  • Laminating: we can add laminating film to vinyl banners and  paper signs to make them weatherproof, stiffer and more resistant to stains, tears and other  damage. 
  • Contour cutting : we can cut right to the edge of the design. This gives it a more streamlined appearance, as it reduces excess borders or background space. 
  • CNC routing: computer numerical control (CNC) routing machines create precision shapes for your sign with, regardless of how intricate. 
  • Hemming: when your banner is finished, hemming strengthens the edges and gives them a more beautiful appearance. Hemming is achieved by folding the edges and heat-welding or sewing the vinyl material. 
  • Seaming: similarly to hemming, this is a technique for creating a robust, reinforced and coherent finish for the edges of your sign. 
  • Grommets: these are reinforced holes in the hem of a banner, allowing the banner to be hung from fixed points. 
  • Pole pockets:  these are formed on a banner’s edges by folding the edge and attaching it to the back of the banner, allowing a pole to be inserted to support the signage. 
  • Stands: One Source Media can provide a variety of stands to support and display our printed Signage!

Can you do offset printing?

Offset printing is a method by which the image is moved (or “offset”) to a rubber roller then to a printed surface. Also termed “offset lithography,” this method is ideal for large-scale productions such as magazines, newspapers, catalogs, or books. 

At One Source Media, we utilize roll offset printing, which is a high-speed device that feeds the paper rolls through the printer. The pages are separated and cut after printing. We can handle all your offset printing needs throughout the greater NYC metro!
