Text On The Vertical

Text on the Vertical

Which way should text go when running vertically for signage? Downward some would say, that's how many books do it; upward others would say, that's how our eyes naturally track; stacked would also be suggested. Which one should you follow? Well you be the judge because in fact, its is really down to personal opinion and what pleases your eyes.

To Cover... Or Not?

Cover or not

Picture this... You've got an awesome design on your company vehicle, and then you find out to your shock the car is not legal when you get your next WOF. Vehicle types MA, MB, MC and NA means a lot when it comes to vehicle graphics. Many passenger cars will not meet WOF regulations with decals on windows. We've done our share of research and question asking to highlight some passenger vehicle basics of what you need to know about what you plan to cover.

Have a normal day by taking full advantage of our Holden Equinox courtesy vehicle which is all yours for the time it takes to signwrite your wheels, subject to availability and T&C's.

Judging Books By Covers

Posted on July 17, 2019 at 3:36 PM

IMG Judging 1

We all know the classic line aye... "Don't judge a book by its cover" - but like it or not, we make judgements every day. We prejudge the worth or value of something by its outward appearance alone, whether it be people, cars, food, shops, signage or business brands. Some of us care more than others about who and what we are choosing, but we all make decisions on these judgements based on what we have seen.

Adgraphix turns twenty

20 Years Title

2019 is our twentieth year. Actually, March to be precise but we can't pinpoint the day - it's all a blur. One thing for sure is in a lot of ways things now still have a lot of simularities to 1999. We started out with a printer that had just been released, and still today we have a printer that's just been released. We love innovating, and providing Christchurch and New Zealand with the very latest options available. It's cool to have been part of some really creative uses of the technology we invest in (22 printing machines for the 20 years to be precise).
