What pops into your mind when you hear the term silk screening? T-shirts, most likely. While fabric is one type of material silk screen prints can be applied to, there are many others that can be used in the silk screening process, including wood, ceramic, glass, plastic and metal. Different inks may be used for different materials.
Great for indoor or outdoor placement, this method of sign printing is capable of adding artistic flair and unique design, and can even act as a conversation piece in your home or office. And when you take care of your signs, their brilliant colors and base material can last a long time. With this in mind, here are five reasons to commission silk screen signs in Vermont:
- Decorate your home: Bare rooms and naked shelves can come back to life when decorated with silk screen signs. Add a wooden welcome sign to your front door, for example. An ink-on-glass sign showing simple images or wording might look nice hanging on your wall, and your kitchen area may worthy of displaying inked images on metal shapes. Do you have a man cave, home office or craft room? Don’t forget to decorate these private rooms, especially if you can include a touch of your personality!
- You’re a gardener: If you love to garden, decorating the outside of your home, like the gardens and patio, is a must. Your garden is a private sanctuary, and therefore you get to create a space that shows who you are as a gardener. From materials like metal, plastic or ceramic for areas prone to exposure to the elements to beautiful rustic signs made of natural wood to hang under a canopy or gazebo, have some fun with customizing silk screen signs in Vermont for every spot in the garden.
- Spruce up the office: Large silk screen prints are fantastic additions to most any office waiting area. Commission a silk screen sign to display your company name and logo, create fun metal restroom signs or get motivational phrases printed to hang throughout the office.
- Give them as gifts: An item made of wood is a thoughtful gift that most any crafty friend would enjoy. Wood indicates “rustic and simple,” and a customized silk screen sign is a great way to personalize a gift printed with words or images you know they will love. Here’s a nostalgic idea: take a childhood drawing or doodle of the person you’re giving the gift to and ask a silk screen tech to create a completely unique item.
- Advertise your home-based business: Many small and home-based businesses operate out of residential homes. If your business license and county regulations allow signage, customize a silk screen sign with your business name and logo printed clearly in vibrant ink. Place the sign in a good spot at the front of your house, somewhere that’s easy for drivers and pedestrian passersby to see.
