Brisbane sign company A Sign Design has produced a series of striking interior window graphics with Drytac ViziPrint Deco + optically clear window film for the nearby Queensland University of Technology (QUT).
One of the leading further education facilities in Queensland, QUT contacted A Sign Design to assist on a project that required privacy window graphics without full block out.
A Sign Design came up with an innovative concept with the planned graphics depicting the bark of the Melaleuca, a species of trees native to Australia. The design offered a high level of privacy, without completely blocking out the windows.
A Sign Design turned to Shann DPM, an exclusive distributor of Drytac films in Australia, to identify the right material to work with on the project. Jamie Lockhart from Shann recommended Drytac ViziPrint Deco, a scratch-resistant window film designed to adhere permanently to smooth surfaces such as glass, plastic and metal.
Drytac ViziPrint Deco + is ideal for high-end architectural and building requirements, as well as a wide variety of custom decorating applications.
“We were looking for a UV-printable, optically-clear window film that wouldn’t be easily scratched or damaged during and after the installation process,” said Anele Christian, print & production technician at A Sign Design. “Jamie from Shann DPM brought us a sample of ViziPrint Deco + scratch-resistant media. After testing, we sent a job out to be installed and the feedback we received from our team was very positive.”
As Drytac ViziPrint Deco + is printable on Latex and UV printer, A Sign Design was able to print the stunning Melaleuca design onto the film using its Océ ARIZONA 1260 XT UV printer.
“The fact that the media really is scratch resistant and easy to install is a huge benefit to us,” Christian said. “The need for re-prints is massively reduced, making the whole process much more cost effective.”
Shann has warehouses around Australia and in New Zealand, employing over 100 people, and a joint venture in a manufacturing plant in Vietnam.
