Signwriting & Display

Signwriting Styles

Vipond’s Paints manufactures specialised products to meet the needs of customers in the signwriting, display and exhibit markets. For traditional signwriters who hand paint, Viponds Feature Gloss Enamel, Traditional Sign Enamel, Acrylic Gold Size or Oil Based Gold Size and Drop Black are ideal products. Viponds stocks the Alligator Brush Range which is perfect for hand painting signage such as truck pin-striping.

For the signage print and installation, Viponds Liquid Laminates are available for protection of digital prints along with surface cleaning products. Viponds Prep Lube and Prep Vinyl are likewise perfect for this. When applying self-adhesive vinyl on painted walls, Viponds Self Adhesive Prep Coat is recommended for outstanding results.

The very best sign writing supplies in Melbourne

If you want premium, professional-level sign writing supplies that will allow you to finish the job to the most exacting standards, Viponds is the only company you need to consider. We have the knowledge and expertise to create and select only the absolute finest materials and proudly stand by the quality of every product we offer. Our top-quality materials promise to significantly elevate your artistic and design skills, enabling you to create exceptional works of art and finishes.

Preparing the optimum surface

When it’s time to put your quality sign writing supplies to good use, it’s essential that you give yourself the best chance of success. Nothing could be more problematic in achieving the result you want than having an inappropriate or poorly prepared surface to paint or apply your images onto. This is where Viponds can help. 

Our sign writing surface prep solvents are exceptionally useful, whether you are creating the sign yourself using signwriting brushes and specialist signwriting paint or applying a pre-prepared vinyl sign to a surface. The fast-evaporating solvent contains isopropyl alcohol that will quickly clean and dry all the required surfaces before painting or applying your self-adhesive vinyl.

Vinyl application tips

Vinyl application can be a tricky business to get right the first time, and many of us have been frustrated by attempting it. Re-positioning is almost impossible once self-adhesion takes hold. This is why Viponds also offers a prep lube concentrate. This allows you to accurately move and reposition the vinyl and enhances the adhesion of the finished result.

If used in conjunction with Viponds’ self-adhesive prep coat, you will be giving yourself the best chance of applying your self-adhesive digital prints and vinyl onto internal and external surfaces perfectly.

What colours are best for signs?

For the purpose of maximum visibility, contrast is key when it comes to creating signs that stand out and are easily noticed.

This is something our team has many years of experience with, and we’d be more than happy to provide further details.
