Christmas board printing and graphic design for trains

It was a pleasure to collaborate with the East Lancs Railway and be involved with designing and printing new Christmas boards for their Santa Special trains.

To help brighten up the diesel locomotives we were asked to design and print large Foamex boards to be fixed to the trains. The Santa Special train is a very popular event, run every year by the East Lancs Railway, who are a steam train preservation society.

We modified a Santa image to keep the design in line with their branding and created a background. This was then printed this on Foamex board and custom cut to shape using our CNC controlled router. The East Lancs Railway staff were very pleased with the results and the boards have been very well received by the public.

This has been a great project to be involved in. We always enjoy graphic design projects and creating inventive solutions to meet the needs of customers, whether we are manufacturing new signage solutions or creating design solutions.
