Unless you are in the printing or signage industry, your first initial question may be “what exactly is Sintra and how will direct to Sintra prints benefit me or my business?” Well, allow us to tell you!

Sintra is a light-weight PVC “plastic” material that is durable and long-lasting. Because of its sturdy properties, the most common use is for corporate and/or retail signage. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg of what this material can actually offer. There are so many great ways to utilize Sintra, so we’ve put together a short list of 5 great ones off the top of our head – just to name a few!

1. Corporate or Personal Sintra Prints Artwork

When pairing direct to Sintra prints with our custom frames, you get economical and durable prints with a beautiful matte finish – no glass required!  Since our printing process uses UV Curable ink, there is no lamination needed to seal the ink. Prints can be wiped down and cared for easily, without the fear of destroying the artwork. Perfect for an office setting or art gallery.

2. Interchangeable Sintra Wall Art

I have a large 3-foot wide shot of my little boy hanging in my office printed direct to 6mm Sintra with a museum backing. When people see it they are surprised that the quality is so crisp for being printed direct to a “piece of plastic”. The detail is so clear that they practically press their face up to the print to try to pick it apart. Because the quality compares with what you would find in a traditional photographic print, it works great as wall art. One huge advantage is since printing direct to Sintra is so economical, I can swap the print for pennies when I want to change it out for a more current image.

3. Event SignageCustomizable Sintra Board

Another huge benefit to printing on Sintra board, is the light-weight durability. This makes a perfect fit for special event signage. Indoor or outdoor – especially if the signs were designed for multiple usage. Colors also print brightly and work well for directional, welcome, or branded signage.

4. Retail Display


Many retail spaces only focus on sale signage. However, there are many other ways to dress up the interior of your business. Sintra prints can be used as accent elements throughout the store and are a great way to help promote your brand and add visual interests.

5. Direct to Sintra Prints for Outdoor Use

easily be drilled through the board as well, for exterior wall installation. Don’t need corporate signage? Use Sintra prints to create your own backyard art gallery! Hang some artwork outside before your next soiree, or use them to create your own outdoor sanctuary retreat.
