Spicers NZ delivered some of their new sign & display range to try out … Xanita’s “X-Board” to be specific.
My first thoughts were to make some kind of display or table. I then realized that creating Stanley the sheep and some trees would be way more kickass!

Xanita’s in-house team recently designed a flat-packable IPad stand for a client, which will allow the client to brand the stand and re-use it multiple times over. Check out the below video
A combination of diverse skills, talent and experience from various disciplines taught at AUT University contributed to the stage props on this year’s “We Can Create” stage. Michael Grobelny, Anthony Cribb and Nick Redwood designed and created a stage centre piece using Xanita’s X-Board Print. Their work for “We Can Create” consists of a series of four concentric spheres created by the interlocking of multiple planar components – the largest measuring 2.4 metres through to the smallest at 0.8 metres. Some were suspended while others sat on the ground and were internally illuminated with programmable LED lighting which worked to showcase the structure of the objects.A prototype lamp was also designed using X-Board – as a practical addition to provide lighting for the interview area – and to create a material connection between the spheres to the rest of the stage design. After initial concept and design consultation with the
We Can Create” team, the spheres and lamp were digitally modelled by Michael in AUT’s 3D lab and then output to the Lab’s CNC router and laser cutter for prototype generation.
Once all the logistics were finalised it was off to Poster World for the final X-Board panels to be CNC knife cut for assembly and back-lighting on stage. We are very proud to be part of such a collaboration with AUT and Poster World and needless to say, the striking spheres made a huge impact on stage and were a talking point amongst both speakers and attendees.
Sculptural forms made from silhouetted layers of white sustainable X-Board create natural elements — trees, stone formations, and a forest path. The exhibit is constructed of Xanita recycled post-consumer and 100% re-pulpable materials, light weight boards, and contains no formaldehyde, toxins or wax.
After the event, most of the fixtures will remain in their current space, converting into Bendel bookstore fixtures as well as for the retailer to use for future exhibit rentals.
Edcon (Pty) Ltd, a leading clothing, footwear and textiles retailing group in South Africa, selected X-Board for an in-store visual merchandising display at Legit clothing, located in Canal Walk, Cape Town.Large, three-dimensional letters were cut from X-Board and the edges were painted white using standard water-based paint.
The lightweight word cut-outs were speedily installed on-site, by simply arranging them above the clothing racks in the store- a perfect example of a stylish, hassle-free and eco-friendly short-term retail display.
In keeping with the World Cup spirit, giant soccer balls made from printed X-Board, were manufactured for the Woolworths head office. The lightweight structures were printed, flat packed and then erected on site with minimum hassle and disruption to trade.
The soccer balls serve as a great example of how X-Board can be used for seasonal point-of-sale display.
Boards are simply recycled when no longer in use.
Retailers can now embrace large, creative displays made from X-Board Print and X-Board Kraft, meaning they can be re-used or recycled as waste cardboard post-Christmas.
