Georgia Tech, a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, has quickly become prominent in the NCAA tennis discussion. Calling downtown Atlanta their home, the Yellow Jackets are also the home of the ACC Men’s Tennis Player of the Year, Christopher Eubanks.
The Tennis Facilities at Georgia Tech are second to none, but the interior of the indoor facility was lacking by the standards of the facilities team. The new Ken Byers Tennis Complex stands in place of the original facility, doubling the courts and making it comparable to other top of the line schools in the ACC. The white walls, however, did not fit with the rest of the cohesive school branding on the courts.
Georgia Tech had worked with AMI Graphics on other projects in the past, so when they had the idea to add adhesive graphics to the indoor vent covers, they came to AMI for the trusted quality and service. The facilities management team wanted to use the many white air vents to create a cohesive look spelling out Georgia Tech and separating the two words with the GT logo
AMI received the measurements for the custom graphics and went to work. By using vinyl decals on the air vents, the impact was large but the footprint was small seeing as the space is normally overlooked. Proofs were sent for approval and the final product was shipped to Atlanta. They were put into place by a trusted local installation team, and upon completion, it was no surprise how big of a change it made in the look and feel of the new facility. Adding the small touches changed the feel of the courts and gave the team more of a home advantage with the school branding surrounding them.
Adhesive Decals are just one of the ways that schools can make an impact on students, athletes, and recruits. By adding custom signage solutions to athletic facilities and continuing to refresh the look, schools can stay competitive. Schools can also let athletes know that they are important to the school community and that the are continued to be supported by directors, coaches, and administrators. With new signage, athletic buildings and fields can look as if a major renovation has taken place at a fraction of the cost.
AMI’s team is here to help with any size project, and has the tools to create an individual result. From site surveys, to our talented creative and production teams, we can make your project take often forgotten spaces and revamp them to give your school a new look and feel.
Coastal Carolina University, located in the eastern part of South Carolina, has not only a stunning location outside of Myrtle Beach, but a growing athletic program as well. With all of their teams competing at a Division I level, CCU has shown that they have serious talent, but the teams are always striving for more. The football team has plans of leaving the Sun Belt Conference and become an FBS member in the 2017 season, meaning they would be eligible for bowl games and play in some of the nation’s biggest venues. This means not only continuing to grow as a team, but also attracting new recruits to strengthen their roster.
With that in mind and looking to improve their stadium branding, Coastal Carolina turned to AMI Graphics to determine the best signage solution to visually enhance the rows of concrete support columns at Brooks Stadium. After discussing the end goal of Coastal Carolina’s signage needs and taking the different variables of the desired location, it was determined that vinyl pole wraps would be the best solution to give these dull concrete columns a facelift while also adding to their stadium’s branding.
Vinyl pole wraps are a simple, yet impactful option as they are created by wrapping a vinyl banner tightly around the pole or column and securing the ends with hook and loop. Traditional pole wraps are typically printed on an adhesive material that adheres directly to the pole which means that they are up until they are permanently removed. On the other hand, vinyl pole wraps can be easily removed and reinstalled making them a great temporary signage solution for special events, rotating sponsors, and more. Vinyl pole wraps are also a budget-friendly option.
Coastal Carolina chose to use their pole wraps as a student-athlete recognition display showing off player accomplishments to players, fans, and prospective recruits alike. The choice to use vinyl pole wraps means that they can easily add sponsor logos, additional player and team accomplishments, or promote upcoming games or events all while giving a fresh, new look to a previously drab part of the stadium.
In the end, AMI was able to deliver a cost-effective stadium signage solution to Coastal Carolina helping them to improve their stadium branding, as well as show off their many achievements.
“The process leading up to delivery was very easy and smooth. Also the expected delivery time was spot on. The process of uploading the images to the AMI website was very easy to use and the staff was very accommodating to any of the changes we had. The wraps are exactly what we wanted and AMI delivered perfectly. We look forward to continue working in the future with AMI.” - Frank Starace, Facilities and Operations Assistant, Coastal Carolina University
Advertising is an important part of any company’s marketing strategy, and what better way to enhance that strategy with fleet graphics. Whether you have one company vehicle, a full fleet with multiple vehicle styles, or anything in between, each vehicle can have thousands of impressions every day. Fleet graphics are the perfect way to turn a functional business necessity into a cost-effective promotional tool to increase your brand awareness.
Just as fleets can come in many sizes and shapes, fleet graphics can be customized to meet these needs. The typical options for fleet graphics are vinyl lettering, vehicle graphics, and vehicle wraps. The option used depends on a variety of factors ranging from style of vehicle, desired design elements, and budget.
Vinyl lettering is lettering cut out of pre-colored or digitally printed adhesive vinyl into any arrangement of text that you desire. Vinyl lettering is a great option for displaying your company name, contact information, and services.
Vehicle graphics are a great option if you’re looking for more complex design elements on various areas, such as windows and doors, but aren’t looking to do full coverage vehicle wraps.
Vehicle wraps are digitally printed to any design needed and can be used as full wraps or partial wraps depending on the design elements and budget. Vehicle wraps can transform the appearance of a vehicle from an SUV into a submarine or display stunning images on a large scale for a truly eye-catching display of mobile advertising.
