Sound Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Yamaha Corporation of America, has come to us for nearly 25 years to get trade show graphics for their most important event of the year, NAMM, National Association of Music Merchants. The winter trade show is held annually in Anaheim, Ca and is one of the largest trade shows held in the Anaheim Convention Center.

With one of the largest booths at the show, Yamaha needs a lot of graphics to display their wide range of musical products. A flurry of production activity takes place after the new year and runs for a couple of weeks. The pictures that accompany this article showcase the size and range of graphics we produced for the 2012 Winter NAMM show.

The visually attractive graphics accent the quality of the instruments on display at the annual event and set the tone to increase trade show traffic and sales.

Scalamandré‘s Signature

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Scalamandré, was opening a new store in the prestigious area around South Coast Plaza. Renowned for its incomparable quality, taste and style, Scalamandré remains one of America’s leading purveyors of exquisite fabrics, wallcoverings, trims and furnishings.

Scalamandré contacted Photomation to print and install their iconic brand on a 48′×14′ wall. Working with Photomation Account Executive Francisco Flores, Vanette K. Johnson, Territory Sales Executive for Scalamandré, gave Francisco the plan of what they wanted as a “signature wall” for their new store.

The color of their wall was critical to the client. The tradition of the color and the zebra dates back to the late 1930’s. Franco Scalamandré was approached to decorate a New York restaurant named Gino’s. Franco’s wife, Flora, designed the art deco styled zebras with arrows on a red background. The missing stripe on the zebra is due to the original screen cutters accidentally forgetting to engrave a stripe on the rear leg of the smaller zebra. That tradition has carried forth through today.

Using 3M custom wallcovering material with a luster lamination we produced this 12 panel graphic and prepped it for installation. The top of the wall is 27′ feet in the air. A scissor lift was brought in to assist the installers in reaching the upper parts of the wall. Installation of the nearly 700 sq. ft. of material took the better part of a day.

Our client was very pleased with the look and the results of their new signature wall.
