2008 Vehicle Graphics Contest — Promotional Vehicles

A well-done vehicle wrap provides an effective, mobile billboard



First Place

Amidst the depths of the worst real-estate market in generations, even the most successful agents must take aggressive measures for name recognition. Using Flexi™ Pro and Photoshop® software, Marshburn and Bailey integrated Burke’s caricature into the wrap graphics. The fabrication team produced the graphics on Vital Signs’ Mimaki JV3 printer with 3M™ Controltac™ IJ 180-10C air-egress film and Clear Focus Imaging perforated-window film. 3M’s 8519 luster-finish overlaminate protects the graphics.

Second Place

When legendary Hollywood director Martin Scorsese directs a documentary about one of the most iconic bands in music history, grand-format vehicle graphics are definitely in order. Media ’n’ Motion, a Los Angeles-based firm, sold the ad space on this fuel tanker, which makes deliveries throughout the City of Angels. Ferrari Color produced the wrap, which spans 760 sq. ft., on its Durst 160R UV-cure-ink printer with 3M’s Controltac IJ180-10C with Comply® air-egress film. Ferrari Color selected 3M’s 8519 luster-finish overlaminate to protect the graphics.


Third Place

Judges liked the simplicity and vivid colors, and there’s a hint of The Simpsons in the cartoonish design, which Torri composed using Adobe Illustrator software. She suggested a partial wrap to the client to keep the project within their budget, and it blends nicely with the green Honda Element. Edge Digital Graphics fabricated the wrap using 3M’s Controltac IJ 180-10C film and 8519 luster-finish overlaminate, which it produced on a Mimaki JV3 solvent-ink printer. For the windows, In-Depth applied Clear Focus Imaging’s perforated window film and clear topcoat.
