Re-Usable Banners | Vinyl Lettering | Rubber Stamps | West Sussex

Plastic Fantastic

Karen Griffin - Thursday, June 21, 2012

Vinyl products are really popular at the moment with our customers - and the Jubilee has seen a huge rise in orders for the re-usable banners.  We have never made so many in one month!  And after six years of trading, each year the number of banners sent back to us for an annual date change is increasing, so we are very grateful for all of our customers' patience during May as we worked all hours to meet their deadlines.

Businesses need to adapt as they grow, so we are introducing a 'reminder' email system to notify customers 8 weeks before their regular events.  This will, hopefully, give us time to update your banners and give you time to get the full 30 days of displaying them!

Vinyl is a very versatile product.  We use it for banners, cars, boats and shop windows mostly, and we use different types and grades of vinyls for the different uses.  But where did it come from?

Vinyl was developed in the 1920's, and it is a by-product of the oil industry - a mixture of petroleum and salt.  It is very recyclable - and can be made into second generation products very easily, but the big problem is still collection.  Many vinyl users (such as carpet manufacturers who use it as backing) have organised recycling programmes but here in the UK there are not many plants dedicated to recycling vinyl.

A quick internet search for vinyl usually brings up vinyl records - for those of us old enough to remember them! - but in reality the biggest use of vinyl products is in pvc piping.  This is a great alternative to metal water piping, which corrodes, creating leaks.  So vinyl is TRULY  environmentally friendly and helps to save one of the Earth's resources.

The most unusual use is probably vinyl for the beauty industry - instead of nail polish!  Thanks to Toucan Beauty for the lovely vinyl pedicure!

Goodness knows what your workshop smells like, because these banners have rather an orange-y whiff to them now!
