Promoting Sci-Fest 08

Commerce Color helps St. Louis Science Center with international science event.

In order to promote Sci-Fest International, a five-day science extravaganza held this past autumn, the St. Louis Science Center contacted Commerce Color to outfit its massive north-facing window with graphics.

The Science Center supplied the art for the print in a digital file. Using its 5-meter HP Scitex XL Jet Premium (now badged as the HP Scitex XL 1500) and HP Scitex inks, Commerce Color produced several sections that would fit the window’s many different dimensions. In total, more than 672 square feet of graphics were printed using Flexcon’s SeeThruSign media so that visitors inside could still see through the window. The final 24 x 28-foot graphic, which could be easily seen from the highway, took five hours to print, Commerce Color reports.

The main graphic was complemented by a 10 x 45-foot overhanging banner, also produced by Commerce Color’s XL Jet, on 13-ounce vinyl.
