop. We do graphics all day long but haven’t done this before and with this new client, we really want to make sure we do it right and help them look good because we could come off with more work because of this.
From you guys who have done this before, is there a best way to make sure this is all done right and any recommendations on the type of vinyl being used, any installation tips/tricks you can pass along? Do you number the boards as they are coming off the face to make sure they go back up…I believe there are 139 boards if I remember correctly?
We were told to print the vinyl in 4’ sections and then apply them to the boards and then just slit them once on them…is this correct, is there a better way to do this?
Again, just want to come off helping out this new customer look good so we can keep working with them. Appreciate any feedback.
