Client
Outdoor Channel

“Driven,” a hunting-based reality show on the Outdoor Channel, features the outdoorsy husband-and-wife team of Pat and Nicole Reeve. What better way to promote the show as they travel from hunting site to hunting site than a massive RV wrap? The design obviously required considerable care – there are quite a few tones of gray and brown, and sponsor logos to incorporate without making it look like a racecar. Creative Color Studio produced the wrap using 3M Controltac IJ180-10C air-release media that’s printed on an HP DesignJet L28500 latex-ink printer.

Never Grow Up Transportation

When someone hears the phrase “never grow up,” Peter Pan is likely their first thought. But, the Prince of Neverland isn’t quite the right message for a party bus. Rather, a scene of silhouetted, carefree revelers is just the promotional ticket. The shop produced the wrap with Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions’ MPI 1005 Supercast film, which was decorated on an HP DesignJet L260 latex-ink printer. Avery’s DOL 1360 overlaminate, applied with a Seal 62 laminator, will keep the partiers at play for years to come.

Client
Clarksville.com Realty

Clarksville.com Realty enlisted the Clarksville Transit System to assist in this behemoth wrap’s development. King Kong may seem an improbable pitchcreature (new word?) for a real-estate agency, but it certainly attracts eyes. The shop produced the wrap with 3M Controltac air-release media that’s decorated on an Epson SureColor S30670 high-capacity, solvent-ink printer. The beastly graphics will remain in good shape thanks to a layer of 3M Scotchcal 8518 glossy overlaminate, which was applied on a Seal 54EL. Avery felt squeegees were used to apply the wrap.
