  • Artcraft commissions first Digital Printer for Permanent Traffic Signs in Victoria

    Durst-Printer-VIC1 (2)As part of Artcraft's significant investment in capital equipment upgrades throughout the Group, Artcraft Melbourne have recently installed and commissioned the first digital printer for production of permanent traffic signs in Victoria. The Durst printer uses 3M UV cured inks combined with a clear over laminate to produce permanent traffic signs backed by 3M's full 12 year sign replacement warranty.

    Along with a refresh of our Branding, we have invested in new production equipment in a drive to improve Artcraft's service levels and manufacturing capacity to better serve our valued customer base. These improvements are currently underway in Sydney, Townsville, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne. The installation of the Durst UV Digital printers will improve quality and our response times for lower volume sign requirements.  This technology is widely accepted and built into the State Governments Sign Manufacturer specifications as well as carrying the full 12 Year Sign Replacement Warranty.

  • End Of An Era

    Ron Walton, one of Artcraft Victoria's trade qualified screen printers has retired bringing an end to a long 49 year career at Artcraft. Ron started as an apprentice screen printer with the company in 1965, printed millions of signs since and can now sit back and enjoy his retirement, fishing to his hearts content!

    A man of few words, Ron had a fantastic work ethic and will be sadly missed in the Victorian operation. A passionate AFL Geelong Cats supporter, Ron was driven to despair over the losses of four grand finals between 1989-1995 but came to life (and as many fellow employees noted), that the smile could not be wiped from his face when they finally won the flags in 2007, 2009 and 2011.

    Pictured below, Ron after being presented with a custom sign made by Artcraft especially for the occasion, signed by all staff members.

    Management and staff wish Ron all the very best on a long and relaxing retirement.


     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • Artcraft Assists Government

    On the back of a lot of good lead up work over the last twelve months by long serving Brisbane Key Account Manager, Greg Wruck, Artcraft had the opportunity to demonstrate an LED enhanced Low Bridge warning sign to senior representatives of both Local and State governments at a media photo shoot recently.

    The product in question will be part of a joint Brisbane City Council, Department of Transport and Main Roads and Queensland Rail roll-out of Low Bridge warning signs with solar powered flashing amber beacons. The project is an excellent example of the intertwining business units now operating out of the Brisbane offices with Artcraft’s traditional Brisbanlowbridgeahead-completede Branch leading the sale and producing the sign faces, Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) supplying and installing the electronic and solar powered technology to the faces and Streets Ahead Maintenance (SAM) installing the final product on site.

    Building off of the success of the Enhanced School Zone Signs Project, ITS Project Manager, Christian Bow, couldn't resist the opportunity to pose with Brisbane City Council Deputy Mayor, Adrian Schrinner and Queensland State Government Minister for Transport and Main Roads, the Honourable Scott Emerson.

    Minister Emerson said that he was very happy with the success of the school zone sign project to date and confirmed the government’s intention to continue the roll-out over the next financial year and hopefully beyond.

  • Artcraft's "New Look"

    Signage1-Entry-Only-Large Signage2-Office-Entrance-Large Signage3-Reception-LargeOver the past six months Artcraft have been implementing a number of changes throughout the business with the focus on better service, delivery and communication to our customers.  Recently we launched our new website to provide the market with a comprehensive reference point for all of our products.  We will continue to build on this and add new product releases as they happen.

    To signify the changes in our business, Artcraft are also rebranding.  The new logo is not dissimilar to our old one.  We have modified it slightly to reflect our vision of being modern, professional and uncomplicated to deal with.  This brand has already been implemented throughout the website and various sales and marketing literature.  The next stage is to roll it out through all of our branches which will happen over the coming months.

    Many customers are unaware that we can offer commercial signage for buildings and the like.  Artcraft have the expertise to assist your business if you are looking at rebranding from concept through to completion.  We have the latest digital print technology and can reproduce any image you require in the highest quality.  Simply give one of our team a call on 1300 765 653 or contact us through our website.
