A Better Wok Experience

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Wok Experience, didn’t like the graphics on their new menu board that another company had done. Located in Anaheim, owner Shawn Tang saw the work we had done at Charlie’s next door and asked us to help. “I was losing money everyday, simply because the food did not look appetizing”, says Mr. Tang.

Our designers put together several layouts for our client to review. Individual food items and pricing were updated to their specifications. We worked closely on each food shot to improve and enhance the overall look and appeal of the food.

Once the final layouts were approved, we printed and installed the new graphics at the restaurant. Shawn is thrilled with the result. “A lot of customers notice the difference between the old and new menu board. We get so many compliments on how much better the new pictures look.” For delicious food and great menu graphics, visit the restaurant at 267 S. Euclid Ave. in Anaheim. It is a better Wok Experience.

iPod Nano Contest Winner Announced

The winner of our web site contest, Win an iPod Nano, is Greg Jowyk. Greg is the Senior Art Director for LA County Sanitation Districts. “I guess my timing for signing up on the web site was perfect”, said a surprised Jowyk when he was told about the contest results.

“I have been using Photomation for over 10 years and they always come through for me. Their new website has shown me more of their capabilities that I was not even aware of. It is easier to navigate and find what I am looking for. The WebCourier saves us lots of time in getting files into production quickly.”

Greg also has an unusual side job…He is an NHL off-ice official who sits in the visitor’s penalty box at Anaheim Ducks games at Honda Center. “I’ve been doing that job for over 14 years. It can be a real funny experience as two guys continue to yell and scream at each other after taking a 5 minute penalty for fighting.”

We are happy to award an iPod Nano to Greg Jowyk, winner of the “Win an iPod” promotion. Continue to check our site regularly for updates on new products and other features added weekly.

“The Thrill” is back

Our client, Will “The Thrill” Martin, has returned for another vehicle wrap. If you have been a long-time reader of “Knowledge Bytes” you will recall one of our first stories was about a funny car wrap we did for Will. (Note: You can see our archive of “Knowledge Bytes” on our home page at

This new body was created to look like a retro Camaro. Using original equipment stock parts as our guide, we recreated a 1969 Camaro RS. The beauty of this wrap is in the details. Using Adobe Illustrator, our VP of Digital, Brian Mundy, painstakingly recreated louvered front headlight covers, RS badging, a realistic looking front grille and rear taillights. Pin striping applications on the hood and trunk were added as part of the original paint scheme for the ’69 Camaro. Sponsorship logos and lettering were added to complete the design.

The car was finished in time to race on Friday night. Will was “thrilled” and said it was the best wrap we had done for him. Will sums it up best when he says, “I can’t say enough good things about Photomation. You’ve always done a good job for us and that’s why we keep coming back!”
