Creating a Race Atmosphere Along the Mersey

The International Mersey River Festival took place last weekend with a brand new addition, the racing extravaganza that is the British ThunderCat Racing Tour!

Festival visitors saw 18 racing boats battle it out on the Mersey, reaching speeds in excess of 65mph as they wizzed along the famous river.

All along the waterfront were an array of colourful flags and banners, printed and supplied by Your Print Partner.

In order to create the perfect racing atmosphere, the organisers of this exciting ‘splashtacular’ event required a vibrant display of colours in the spectator zones along the waterfront.

We printed long rolls of Aero Banner to attach to the metal railings in Albert Dock, featuring the ThunderCat logo and various sponsors logos. Aero Banner is the perfect choice of material for such a location – wind resistant due to the small holes woven into the 117gsm fabric, and printed with colourfast and UV stable inks.

We also provided a number of 5.1m tall Feather Flags, bright and large enough to be visible from the other side of the river! The aluminium frames we use for our Feather Flags are made from 2mm thick poles, making them the strongest flag frame systems available in the UK.
