Stackable Cuge Sign
Here’s a unique job we did recently for our good customer Irwin Motors. They wanted to have cubes with a marketing message on each face, and be able to stack them up four high.
We printed on coroplast, which is essentially plastic cardboard, often called corrugated plastic. The printed sheets were bent using a heater we built that softens a narrow straight line in a plastic so that it can be cleanly bent.
In order to stack the printed coroplast cubes, we gave them pegs of 1/8″ wood dowel that fit snugly into the flutes. That held each piece in place and keeps things from coming tumbling down if someone bumps into it.
Corrugated Plastic Sign
You see event signs like this all the time, and we print lots of them. The material is called coroplast, although we hear people call it corrugated plastic or even plastic cardboard.
Typically they are 18×24″ in size, and held up with a wire H stake.
These event signs are not for long term outdoor use, but they are fine for most events. We see customers using golf tournament signs year after year, since they are only displayed for a day or two each year.
We consider the life of a coroplast sign to be a maximum of six months, which works just fine for a lot of applications, particularly event signs.
We printed this life size cutout of an anime for the people at Aniplex. They used them at a trade show, and during talks given at the conference. We thought they were pretty cool!
We do lots of cutouts of people for events, trade shows, and we’ve even done them for the lobby of a Broadway show. But this was the first of an anime for us. Hopefully many more to come.
Wine Label Wallpaper
This was a fun job. Made me thirsty! Our customer, interior designer McCormick and Wright, wanted to have wine labels as wallpaper in their customer’s wine nook, but didn’t think actual wine labels would be either durable or easy to install.
Instead, they scanned the individual wine labels and we put together a collage of them. We then printed the wine label collage on our suede wallpaper, which is a durable commercial grade vinyl. It will last them for many years.
It also makes for interesting and fun wallpaper! Call us and we’ll make some for you!
