AMI Graphics Event Signage Shines at the BAA 10K

The AMI Events Crew was down in Boston this past weekend for the Boston Athletic Association 10K.  The 10K starts and ends at Boston Common and winds through the streets of Boston’s Back Bay.  This year marks the 6th running of the BAA 10K as well as the 6 year that AMI Graphics has provided the event signage and logistics for the event.  We are proud of our strong and continued relationship with the BAA and look forward to many more events with them, no matter the distance!

We love running events (and all events!) and the challenge that they pose by needing a large amount of temporary signage set-up and taken down within the small window that the race has with the roads closed.  At the BAA 10K, there are also multiple, spread out areas that have different event signage needs such as: wayfinding signage around Boston Common and incoming public transit stations, registration & baggage area signs, course maps, sponsor signage, event mesh windscreen, start and finish truss signage, and the ever important break tape.

Vinyl Banner Course Map

The BAA uses vinyl banners on adjustable frames to display larger than life course maps and race day schedules.

Registration A-Frames

A-Frames hold wayfinding signage so runners can easily find areas such as registration and information, while vinyl banners and coroplast signage are used on the tents where they can easily be seen.

Sponsor Signage

Sponsor signage lines crowd control barriers on areas that are heavily trafficked by runners and spectators.  The BAA chose to use single panel sponsor signage on each barrier but event mesh windscreen could also be easily used instead.  A-frames are also a great option for sponsor signage or other temporary signage needs that need to be self-standing.

Sponsor A-Frames

Event Mesh

Event mesh windscreens provide both event and organization specific visual branding to the crowd control barriers at the start/finish chute.  Event mesh windscreen gives the BAA the perfect way to make the barriers visually appealing while also promoting their brand.

Start Finish Truss and Break Tape

AMI installed column wraps as well as the branded vinyl banner to the start/finish truss.  This branded truss combined with the event mesh windscreen on the crowd control barriers and the custom event break tape help to visually enhance this top notch event.

Wellesley College Wall Mural

Project Highlight: Wellesley College

Wellesley College, located west of Boston, MA, is widely considered one of the nation’s top colleges for women. When the College decided to renovate the Dorothy Towne Fieldhouse, they turned to AMI Graphics to transform the brand new white walls into a showcase of school history and spirit.

Wellesley College Wall Mural

Marni Friedman, the Associate Director of Facilities and Operations, contacted AMI with ideas for projects in mind. Soon after that, a site survey was conducted in late March to determine exact measurements of the areas in question. AMI’s Creative Department prepared a number of proofs which were presented to Wellesley College in order to come up with a final plan for the projects.

Wellesley College Wall Murals

Installations took place on two separate days, and the results are fantastic. A wall mural showcasing Wellesley College’s rich rowing history adorns the wall of their Boathouse. This mural required careful attention as historic photographs needed to be scaled up to fit the size of the space. The end result is a stunning ode to the program’s past.

A number of wall graphics were installed along the track surrounding the perimeter of the Fieldhouse as well as in their Spinning Room. Walls that stood stark white before install now stand out with oversized graphics encouraging student-athletes towards success.

TD Garden On Ice

Playing with the Pros: Boston Bruins and TD Garden

At AMI Graphics, we pride ourselves on our capabilities and expertise in working with and providing innovative signage solutions to a variety of industries.  We got our start almost two decades ago by providing sports and event signage to teams and organizations within minor league professional sports, and we have continued those strong relationships to this day while also forming new ones within major league professional sports, such as the NHL. 

The 2016-17 hockey season will mark the 8th year of our partnership with the Boston Bruins and their home, the TD Garden, and we can’t wait to get started! From sponsor signage and visual branding to specific event signage, AMI Graphics is counted on to keep the signage at the TD Garden and their related assets within North Station, located underneath the Garden, looking sharp at all times. 

Door Decals

Whether you’re watching from home or at the Garden, you’ll see AMI produced and installed dasher board graphics.   AMI also provides the window graphics on the glass behind the benches and penalty boxes.  Ice resurfacer wraps are a favorite of ours.  We have completed countless ice resurfacer wraps for the Garden over the years ranging from complex sponsor graphics to simple team branded graphics for the Stanley Cup Champions Parade.

Dasher Board Graphics

In a venue the size of the TD Garden, there is a lot of space that if left blank, can make for a very uninviting fan atmosphere while also leaving significant sponsor dollars on the table.  AMI has been continuously called upon to dress up these blank spaces with custom wall murals, elevator wraps, pole wraps, concessions signage, sponsor signage, backlit signs, and much more.

Locker Room Hallway Wall Mural

From site surveys and design through production and installation on projects both simple and complex, we put our signage expertise to work for the TD Garden and Boston Bruins to ensure that they, as well as their respective clients, are pleased with each and every project.  Demonstrating their respect for our work, the TD Garden and Boston Bruins frequently refer us to the staff of incoming events for their signage needs as well.

Ice Resurfacer Wrap

AMI Graphics is also proud of our relationship with the New Jersey Devils and the Prudential Center as the provider of their dasher board graphics, vinyl banners and mesh banners for fan fests, barricade covers, ice resurfacer wraps, window murals, media backdrops, and more as we continue our march forward in the world of professional sports at the highest levels.
