Wrap Tip: Wrapping the Deepest Grooves

I have been wrapping vehicles for a number of years now, and recently I've noticed that the commercial vehicles coming through my door have deeper grooves and channels that must be dealt with -- much deeper than they were a few years ago.

Awnings, Graphically Speaking

Awnings, Graphically Speaking

Awnings, like signs and digital graphics, have evolved tremendously through the years to become an integral component of architecture and branding. They have the ability to blend the two together uniquely and beautifully. Add print and graphics to them and they now also become an extension of brand, signage and display. Awnings have always possessed the functions of shade and protection. However, the list of qualities and characteristics attributed to them today is growing as they present opportunities for graphics to the point of becoming an often preferred method for branding while maintaining their architectural features. Developers, particularly in retail and quick service restaurants (QSR), are applying graphic-covered awnings to their store fronts as a primary means of drawing attention, adding ornamental detail and extending their brand. They are building impressions.

The Digital Eye: Designing and Printing Banners

The Digital Eye: Designing and Printing Banners

Banners are certainly a way of life in the print world. It’s helpful to know what design techniques work best in assembling long or tall formatted images. The horizontal banner is very likely the first thing a visitor sees when walking into a store. The banner sets the tone and ambiance of a space and impresses the viewer immediately by the quality of its design, and the impact of its graphics. The banner can also inform the viewer the name of the place, company or product. It may display a corporate logo, incorporate high impact photography or art and usually has some descriptive text. That's a lot to ask of a skinny piece of vinyl!
