What is a Fiberglass Embedment?
   
 

An Embedment graphic is printed using screen printing or direct digital output.  All inks used in the printing process are UV resistant and have a large color gamut for the utmost in clarity and brilliance.  Once the graphics are printed, the graphic carrier sheet is then laid between layers of fiberglass mat and saturated with resin to produce a one-piece, fiberglass-reinforced panel with embedded, subsurface graphics.

 

Why Fiberglass Embedments?


The endurance of Fiberglass Embedments make them a cost-effective solution to meet a variety of signage needs.  These panels are practically vandal proof, resist adverse weather, including harsh UV rays, are impervious to moisture and are rust-resistant.  Our panels can withstand burns from cigarettes, and scratches usually do not affect legibility and can be buffed and repaired if necessary.  Graffiti can be removed using solvents, without ghosting or hazing the panel's finish.

Screen Printing or Direct Digital Output


Crystal Graphics prints using screen printing and direct digital output, depending on the application.  Screen printing is used when print quantities are high or when the longest outdoor life is needed.  Direct digital output is used on smaller quantity runs.  Recent advances in technology in digital printing, specifically outdoor weatherability, now make it the leading seller in Fiberglass Embedments for interpretive signs.

We produce the graphics using your computer files and print using direct digital output.  Proofs are provided for your approval.  Cost is not affected by the use of photographic images or the number of colors used in your design.
