Our 500th Issue

KnowledgeByte Main Image

For 500, mostly, consecutive weeks we have published our newsletter designed to showcase the depth and breadth of work we do for our clients. You bring us stories that need to be told to your clients, staff and stakeholders, then we help you tell those visual stories using signs and graphics.

Many of the stories we tell are designed to create brand awareness. Others are intended to create a healing environment. Some are for motivation and inspiration. Still more are used as art to enhance the spaces where our clients live and work.

For nearly 10 years, our weekly Photomation Knowledge Bytes have provided a way to document the visual stories we have helped to tell as well as to serve as a way to stimulate creative thinking and create unique applications of signs and graphics in our clients’ lives.

From all of our team members, thank you for taking a few minutes each week to share the joy we have in being visual storytellers to amazing clients like you.

Twice as Nice

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, First International Bank & Trust, is the sponsor of two brand new Zamboni Ice Resurfacing machines headed to the local high school in their hometown of Fargo, North Dakota. Referred by The Zamboni Company directly, we worked with the President of the bank and his marketing team to create a design for both machines.

Several design options were presented and suggestions from our client helped to focus the design process. After weeks of discussion and designs, final layouts were approved for production. Using 3M 180C with 8519 lamination, multiple panels were made to prepare for installation.

Installation was performed at the Zamboni manufacturing facility located just up the freeway from our production facility. Over the course of two days, each machine had their graphics put on by a pair of installers.

Progress photos were sent to the bank headquarters throughout the day and final, completed wrap photos were sent at the end of the day. The client was very pleased with the end result and is looking forward to many years of marketing exposure to the bank’s current and future customers.

Do you have a vehicle you want to use to communicate your marketing message? If so, give us a call. We’d be happy to bring your vision to reality.

Creating a Healing Environment

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Petra ICS, wanted to add graphics to four rooms of a new facility, St. Mary’s Outpatient Imaging Center, in Victorville, Ca. Working with layouts from Montanio Design Group, we assembled images to make the final design. Next, we made full sized strike-offs for approval. Strike-offs are used to check image sharpness and color fidelity before making the large wall graphics. Satisfied with the tests, approval was given to proceed with production.

Using Dreamscape’s Mystical wallcovering material, each wall was paneled and printed using HP Latex inks. Over 200 linear feet of material was used to produce the floor to ceiling wall graphics.

Installation was done over a couple of days due to room availability. Work began at 5:00 a.m. and ended when the last panel was installed around 3:00 p.m. The wall graphics add a sense of calmness to these normally stark rooms. All of that leads to a more healing environment for patients.

Do you need to add some graphics to your office or work environment? If so, give us a call.

Shooting for the Moon

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, UCI Samueli School of Engineering, wanted to wrap a 40′ Airstream trailer to be used for a new program. Working with company President, Charlene Hesketh, university officials contacted her to help make this happen in time to meet a rapidly approaching deadline where the newly wrapped trailer would be unveiled.

To create a template to place graphics on the trailer, we headed to Victorville to measure the trailer and to take pictures. Upon our return, artwork was created with the input of school personnel. After a few minor adjustments, the files were approved and sent to production.

Over 750 sq. ft of material was used to cover the UCI Mobile Rocket and Fab Lab trailer. 3M adhesive vinyl 180C with 8519 lam was printed in multiple panels for shipment to UCI. Installation was done on campus over the course of two days. The trailer was on display the next morning and was a huge hit for people in attendance at the symposium.

Thanks to a $1 million gift from Base 11, a nonprofit STEM workforce development and entrepreneur accelerator, the UCI “Moonshot Initiative” will establish a rocketry program at the Henry Samueli School of Engineering, with the intent of making UCI the first academic institution to launch a liquid-fuel rocket into space. The Samueli Foundation is also a sponsor of the trailer.

jetBlue Window Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, jetBlue Airways, needed to replace/update their window branding at the Long Beach Airport jetBlue Terminal. Working with the Facilities Department for jetBlue corporate in Salt Lake City, we tested and calibrated their PMS colors and, once approved, printed the panels.

jetBlue’s window graphics were printed on 3M adhesive vinyl IJ40 with 3M 8509 Lamination to protect the vinyl. IJ40 adhesive vinyl has high quality printing capabilities and is a great product for walls, windows, floors, vehicle wraps and more.

Installation began by removing the existing vinyl. With clean windows, we installed the new graphics. Each window measured 88″×120″. Removal and installation was completed on the same day. Our client was very happy with the results.

Do you have windows you want to upgrade or use to brand your company? If so, give us a call. We’d be happy to help bring your vision to reality.
