Kelly Signs installs a Kongsberg i-XP24
OTTAWA—Kelly Signs has added a Kongsberg i-XP24 digital finishing table to its full-service sign shop. In operation since 1947, Kelly Signs creates real estate, construction and pylon signs, trade show displays, banners, vehicle graphics and more.  The new addition will enable the shop to cut materials in-house, instead of outsourcing the service.



General manager Mark Steinberg said the shop had been planning on investing in a digital finishing table in order to cut difficult materials and different shapes, and the new table has done that, in addition to helping grow the business.

Contour cuts that used to take 45 minutes now take 45 seconds. “I knew it was fast, but I did not really understand how fast until I really saw it cutting. Often, someone on the floor will tell us to stop by quickly to see how well the machine works on a particular job. Many times, when we get to the machine, they say, ‘Sorry, you're too late!’”

Kelly’s Signs also operates two silkscreen presses and two digital flatbed inkjet printers, along with a roll-fed digital printer.
