Vinyl Wrapping of Band Saw for Axminster Tools


Based in the South West of England, Axminster Tools & Machinery distribute their products across the entire UK, Ireland and continental Europe. 

A well-known, family-run business, with over forty years’ of experience in the sector, Axminster Tools have cemented their position as a leading figure in the mail order tools and machinery industry. 

In addition to supplying products for a wide range of businesses and trade professionals—they also provide an equally high-level of service for the amateur DIY hobbyist.

So, whether you're a contractor, a building firm—or you’re just looking for a new hammer for your toolbox at home—Axminster Tools & Machinery can offer the products, and the service to help you find what you need!


Creative Solutions have established a healthy, long-term working relationship with Axminster Tools & Machinery over the years and we’re very proud to have been involved in a number of different design projects with the Devon-based firm. Most notably, we’ve overseen a recent major rebranding initiative, which has included the design and installation of new signage across their numerous stores, and the upgrading of graphics for their fleet of company vehicles.

This brief, however, was something quite different. Using the artistic vision of a competition winner, Axminster Tools wanted us to provide a high-quality printed vinyl wrap for one of their hard-working bandsaws. A custom makeover that would really make an impact!

Creative Solutions can draw from a deep well of experience in this field. We’ve been supplying vinyl wraps for a wide range of clients—for a varied selection of products. Freezers, snowboards, elevator doors, shipping containers—we’ve even created a bespoke vinyl wrap for a bobsleigh.

In fact, if the surface and conditions are right, there’s not much we can’t wrap!

Vinyl wraps are an economical method of breathing new life into an otherwise unremarkable product. Our design team can print literally any image, graphic, or logo onto a wrap—in stunning high-definition. Indeed, the fabulous octopus design, the brainchild of Axminster Tools’ competition winner, was no exception. We got straight to work!


Using the stunning octopus-themed artwork provided, Creative Solutions supplied a total of four full-colour prints, each measuring 410 x 420mm, and each finished with a high-quality matte laminate. 

The image was designed so that it would be divided between the bottom and top door, on both the rear and front panel of the bandsaw. This gives the effect of the octopus’ tentacles sprawling from the depths of the ocean to the surface. The finished look is both unique and visually striking.

The bespoke artwork is captured superbly by the print quality; the lines are sharp and the colour palette is vibrant and bold. An excellent example of custom-made graphics translating perfectly to a vinyl wrap. The bandsaw has never looked better!
