The Roll-up Portables

Posted by Scott on 12 December 2012


Portable Roll-up systems are for more than just travel applications. These display signage systems are very versatile. Often they are used as an easy solution to get a decent sized banner to fit in a space with the least amount of hassle. The good news is we have a range of choices that are sure to suit every budget. We have put together these stands which we think are well built and aesthetically pleasing. Roll-up stands have the banner loaded under tension so it restracts into the base to protect it and for ease of transportation.

On The Mat

Posted by Scott on 30 October 2012


We now stock a range of bar/counter and floor mats. They come in a range of sizes which include choices of bordered or borderless designs. They are made from nitrile rubber with a knitted polyester surface (non-pilling). We sublimate high quality images of your choice. The finished prints are highly durable, designed for wet areas and can be washed without damaging the graphic.

The Inner Binding

Posted by Scott on 25 July 2012


Here are a few shots of this job we recently completed on the Central Library Peterborough window. It's by renowned New Zealand artist Richard Killeen, and is part of the Christchurch Art Gallery Outer Spaces programme. We printed the image on translucent vinyl so it will be enhanced by the light from within the library.

The Ultimate Lightbox

Posted by Scott on 24 July 2012

There are three common ways that backlit images are produced. Your expectation from your lightbox determines which method is best. We have the equipment and knowledge to produce all types of illuminated displays. Too many times I see illuminated signs that have been printed in a fashion not suitable for illumination, being the least ideal method. See the samples below that highlight the pro's and con's of each method.

Perfect Backlits

Posted by Scott on 31 January 2012


We now offer the absolute best in illuminated printing. Often backlits are let down by dull colours, washy blacks and shadows or colour casts (when an image looks slightly yellow or green etc) which ruin a great image. Up until now we've used in-house developed techniques to get great backlits with densities that don't wash out when the lights are on, but this was never completely reliable. We had a new addition late last year in the form of a spectrophotometer. The great thing about this new model is that it does transmissive readings.

Against The Clock

Posted by Scott on 16 June 2011


We hit the ground running with this one. The pressure was on to get this project completed on time. We had 3 days to turn it around. The job involved a lot of self adhesive vinyl, laminating, mounting, posters and some pretty big, double sided 3m x 3m banners and a couple of 15m x 2m. The team pulled together and we came through with the goods. A small hiccup saw a panel missed, but that was fixed by an early Saturday morning phone call and an emergency print completed and installed before opening time.

mFlag - Motion Flag range

Posted by Scott on 6 April 2011

mFlag Portable flag range   We've put together a great range of portable flag systems. We're on a mission to keep things simple and make your choices easy. Our new range of Motion Flags (mFlag) are completely interchangeable with their bases and mounts. This means you can own several models of flags and have a base for every occasion, ready to go. We dye-sublimate your flags onto high quality fabrics. All flag styles can be single or double sided. Double sided doesn't mean show through. A true double sided flag has an image reading correctly on both sides. We have the ability to print and sublimate both with or without paper. Using paper makes for detail, while going direct has outstanding show-through for single sided flags.

Wrap That Fence

Posted by Scott on 10 February 2011

Dye Sublimated Fabric Fence WrapYou've probably heard of vehicle wraps, but they're not the only sort of wrapping we do. Fence wrap is most suited for shows, events and festivals. The fences are required for crowd control or partitioning areas, providing the perfect advertising space waiting to be used. We produce fence wrap on a polyester 115gsm fabric. It's lightweight, giving it the seal of approval for easy transport and installation. We image onto it using the dye sublimation process up to 1850mm wide. This gives you super vibrant colours and a product that can be machine washed up to 60C and tumble dried to keep it in good order. The fabric has regular small holes (see pic below) which allow air to flow through, leaving your fence standing! It's lightweight, convenient and re-usable. Fence wrap is suitable for use both indoors and outdoors. The bottom fence wrap example is reinforced pvc mesh banner. This also has holes, is a heavy, and a more rugged surface.

A Day In The Sun

Posted by Scott on 29 October 2010

                     What a great day! We've endured a lot of aftershocks for nearly two months and this was a welcome break. It was a really good day as the sun shone, the bands played and the ground didn't move. The Band Together concert turned out around 140,000 people. New Zealand has some damn good musicians. Who would have thought The Exponents would be finishing a concert with Christchurch (in cashel street I wait) 25 years after it was recorded. For those who don't know what it was about... Band Together was a free concert for the people of Canterbury which featured some of New Zealand's top musicians. The purpose was to give Cantabrians a day to try to forget about their stress caused by the earthquake and chill out for a day.

Exposition Zing

Posted by Scott on 5 October 2010

                      Here are images from a project we produced for Strategy Design and Advertising. CPIT were an exhibitor at the Careers Expo 2010. These eye-catching murals are a part of the job that we produced. They pretty much speak for themselves.
