Gallery Stratford is now selling tote bags made from the recycled banners that once advertised past art exhibitions at the gallery.Galen Simmons, The Stratford Beacon Herald, Publishing date:Feb 07, 2021 Original article here. Gallery Stratford has partnered with Stratford’s Tall Man Promo to create unique tote bags made from recycled banners from the art gallery’s past exhibitions. Pictured, Gallery Stratford director/curator Angela Brayham and Tallman owner J. Oosterom show off some of the bags now available for purchase at $25 apiece. Galen Simmons/The Beacon Herald/Postmedia Network Supporters of Gallery Stratford can now take a piece of its history home in the form of tote bags made from recycled banners once used to advertise past exhibits.

The bags, being sold for $25 apiece while supplies last in support of future gallery exhibitions and programming, are the result of a partnership between Gallery Stratford and Stratford marketing and design company TallMan.Promo.

“When we decided to reopen in August, I wanted to do banners outside. (Tall Man owner) J. Oosterom and I have partnered on various projects to support the gallery, and I asked him if he can do the banners for me,” Brayham said. “So when we were hanging them, we started talking (and) the one thing I hate about that kind of product is they just go to landfill. We’ve got this three-month use and then what do you do with this banner?”

Having recently rediscovered a number of these vinyl banners that had been stored instead of thrown away, Brayham and Oosterom came up with the idea of repurposing them into what Brayham called wearable art pieces.

“Fifteen years ago, we started doing inflatable advertising, so we do fabric and sewing for those. … This is something that is relatively simpler than doing large inflatables, so we kind of said, ‘All right, let’s figure this out,’” ” Oosterom said. “The number of bags we get out of a banner depends actually on how well the banner has survived over the time period.”

The number of bags Oosterom and his team can create out of a single banner also depends on how much of the banner is covered in usable design as opposed to blank space.

“They’ve kind of got this artsy, industrial chic … and what I’m going to do with every bag I sell, I will stick the catalogue or the handout from that show (those banners) came from. So in case you didn’t see the show, you’ll have the context for where that little piece of artwork came from. … So hopefully, people will start wearing these around town and they’ll be able to recognize, ‘Oh, my bag goes with that bag.’ So I think it’s kind of this neat sort of way of connecting people as well,” Brayham said.

While supplies of the bags made from existing banners are limited, Brayham said her goal now is to have Oosterom and his team create tote bags from new exhibition banners. That will keep the material out of landfill while giving patrons a way to show their support for the gallery.

For more information or to purchase a bag, call Gallery Stratford at 519-271-5271 or email Brayham at [email protected].

Santa Inflatable for Quadreal at Marche Central in Montreal, QC.

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year,

On behalf of everybody at TallMan.Promo

Jeroen ‘J’ Oosterom
CEO TMP International ltd.

It is so good to write again about beautiful, smart and impactful events, rather than PPE, Masks and Plexiglass Barriers (though we still gets lots of orders for all these at www.covid19signs.info). It is always a pleasure to do projects in ‘la belle province’ Quebec in Canada, but it had been a while since our installers were travelling to do an inflatable set up. Check out this custom printed pumpkin inflatable replica, designed, manufactured and installed in 2 weeks time at Quadreal’s Marche Central location in Montreal by the team at TallMan.Promo.

Shopping center Marche Central wanted to bring some extra attention and holiday cheer to their outdoor retail enviroment.

Each year, the Centre welcomes some 10 million visitors! With an area of 1 million square feet and 60 tenants, Marché Central is one of the top power centres in Canada, situated near the intersection of Highways 15 and 40 in Montreal.

Marche Central is managed by Quadreal. Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, QuadReal Property Group is a global real estate investment, operating and development company. QuadReal manages the real estate and mortgage programs of British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCI), one of Canada’s largest asset managers with a $153.4 billion portfolio.

The entire inflatable is sublimation printed to match the Marche Central color scheme. Check out this massive pumpkin before it gets replaced by the next installation around the beginning of November. Despite the rush nature of the project, this was an fun and amazing product to work on. Thanks to the amazing client and their wonderful team in Montreal. We can’t wait to see what they will come up with next!

Some things to consider when implementing your organisations Covid-19 strategy:

What is physical distancing?

Physical distancing, sometimes known as “social distancing”, is about keeping a safe distance from others. Physical distancing means remaining two metres away from other people. This is important to help protect us from COVID-19, which spreads via droplets from coughing and sneezing.
Staying two metres away from others is an effective measure.

General Working Arrangements

• Keep team sizes as small as possible.
• Keep a record of who is in each team every day as you may be
required to track back for contact tracing.
• Site teams are encouraged to put forward split/alternating shifts to
avoid extensive intermingling to reduce potential of exposure.
• Work site is to be segregated into zones (or by other methods) as
much as possible to keep different teams/trades physically separated
at all times.
• Where possible, apply a one-way system in high-traffic areas, such as
lifts, stairwells and scaffolds.
• Where practical, all office employees supporting a project work
• When using a vehicle, limit this to one person per vehicle if possible

Site Entry

• Limit visitors to site where ever possible.
• Introduce staggered start and finish times where possible to reduce congestion and contact.
• Monitor site access points to enable physical distancing – you may need to change the number of access points, increase to reduce congestion or decrease to enable monitoring.
• Where entry systems that require skin contact e.g. fingerprint scanners are used, a guide must be followed.
• Require all workers to wash or clean their hands before entering and leaving the site.
• Allow plenty of space (two metres) between people waiting to enter site.
• Regularly clean common contact surfaces in reception, office, access control and delivery areas e.g. scanners, turnstiles, screens, telephone handsets, desks, particularly during peak flow times.
• Where possible, conduct a remote induction before arrival on site, this can be done via video conferencing or by phone. If an in-person induction is required, reduce number of people and hold them outdoors wherever possible.

Site Meetings

• Only absolutely necessary meeting participants should attend.
• Attendees should be two metres apart from each other
• Rooms should be well ventilated / windows opened to allow fresh air circulation.
• Hold meetings in open areas where possible.
• Meetings are to be held through teleconferencing or videoconferencing where possible.

Hand Washing

• Provide additional hand washing facilities to the usual welfare facilities on large, spread out sites or significant numbers of personnel on site.
• Ensure soap and fresh water is readily available and kept topped up at all times.
• Provide hand sanitizer where hand washing facilities are unavailable.
• Regularly clean the hand washing facilities and check soap and sanitizer levels.
• Sites will need extra supplies of soap, hand sanitizer and paper towels and these should be securely stored.

Special Olympics Texasrecently held their Law Enforcement Torch Runs.

The Tallman.promo team were happy to work with Special Olympics Texas to produce 10 custom printed inflatable arches that were used in the cities of PflugervilleLubbockWebsterHurst and San Antonio.

The torch run is the largest public awareness and grassroots fundraising endeavour for the Special Olympics organization as a whole.

 Law enforcement officers across the globe carry the ‘Flame of Hope’ through the streets of their local community, raising awareness and building a spirt of teamwork along the way.

The LETR program first began in 1981in Wichita, Kansas by Police Chief Richard LaMunyon. It has raised more than $800 million.

Our TallMan.Promo arches act as a means of finding your way around an event, at entrance ways and they are perfect as start and finish markers. Their sheer size makes them easily recognizable and they act as a great way to deliver an important message or to recognize sponsors.  They range from plain colours, to fully printed, to custom shapes and sizes.  We at Tallman.promo have seen them used as start and finish markers, event entrance ways, main stage overhangs and much more. 

Our TMP team has teamed up with businesses and organizations in the private and public sector to produce arches for events.  We are proud partners in the Special Olympics torch run.

The Toronto Blue Jays’ Winterfest celebration returned for a nother year and TallMan.Promo were delighted to again provide some custom eye-catching inflatables inside the Rogers Centre.

Current and former Blue Jays players and other sports personalities stopped in to mingle with fans, sign some autographs and pose for pictures on a fun baseball weekend in January.

The big draw was seeing some of the Blue Jays – outfitted in the return to baby blue jerseys – such as Bo Bichette and Vlad Guerrero Jr. Joining them were stars from the past, including Roberto Alomar Jr. and Lloyd Moseby.

Our contribution as an event marketing company – for a second straight year – were our inflatables. We provided a 20ft snowman decked out in Blue Jays colours. These continuous air models come with a built-in air blower to keep them afloat. We also provided 10ft (diameter) snowflakes, which are helium powered. These marketing products catch the eye but are also markers to help guests navigate their way around.

An indoor Winterfest celebration can highlight the various ways you can use custom inflatables, from decorative art pieces to land markers, to children’s activities.  All of our inflatables are digitally printed so there are no surprises when your product arrives.

Thanks to the Toronto Blue Jays for being a wonderful client and having the vision for this magnificent event. Inspired to do your own custom inflatable campaign? Give your account manager at TallMan.Promo a call today!

Canadian moving and storage company Dymon is a pioneer when it comes to their trade. If you are under the impression that storage facilities are generally depressing, cold and inhospitable, I would challenge you to set foot in any of Dymon’s facilities. There facilities are clean and warm, their store outshines most luxury hotel lobbies and their staff is focused on you, the customer.

TallMan.Promo is proud to have designed, produced and installed and installed giant rooftop Christmas inflatables for their main facilities in Ottawa and Toronto.Santa’s sled is pulled by the Dymon trucks. The unit is over 25 ft high, uses 3 blowers to run and can be seen from the Queensway from both directions.

Founded in 1995, Dymon is a privately-owned company based out of Ottawa, Ontario. After a successful period in property management, commercial building development and high-end retirement residences, Dymon launched the Dymon Storage brand in 2006. Since the opening of our first storage facility in the summer of 2006, Dymon has focused relentlessly on its mission of pushing the envelope of the storage industry. Dymon Storage represents an entirely new paradigm, exceeding customers’ expectations and changing the way they think about storage.

In addition to the Santa, various 20ft inflatable grinches popped up on their facilities as well. Taken from Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit.

Thanks to Dymon Storage for being a wonderful client and having the vision for this gigantic project. Inspired to do your own custom inflatable campaign? Give your account manager at TallMan.Promo a call today!

The Toronto Raptors run to an NBA championship captured the imagination of the country as they became the first team outside of the U.S. to win basketball’s biggest prize.

It was a shining moment for sports in our country, and we were thrilled when asked to work on a project here at TMP that helped celebrate the Raptors world championship.

Our team created a 10ft metallic pvc sphere – complete with the instantly recognizable Raptors’ claw logo, measuring in at 6ft on either side of the golden ball.

Our in-house printed vinyl was applied in the production facility of our headquarters in Stratford, Ontario by our marketing team for a Raptors event in the Fall of 2019.

The shiny, metallic look was a perfect compliment for the champion Raptors and a head turner and photo-op at the Raptors event.https://www.youtube.com/embed/UpT7VU2LXjg

We have worked on similar projects for clients over the years, of different size and scope and with different specifications from our business partners. We have created spheres that hang from the ceiling or are elevated with bases, with varying types of materials for indoors or outdoors. We thank MLSE for affording us the opportunity to work on this exciting project that by all accounts was a big hit.ABOUT METALLIC (MIRROR) SPHERESMade to your required size, these smooth mirror spheres create a “wow” element for any event or party space. The sheer size and impact of these spheres are guaranteed to get your guests talking. As we ship these units un-inflated, the shipping part of the cost is minimal. We do recommend to buy our pump to inflate them.  Inflatable ball Seams: All inflatable mirror balls have seams to create the sphere. The seams are noticeable up close but will give the effect of a smooth finish at a distance. There are NO options to have a seamless product.

TallMan.Promo is proud to offer our inflatable mirror balls, this is a high-quality inflatable product sure to wow at any event. Most of our orders range in size from 24” up to 96”  but we can produce up to 25’ custom if required.

Suggested uses: Ceiling décor, Large scale props, Event Design, Oversized Christmas Ornaments, Upscale hotels, resorts, Rental Companies, Event Design, Convention Centers, Trade shows, Fashion Shows, Concert décor, Tent design, Mall décor, Dance floors, Night Clubs, Lighting Design
