IN THE ROUGH 2018

Really pleased to be involved with this years, In the Rough, the events industry golf day 2018, organised by ESSA. This years event was held at the Celtic Manor Resort on the famous Ryder Cup TwentyTen course, with 124 industry professionals from the supplier, organiser and venue community battling it out for the winners cup.

Not only did we enter a team for the golf day, but we were also a tee sponsor and sponsored the very popular 13th Hole - A short par 3 over water!

Even though the golf wasn't up to much, we were delighted to be involved in the event and met some lovely people from the industry. We look forward to getting involved next year!

Slice Coffee Shop Opens its Doors

Very pleased to be part of the design, print and installation for this new coffee shop in Cardiff.

With the business being a brand new start up, the project required everything from design through to print and installation. Working closely with the client we were able to come up with a brand and concept, that we felt worked and tied in with the look and feel they wanted to achieve.

Overall the results were superb and the client was very happy.

new rigid material guide

This week has seen the launch of our new rigid material guide. Having invested in the latest wide and grand format technologies including the brand new high-speed UV-LED flatbed, the timing of this guide couldn't be better.

The samples in the guide include Foam PVC, Aluminium Composite, Acrylic, Hoarding Panel, Foam Board, Fluted Board, Smart-X and Honeycomb Board. All of the samples have been printed on our EFI Vutek LX3 Pro high-speed flatbed (8 colours + white ink) which is capable of speeds of up to 320 sqm/hour.

We hope the guide will be a useful tool for both customers and ourselves.

ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL HOARDING PROJECT COMPLETE

Using a 3mm hoarding panel with exceptional strength and rigidity to weight ratio, laminated with a high gloss laminate, you can see the results look great.

Most construction sites require hoarding print and we’ve really noticed an increase in branded graphic panels around building and construction sites. Adding graphics to a hoarding design is an effective way of giving your company a more professional image but also is a great advert for everyone who passes by your site. We have a range of short term, mid term and long term medias suitable for this application, including UV and Anti-graffiti films for added durability and protection.

OTTIMO...NOW EVEN WIDER!

We are delighted to announce our purchase of an EFI Quantum LXr 5 UV LED 5 Metre Wide Roll Fed Printer.

This is our largest investment to date and we are proud to be the first company in the UK to purchase this machine and become one of the few providers of 5m wide print in the UK.

The Quantum arrives with us next month and offers excellent quality print at 100 sq metres per hour typically, to a wide range of roll fed substrates.

In addition to this, the Quantum is the only 5m wide machine to offer full in-line cutting which will speed up our finishing process, enabling us to offer extremely short turnarounds.

Joint Managing Director Lee Crew commented “We are over the moon with this latest purchase. Entering the 5m wide market, along with our already comprehensive range of equipment, means that we are perfectly placed to handle absolutely any project that customers require"

We've just installed this wall in our office kitchen using Mactac's Wall Wrap 100 conformable brick vinyl and matching laminate. Fitted straight to the breeze block wall and then conformed using heat, the vinyl takes the exact shape of the brick work...

We have now purchased an industrial Sewing Machine, enabling us to stitch fabric and banner prints in house. This has enabled us turn fully finished products around more quickly, especially fabric prints with stitched silicone edging (keder) which are becoming increasingly popular.
