Like many of you, I started my sign business out of my basement in the early nineties. During the first year I did most of the production myself, so I needed to be as efficient as possible. I realized that a lot of my time was being wasted on switching out rolls of vinyl transfer tape when I was masking graphics, not to mention the difficulties that I had to overcome in order to get the mask onto the vinyl graphics by myself. An extra set of hands or some kind of apparatus to help out would have been nice, but there just wasn’t really anything in my sign making supply catalogs that were quite what I was looking for. I wanted something portable that I could move from one work table to another. I needed to be able to mask graphics that were longer than my tables in some cases. I needed something more portable, time-saving, cost-efficient and versatile than anything I could find.
So I created this transfer tape dispenser line of products. Many prototypes were created until I finally felt like I had the perfect design that would meet my exact needs. I began the process to obtain a US patent on my creation that was granted. We have manufactured and sold over 1,500 units and I firmly believe that it is the most efficient device available today to apply transfer tape to vinyl graphics.
You will also save money because it cuts down the need to unroll an excess amount of transfer tape to cover the graphics. It also saves on labor since it holds the tape above your vinyl graphics for you as you smooth it onto them and is easily used by one person.
