Expanding large format printing Capacity

GJ Plastics large format printing department continues to grow at a rapid rate to cope with the ever increasing demands, we have got busier and busier.
So we made the decision in order to cope with the extra capacity needed, we would need to expand by extending the building of our print department.
The doubling in size of the print area enabled us to purchase a Mimaki 3042 HG printer for promotional gifts and another HP FB500 flatbed Digital Printer thus more than doubling our large format printing capacity.

Due to the rapid growth in production levels and to assist us in meeting those very important customer deadlines, we also took the decision to build a dedicated cutting and finishing department for all our printing.

Correx boards, acrylic signs and banners for Bury FC

Bury Football club approached GJ Plastics to become their official sign and branding partner.

The first project we undertook was the complete revamp of all the acrylic signs; we designed and direct printed the signs, the acrylic cut to size and shape on one of our lasers.

The acrylic signs were then installed in all areas such as, the director’s suite and the 1885 hospitality lounge right the way through to the players area, referee rooms, medical areas and the offices.

We were then tasked with the design and installation of the signage around the pitch.

Whilst designing the correx signs, we ensured that we worked closely with each relevant sponsor, ensuring each correx board reflected accurately the sponsors image and brand.

Mesh outdoor banners were also designed for various sponsors, these varied in size from twenty six foot by twenty foot all the way up to an impressive forty foot by twenty foot. GJ Plastics understood the importance of working closely with both the club and the sponsor. We even designed the specially manufactured steel fitting posts, which were required for the installation of the outdoor banners.

The Ratio Law Stand.

When Manchester Company Ratio Law became the West Stand sponsors, Bury FC asked GJ Plastics to produce a 56m sign for the top of the stand. This was then expertly installed onto the stand.

The decision was made that aluminium composite signage would be the most appropriate material for this outdoor sign. Making the signs relatively lightweight, strong and durable.

The sign panels were direct printed using our large format flatbed printer. The sections were then installed onto the top of the stand, approximately 24m off the ground, with the aid of a cherry picker.

Commercial Manager Jonathan Parkinson said:  ”I am delighted to be able to welcome GJ Plastics to the growing list of businesses that have become part our business revolution.  Graham and his team have worked extremely hard in a short space of time and I’m certain we will enjoy a long and mutually successful relationship”.
