Hydro Dipping & Sign Making

My students need a variety of vinyl to continue their excitement and education in the sign industry. Also with the rapid growth in hydrographics the TSAUTOP Hydrographics Film will be a great addition to the program.

My Students

Students at the KHS graphics program are really excited to learn more about Hydro dipping. Using the materials that I’m requesting hydro dipping film and chemicals, the students will gain a better knowledge and understanding of how to apply one of the more up-and-coming printing methods out there. Also, vinyl sticker and sign applications are becoming more and more popular in the advertising in the street so the weeding tools and vinyl material will help the students gain a better understanding of the signage industry.

My students range from freshmen to seniors, and from the top of the class to the verge of not graduating.

Our school is growing every year, we are very strong in academics and athletics, with many other activities to offer students from all walks of life.

My Project

A large majority of my students have shown an interest in more complex printing methods such as hydro dipping. With the hydro dipping transfer films and activator, the students will have the opportunity to hydro dip many different substrates. Also using the tape and tools to streamline weeding and application process. Other students have expressed interest in different shades of vinyl will appeal to a wide variety of students.

The donations will increase the variety of project choices the students will have.

This will increase their excitement level in wanting to take on new, more complex projects. With the hydro dipping and heat transfer, some of my students are looking into the graphics industry. This will help them be prepared for any future they have in graphics.
