Celebrating 9 years of Knowledge Bytes

KnowledgeByte Main Image

With today’s edition, we celebrate our 9th year of weekly posts showcasing our client’s visions being turned into reality. From creating casts around pillars to installing wallcovering on concave ceilings, the range of work we have had the privilege to produce has stretched us to use technology and imagination to find the right solution to each client’s need.

Each project has unique requirements that must be met. We listen to what our client needs, talk with them about ideas and options to enhance their project or save them money, and then create a plan to help them achieve their goals.

Our breadth of experience working with a wide variety of clients allows us to help them achieve award-winning results and receive the accolades of their peers and bosses.

We love what we do and we look forward to helping you achieve great results for another nine years. Give us a call on your next project. We are happy to help.

Heating Up a Curve

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Cal Tech Federal Credit Union, needed to add signage to brand a new Home Loan Center they recently opened. One of the challenges of the project was to put dimensional lettering onto a curved surface. Working with their Photomation Account Executive, Francisco Flores, designs were submitted for approval from both the client and the city. Once approved, permits were pulled and fabrication of the signage began.

As a licensed contractor, Photomation is able to get permits for the projects we fabricate and install. This frees our client’s time, resources and money so they don’t have to worry about this part of the process.

Making the letters for the curved wall required careful measurements to ensure the proper end result. Letters were fabricated from 1″ and ½″ acrylic and painted with Mathews paint for durability. To install the acrylic curved letters we had to fabricate a template to the perfect radius and place it in a 400º oven to get the template to match the curve we needed. Custom LED lighting was also fabricated for the curved wall. Our professional installers completed the project to create great looking signs. The client was thrilled with the results and grateful the complicated process was so easy.

Do you have a unique application of signs you need for your office or building? Give us a call. We’d be happy to help bring your vision to reality.

Guiding to Greater Graphics

Our client, Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, wanted to update a window graphic we had installed for them several years ago. Working with company president, Charlene Hesketh, a file was submitted for approval.

As is sometimes the case with large format imaging, resolution from provided files can be too low to produce a good looking graphic. Charlene worked with the client to create the right resolution file that could yield a great result. Full-scale proofs were made from this file and approved for production.

Using 3M 180C with 8519 lam, the graphics were put up across nine windowpanes by our professional installer. Our client was thrilled with the result and grateful for our help to make the final graphic look so good.

Do you have a need for large format graphics and not sure how to proceed? Give us a call. Photomation has helped lots of clients get better results. We are happy to help guide you to greater graphics.

Wrappin’ in San Diego

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, San Diego Gulls Hockey Club, needed to get one of their Zamboni ice resurfacing machines wrapped for their sponsor, Wawanesa Insurance Company. The Gulls are the AHL affiliate for the Anaheim Ducks. Working with the minor league club’s sponsorship department, ideas were floated and designs presented to their client. After a few rounds of approvals, a final design was chosen. Turnaround was tight as there was a game in 48 hours where the newly wrapped machine would be unveiled.

Using 180C with 8519 lam the graphic was printed in Anaheim and brought down to the Gulls arena in San Diego. Installation was performed by our team of professional installers and took about 6 hours. The completed project was ready in time for the hockey game the next day.

Do you have an unusual vehicle you would like to wrap? If so, give us a call. We’d be happy to bring your vision to reality.
