The Link Transit bus is a new transportation system that hit the streets of Alamance County early this June. With routes reaching as far east as Alamance Community College, and as far west as Gibsonville, the Link Transit is providing rides for people all over town for both work and leisure.

The Decal Source is proud to have designed, printed and installed the bus wraps. Burlington Transit Authority opted for a premium vinyl material, 3M IJ180CV3 with a UV laminate 3M 8519.  This material combination provides a lasting product that can stand up against harsh weather and UV exposure.Since our installation team is 3M certified we can honor the full graphic warranty provided by 3M.  Our entire team pitched in to make this happen had a blast doing it.  This transportation system will improve the mobility for many residents in our community and we are proud to be a part of it.

The Decal Source is Certified for Aircraft Decals

The Decal Source opened its doors in 1998.  Since then we have been a wrap and decal machine.  From Helicopter decal stripes to company logos on jet planes, we have you covered.  We recently finished a project for Swift Air, a premier aircraft transportation company. With one of their hangers located at Piedmont Triad International airport, you could say they are in our backyard.

Installing Aircraft Decals or Wraps Requires Special Training and Certifications

Just not anybody can print or install decals on planes or helicopters.  It requires a specialized training and certification from the material manufactures.  3M, a major player in the vinyl graphics sector, has two exterior aircraft graphic films. A7322 for short term use and A7706 for medium term use.  Both materials require a special printing & finishing process to meet the manufacture specifications. 3M must verify you meet the specification before they will even sell you the material.  Once the material is installed it must be edge sealed with 3M Edge Sealer 3950.  The film must be edge sealed to protect it from serious in-flight abrasion such as a jet going 500+ MPH.

Our installation crew is 3M certified and meets all the requirements to properly install aircraft graphics and decals.  Call on TDS when you need aviation specific decals or wraps.  If its just FAA registration ID numbers or full corporate identity and branding, The Decal Source has you covered. Contact us for more information.

PTI is Booming with Aviation

PTI is quickly becoming an aviation hot spot with Honda Jet delivering its first plane this month and Haeco, an aircraft engineering and maintenance company, creating many new jobs.  Its not uncommon to see large military C-17’s or Air Force One doing touch and goes.  Among large multinational companies, there are also small local businesses getting in on the action.  Perfect Aircraft, an airplane detailing and reconditioning company, is one of the new startups adding to PTI’s growth.
