The customer, who operates a website that teaches people how to play craps, wanted to use his boat as a calling card when traversing Lake Havasu and other Grand Canyon State waterways. The designers used Adobe’s Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as Signburst’s SuperNova design workstation. Using a Mimaki JV3-160SP printer, Arizona Color printed the program on 3M’s Controltac with Comply v3 film. Its protective coating comprises 3M’s 8518 glossy overlaminate applied with a Seal 62 wide-format laminator.

Client
Todd Brunner

Wright and his team artfully carried out Brunner’s desire for a “dancing with the devil” graphic theme (he’ll certainly turn heads in whatever body of water he raises anchor). For this 40-ft.-long, restored powerboat, the shop produced airbrush graphics with House of Kolor and R&M Diamont paints, which it applied over Gerbermask film cut by a Roland SP 300V cutting plotter.
