“Our specialty is customers that wait until the last minute for huge jobs and then come to us to save the day,” laughs Myles Proseus, an installer/printer/jack-of-all-trades at Chantilly, Virginia’s Brandvizion. The brand and communications company has saved the day for more than a few clients, printing onto any substrate imaginable, from surfboards and antique pine boards to rusty steel plates and ceiling tiles.

The shop was in for a one-of-a-kind job when Orangetheory Fitness came in, envisioning an RV as bold as the gym’s vibrant brand. Always up for a challenge, the shop printed 500 square feet of graphics onto 3M Controltac IJ180 film with an EFI Vutek GS2000 printer. It took Proseus a little over a week to install the huge wrap: “It was definitely tedious,” he comments. “Each panel on the RV is curved almost every inch. It’s like siding on a house – almost to where I could not get a flat spot to even put a squeegee.” But it paid off: “It’s a design you can see from outer space; it was really cool to see that driving away.”
