Intelligence and innovation key to strong export market

Developing Decals for specific environments, functions and security requirements

Tom Heath, Technical Director at EBI, explained that although decals are almost everywhere we look, they are often more complex than you might first imagine. The EBI process has several technical design elements, in addition to the obvious graphic look of the finished product. Because exporting decals to almost anywhere in the world means the environmental impact on the decal must be a part of the initial development process. The technical process could be ensuring the adhesive and substrate can perform in extreme temperatures or high UV conditions. Does the decal need to glow in the dark or have some other functional consideration factored into the life expectancy required. The security is another aspect of the decals function. Are high levels of anti-counterfeit measures needed' Are there any other functional security requirements like numbering, colour coding or digital coding' The complexity of a decal development can be extensive before it ever reaches the graphic design stage.
