Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0012301A1] A flexible outdoor sign (10) being comprised of a flexible substrate layer (18) and a flexible reflective layer (16), wherein the sign (10) is of a grand format dimension, that is, greater than 48 inches wide, and further being most applicable to outdoor billboards, truck curtains, and other large outdoor venues. Due to its flexible nature, this sign (10) can be rolled up and transported easily, as it does not depend on heavy plywood backing to support it. Upon being delivered, the sign (10) can be unrolled and winched around a billboard, for example. The sign (10) is then anchored with trucking straps, or the like. This invention is also a flexible sign material made into grand format dimensions, as well as a method for making this material.
