You might have missed the original Gratnells prep room ping pong video over the summer. It was made in July when most schools were on holiday. So we thought we would jazz it up a bit with some funky background music and re-release it. It was made by the very clever Science Technicians at Steyning Grammar School in Sussex and all came about as we spotted a much older version they had put on YouTube. We got in touch to see if they would be interesed in making an up to date version using Gratnells trays and so it came to pass…
Watch out for more Prep Room ping pong coming soon.
We were delighted to have a preview of some new pictures of the Monarch range with Gratnells trays. They are a great example of how wooden furniture manufacturers can use colour and classroom accessories to create beautiful authentic catalogue images which look much better than simple product shots. If you would like any help or advice in creating your own catalogue images just drop me an typing services
We have just discovered that there are some Gratnells trays in Grand Theft Auto V. A pair of Deep F2 trays were spotted by Spencer Randon (our Director of International Business) while playing the new game at home. If you are a GTA V fan they can be found in Lenny’s house high on a shelf. Even fictional bitter cyber-geek criminals find Gratnells trays useful!
A little bit from Wikipedia on Grand Theft Auto 5 for those not in the know:
“Grand Theft Auto V is a 2013 open world action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It was released on 17 September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. It is the fifteenth title in the Grand Theft Auto series, and the first main entry since Grand Theft Auto IV in 2008. As one of the last titles to be released exclusively for the seventh generation of video game consoles, Grand Theft Auto V was highly anticipated preceding its release.
Grand Theft Auto V is played from a third-person perspective in an open world environment, allowing the player to interact with the game world at their leisure. The game is set within the fictional state of San Andreas (based on Southern California) and affords the player the ability to freely roam the world’s countryside and the fictional city of Los Santos (based on Los Angeles). The single-player story is told through three player-controlled protagonists whom the player switches between, and it follows their efforts to plan and execute six large heists to accrue wealth for themselves. An online multiplayer mode is included with the game, allowing up to 16 players to engage in both co-operative and competitive gameplay in a recreation of the single-player setting.
The developers envisioned Grand Theft Auto V as a spiritual successor to many of their previous projects, such as Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. Development began shortly following the release of Grand Theft Auto IV, with a focus on innovating the core mechanic of the series by giving the player control of three protagonists. Upon its release, the game was acclaimed by many reviewers who praised its story, presentation, and open-ended gameplay. A commercial success, Grand Theft Auto V broke industry sales records by earning US $800 million in the first 24 hours of its release, and $1 billion within its first three days, making it the fastest selling entertainment product in history”
