Large logos

Large logo and large letter props are a great way to increase brand awareness at events and for viral marketing campaigns.  We use our laser cutter, CNC mill, or good old fashioned hand skills to produce logos from a range of materials.  By combining these methods with spray painting and vinyl or transfers we can create eye-catching props of your logos.  We can also produce large letters of up to 8′ x 4′ (2440mm x 1220mm) in a variety of thicknesses.

Moulding / casting

Mould making and casting is a great way to create stunning replica effects, simply. After making a master model lots of effects and textures are possible including metal and stone effects. Great for one off bespoke items or hundreds of replicas. Masters are made with a variety of techniques including 3d printing and traditional sculpture.

3D printing

We use 3d printing, otherwise known as rapid prototyping, as a production tool in prop making as part of the larger design process. Making masters for casting that require high tolerances and creating bespoke organic shapes.

Surface finishing

We offer spray and hand paint finishes to match your brand colours or to mimic material finishes like stone or metal. Creating the effect of a certain material is often required on projects where there are cost and time limitations. Combined with model making tricks of the trade almost any effect is possible.
