Cardboard Cutouts

We do a lot of one-off cutouts for events and trade shows. Cutting them out by hand is costly, however, and we've recently introduced a technology that allows us to make multiples cost effectively. What we do is direct print them onto white cardboard, cut them out with a digital cutter, and add a cardboard stand. For quantities of 5-100 pieces, this is a very good way to make cut-outs.

The cutouts in the picture above were done to publicize summer athletic programs in schools.

Sometimes the cutouts are not people! Here's a picute of a car cutout we did recently. It's not the first car we've done, either! These are typically shipped in a few pieces and have multiple stands in back.

Smart Posters

Bring excitement to a conventional sign stand! A digital picture frame in a standard poster allows you to change content and have the movement that brings customer attention.

The digital picture frame has an internal 512 mb of memory, so it will hold over 1000 jpg photos. In addition, it will show photos from a memory stick or SD memory card (the kind used in digital cameras). Photos in a 3:4 aspect ratio will fill the frame completely, and the frame automatically resizes photos to fit. If, for instance, you wanted to have pictures of a dozen of your products cycling on the frame, you could put them all on a memory stick and have the frame show them every 5, 10, or 20 seconds.

Note that the frames need electricity. The backlighting of the pictures uses more power than can reasonably be supplied by a battery.
