Thanks for your phone call and email request for supply of Wagga bin stickers, we would be very happy to work with you on your Bin Safety sticker project and help contribute to safety awareness in our communities and hopefully saving lives.
Attached is your pricing for three size options for stickers, photos of laminated 3M bin stickers that we printed in 2009 and 2011 and also an un-laminated bin sticker.
Also to the left is 3 mockups of your new black bin with your proposed artwork at the size of 600mm x 400mm, and two other size options 300mm x 420mm and 210mm x 300mm.
The Speed Matters, Slow Down signage is for the benefit of vehicles or drivers so size is important if they are going to be able to see and be reminded to “Slow Down”
Please Note – The SVC Logo on the bin artwork attached will be changed to your Wagga Wagga Logo with proof sent for your approval.
The reflective is 3M™ 7310 Flexible Engineer Grade Reflective Sheeting. It has been specially designed to have high scratch resistance and is flexible and durable. The sheeting features micro-prismatic optics that return light to drivers under a diverse set of night time viewing geometries that are encountered by the driving public.
When applied to properly prepared substrates, the Sheeting provides long-term reflectivity and durability. This white Sheeting has been designed for use in the production of retroreflective commercial signs, non-regulated traffic control signs that are exposed vertically in service and pressure sensitive stickers.
The artwork is printed with a long term EcoSolvent ink, when the vinyl is heated the ink goes into the vinyl substrate, rather sitting on top of the vinyl as is the case with screen printing, UV and Latex printers, this is giving a life of 7 years for the 3M reflective and giving you good clear artwork, 3M also warranty their product for the same time with our EcoSolvent printer.
Attached are photos of 3M bin stickers that we printed for Katopra bins in 2009 at Russell st and 2011 in Wynyard st.
The non-laminated sticker photo is showing a lot of scratches and ageing and would have faded to white if it was stored in the open weather and sun. The gloss over laminate protects you artwork from scratches and weathering giving you a much longer sticker life with clear artwork. The over laminate also gives a little more rigidity to the vinyl making it much easier for you to install.
Damage will be inevitable on some bins, the attached damaged bin sticker photo with a severe scratch across the face is showing that it has not pulled the sticker off the bin and has still stuck very well.
We have done adhesion tests on existing council bins for both products and know that either of these stickers will meet and exceed your expectations for the bin signage giving you exceptional value for the life of the sign / bin.
The new black bins have not had an adhesion test for the stickers yet and should also be tested as they can be made with several diffrent materials besides having the recycled content in each bin which potentially could affect the stickability on a new bin.
We will also be happy to give you test samples for the new bins and show and provide cleaning and sticker application instructions so the installation process goes smoothly.
