I Love This Bar

Subtitle: 
An over-sized guitar goes patriotic with a wrap from Megaprint Inc.

With a name like Megaprint Inc., it’s pretty clear what this print service provider handles: mega-huge prints, in particular, custom wallpaper. So when country music star Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill bought a plot in Rancho Cucamonga, California’s Victoria Gardens Regional Town Center, it took only a Google search to nail down a print provider. Named after Keith’s 2003 number-one single of the same name, I Love This Bar makes its West Coast-debut with its 11th franchise later this year.

Tickled Pink for a Cause

Subtitle: 
Rainier Industries creates building wrap and more for Kroger.

To help support National Breast Cancer Awareness last October, grocery retailer Kroger turned its Cincinnati-based corporate headquarters pink as part of its “Giving Hope a Hand” campaign.

Along with pink lighting, the job called for a dozen four- and nine-foot tall double-sided pole banners, a 36 x 6-foot skyway mural, and two 150 x 30-foot mesh banners that draped the Kroger headquarters building. Print provider Rainier Industries of Tukwila, Washington was chosen to output the graphics.

Super Bowl Ask Me!

Subtitle: 
Backpack banners featured at the Super Bowl.

Attendees at the recent Super Bowl in Indianapolis could get quick answers to their questions by taking them to “Ask Me” volunteers sponsored by the city’s Super Bowl Host Committee. The “Ask Me” folk were especially easy to be found in the crowd thanks to backpack banners generated by Indy’s own Redirections Sign & Design. Redirections worked with display specialist Tex Vision to produce 20 of the 2 x 5-foot banners.
