When the orientation of your sign relative to the media does not matter, we will print the sign in the orientation that minimizes waste. If your sign is made of Coroplast and you wish to control the direction of the flutes, choose the Vertical Flutes or Horizontal Flutes finishing options.


Your sign will be printed with the flutes running vertically ("Flutes Up").




Your sign will be printed with the flutes running horizontally.
