•August 29, 2015 • Comments Off on Join the commemoration for WW1 with the Woodland Trust
The Woodland Trust are good friend’s of ours here at Kingfisher and we recently worked on their WW1 commemoration signs. These signs were printed on wood to create a rustic and realistic look for their campaign. Not only are they great for the theme, they are durable and work well for the location and situation.
The campaign the Woodland Trust are working on involves the 100 year anniversary of the war and the initiative to plant more than a million trees to create four new Centenary woods across the UK.
The project will showcase the part women had to play in the war with a special stand at the Women’s Institute Centennial Fair. The WI was developed during the first world war so the most fitting tribute too. The Fair will be held during the 3-6 September and is the peak of the celebration of 100 years of inspiring women.
The event will feature a host of seminars and guest speakers, including BBC journalist Kate Adie. Kate is also championing our own First World War project in creating beautiful native woodland as a living legacy.

Here at Kingfisher we like to provide a solution to all requests, and with Polyart paper we are able to create a range of materials and products due to the nature of this unique synthetic paper. Polyart ensures that imagery and text is rich and vivid without extra preparation.
Polyart’s durable, tear, water and grease resistance allows this to be a versatile material for innovative ideas and projects. It has a smooth coat and finish with good opacity, it can be die cut and laminated to create your specific needs.
Just to name a few items that Polyart provides ranges from luggage tags, clothing labels, cookery books, maps, journals and games. The possibilities are vast and endless!
One of our customers, Ben Searle at Cycling Guides wanted to produce a guide for the Forest of the Dean. He found that Polyart was the best material for his product as it created a waterproof resistance perfect for use in the forest and adventures but also worked in the folding machine.
If you would like a sample of Polyart or would like to print with the material contact us now.
