S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • August 2016 • 57 WRAPS DIGITAL GRAPHICS Sign & Digital Graphics presents some of the industry's latest wrap projects. If you have a recent project that you would like to share, please send a sample of your wrap project to Ma Dixon at Wraps Projects Shop Van Wrap Ron Kemmel of Kemmel Design in Kewaskum, Wisconsin, created this design for his shop van. It is fully wrapped in 3M IJ80c Controltac and finished with 3M 8520 matte laminate. "A ton of hours were spent in the highly detailed artwork that goes with the logo name and flows seamlessly from side to back to side of the van," Kemmel says. "Everything was completed using my Roland printer and Adobe illustrator and Photoshop software." Quick Turnaround Water Taxi Brockdodds in Percell, Oklahoma, did this water taxi project for the NBA playoffs in 2012. "For the Oklahoma City Thunder Water Taxi project for the 2012 playoffs, I was contacted by Bricktown Water Taxi to update the taxi's look for a visit from Charles Barkley," says Craig Dodds. "Barkley had been trash talking OKC. The Thunder provided art files that I worked with to add the various graphics you see on the taxi, plus on the OKC zoo boats. The taxi was pulled from the river. In 48 hours, it was painted, vinyl graphics applied, carpet, seat cushions, chairs painted with individual seat cushions, custom top with Thunder logo sewn on." A Roland GX 24 was used to cut the various logos—old school, multiple colors layered, Dodds says. "The project was completed over the Labor Day weekend, and it just so happened our large-format printer was down," Dodds says. "The GX 24 saved the day once again." Oracle 651 was used for logos and general coverage of the boat. Three people completed it start to finish in 40 hours. SDG
