Energy-Efficient LED Lighting for Backlit Graphics

LED Lighting plays an important role in perimeter lit silicone-edge fabric light box displays. The difference between good lighting and bad lighting in a light box makes all the difference in your graphic’s overall appearance. The best perimeter lighting should bring backlit fabric to life with an evenly-lit vibrant glow, but the LED’s must be powerful enough to illuminate the graphic evenly and also energy-efficient enough to be economical. With the advancements in lighting technology, we are able to introduce our newest generation of LED lighting, BIPS Edge Lit LED Module.

Built-in Power Supply LED Light Modules

BIPS stands for Built-In Power Supply. With the power supply built into the light module itself, the BIPS LED does not need a separate power supply like past generations of light bars. Simply connect the light bar to a 110v or 240v power source and the built-in power supply automatically inverts the signal to the 24v needed for the LED lights.

With a life expectancy of over 30,000 hours and only requiring 14w per bulb, the BIPS Edge Lit Modules adds a little more punch to your backlit graphics.

Divine Flooring uses SEG Fabric to Enhance Showroom

This month we were featured in Big Picture Magazine for our work with Divine Flooring, an award-winning designer flooring company dedicated to revealing the stunning beauty of natural wood. For the project, we produced 5 large SEG fabric displays to compliment their new showroom in Vancouver.

SEG is short for Silicone Edge Graphics, which is a printed fabric graphic with a thin silicone beading sewn neatly around the edges that fits into a frame.  Once the fabric is completely inserted into the frame it has a smooth appearance that modern brands love. This was the perfect solution for Divine Flooring. We are excited about being recognized for this project because Big Picture Magazine is one of the leading resources for the wide format digital printing market. They deliver coverage of the hottest printing products and technologies.

SEG Fabric Signs Make Fitness Look Easy at Under Armour Stores

Silicone Edge Graphics Used for Fitness Motivation

Under Armour is an activewear brand know for apparel and accessories designed for fitness.  When you walk into an Under Armour store you can’t help but be inspired by the gigantic imagery featuring some of the world’s top athletes.  The concept of motivational graphics is not unique to clothing apparel stores; however, the combination of form and size are.

What Is SEG Signage?

Under Armour is using SEG signage throughout their stores.  SEG is short for Silicone Edge Graphics.   This trending new form of signage is printed on a durable fabric material and then sewn around the edge with a thin silicone strip that fits into the framing system.  The large SEG graphics used by Under Armour can be folded up to fit in a small box for transportation, but once stretched into a frame, they give a smooth and taut appearance.

This is what makes SEG signage different for retailers like Under Armour.  In the past, shipping and installing large sizes of imagery in a retail store was a monumental and expensive task.  Now with SEG, store employees can easily take on the responsibility of changing out this size of signage before each season.

SEG fabric signage is easy to install in the frames and doesn't get damaged, it's a really fast way to change the store's appearance. The visual difference is dramatic!

SEG Signage is Easy For Retailers

Many retailers are starting to incorporate SEG Fabric Signs in their visual merchandising strategy but we haven’t seen any use is it quite as effectivley as Under Armour.  

Every Under Armour store uses a combination of printed backlit SEG with frameless light boxes as well as standard non-lit fabric.  The sizes and applications used throughout the store dramatically showcase the diversity in merchandise. 

Each section of the store has a different visual theme based around the products in that department.  The enormous presences of imagery printed on SEG fabric with world class athletes such as Misty Copeland, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Steph Curry provide a big impact.   You can’t help but be inspired.

Apple is using Backlit SEG Tension Fabric and Lightboxes for Signage in Stores.

These SEG lightboxes with Backlit SEG Tension Fabric Graphics were spotted inside the Apple Store on Prince Street in New York City.

SEG is short for Silicone Edge Graphics, which means that the graphic has a thin silicone strip sewn around the perimeter that fits into a minimalistic SEG frame or lightbox for display.  SEG is an emerging category in signage that many top brands and retailers are using today; including H&M, GAP, Macy’s and Tesla Car Dealerships.

Known for their retail store design and outstanding in-store visuals, Apple has always been a leader in providing an excellent retail shopping experience.  It is exciting to see them transitioning their stores to using SEG signage. If Apple is using SEG then it is a significant indicator that this category has obvious benefits over traditional signage solutions.

40 VISUALS did not produce the SEG Lightbox and Fabric that is displayed at the Apple stores but we are a leader in the SEG signage category. If you are interested in using SEG signage for promotion please fill out the form below and we will give you a shout to disucuss options.
