Creative World 2018 : Craft and Fun for all Seasons !

For the Airplac® team, Creative World is all about expressing imagination. Every year we try to amaze everybody who visits our stand. In January 2018 we designed the stand around the theme “Craft for all Seasons”. It was a complete success in that almost every visitor took photos and commented on the wealth of ideas.


All the walls of the stand were covered with special Silver foam board panels and the 26m² looked double the size. Centre-stage was an enormous Box pallet - 2m50 x 1m50 x 1m30 in dimension. The 4 side panels with the lettering “Craft for all Seasons” were designed by Design Studio TRUC in Paris and showed all the Fun that can be had and communicated with our new Airplac®CREATIVE panel. (Three of the side panels were reserved by Customers who wanted to replicate the ideas in their Showrooms). On top of the box pallet, we presented amusing DIY creations that were that were made by our local artist, Régine Chaptal. (Click here for more information about Airplac®CREATIVE).


Our street-art partner, La Coulure collective in Lyon, joined in the fun by painting a series of panels on the 4 season’s theme and designing and painting a beautiful work of art to hide an ugly pillar on the stand.


We met many loyal customers and made new friends at the Show. Many thanks to all who participated and looking forward to seeing you again next year.


Do you know someone who dreamed of a foam board that they could draw on with markers or paint on with acrylics? Someone who wondered if there was a board that they could cut into different shapes and make rounded edges for artistic shapes? Yes everyone who wondered where they could find something that would be more robust than a sheet of paper and more rigid than a canvas has now got a solution at hand. The Airplac® team, specialists in traditional foam boards have invented a new Fun Board called: Airplac®CREATIVE.



Airplac®CREATIVE is a lightweight panel with a plastic surface that cuts easily with a cutter and even with a hot wire cutting tool. Rigid and robust, it is perfect for DIY and decorative activities. Its smooth surface is good for acrylic paint and all types of markers. As it is waterproof, it can be dunked or floated on aquatic surfaces – just be careful to use waterproof inks if you want a floating sculpture.


Airplac®CREATIVE is an extremely versatile solution for people who want to paint, draw, cut and create things. The 50x70 cm size can be cut to smaller sizes or two or more panels can be stuck together to make a bigger panel if that is what’s called for. Our local artist, Régine Chaptal, was completely taken by our new Fun Board and told us that it really inspired her DIY works on the 4 seasons theme. Click here to see photos of some of Régine’s creations.


Airplac®CREATIVE :

a new fun board for DIY and painting enthusiasts

Communiqué de presse, le 29/05/2017

FESPA 2017 : The Airplac® stand was a Show-stopper with its eye-catching and intriguing décors…



As ever, the Airplac® team participated in the FESPA trade show. The FESPA is the biggest international event for wide format covering both silk screen printing and digital imaging.



The Airplac® brand launched 3 new rigid foam board substrates. Airplac®PLASTIMO, which has very qualitative print results. Airplac®FIXTIC is a self-adhesive panel with excellent dimensional stability, and Airplac®CARTRIGE is an extra-rigid panel with a very good price / performance ratio.


The stand was devoted to creating a New-York atmosphere with colourful sophisticated decors. Visitors appreciated the printing and the cutting quality of our panels. Some decors had strips of led lights inserted that flickered with multiple colours. Visitors noted that the Statue of Liberty  - more than 2 meters high- kept its shape all during the trade fair. A trio of ladies with hand bags, printed recto-verso and with printed high and low pedestals to create a 3D effect: a really stunning visual impact. No wonder that the early bird customers grabbed at the chance to have these decors sent on to them for their showrooms.

Many thanks to the Lipps Pro printers in Lyon for the great job printing and cutting these décors on their Arizona printer and Zünd cutting machine.


Let’s rendez-vous in May next year, in Berlin, for the 2018 FESPA.
