Case Study: Jaguar Design & Print’s Stadur Love Affair

Jaguar Design & Print’s love affair with Stadur

When Antalis’s Andy Mansfield visited Basildon-based Jaguar Design & Print a few years ago to talk them through some new products in the Antalis range of rigid substrates, little did they know it would lead to a whole new opportunity for their business.

The company already ran a successful signage and print business, but when they saw a sample of Stadur VisCom Sign SF, it ignited a passion for the product that continues to grow.

Bespoke Stand Service

Impressed by Stadur VisCom Sign SF’s rigid but lightweight structure, they recognised that it could help them to expand their product portfolio to include bespoke stands for events and displays. From early trials, they have gone on to produce simple blocks and walls to more complex 3-dimensional structures for customers’ events and displays.
After first meeting with clients to understand their concept, Jaguar Design & Print will then explore the best ways to produce the stand, typically using Stadur VisComm Sign SF 10mm board. Once the client has approved the mock-ups and proofs, the printing and cutting process begins.

 

The Technique

They print the Stadur board on their Arizona 1260GT flatbed using UV inks. Once all the boards are printed, they are checked and trimmed to size. Wooden box frames are then made and bolted together to which the Stadur is then affixed.
A trial build is carried out before final installation of the stand to make sure everything is just right.
Jaguar Design & Print also have plans to experiment with Stadur VisCom Easyprint after being impressed with the product’s folding capabilities, adding even more scope to the stand options they can offer their customers.
