Digital technology is already revolutionising signmaking by offering speed, flexibility and quality of print that can't be matched by traditional methods. 3M has been at the forefront of pioneering this technology in collaboration with major printer manufacturer Durst. Signs conform to all requirements of the TSRGD and can be produced in less steps with less waste than traditional production methods.
All of 3M's micro-prismatic sheeting products are suitable for digital printing, using our specially developed inks. It is possible to print large areas of solid colour, and transparent colours of very specific hues that are permanent in all weathers. Digital printing permits speed, ease-of-use and print-on-demand with the option of nesting signs to eliminate waste, and opens up new opportunities for signmakers to offer innovative and one-off designs more easily.
