Examples of recent Exhibition projects are: Middle East We provided, installed and project managed the full graphics package for their ADIPEC and MEOS shows in the Middle East from our Dubai office. UK Office November’s MPH show in London and Birmingham: we were given the task of researching and providing a new style of stand-alone bannerstand system to compliment the stand. The stand-alone graphic display units were to replace standard bannerstand systems and were required to look great, be strong and sturdy and able to be variably arranged, and allow graphics to be removed and re-used/ replaced in future shows. The Centro2 systems were sourced, graphics produced and both graphics and systems installed on-site. We have continuously supported their team at head office, on London’s Southbank, including face to face meetings from the early stages of design, to working closely with their build teams here and abroad, ensuring their graphic printing and installation meets their exact brand requirements, here and on a global scale.

  14. 14. At Four Graphics we have always invested in the latest technologies available that meet our clients’ very high expectations in print quality. Direct to Media Printing Although digital direct to media printing has been in our industry for the past 5 years it has only recently reached a level of quality that is acceptable to Four Graphics and our Clients, We can now print at an amazing 1000 dpi with UV cured inks that are colourfast and weatherproof direct to boards such as Foamboard, Foamex and acrylic to mention just a few. We are also able to print white ink so different colour boards can now be utilised. By implementing this new technology it has forwarded Four Graphics vast improvements in production by reducing processes. 8-Colour UV Ink Jets The latest 8-Colour Inkjet machines offer unrivalled quality and colour accuracy. Now utilising both light grey and photo black, as well as light magenta & light cyan, to further enhance the image quality. These machines can also cater for media rolls up to 60” wide, and media types including paper, backlit film, canvas and foils. Solvent Print & Solvent Print & Cut Solvent machines have been with the large format print industry since the evolution of digital print. The latest technologies now offer sublime print quality for large banner runs and outdoor events, along with the added advantage now of a print and cut facility. This facility allows production of intricate cutting of print on vinyl for application to any sub-straight. This again has reduced production time and improved the overall quality of our product. The latest 8-Colour Inkjet machines offer unrivalled quality and colour accuracy 13 - Next Generation Technology

Typically we are seeing a 40% reduction in raw material usage and a reduction in electricity due to fewer processes used to obtain job completion. In 2012 we have monitored our performance and are very encouraged at a reduction of our overall CO2e footprint by 13% to 3.09 tonnes per staff member (industry average 5.09 tonnes) giving the total footprint at 23.2 tonnes compared to 26.2 for the year ending 2011. We take your environmental policy very seriously, always striving to better our performance with reference to our CO2e footprint. We achieve this by involving all our staff members to look at all aspects of our business to find ways to minimise our CO2e impact. Four Graphics recognises that its largest impact on the environment is power consumption and plastic usage. Since joining the Carbon Smart program in 2011 our goals for reduction have remained the same, that being an over all reduction of 14% over 3 years.
