Designs for Film, Video and Stage

Printed materials for stage and theater

Thinknik has developed and created a variety of materials for video, film and theatrical events. We can make props good enough for a closeup or bold enough for stage use!

We create historical and fantasy documents

From laminated identification badges to WWII printed ID tags - licenses to government IDs, we provide close-up quality art. (We'll need to know about your production Co. first)


We are thrilled to offer Photoshop composites, collages, corrections, reconstructions or any other tweak you may be looking for. Better than airbrushing and all digital!


Thinknik specializes in recreating historical documents. We can produce documents to their original, exacting degrees as if they were new or aged 40 or 400 years!

Motion Picture Perfect
Designs for movies and on-stage

Thinknik designs look great in movies and plays

Brian Diehl has been working with film and video producers and live theatre companies for more than 25 years - even before Thinknik was founded. We understand that directorial styles can drive the type of design and the susequent budget.
