Wallcovering Scores for AYSO

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO), was moving into new headquarters and needed some ideas on how to tell their story through graphics on their walls. Working with AYSO’s Jill Meshekow, Director, Human Resources/Safe Haven and Jennifer Kaye, Manager of Digital Media/Graphic Design, their Photomation Account Executive, Francisco Flores, helped them bring their vision into reality.

Beginning at the entrance of their new facility visitors will see the wallcovering pictured above.  This collage represents the many facets of AYSO and the impact they have on youth soccer. Wallcovering was also applied to their Hall of Fame Wall and used as a backdrop to display the award recipients.

What started as the dream of a group of devoted soccer enthusiasts in a garage has blossomed into an organization with 50,000 teams and more than 600,000 players. The new headquarter graphics reflect the values of the organization and our wallcovering scores for AYSO.

Celebrating 50 Years of Baseball

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, asked us to create a custom frame for one of their executives. This particular frame displays several of the jerseys that were worn throughout the 50 year history of Angels baseball. We were given the jerseys along with a rough sketch on how they wanted them displayed. Our challenge was that this frame had to be designed and delivered in less than a week.

We began by creating a background graphic using the team colors as the design treatment. Next, we output their newly unveiled 50th anniversary logo and cut out the shape of this graphic using our digital die cutter. Our framing department then added a one inch block to the back of the logo to give it a dimensional look.

Each jersey was meticulously stitched in place using preservation techniques that prevent damage to historical jerseys. All of the pieces were assembled into a final framed shadowbox piece that measured over 8 feet left to right. This was truly a stunning looking frame.

The frame was delivered to the Angels and presented to the executive as a surprise. He was very pleased with his gift. We felt like we had just hit a grand slam!

Wallcovering, Décor Takes Flight

“The Boeing Experience begins from the moment of arrival.”

Our client, Boeing C-17, needed to enhance the Business Development Center in their massive facility located in Long Beach, CA.  Working with Fernando De La Torre, Facility Architect for Boeing, and Photomation Account Executive, Francisco Flores, selected images to be used for this project.  The scope of the work entailed 40 frames and a 10′×9′ image on wallcovering.

For the frames, products, people, and historical themes were selected from the Boeing art files and the Long Beach Historical Society.  Each frame included a mounted print with a double mat.  The frames were delivered and installed on the same day.

For the wallcovering, Photomation printed a 10′×9′ image of the C-17 Globemaster III aircraft.  Special image processing was done electronically to enhance the image sharpness and resolution.  The final product was printed on Pique wallcovering and installed by our professional paperhanger.

The entire project was accomplished successfully as planned and has enhanced the new, upgraded C-17 Boeing Business Development Center to a higher level.

Mammoth Snowboard Graphic

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Young’s Market Company, needed a drink menu designed and installed on a snowboard. This unique menu was going to be hung in one of the bars at the Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort.

The design was created by Brian Mundy, VP Digital Imaging and Graphic Services at Photomation, and after a few rounds of changes was approved for production.

Using 3M 180C with 8520 lam, we printed the graphic and had our installer, Cathy Matcham, apply the material to the snowboard. The finished board was delivered to the client who sent it to the Mammoth resort for final installation. The whole process was as quick as a trip down a black diamond run!

Up and Down, Real Easy

Retractable banner stands are an economic and easily transportable way to put up banners at special events, trade shows or as lobby signage. Banner stands can be single-sided or double-sided and come in a variety of widths and heights.

Most of the stands above are from our Expand line of retractable banner stands. These dependable, durable and easy-to-use stands can be used at various heights without getting new hardware. Changing graphics is a breeze with their “drop in cartridge” system. This allows you to change out the graphic in the field without returning it to us to install a new graphic.

We can also replace graphics for other retractable banner stands as well. All we need is the stand and your graphic file.  We will do the rest.

When you need easy-to-use banner stands for your next event or display, give us a call. We’ll be glad to help you.
