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.

James Corden with Acme Graphics Licence Plate on his Confused Car

James Corden is well known as the face of Confused.com commercials in the classic Mercedes with the memorable Confusd Licence plates. Acme Graphics made these graphic prop licence plates. We used car filler on foamex, sanded and car sprayed the prop then added vinyl lettering to create a plate with profiled letters.

Large period prop book

We were challenged by the request to design, print and make a large Medieval style religious book for Todd Margaret series 3.

The dimensions had to be 15 inches high, 12 inches wide and 4 inches deep, far larger than any production print book to wrap around.

We bought a few large atlases and guillotined down the pages to a uniform size and bound them together. Printing our design onto parchment paper, with a blue leather cover and gold vinyl produced surprising results:
