If you caught the 2013 Grammy Awards, you saw musician Jack White and the Peacocks rocking the stage, with Brooke Waggoner playing an electric-blue Baldwin Grand Piano. That piano was expertly wrapped by Sino Tour, co-owner of Icon Image Graphics (iconimagegraphics.com) and an associate, utilizing 3M Scotchprint Wrap Film Series 1080 and Knifeless Tech’s Knifeless Tape.

Because the piano was on loan, they were not allowed to take it apart to complete the wrap since doing so could damage the keys. Top challenges, says Tour: the piano’s pedal and its pillar-esque legs (“we had to crawl underneath and wrap each one separately”). The show’s art director provided tips on how lighting, staging, and camera shots would affect the piano’s look on stage once wrapped.
