Speedy exit signage for Tetris film

Feb 25, 2021 | Print

Jasmine recently produced signage for a film-maker in under two hours following an urgent request.

The biopic Tetris is currently being filmed in Aberdeen, and the film-makers spotted English exit signs on the Tillydrone buildings being used as a 1980s Russian backdrop to the movie which stars Taron Egerton as Dutch entrepreneur Henk Rogers, who fought for the rights of the popular computer game.

Steve Clark, managing director, took a call from the film production company who needed the signs urgently after spotting English exit signs within the sight of the camera. Jasmine was able to assist, producing the replacement Russian signage within two hours.

He said “We often get last minute requests due to the capability of our print facilities here in Aberdeen as we can set-up and print very quickly. We have some of the best printing presses in Scotland, which gives us the confidence of a high quality, fast turnaround. Our operations are streamlined and our team experienced, which means jobs like this can be processed easily. Our signage capability has grown and grown, and we have been busy this last year providing COVID-19 signage although 1980s Russian was a little more unusual! We have produced signage and display materials for P&J Live and Aberdeen Sports Village, and we often produce materials in different languages but I think Russian signage for a film set was a first.

“The advances in digital print means we can print signage and display materials in very large and small sizes, economically. Jasmine’s print facilities have been supporting businesses in north-east Scotland and across the world for over three decades and we always love a challenge and to see new ideas coming through.

“Being able to deliver quickly, but not impact on quality, is key to the success of our business and we are dedicated to making sure every single job passes seamlessly through the various stages in our print factory.”
