Table Banner- used like a table cloth, Unlimited Signs, Brookfield, CT

table banner

Most people think of banners- typically a temporary sign that draws attention to a business or an event. They are noticeable because of their size or their color, which draws the eye. In a busy area, a banner can be used to separate a business from the rest of the crowd. Large banners are typically used as tools for an announcement. However, banners can be more than that. One popular is a table cloth.

 The table banner material is made with scrim vinyl, which is the most common substrate (material) for printing outdoor banners. The scrim vinyl is a polyethylene substrate, reinforced with polyester cording. This internal cording is what it strength and durability to withstand damaging winds and weather conditions. Since the material is used for the outdoor, it can resist spills on the banner. However, you need to wipe up the spill right away. Or just wipe it off with water. It will be great for outdoor parties or company parties.

 The best thing about a table banner is that is served for two reasons:

 1)Promoting the company or event: you can put your business logo, name and address on the banner. Typically you will see the logo, name, and address near the bottom of the banner so everyone can see it.

2) It serves as a cloth so food or drinks do not spill on the table. Since most people leave stains on the table cloths, this material can be wiped up without stains, if you do this right away.

How to store the banner for the future:

The most important thing is that is strongly recommended to roll the banner, not fold it. If folded, the banner may become wrinkled or creased. While rolling a vinyl banner make sure it is rolled with design surface inside. It will be a good idea to have your banner in a tube to secure it. Also, make sure your banner is securely clean and dry so there will be no mildew. It is impossible to remove mildew. The place where your banner is being stored should be dry and cool.

Wave Runner decals- Brookfield, CT

Jet Ski decals

A customer of ours, loves Candlewood lake. He drives his boat and his wave runner in the lake every year. In order to ride any transportation vehicles in the lake or any water, you must register your water vehicle. You need registration numbers and some people like a name on their vehicle.

WaveRunner is a trademarked name and type of personal water craft (PWC) produced by the Yamaha Motor Company.[1] Unique to the WaveRunner among PWCs is the spout of water that shoots into the air from the rear of the vehicle, the sole purpose of which is to help in making it more readily seen by other boaters.

 Here are some questions people have when buying or renting a water vehicle such as a wave runner.

 What is legal for PWC (Personal Water Craft)operators?

 Law Concerning PWC Operators and Hours of Operation. You must be at least 14 years of age to operate a PWC, unless a supervising person at least 16 years of age is also on board the personal watercraft. ... If a PWC is operated at night (sunset to sunrise), the PWC must display the required navigation lights.

How many hours does a WaveRunner last?

Anything more than 30 hours per year is considered “high hours”. Most jet ski models have a lifespan of approximately 300 hours, but if properly maintained they can last much longer.

Is a jet boat considered a PWC?

They may not look likeboats, but personal watercraft are classified as boats and are subject to the same boating laws as a 40 foot yacht. A PWC is considered a small vessel that uses an inboard jet as its primary source of propulsion. ... Vessel type.

To decal the Wave Runnerwe used wrap vinyl. We cut the numbers and letters using our plotter. For more information regarding decals, check out our website at unltdsigns.com

Trailer Partial Wrap- Defeo Manufacturing- Brookfield, CT

Defao trailer

The founder of the company, Artie Defeo, worked for an Allison Dealer in the 1970s, into the early 1980s. The dealership he worked for at the time was having availability issues getting a part from the Allison factory. The part was needed to complete an Allison transmission project for a local utility company. A few weeks went by, and the part was still unavailable from the Allison Factory. Artie couldn’t wait any longer and took matters into his own hands. Using his machining background, he fabricated a replacement part he could use in place of the part that was unavailable from the Allison factory. This part functioned and performed great, and word quickly got around the industry that Artie had these replacement parts in stock. Soon, the other companies that were having the same issue getting this part from the Allison factory started to call Artie. The part Artie had developed was not only in stock but was at a much more affordable price than what the Allison factory was offering. A light bulb when off in Artie’s head, and one part became two, two soon became four, so on, and so on. Before he knew it, a business was born. In 1984 he took his idea of selling commonly needed replacement parts for Allison Transmissions.

 Their mission statement – To provide their customer with the best quality parts and services in the industry, allowing them to obtain the most cost-effective solutions to their Allison Transmission needs while minimizing downtime.

Anthony Defeo wanted his trailer wrapped. Unlimited Signs Designs and Graphics was happy to do that service for them. We used vehicle wrap and laminate to print the graphics on. It took almost a day to put the graphics on due to the ridges and rivets on the trailer. If you are thinking about wrapping your trailer, please do not hesitate to call at 203-546-7267.

Custom hanging signs, White Silo Sherman, CT

WHITE SILO

White Silo is a rustic old barn turned into a winery. They offer a beautiful winery experience that includes wine, lunch and a tour. They also offer group wine tasting. Check out what people are saying:

Lori L.

  • Hopewell Junction, NYstated: What a gem in a small rural area north of Danbury, CT! The quaint, rustic old barn that has been turned into a winery. We signed up for the tour, wine tasting and lunch. Lunch consisted of a box lunch- sandwich on a multigrain roll, quinoa salad, cheese, nuts, and dried fruit as well as dessert and a small container of mixed chocolates. All served with a glass of sparkling wine. We ate outside on one of many tables set up around the property, all with views of the surrounding vineyard and hills. Tour was very informative - history of the property as well as the winemaking business. The tasting involved selecting four wines ( choose from sweet and dry wines) and their red sangria. Very personable! Great activity for a nice outdoor day but activities can all be held indoors. Learned they also have festivals and brunch events too so we will go back!


Amanda O.

  • Danbury, CT:I love silo. The staff and owners are super friendly and helpful, and the events through the season are always great, like the rhubarb festival and chocolate and wine paintings. There's always interesting art for sale, and the grounds are lovely.

Lisa from White Silo wanted to redo their signs. The road sign and the open sign. We printed it on vinyl  and mounted it on MDO (wood). They loved the job we did.

Fighter Plane decal- Danbury CT

plane decal

Mustangs, Mitchells, Catalinas, Flying Fortresses, Liberators, Corsairs. Combat aircraft that were everyday companions to airmen in the World War II generation have become extraordinary treasures to many in the next: symbols of the courage and sacrifice that even younger generations have come to regard as part of the national identity. The United States produced more than 300,000 airplanes in World War II.

Museums across the country have preserved and display these airplanes; some are exhibited in public spaces like Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, where a solitary F4F Wildcat honors Navy Medal of Honor winner Butch O’Hare.

One of our customers came in and wanted special decals for a World War Two fighter plane, North American P-51 MustangThe North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in 1940 by North American Aviation in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission.

What does P 51 stand for?

In 1948, the designation P-51 (P for pursuit) was changed to F-51 (F for fighter) and the existing F designator for photographic reconnaissance aircraft was dropped because of a new designation scheme throughout the USAF.

Our customer wanted two decals on the plane. He called it a flying memorial for a good friend that passed away, Capt, Bill “Papa” Jenson and the other decal (the other side of the plane) is for his wife ‘Geri”. Most pilots from WW2 named their planes after their girlfriends or wife.

To do the plane decal we did the following: We use vinyl material and cut and weed out the letters. We put this on application tape. The customer then applied the letters to the plane. The plane was at his place. If you are interested in vehicle lettering or number, check out our website at unltdsigns.com

The making of a military(Marine) clock, Wingdale, NY

 

making of a military clock

A customer wanted something special for her boss. Her boss got a promotion and was leaving to Arizona. She wanted to buy a special gift to give to her boss. Originally she wanted a name plate for her boss’s new desk in Arizona. But we did not have the plaque material in stock. She needed the gift right away. We tossed around a few ideas that we could make in one day. One item we knew we had in stock was a round glass clock. Since we had the clock materials in stock,  we decided the clock will work. Knowing about the customer’s boss, we suggested that the numbers on the clock be rifles since the boss was a shooter in the Marines. Since we are proud of our military, we have all the military logos. We used the Marine logo in the middle of the clock and his name on top. The customer was so excited.

 How to make a custom clock. All you need is an imagination of what you want on the clock. If you want a picture, the picture should be high resolution such as 300 pixil per inch.
