In today’s age, it is imperative that we start putting the planet first before we lose it. We feel this strongly at Hollywood Monster, which is why we are working tirelessly to produce eco-friendly signage and be a fully sustainable business.
Sustainable Signage Materials
Sustainable signage materials mean materials that we meet our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs when it comes to producing signage.
Our UFabrik range has been a game-changer when it comes to being a sustainable signage business. This material is manufactured from plastic bottles, which are then cleaned, sorted and shredded into flakes. These flakes are then converted into pellets which are melted into extruded fibres and spun into yarn. From here, the yarn when woven forms the unique substrate of the UFabrik range. It is:
- Fully sustainable
- Suitable for a range of signage including wall coverings, hanging banners, display frames and canvas prints
PVC Free Signage Materials
As a wide format printer previously handling thousands of metres of PVC banners each week, we are committed to improving our sustainability. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is the world’s third-most widely produced synthetic polymer of plastic, and we are on a mission to banish its use at Hollywood Monster.
Our Kavalan range has revolutionised this mission, a material that is totally PVC free and clean. It has the same look, feel and quality as PVC and can also be welded, all whilst being environmentally friendly. Kavalan also weighs 50% less significantly reducing carbon emissions in transportation. It doesn’t stop at the production line, after products have been used, incinerating just one 3.2m roll of Kavalan can generate enough energy to power an iPhone for over 5 years.
A Range of Solutions
Sustainable Fabric Printing
Eco-Friendly Digital Fabric Printing
In order to be fully sustainable, we need to use eco-friendly printing machines as well as materials. With this in mind, we have invested in a 3.4m wide EFI VUTEk FabriVU inline dye-sublimation digital printer.
Using water-based inks, this printing machine allows us to print on a range of uncoated materials, opening the door to a vast and eco-friendly signage world. This digital printer joins our EFI VUTEk 5r, a 5m LED roll-to-roll printer installed in 2017 to back our investment into sustainability.
A Range of Sustainable Signage Solutions
We are continually working to find more sustainable signage solutions, and are proud to be offering a wide range of services including:
Eco-Friendly Event Signage
After successful trials, we found the perfect ECO alternative for our Westfield Bridge signage campaign. Our production and installation team worked around the clock to create a large hoarding display, measuring 240m x 4.5m. The display was all produced on our new fully sustainable range of materials, with water-based coatings and zero PVC content. This hoarding advertising display to promote the Ivy Park campaign is one we are proud of as sustainable pioneers.
