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.

Acme were part of the 50th Anniversary of Big Mac Commercial for Mcdonald’s

Acme Graphics were asked to step into history with Mcdonald’s Big Mac. There were some retro Rockabilly Gig posters posters in the background while Rockabilly’s eat Big Mac’s. See our fictitious bands Blakey and The Heys posters in these stills from the commercial.

Mcdonald’s Celebrate 50th Anniversary of the Big Mac

The latest Mcdonald’s commercial celebrates the 50th Birthday of the Big Mac. We were asked to make some graphics to illustrate the shoot through the decades of 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. We made some carrier bags, van graphics, tax discs, and a backlit menu.

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.
