Applied Graphics & Signs used Drytac SpotOn to project-manage installation a giant set of window graphics for a Los Angeles cinema.
Graphic installation and project management company Applied Graphics & Signs recently used Drytac SpotOn Clear Gloss media, flood coated with white for opacity, to produce an eye-catching set of window graphics to promote the Hollywood blockbuster film ‘Babylon’.
For its latest project, Applied Graphics & Signs was approached by National Installation and Olson Visuals to project manage and install a giant set of window graphics to celebrate the launch of ‘Babylon’, a new film starring A-listers Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Tobey Maguire, at Los Angeles-based cinema AMC The Grove.
Such was the scope and size of the job, Applied Graphics & Signs linked up with partners National Installations, a full-service labour and project management specialist, and Olson Visual, a global provider of visual marketing stunts.
The application space measured 559” wide x 220” high and required 54 panels to be trimmed to fit each glass panel of the cinema’s giant windows. With image quality and reliable adhesion both of paramount importance, Olson Visual chose to work with Drytac SpotOn media, which it purchased from Epic Distribution.
“This specific product was chosen for this short-term application as it can be easily repositioned in tight obstructed areas,” Applied Graphics & Signs President Fadi Ballut said. “Using Drytac SpotOn, we saved time on installation with a dry application, rather than traditional routes of a wet applied film for second surface.”
The graphics, which included large-scale images of some of the film’s leading names, were printed onto the media using a Durst Rho 512R 5-metre roll-to-roll UV-Curable machine with Fadi saying the customer was delighted with the final application.
“They were ecstatic with the results of our production partners and installation team,” Fadi concludes.
