Minneapolis Design and Printing for Display Manufacturers

Effective Displays through Quality Design and Printing

Display manufacturing remains an important factor in the ongoing success of in-store marketing and sales. A recent study conducted by IBM and the National Retail Federation found that consumer spending amongst Generation Z—defined as those in the population born in 1995 or later, who will amount to one-third of the U.S. population by 2020—amounted to $829.6 billion in 2015. Two-thirds of those Gen Zers surveyed identified quality as the most important factor in choosing one brand over another. Additionally, 67% of those surveyed indicated they prefer to make their purchases in-store. For retail and office spaces, well-designed displays effectively convey the purpose and quality of companies and products to consumers.

Clear, professional displays impact company success beyond retail spaces. In manufacturing and production environments, displays communicate essential information between departments, encourage compliance with safety standards and increase productivity.

Bring your Ideas to Life Through our Customizable Printing Processes 

UniversalPromo brings over 40 years of experience to every project. For display manufacturing projects we offer two printing methods: hot stamping and pad printing. Pad printing involves a printing process that transfers two-dimensional graphics onto three dimensional surfaces using silicone pads. This method is best suited for displays with contours or irregular shapes.  Hot stamping is a printing method that impresses foil or pre-dried ink onto a two-dimensional surface. The result is a fast-moving process for printing on flat surfaces with few or no errors. Both printing processes offer highly detailed results in a wide spectrum of color, opacity and finishes to match design specifications. Our team will work with you to determine which printing process will achieve the best results for your project.

For both pad printing and hot stamping processes, we complete printing services on a variety of substrates, including but not limited to the following:

  • Polyurethane
  • Polypropylene
  • Polyethylene
  • Metal
  • Glass
  • PVC
  • Pebax ®

Along with the consistency and care that factors into a great-looking end product, UniversalPromo documents all printing processes to ensure compliance and project repeatability. We complete printing projects for medical and non-medical purposes in the same facility in Maple Grove, Minnesota. In addition to documentation of the printing process, we can provide customers with material safety data sheets and certificates of compliance upon request.

UniversalPromo employs state-of-the-art equipment, inks, foils, additives and practices that fulfill even the most stringent safety standards for medical, manufacturing, and engineering markets. We use Class VI Medical Grade inks and hot stamping foils that withstand exposure to chemicals, heat and gas, which means your displays will look great and last for a long time, because every completed project meets our high standards for quality in appearance and reliable performance.

Equally important to what we do is the reason why we do it. Our “why” is you, our customers have been the focus of our business from the very beginning. Whether you want an exterior sign that persists through years of rain or shine, or whether you want a quick pop up sign for a seasonal sale, know that our whole team is committed to providing you with skillful, kind, and affordable service.
