    I have been using signs365 for direct print and contour cut Jbond for years. Due to the virus they are not offering this service.

    Can you suggest any similar vendors?

    Thank you

    No one else I know (in regards to online wholesale) does contour cut ACM. 4over might, but they've shutdown two locations and I don't think the other ones offer that.

    Actually, I think SignWorld America does it.

    Yeah, sorry, forgot about y'all. Would highly recommend FireSprint! BTW since you're here. If you make 18in x 24in ACM signs are they full 18x24 or are they more like 17x23?

    We cut ACM from oversized sheets, so they are fully 18x24" when we're done. Others will cut from 4x8ft sheets, so when you take out the width of the router bit, you're left with an undersized sign.

    We do everything we can to maintain the exact size you order from our website (You can put in fractional size on many products).

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having it outsourced?

    You could also make your own socks if you want to.

    yes but depending on where you are in the US shipping can make or break you. i personally cut the ACM myself and then outsource the print.

    We have clients that do either. Mass printing on sticker for them to mount or we'll router the prints down. Shipping can be costly due to the weight...esp ACM Panels.

    I would say quote it and run the numbers. We sell ALOT of ACM. Skids and skids of it. All of it shipped. You can get a shipping quote with 3 clicks on our website.
