We pride ourselves on using the latest state-of-the-art technology. With extensive digital print elements incorporated into almost all of our signage services, Big Ideas has invested in high quality digital printing technology with full in-house colour controlled capability.

We are constantly upgrading equipment to keep us in the foreground of the printing arena with both software and hardware. Our digital team consists of experienced prepress operators, through to specifically trained machine operators. For every signage project we offer the most cost effective solutions to suit your application.

Big Ideas is endorsed by 3M New Zealand to achieve MCS standard digital graphics to the highest quality and provide up to a 5 year warranty. All of our applicators are 3M certified.

Our large format digital printers print on almost any substrate, format and size, in both solvent and latex inks to suit the application. In essence certifying we have the right mix to match your printing, design and functional needs.

Staff training

To make sure that you receive the best possible advice and results, we invest in ongoing training for our staff. Account and Project Managers attend product seminars with our various suppliers and often spend time on the floor with our tradespeople, to ensure they have hands-on experience and can confidently advise our clients.

Our applicators are qualified either through the 3M Applicators Certification program and Big Ideas apprenticeship programs, both of which are recognised throughout the industry. These programmes require a four year commitment in order to graduate as a Professional Signmaker.

All of this means YOU can be confident that when dealing with Big Ideas you’ll receive the best possible advice, and that we can back this up with an experienced production team.
