Ampco Grafix worked with the SMAK agency to help create 20 festive snowmen for the holiday Torontoland event, sponsored by Tourism Toronto.

The 7-foot, hard-coated foam snowmen bodies were engineered by Big Buzz Designs in British Columbia and sported designs created by city artists. Ampco produced the graphics templates and executed the output. Print production involved a trio of EFI printers – the Vutek 150, Vutek 200, and Vutek 3360, all with EFI Fiery RIP – onto 3M white self-adhesive vinyls with laminates. Computer cutting and hand trimming finished the job. Overall, the project took nearly 320 man-hours and involved 16 technicians.

When Torontonians snapped a photo of one of the snowmen scattered throughout the downtown area and posted it to Torontoland’s Facebook page, Tourism Toronto donated $2 to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
