Having an ideal workflow is the key to any successful business venture related to signage or manufacturing in general. There are a few key components needed to successfully produce Novacryl photopolymer signage in-house. We’ve created a great infographic to demonstrate a typical workflow environment.
How Photopolymer Signs Are Processed
- Artwork is created using our WorkFlow Manager design and Braille translation software
- Film used to expose the photopolymer is generated with the InkStar Film Solution which prints high density negatives and positives
- Processing the actual Novacryl® photopolymer is done with the All-In-One Orbital X Photopolymer Processor
- Once processed the photopolymer gets cut with either a CNC router or with the AccuCutter Finishing Shear
- Applying color to the photopolymer sign panel is done by spraying Matthews Acrylic Polyurethane Paint to either the surface or second surface of the Novacryl® sign panel
- Tipping the raised characters are done with the Kobo TC-851 Hot Stamp unit
- The last step is assembly of all the sign components, packaging and shipping
It’s just that easy – and we’ve done the math. Our signage process is profitable after just 1200 signs.
