Wirewerks Holiday Cards image

We love working with our clients to create custom holiday cards and promotions. Here’s a feature of one we designed recently for Wireworks. This high performance fiber optic and copper solutions provider wanted a unique card to complement their brand identity. We took the challenge and created this clean snowflake illustration built from elements of their logo. The result is a simple design that stays true to the essence of their company. Holiday cards and direct mail pieces are a great way to keep your company fresh in your client’s minds without asking for anything in return. They give them those nice best wishes we all want to hear at the end of the year. Need a holiday or greeting card for your company? Get ...

Water Transfer Printing video

We are mesmerized by this water printing technique! Hydrographic Printing is a decorating process for 3D objects that uses a water-soluble film containing a printed design. The pattern is printed onto a thin film that is laid out on a tank of water. With the use of an activator, the film dissolves in the water leaving the ink floating perfectly flat on the surface of the water. This floating ink will then stick to the 3D object, transferring the design to it. This printing technique can decorate pretty much anything! Want to try this on a small scale? Do it on your nails using the water marble technique. Click here to learn how!

Nikamoon Annual Report 2015-2016 image

Once again, Niskamoon Corporation chose our team to design of their 2015-2016 Annual Report. The 8.5” x 10.5” report showcases another year of success for the corporation, honouring their dedication to preserve Cree traditions and featuring a local photographer’s work with breathtaking captures of Cree landscape and culture. For the printing, a raised spot UV finish of the company’s logomark feather is featured on the cover page. We also bound the pages using hidden spiral binding. This makes the book stong and still keeps a spine with a perfect bound look. Shorter pages separate every chapter of the report in bold colours with topographic lines representing their connection to their land. The fully hidden spiral binding combines the advantages and sturdiness of ...
