Outlined below are some of our recent projects and various programs, all of which we are proud to have been involved in:
We were responsible for the printing and installation of over 50,000 custom directional signs throughout the various venues during the games. Our signage package was featured in Digital Output magazine as well as Sign Media Canada.
We produced and installed banners for crash pads at virtually all of the venues for the games including the Richmond Oval and the all of the skiing venues. These graphics represented the primary look of the games during television and other media coverage so the quality of the printing and installation needed to be extremely high quality.
During the Olympics we received a call from one of our clients sister companies in Seattle looking for a rush print order for all their wall banners at the Heineken house for the 2010 Olympics. They had received their order from a different company and they were not happy with the colour output as they did not match their corporate colours.
They were looking to us to reprint all their Olympic branding over the weekend as the Olympics had already started and needed to have it replaced by Monday. We worked round the clock to print their order and had our installation department install the new signage before Monday morning.
They were very pleased that we were able to assist them on getting their signage properly printed in such a timely manner they ended up sending us more orders throughout the week.
For the Olympics, our client wanted to install window wraps of a transparent nature so that they could be viewed from both sides without blocking out the natural lighting. They wanted to wrap 2 different buildings on the site from the inside. Part of the challenge was that because of the size of the windows a lot of the images would have to be paneled.
We used a clear vinyl printed with image/white/image ink to showcase the vibrant colours on both sides of the window. We also installed all the panels, which took about 2 days & we cut on site all the panels to the custom shape of the design.
For this project our client was looking for something unique and different. We suggested we use a clear polycarbonate material that gave a transparent look. We used a 1/2 “ material that was routed to shape and inserted into log cut outs which were used as stands sign holders. These signs were displayed throughout the woods at Stanley Park as directional signs and information kiosks. Mesh banner was also used to wrap fencing printed with Indian art images. The customer was very pleased with the outcome of these signs as they were extremely creative yet cost effective without straying from the original woody, rustic, concept.
We implemented a stock catalog for the most popular items ordered by restaurants across Canada and assigned them an inventory name for ease of ordering. This allows us to ship out stock signs as ordered virtually overnight. We’ve had great response from this catalog because of the ease of ordering and the quickness of delivery.
We work with McDonalds Head Office in designing and implementing new signage for restaurants on a regular basis. They provide the concept and goals of the signage and we’ve created templates and suggested materials etc to make the project work. Once approved, we ship to individual stores across Canada.
