Large format signs : Banners & Posters: ANZAC DAY
This year for ANZAC day we assisted Yarra Trams with two productions. In the first project we produced a series of posters for the Melbourne Tram Museum in Hawthorn. In the second project we produced large format signs in the form of Vinyl Banners. These banners were produced for the Anzac Centenary. We then installed them at tram stops close to the Shrine of Remembrance.
The Tram Museum posters were part of the Tramway Anzacs. They honoured 538 of the Melbourne tramway employees who volunteered for military service in World War I. They also paid tribute to the 86 who died in the conflict. From the unique perspective of the tramways the exhibition looks at how the war affected Melbourne, the employees who served and the importance of the tramway system during the war.
It’s also interesting to note that Melbourne was the capital of Australia during wartime.
In the first project, we produced eight A1 posters. We produced them in a very short time frame to make sure they were delivered on time for this important display. We printed them in CYMK with UV cured inks on a matte 250gsm paper.
Certainly, the Tram Museum is a great place to visit with the family. You can wander through the various trams from the past 150 years. Experience a piece of Melbourne history guided by well informed staff who can give you insights into the tramway’s past.
In the second project we produced a series of large format PVC Banners. These banners decorated the Domain Interchange and Arts Precinct tram stops near the war memorial along St Kilda Road. We printed them and then we installed them late at night ready for the launch the following day.
As a result, these large format vinyl banners were extremely effective. They stood out amazingly well along such a busy thoroughfare.
In conclusion, we are proud to be a part of these Yarra Trams initiatives and commemorate our fallen ANZAC heroes.
Lest we forget.
“With a combination of great staff and technology the project was completed without a hitch.” explains Garry Barnett, Managing Director here at Barneys.
“Yarra Trams are an important client and we often do installations that run through the night to meet their customer needs. At Barneys we have evolved into more than just print managers or signage suppliers but have developed more into problem solvers and solution providers.
We understand you can’t rest on your laurels when technology is so accessible and the competition is so high. I’m proud of the work we did in collaboration with the fantastic team at Yarra Trams and look forward to the same again next year.”
