ABSOLUTE Graphic Limited now ventures into the manufacturing of 3 Dimensional signs, letters, and logos thanks to the latest installation of its laser C02 cutting machine.
Peter Kennedie Bubulu, Graphic Designer and General Manager of now Absolute Graphic Limited (AGL) Signs and Memorials told Sunday Isles that the idea to venture into the 3 Dimensional (3D) signage manufacturing business comes following the arrival of his new latest laser machine this year.
“This means that Absolute Graphic Limited would become the first local business in the country to produce 3D signs from acrylic signs to channel letters for local customers.
“The reason to venture into such 3D signage business in our domestic market is that I understand that local cooperate companies have often ordered their 3D signs from oversea countries,’’ Bubulu said.
He said that the material he used to produce his 3D letters is acrylic glass which he described as the best for his new laser machine.
“The best material for my laser machine is Acrylic glass. I usually cut the 3D letters accurately, then I cut its backing with Polyvinyl chloride or PVC.
“Both two materials go well together with led lighting during the day and night time when we turn on the lights.
“Using 3D aesthetic lettering for the logo allows the logo to stand out both indoor and outdoor,” he said.
The Honiara resident from Forau Village in Ata, Northern region of Malaita province is a local sign writer turned entrepreneur in the business of designing and manufacturing headstones in the country in 2019.
His business formerly specializes in the design and creation of quality custom-built headstones, memorials, plaques, grave markers, and monuments, and this year into manufacturing of 3 Dimensional signs, letters, and logos.
Peter’s dream of setting up the business began 20 years ago and that is to provide an avenue where people can purchase headstones for their loved ones at a lower cost rather than importing from overseas.
Peter attains his tertiary education in New Zealand and has graduated with Bachelor in Graphic Design (BGD) from the Auckland Institute of Technology.
