Printing onto Greyback Material.
At Spiral Colour we have printed banners on behalf of the Tim Parry Jonathan Ball Foundation for Peace. The foundation works to support young people to turn away from violence. Through our Think project, the foundation works with young people to reduce their susceptibility to extremism, helping them to develop the skills needed to consider carefully the consequences of their actions.
As part of the Think Project, the foundation asked for a number of two metre wide roller banners which could be used as part of exhibitions and displays. The designer of these roller banners want them to be as eye catching as possible whilst also keeping the design mature looking.
To do this we were asked to print these roller banners onto the reverse of the greyback material that we use to print our roller banners. The reason we did this was that the reflective surface that the material backs on to gives an excellent shiny surface.
To print these banners we needed to print them on the Jetrix. This allowed us to print a very rich black, but also to ensure that the ink really took to the substrate to ensure that the banners looked how the client envisioned.
The end result can be seen in the image above, with the metallic substrate showing through brilliantly and giving an extra dimension to the finished product. Under spotlights the banner really comes into it’s own as the light catches the reflective surfaces and contrasts excellently with the black present on the banner.
We are always interested in looking for new techniques to use when we produce work for clients. If you have a novel way in which you want work to be produced don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss your needs.
