15/03/2020 Covid-19 update

We are still open for new enquiries and most orders.
Lead times on some smaller orders may be a bit longer than normal, as we are batching them. Larger orders should be largely un-effected.

We are following the government guidance with regards to social distancing in the work place. We are blessed with a large work place, so each staff member can have plenty of space. We have always been very conscious with cleanliness,  and have multiple hand-wash stations throughout.

We are not open to the public, and are not currently meeting with anyone. If you need to discuss a job, please call on 029 20 522 510.

We are not running at full capacity through this time, and the office is not always physically manned, so there may be a slight delay in getting back to you. The best form of contact is email, but we are also reachable on the phone.

We hope you all stay safe, and we get though this as quickly as we safely can.

NEW for 2020 – Our 3D Cardboard Letters!

Our 3D letters are expanding! We are pleased to announce our NEW cardboard letters for 2020.

 

For our customers looking for something a little different to our polystyrene and wooden letters, we now also produce cardboard and papier mache letters.

  

We use a thick double ply cardboard as the starting point for all our cardboard letters. We can then edge these with a single ply cardboard – which gives a nice “framed” effect, or thin, more flexible card – for a smoother, less faceted curve. The 3D letters can then be left as plain card / cardboard – or finished with a layer of paper mache – which gives a patchwork textured effect – as well as adding considerable strength to the letters.

As the cardboard letters are hollow, if you need to dispose of them – they will flatten down to a fraction of their original volume.

Our cardboard letters have been developed and produced at our studios in the UK.

See here for more information on our 3D cardboard letters and logos.

Keeping the flu virus at bay with our 3D FLU BUGS!

With flu season out in force, our 3D flu bugs are great props to display at a range of venues and locations to promote good hygiene and hand washing, in particular at doctors surgeries and other healthcare buildings.

  

The bug shapes are available in a range of sizes and different designs, and they can they can be coloured to suit a particular theme or branding.

See here for more information on our 3D flu bug props.

Our 3D bugs are designed and manufactured at our studios in the UK. They are produced from expanded polystyrene containing a flame retarding additive. This makes them lightweight, and suitable for sitting on shelves, and suspending if required.  The polystyrene core is then coated with a reinforcing coating, which makes them considerably stronger than un-coated polystyrene, without being a hard coating.  This makes the props ideal to use at a wide range of locations.
