Once upon a time, transit ads were screenprinted in one, two, three or even four colors on self-adhesive vinyl or busboards. The makeready process was time-consuming and expensive. This was the most cost-effective way for producing large runs (50 or more) of one full color image, or for 30 or more single color images.

We have been printing full color "digital screenprint" bus decals on Flexcon Busmark material since 2001, having pioneered the process in Santa Barbara. This is an eight color direct solvent printing process, using process colors to make up the various colors on an image. Turnaround time is measured in days, not weeks, and the process is very cost-effective, even for small production runs or larger jobs with a variety of images.
We are an approved vendor for Santa Barbara MTD transit ad production. Although Busmark is fade-resistant for well over one year (the Flexcon-recommended install life for Busmark ads), we recommend liquid lamination to protect ads from abrasion, especially if they will be on a bus for over 60 days.
