Manchester, United Kingdom, (15th December, 2011) – Leading wide format printer, The Image Group of Manchester, have created innovative fabric banners for a leading North West business by combining their skills with the latest in fabric printing technology.

The Image Group was approached by FBI (Flexible Business Interiors) to help transform and revitalise the new offices of Madhouse Associates, one of the North West’s foremost integrated marketing communications agencies. The Image Group were asked to provide various solutions for the new space, but their twisted fabric banners required some clever problem solving and a state of the art fabric printing process. A collage of Madhouse’s work was printed direct to flagmesh using their dye sublimation process for deeper colours, brighter hues and sharper images.

There is an ever increasing demand for printed fabrics due to their green credentials, amazing colour reproduction and pin sharp detail. The Image Group has invested in the latest cutting-edge printers and dye sublimation techniques, and has built up a vast range of bespoke fabric products for use in exhibition, retail units, point of sale attractions and general display such as Customised Tablecloths and Marquees.

“This project for Madhouse Associates gave us the opportunity to use the latest printing ink and technology to create stunning new printed fabric graphics,” a spokesperson for The Image Group commented. “Fabric banners are hugely popular for a vast range of applications, particularly in business advertising at exhibitions and in public spaces, so we feel it is important to keep trying new techniques and delivering fresh, innovative designs. Of course, listening to the client’s unique requirements and ideas is vital to ensure the finished result is as effective as their needs demand, which is what helped to make the Madhouse Associates project such a success.”
