Graphics Transform a Garage where it all Started

Spectra Imaging Garage Graphics

Spectra Imaging, Louisville, Ky., is a true American success story. Owners Brian and Leslie Rogers started the powerhouse print shop in their garage about seven years ago.

What once housed print production as the couple beat the pavement to sell their services is now home to something garages were originally intended to house… a vehicle. In this case, it’s a fine driving machine manufactured by Bavarian Motor Works.

Garage Graphics by Spectra ImagingThe Rogers have moved their business from the garage to a large print production facility in Louisville. The growing and dynamic company has realized the fruits of their hard labor in the early years and has become a fixture in the Louisville area.

The garage, meanwhile, has been transformed into something completely different with the use of a variety of inkjet media from LexJet.

Rogers went all out, wrapping the walls in faux brick with Photo Tex from LexJet, printing BMW photos on LexJet 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper, laminated with D&K 6 Mil UV Textured Vinyl PSA and applied to 1″ Gator Board with LexJet GraphicMount White Adhesive. There are 1″ cleats on the back of the panels that attach to the wall.

Floor Graphic by Spectra ImagingThe floor graphic was printed on LexJet Simple Adhesive Vinyl SUV – Gloss (5 Mil) and laminated with the D&K Textured material. Rogers says he went with a more permanent vinyl, rather than a more temporary floor graphic material that can be easily removed, since he expects it to be there for years to come.

The brick graphics essentially frame garage, complementing and contrasting for a blend that is rugged, classic and classy.

Rogers created one large image, cropped each panel at about 50 inches wide, printed them individually and applied them in order so they lined up. Rogers says it took about three hours to apply the wall graphics, with some more to come soon. Check back here for updated photos in the next week or so…
