Arlon Announces the Release of a New Economical 5-Yard Package for Series 2100 HP in 15” Punched and 24” Unpunched Widths

Arlon announces the release of a new economical 5-yard roll package for Series 2100, cast film in 15” punched 
and 24” unpunched widths. With the tight economy, small and medium sign shops are starting to shy away from 
buying 50-yard rolls of colored cast film; especially outside the standard white, red, blue, and black fast movers 
that most shops use everyday.  According to Arlon’s research, signs and banners are often restricted to those 
‘fast mover’ colors or digital printing with a trade-off in creativity or in warranty life. To meet this trend head on, 
Arlon will offer these short rolls in 83 colors at the same sq.-ft. price as larger rolls.

“This package is the right solution for today’s economy,” states Ron Hopkins, Arlon President. “It enables sign 
shops to maintain color creativity while keeping inventories at a bare minimum.  Our distributor channel partners 
will appreciate it too, and due to the low investment requirement, they will be able to avoid backorders and keep 
the full range of colors always available for their sign shop customers.”

Arlon Digital Print Media offers the versatility needed for today’s applications

Santa Ana, CA. - March 24, 2006- Today most sign and service bureau’s use large-format digital-printing 
processes to produce murals. While billboard products and mesh materials are often the preferred substrates 
for sides of buildings, enhancing the look of constructions sites and barricades present unique challenges. 
There are several requirements for a successful mural. The media must print well, withstand environmental 
elements for a substantial length of time, and adhere to various paints and textured surfaces. The media should 
have a compatible overlaminate to protect from increased dust and potential abrasion without causing edge curl. 
The combination of the products must be easy enough to install and have great adhesive holding power without 
the added cost of application tape.

These large visual images were displayed by Victory Park in Dallas, Texas to beautify this construction zone for the
downtown area. The images were printed by AJ Bart, Inc. in Texas, on Arlon’s DPF 4000 engineering grade print
film. Suitable for long-term outdoor use, DPF 4000 offers the best overall performance for graphics produced with
solvent based inkjet printers. The 3.8-mil engineered calendered film is specially formulated to accept high ink
coverage for vibrant colors and good image quality. Adding the printing features to the all-purpose, permanent
adhesive makes it the printer’s choice. DPF 4000 has a firmer handling characteristic for ease of installation, and
offers outdoor durability up to 7 years unprinted. To ensure greater durability for this longer-term application,
Arlon's 3420 overlaminate could be used to increase UV and abrasion resistance, as well as anti-graffiti protection.
Installed in May 2005, these life size graphics are anticipated to offer aesthetic value to the barricade building
materials.

Arlon manufactures a full line of Calon® pressure sensitive vinyl films for cut graphics, digital print films, and
SignTech® flexible substrate products. Specific products include high performance cast, translucent 2-mil cast,
calendered graphic vinyl films, specialty films, products for vehicle wraps, a range of engineering grade,
