Thermal Printing

Our Gerber EDGE is a real workhorse, one of the first printers to allow sign professionals to digitally create outdoor durable graphics. We print on 15” wide self adhesive vinyl material, typically white or clear, however, depending on the application and design we can also print on colored and decorator vinyls or static cling material. Products produced on the EDGE include decals, product labels, bumper stickers, window clings and many more.

The Gerber EDGE is ideal for producing short-run graphics by using heat and pressure to infuse durable resin pigments to the vinyl substrate. Being that it is a heat and pressure transfer process the resulting product is well suited for both indoor and outdoor environments alike. We create full process color graphics or apply spot color foils including metallic gold and silver. When the final product is used in a potentially abrasive environment we recommend laminating the vinyl to provide long lasting protection. Many designs are printed and then contour cut using the Gerber HS15 Plus plotter, via the perforated tracking and marking. We run our Gerber EDGE using Gerber Omega Composer design and print software.
