Materials For Any Project

Planning a custom printing project? StepRepeat.com has the a broad selection of materials to fit your needs.


Whether you're running a promotion or exhibiting at a trade show, we're here to make sure you have the printed items you need, when you need them. From vinyl to dye-sublimated fabric, banners to vehicle wraps, we've got you covered.

1. Dye-Sublimated Fabric
Premium Dye-Sublimated Fabric


Dye-sublimated fabric is perfect for any project that requires extended use. We infuse your design into the fabric, resulting in vibrant colors that will never peel or fade.


The fabric has a matte finish and you can wash, fold, store, and steam it to remove wrinkles, allowing you to reuse the print again and again.

 


Applications: Banners, Pillows, Tension Displays, Hop-Up Displays, Retractable Banners.

Premium Dye-Sublimated Blackout Fabric

Take the quality and storage capabilities of dye-sublimated fabric and add a dense layer of black between the two white layers. The result is a fabric that does not allow light to shine through it, like our block out vinyl but with all the benefits of dye sublimation.


Applications: Banners, Pillows, Tension Displays, Hop-Up Displays, Retractable Banners.

Premium Non-Glare Fabric

This premium material is used by the industry's top professionals. The combined three layers of fabric create high opacity, making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.

 

Applications: Banners, Pillows, Tension Displays, Hop-Up Displays, Retractable Banners.

2. Vinyl
Scrim Economy Vinyl
Our standard vinyl has a gloss finish and is an economical alternative to our premium vinyl. If you're looking for an affordable option for limited or single use banners, economy vinyl is the way to go.

Applications:Step and Repeat BannersRetractable Bannersbillboards, outdoor banners, etc.

Premium Blackout Vinyl

This high-quality vinyl does not allow any light to pass through the back, making it great for outdoor use. It comes complete with a matte finish, ensuring that light is not reflected.

Premium blackout vinyl is not intended for long-term use, though it can be reused if stored properly. Both the economy and premium vinyl cannot be folded, as it will cause the material to crease..

4. Wall Graphics and Window Displays

Removable Wall Graphic

An embossed canvas that can be secured to an interior wall and then removed within up to one year. With a matte finish, it's a great option for decorating your office or home, especially for a specific campaign or if you like to re-decorate on a regular basis.

Size: 6.0 Mil

50/50 Window Perf

If you're looking for an option that allows your window display to be visible from the outside but invisible from the inside, 50/50 window perf is the way to go.


Window perf uses perforated vinyl with round holes and is made up of multiple layers. First, you have the printable, white top layer. Next, is a black layer that allows anyone behind the print to have clear visibility outside. It's then finished with an adhesive coating and liner.


Applications: Vehicle Wraps and Storefronts

5. PVC
MPVC 6 Mil

MPVC is usable both inside and outside and has a smooth, waterproof surface. Those familiar with gator foam will get a lot more mileage out of MPVC due to its higher durability.


Applications:  Signage, POP displays, Life-Size Cutouts

PVC 3 Mil

Like the MPVC, this material has a waterproof surface and works for indoor and outdoor use. Due to its heightened durability, it also makes a great alternative to foam board.

6. Falcon & Foam Board

Falcon Board

Falcon board was designed to handle the most demanding graphics requirements. It uses high-quality white facing and a natural craft paper core to create a unique structure.


Known for its strength, stability, and rigidity, falcon board is an ideal choice for projects that require a high print quality.


Applications:  Interior Signage, 3D displays, and point-of-purchase applications


Sizes:  1/2 inch and 1/4 inch thickness

Foam Board 3/16

Foam board consists of two layers of bleached, white clay-coated paper with a polystyrene core in the center. It has a high-gloss finish and is ideal for indoor use, though it can be used elsewhere on a limited basis.
