First Impressions
An attractive and thoughtful window display will not only make your
goods and services stand out, but your organization as well. Window
displays can create buzz, inspire and improve sales by simply framing
your product in the right light. We work closely with our clients’ design
teams to create incredibly stunning and interesting window displays
that draw the eye and achieve results. We also have a team of award
winning designers who work with our clients to create mind blowing
displays that will leave customers in awe.
Cut Vinyl
We offer cut vinyl in stock colors (see sales rep for swatches) and
printed custom colors and designs. Cut vinyl is a versatile tool that can
be a very cost effective option.
Install and Mock-ups
A photo can sometimes communicate better
then words. With a proper site survey from
a Dr. Graphx crew member, we can provide
accurate photo mock-ups so the printing and
installation process go without a hitch.
Have printed graphics and don’t know how to
install them? We can help with that too.

The i-cut
The i-cut opens up a world of options for custom signs and boxes.
Digital die-cutting is an inexpensive way to get precise custom cuts
with a small setup fee rather then creating an expensive physical
die. The table top cutter has an optical reader to cut, score, and/or
route your signs. You can supply us with a vector die file, or we can
create one for you. We can cut or route many matierals up to 1” thick,
including the ones listed on the left. To check for other options, please
contact your rep at their information above.
Box Prototypes
The way to really test your packaging design is to create a physical
copy. We have options for printing and constructing box comps small
or large in presnetation ready quality, or for a first draft. Our print direct
to substrate option gives us the ability to print 4/color direct to
your box material. We also have a range of materials for high
resolution printing with a variety of laminate finishing options to give
your project a great finished look. The i-cut allows for one-off or small
run jobs. If you need something done in large quanitites, we can help
you there too, just ask.
Not sure how to get started? If you don’t already have a box die, we
can create a custom box die tailored to fit your product and finished
substrate, from scratch.

provide window black outs to keep interior renovations or empty units
out of the public eye to maintain a professional looking work space.

We create custom signs to fit the architectural style of the inside and
outside of your building. We can also create signs for your ADA needs

These are our stock vinyl colors. If you need a swatch, please just let us know. We can also custom print colors
and patterns for cut vinyl application.
Cut vinyl is commonly applied to plexi, glass and painted drywall. It can
be installed by clients with experience, although if you’re unfamiliar
with it we recommend having one of our experienced installers do it for
you.
Like digital die-cutting, we require a vector file for cut vinyl. If you can’t
provide us with the correct file, one our on-staff designers can produce
one for you.
Dusted Crystal (Etched Glass)
Dusted crystal vinyl is used for an etched glass look. It can be applied
in full sheets to cover large areas and can be die-cut to custom shapes
and patterns just like our other stock vinyl materials.
Dusted crystal vinyl can open up a lot of creative avenues using
negative space cutouts, printing direct to the material, and layering it
on different sides of the glass for unique effects.
We do not recommend the application of dusted crystal by clients.

Video Web Advertising
Video Web Advertising online doesn’t have to be a budget breaking
expense. More and more users are spending time on social media and
watching entertainment online. It’s time to focus your efforts where they
will really count.
Dr. Graphx Digital focuses on offering packages that are affordable,
and creating videos that are engaging and fun to watch. We’ll help you
get started in channeling your videos to the right audience online with a
video that will keep their attention.
Introduce Your Business with Video
Many successful businesses put a video with an introduction to their
business on the home page of their website. This instantly boosts your
search results and it’s important to engage your audience right from
the start. Don’t lose a sale by letting your visitors get distracted or lost.
Show them what’s different about your company.
Event Coverage
Have a great event coming up? Want to capture your efforts without
having to do a whole other project just to summarize with a few photos
and blocks of text? Do it with video. Video is more engaging, can
capture more of the essence of your efforts and more of a keepsake.
Let Dr. Graphx print your displays and then have us attend the event to
capture it on video. We’ll create a compelling reel that suits the project.
