Another Dimension

Posted by Scott on 11 July 2011


There are so many ways to showcase your logo or design. This is an example of building signage produced using dimensional elements. You create a whole host of effects that two dimensional signage cannot show, such as highlighting and soft shadows created by the sun and/or artificial lighting. Digital profile cutting can be achieved in many ways. Laser cutting, routering and hot-knifing to name a few. We produce many dimensional products in-house. The installation of our Esko Kongsberg digital cutter has opened the door to a world of 3D products. These include letters and elements cut from thick plastics, to thick corrugated cards which can be assembled into shelves and boxes for promotional use.

Big, Bright And Can't Be Missed

Posted by Scott on 15 June 2011


We'll let the pictures do the talking on this one. Big wall, big mural. When Piko Wholefoods had their badly damaged Barbadoes street premises red stickered, they needed to find a new home. You'd be hard pushed to find a person who couldn't find them here. We printed this artwork a few years back for their old premises, but this version is simply stunning. It's printed with latex ink on self adhesive vinyl, laminated with gloss anti-grafitti film and mounted to aluminium composite panels. We also did the front fascia, street pole sign and lightbox.

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.

Signs and Installation

Posted by Scott on 4 April 2011

Sign department                         This is our new, modern and freshly launched Sign Department. We have leased a premises, conveniently located directly across the road to our current location (back door). The only thing to make it better would be an airbridge! With our roots in signwriting and screenprinting, Adgraphix was destined to have a strong presence in the signage and display markets from day dot. By keeping as much production in-house as possible, we have greater control of timeframes, quality and deadlines. It's a full service department offering all forms of signwriting both traditional and modern. Traditional? Yes we even do brushwork and the old school stuff! Throw in all the extras from one of the best equipped large format digital printing facilities in New Zealand, and it's a damn exciting mix. When we say offer all forms, we mean project management, building signs, windows and glass work, illuminated signs, plinths, fascias, information signs, vehicle graphics, handwritten signs, murals, vehicle graphics, event signage, displays, 3D signs, flags and specialty graphics.

Talk the Talk - Walk the Walk

Posted by Scott on 25 February 2010

                         We have been printing interpretation graphics since the early 2000's. Over time we have gained a lot of knowledge about what works and what doesn't. We have a huge arsenal of products for all sorts of applications, indoors and outdoors. These images are examples of signage that has been out in the weather and attracting attention of vandals. The first image is a north facing sign that has been in place for just over 5 years. It's got a few war wounds in the form of light scratches but the printed image is holding up exceptionally well and is a good example of the durability of our printing.
