Part 4 – Substrates

Welcome to the final installment of our series looking in-depth at everything SpeedPro Centreville.

Now, last but not least we take a look at the different types of materials – substrates that we print on and some of their different uses –

  • Banners: Fabric, Mesh, Vinyl
  • Corrugated plastic
  • Lightweight plastic options – Foamcore, PVC…
  • Aluminum
  • Vinyl and wall mural panels
  • Carpet Tile, Ceiling Tiles etc.
  • Labels & Stickers
  • Temporary to permanent cement and exterior applications.

As previously mentioned, we print BIG and we have the imagination to match!

Substrate display board
We put together this tactile substrate station to show the different looks and feel of the materials available.

We provide printed solutions! With our ability to print on a rigid substrate or a roll of material, we can provide you with a wide range of substrate options needed for all situations.

When it comes to external projects where moisture and weather conditions will need to be considered for the material used and our UV inks provide a long lifespan with any exterior signage and its exposure to sunlight. We are able to provide cost-effective alternatives to enable you to have the desired outcome you imagined.

Where and how a sign or banner or graphic is going to be installed will also need to be considered when we look at providing the right material for the job. Nails, brackets or grommets, we will discuss this at the early stages and steer you in the right direction!

This concludes our 4 part series, detailing the different aspects of Speedpro Centreville and the products and services we provide and the industries who benefit.

To keep up to date with our latest projects you can subscribe to our newsletter – the weekly wrap up or like us on Facebook @speedprocentreville.

Part 3 – Placement & Installations

From floor graphics to Planes, Trains, and Automobiles – we can do it!

  • Building Exteriors
  • Glass doors & Windows
  • Lobbies & Hallways
  • Conference Rooms
  • Fences & Poles
  • Elevators, Escalators – even Stair graphics!
  • Construction site barriers

 

 

There are many elements to consider with the installation of any graphic, some cautionary advice, and the silver lining.

With large exterior signs, there’s, of course, the permission requirements, the licensed contractors, permits and utility preparation. Do you need to dig holes for the support beams? Do you need a ladder, lift (or a crane!) to get high enough? And so on…

Even with interior jobs, big or small – you are working with incredibly tacky material, designed to stick and hold on to the first surface it comes across – even itself. This makes getting it level, smooth and in some cases aligned with other panels something to leave to the professionals.

When installing wraps on vehicles there is additional equipment as well – from heating the vinyl to give it extra flexibility, extra strength magnets to hold the sheets of material in place and expertly curving the design around existing elements of the vehicle, such as side mirrors or door handles.  Our goal is to have your vehicle back on the road making money for your business as quickly as possible. With our very own installation bay a 24-hour turn around time can be expected in most cases. Our professional installers have what it takes to get the job done right!

We are a full-service Print Studio, which means we can handle everything from the design and layout to the installation of your new signage or mural. It’s our job to make sure that you are receiving the best customer service experience that we can provide, each and every time. We work around your schedule to arrange installations, meaning less hassle and a limited wait time to have your new graphics on display.

UPCOMING EVENTS & OPERATION SCHOOL BELL DONATION DRIVE

As mentioned in our previous newsletter and blog, Speedpro Centreville is working with the Assistance League of Northern Virginia to volunteer hours and effort to their philanthropic programs.

One of these programs, Operation School Bell, provides children with clothes, jackets, shoes and personal grooming supplies. Often these items are the first time they have had something brand new. Children enrolled in this program go on to miss fewer school days and experience greater educational success. Read more here.

The school year 2015-16 saw the provision of new clothing or shoes to 814 children. Haircuts for 400 kids and 466 students were provided with their own toiletries and grooming products. And this is Speedpro Centreville’s next area of focus. We are going to be hosting a collection point as part of Assistance League’s spring toiletries drive.

toiletries1

Of course, the list could be endless but the following items have the highest demand;

  • Toothpaste & Toothbrushes
  • Deodorant
  • Shampoo
  • Body Wash

Teen related or baby products are graciously received and we kindly request full-sized toiletry and personal grooming supplies over travel sized and samples.

Improve health and self-esteem by simply donating new personal care products to us at the following events and locations:

April Newsletter – It starts with giving

 

At SpeedPro Centreville we want to forge long-lasting relationships with our clients and in our community. And during March we worked hard to implement that ethos and we commit to continue working with that philosophy each and every month!

Raising the Roof gala benefiting Helping Haitian Angels

With over $160,000 raised and 5 children fully sponsored for the next year, the Raising the Roof gala was definitely a huge success! This annual gala supports the work of Helping Haitian Angels, a charitable organization established in 2008, that has developed a community in Haiti.

This year’s focus was to raise funds to build a church for the children, as well as the wider community who also flock to the village to attend.

After visiting herself, studio owner Amy will also have a special connection to this passion project and we were delighted to assist with the event display signage.

 

Volunteering with Assistance League of Northern Virginia

This wonderful organization meets monthly at Dominion Virginia Power in Herndon to pack non-perishable food items, which are then delivered to local schools as part of the Weekend Food for Kids program. With 1 in 6 children at risk for hunger in Northern Virginia alone, this is clearly a worthy cause, and with a team of volunteers, they have delivered 13,556 bags of food during the last school year!

 

Did you know?

Our neighbors in Flannery Court, House of Mercy is a treasure trove of bargains & interesting finds! We have had particular success in repurposing picture frames for various projects in the studio, as well as taking advantage of their 25 cent days on all women’s clothing!! (Monday’s if you are interested)
