More action prop Graphics in League of Gentlemen

League of Gentlemen returned to BBC after a 19 year break. Critics have praised the return of the same characters from the original, set in the same town of Royston Vasey. The Actors look older but the sets had to dressed in the same way, while keeping up to date with the story line of the town being at risk from development. Acme Graphics were really pleased to help design some of the graphics for the three specials, aired at Christmas 2017.

Graphics for League of Gentlemen by Acme

Acme Graphics were very proud to be part of the new series of League of Gentlemen. The series included characters from the original series from 15 years ago. The sets had to be re-built to match the original series. We were asked to recreate the wallpaper design for The Dentons character’s set – working from stills from the 1990s original.

Acme Action Crisps

We get asked so many times if we can print foil crisps so we decided to invent a convincing Action Prop Crisp packet. Here is out latest invention. We think it looks pretty convincing. This design was used for Celebrity Get Me Outta Here – Bug Crispies!

Its a (car) Wrap!

Acme have designed the artwork for Van and car vinyls and this car wrap. Printed vinyl can be attached to all vehicles. Cut vinyl is also an option but if colours are unusual, printed vinyl can be the best option.
