Some things to consider is the kind of graphics to be utilized. Vinyl cut is often the cheapest, we use our stock color of vinyl and cut out of it any text or shapes / images designed into the proof. usually 1-3 colors are used. When more colors, or complex graphics or photos are used, it is usually best we print. With printing, there is no limitation to color or graphics. For additional protection and longevity we may laminate the printed graphics. This will protect the image from UV damage, fading from the sun and abrasions. Perhaps the sandwich board is stored in the back of a pick up bouncing around with other tools and such. Lamination is a clear layer of vinyl that is applied over top of the printed graphics. For most applications, lamination is not required, as the printed graphics themselves seems to be suficient and durable for uses.
