One of the few positive aspects of the Christchurch earthquakes is that those from the region seem to have banded together in an effort to try and get their city back on its feet. And Phantom Billstickers, which started in Christchurch in 1982, is doing its bit by offering existing businesses that are moving to new premises, new start-ups, bands, arts groups, or "anyone with something to say" a leg up. Phantom's Robin McDonnell says there are no complicated conditions. It's just their way of helping. So Christchurch folks just need to bring in 100 A3 posters to the Sydenham office and they'll stick ‘em up on their high profile sites around the city.
