3 Colour Printed Foils, Monopoly Revolution

Late working on Friday night to make sure the first colour had been applied to the foils and left to cure overnight.

The 1st colour was applied in Friday night

All the foils were stacked on the rack and left to dry

Full rack with 1st colour application

We start to apply the 2nd colour application on Saturday morning. Slight delay as the screen splits and we have to re burn. The second colour application takes a bit longer than the first as you have to line the first image up with the second. We started at about 10am and finished at 1pm. Lunch is on me today so it Doner Kebabs all round, hummm, healthy

The second colour has been applied

Whilst Dan and Myself press on with the foils Kevin gets to grips with the latex order

Kevin gets the latex print underway

 The 2nd colour application on the foils is now dry so they are removed from the drying racks

Looking good and ready for the last colour

The very last foil at 4.45pm to be printed

The acitate is pulled over to line the foil up with the screen

Finished, the last foil. Thats 500 foils , 3 colour application= 1500 pulls

Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.
