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.

Go on - win that bike

When Progressive Enterprises came to us with an idea that needed a solution - we were all over it. We got some of our creative minds together to come up with point of sale material for their Win A Bike promotion. Progressive wanted not just the bikes on show but a bit of personality to boot. Using the branding for the promotion we came up with life-size cutouts that would straddle the bikes in-store.

It's Child's Play

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.

Once again we were heavily involved with the SCIRT World Buskers Festival held here in Christchurch. We've been providing printing and signage for many years and this year we are proud to have had our own stage - the Adgraphix Stage. We wanted to show you all the exciting printing and signage we did for this 2016 event - except we forgot to get out and take some photos. Below are some pics we managed to scrape together. I think the festival was so damn good all of our focus was on the entertainment and not our task at hand!

You will be floored by this project! Don't let your eyes deceive you, it's not real timber you can see but brilliant use of floor graphics to enhance this exhibition space. When we were asked to produce a look alike product suitable for a museum space we knew we had it covered... Literally! Check out what we did and how it looks.

CMYK - No Such Colour

IMG CMYK v2

We are so far into the digital age yet there is still a bit of confusion about CMYK (and RGB) colour models. I'll do an overview of the CMYK colour model and the affect on digital print it has. The biggest misconception is that a colour specified as CMYK percentages alone represents an actual colour. It would be wrong to accuse a digital printer for producing incorrect colour if the only thing you provided was a combination of CMYK percentages such as those seen in corporate identity manuals. Read on to find out why...

El Tradicional!

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.

We like a good challenge, and this one is no exception. The very clever Bruce Edgar came to us with a project he was working on for local Christchurch artist Julia Morison. The piece was to be exhibited at the Sydney Biennale 2010. The catch was it involved a massive amount of panels, intricate detail and it had to be accurate. After a series of tests we were ready to print. It was displayed in the Sydney Opera House... see details below.
