It is not everyday we are invited to help produce and install graphics for a food truck without wheels. When asked we jumped at the chance to assist. After reviewing client drawings and visual comps we discussed many options. We needed to make sure what we produced would hold up outdoors and also include a graffiti resistant characteristic as well. In the end we used our UV Flatbed printer to image graphics directly onto sign makers metal (max metal), added anti-graffiti laminate and then cut to various sizes.
We also printed large full color graphics, mounted to 1” black thick PVC again added the laminate and then router cut into 4 foot colorful dimensional circles for added visual appeal. After the client press checked everything on a Friday night we printed, trimmed and fabricated all the parts to be ready for the Wednesday morning install (no pressure sense the press conference was scheduled for Thursday whether we were ready or not). Just another project in the fun world of signage and event graphics.
What made this particularly special was the mission to increase the availability of fresh fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods to those without convenient access to grocery stores and farmers’ markets near the North Hanley and Wellston Metrolink stations.
