Figuring out what sign software to buy when you enter large format digital color inkjet printers.

Since floor graphics will tend to be a small quantity of images this kind of a low volume print is precisely that a wide format inkjet printer does best. After you have filled up the wall space you still have all that nice open space of the floor. To do floor graphics requires special laminate to minimize slipping and sliding.

If you use an electrostatic printer then 3M inks on 3M 8660 FloorMinders media with a 3M 8940 overlaminate. This combination comes with a six month warranty for the floor.

You can also get films for floor graphics from USI. They offer Floor Guard, a scuff and skid resistant laminating film specifically for floor graphics. Floor Grip bonds the graphic to the floor yet can be removed when necessary.
