St Martin’s Pre-Primary Goes Wild at PrintWild

 

The office was buzzing with excited sounds as the Gr R students from St Martin’s Pre-Primary joined us on a school outing to see a printing shop in action!

The children at St Martin’s have been learning about photography this term. When their teachers reached out to us and asked if they could have their term 1 school excursion at PrintWild, we were more than happy to host them. We took great pride in influencing the next generation of photographers!

The tour started with a fantastic demonstration from our expert framer, Bungee. He showed them how we prep and frame from scratch. To make it extra personal, we took a beautiful Matte Fine Art print of their school and printed it to be framed. The children and adults alike were fascinated by the amazing attention to detail as Bungee measured and cut the matt board, glass and frame profile. 

  Once completed, we gifted this framed print to the teachers to take back to school with them after the outing.

What is a trip to PrintWild without seeing where all the action takes place? The children were wowed by the framing process, and then got a chance to witness the editing process. This was demonstrated by our Pro Photographer and editor, Paul Senior. He demonstrated how he takes images and edits them to make them absolutely perfect for print – every time! This was a great opportunity for the children to see how computers and technology have enhanced the world of photography and printing.

Onto the printers – and they certainly did not disappoint! The children compared the size of a normal home printer to our powerful and impressive industrial printers that are able to print massive images – even big enough to create printed wallpaper!

We then took a walk through the factory and the Gr R children were treated to a demonstration of how we stretch and frame our Canvas prints and mount our well loved Faceblocks

The most exciting part of the excursion was right at the end. We asked the children to be honourary PrintWild team members and finish off a batch of VERY important Magna Tots. Using photos we had taken over a few days at their school, we made each child their very own photo magnet (affectionately called ‘Magna Tots). They then each added the final touch before heading home – sticking the magnet on the back! The looks on their faces were priceless! We overheard many excited ‘That’s a photo of ME’ while they enthusiastically put the finishing touches on their Magna Tots.

A few days later we were surprised with the sweetest ‘Thank You’ note. It came in the form of delightful pictures drawn by some of the children who spent the morning with us. Thank you St Martin’s Pre-Primary for joining us for a fun morning at the PrintWild offices!

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
