AllSigns Visual Communications Limited was approached by KP Wilton & Sons - a Bristol-based building contractor - with a brief to create a stained-glass effect manifestation to be applied internally to the entire entrance of the newly-built atrium at St Patricks Catholic Church in Bristol.


The full project brief included external built-up stainless steel lettering along with a continuation of the stained glass window manifestation throughout the churches newly erected glass tower.


Following a period of extensive sampling and test prints, the company created a mosaic effect using multiple UV ink layering, printed directly onto a clear self-adhesive film on its EFI Vutek QS2 Pro, supplied by CMYUK. 


The Vutek QS2 Pro is a robust, production-level UV printer offering a wide colour gamut and ensuring maximum reliability and performance. Its in-line multi-layer print capability and greyscale technology with variable droplets allows designers the freedom to have maximum visual impact. 


In addition to the Vutek QS2 the company operates two Mimaki JV 33 wide format printers and a Zünd G3 cutting table. 


According to company director Graham Wood, CMYUK are considered far more than a supplier. “CMYUK are more of a partner than a supplier for us. The team’s after-sale support is second to none and has allowed us to maintain steady growth through technology in a very competitive market,” he says.
