Artful Wallcovering

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Fineline Graphics, presented their Photomation Account Manager, Mike Mertz, a challenge. They needed a wallcovering print solution, one with an ultra high-quality material that would reproduce saturated colors accurately, and is easy to install and remove without damage to an existing art gallery wall.

Mike worked with his client and our digital imaging team to create samples. The winning solution material was our EZ-Install wallcovering. We printed 11 panels 30.75″w × nearly 11 feet tall, enough to cover 2 large walls in this New York City art gallery.

The effect of the wallcovering as a backdrop to the client’s artwork is dazzling. Many accolades were received for the exhibition’s inventive use of color. The wallcovering was easy to install and will be easy to remove once the show is over, all without damaging the existing walls.

Do you have a need to add a splash of color to your environment? Give us a call. We’ll be glad to help.

First Retired Number

Our client, Anaheim Ducks Hockey Club, wanted to retire the first-ever player number at Honda Center. To do this, they asked us to create a banner that would hang permanently from the rafters at the arena.

The night was filled with lots of excitement. The on-ice ceremony contained speeches, career highlights, and poignant tributes from past teammates. It is hard to overstate what this player has meant to the NHL, the Anaheim Ducks and hockey in Southern California.

The culmination of the night was the raising of the banner you see above. It fills us with pride to know we had a small part in this historic moment in Anaheim Ducks hockey. Teemu was the first number retired, but he certainly won’t be the last.

Printing on Glass

Our client, Montanio Design Group, wanted to recognize the intricate lace making abilities of the Sisters of St Joseph for a project at St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton, Ca.

As one of the elements of a larger project designed, the creative team at MDG wanted to have the delicate lace patterns represented on large glass panels.

Using our Arizona 318GL Direct-To-Board printer that has the ability to print with white ink, we took images of the lace patterns and output them directly to glass. The end result was a stunning example of how glass can be used to create display graphics.

Printing directly to glass does not have to be a pane! Call us and we’ll help you see this clearly remarkable graphic option.

Award-Winning Graphics

Photomation received the prestigious Gold Ink Award during the 2014 Gold Ink Awards and Hall of Fame Gala held in conjunction with the 2014 Graph Expo. The competition is open to all creators and producers of printed materials. Photomation won the award within the Digital Printing, Wide-Format Displays, Graphics & Signage category.

Our winning entry was the work we did to wrap a Metrolink rail car promoting the LA County Fair. The 85′ long, 15′ tall train uses more than 9,000 sq ft of material and laminate. Installation takes 5 days to complete. The end result is an eye-catching “rolling billboard” that is used to promote the LA County Fair.

“Being recognized by our peers for the work we do is very rewarding.”, says Charlene Hesketh, President of Photomation. “The truth is we do lots of great work for many clients throughout the year. Choosing just one to be recognized was quite a challenge. We are very happy to receive this industry award.”

As 2015 rolls in, we look forward to working with our clients to help create more award-winning graphics.
