Big Picture

While the Twin Cities’ Mall of America – home to more than 500 stores – waited on a retailer to occupy vacant shop space, the area needed to be blocked off, preferably with temporary walls adorned with eye-catching graphics. Enter Grafix Shoppe (, a digital print business in Eagan, Minnesota, that regularly works with the Mall. The “canvas” that required covering: six 32-foot-high white plasterboard walls. Grafix Shoppe produced graphics designed by local agency Zimmer Madich via the shop’s HP Latex 22500 printer, and then installed 6000 feet of 3M Envision Print Wrap Film 4810Cv3 onto the vertically paneled walls. Installation took 11 hours, over night, by three installers.
