What is Flex Face and when to consider it for a project.

Friday, November 09, 2018

A “Flex Face” (also known as a “skin”) is a tensioned flexible PVC banner substrate that is stretched across a frame system like a drum is stretched. Often with minimal framing and excellent illumination. 

When to consider flex face: 
If you have a project that has any 4 of the following 7 circumstances, flex face could be the right choice for your project.

  • Short turnaround time. Fast to produce for quicker turnaround time. 

  • Tricky installation. Flex face is lightweight so there is more flexibility on locations and install crew and equipment which lowers installation costs. 

  • Future changeability. Easier to print a new graphics and install on site than acrylic or aluminum would be.

  • Illumination. The entire face illuminates nicely for nighttime visibility.

  • Quality look for the budget. Often looks no different than a heavier, more highly engineered ($$) sign. But also looks much nicer than an acrylic faces

  • Gotta go big. Can go bigger with PVC printing than you can with acrylic or composite materials.

  • Warranty is important. Depending on the chosen substrate the warranty can be 6+ years for this material. In some cases, depending on the graphic treatment, the warranty can be better than paint. 


So, the next time you have a sign project, let a flex face sign be part of the conversation.
