Digital textile printing, especially for soft signage, offers an attractive opportunity for sign makers to expand their services and increase their clientele. Sublimation applications used for soft signage tend to prefer larger substrates, as fabric usually makes the most visual effect when there’s a lot of surface area shown. Flags, stretched fabric, and banners all offer different benefits for various customers. Shopping malls, colleges, museums, restaurants, government buildings, corporate buildings, etc. can all use flags, fabric banners, and pop-up signs to draw attention to many things. What are the advantages of using soft signage to draw attention to your business? 


Soft signage is lighter in weight than other printing materials like 3M premium cast vinyl. It’s easily transported because it can be folded. In recent years, the fabric was mostly used for hanging banners and as signage fixed on metal truss systems. However, applications have since evolved, and there has been the rise of pop-up displays, feather flags, silicone edge graphics, and stretch wrap banners.

The use of fabric in display signage today is the direction most businesses are taking because it’s lightweight and easily manageable for storage, which reduces shipping costs, and is a huge advantage if you plan a national rollout. 


Soft signage is more affordable than traditional sign material. Savings in storage and shipping initially offset the cost of the material. Your staff can easily install and uninstall the signage without the need for professional installers, which further increases your savings. Textiles have also become more affordable because of its increase in use and popularity.


Sublimated soft signage can be washed, steamed, and refreshed to be used repeatedly. Textiles used for soft signage are also crease, fade, and stain-resistant, making them convenient for outdoor applications. 


Soft signage can be used for indoor and outdoor applications, and you can use it for either one-sided or double-sided displays. They can also be used on frameless or thin-framed displays. Lastly, its non-reflective surface can be used as a photographic background where it absorbs the flash.
