Fashionably Trim

Fresh off our OCE printer are these full coloured digital prints— Novo's seasonal campaign. Stewie trims the girls into shape ready for installation. As fashion changes so do our signs.

A Swarm of Bee Site Signs.

Today we produced a swarm of Bee-site signs for DSE (Department of Sustainability and Environment).
These were printed on our OCE GT-350 flatbed UV printer, making them virtually vandal proof.

A Week in pictures at MSC

We had a big week this week, no different to any other week really; here is only half of what we got up to and that's not including the off-the-hook phone calls from clients requesting signs of all shapes and sizes. from top to bottom: The Queen Unseen Archive at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, go and see it! it looks amazing.Novo were after some more high-res digital prints for their seasonal internal displays.We also installed the new corporate id for 'The Art Gallery of Ballarat'Maple Street Early Learning Centre were after a couple of banners to let parents know that they were taking enrolments for their kindergarten.Melbourne Uni Student Union required a new illuminated cubed information sign, she lights up a treat.Palms Pharmacy- situated in sunny Coffs Harbour invested in seasonal promotion signage. Looks great!

The importance of colour

Colour is the first thing we register when we are assessing anything and we make an immediate response to it before anything else. Colour is one of the most effective tools that can be used to make an impact, and this applies to all aspects of what MSC have to offer. I have read that psychologists have suggested that colour impression can account for 60% of the acceptance or rejection of any product or service. Above is a swatch book of all different vinyl films. When considering giving your business a boost ask the friendly staff at MSC about getting a sign made that will make you stand out from the crowd. Visit our website for a more detailed look at what we can offer. In the meantime I'm off to take some more pictures to share with you.


Today we received a brief from the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) one of our many valued clients asking for routed directional signs as part of the roll out for the fire effected area's around Marysville. The routed signs were painted with an earthy orange coat of paint. The signs look impressive against a bushy green outlook.
To take into consideration the design team at MSC chose a font that was; clear, concise and legible—remembering that kerning is a very important element in producing beautiful typography. Bad kerning results in bad signage.

OCE Flatbed UV Printer

::MSC:: have joined the new wave of printing, with todays standards and high demands we certainly are ahead of the game. Since the purchase of our OCE 350GT UV flatbed printer with roll to roll printing on 1.6m wide flexible media business has never been better. Printing on most ridged substrates the 2500x1250 flatbed will complete a ripped job in no time, so you can only imagine the turn around. A wise investment to bring MSC signs into the forefront.
If it's quality you 're after look no further.
