First Graphics Services offers some of the most cutting edge technology and innovations to ensure that your projects are crisp, eye grabbing, and even eco-friendly! Flatbed printing has become popular in the print industry as a preferable substitute for screen-printing. Since no printing plates or screens must be produced, digital printing technology allows shorter runs of signs to be produced economically. Environmentally, flatbed printing is a more sustainable system than its predecessor of solvent printing as it produces fewer waste cartridges and less indoor air pollution.
Our printing equipment doesn’t just stop there… ranging from flatbed printers, eco-solvent printers, latex printers, and so much more – we have the solution for your printing needs. Small signs, large signs, banners, decals, wall murals, cut vinyl, vehicle wraps… the opportunities are endless! One of the things that sets First Graphic Services apart from other print sources in the Dallas Ft Worth area is that we stock large quantities of material at our facility to ensure a faster than expected turn around. We take pride in the quality of our products, so you can rest easy knowing that your project is in good hands.

Color matching can be a headache for anyone creating art for print. For many, it is difficult to understand why the color their computer screen isn’t the same color that printed on their project.
Computers and the print world treat colors in different ways. RGB (Red, Green, & Blue) is the color model used by computer screens. However, CMYK is the color model used by the print industry due to the mixture of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black ink to create printed colors.
Now, you can see CMYK colors on a computer screen and you can even print RGB colors. The difference is how the light is reflected. Computer screens have a light shining behind them, while printed graphics have light reflecting off of their surfaces. This impacts how colors appear to the eye.
Regardless of all the technical reasons for CMYK and RGB color differences, it is important to understand how these differences effect your projects. The bright red color you select on your screen for a particular element may look completely different when printed.
At First Graphic Services, we use the Pantone Color Matching system – which is a largely standardized color reproduction system used in a variety of industries, primarily printing, though sometimes in the manufacture of colored paint, fabric, and plastics. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all refer to the Pantone system to make sure colors match.
If you have a project that needs special color attention, please let your sales representative know and we will have one of our color matching experts work with you to make sure the colors in your project are exactly where they need to be.
There is no other cost-effective advertising or customization/personalization method available than wraps. Unlike traditional media such as radio, television, billboard, or other print advertisement – a vehicle wrap is a one-time advertising expense that works for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A study by 3M showed that you would have to spend over $130,000 on television ads to generate equivalent annual impressions of a $3,500 wrap! Wow!
Vehicle wraps can also personalize your vehicle more effectively than any other method and has unique benefits over custom painting. Many artistic and photographic elements cannot be captured by a custom paint job. For instance, some colors (such as chrome) and textures (such as brushed metal and carbon fiber) are extremely expensive if not impossible to create with paint. As an added benefit, wraps can be removed or repaired easily without much expense. In fact, wrap material has been used to “protect” the original paint underneath.
We specialize in routed logos, custom framed artwork, posters, and more for your business interior. Contact a sales representative today to see how we can transform your space.
