We like to think were a pretty chilled out lot, and capable of performing well under pressure. Some might say we've got an inner printing, signage and display peace??? Okay we'll make the link to Yoga and meditation here. Our good friends at Christchurch International Airport had a wee project to turn a corner of the international departure lounge into a stretch and relax flight preparation zone. With legs crossed and our thinking hats on we came up with solutions to see the concept come to life. Absolute beginners to seasoned professionals will feel right at home in this fantastic space for yoga, pilates or meditation.

As New Zealand's leading printer of fence wrap, what an ideal project it was to produce these artworks for displaying in the community. The designs were produced by the very creative students from two schools in The East Frame, a project being run by Ōtākaro as part of the recovery plan. Read more to see what it is all about.
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.
Salmond Reed Architects Ltd approached us with an idea inspired by many European heritage sites to produce printed scrim as a photograph to cover the iconic Otago University Clock Tower, so that much needed stone conservation could continue behind on the scaffold, rather than dismantling the scaffold at great cost to the University for the mid-May Graduands’ Ceremony.
How many times have you found yourself standing in a lift staring at boring doors in front of you while heading to your level? Well, things have changed; There is every reason to now turn and face that wall, roof or door closest to you. It would be fair to feel sorry for the person in the middle, and don't forget to hop off when the doors open.
Every now and then a really exciting and challenging project comes your way. T&R Interior Systems approached us with a request to print ceiling tiles for the new Jucy Snooze, Christchurch. The desired outcome was a sky image spanning the entire ceiling. That's a big ask for enlarging a photograph, so we produced a custom image from scratch digitally. 480 Sqm of ceiling tiles later - what an amazing space.
St Andrews College came to us to produce large wall murals for their Museum space. We've got a long history producing this type of work and it was a breeze working with them to come up with the right solution to make it look fantastic.
We love doing murals, so when we were approached to reproduce artworks designed by Christchurch school kids, naturally we wanted to be part of the production. It would be fair to say murals are one of our specialties and outdoor murals are a bit rarer than their more common indoor counterparts. Keeping in mind we were dealing with exposure to mother nature we came up with the right product for the job and our attention to detail saw the project turn out a stunner.
Why produce a project with welds when you don't need to? When it comes to the really big stuff, most of the production in New Zealand is output on 3.2m capable machines. That means a lot of tiles and welds for a good number of applications. Welds are acceptable for the a lot of grand format applications, but for some you just don't want those joins if you can help it. Using our tried and true HP Scitex 5m grand format printer, we output onto 5m wide rolls of PVC banner, mesh and fabrics. This printer has been instrumental at bringing to life massive prints that are outside the abilities of the 3.2m printers, or for multi tile projects where it has reduced the number of welds required.
