Crazy ideas brings awesome projects. Regulation Basketball boards are usually made of acrylic, but many times wooden ones can be found. This means we can custom made blockmount and screw the hoop on. After i grabbed the dimensions off a NBA regulation board, modified it for better fitting and designed accordingly.
Bought a standard hoop and resprayed it purple.
Included LED strips for the back board.
Last but not least...
LED stripped installed and mounted on the wall.
We are very happy to announce that for one more year we will attend the Cyprus Comic con 2016. We recently got or confirmation, but we have been working and preparing for Comic Con for the past 4 months.
In the bottom image you can see our booth location, where you will find us both days in September 3rd and 4th.
What can you expect?
This year we are coming with even more blockmounts; Over 200 blockmounts and over 400 coasters. We have also experimented with metallic paper, and the results are AMAZING. When you visit our booth, make sure to ask for the metallic prints. Also we have a very special surprise we have been working long hours that will be unveiled soon.
Last month a client came to me wanting to make a spider man clock. He requested a specific size of 55cm diameter and provided with the image shown below. For this project a specialty clock had to be ordered. A high torque quartz clock from UK with 25 CM minute hand.

Last night i visited a long term client of Fingerprint Blockmountings. Philippos Stavrou Platini is the owner of Michel Platini museum in Mosfiloti. A small tavern that in the long running years has collected a vast amount of sports memorabilia regarding the French player, Platini.
After enjoying an incredible meal, he showed me some DVDs that he was on made by several European channels. Walked around looking at his collection, he opened a door hidden behind posters. It was a small room where all 4 walls were covered by Blockmounts, more posters football jerseys, Platinis suits, cups, medals, fan collections. It was incredible to see all these stacked so closely in one place.
As i make my way around the room he tells me that he has a second room just next door. We make our way outside to visit the second room where more blockmounts cover the walls. Large stacks of blockmounts still on the floor, due to lack of room.
Today the museum holds near 1000 blockmounts. This number grows every week with our proud support of Philippos Stavrou Platini.
Blockmounting has been in Cyprus from the 80's. My father had a shop on Bouboulinas, under the old EAC (Electricity Authority Cyprus) called Mandala. His major work was on framing, but he used to blockmount at the same time.
I am a huge fan of Bethesda Softworks. Fallout series were the games that i followed and played as soon as they were released. Skyrim for me, was an epic success; Its sand box game play was brilliant. Fallout 4 on the other had, is possibly my favorite game so far.
I wanted an art piece of fallout 4 on my wall. Even though i love the power armor poster, i loved the Nuka Cola posters even more. I love their Coke implementation and i was always a fan of Pinup drawings. Next step is collecting the rest of the in game posters.
The result is amazing. It changed the feeling and look of the room. All i need now is 8 Finger Pull Knobs to avoid drilling through the image and this project is complete.
