Anglian Water make a splash with our boards

Anglian Water
Which uses the least water – a bath or a shower?

When Anglian Water needed some props to attract the public’s attention, they came to photocutouts.co.uk.

H2OMG is an event run by the East Anglia water authority at The Forum, Norwich which aims to educate the public about water consumption in the face of population growth. It is also a free public consultation event where people are encouraged to make their views heard on how they want the company to spend its money and how they think the future of water use in East Anglia should look.

East Anglia is the driest region in the UK, so it’s a pretty important subject, especially with half a million new homes expected to be built in the region in the next 15 years!

H2OMG Anglian Water
Educating the public about fatbergs. Don’t tip oil and fats down the sink, people!

H2OMG is a really fun event with numerous fairground-style attractions, games and activities all centred around water and how we use and abuse it. Visitors can try their hand at the Water Wheel of Fortune or play Beat The Bog, where you throw beanbags into toilet bowls to bring the lids down and reveal fascinating facts about water use in the ‘smallest room’.

Here’s one of our boards in use in this H2OMG promotional video.

Anglian Water liked our photo cutout boards so much they also featured one in their blog.

We thought of suggesting a wet sponge throwing contest because our photo cutout boards are waterproof and perfect for that – but we decided not to because the emphasis at this event is on not wasting water! Anglian Water’s motto is ‘love every drop’.

Our colourful, high-quality photo boards are the perfect way to literally get people into your brand. The public can’t resist interacting with them and they appeal to all ages.

Giant cheques and speech bubbles!

Giant Cheques

giant cheques

Giant cheques are a essential marketing tool at charity fundraising presentations, award evenings, competition wins and sports presentations. We are now using our experience in making and shipping reasonably-priced face in hole boards to the giant cheque market.

Our giant cheques are made from the same stuff as our face in hole boards: durable, weatherproof, wipe-clean foamex PVC board. Its 3mm thickness makes it lightweight and easy to lift up for photos. We print them up with any logos, names, web addresses and hashtags the customer requests and ship them out quickly in time for your presentation event. We aim to provide the best quality and value giant cheques available in the UK.

They are available as a permanently printed version with your custom text, or a wipe-clean version to use time and time again. Just tell us what you need on the cheque and we will print exactly what you need.

The cheques come in 3 sizes: small (100cm x 50cm), Medium (150cm x 75 cm) and Large (200cm x 100cm). If you need a custom size, talk to us and we’ll do our best to make it.

Get in touch to discuss your requirements! Call 08450 570321 or email office@connectedshopping.com.

Speech bubbles

speech bubble props

Here’s a great idea for wedding photos: Funny speech bubbles to make people ‘talk’ or ‘think’. Spice up your wedding photos with either pre-printed bubbles or wipe-clean ones for adding your own comments in whiteboard marker.

The bubbles are made of lightweight foamex with a handle on the back so the hand holding them doesn’t show in photos. This makes them seem to float in the air like cartoon speech bubbles. They are approximately 30cm and have a matte laminated print finish to reduce camera flash glare and sunlight reflections.

For weddings, we can print a special personalised set with text and typeface of your choice. A set of 6 speech bubbles is just £35+VAT, so why not add an extra fun element to your photos?
