Wonder walls

Aslan undertook a number of WrapTheHouse projects to show-off the capabilities of its three new printable outdoor media of the same name. Here you can see WrapTheHouse being used on various rough wall surfaces.


Spot the difference

Project Print Management delivered this impressive trompe l’oeil building wrap. PPM chief Justin Murray said getting the artwork right was tricky. “Ideally the photo is taken head on, in the middle at first floor height to help ensure perspectives are as accurate as possible. The photos were uploaded to our designer who stitched them together and ensured the colour was accurate to blend in with the actual buildings on the street to better fool the eye.”

A fright of a job

Project Print Management pulled together this printed hoarding design for Westminster Abbey. It replaces traditional sign writing graphics installed in April and intended to remain in-situ for a year but requiring replacement due to construction work.

“To avoid this happening again we created the new hoarding so the design was on either two, three or four panels, as opposed to one continuous design,” said Project Print Management’s Justin Murray. “This is so that when the construction site morphs, the hoarding design can also be altered without having an impact on the overall design. This ensures the hoarding panels can be reused during the course of the building project.”

This new hoarding has been digitally printed onto 3mm aluminium composite panels and over-laminated with an anti-graffiti film for additional protection. 

“As this hoarding is right in front of the abbey entrance we needed an early start to install it,” added Murray. “We arrived at 5.45am and managed to get most of the panels up by 11am.”

Hide and peek

Manchester-based printer PFI Solutions has been commissioned by Imagine CGA to print decorative screens around 19th century Gorton Monastery in Manchester during its restoration programme and the development of its visitor centre.

Panels that resemble the building and feature brickwork and stained glass images have been produced using PPB’s proBond aluminium composite material (ACM) printed on PFI’s Jetrix UV flatbed curable inkjet printers. One section of the printed signage incorporates a ‘viewing hole’, which allows the public to peek at the progress of the work.

Looking up

This scaffolding wrap on Wigmore Street in London was the largest handled by Project Print Management (PPM) in 2015. Totalling nearly 1000m2, the wrap was digitally printed onto mesh PVC across five banners, each 15m high to cover seven elevations.

First installation of KAPA® tech in the UK raises the roof at the home of English Rugby

With Great Britain hosting the Rugby World Cup later this year, Twickenham Stadium, the home of English rugby will become the focal point for the world’s media and a mecca for rugby fans from around the globe.  Being such a landmark on the sporting stage, Twickenham stadium is constantly looking for ways to maximise its presence and promote its significance as a historic sporting venue for international rugby.

PPM has it wrapped up

Project Print Management (PPM) has installed a 16m high x 74m long digitally printed mesh PVC building wrap at Loseley House near Guildford in Surrey. The wrap, which weighs 350kg, covers two elevations over a very complex scaffolding structure. Justin Murray of PPM said: “There were many challenges in making sure the print fit the scaffolding, as that structure is much larger than the building. We also had the added challenge that the front door was still to be used so the print had to line-up with the actual door. A site office, materials lift and two skips also had to be accessed from the front of the banner and panels had to be pre-cut into the mesh building wrap also ensuring the openings line-up with the pre fabricated scaffolding structure.

Swift Signs supplied and installed the graphic wrap

Weathering the storm

After 12 months of exposure the images that wrap the reception building and walkways for Weymouth’s Sea Life Tower have proven their durability. Swift Signs supplied and installed the graphic wrap which used around 1Km of Arlon DPF 8000.

Blackberry picking

When Research in Motion, decided to rebrand itself as BlackBerry, release a new operating system and simultaneously launch a new flagship smartphone, Oasis Graphic turned the entire fascia of company’s building in Slough into a marketing tool by covering the 60m wide frontage.

The building wrap was created using a blue gradient fill on UV printed Contra Vision One Way Vision Vinyl and applied over the whole front of the building. Two 9m x 5m images of the handset were then UV printed onto exterior vinyl, profile cut and mounted as overlays. The lettering on the front of the building was created from profile cut stock vinyl.
