Happy Canada Day!

Three Dimensional Coat of Arms – Corrugate

Canada is a special place. It is our home and where we have chosen to build over 25 years of Retail POS Production. Over the years, we have established friendships with clients from all over the world. What we are constantly told, is how much they enjoy doing business with Canada. That never ceases to put a smile on our faces. It makes us proud.

To be Canadian is more than a passport to the world. It is an obligation to live up to the standards that are expected of us by our customers and our suppliers.

A Classic Approach to POS

This year, we challenged our design and production teams to go beyond a traditional expression of Canadian Pride and take it to another level. The result is a three dimensional interpretation of the Canadian Coat of Arms. Check it out:

(Video) The Power Ball XX: Carousal – Giant Archway Entrance – The Power Plant

Making a dramatic entrance

Every now and then a print production project comes along that really captures our imagination. This was one such project:

powerball-xx-giant-entrance-print-production-blog-proprint-richard-krakower

Entrance Archways are an imaginative way to take an event to the next level.
The Powerball is an event like no other, so it required something extra-special.
– Something larger than life.

Proprint was asked to help on this project for 2 reasons;
The first –  Their 25+ year reputation for large-format print production and swift turn around.
The second – Their love and support of the Arts.

Proprint was founded on creative expression. They don’t just like art. They love it!

Fully Equipped for Fun

The endless amount of accessories that have come out for Nintendo products over the years is no doubt a testament to the companies creativity. It sent a message to gamers everywhere that Nintendo was interested in discovering new imaginative ways for people to play their games. You name the accessory, Nintendo had it.

Now it seems Nintendo is putting a spin on their accessory loving past, and taking product accessories in a whole new direction with the announcement of the new Nintendo Labo. The Nintendo Labo contains interesting features only seen thus far within Point of Sale development studios as well as other retail focused developers – and we here at pop-online.com love it! It is fantastic to see the power of dieline expanding and now finding its way into the games of our kids.

Mondelēz Holiday POS 2016

Festive retail point of sale displays

The Holiday Season is an exciting one. Retail stores try to keep pace with the needs of their customers, and brands try to stand out amongst the vibrant colours and messaging. This is a very competitive time of year, that requires a thoughtful approach.

This year, Mondelēz has focused their attention on the magic of entertaining. Their displays feature a handful of engaging recipes that are selected to evoke curiosity and engagement. Proprint was tasked with the design and production of this series.

The gingerbread before the frosting

The structural design team created a custom double bookcase header and side panels to add festive flare to existing POS displays. As part of their usual approach, each component was designed to be easy to assemble.
