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!

Striking graphics and entrance signage for Surge Direct by Cassie Blomquist

Tint Design’s advanced range of Digital Printing and Signage making services were combined to make this striking reception sign at Surge Direct’s head office.

The impact of this full colour graphic with the use of a fade-out effect onto optically clear film creates a bold statement to clients and employees of Surge Direct. With that being said, full cover graphics can be a striking feature when its printed to either optically clear film, wallpaper or high gloss vinyl and applied to glass or plastered walls.

Along with digital printing, signage can also leave a striking impression on clients and employees. Many of our clients are unaware that Tint Design can produce a range of digital printing, Precision Cut and 3D lettering signage.

While our in-house signage making capabilities are impressive at Tint Design, we also have an extensive network of specialist fabricators that we often work with to produce the best quality signage manufactured to your exact specifications.

Inspirational custom graphics by Cassie Blomquist

One of our recent blogs featuring Cheltenham Primary School’s new library fitout showed the Library entrance re-dressed with Digital Print graphics on glass and Precision Cut text on the walls. Here is another part of the fitout that leads to classrooms and a reading area - a space that the client wanted to include images of inspiring nature scenes that would encourage creative thinking.

The vibrant colours and crisp detail in these digital print graphics really add a pop of colour to an otherwise dull space and the choice of natural landscapes brings a little of the outside in!

Custom printed graphics are a cost effective way to add a feature panel in any room with the added convenience of being able to remove and replace the artwork as your tastes or design choices change.

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.

a ‘wheely’ great effect! by Cassie Blomquist

The Coach Ringwood created this eye-catching design for the glass dividers that separate the smoker’s and outdoor sitting areas.

By using Tint Design’s Precision Cutting service a number of ‘coach wheels’ scaled at different sizes, were cut out of frost film resulting in an eye-catching look to the outdoor area with maximum decorative impact.

The simplicity of precision cutting out of film can have a striking effect and Tint Design offer a large range of films that can be for used for any precision cut projects. Precision cut designs can be installed on a variety of surfaces such as plaster walls and glass. Combined with our Vision Effex digital printing service you can have a great feature for any decorative solution.

The large variety of applications that precision cut can be used for results in a design that succeeds in any fitout, to learn more about our precision cut service click here.

It’s time for spring racing! by Cassie Blomquist

Spring Racing_Image-01.jpg

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!

One of our latest designs was a statement feature at this months Equinox exhibitions in both Sydney and Melbourne. Not only did we heavily feature this design on our stand, we also had it printed on our complimentary calico show bags which were hugely popular and a great hit!

The Trihelix design was featured as a way of soft launching Tint Design’s first official range of decorative Braille signs. This design is the first of our Braille Sign Range and we are looking forward to the official release very soon.

Our Design Team are enjoying coming up with new designs for your use. Please feel free to check out our Design Range or even more designs on our Pinterest page and let us know what you think!

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

Image_Equinox-01.jpg

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.

A Homey Atmosphere for the Residents at Melville Aged Care by Cassie Blomquist

Melville Aged Care-03.jpg

The inspiration for this fitout was to create a feeling of warmth and comfort where residents can relax in a homey atmosphere and steer away from the typical ‘hospital look’.

Tint Design collaborated with BFN Developments to deliver a friendly and welcoming environment for residents to live in. This was achieved by Digitally Printing a white ink silhouette onto optically clear film. This feature window separates the dining area from the kitchen prep area but connects the two making them look fun and interesting rather than merely functional.
