BOXING CLEVER WITH HANSIGN
Thanks though to some creative input from Swansea College of Art and Swansea Council, and to some printing and wrapping expertise courtesy of Swansea based Hansign, some of Swansea’s junction boxes in streets around the city’s station are getting more than a second glance. Some are even drawing expressions of admiration.
Numbering among the more unusual of the briefs coming Hansign's was recently, the notion of wrapping electrical boxes raised a few questions. Among them was what material to use. Metamark was consulted and its advise was to print the designs supplied by Swansea College on Metamark MD5-H. This material prints like MD5, that’s what it is, but has a special adhesive that really hangs on to low-energy surfaces that don’t work well with other adhesives. The output was laminated with MD705 to create a durable print that would stick ’til the end of time.
Installation of the prints is testimony to Hansign’s expertise. The boxes look good from any angle and really do cheer up the area around them which was always the intent. Hansign has completed about twelve boxes now. That leaves quite a few on the streets of the towns and cities around the UK. Hansign may just have started something here. What’s next? Bins? Post boxes? Bus Shelters.
Over to you, Hansign.
