EXCO International, LLC uses cut vinyl on glass
EXCO is a systems integrations company. They use technology in the form of cameras, controllers and electronics to provide solutions for industrial off highway applications. Examples are found in Vacuum truck (sewage removal), Concrete (pumping & blasting), Cranes & Lifts, Transport trailers, Railcar movers, Zoo Habitats, Robots, Pavers, Compactors, Harvesters and Mining. These sorts of customers are in the field, and rarely come to the office.
So why would Exco need a cut vinyl sign? To run EXCO deliveries need to be made, employees need to identify with the location, others want to know who is there. It marks a place. It is a simple, but necessary step and Carlos Acosta, the owner of EXCO asks Signs for San Diego to reproduce EXCO’s logo for the door.
We took the data file and manipulated it into a vector file. That is a file that electronically specifies the shape of the logo. Vector files do not depend on size and are scalable from small to large without loosing resolution. It is a mathematical set of instructions for lines and shapes.
At Signs for San Diego we carry a range of rolls of vinyl in colors. This is important because many small jobs do not require a lot of vinyl, but need a specific color. It turns out we had the correct colors. This means we could meet the needs quickly and economically. See what we can do for you!
Using the vector files, we used a plotter with a very small blade. The blade drags through the layer of vinyl using the computer generated path from the vector files. We cut out the shape of the logo, removing the unneeded vinyl leaving only the needed parts. We use a transfer tape to hold the shape of the logo and install this on the glass on the door.
The process is simple enough, it is quick and affordable. Do you need a logo, your hours, web site of phone number on your window or door? Give us a call!!
