Syne Graphics were chosen by WaterAid to Project Manage, produce, deliver and install an Environmentally friendly print solution for their 'Water Heroes Exhibition', Kings Place London, 10th March 2020.
The decision was made to produce Free-standing Exhibition graphics from direct to print 16mm Re-Board material. Re-Board is the most environmentally friendly board of its kind. Re-Board contains no harmful components and utilizes water-based adhesives, meaning it can be recycled as paper. Being so lightweight, it also reduces the carbon footprint of transport. Re-board is a uniquely strong and versatile rigid paperboard. Its engineered fluted core allows Re-board to be cut and folded into any shape imaginable.
Seven Free-Standing Exhibition walls were produced in total ranging from 4.2m up to 12.2m wide and up to 3m in height.
