Fyodor Golan approached us to help them produce invitations for the launch of their 2019 Spring-Summer collection. True to their progressive design approach, the duo had chosen a brand new material composed of 100% recycled plastic packaging. Using our high spec equipment we are able to work with a wide variety of materials. But we had never worked with this kind of recycled plastic before.
During the initial stage of the project we worked closely with the client to produce a series of samples. We experimented with different ways of working with the material such as laser cutting. However, it proved difficult to cut cleanly on the laser due to the different types of plastic packaging used to produce the material. We had much better results when testing it on our CNC machine. Eventually, we decided to use a combination of CNC routing and Laser Engraving to produce the final invitations.
