Posted by Jeff on 25 August 2016

 IMG STAC 5St 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.

IMG Poster Sign Just Base4The Poster Footpath Sign is perfect for when you want to change your messages regularly. Unlike a standard sign which requires a blade change, this model has a clever system that sandwiches a paper poster between a pair of clear acrylic sheets.

Router Cut Install

Posted by Jono on 8 July 2015

IMG Routered 8Here's a feature I've put together to illustrate what's involved when we install a routered logo onto an internal wall. There are many ways to produce dimensional logos for applications like this. For this example we have used painted 10mm acrylic, which provides a really smart finish. See the steps below.

IMG Footy1Check out this case study for Canterbury Rugby Football Union. The work was completed at AMI Stadium - the home of the Crusaders.

Old Style Signs

Posted by Scott on 27 November 2012


I've got a few pictures of some old school looking signage we completed. It's common these days to create brushed or old looking signage in Photoshop then digitally print it to a substrate. It's an effective way of creating the look but sometimes you just can't go past handwriting it with paint. It's how it was all done a few decades back, before computer technology took over. Anyhow, these photo's show some authentic handwritten signage. We do this type of work in-house; these were completed by Jono our sign manager. If you've got a project involving classic brushwork done then make sure you give us a call.

El Tradicional!

Posted by Scott on 1 March 2012


We are at the cutting edge of sign and print technology but that doesn't stop us from keeping to our roots; there's still a place for the trusty brush.  All the digital technology has it's place, but there isn't an alternative to traditional brushed signage, particularly for exterior building signage. Size isn't a problem, actually most the work we do is large renderings of company logos. Have a look at the samples below which walk you through the process of getting logo element painted onto a concrete wall.

Sign That Igloo

Posted by Scott on 16 September 2011


We took on the challenge to put large graphics onto this flexible dome and it couldn't have worked out better. The installation God's were looking over us as we had some fantastic Christchurch weather during the install. The self adhesive graphics (big stickers) were sectioned off into a jigsaw type arrangement as the tallest figure was 5m high and far too big to manage in one piece from a cherry-picker. As it turned out we're not too bad at jigsaws cause all the arms heads and legs ended up in the right spot! Dressing up Hagley Park incorporated a range of signage including, banners, flags sign panels and mesh speaker covers. This project came together brilliantly and wer'e pretty stoked with the end result.
