A complete sign and graphics solution

About Vinyl by Design

Vinyl by Design are a family run company, based in Coventry. They specialise in supplying sign-writing and professional printing throughout the Midlands. They work extensively with the automotive industry and specialise in high quality, professional sign-writing for cars, vans, lorries and other fleet vehicles. The company also provides signage solutions from small point of sale signs to large format banners.

In order for Vinyl By Design to excel in the highly competitive graphic arts market its imperative to consistently provide outstanding quality, quick turnaround print at a reasonably competitive price.

Before investing in their new technology, Vinyl By Design completely outsourced all of their print – and solely focused on the cutting and installation of signage and vehicle graphics.

Since becoming a chosen supplier of vehicle graphics and luxury car showroom signage to a number of the UK’s largest car retailers, it was important that VBD could meet demanding lead times and manage unexpected workloads without compromising on quality.

The solution

Since deciding to bring their print and production in house, Vinyl by Design have been able to completely control costs, deliver more consistent product quality and better manage unexpected workloads along with more frequent changes in customer requirements.

Many of Vinyl by Design’s customers rely on the powerful mean of visual communication in order to connect with their own customers. We decided their workflow should begin at a Caldera VisualRIP+. Perfect for any sign and graphics vendor, this software can seamlessly amalgamate each component of the print room from cut, colour management and cost control programs. With a host of sophisticated features and intuitive GUI, VisualRIP+ facilitates complex, multi-device workflows for more effective large-format print and print-to-cut production. Utilising a powerful ICC color calibration engine and a range of optional modules, this is the ideal RIP solution for growing businesses.

We installed a Mutoh ValueJet 1624X 64 inch large format printer. Designed to handle a variety of indoor and outdoor printers, the ValueJet produces excellent quality, long lasting signage and vehicle graphics. This printer offers a combination of the latest technical design and ease of use to deliver unrivalled print quality. The medium to high volumes made this printer a perfect fit for Vinyl by Design.

Included in the fleet was a Summa SummaCut D140FX, the powerful features of this cutting plotter incorporate a high speed cutting head for reliable and effortless vinyl cutting, OPOS X contour cutting alignment enabling die-cut printed vinyl graphics with complete confidence and ease and integrated media rollers to keep the media on track even when cutting at top speed.
