At Signs for Success we pride ourselves on “Quick Turns, Perfect Color and Outstanding Customer Service!” Recently, we got a call from Emily Galen at Boston Barricade in Florida who needed a “Quick Turn” on mall wall wraps in time for the Thanksgiving Shopping Weekend. Their client Francesca’s was opening a new store at River Park Square in downtown Spokane, WA.
Use mall wall wraps to make a building remodel site more attractive and to advertise for the new tenant.
The construction barricade had been installed but the wall wraps needed to be printed and installed in less than 24 hours. Whenever possible we want to measure before we print to make sure the files the client is supplying will fit the space. The call came in mid-afternoon, and we were able to get to the mall at 5:00pm to take measurements, which in this case averted problems since the client did not have accurate measurements of the barricade.
The scramble was then on to get the art re-sent with the corrected measurements. Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger was able to work with Christopher Hayden, Manager of Graphic Services at Boston Barricade to facilitate getting the print files pushed to production that evening. “I was checking the files and pushing them through as quickly as Christopher could upload them,” Vanessa said. “All told it was 457 megs of graphic files which worked into a production file of 22 panels that were 52″ wide and 72” tall. The total graphic area was 6′ tall by over 100′ long.” Despite the challenges of such a short deadline coupled with changes to artwork and a 3-hour time difference, we had the job printing by 7:00pm.
The printing took just over four hours, and was done by 11:30pm that evening, ready for the install team the next morning. We printed graphics on 3M adhesive vinyl. The adhesive is removable which means when the store is ready to open the graphics can be removed and the barricade panels disassembled and ready to ship to the next location. This reuse of the barricades minimizes expense to the client and reduces waste in the landfill.
