Exploring Custom Printed Gifts Across Various Materials

In a world where individual expression and personal touches are increasingly cherished, custom printed gifts stand out for their ability to convey thoughtfulness and creativity. Whether it’s a stunning piece of art on canvas or a uniquely designed acrylic display, the choice of material can greatly influence the impact of your gift. From acrylic and metal to PVC, foam board, gatorboard, and canvas, each material offers unique qualities that can transform your personal or corporate gifts into memorable keepsakes. Let's dig into the possibilities each material presents and how they can be used to craft the perfect custom printed gift.

Acrylic: Elegance and Versatility

Acrylic is renowned for its smooth finish and crystal-clear clarity, making it an ideal medium for sophisticated gifts. Custom printed acrylic gifts can range from photo blocks and awards to decorative pieces and signs. The material allows for vibrant colors and sharp details, offering a glass-like elegance without the fragility. Its durability and weather resistance also make it suitable for both indoor and outdoor gifts.

Metal: Durability Meets Sleek Design

Metal prints exude a modern vibe with their sleek surface and vibrant color reproduction. Custom metal prints can include wall art, personalized signs, and functional items like coasters or business card holders. These gifts are not only visually striking but are also incredibly durable, capable of withstanding elements if used outdoors. The high-definition printing on metal ensures that every detail shines through, making it a fantastic choice for photo gifts that need a touch of sophistication.

PVC: Lightweight and Flexible

PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a versatile plastic material that's both lightweight and durable. It's an excellent choice for creating custom signs, keychains, and promotional items that are easy to display and transport. The flexibility of PVC also makes it possible to print in various thicknesses and even in 3D shapes, offering endless possibilities for personalized gifts that are sure to be both useful and unique.

Foam Board and Gatorboard: The Crafters’ Delight

Foam board and gatorboard are both lightweight materials ideal for creating mounted prints, standees, and vibrant displays. While foam board offers a light, delicate base suitable for indoor displays, gatorboard provides a more robust and moisture-resistant option. Both materials are excellent for event decorations, personalized photo boards, or even artistic reproductions that require easy handling and display capabilities.

Canvas: Classic Charm

Canvas prints bring a classic charm and warmth to any image, making them perfect for gifts that celebrate special moments. Whether it’s a wedding photo, a family portrait, or a child’s artwork, printing on canvas adds an artistic touch that enhances the visual texture of the image. Canvas is versatile too, suitable for gallery-wrapped edges that need no frame, making it ready to hang upon delivery.

Tailoring Gifts to the Material

When choosing a material for a custom printed gift, consider the personality of the recipient and the nature of the occasion. Acrylic and metal are perfect for sleek, modern aesthetics, while canvas suits more traditional tastes. PVC and foam boards offer practicality and flexibility, making them ideal for event-focused gifts or promotional items.

Moreover, the longevity, quality, and display conditions of the chosen material should align with how the recipient will use the gift. For outdoor or functional items, robust materials like metal and PVC are preferable, whereas acrylic and canvas are best for indoor artistic displays.

Custom printed gifts allow for a high degree of personalization that can transform ordinary items into extraordinary tokens of appreciation and celebration. By selecting the appropriate material for your gift, you can ensure that it not only looks spectacular but also serves its intended purpose beautifully. Whether it’s for a corporate event, a personal celebration, or just to show someone you care, a custom printed gift crafted on the right material is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Frequently asked Questions

What is the best material for a livingroom wall print?

We have a lot of products to choose from for a custom indoor wall hanging. Depending on the decor in your living room, you can choose the glossy white gatorboard or an edgy, black matte foamboard and both look amazing in full color print. If you want a really elegant print, acrylic would be our top of the line choice. And our classic aluminum prints are quickly topping the charts as a timeless choice. We have to admit that our canvas prints are still a popular choice and probably always will be. 

What is the best yard sign to get?

Yard signs are great for getting a message out fast. Corplast is a corrugated plastic that is weatherproof and comes in three thickness choices: 4mil, 6mil and 10mil. You can print in full color and order with H stands to make it easy to stick in your yard. The most popular size to order is an 24" wide by 18" tall 6mil yard sign. 

How can I print my original artwork?

Original artwork is priceless so you want to make sure it will last a long time. One of the best ways to showcase your artwork and make sure it lasts is to have it printed on a durable material. Metal is one of the most durable materials you can print on. Both Dibond and Aluminum are great products for printing. You can print in full vivid color and display inside or outdoors. Canvas, gatorboard, foamboard, styrene, PVC and other products are great to print on as well. Whichever product you choose to print your original artwork on, the process is the same. Make sure your artwork is saved as a digital, high resolution file. You can take a photo of it with a digital camera (smart phones will only save your artwork as a 72dpi resolution, but if you are printing it in an 8"x10" or smaller, that can still work). Next, select the product you want to use, select the size you want (as well as any special options) and then upload your artwork file. That's it!

Which decal or sticker should I get?

There are many stickers and decals to choose from so it depends on what you are using it for and what do you want to put it on. There are decals that are have high adhesive (they can be used for semi permanent use), low adhesive (removable if removed within a short time) and no adhesives that are considered static clings. Once you figure out how 'sticky' you want your sticker to be, you then have to decide whether you want your decal to have a background color or did you prefer a clear background. Standard decals, Removable decals and White Static Clings all have a white background on the decals any place that your artwork is not covering. Clear decals and clear static clings both have clear (transparent) background options. The options include spot white and flood white. Almost all of the decals and stickers have three Special Cut options: Circle, Halo and Oval. The Standard decal offers a 4th Special Cut option called Exact Cut. 

What is the best decal for an RV?

Two of our best selling decals for RV's and travel trailers are our Standard White Decals and our Clear Decals. They both are very similar in what they offer but our clear decal can have a transparent background, but our Standard White Decal comes with a white background (or whatever color you choose to put in your artwork file). The second difference is that the both decals come with special cuts: Oval, Circle and Halo, but the Standard White decal also comes with an Exact cut (a really detailed 'die cut' type of option). Both decals are durable, long lasting, are weatherproof and look amazing in full vivid color. 

What are real estate signs made out of?

Most real estate signs are made from a corrugated plastic material commonly called 'Corplast' or 'Coroplast'. Real Estate signs come in three thickness choices: 4mm, 6mm and heavy duty 10mm. The 4mm thickness is typically used for 12" x 12" window type signs. The 6mm thickness is the most common sign choice and is popular for 18" x 24" yard signs. The 10mm is a great choice for 24" x 36" signs. Are three sizes are extremely durable, long lasting and weatherproof. All signs can be ordered with grommets for hanging your signs. 

What kind of sign should I get for my vehicle?

Vehicle magnets are a very popular way to advertise on the go. You can put them on and take them off whenever you want. And a vehicle magnet might be perfect for you, unless you have a newer vehicle that is mostly made of plastic. Before ordering a vehicle magnet, make sure your vehicle is magnetic, test it with a small magnet. 

Our second most popular means of advertising on the go are vehicle window decals. These decals can stay on your window for full time visibility, or you can order our removable decals so that you can place them on your vehicle for events and then remove. 

Where is the best place to get my signs from?

You can do an online search and go with the top paid ad, but that spot is for the company that pays the most for your business, sometimes 70k per month! You can do a local search online and all of the nearby sign shops will pop up but that doesn't tell you much about them. You can look for the lowest price and go with that company, but that doesn't mean they have a quality product. So how do you know what company to go with? Usually it's through a process of elimination. You order from one and have a good experience or a bad experience. If the order arrives late or damaged, you probably won't use them again. 

At we're here to save you time and money. We can offer you a quality product at a great price because we print large volumes at a time. And we ship on time!
