The "Whole Solution" 3M™ Approach

In the highly regulated traffic sign industry, the requirements for color, retro reflectivity and durability are strict.  To ensure compliance with these requirements, it is important fabricators adopt and use a “whole solution” approach.  It is not just the printer, but the printer, ink, sheeting and protective overlaminate that are proven to work seamlessly together and to produce compliant and durable signs.

To that end, make sure that you benefit from a matched components warranty that covers the finished image, in additional to any of the solution components themselves by including it in your specification.
