Minuteman makeover for Bath salon

Bath-based Minuteman Press has revealed how it has been using Drytac Polar Premium to produce new window graphics for neighbouring business Material hair salon on a monthly basis.

Drytac Polar Premium is an 80-micron polymeric printable self-adhesive vinyl designed to withstand extreme temperatures and conditions, and is suitable for short-term graphics applications.

Graphics are printed on an HP Latex 360 and cut on either its Summa vinyl cutter or Valiani flatbed cutter, before being installed on the windows at the salon.

“Material wanted to add some colour to the street by having monthly window graphics that tie in with a theme,” Minuteman’s large-format manager Kieran Blacknall says.

“Every month it's something different so we look forward to seeing what their designer has come up with - we've had bunnies at Easter, lollipops in the summer, fireworks in November. We like to guess what will come next month."

“We find it so easy to install with a water solution, and removing it is easy with the right tools. The fact that it's a polymeric vinyl really helps with removability.

“We've found that monomeric equivalents tend to break during removing, particularly in cold weather, so I'm happy to use a premium product as it does save us time in the long-term.”
