Another Year of Imagination

KnowledgeByte Main Image

This week we celebrate the one-year anniversary of our direct-to-board printer. During the past year we have been able to produce a wide range of graphics on an even wider range of substrates. From wood to glass, tile to metal, or fabric to plexiglass we have yet to find the limits of what this printer can image to.

Direct-to-Board prints can be done in single panels up to 4′×8′. Panels can be as much as 1.75″ thick. Multiple panels are a breeze with the precise registration and advance motors of our printer. Single-side or double-side is no problem. We can even print with white ink to help make your image pop off the page!

One year down and many more to go. Let your imagination run wild with the endless possibilities of printing directly to your material or substrate. If you have an idea and want to see us turn it into reality, give us a call. We are Photomation – Imagination Thrives Here™

When it’s in Rome, Print it at Home

Our client, University of California, Riverside, UCR, wanted to exhibit artist Massimiliano Gatti’s art in the California Museum of Photography at the UCR ARTSblock in Downtown Riverside. The challenge for the director of the UCR ARTSblock, Jonathan Green, was to bring the many parts of Gatti’s work together, ship it from Italy and present the work in the United States.

His solution was to create the exhibition here instead of shipping it from Europe. It also created an opportunity to bring all of the artist’s projects together for the first time in an elegantly curated manner befitting the expression of the artist’s work.

UCR, the premier institution for the education and exhibition of University of California’s collections of photography asked Photomation’s Master Printer, John Hesketh, to help interpret, print and design the framing for the exhibition. The pictures above and below show the finished work taken at the gallery opening for the artist’s show.

Gatti’s work explores mysterious archeological objects and cultures displaced from the war-torn areas of Lampedusa, Syria, and Iraq. His images just barely emerge from the paper that they are printed on and hang as ghosts in their white frames.

Massimiliano Gatti’s exhibition titled, “Passages: Five Projects from Lampedusa,Syria, and Iraq” is currently on view until September 5, 2015, at the California Museum of Photography at the ARTSblock 3824 Main Street, Downtown Riverside, CA.

Training Wheels

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Genesis Academy, had a former Hollywood make-up trailer they wanted to brand and take to schools. This trailer, or pod, is used to house computers and other equipment and acts as a portable technology laboratory.

Partnering with Arlon Graphics, Montroy Supplies and OCRV, Photomation did the design, print and installation of the graphics on this 30′×9′ trailer. After several designs were reviewed, one was selected and put into production. We used Arlon DPF 6100 XRP adhesive vinyl with Gloss 3210 lamination. Our professional installers put up the graphics at the OCRV facility.

The interior as well as the exterior was wrapped for this project. The end result is a trailer that creates a learning environment and stimulates students to stretch their imagination.

The Genesis pod is a state-of-art mobile STEM laboratory bringing the latest equipment for 3D printing, Computer Aided Design, and Engineering to students for hands-on Science education and inspiration. Bringing STEM education to the masses with mobile units is revolutionizing how kids learn.
