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. These were framed and dressed on the walls of the bakery.

We can create newspapers from any country, from any period – we have been asked to do Norwegian and American recently.

Graphic Prop Make Motorway road signs

Acme Graphics can make replica road prop make signs with reflective vinyl exactly like the real thing. We can make them of cut vinyl, mount on foamex and attach to existing hired signage or we can make from foamex and give the edges a metallic finish to look authentic. Lights will reflect and kick off the official reflective vinyl – so they look real rather than looking like props. The signs have runners on the reverse to clamp onto signs on location – rather than with cable ties and black tack!

Prop UK Passport with Gold Foil Stamped Cover

We often get asked to make Graphic Prop Passports – we have the official UK stamp and permission to print the Front Cover of UK passports. It is often a lengthy process to get permission to get clearance to see a UK Passport on screen so we have created some generic inside pages. We have UK passport covers in stock. The Acme inside pages have been created to look like UK passport pages but details have been amended inline with National Archives website regulations on https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/documents/information-management/reproduction-british-passport.pdf
