The Top Four Advantages of Graphic Overlays

When it comes to graphic overlays, Fascia Graphics are experts.

Considerable time and resources are spent ensuring that every graphic overlay that leaves our production facility is perfectly suited for the environment that it is to be placed in.

The use of graphic overlays on your products can provide numerous benefits to your finished product.

Whether you need a overlay for an outdoor or indoor product; in a cold or hot and humid environment, graphic overlays can be specially adapted to ensure that not only do they endure the environmental conditions they are to be placed in, but that they also retain their visual integrity.

Here are the top four advantages of graphic overlays:

1.   Easy to clean

Graphic overlays can be produced using specialist anti-microbial materials that can inhibit bacterial growth, also by using chemical resistant films, harsh cleaning chemicals can be applied, without damaging the visuals of the overlay.

 

2.   Customizable

Materials can be used that are tailored for the environment required.
