Service Graphics prints 'largest ever' PVC banner for Jubilee
Monday, May 28, 2012
Service Graphics has produced what is claimed to be the UK's largest ever PVC print job, a 100mx37m banner commemorating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The banner, which was printed in 42 separate sections, has been mounted on Sea Containers House, a 46m-high building located on London's South Bank.
Service Graphics was awarded the print job by private real estate development firm, Deerbrook Group, which is developing the site into a four-star Mondrian brand hotel.
The company, which is the large format print and display division of St Ives, had to turn the job around in 15 days with planning permission only granted on 10 May.
The black back PVC banner was printed on its Durst Rho 500 printer in Chessington, Surrey and then fabricated into seven sections using high frequency welding to bond the material.
Upon completion, the banner, which is the company's largest job to date, was unveiled last Friday (25 May) at 10am.
Scott King, sales director of Service Graphics said: "We are delighted to work with Deerbrook Group to produce such an extraordinary building banner.
"This project represents the largest ever single graphic produced by Service Graphics and we are extremely pleased with the result."
The banner depicts the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, with Prince Charles, Prince Edward, Prince Andrew, Lord Mountbatten along with The Queen, Prince Phillip, Captain Mark Phillips and Princess Anne standing on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
