The results are in from LexJet’s first annual Windows, Walls and Doors Contest, and we’re counting them down from third place to first place. To be eligible for the competition, the winning projects had to be printed on either HP or LexJet media with the HP Latex Printer.
First up is our third-place winner, Cottrell Printing in Centennial, Colo. Cottrell will receive $1,000 of in-store credit at LexJet for this beautiful beach scene printed on LexJet Simple Perforated Window Vinyl (60/40).
The window graphics were produced for MI Sports in Denver, highlighting the brands the store carries. The graphics were applied in five panels: three 1′ x 6′ horizontal panels for the logos (top and bottom for the window on the left) and two 50″ x 6′ panels for the beach scenes. Cottrell’s large format manager, Brett Hillbrand, says the larger beach scene panels were applied from top to bottom vertically.
Since the store’s windows face south, the graphics have the added benefit of providing relief from the sun in the summertime.
“From inside, it allows the perfect amount of light to come through. I drove past it the other day and it still looks great. The client was quite happy with the end result and the quality we were able to deliver with the printer and the perforated window vinyl. And they ordered some more large-format work from us, like retractable banner stands,” says Hillbrand.
Stay tuned for the unveiling of the second- and first-place winners in the coming days…
