What We Do
For almost 30 years, Omni and sister company K2 Screen have worked extensively with galleries, museums and artists. We also produce print, graphics and branding for major corporate clients, event organisers and high-end fashion retailers.
We produce artists editions and one-oﬀ original artworks for internationally renowned artists and institutions. We continually invest in the latest equipment and our print capability is backed up by a team of experienced and
well-equipped installers, providing site surveys and installation across the UK and internationally.
LARGE FORMAT PRINT
From printing with archival pigment inks in up to 11 colours, to the latest eco-friendly Latex printers and incredibly versatile flatbed direct to media UV machine, we have the equipment and the people to deal with a multitude of print and display projects for indoor and out.
Our print capability is backed up by state of the art computer cutting machines and an experienced production team who ensure the perfect finish.
DIRECT TO MEDIA
Direct to Media UV Printing allows us to print on almost any surface up to 50mm thick. Our printer uses six-colour archival inks which are almost instantly cured on the surface using ultra-violet light; resulting in a long lasting, water resistant image.
The addition of white ink means that we can produce high quality, vibrant images on dark coloured media and create special effects on transparent materials such as glass or Perspex.
Materials: Foamex / Di-bond / Perspex / Wood / Glass / Leather / Vinyl / Metal / Foil
FINE ART PRINT
Sometimes known as Giclée, we prefer to call ours Digital Pigment Prints. With the latest technology and the highest resolutions, we can achieve exceptional results on a wide range of leading fine art papers including Somerset and Hahnemühle.
The twelve-colour, 200 year archival inks are also ideal for printing on to artist canvas which we can stretch for you using custom-made exhibition quality frames.
VINYL PRINT & CUT
We have the materials and resources to adhere graphics onto the trickiest of surfaces, from
conformable hi-tack vinyl on exterior brickwork and cobbled paths to ultra-peel vinyl on 300-year old limestone walls. Our vinyl meets even the most stringent of regulations and safety requirements and has been installed in numerous hospitals, Grade II listed buildings and throughout the London Underground network.
Vinyl cut is a favourite with galleries and retailers as it is simple, cost effective and easy to install. It is available in an almost endless range of colours and finishes and, with the latest computer cutting technology, we are able to swiftly turnaround lengthy texts, intricate patterns and entire installations on the largest of scales.
Applications: Signage / Retail Windows / Gallery Walls / Offices / Manifestations / Vehicles
Our wallpapers are printed in strips or drops which can create a repeat pattern or a single super-size image once installed. We have printed and installed a wide variety of wallpapers, vinyl and textured wall coverings in art galleries, stores, hospitals and corporate offices all around the UK and Europe.
The majority of our work is printed on PVC-Free Wallpaper, which has excellent colour quality and fine matt surface. The wallpaper can be installed quickly as it is pre-pasted and water-activated. It can be removed just as easily at the end of exhibitions without causing any damage to the walls.
From corporate identity and wayfinding to retail, galleries and fascias, we can produce and install permanent and temporary signage in any situation. Through working with many design companies and creative agencies, we have developed innovative ways of catching the eye and making an impact.
For giant graphic displays such as building wraps, we can print and weld five metre wide banners endlessly and employee specialist crew to rig them. We can print and install hoardings to disguise building works in progress, and produce giant fabric flags using dye-sublimation.
Materials: Acrylic / Foamex / Di-bond / Stainless Steel / Aluminium / Banner / Wood / Fabric
From the standard opaque matt and gloss through to the more exciting, specialist options such as mirrored, glow-in-the-dark, 3M Optically Clear and florescent. We have the materials and the latest equipment capable of producing full coverage window graphics all the way down to tiny stickers or decals.
Coloured translucent films can enliven office spaces, whilst frosted and one-way vision offer immediate privacy without blocking out natural light. We regularly produce and install full-colour, full-size window graphics for retailers and pop-up events, transforming glazed surfaces in to versatile graphic backdrops for brand engagement and visual merchandising.
CNC CUTTING & FABRICATION
Our versatile ESKO Kongsberg machine can cut, crease and shape almost any sheet or roll material. The precision computer-aided system and extensive range of tools ensures perfect results whether trimming wallpaper drops, milling sheets of MDF or perforating the creases on 3D cardboard sculptures. We love working on unusual and challenging projects – get in touch to see how we can help you.
Materials: Foamex / Di-bond / Wood / Card / Acrylic / Vinyl
MOUNTING & FINISHING
Even with all the technology we have available, there is still a great deal of hand finishing and mounting necessary to ensure the perfect end result.
We have extensive mounting, laminating and encapsulation services as well as a team of experienced finishers on hand to complete even the most bespoke projects.
We provide site surveys and installation across the UK and internationally. Our experienced and well-equipped team can be there just when you need them, and have been known to save the day right at the last minute. We work closely with some of the biggest galleries in London, high-end fashion stores, and even on London Underground with TfL.

Our experienced team are here to help with your project no matter how big or small. We provide a full creative artworking service and can take you from the initial design right through to proofing, printing and installation. Either send us an email or pop in to see us.
We can talk about your requirements and advise on the best approach, from a simple retouch to a tricky cut path. Unusual projects are no problem, we love a challenge.
Display Systems are the perfect reusable marketing material. Our range of display stands and systems have been selected for their quality, portability and impact. Whether a popular indoor roll-up banner, a flag or a large-scale outdoor backdrop, we can personalise them all with your branding to compliment any event or exhibition.
