Custom Digital Print Adds Color And Excitement To Church Staging

By |September 12th, 2017|Digital Printing, Fabrics, Products, Projects|1 Comment

WOW – Who would have thought that a gorgeous, illuminating stage like this…..

Could have been derived from such a simple image as this…..?

When our clients contact us with custom drapery requests, we always try to make sure we can fully envision what they want the soft goods to look like when they are finished so that we are all on the same page about the end result. This way we can be as sure (as possible) that our custom-built digitally printed drapery will work perfectly with their venue, tour, production, or special event.

But I have to admit, when Caleb McNaughton from Highpoint Church in Aurora, Colorado sent us the above image to be digitally printed, at first I thought they were interesting but wondered why they might want something  so…uncolorful.  I can completely see now! Printed on Crystal Poplin, the excellent translucency of this fabric will allow for a multitude of different moods to be created. By simply changing the theatrical lighting that is splashed upon it, they now have an endless amount of looks and backgrounds for their stage, using the exact same soft goods.  Versatile, Dynmaic, and Brilliant!

A Metallic Look on a Digital Backdrop

By |April 19th, 2017|Digital Printing, Education, Products, Projects|1 Comment

Sometimes a digitally printed backdrop just strikes me as exceptional. Like this one we manufactured for Rodney Elwood Design for the “Time Out For Women” tour. Printed on Heavy Knit, the perspective of Rodney’s design – the crisp gold trees with the slightly out of focus background trees – creates a very serene look.

What is even more impressive is that the gold trees almost appear metallic, even though this was printed with standard CMYK (non-metallic) ink. When it was hanging in our warehouse, at first glance I thought – when did we add the glitter? The answer – we didn’t. The metallic appearance of the trees was created solely through the skill of the artist who created the image file (assisted in this photo by stage lighting, of course).

We do get occasional requests for digitally printing in metallic, which is not an option in traditional Grand Format digital printing environment utilizing CMYK color profiles and inks. However, this project demonstrates that a talented artist has the ability to create a metallic appearance in a CMYK environment. Very impressive!
