Redblu, Lidl, Design
Thursday, September 13, 2018 - 14:35
Redblu Graphics & Displays were on hand on Sunday for a Lidl, Pick of Scotland suppliers' event in Stirling. Building the modular exhibition frame took just 2 hours!! '2 hours?' we hear you scoff, and again we can confirm, yes, the install of the frame was only 2 hours long! The reason for this is largely because Lidl had already purchased a large quantity of our T3 system, with the graphics to match, which they re-use at any opportunity, from the yearly Royal Highland Show to all in-house events. On the day, the install consisted of assembling 52.5m of graphic walling at... + continue reading

There are a number of precautions to be taken when applying vinyl to glass. Adhesion can be a problem in cold conditions, areas of high moisture, and where the glass has been cleaned with silicon based window cleaners. Use isopropyl alcohol to clean the window, and ensure the surface is warm before attempting application. With a wet application leave the graphics overnight before removing the application tape. Avoid covering the windows with large areas of dark coloured vinyl. The vinyl can cause prolonged heat absorption and retention and can cause the glass to crack or explode... + continue reading

Exhibition Stand Hire for Glow, Google and Microsoft at the SEC, Glasgow, Scotland We were approached by the UK's leading Education supply companies RM Education to help them with their exhibition stand for the Scottish Learning Festival at the SEC. It was an unusual shaped space only floor space. A backward L shape and with 2 of the world's leading companies Google and Microsoft on the same stand. A delicate case of keeping these competitors apart but keeping the stand together. We think the final stand design worked well, what do you think? T3 Modular Exhibition Stand... + continue reading

Loganair Limited is a Scottish regional airline founded in 1962, with its registered office on the grounds of Glasgow Airport in Paisley, Renfrewshire. Its tag line is Scotland's Airline. They approached Redblu to produce some checkin signs help direct their customers to the correct place. After initial discussions Redblu suggested the Unibox Totem units which fitted the bill well, but instead of using a 2 sided unit, to use a 3 sided unit which increased the stability. Once the first sample was produced we rolled out a total of 8 units and dispatched them to Sumburgh Airport, Shetland,... + continue reading
