The quaint city of roughly 13,000 people has a rich history its residents are keen to preserve and celebrate. 

Marietta Main Street, a local nonprofit advocating for economic development through historic preservation, called upon local print shop Signality Signs and Graphics to brighten up Butler Street with local historic photo murals. Signality printed and installed five brick murals, using a Roland SolJet Pro4 XR-640 to print onto 279 square feet of 3M Envision SV480mC film with Envision Gloss Wrap Overlaminate 8548G.
