Splash Back Magic

Posted by Stacey on 14 August 2017

Here we feature some projects we have worked on with AJ Creative Glass. Over the years they have perfected a system that produces a very robust product. Combining their wealth of knowledge and experience, with our quality printing and attention to detail, every image is presented beautifully behind the clean polished glass. There literally is no limitation on what image you can use, it's all up to your imagination.

Go on - win that bike

Posted by Jo on 4 May 2016

FC winabike 1When Progressive Enterprises came to us with an idea that needed a solution - we were all over it. We got some of our creative minds together to come up with point of sale material for their Win A Bike promotion. Progressive wanted not just the bikes on show but a bit of personality to boot. Using the branding for the promotion we came up with life-size cutouts that would straddle the bikes in-store.

This is a cool project we completed recently. Next time you're headed to, or through Reefton, shoot into the visitor centre and learn a bit about this part of the country. Jeff and Jono travelled over for a few days to put this display work together. Check out the pictures below.

Impressive 360

Posted by Scott on 21 November 2011


Our latest piece of kit has arrived. This is an Oce Arizona 360 GT mid-range flatbed printer, just recently released. It is a great addition and fills the need we had for very high detail direct to substrate printer. The resolution and sharpness of the images that come of this printer is truly fantastic. The 360 also has a white printing system where the white is printed in-line as opposed to our old system which printed white as a separate print to the colour content. What that means is we can print white 'as needed' and printing is faster. We'll get busy building profiles to make sure the colour output is on the mark and images have excellent contrast and shadow detail.

Keeping The Grain

Posted by Scott on 2 June 2011


Here is a great printing job we supplied for the Nando's Riccarton restaurant, which demonstrates printing directly to timber. The concept was to allow the grain of the wood to show through and become part of the graphic. This is a fantastic example of the strength of direct printing, and also using printing with white ink. The window graphic is a clear adhesive film. We used white ink , but not as a flood fill because we wanted a degree of transparency for the colours.

Glorious White Ink

Posted by Scott on 13 July 2010

                     Have you thought about how you could benefit from white ink? Digital has changed the way we think about print. Short runs are so common now because digital has made them affordable. But digital has always had its limitation, you couldn't print white. This has meant all materials printed have to start off as white to get vivid colours. This is not the case now, white ink has changed everything. We've been successfully printing white ink for over 2 years now, so we know its value.

Printing With Glass

Posted by Scott on 25 March 2010

                             If you've ever wondered how well direct printing works on glass, then this is your answer. We have a special process that we use for glass printing that is pretty damn good. One of the issues with printing on glass has been mild adhesion. We have overcome this problem and offer a product which has a higher level of adhesion. See the scratch resistance test photo below. Using a coin and medium pressure there is no noticeable effect on the print. Even under heavy pressure it puts up a very good fight.

The New Look - House of G

Posted by Scott on 24 March 2010

              Glassons have recently opened their new look fashion playgrounds in Palmerston North and at Riccarton, Christchurch. It's a whole new look for Glassons stores and they are awesome. Yeah, we are biased, but we are stoked with our input into this new concept. We have worked closely with Glassons for many years producing their visual merchandising. Here are some of the visuals we created for the project. There is a mix of all sorts of printing techniques and technology used in the production of them.

Cut To Shape Printing

Posted by Scott on 19 January 2010

Your graphics don't have to be finished in square or rectangular shapes to be cost effective. Using laser, router and flatbed cutting technology we can supply your graphics in pretty much any shape and form. Our flatbed printer prints your image directly to the substrate which is cut to shape.
