WHAT IS LIVE PRINT?
Live print is a great way to add a unique element to your event. Not only is it an excellent opportunity to create an interactive experience for your visitors but it’s also a great way to get them involved in creating what will essentially be their own merchandise with your branding. The process is simple all you have to do is decide the designs you would like to be made available to print, the colours you want them printed in and what they’re going to be printed on. We do the rest including supplying all the necessary equipment and materials.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Katie StampDesigner / SODA
We found 3rd Rail very accommodating and fast to react. The set up looked amazing and the guys were very informative and helpful. We had three screen designs on the night, it was fantastic to see everyone so engaged with the printing and excited to be walking away with their own tote bag. I would, without a doubt, recommend 3rd Rail for any live printing event.
Jesse AudubeyBrand Communications Manager / Dalton Maag
We worked with 3rd Rail for the D&AD Design Festival held in the Truman Brewery this year and their support in setting up a live screen-printing activity was key to our success in the event. Their team advised us in planning our mobile booth layout, purchasing the right inks and paper for our budget, and they suggested refinements to our poster artwork which they reviewed and tested several times to make sure we would get the best results on the day. Their team also supported us throughout the festival including set up and load-out and they were brilliant with the festival-goers who printed over 1,250 A3 prints featuring our typefaces. Their enthusiasm was contagious, they shared their knowledge of the printing process with everyone who was curious and they also promoted our typography services every time our team was already chatting to attendees. We were very impressed with 3rd Rail, we'd recommend working with them for your live-printing event and we're looking forward to work with them again in the future.
Matt CreesDeputy Studio Manager / The Marketing Store
