Custom Graphic Overlays

Insta-A-ScreenTM Printing

Our Inst-A-ScreenTM printing product was introduced in 1999 enabling us to offer a cost saving alternative to conventional screen printing. Inst-A-ScreenTM provides customers with high quality scratch resistant custom overlays, eliminating the set-up tooling costs and time delays associated with traditional screen printing technology. Starting at $175.00, Inst-A-ScreenTM is ideal for limited run prototypes and offers equally competitive prices for production quantities.

The System

Inst-A-ScreenTM graphics are printed using a thermal transfer process, by which colored resins are fused into the back side of a durable 10mil Polycarbonate/Lexan film. They have the highest level of scratch and chemical resistance available. Once printed, a 3M “Peel-and Stick” adhesive layer is added and the graphics are cut to client specifications. This results in a product that looks and performs like a screen printed graphic, but is produced in a fraction of the time and cost.

All Inst-A-ScreenTM graphics are designed and saved in an electronic format which affords us the ability to make changes to an overlay in a matter of minutes. Our ability to die-cut the graphics in house, eliminates lengthy lead times and expensive tooling charges.
