As a dedicated team, we are constantly researching the latest printing and graphic technologies to remain at the forefront of our industry. Our mission is to deliver the best possible solutions to our clients, which is why we consistently seek to upgrade our manufacturing processes and expand our product offerings. By introducing new products to our catalog, we can provide our clients with the latest and most innovative solutions available in the market. Our commitment to research and development ensures that we maintain our competitive edge and continue to deliver exceptional results to our clients.


And that is why Star Shield Solutions attended ISA International Sign Expo 2023 in Las Vegas. ISA International Sign Expo is a trade show and conference focused on the sign, graphics, and visual communications industry. It is organized by the International Sign Association (ISA), a non-profit organization that represents manufacturers, suppliers, and users of on-premises signs and sign products.

The event provides a platform for exhibitors to showcase the latest products, services, and technologies in the industry, and for attendees to learn about new trends and best practices. It also features educational sessions, networking opportunities, and keynote speakers

As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver the best possible products and services to our valued customers, the Star Shield Solutions production team has exciting plans in the pipeline. In the coming months, we will be investing in new machinery to expand our manufacturing capabilities and enhance our product offerings. With this investment, we aim to bring our customers an even wider range of solutions while delivering even faster turnaround times. At Star Shield Solutions, we understand that our customers’ needs are constantly evolving, which is why we are always looking for ways to improve and grow. Our investment in new machinery is one of the many ways we strive to meet our customer’s needs and exceed their expectations.

Our team also made their way over to the 3M booth, where they were showcasing their latest print wrap film: the IIJ280.

The IJ280 features:

  • Pressure-activated adhesive for easy sliding, tacking, snap-up, and repositioning
  • ComplyTM v4 adhesive with air-release channels for fast, easy, bubble-free installations
  • Excellent hiding power
  • Flexible; conformable with less heat (especially when paired with 3MTM Gloss Wrap Overlaminate 8428G)
  • Superior conformability with heat for applications on recesses and deep channels
  • Removable with heat from most surfaces within the Warranty Period
  • Expected Performance Life of 10 years

The IJ280 is best used for:

  • Wraps for vehicles, straight trucks, semi-trucks and semi-trailers; emblems or striping
  • Watercraft graphics (above the static water line only)
  • Non-vertical and horizontal vehicle wraps (when protected with specified 3MTM overlaminates)
  • Bus and transit graphics

We greatly value our partnership with the 3M team and always enjoy the opportunity to connect with them. At Star Shield Solutions, we recognize the importance of strong relationships with our partners, and we are grateful to have 3M as a trusted and valued ally in our mission to deliver exceptional products and services to our customers.
