Proper Lamps for Flex Face

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

We refit a full bleed double sided flex face sign yesterday with new faces from M*****c. Cuomer reported that they look great during the day time but very washed out at night. We have used them before and never had a customer complain. Waht lamps does everyone use in printed flex face installations? Cool White or Day Light? Does Daylight illuminuate a printed face better?

Thanks

Daylights depending on colors but primarily the lower Kelvin scale

Doesn't sound like its the lamps that are your problem here! You may want to touch base w/ your supplier and verify the faces were printed to be backlit.

We always get our flex faces printed on both sides just for this reason.

I also don't think it is a lamp problem.

Thanks Folks,

Wife drove by last night while running our oldest to scouts. She said shes not quite sure what the customer is complaining about. She noticed a little "washout" of the lighter yellow and orange of the logo. She said all in all it looks fine. I'm going to swing by and talk to our client today. We had to go with printed faces instead of yellow cooley because he did not want the deeper yellow of the cooley material. In retrospect I should have had my vendor print both sides. We have done the single print for a number of Dick's Sporting Goods cabinets with nice results using day lights lamps. Cool whites produce a more yellow light and washed out the color of the flex face. When we installed daylights the color transmitle was much cleaner.

Again, thanks for the input everyone.

Just a quick follow up, we were informed by our vendor that a single print may result in some "washout" issues. We elected to go with a single print because we had to tighten our belt on this one. Thanks for everyones advise as it is always appreciated. Our vendor has always treated us fairly and delivered what was promised. This was an issue brought about entirely by us. We'll truth be told by me.

Thanks Folks

Mike B
