2018 Was a Great Year!

Thanks to the loyalty and business provided by our customers we produced over 100,000 signs in 2018. First time we have ever produced that many signs.

As a demonstration of our commitment to Superior Customer Service we fulfilled 2,707 orders in 2018 and of those over 96% were shipped complete and on-time to the date that we promised when we received the order from our customers. That is one of the highest accomplishments possible in the sign industry considering that every order is custom and most signs within each order are different from the others.

Our entire team is focused on making signs that are of the highest quality, matching customer designs and intent and making the experience an pleasant one for our sign company customers. Our customers don’t have to worry about getting their signs on-time.

When Performance Counts, Sign Companies Can Count on Graphic Components!

Graphic Components Featured in Recent Article by MULTICAM

Graphic Components was recently featured in an article by MULTICAM, a premier CNC Cutting Machine company with an expansive service network throughout the United States. Graphic Components uses a MULTICAM APEX3R CNC Router to achieve products at fast production settings. In this article, we discuss why we chose this product, how we use it, and the advantages we’ve experienced since buying it for our signage shop. Here are some highlights from the article that our customers found the most valuable.

What do you like most about the MULTICAM machine and what makes it the right choice for your applications? Approximately how much time did it save you?

“We used to do routing manually/painstakingly versus being able to incorporate the camera registration into a lot of our processes. Now we’re able to add/print registration dots to the art work so we don’t have to worry about keeping the sheets square. The camera itself automatically squares the sheet on the table and cuts it very accurately.”

“Basically, we’ve been able to save a lot of time by using the camera and automatic multi-tool changer whereas on the old router we had to change bits manually between each different path we wanted to do. I would almost guarantee we spend 50% less time routing our pieces with the APEX3R CNC Router from the process we used to do before.”

What type of material(s) and/or parts do you frequently cut?

“Especially for the MULTICAM Router we cut a lot ADA compliant signage and architectural interior signage (i.e. apartment and hospital signage) out of acrylic, aluminum, PVC, HDU, and photopolymer.”

When Performance Counts…..You Can Count on Graphic Components

As a leading fabricator of wholesale ADA signage and wholesale Interior signage, we take pride in our team’s focus on performance for our sign company customers.

Sign companies rely heavily on outsourcing of certain types of signs, such as ADA Room Identification and Wayfinding signs that require specialized equipment and manufacturing processes to be fabricated correctly. While some suppliers can make these signs they struggle to get them done in the promised lead times. This causes unnecessary stress for the sign company.

At Graphic Components our company culture revolves around our providing superior customer service. We hold daily meetings focusing what needs to be done to ensure that we ship our customers’ orders complete and on-time.

Even while we experienced growth of 37% in 2017, we still maintained an enviable and industry leading 97% of all orders shipped complete and on-time!
