Props, Props and more Props :)

We have been unfortunately neglecting our blog over the past 2 months - work has been crazy with lots of exciting projects ongoing in the workshop!

We won a great contract in September with global tech giant Oracle to design and manufacture 50 lettering props for the launch of #OracleDigital at all their offices around the world. We had a 5 day turn around to contend with so the props could be shipped to the various destination on time for the official launch!

Thankfully everything worked really well and our clients were delighted with the finished products!

Onward to the next cool project we went, working this time with on 3 x 5ft props for OktoberfestBeag 2016. The props were sculpted in Polystyrene, painted and vinyl graphics applied then off to the festival held at various locations around the island.

Again working to a tight deadline we are very fortunate to have invested in large foam and vinyl cutting machinery to enable short lead times are met effectively and efficiently for ourselves and the client alike.

During the madness of all the projects we found time to design and make some lettering props for our friends at Today Fm. The station is at the forefront of raising much needed funds for The Irish Cancer Society and so we felt the need to play our part and donate some props to the cause.

The teams used them at their various events around the country, we are really honoured to have been able to help in a small way.

So here we are September, we missed updating our blog in July with holidays so we will be overloading this months blog post:)

It's been hectic as ever with several prop works leaving for the US 2 weeks ago. Our nail varnish pouring props (as below) are always in demand from the states especially. We have re-engineered these products so we can avail of reasonable postal charges for our clients.

Below is a personalised prop for outdoor signage ready for fitting.

This one has been built with stainless steel and fibreglass so its very light, weather proof but most importantly it's really strong! Coated in 2k paints chosen by our client.

It's festival season here in Ireland and event organisers are constantly seeking innovative signage props to entice attendees in the marketing building up and while at the event.

We produced a 9ft sign for The Park After Dark Festival held annually in Glaslough Co.Monaghan. Our sign greeted music fans to the Elephant Rom sponsored stage. Using a mix of mix of bright funky colours and fonts the sign survived the madness and is ready for next years event.

The Blues Festival came to Monaghan Town again this year to huge crowds from across the island of Ireland. One of the better known locations for the music is AN Poc Fada, the owner asked us to design a prop which members of the public could donate towards the music.

Having already a 3ft minion in storage we decided to covert him to being a blues musician for that weekend. Stuart rocked the weekend with a cigar box blues guitar and stood on an amp.

Monies could be donated by dropping coins into the guitar head which then dropped into the amp for safe keeping!

3D letters are always requested for events, just this week Maynooth University had our hashtag props out for graduation! We personalise the props for each of the clients needs so they choose the fonts and colours from designs and information we supply pre manufacture.
