Sunbrella Graphics System

Transform Your Creative Vision into Shade Structures with Custom

The Sunbrella Graphics System (SGS) allows you to create custom graphics and logos like never before, enabling you to create great commercial awnings. For businesses that need to make a statement that goes beyond style, SGS combines the beauty and performance of Sunbrella with the ingenuity of 3M products, making it perfect for custom awnings, signs, marine tops and covers, and other shading applications.

Developed and field-tested by awning and sign professionals, this versatile system allows you to translate your custom logo designs and multicolor graphics quickly with no minimum fabric requirement. A simple, easy-to-learn system, SGS is versatile enough for just about any application from commerical awnings and storefront awnings to umbrellas and marine tops and covers.

How it works

The SGS II Graphics Machine, available through Glen Raven, features a larger 5.25' x 10' work space and uses a vacuum system and heat source to bond the Sunbrella fabric and the film.

First, Sunbrella fabrics are placed inside the unit on a flat surface. The film is then positioned on top of the fabric. After the top of the unit is secured, the vacuum system pulls the fabric and film tightly together while heat lamps bond them together. The automated controls eliminate guesswork and assure high-quality, consistent results every time.

Shade products using the Sunbrella Graphics System can be found through select shade fabricators.
