What is Sintra Printing
Sintra printing is an essential display option using a high-quality PVC Sintra board.
This type of PVC or polyvinyl chloride is a long-lasting plastic material meant to withstand the test of time. Sintra board is made in the USA and fabricated to be used outdoors while retaining its high-quality appearance. Its satin finish ensures that it resists denting and scratching so you can be sure Sintra signage gets your message across beautifully and clearly. Plus, the Sintra board is tough enough to handle extreme weather and temperatures.
The lightweight construct and high durability of Sintra board make this material highly versatile and easy to manage. Entirely customizable, our Sintra printing options include photo-rich images or any other design of your choice. Plus it is able to be cut into any shape you desire and even formed into unique 3-D designs.
(Sometimes you might see it also spelled sentra or cintra.)
Top Benefits of Sintra Printing
Signs are everywhere we go, in malls, and along sidewalks, we find a plethora of signage sharing information with us. Choosing the right material for your sign will help you get the most of it. When it comes to Sintra printing, this printing option uses material that is beneficial because it offers long-lasting, highly versatile, and durable signage at an affordable price.
Sintra board is long-lasting thanks to supreme construction empowering it to resist scratching and dents. It is able to maintain high color quality and appearance even in high temperatures and through inclement weather. Plus, this particular PVC material is the whitest in terms of color quality.
One unique benefit of this type of PVC is that it is thermoplastic, so using heat we can bend it into any shape you desire.

Lifespan of Sintra Prints
Sintra printed boards are made of high-quality PVC and have an exceptional lifespan.
Generally, if you use the boards outside the wear and tear will impact their longevity. Plus, extreme conditions such as high temperatures and other inclement weather will affect how long they last. You can expect them to last a few years and retain their quality.
When used primarily indoors under controlled conditions, the boards can easily last more than 10 years.

Properly cleaning and caring for your Sintra board will improve the longevity of your prints.
You can simply wipe it clean with a mild cleaner or soap mixed with warm water. Isopropyl alcohol can be used to remove any grease or oil build-up. Generally, cleaning supplies used for standard hospital cleaning are approved for use on Sintra board.

Betty Key, PaveWest –
PaveWest contracted with Coastal Creative to provide a sign and about 60 prints for the walls in our new office. Working with the crew there we were able design a sign for our lobby much nicer than we had originally designed ourselves. We are very happy with the prints. They were able to take pictures I didn’t think we would be able to enlarge, blow them up and maintain the quality. A couple are 6’ by 4’. Everyone I worked with at Coastal Creative was responsive to us, and their prices were the best I could find. Thanks, guys! We appreciate all your help
