5 Layers of Excellence by Cassie Blomquist

A few months back you might have seen that we added not one but two new Mimaki 5 layer UV printers to our machinery inventory and we couldn’t be happier with the quality of the prints we’re getting out of them.

Five layer printing allows us the ability to print two contrasting colour schemes visible on opposing sides of the same print.

This means that for something like a Safety Decal, for example, you would be able to print one colour scheme to be visible from one side of the glass that complies with the 30% contrast to its back ground and a varied colour on the other side to achieve the same code compliance when visible from the other side of the glass.

Another good example would be an entry logo on a glass door - design your logo artwork to be viewed positively when your visitors enter the room as well as when they exit!

Creativity is the key to this new technology and we can’t wait to see how our clients embrace the challenge!

Getting Creative with Acoustic Panels by Cassie Blomquist

More fun in the office!

As you can see above, acoustic paneling has endless possibilities. You can combine the product’s range of colours and thickness, and custom cut them to any shape desired. We wanted to have some fun and experiment in this space which has been a major success!

Acoustic panels are an extremely popular wall finishing solution and a vital part of many fitouts. At Tint Design we can turn a dull room into a statement one, by using our Vision Effex and Precision Cutting services. The design possibilities are limitless for creating stand out features from a practical substrate.

We love how this office turned out and we hope we have inspired you to bring out your creative side.

It’s time for spring racing! by Cassie Blomquist

We pulled these photos out of the archives, which was a job we did for the Spring Racing Carnival in 2017.

The private marquee in the Bird Cage featured acrylic panels to which we installed dichroic window film. As you can see from the pictures above, the film creates a harlequin effect which was a unique and colourful rainbow like choice for the 2017 Flemington fitout. An event like this is a great opportunity to be creative using bold and unique products and designs.

Be it fashion or interior fitouts, it’s always exciting to watch the Carnival to see what’s on trend!

Introducing Squid - a brand new product! by Cassie Blomquist

Squid-01-02.jpg

Is it a film? Is it fabric? It’s one that acts like the other!

Squid is a self-adhesive translucent textile for window treatment. Basically, it’s fabric that you can stick to glass, and it’s amazing!

This new product to hit Australian shores is from Belgium and bridges the gap between window film and blinds to solve privacy issues.

It comes in five neutral colours; Chalk, Bone, Oak, Ash and Rock which on their own are elegant and sophisticated. However, by teaming it up with our Tint Design services, we are also able to Digitally Print onto the Squid product to create custom and unique window treatments.

If you would like to see the Squid range or discuss it’s benefits further, please contact our team at Tint Design and we will be happy to come and meet with you.

Huge Success at Equinox 2018! by Cassie Blomquist

What a show! It’s the first time Tint Design have had a stand at the Equinox Exhibition and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out. We were present at both the Sydney and Melbourne shows and it appears we had a impact at both which is so exciting!

With Tint Design now providing a number of products and services we were determined to present as much as we could on our stand and in the end were were able to showcase printed and cut Acoustic Panels, printed Frost and clear films, Precision Cut graphics and some acrylic laser cut lettering.

In addition to this however, we also showcased some new products that have only recently been added to the Tint Design collection;

  1. Squid - it’s a fabric that can be applied to glass and it’s amazing!

  2. Five Layer Printing - our newly purchased printers are able to produce five layer prints. This means that a graphic can have a front and back allowing an image to be viewed on both sides of the film. But more about this later…

  3. Our FIRST range of Tactile Signage - while at this stage, we have only released the concept, the final product will be available very soon and we are SO exited about it!

It appeared that many of you were both interested in, and excited about our new products and while Equinox was just the introduction and an attempt to wet your appetite, you can expect to hear a lot more about these products very soon.

More New Printers at Tint Design! by Cassie Blomquist

While our current range of printer are still going strong, we are aware that to stay ahead we need to keep not only improving the quality of our products, but also stay up to date with new technology to increase our printing capabilities and product range.

Over the years we have brought you white printing, fade effects, printing onto a wide range of substrates such as acoustic board, composite panel and wood, printing and cut out designs and lately, tactile designs and Signage.

With our new printers, we are able to deliver greater speed and quality, but in addition to this, we are now offering, 5 layer printing!! Don’t know much about this? Stay tuned…

Tint Design at work! by Cassie Blomquist

At a recent install for We Make Online Videos our client had a bit of fun documenting the installation process and we think it’s a great showcase of some of the products and services we can offer your fitout.

The install included two digitally printed Acoustic walls, a precision cut Digital Print wall graphic, digitally printed logos on frost for their entry doors, and digitally printed graphics on optically clear film to create a subtle Privacy Band. It’s great to see our expert staff at work installing different finishes to a space that are as practical as they are decorative. The acoustic panels, for example, were chosen not only as a soft decorative finish but to combat an acoustic challenge the client had between two of their office spaces.

For more information on any of these products or to chat about how we can solve some of the design wishes you have to give your work space a facelift then contact us today or check out our socials for more design inspiration.

A bold facade in the heart of Shepparton by Cassie Blomquist

It is with great pride that we can finally share with you one of our larger projects of 2017 - the striking south facade of the brand new Shepparton Law Courts that were officially opened on Friday March 23, 2018 by The Honourable Martin Pakula MP, Attorney-General, in the presence of the Chief Magistrate, His Honour Judge Peter Lauritsen.  
It was with great pleasure that Tint Design worked along side ADCO Constructions to realise the extraordinary vision of the south facade that was cleverly designed by the team at Architectus. Of the $73 million dollar project this incredibly detailed facade is the result of many hours of cutting, weeding, application and installation of hundreds of lineal meters of precision cut film to hundreds of square meters of glass.
After an extensive review of the building timeline and access restrictions it was decided that the entirety of this install would take place prior to the glass being installed to the building. The seemingly random placing of the seven different frit-pattern designs had to match their corresponding glass unit but were installed out of order depending on when the units arrived to the warehouse. This installation puzzle was just one element of the many challenges of taking on a project of this size however our production team worked seamlessly and around the clock to bring this one element of this exceptional design to life.
