AK Athletic Equipment large format digital printers use eco-friendly ink that is vibrant and long-lasting for indoor and outdoor wall pads. This technique has replaced the former technique of screen printing  - which limited color layers and detail of the logos. Our state of art digital printers eliminate the risk of hand-painted mistakes, smearing, and fading that can potentially arise from screen printing. Additionally, digital printers allow for quicker turnaround time while printing precious details in the graphics.

Depending upon the image, scaling a logo to size may only cover a few panels versus total wall coverage. To maintain a professional quality of wall pads, keeping a logo proportionate is critical. All of our customers will receive a proof/mock-up design of what your image will look like on the wall.
