Vehicle Graphics for PRETTYLITTLETHING.com

So imagine this right, one of our bright Pink vans pulling up at Malcolm Ryan studios only being told we needed to fit some graphics for the creative team at PLT. So, grabbing our kit and making our way to the stage in question, definitely looking weak pulling the huge sliding industrial door open to find…. another Pink car! This time, a stunning, absolutely breathtaking Cadillac, ready to be adorned with some high quality self adhesive vinyl 🤓

Thankfully we’ve got a skilled team of experienced fitters who have dealt with branding private jets, classic Ferraris and everything in between so this was right up our street and well the results speak for themselves – demonstrating how graphics can have such a powerful impact, especially on social media which is where this job ended up as part of PLT’s Black Friday campaign.

Same Day Foamex Printing in London – How do we do it?

Turning any bespoke service around the Same Day is always a big feat but we’ve been doing it for nearly five years now, providing a reliable and efficient service 24 hours a day across London on everything printed – we’ve signwritten Private Jets overnight, transformed the interior of Harrods and even printed props for blockbuster films. So… how do we do it? 🤔

Same Day Foamex Board Printing London - Citiprint

Firstly, we owe a lot of it to our well maintained printers themselves! As this article is about Foamex, the machine in question is our swissQprint Oryx, a UV printer which allows us to print directly onto pretty much anything! So, that’s the introductions complete, let’s run you through the process in just FIVE quick steps!

  1. We’ve recently completed a huge refurbishment of our London premises, allowing us to hold even more stock of substrates (that’s sheets of foamex, aluminium, correx etc) so we’ve always got the board you need for your job. We tend to recommend 3mm foamex for most scenarios – it’s light, flexible and our most popular option.
  2. The Van Gogh stage – your artwork! We RIP your artwork (not literally!) – this means we get your files ready for printing then after a few minutes, we have a converted file ready for printing so it’s off to the Production Area and our UV workstation…
  3. Let’s hit that big red print button – we load your sheet onto the printer and make sure the printer is up to temperature and that the colours are spot on (we can achieve 99% of the CMYK colour gamut but that’s a geeky post for another time)
  4. Time for a trim – our UV printer dries the ink it prints straight away, meaning we can take your job straight to the cutting bench or use our huuuuge guillotine and cut your job down to size. Now…. importantly, we recycle any waste from this process, ensuring none of the material we buy in feels left out!
  5. Boxing – Here’s the fun bit, finding the right packaging for your job, we carefully wrap and box all substrate jobs so that it feels safe and loved in transit from us to you! ❤️

So there you have it, that’s the abridged version if you like of how we transform your design into Foamex, on a Same Day turnaround in London – on time, every time! If you’d like to know more, why not visit us or better still, try us on your next Foamex job.

Displays for McLaren 720S Launch

We’ve worked now with both McLaren London and Ascot dealerships for five years, in which time we’ve seen plenty of stunning models launched and sold. But nothing beats seeing the latest model unveiled in the flesh so when Jardine asked us to produce some high quality displays ahead of their customer launch event, we stepped in and produced simple yet sophisticated results.

For this event, we supplied several premium roller banners printed on a fast turnaround and designed in house, as well as 4m flags to welcome guests upon arrival.

Mug Printing for Channel 4’s Celebrity Call Centre

How many times have you opened a present on Christmas to find it’s yet another novelty mug?! Well, not all mugs are mugs, especially when it comes to supplying AgeUK with a case of Same Day Mugs for their recent filming with Channel 4’s Celebrity Call Centre.

With the laughter from James Acaster, down to earth advice from Nick Hewer and smiles from Gogglebox’s Steph and Dom, Celebrity Call Centre tackled the public’s dilemma this Christmas in a Channel 4 special.

Working in a call centre can be hard work so it’s no wonder those involved enjoyed our mugs so much.

But, it wasn’t just the Celebs who were impressed as AgeUK themselves said “Thanks so much for sorting this so quickly, they look fab!”

Sign Installation at UCI Cycling World Cup – Olympic Velodrome for British Cycling

British Cycling came to us requiring a solution for correx sponsor signs. We came up with a solution overnight with morning delivery and were then tasked with replacing and installing new graphics on the Velodrome track finish line. This was done on a tight turnaround with limited access the night before the UCI World Cup.

Once again, we demonstrated our agility in turning around specialist sign installations on site nationwide with the correct insurance in place for client peace of mind.

Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N ExCeL Signs and Graphics

The events team at the new STATION attraction at the ExCeL contracted us to produce fast turnaround graphics and signs including installation prior to the opening to the press and public. 

The exterior of the venue was treated to Print and Cut of nearly 30 different Avengers Logos up to 1.5m wide. These were installed on site to hoarding and were part of a solution devised by Citiprint and the events company to bring colour and recognition to the attraction for the end client.

Internally, key branding was applied to bring attention to 12 fire exit doors with themed graphics used to keep with the event’s branding. These were matt laminated for internal and external use, resulting in a high quality finish to match the building.

We also produced around 30 foamex signs of various designs for wayfinding purposes, security and public safety.

Our installation service is available Nationwide 24/7 with an experienced and skilled team ready to leave within an hour to be with you.
