If temperatures are below the minimum application temperature the adhesive can become hard, resulting in the material failing to bond effectively to the glass.

Blue is the colour

A new livery on the Huddersfield FC Team bus was recently unveiled, resulting in a striking end result which will definitely attract attention wherever it goes.

The attention however, will not result in any invasion of privacy for the travelling players and staff due to a superbly executed application of vinyl by the Stoke-on-Trent based printing company Graphix.

Graphix managed to apply 140metres of both solid and Contra Vision® perforated film in just two days, but this is even more impressive when you notice the accuracy of colour matching between the two different films. Continue reading “Blue is the colour”

404 Store Not Found…

If you’re in Chicago, Boston, NYC, Seattle, Philadelphia or Denver you may have seen some bright blue store fronts stating ‘404 store not found’. This attention-grabbing stunt is by US cell phone service provider Visible (a Verizon owned start-up company).

You’ll be familiar with the ‘404’ error code when the server can’t find what has been requested. The same goes for Visible’s stores. They do not exist. They have no visible locations. They are INVISIBLE. If you do stumble across one you will be greeted with the below message. Continue reading “404 Store Not Found…”

SWS Signage and Starleaton bring Uni past to life…

Original Post by Jake Nelson (www.print21.com/au)

SWS Signage, together with media supplier Starleaton, has created an innovative solution to hide building works inside the University of Newcastle, printing one way films with images that reflect the heritage of building.

To hide the interior refurbishment works, the university turned to SWS Signage, based in nearby Sandgate. SWS printed archival photos from the 1920s and ’30s onto Performance HD White on Black Perforated Window Film, designed for one-way viewing. “They wanted a solution that created some privacy for them, and also made sure that the artwork displayed in the windows reflected the heritage of the building,” said Jay Miller, sales executive at SWS.

Contra Vision® perforated window film enables the delivery of an extravagant projection mapping display that has helped put The Macallan’s new distillery on the map.

Translucent White – Definitely fit for purpose

Contra Vision’s ‘Performance Translucent White’ perforated window film, was recently used by Ensign to excellent effect on the David Lloyd Gym at the Rotunda in Kingston, London

On such a landmark building it was vital that the graphics could be clearly seen by passers-by. However, more importantly, David Lloyd wanted to ensure customers training inside the gym still had plenty of light passing through the glass-fronted gymnasium and could also enjoy the view out to the street below. This is a vibrant area in the evening and a key reason so many people choose the gym for their training.
