Born out of the desire to combine a love of design, craft and visual experimentation, Peg Creative is a multifaceted design studio located on Auckland's North Shore. Since launching in 2014, we have been fortunate enough to work on a wide variety of projects, from customised decor and event signage through to national brand promotional products and awards.
Having in-house machinery, designers and production schedules allows us to produce high-quality results from conception to completion using locally grown talent. Every day is a chance to build on our creativity, learn a new craft and aim for perfection.
Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.
The quality of our tools is extremely important: we know that accuracy and attention to detail greatly affect the outcome for our customers and their markets. That’s why we work with the GCC Puma IV vinyl cutter and VLS4.60 Universal Laser System, one of the highest quality laser-cutting machines on the market.
Laser work area 610x455mm
Max workpiece height 255mm
Vinyl work area 580x5000mm
