Here are the first two flavors of the new Swerve franchise vehicle graphics.
This week we had a new type of vehicle for Bob’s Heating and Air Conditioning. We wrapped 2 of the new Ford Transit Van’s with High Roofs. Sometimes integrating a new vehicle type into an existing fleet can be difficult. But I think we did a pretty good job with these.
We also did a very busy, but interesting wrap on a 2015 GMC Acadia for Logo Unlimited.
Have a great weekend everybody.
Here are few projects from this week at JJ Graphics & Signs. We designed and manufactured a really nice A-Frame sign for the folks at Earth Pet. I think the colors came out great. Next up we got some vinyl stickers for Buccaneer Mining Company. With the Tuff-Cal extra thick clear over laminate these stickers will be ultra durable and last 5 – 7 years out side. Finally we made a 1/2″ thick Gator foam sign for Dresser Rands new location in Bellevue, WA. We used 1″ stand offs to give it the look of floating off the wall.
One of our local State Farm insurance companies needed new acrylic sign faces for an illuminated sign. There are a couple ways to make the logo and lettering for an illuminated sign face. The first is to use pre-colored translucent vinyl and cut the logo and lettering from two different colors. They would then be put together on the acrylic sign face. The second choice is to print the entire face on translucent printable vinyl, cover that with a matte clear over-laminate and then mount them to the acrylic. As you can see from the photos we chose to go with the second option. This is a more cost effective choice for the customer and it will save on labor charges if they decide to reface the acrylic with new graphics in the future.
This is some truly impressive software. We use the very software they are talking about in this video. It’s just not this cool yet.
The owners of this car were referred to us by Fiat of Kirkland. They had just purchased this green Fiat 500 and wanted to personalize it with some racing stripes. So Wham! Here it is!
A few weeks ago we donated signs to the Global Divers Golf Tournament – Benefiting Seattle Children’s Hospital. In the last five years Global Divers has raised $265,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital. This year the contributions are helping fund the Single Ventricle Program, specifically supporting feeding equipment and training to have babies off supplemental oxygen and on track to leave the hospital without feeding tubes and be able to eat normally. This can have a huge effect on improving the care and results for kids so dependent on multiple surgical procedures and intensive care unit stays.
Kathlyn from 1st Driving Excellence in Bellevue, WA contacted us a few weeks ago and wanted to come up with a fun new vehicle brand for their fleet of cars. Since their new vehicles are black, we came up with a contrasting look that would emphasize on their logo and motto. We used perforated window vinyl for the back and small side windows, allowing them to advertize and not obstruct the view of their students.
Since we do a lot of Vehicle Wraps here in Kirklalnd, WA. I thought most of you would want to see how this is installed. The YouTube video is presented by Roland DGA (this is who we bought our printers from). The actual installation and design is taking place at Richard Childress Racing. I chose this because it is a high quality video and it illustrates the process very well. Hope you all enjoy it.
Environix asked us to design and make graphics for their new 2014 Transit Connect Van. After the design was approved, we applied a combination of High Performance cut vinyl and Perforated Window vinyl to the van. The perforated window vinyl allows for coverage of the window and the ability to still see out of it.
