Appetizing Graphics

KnowledgeByte Main Image

“Sales are up 30% since the new wallpaper has been installed”, beamed Boeing Long Beach’s Cafeteria Manager. Photomation was asked by the Architect of the Facilities Department to help renovate the graphics for their cafeteria. The goal was to create a warmer, more inviting eating experience.

To accomplish that, we reproduced outdoor scenes of different California locations onto wallpaper to give the room some brightness and excitement. We also produced wallpaper with pictures of fruits and vegetables for the kitchen and serving areas.

New carpet, tables and chairs were installed and new paint applied, all to put a fresh face on an older facility. More people are using the cafeteria than before and sales are up. Appetizing graphics, indeed.

Beijing Bound

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Getting ready for his 7th Olympics competition, Francisco Flores, Production Manager at Photomation, will be heading to Beijing, China very soon. Working for Eastman Kodak since the 1996 games in Atlanta, Francisco has been part of an elite team of people who are called upon to run the Kodak processing facility wherever the Olympics are held. His travels have taken him to Olympic Games Atlanta; Nagano, Japan; Sidney, Australia; Salt Lake City; Athens, Greece and Torino, Italy.

His duties at each Olympics has evolved as technology has evolved. He started out processing film in Atlanta, then managing the processing department, then managing the press center in Sestiere, Italy.

“This has been a great opportunity to be part of the Olympic movement with Eastman Kodak Company. I have developed many friendships and experiences that are very unique. The Beijing Olympics will bring new challenges and I look forward to working through them.”

All of us at Photomation wish Francisco safe travels and we look forward to hearing about his experiences in Beijing.

Easy as A-B-C

This week we want to highlight our dimensional lettering services. You see them everywhere you go, at the store, at the bank, at the hospital, at the museum. These letters are used for directional signage, area designation signage or your company’s logo. We can output just about anything you can imagine.

There are different types of letters we can make for you depending on the application and desired effect. From thicknesses of 1/8” to 1” or more, we can get your message across using a variety of plastics, metal-coated boards, or chrome-dipped letters. And, of course, we can install them, too.

The next time you need dimensional lettering, give Photomation a call. We’ll be happy to help you turn your ideas into a wall of fame.

Grand Mural Makes Grand Entrance, Part 2

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Designed by our client, Montanio Design, this large feature wall at St. Joseph Hospital’s new Cancer Center, is seen from the main entrance. It serves as a backdrop behind a grand staircase leading to lower levels of the Center.

The mural, shown here in its initial phase of installation, measures nearly 27 feet tall by 27 feet wide. Working with Photomation’s Account Executive Ralph Love, our team produced custom wallpaper measuring 19 feet wide and running the entire two-story height of the wall. In addition, we fabricated a rounded decorative piece and installed supplied fine art wallpaper to complete the first phase of installation.

In coming weeks we will be adding to the feature wall elements of river rock, cut eco-resin using stand offs, textured glass panels, sculpted wood features and cut vinyl to finish this dramatic wall graphic. It is a grand mural that makes for a grand entrance.

Lacking Lettering Lamentation

KnowledgeByte Main Image

With the grand opening of St. Joseph Hospital’s new Cancer Center less than two weeks away, we were asked if we could help solve a little dilemma that had cropped up. Seems that the permanent lettering, ordered from another vendor, for a wall seen from the street and the lettering to go around the main entrance circular drive was not going to be ready in time for the opening. Our client, St. Joseph Health System, asked if we could help them get temporary lettering installed in time for the big event.

Working with Account Executive Ralph Love and Production Manager Francisco Flores, we created temporary lettering to represent what the final letters would look like once they were on-site and installed. Using brushed metallic vinyl applied to 1/4” Sintra, each letter was cut out and installed in-position with Velcro. The circular drive lettering measured 18” tall by 510” long and the street entrance lettering measured 36’x120”.

The client was thrilled with the result and thankful we could come up with a creative solution to their problem. The grand opening was held with great fanfare and nobody was the wiser that the signage was only temporary. Now, there was no need for a lacking lettering lamentation.
