This is just the sort of thing that our Virtual HR region was set up for! We can come up with something good and feasible and the VHR/mods can help to steer it through the official channels. (It also helps that the manager I work with is responsible for a lot of the leaflets anyway - I have been helping to revamp some of them already!).

This is a great idea. :clap:

What the VHRs will do in the meantime is write to the powers that be at Kruger and see how they receive the idea as they need to approve all posters that are put up in the Park. I will cc you and your manager in on the mail EJ.

How about aiming really high? How about one in every unit of accommodation in the park?

And have you thought about sponsorship to cover some of the costs? Maybe Total or Sasol or Sappi, just a little logo at the bottom of the sheet?

Laminated of course - and I love the yellow border idea too!


While there is no real limit to what can be on a graphics level on the printing itself we have two main choices.
1) Printing on High Resolution paper and then laminating
This is the most costly method and while it offers a very high quality it has the drawback of being sensitive to light. It is mainly used for photographs and for a total protection costs go well beyond acceptable levels with posters loosing colour after 2 to 4 years.

2) Offset printing
A lot cheaper, gives brilliant colours and laminating is not needed. Costs are contained within acceptable limits and with unlimited lifespan.
The main difference is on the weight of the paper. In the first case you have a very thick, up to 400-450 gr poster while offset printing you'll get anything between 120 and 180 gr. The lighter the cheaper.

Most print, posters etc, are done using the offset system and considering the kind of poster and numbers needed it would be the best choice.

I have had a look at the market prices and would willing cover the costs of graphics and printing of anything between 50 and 100 offset posters 50 x 70 cm.
Biggest problems woould be
1) getting them to the VHR HQ
2) Distribution in all camps

EJ, can you give me an idea of approx number of posters needed?

Small prints:
A3 (29,7 cm x 42 cm) size prints would be the best size and printing would be easly done at acceptable costs.
Again transport, paper weighs a lot!, would be the main problem to see to.

Andy

The reason I suggested laminating is that I have seen what happens to posters with pictures on......the pictures quickly get torn off!

Will try to find out approx numbers needed.

I know what you mean EJ, I've had big posters pinched under my nose!

Get me some approx numbers and I'll work something out on my side.

I'll Pm you in a second on something that might interest you.

What about a combination of the poster idea with the one for car stickers?

DB seems that micheal367 doesn't like the idea of combining the two projects

What is the difference between this thread and the "Suggestion:How to increase awareness of Park rules/etiquette", which I have not read through :redface:
