We started the Winter 2018 in a great way, creating some festive props such as the red and gold sleigh, we also had the pleasure of creating the amazing characters Shrek & Donkey to be used at creative displays.
Props are a great way to create a wow factor at an event & make it memorable!
We can create custom props, sculptures, CNC cut large letters & logos with the right colours and shapes to amplify your branding in a positive way!
The custom props add an excitement element to an event that create a perfect photo opportunity for all attending which is great for social media marketing at it’s best and with ease. In effect the prop can be a great tool to gain positive visual impact and create a talking point for your business or organisation. Especially because of the approach & a much more fun way of engaging with people + media.
The props we create and are great for indoors and out door events once coated with fr polyurea which is both a water / impact resistant coating.
With the large letters and 3d logos as well as cutting them out, coating and spray painting we can prepare the design file to cut out with our in house CNC facilities.
Take a look at some of the key props we have created for our clients which have made a positive impact at their event venues!
There are many techniques we use to achieve our creative projects & props.
One of the main techniques and products we use to create our props, sculptures, 3d logos & large letters is waterproof + extremely durable coating application of Polyurea which is a high quality rubber material
How do we apply it?
Polyurea is a manually spray applied coating using a high-pressure system with our specialist coating machine.
The amount of layers applied will depend on thickness required.
Most often we coat on to sculptures, shapes and letters carved or CNC cut from polystyrene.
Is Prep still necessary ?
Just like anything for good results prep is crucial, sanding the surface, making sure no moisture is important.
Advantages of polyurea application?
Speed is the major advantage of this coating, after spray application the coating is dry within seconds!
Depending on how smooth you would like the finish to be there may be some sanding prep work prior to primer application.
Once primed and fully dry the project is ready to spray paint!
This FR coating we use is both water & impact resistant which is perfect for the props durability and practicality.
Especially if you are looking for your props to be long lasting and suitable for both indoors and outdoors.
Take a look at some of our props where polyurea has been a major factor in getting it right!
Take a look at some of our recent projects, with our CNC router we have the capability of cutting out large 3d letters, numbers & logos for events.
We can cut them out from polystyrene, foam or even ply wood,
The letters are suitable for indoors & out door events once they are coated with FR polyurea which is water + impact resistant. The CNC router allows for precision & time saving manufacturing.
Take a look at some of our projects. The latest large letters we created for Stirling universities graduation events.
The large letters are a great feature for events, promotions product launches, great 3d signage or simply to raise awareness.
As well as cutting and full production we are able to prepare design file for the cutting.
