Kings Lynn Museum

We were approached by Realm Projects to work on a new museum being launched in The Old Gaol House, King’s Lynn.
This unique project came with a set of interesting challenges that required us to think creatively and use a variety of exciting techniques and materials to produce stylish visual solutions throughout.
The large rear graphic panel was printed direct to opal acrylic with a front-section printed to a laminated MDF board that was finished with flame polished, white acrylic numbers, all of which was illuminated with low-voltage LEDs to add a stylish sense of depth.
The project incorporated a wide range of direct print applications – including Dibond and pre-laminated MDF boards. Panels and doors were wrap-mounted and printed G-Floor was used to showcase an old trading map of what was historically known as ‘Bishop’s Lynn’.
The printed G-Floor was installed to fit flush with existing carpet tiles, giving a hard-wearing finish; perfect for the giant merchant trade activity floor.
All prints were run at 1000dpi to achieve the highest quality finish, which proved more cost-effective and practical than the conventional and expensive option of Lambda printing.
The biggest challenge was to find an innovative solution for producing specialist museum graphics that would not harm irreplaceable, historical and delicate artefacts and would perform within a controlled environment.
This technical knowledge and attention to detail is where MX leads the way. Our specialist team worked tirelessly, testing specific inks and materials to deliver the perfect solution, which set new standards and pushed our creativity even further.
With over twenty years experience producing specialist printed graphics and signage for installation, our practical knowledge and expertise is recognised both within the the UK and further afield, for delivering the highest level of end-to-end service and quality.
