Hollywood Monster fixes bottleneck

In order to accelerate its production, particularly on a major project with McDonald’s, Hollywood Monster has purchased a Zund G3 3XL1600.

The birth of the company in 2009 is a result of a merger between Hollywood Signs and Monster Digital, both of which go back decades. Hollywood Monster is widely known in the industry for its large-scale work such as built-up letter signage for major retail destinations, billboards, floor, window and ceiling graphics, construction project board signage and wayfinding.

In 2010, the scale of Hollywood Monster's printed output created a bottleneck in its finishing department, which at that time relied on hand-cutting processes. The company therefore looked to invest in a digital plotting table.

Mat Jephcott, operations director at Hollywood Monster, says: “We knew the name Zünd as the best brand out there so chose to install a Zünd G3 3XL1600, which has been great – very reliable.”

Hollywood Monster completes around one third of the interior graphics work for McDonald's restaurant refurbishments in the UK and Ireland. The new Zünd G3 L3200 is used almost exclusively for these jobs on wallpaper and interior signage.

Jephcott adds: “The contract with McDonald's has been in place for around four years but the new Zünd has enabled us to really open up the work. It's the same model as our existing Zünd but more compact, which is ideal for handling smaller rolls of wallpaper and vinyls while the first Zünd processes rigid boards.”
