Both the materials are printed flexographically with lightfast inks that minimize sunlight’s effect, preventing the color from fading or changing over time.
While removable placards are flexible and can be applied even on a curved surface, tagboard placards are ideal for flat surfaces only. The perfect application temperature for removable placards is between 40°F and 80°F. Both the materials are designed for single-trip/temporary applications.
If we talk about flip placards, both our Flip-n-Lock™ Placards as well as DigiLock™ Placards feature a drainage channel in the base, unlike the ones commonly found with competitors.
