We transport and deliver our giant tipis across the UK using custom built trailers as we’re carrying quite a unique load. Our trailers are made by Ifor Williams and customised for our purposes by the reputable GT Towing in Hatfield. As we’re limited to around 50mph with such a heavy and unstable load our vehicles and trailers provide the perfect slow-moving billboard for us to advertise on. We often get stared at by curious passers by, and to quench their curiosity we have got all our vehicles and trailers sign written. We’ve always used the experienced guys at Print-Force in Redbourne, Hertfordshire for all our vehicle and trailer graphics. Ever since we helped owners Mark & Tracy realise their dream tipi wedding in the small nearby town of Flamstead back in 2016 we knew there was a future for us working together.
Our resident photographer Ceri spent a few hours in their studio on the hottest day in quite a while last week to bring you an insight into the world of vehicle graphics. Check out his photos below!
The meticulous and precise task was performed by Ben who’s been working at Print-Force for a number of years. Initially he finalised the designs on-screen then used a cutting machine to create the decals. He then laid out the pre-cut designs on a flat table and then measured out where best to position them on the truck.
Then came the application of the decals. Using a combination of masking tape, a tape measure, a rubber scraper and a steady hand Ben whizzed through this part. It was clear he’d done this a few times before!
Look out for us on the road over the summer months, if you see us make sure you give us a wave!
