There’s no mistaking Imagination Corp.’s distinctive style. Their sign system for a small pub/restaurant in a family entertainment center required the use of EnRoute Pro software, a MultiCam 3000 series CNC router and MultiCam plasma cutter. The signs are fabricated from 30-lb. Precision Board and plate steel, held together with Abracadabra Magic-Sculpt and finished with acrylic paints. The six signs, designed to entertain and tell the story of the enchanted-garden-themed pub, sell whimsy rather than a specific brand of spirits.
