Roberts Awning uses different methods to provide you with the best result for your custom awning, based on your specific needs and the conversations we’ve had to determine your best-fit solution. The process of applying lettering and/or graphics to your awning is usually determined by the type of material being used for the awning, though some materials will accept multiple processes. Below are some of the methods we use:

Sunbrella® Graphics System – From the most well-known and respected name in the industry, the Sunbrella® Graphics System combines Sunbrella’s excellent quality and reliability with modern technology to transfer almost any image, design, or pattern to your awning. What this means for you is that we can create an awning as big as you can dream it, as complex as you need it, and as fast as your deadlines demand.

Eradication – For backlit awnings to give a wonderful lighting effect, we use an eradication process to reverse mask areas of the awning where you’d like graphics, then apply eradication fluid to remove colors from those areas. This allows light to penetrate through the material and provide illumination of the awning in the pattern or design you request without creating ‘cold spots’. The result? A beautiful display that really lets your business “shine through!”
Pressure Sensitive Graphics – This process is used on many vinyl materials and is the easiest to apply. With pressure sensitive graphics, we cut durable cast vinyls on a plotter, after creating the artwork on the computer. After some preparation of the awning material and cut vinyl, the lettering/graphics are applied to the awning in a one-step procedure, creating incredibly sharp, crisp graphics.

These methods are extremely durable and add to your company’s image and visibility while looking very professional.
