Recognizing “Values in Action”

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, wanted to create a place where they could recognize past and future recipients of the hospital’s “Values in Action” awards.

Designed by Petra-ICS, the sculpted and finished blank maple panels were provided to us. The wooden boards were printed with faint watermark historical images on our OCE Direct-to-Board printer.

From there, our Graphtec vinyl plotter cut the ½″ sized lettering. The vinyl letters were applied to clear acrylic and secured to the printed boards with stand-off hardware.

To cap off this beautiful work of art brushed bronze dimensional lettering was added to the mahogany header (not shown above).

Combining multiple imaging techniques are what we specialize in. If you have a vision you would like to see come to reality, give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you.

Honoring The Fallen

KnowledgeByte Main Image

No matter where this holiday weekend finds you, at a picnic, at a parade, in front of a TV watching the Indy 500 or the Memorial Golf Tournament, or at a cemetery remembering a loved one, let us stop and honor the reason we have this extra time off.

A tradition that dates back to the Civil War days, Memorial Day is where we stop, as a country, to remember those who have fallen in service to our country. We are grateful for all the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

We also want to pause and recognize the brave men and women in uniform wherever they may be deployed. Thank you for your service.

In recognition of the holiday, our office will be closed on Monday, May 25th.

Walls That Make Dramatic Statements

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Décor Interior Design, needed help for their client, Pan Pacific Mechanical, to come up with design options for their new office in Fountain Valley. Working with Ronda Jackson, President, Décor Interior Design, and Pan Pacific’s graphic designer, Melissa Glendinning, we took measurements, created sample colors to match painted walls and helped visualize the final look of the project.

One wall was filled with powerful words that inspire and create pride for Pan Pacific and their employees. Two other walls were created to show what the company does best and branded with their logo. The large 14-foot tall walls added to the grandeur of the project.

Pan Pacific was on a tight timeline due to a scheduled open house. Once the designs were finalized, Photomation printed and installed adhesive vinyl wall covering on three large walls. To minimize disruption to Pan Pacific’s staff, installation began late Friday afternoon and finished in the afternoon on Saturday. Both our client, and our client’s client, were thrilled with the results.

Do you need to make a dramatic statement with your office walls? Give us a call. We’ll be glad to help you. Photomation – Imagination Thrives Here™

This year we celebrate 60 years of service to our clients and our community. On Saturday, May 2nd, Photomation and the Hesketh family were honored by the Assistance League of Anaheim at their 25th Annual Luncheon and Fashion Show held at Disneyland Hotel’s Grand Ballroom.

Founded to help clothe less fortunate people, the Assistance League of Anaheim uses this annual event to raise funds to support their mission. Each year one honoree is selected to be recognized for their contribution to making the community a better place.

“Our mission is to be our client’s best supplier”, said company Vice President Matt Hesketh, “Over the years, we have been recognized by our clients, our peers and our community as a company that is known for the quality of the work we do, the manner in which we do it, and the involvement of our employees in various community service efforts.”

“Our family is honored and humbled to be recognized by the Assistance League of Anaheim for our years of service to the greater Anaheim community.”, Hesketh concluded.

Design. Create. Install.

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Thoro Packaging, wanted to add some design elements to their new building lobby. Working with Monica Bolden, Executive Administrator, Thoro Packaging, our company President, Charlene Hesketh began the design process and showed her several options that included their iconic horse theme and showcased Thoro’s dramatic logo. After several rounds, a final design was chosen and the job went into production.

Our artist, Ken Jones, created an artistic triptych backlit graphic design that the client loved. First, we created custom frameless light boxes to have the graphic go all the way to the edge of the backlit display. The actual images were printed on our direct-to-board printer and installed onto the light box.

Next, we made two “negative” logos from ½″ black Sintra with a brushed aluminum face. One logo had red vinyl applied to the face and the other was left in it’s natural aluminum finish.

Our expert installers brought the whole design concept to reality. The result was a breath-taking backlit display and two dramatic presentations of the Thoro Packaging logos.
