Color Info

This is for customers to help them understand how many colors their signage will have and what they should do if they're not sure. The price of the sign changes depending on the number of colors it has, so be careful when deciding! 

When you figure out what type of material you'll need on your signage but are not sure about how many colors you need, we have some guidelines below that can steer the way towards design success! 

For large quantities, our 1, 2, and 3 color processes go through our screen-printing production method. This involves using solid blocks of colored ink and printing 1 color at a time in layers to create your final image.

1 Color

3 Color

1-3 color options are unable to produce images containing gradients or grayscale / full color photographs/images.

Standard Colors: 1-3 color designs go through our screen printing process. Screen printing uses mesh stencils and solid ink colors to create stunning, crisp imagery at a cost-effective price point. Unlike conventional printers which mix inks before laying them down, screen printing lays one solid color down at a time in a layering process to produce a final image. 

Below is a digital representation of solid ink colors that we have ready and in stock.

Super Cheap Signs uses our selection of Standard Colors to accommodate a wide range of designs.

Color Matching Services: Colors falling outside of our Standard Color chart must be hand-mixed by our print technicians. For 1-3 color designs requiring specific colors you can add on PMS color service item and we will use the specific PMS code you choose. If no code is provided, the closest printable approximation will be mixed.

Full Color (full bleed)

Photographs, gradients, PMS colors, raster images full bleed on 18x24 and larger.

Full Bleed: Artwork background must be separate, vector or sent half an inch larger than size of media ordered. We cannot do a bleed on any sizes smaller than 18x24 (i.e 6x24, 9x24, 12x18 etc.)
