The historic Colorado mountain mining town in which Grizzly Creek Gallery is located, Georgetown, recently needed banners for a booth the town was setting up at the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver to promote tourism.
The answer was the combination of outstanding photography, design and print services that Haines offers. In this case Haines created two 36″ x 84″ banners and one 39 1/4″ x 83″ banner.
Haines used a larger photo for the background and then laid out smaller photos on top of the background, created in Photoshop. All the photos but one are from Haines’ portfolio of local Georgetown color.
The smaller photos were completed with drop shadows and bevels to give the banners a three-dimensional quality and bring more attention to the message: that Georgetown is a great place to visit for a variety of reasons.
The banners were printed on LexJet 5.5 Mil Matte Opaque Display Film with an Epson Stylus Pro 9900 inkjet printer. Haines used two LexJet Giant Mosquito Retractable Banner Stands (the 36″ x 84″ banners) and a LexJet Orient Retractable Banner Stand.
“The colors turned out great on the Display Film. Each banner and stand comes with its own carrying case and you can re-use them and swap out banners very easily, so the entire package creates a really nice and easy-to-use display for my clients,” says Haines.
