UK's largest ever PVC banner unveiled for Diamond Jubliee
A mammoth PVC banner, claimed to be the UK's largest, has been unveiled just in time to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Service Graphics' achievement, which measures in at an incredible 100 metres x 37 metres, depicts the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, in which she can be seen standing next to close members of her family.
Today (Tuesday 29 May) visitors in London can witness the spectacle, which also features the Queen's husband Prince Phillip, and her sons Prince Charles, Prince Edward, and Prince Andrew, from Sea Containers House, overlooking the Thames.
Printweek.com reports that the large format printing company had but a 15 day turnaround to get the banner printed, assembled and attached to the building; due to planning constraints.
Once the vinyl printers were fired up, Service Graphics constructed the banner in no less than 42 separate sections, before it was transported from the company's base in Chessington, Surrey, and attached to the 46 metre structure.
Scott King, sales director of Service Graphics, said it was a privilege to work with the Deerbrook Group, the real estate development firm which commissioned the piece.
He added: "This project represents the largest ever single graphic produced by Service Graphics and we are extremely pleased with the result," largeformatreview.com reports.
