We just finished another job for our friends at A3. This one is kind of unique so I am breaking with my tradition of taking forever to get a post up and rushing this one to the presses.
The job was a quick turn, about two days, and consisted of several direct prints on bioboard and some custom sintra brackets to mount them on top of retail merchandising displays. Bioboard is a really cool, new, green substrate that we like, and want to get the word out about. It’s basically a replacement for foamcore, but much much stronger. You can drive a car over three 1″ sheets of the stuff stacked on top of each other! It is made of something like 63% post consumer paper and is 100% recyclable. You can print on both sides.
The only knock on the product, I personally kind of like it, is the edge. It looks pretty raw, but at the same time screams green. Most of the people we have showed it to really like it becuase it is a conversation starter and allows them to wax fantastic on how environmentally conscious they are.
The brackets were router cut out of sintra, assembled and velcroed to the back of the sign. The velcro allows the brackets to be repositioned so that they can sit higher or lower on the display.
It was a tight turn, but we got it done and the client was pleased. If you think you may be interested in doing something with the bioboard, give us a call. As always, we will hook you up.
