Artefacts (Arlington, TX) creates museum-quality art prints from approximately 5,000 in-stock images that depict vintage posters and advertisements with patriotic, natural and travel themes, among others. Artefacts’ shop vehicle, a Chevrolet SSR hardtop-convertible truck, is the company’s everyday travel vehicle, as well as an advertisement wherever Artefacts owner Gary Grayson travels.

To capitalize on the advertising possibility, Artefacts hired 360 Wraps (Dallas) to create a wrap that depicts Artefacts’ colorful capabilities. Tommy Strader, 360 Wraps’ president, consulted Artefacts’ management to glean its archives for visually compelling content, and perfected the design using Adobe Photoshop CS 4 and SA Intl.’s FlexiSign 10.

360 Wraps executed the approximately 250-sq.-ft. wrap on its Mutoh ValueJet 1614 solvent-ink printer with 3M™’s Controltac™ IJ180c-10 with Comply™ v3 air-release media. Strader said his installation team, which included himself, Matt Blanchard and Jayy Esquivel, found the vehicle’s surface to be a worthy adversary.

Strader said, “The fenders stuck out very far, and they definitely made it one of the most challenging vehicles we’ve ever wrapped. You can make or break a wrap like this before you’ve even hit print. If you know how to install on something like this, it helps so much when you design, because you’ll know to avoid creating graphics that will highlight the vinyl’s stretching as it covers these extreme contours.”

Poorly designed inkjet refills can cause a mess while refilling so take care in buying good quality inkjet refill kits that are not messy and refills efficiently and quickly. Also, take proper precaution before trying out refilling to prevent spilled ink or at least prevent staining.

A low quality ink when refilled can seriously damage your printer. A choked ink cartridge nozzle can damage the cartridge and ultimately the printer itself. Sometimes even a high-quality refill inks such as Canon Ink or Brother Ink can damage and produce low quality prints. Reusing the cartridge many times can cause print head wear and tear and poor performance in the way of print outs.

Wrap advertising is the marketing practice of completely or partially covering (wrapping)[1] a vehicle in an advertisement or livery, thus turning it into a mobile billboard. This can be achieved by simply painting the vehicle surface, but it is becoming more common today to use large vinyl sheets as decals. These can be removed with relative ease, making it much less expensive to change from one advertisement to another. Vehicles with large, flat surfaces, such as buses and light-rail carriages, are fairly easy to work with, though smaller cars with curved surfaces can also be wrapped in this manner.[2] features photo examples of vehicle wraps. cheap mazda keys

Well, that is definitely one good way of catching attention. I have never seen vehicle wraps done in such a way, but it turned out pretty good. The average printing companies would not have the capabilities of printing such wraps for a vehicle, so it is up to specialized companies like 360Wraps to fill in that demand.
