Hall of Fame Performance

Our client, GMR, asked us to help them re-brand the San Diego Padres Hall of Fame Bar & Grill at Petco Park. Working from renderings of visual concepts, we brought their vision to life.

Behind display cases that house memorabilia of the Padres Hall of Fame inductees, we installed vinyl wallpaper over a rough textured concrete wall. When our installers were finished, it looked like the graphic was painted on the wall.

In addition, we were asked to wallpaper two walls of the entrance corridor and add dimensional logos and lettering to a third wall. We also installed wallpaper to a large wall that will serve as a backdrop to a new bar rail that was hung on the wall.

All work was coordinated to be done during a week the Padres were away on a roadtrip. We were in and out during that timeframe. It was another Hall of Fame performance by Photomation.

Tabletop Graphics

Our client, GMR, asked us to help brand a bar at Petco Park in San Diego. One of the elements of the re-branding they requested was to install 20 graphics on the tops of the tables in the Hall of Fame Bar & Grill.

Using 3M 180C with a floor guard lamination, we printed the graphics so they could be cut in a perfect circle on our Zund digital die cutting machine. The thicker laminate helps protect the graphic during normal use. Installation was a breeze and dramatically changed the look of the tables.

If you have a need to promote your brand on a tabletop in your bar, restaurant or break room, give us a call. We can turn your tables into the talk of the town!

Creating a Healing Environment

Our client, the Anaheim Ducks, asked us to help decorate walls for a newly dedicated wing at CHOC Children’s Hospital. Through the efforts of the Anaheim Ducks, over $350,000 was raised to help create a more healing environment for children and adolescents with cancer.

“Teen years are tough enough without the added stress of a cancer diagnosis”, says Karen Gruner, Donor Relations Coordinator for the hospital. “CHOC Children’s Hospital wanted to create a much needed teen environment that would make teen cancer patients still feel like teens, encouraging camaraderie and social interaction with each other. Allowing the teen patients to be together versus with younger patients or with adults at adult facilities is much better for them psychologically.”

Photomation was asked to make frames of Anaheim Ducks players to help decorate the walls of the new Anaheim Ducks Wing which included a Teen Room, Family Lounge, School Room and Playroom. Working with the Anaheim Ducks and CHOC, we printed selected images and made frames then coordinated a late-night installation so the rooms could be ready for a grand opening early the next morning.

“The rooms looked incomplete and unfinished until the Anaheim Ducks and Photomation came to our aid,” says Miss Gruner. Photomation is grateful to be part of creating a healing environment for the children and adolescents undergoing cancer treatment at CHOC Children’s Hospital.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…

Our client, Acapulco Restaurants, asked us to help them update one of their cantinas in Los Angeles. This two-story eatery needed new artwork in one of their dining rooms. We reproduced several pieces on a special canvas that has a brush-stroke finish. Stretched onto 2”×2” stretcher bars, each canvas piece was framed in a float-style natural rustic frame.

Framed mirrors were also requested to add interest to different dining areas. Choosing from our wide range of moulding options, our client selected a frame style and we custom ordered the mirror glass. In addition to the restaurant area, six restrooms were refitted with new, mirror frames to help improve their décor and look.

Whether your facilities need a remodel or just an upgrade, call the professionals at Photomation to design, produce and install inspiring environments and artistic décor that reflects your image and improves sales. Your image is our business!

Roll-on Protection

Our client, Geographics, needed a problem solved. Seems that a banner they had produced elsewhere had problems when they tried to remove graffiti applied to it. Although it was touted as having had an application of anti-graffiti laminate applied to it in the shop, the solvent inks were coming off when attempts were made to clean up the tagging.

Our solution came in two parts, literally. To provide an extra layer of protection, we applied a special coating with an activating agent that puts a barrier over the printed banner. This rolled-on liquid dries and hardens to make removal of graffiti easier while protecting the graphic image.

The anti-graffiti liquid can be applied in the field or done at our facility prior to installation. The next time your image needs protection from tagging, give us a call. We’ll roll-on over.
