Full Color Signs & Banners...
We provide signs for displays, point of purchase, trade show exhibits, as well as banners and posters. MFA offers full color digital printing on a variety of media along with all the professional touches to complete the job including laminating, mounting, Velcro® dots and grommets.
Easel held special events signs, window display signs, counter top signs are several of the many applications we can fill. Combined with our laminating and mounting service they remain durable and vibrant for many years. For long term outdoor signs, we'd be glad to refer you to an appropriate associate vendor that can better meet those needs as well.

For best color and clarity we recommend letting us scan your art. Our scanners are calibrated to our printing system.
If you scan or photograph your own art we cannot guarantee a high resolution piece. Please provide the original or a color sample to test for color correctness. If you do not provide a reference we cannot guarantee correct color.
If you bring a digital file from another print provider, there is still no guarantee we will get the results you are expecting. Each system is different and you may be charged for any additional time necessary to make color corrections. It is best to bring the original or something to provide color reference.
We cannot use Microsoft Publisher or Word files to print from. Please convert these types of files into a PDF format.
Low resolution images off the Internet will not print clearly. They need to be at least 200 ppi at the actual size to be printed.
All digital files will incur a minimum $11 setup fee for processing. If your digital file is not ready to print, you will be charged for the time necessary to make it printable. We charge $50 per hour. If you are unsure of how to prepare your file, please call and ask before you create it.
We can provide proofs via email or hard copies upon request. The first proof is free. Additional proofs for changes will be charged for the time needed to make changes or adjustments and create them. No charge will be made due to correcting errors on our part.
