There are also hundreds of additional specialty substrates available on which your Level design can be printed:
- Recycled Type II Vinyl
- Window Films & Polycarbonate
- Commercial Pressure Sensitive Films
- Wood Veneers
- Acoustic Sound Control Fabric
- Burlaps, Silks, Jutes, & Paperweaves
- Glass Beads
- Rigid Materials
Many of these materials have already been tested and evaluated by Level, and we routinely print on them (though we generally do not carry them in inventory). Upon request of a material that has note been previously tested, we will gladly attempt to procure and test that material as efficiently and economically as possible. Please be aware that additional charges will apply for this service, and we can make no guarantee as to the printability of untried materials prior to testing.
Contact your sales representative to obtain technical specifications or inquire about the availability of a particular substrate.
All standard substrates offered have been tested to meet commercially acceptable standards of performance. With that in mind, some substrates such as the wood grains or glass beads are by their nature more delicate than a standard vinyl and proper consideration of installation requirements is necessary when choosing these.
It is important to remember that each substrate will handle color differently, and printing on different substrates can have a dramatic effect on the way color is reproduced. For example, a light tan that looks great on a white vinyl may appear much darker on a wood grain substrate, or it may dissapear on a light tan grasscloth. Or a full-coverage design that accentuates a grasscloth may completely obscure the beauty of a glass bead when printed on it. Ask your sales representative for assistance in selecting the right material for your application.
