Setting a Higher Standard with PET Printable Vinyl Media

Have you noticed when you’re out in public walking down the street or taking in a shopping mall how many signs there are just looking at you begging for your attention? Hundreds, even thousands of signs in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles. Some that are permanent, some that light up and then some just hang on a wall or a pole.

The point is; signs are a very big part of our everyday life and for those working in the sign industry, this is a big and demanding commitment.

One specific type of vinyl sign media that I want to focus on today is PET printable vinyl. The acronym, PET stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate. Polyethylene is a polymerized thermoplastic ethylene resin, used to make the vinyl film and Terephthalate is a thermoplastic polyester resin made from ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid, also used to make films or fibers, like what is used for water bottles. Polyethylene terephthalate has high strength, is flexible and resistant to abrasion. The addition of these laminated films makes for an extraordinarily smooth and scrim-less vinyl that works extremely well for print media.
