Deck the Ball

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Honda Center, approached us and asked, “Have you ever printed on a skate deck?” Not knowing exactly what they were talking about, we learned that a skate deck is a skateboard, without the wheels.

Honda Center is the venue for local radio station 102.7 KIIS-FM’s, annual Christmas Ball. This event showcases performances of several of radio’s top music personalities. This year’s event included Chris Brown, an avid skateboarder.

As a gift to the entertainer, Honda Center asked Photomation to put a graphic on a skate deck so they could present it to him. We pride ourselves on doing unusual graphics, so we welcomed the opportunity to fulfill this request.

Using 3M 180C with an 8520 lam, we prepped the skate deck, sized the graphic and applied it. After the initial application, we then hand-trimmed the image to give it a finished look.

‘Tis the season to “Deck the Ball.”

Honoring a Legend

Our client, the Long Beach City Auditor’s Office, is honoring Myrtelle L. Gunsul, the longest serving elected official in Long Beach. Elected in 1919, before women had the right to vote, and was re-elected 11 times. She served the city until her retirement in 1951. Miss Gunsul blazed the trail for women and sought to inspire them to enter public service and to instill high ideals and motives into both political and business life.

Working with their Photomation Account Representative, Mike Mertz, the Auditor’s Office tells Miss Gunsul’s story with visual reproductions from archived family photos and keepsakes, city documents and historians ready to honor her legend. Mike helped gather details and designed art to explain her life’s work. One piece showcases Miss Gunsul’s professional journey and includes letters of recommendation of employers from the upper mid-west to Long Beach, CA. Another wall highlights her Long Beach career including a 3D reproduction of her signature and milestones in 7 different framed art reproductions. Myrtelle L. Gunsul is an inspiration to women everywhere. We are proud to be a part of honoring this legend of Long Beach.

Taken for Granite

Our client, St. Joseph’s Health Systems, wanted to create a new look on the basement wall at St. Jude’s Hospital. Working with Account Executive Ralph Love, Robert Salas designed this faux brick rock scene, complete with a view of the ocean!

Printed to Dreamscape Mystic wall covering material, our installers applied the graphic and totally transformed a plain wall into a work of art.

We love it when our wall coverings are taken for granite!
