Our Cut Letters used in IFTAs Stage Backdrop

Last evening's IFTA awards in the Gaiety Theatre saw lettering produced by us incorporated into the stage backdrop set up for the production. We provided individual foamex letters of differing sizes which were then used to great effect by the production designers in a gold-coloured display wall directly behind the stage podium.

This is not a new thing for us. We regularly have our work shown on both the large and small screens, for two main reasons: firstly, our stands are often used as backdrops or branding displays for press calls and political events which are featured on news and current affairs programmes. Secondly, we have been producing custom signs, window graphics, vehicle signage and props for TV and film productions since the late 80s. Our work has been used in various TV ads including Dairygold, Meteor, Utterly Butterly, Ballygowan, Aer Lingus, Carlsberg, National Lottery, Hellmans and on TV shows such as Planet Rock Profiles, Fair City , Bachelor's Walk and Where in the World (back in the day!). We have also produced backdrops for GAA and Munster Rugby press conferences and signage for the Setanta Sports set and for the Films Bloody Sunday, An Everlasting Piece and The Treaty. This work is some of the most fun and creative work we do and we absolutely love it! Nice to have a chance to produce something unique and of course, its a joy to spot our work on screen...
