KPOP turns mean and moody

KPOP turns mean and moody
High Stakes Creative has completed what it called a ‘monster job’ for the KPOP Korean restaurant using Drytac ReTac wall graphics media.

Matt Matthews has been in the sign industry for 24 years and started High Stakes Creative in 2007, specialising in the design, production and installation of branding, signage and graphics for commercial and architectural applications. This includes everything from large-format printing and fleet graphics to complex wayfinding and corporate identity systems.

This summer High Stakes Creative took on a major project for KPOP’s new Korean barbecue restaurant location, a stylish monochrome design influenced by K-pop music that involved channel letter signs and 576 sq.metres of wall graphics, printed on Drytac’s ReTac.

“This project was the second time we worked with this client – they had us print and install a similar graphic package in another location last year,” said Matt. “They loved it so much, they more than quadrupled their request on this location. The installation took place over the course of several trips with four other installers. I personally installed 3,500 sq.feet myself.”

Drytac ReTac Smooth 150 is a 150μ (6 mil) white polymeric printable PVC film coated with ReTac ultra-removable adhesive technology, which allows graphics to be installed, removed and repositioned easily. Available in Gloss and Matte finishes and certified with several fire ratings, ReTac Smooth 150 is ideal for wall graphics in spaces such as restaurants.

Matt continued: “We chose ReTac because it is a thicker film with repositionability that allowed for an easier installation. Most of the panels were 4.3m tall, so having that repositionability was key. Also, having a 6mil material enabled us to avoid lamination in areas that wouldn’t get frequent abrasion.”

He added: “I love ReTac – I’ve continued to use it as my go-to for a majority of my wall graphic applications. Each time I’ve made a request to Drytac, I’ve been met with the thorough answers and professionalism that helps me get my clients what they need in a timely manner.

“I’m really keen to use other Drytac products too. I just haven’t yet made my way through the long list of what’s available!”
