If you’re looking for large format signage for your business, you should consider flex face signage. Since it’s easily visible from a distance, it can help you draw people’s attention even at night. According to FedEx, almost 76% of consumers said they had entered a business or store they had never visited before simply because of its signs. Also, nearly 67% of the surveyed consumers said they had purchased a product or service because a sign grabbed their attention.

Flex face signs are typically found in airports, bus stations, train stations, shop fronts, retail parks, petrol forecourts, and sports stadiums. So, whether you are a small business or a large enterprise, you should consider getting flex face signage to draw prospects and increase your sales.

All You Need to Know About Flex Face Signs

The flex face is the key feature of the flex face signage system. It is a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) banner (also known as skin as it resembles the skin of a drum). Therefore, if you’ve only used rigid signs so far, you must consider getting a flex face sign for your business; they’re safer and more scalable.

Unlike acrylic or composite panels, PVC flex face signs allow you to print on a much larger scale. Moreover, you can combine multiple flex face signs to create large ones for your business. So, you can make flex face signs of any size based on your requirements.

A typical PVC skin on the market is 4980mm wide and 50m long. Therefore, if you want larger skins, you can weld multiple PVC skins together. The welded portion may be visible if someone’s standing right in front of the sign; however, on moving back, the welded portion becomes less noticeable.

Most flex face signs comprise a two-part tension clip attached to the edge of the PVC skin. The main body of the sign is then fixed to a frame and the flexible PVC skin can lift separately. The tension clips on the edge of the flex face signs are then inserted into channels on the frame. As the tension clips slide down the channel, they create tension on the PVC skin and provide you with eye-catching signage. So, whether you are installing illuminated or non-illuminated face flex signs, you can rest assured that they will look seamless and stunning.

Types of Flex Face Signs on the Market

There are two types of flex face signs on the market:

  • Illuminated Flex Face Signs

These are also known as “flex face lightboxes.” They come with more depth to make space for the installation of illumination. PVC skins light up beautifully to create attractive flex face signs. Even though illuminated flex face signs are typically available as square or rectangular boxes, you can work with an experienced signage provider to create custom shapes based on your requirements.

  • Non-Illuminated Flex Face Signs

Non-illuminated flex face sign systems are simpler. They only comprise a clip-on cover and frame. Also, they are flatter and less deep than illuminated flex face signs; therefore, they can be easily fixed on a wall. However, they are extremely durable and sturdy. Here’s how you can make non-illuminated signage pop, day or night.
