Closed for Labor Day

KnowledgeByte Main Image

In recognition of the Labor Day holiday, Photomation will be closed on Monday, September 1st.

In our weekly Knowledge Bytes, we talk a lot about the equipment we use and the innovative products we produce. The truth is that none of those things would be possible without the hard working, dedicated people of Photomation. Their pursuit of perfection and commitment to excellence is what makes everything we do possible.

So this week, I wanted to pause and acknowledge our entire team who work tirelessly to make magic happen here at Photomation! We are blessed to have each of you and we cannot do it without you! From the bottom of our heart, Thank You for all you do for our company and our clients.

We will be back in the office, ready to serve our clients, on Tuesday, September 2nd.

Custom Wood Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our new Direct-to-Board printer opens up your creative options for signs by printing directly to most any flat surface material. This week we experimented with a variety of wood boards and we have received lots of compliments on how good the images look.

We can print on plywood, particleboard, melamine, cutting boards, and even decoratively shaped wooden boards. These wooden graphics can be used for décor or signage. We can create “vintage” or “aged” wood looks or we can make contemporary signs from wood.

If you have something you would like to see us print on, let us know. We’ll be happy to show you how Direct-to-Board printing can give your Custom Wood Graphics that polished look!

Another Diamond Award…

KnowledgeByte Main Image

The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Marketing & Business Development Council recognized Partners Federal Credit Union with a Diamond Award in the category of Point of Sale Display and Retail Merchandising for elements of Partners’ branch located at Disney’s Grand Central Creative Campus in Glendale, California.

Working closely with Royce Ngiam, Assistant Vice President, Marketing, and Henry de la Espriella, Creative Services Manager, Francisco Flores, their Photomation Account Executive, conceptualized an award-winning Point of Sale Display. Photomation fabricated three custom 3″ aluminum frames with LED illumination and a brushed aluminum finish on the sides. Custom color LED’s created a reverse halo lighting effect that matched Partners’ brand color. Beveled and flame polished black acrylic on the face covered the monitor frame and aluminum frame. Frosted acrylic, ½″ thick, on the back of the frame helped to create a glowing effect from the LED’s. The whole display was floated 1″ from wall using Stand Off hardware.

Photomation has a long-standing commitment to provide the best and most unique customized products for our most demanding clients. This is the third CUNA Marketing & Business Development Council Diamond Award we have won. We are proud

Custom Metal & Glass Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

This week we have been using our new Direct-To-Board Printer to print directly onto Metal and Glass. The results are fantastic!

For metal, we have printed on brushed aluminum and brushed stainless steel. We have put images on galvanized metal and on polished aluminum. There are many types of metal we can now print an image directly on.

For glass, we ran tests on ¼″ glass and printed on the first surface, on top of the glass, as well as second surface, where you look through the glass to see the image. Both methods gave favorable results and each has a different look, depending on how you want to incorporate direct-to-glass printing for your application.

If you have some flat metal or glass you would like to see a sample of, give us a call. We’ll be glad to print directly on your sample and show you all the possibilities of Custom Metal and Glass graphics.
