Graffiti Street Art Of Creating Illusions

    Let's not get Carried Away!

    The Expand a Sign Product Development, Research and Destruction Team (think Mythbusters, but without the facial hair) were on a mission. We needed to test our Ex-Dome gazebo and Ex-Shade parasol umbrella against the harshest of weather conditions; extreme wind!

    Every product requires slight modifications and adaptations in order to develop the strongest, most durable item possible. And we were pretty confident that our Ex-Dome and Ex-Shade could withstand the best that Mother Nature could give us.

    After negotiations with Nasa Aeronautics and the top International Tornado Specialists (no, not really), we deduced that wind tunnels and turbines were not for us - we wanted to feel the icy grip of the sea winds and to taste the salty blasting gales. The bursts and gusts of the offshore air currents allow for the most accurate natural scenario possible.

    Our Ex-Dome gazebo superseded expectations. This 3m x 3.3m beast fared exceptionally well once we had it pegged down. With wind speed picking up to 20knots, the frame's gentle swaying was almost a disappointment for those of us who were expecting demolition and carnage.

    Next to be put to the ultimate test was the Ex-Shade parasol umbrella. We set 2 up, side by side. The umbrella to the left was an older model and the one to the right, the latest version.

    We were amazed that such slight, almost insignificant alterations to the frame have provided some really convincing results. Although we were setting up in absurdly strong wind, the new product stood firmer than the older model. Eventually, the older umbrella succumbed to the elements and a spoke popped out of it's spigot. This is easily fixed, but meant that our experiment was over.

    With salty lips, wayward hair and a sense of satisfaction, we piled up the car and headed back to base camp. 

    As always, we must advise that you use your grey matter when setting up any of our products in adverse weather conditions. Common sense is the best method in order to avoid damage to your products and yourself.

    Get your business On The Board!

    I must be honest; I really know very little about horse racing. All that I do understand is that I never win. When I bet on a horse, it inevitably turns into a 3 legged mange donkey once it leaves the starting gates. I also know that I always seem to be under dressed when I attend a race - even the jockeys sparkle in their satin ensembles. 

    Yet something still awakens in me each year, come July. Unmatched as Africa's greatest sporting and social event, Greyville Racecourse in Durban will once again attract more than 50 000 of the country's most dazzling, dashing and downright delicious for the R3 million Vodacom Durban July Horse racing Event on 31st July 2010.

    As they have for more than 100 years, the best of the continent's thoroughbreds will come together for the 2 200m clash from which one will emerge to join the esteemed that have dominated in Africa's greatest race. It is an eerie moment as all else pauses for just over two minutes whilst the 20 horses sprint around the course, the drum of their thundering hooves smothered by the roar of the frenzied crowd. As they flash across the line, a new champion will be declared as winner of the Vodacom Durban July. 

    The track and arena are fully dressed in the sponsors’ branding. From gazebos and parasol umbrellas to endless banners that wrap around the circumference of the track. Seen as one of the hottest events on the social calendar, the after party is always Durban’s ultimate party experience. Whether drowning your sorrows at your poor luck or throwing your winnings around in boozy bliss, the vibe itself is intoxicating.
    I have already designed my peacock-feather-inspired outfit for this weekend. I will also cleverly be placing small bets on each and every horse, just so that I can declare that I won. (I’m cunning, eh?!)
    I hope the odds are on me!

Ordering a Custom Temporary Tattoo For Your Business

    Promote your business, entice school spirit, raise money, drive support for a cause; there are many great reasons to get a custom temporary tattoo. While the choice to get a custom temporary tattoo is an easy one, how to order one and what to consider when doing so can be difficult.

    Fortunately, this article nails down the 5 elements you need to consider when ordering a custom temporary tattoo. Each element is simple and once you decide upon each you'll be well on your way to custom temporary tattoo success!

    5 Elements to Consider When Ordering a Custom Tattoo:

    1. The front design
    Since the objective behind designing a custom tattoo is to make an impression, you'll want to use your logo or well known symbol. Using a business logo works well for brand building and a well-known symbol is more likely to draw attention and spark interest.

    Simple enough; but there are a couple variations you can take advantage of to make your custom tattoos even more successful:

    • If you operate a website, incorporate that site's URL on the front of the tattoo with your logo.
    • For promoting a cause, start with a well-known symbol (like the pink ribbon or recycling symbol) and add the name of an individual or a meaningful date.

    By incorporating your website and taking advantage of a well-known symbol or business logo, you can ensure that you are making the most of every impression your custom temporary tattoos will receive.

    2. The back
    A little known fact is that the back of the tattoo is just as customizable as the front. Take full advantage of this by including the company address, website and social media information. The majority of promotional, custom temporary tattoos are kept as opposed to worn. People will take them home and throw them on the counter or on a desk or keep them at the office. This turns your custom temporary tattoo into a business card of sorts-but one that stands out.

    Information to include on the back of your tattoo:

    • Name of your business or organization
    • Website URL
    • Facebook & Twitter information
    • A coupon code or special offer

    3. Size
    The most popular custom temporary tattoo size is 2"x2". It's small enough that it can be applied and worn easily but large enough to accommodate contact information on the back. Plus, this is just the right size to fit into a wallet or pocket of a purse for easy transport to the home or office.

    4. White Effect
    When printing a temporary tattoo, there are 3 options regarding white ink: no white, spot white and flood white.

    • No White: any areas of the design without color will print without ink, so that the skin shows through those areas
    • Spot White: any areas of the design without color will print with white ink, so that that white ink-instead of the skin-shows through those areas
    • Flood White: white ink will be printed underneath the entire tattoo, making the colors look more brilliant once transferred to the skin because the layer of white makes the image more opaque

    Choosing the white effect for your custom tattoo depends upon your purpose. Do you want the tattoo to be applied to the skin or kept as a promotional product? For the latter, you'll want to go with either spot white or no white because that will look better on the tattoo paper. If it's more important that the tattoo look good once applied, then you want to choose flood white because, even though the tattoo will appear 'milky' on the paper, it will look great on the skin.

    Generally, for the purposes of promotional tattoos, no white or spot white is chosen.

    5. Quantity
    Lastly, you need to determine what quantity you will order. Ordering quality tattoos printed on a press using silk screening technology means a minimum order quantity of 1,000 pieces because of how the machines are set up to run. As with anything else, the more you order, the less expensive each tattoo will be. Most companies offer quantity discounts at 5,000, 10,000, etc. Typically, 1,000 custom temporary tattoos will cost about $90.

    So there you have it! The 5 elements to consider when ordering a custom temporary tattoo: design of the front and back, size, white effect and quantity. The custom temporary tattoo is one of the most inexpensive and unique promotional products, and outlining these elements also makes it very easy to order. Get yours today!Source URL:

Hot and Sexy Japanese Tattoo Designs For Females - The Best in Feminine Tattoo Designs

    Those who have a few tattoos probably know how hard and the time and effort it can take to find the perfect tattoo and the perfect design. It can almost be down right frustrating at times. It seems people are always wanting to find something that is different, unique, sexy and original. Well, right now is a great time to get a tattoo because the world of tattoo designs for women is growing at a super fast pace. In fact female tattoo designs are growing faster then any other segment of the industry. Thus has lead to a lot of new developments in tattoo designs for women. One of those is the use of traditional Japanese tattoo designs.

    The Adaption

    When most people think of Japanese tattoos and their designs images of the hardened Yakuza gangsters with full body tattoos comes to mind. yes for centuries tattooing was done in Japan on Yakuza and criminals. That is where many of the traditional and very beautiful designs came from. However, these designs have gone through a rebirth of sorts or a renaissance as of late. The designs have been taken apart and broken down and then brighter colors from new inks have been added in to make smaller, cute and feminine tattoo designs. For example the Koi fish was a very traditional Japanese tattoo for males. Yet many women are getting koi fish for the beauty and strength but they are not doing them on the whole back for the most part. Instead they are using bright colors of the koi fish and then adding in beautiful full color waves and splashed into a quarter sleeve design. The point here is one can easily take part of a much larger and more traditional design and adapt it to fit in a smaller and sexier area.

    Popular Themes

    There are a lot of very popular themes among Japanese tattoo designs. The symbolism and meaning behind these tattoo is very deep and rich and often embedded into the Japanese culture and religion. For those of us getting a Japanese tattoo here in the west it can be smart to find out about the meaning and symbolism of the tattoo before getting it inked on your body permanently. Here are some of the hottest and sexiest designs for females right now.

    Koi Fish

    Typically one would not think of a fish as beautiful. Unless of course you are a fisherman or love to eat fish. However, for the Japanese and many westerners the Koi fish represents the spirit of individuality and going against the norm or status quo. It is believed that koi fish typically swim back up stream to mate. Thus makes them very unusually int he fish world and an obvious sign of strength on their part. Therefore they can make for a wonderfully symbolic tattoo and design. Also with the new brightness in the inks available the water and gold of a koi fish really stand out.

    Cherry Blossoms

    Cherry blossoms are another deeply historical and symbolic for the Japanese. They are also seen as a thing of great beauty. In fact many Japanese will go and visit a local park just to see the Cherry Blossoms. However, they also represent the impermanence of life and how life like a flower can be very beautiful but also fragile.

    Finding An Artist

    Another very important thing to consider if you are wanting to get a sexy and feminine Japanese tattoo is the artist that is going to ink the work on your skin. You want to find someone who will not only listen to your ideas but also provide feedback and input to help you refine your ideas. It is also beneficial to try and find someone with background in Japanese tattoo designs. Thus they can help you understand the symbolism behind certain parts of the tattoo and certain designs.

    Sexy Locations

    Of course there are a ton of locations that are very sexy on a females body and also many areas that work well with a tattoo. Of course there is always the lower back design. There is also the front top of the hip, the foot, thigh and neck. Any of these places can easily be considered for a great looking hot and sexy female tattoo design.

    A really Fair Way to brand!

    The 139th British Open Championship was held this past weekend, with 27 year old Louis Oosthuizen winning the title by a massive 7 shots. And with millions of people watching each pitch and putt from their living rooms, the big brand names were definitely on display. 

    Expand a Sign also supplied branding at a golf event this weekend. We branded a hole where we set up an Ex-Dome gazebo, 2 Medium Flying Banners and a whopping big Ex-Up wind up banner. All of which was easily transported in one car.

    The Ex-Dome opens up to 3m x 3.3m but folds away to fit snugly in a medium-sized vehicle. 'The boss' and myself set up the products with ease. Within 15 minutes, we had not only erected our display but also the 2 Flying Banners for the clubhouse entrance and 2 Ex-Roll Banner Stands to be used at the reception area (with no huffing, puffing or cursing!).  Expand a Sign even provided 18 Pin flags and tee-discs for the golf day. 

    We went the whole hog here but we can also help you brand your golf day quickly, professionally and inexpensively. Use one or two well-placed banners or brand the whole course! What's more, you can re-use the banners and branding material year after year and from one event to another. 

    So, get in the swing of things and brand your business. Don't be left with a handicap - get seen and stand out from the crowd!
