Acme Graphics Newspapers used as dressing and props in Channel 4 drama Kiri

Acme Graphics create artwork and printing of old and new Newspapers. We print full newspapers using our library stock pages as fillers or we can work with clients who get permission from real Newspaper companies to made authentic newspapers for TV & Film. Channel 4 drama used real newspapers that we printed on “Kiri” a drama with Sarah Lancashire about an abducted child. The headlines blame the Father and are seen featuring in the drama throughout as the drama unfolds.

Current Acme Prop Make US Passport

Acme Graphics have added current US Passport to our Prop Passport Collection – either blank insides or Acme created generic graphics that “look like” a REAL US passport but do not need any clearance or permission as they are generic and meet legal guidelines of TV & Film Prop usage. All Acme Prop Passports have Gold leaf cover for authenticity.

Vintage Newspapers dressed on walls in The New York Bagel Commercial

As well as graphic prop newspapers Acme Graphics can recreate vintage, period Newspaper clippings. In the latest New York Bakery commercial, Acme created a selection of American Vintage newspaper clippings on aged paper to decorate the history of the Bagel Shop in New York.
