Partnering with KFI AM 640, Caterina’s Club

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Photomation has signed up to support Caterina’s Club’s 7th Annual PastaThon by being a drop off for donations of pasta and sauce. Running through December 7th, just come by during office hours, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and we will collect the food donations and get them to the charity.

Due to a fire at The White House in February, KFI AM 640 will be doing a live broadcast from the Christ Cathedral located in Garden Grove on Friday, December 8th. The entire day’s programming will be live starting with Bill Handel at 5:00 a.m. in the morning and running through the Tim Conway show ending at 10:00 p.m. that evening.

Caterina’s Club is an organization started by The White House founder Bruno Serato in honor of his mother to feed motel families. The charity has been featured on CNN when Bruno’s effort to feed people in his community was part of the American Hero’s program. Caterina’s Club feeds more than 3,300 kids a night in 48 locations in 15 cities in Orange and Los Angeles Counties.

We can accept any donation of dry pasta and sauce at our location. NO CASH CAN BE ACCEPTED BY US, pasta and sauce only, please.

Thank you for your support of Caterina’s Club!

Cabling Systems for Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

There are many ways to display graphics on the wall. One of the more popular methods is to use a cabling system like you see above. Made from stainless steel components, this system allows for graphics to be easily changed out and also serves as a decorative feature for your office lobby, boardroom or any place you want to use graphics.

You can choose grippers that hold the graphic from the sides or from the top and bottom. You can also select grippers that hold various thicknesses of mounted graphics.

Cable lengths can be customized to your unique installation needs. We’ve used cabling systems to display 4′×8′ graphics mounted to ½″ thick acrylic as well as the 22″×28″ posters featured above.

If you are interested in knowing more about how these cabling systems could work for you, give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you choose the right graphic display solution for your needs.

Sticky Situation

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Wallcovering adhesives are available in several different types, each one is made for specific applications. Some pastes are made for light-weight and delicate wallcoverings and others are made to adhere heavy-weight vinyl.

For the custom digital wallcoverings produced at, for clear adhesives, we recommend using either Roman Adhesive’s Pro-838 Heavy Duty Clear Adhesive or Ultra Pro-880. For clay adhesives, we recommend Gardner-Gibson’s Dynamite 111 Heavy Duty Clay Wallcovering Adhesive. This clay adhesive offers superior final bond, prevents seam spreading and curling, and has high solids for a strong, durable hold.

As with any custom installation, we always recommend testing the materials to ensure the proper match for the best adhesive performance based on your unique application. This will help all of us avoid a sticky situation.
