What Are SEG Graphics and Frames?

SEG is short for silicone edge graphics. These high-resolution graphics are printed onto fabric panels using dye sublimation technology. Silicone is sewn around the edges of the frame, thus the name. Each SEG panel is fitted into an aluminum extruded frame, customized to your design. SEG frames are often LED backlit; the result is a stunning display. Because SEG panels are interchangeable, they are also a flexible marketing tool.

From trade show displays to storefronts to street ads, nothing matters more to in-person publicity than standing out. The most effective ads always lie on the cutting edge, using the most advanced printing technology to distinguish themselves. The more advanced your designs, the crisper, bolder, and more realistic the result, producing an image no one will forget.

SEG represents the best in modern signage. Through this innovative fabric printing technology, you can produce images that truly stand out and leave an enduring impression on any audience.

How Do SEG Frames Work?

This sign technology works by sublimating an image to fabric and installing it in a tension frame. After sublimation, a thin silicone gasket is sewn through the fabric's edge. This creates an image that looks continuous uninterrupted by a frame or other hardware.

What Are the Benefits of SEG Frames?

SEG frames offer several advantages compared to standard direct print graphics, including:

High Quality -

Not only do SEG frames have photographic quality and a continuous look, but they're resistant to glare. They also won't fade for years, and because the dye is sublimated directly into the fabric, there's no risk of peeling or cracking. This gives you a beautiful, realistic image that will stand the test of time.

Background Flexibility -

SEG frames can be installed against various surfaces, making them suitable for virtually any application. Whether you need to set up a freestanding storefront sign, mount an image against a wall, or hang an exhibit or display sign, SEG technology can meet your needs.

Varied Customizability -

SEG frames are available in various sizes and profiles to help meet clients' needs. The frames the displays created from them are relatively easy to erect, take down, and transport, so you can quickly produce, supplement, and redistribute ads in tandem with your advertising needs. No matter how little notice you have, you can take full advantage of advertising opportunities whenever and wherever they arise.

Glowing Presentation -

SEG frames do not require lighting but can easily accommodate it. By installing SEG frames onto an LED light box, you can produce a glowing, ethereal image that is certain to impress potential customers.

How Do I Use SEG Frames?

SEG framing starts with choosing your image and a fabric type to display it. Once you've had the image printed on the fabric, take whatever board or other display item you're mounting the image on, place the fabric over that board, and tuck each corner of the fabric into the corresponding corner of the board.

Then, tuck the centers of each side under the board, ensuring the silicon strip faces inward toward the rest of the fabric as you tuck it in. Smooth out all the corners, and you have a bold, realistic image!
