Many people believe that these frames are some of the most amazing things they can ever make on their own. Silicone Edge Graphics (SEG) frames need a lot of excursions to make. You won’t just look for the right materials and get to work. Before you get what you need, there are a lot of errors to be made. But you can avoid that by knowing the right steps to take.
Here is everything you need to know about Silicone Edge Graphics.
1. What Are Silicone Edge Graphics
As we have mentioned, SEG stands for Silicone Edge Graphics. The chances are that you have seen SEG frames when staring at items like pop-up fabric stands and fabric banners for exhibitions and events. However, you might not have known what they are.
Silicone Edge Graphics utilizes high-resolution dye sublimation printed graphic on a fabric. It is then finished using a silicone strip edge or even a gasket that is sewn at the edges. Once the silicone edge is created, it is inserted into the frame of the pop-up stand.
All this work will lead to a frameless appearance displaying taut graphics from one edge to another in the frame.
2. How Does The SEG Frame Work?
The silicone edge makes the SEG graphics a bit different. Note that the silicone edge is sewn right into the edges of the frame. Note that the SEG comes with a unique framework that makes it stand.
The framework has unique grooves that serve as a channel for silicone. After you have attached the silicone to the frame, the silicone will be pushed into the groove so that a taut, seamless, and clean graphic is created. It will stretch to cover the entire framework.
All this might sound like something very easy to do. However, unless you work with an expert or you take the time to learn, you won’t be happy with the results.
