Mactac Distributor Products Donates Vinyl to Portraits of HopeJune 12th, 2013 | Category: Industry News
Stow, Ohio-based Mactac® Distributor Products has partnered with nonprofit organization Portraits of Hope to help motivate hospitalized and disadvantaged children through public art works. The duo plans to wrap 31 emergency service vehicles in Aspen, Colo., with more than 35 rolls of Imagin® JT5529BFD bubble-free adhesive vinyl, donated by Mactac.
Certified installers recently began wrapping fire trucks, ambulances and mountain rescue vehicles in addition to other emergency service vehicles. The entire installation process is estimated to take about 14 days to complete and are expected to be unveiled at the Aspen Fourth of July community events.
“Our partnership with Portraits of Hope and the opportunity to contribute to the mission of providing children with hope never ceases to be a rewarding experience for everyone here at Mactac,” says Jennifer Bowman, corporate marketing, Mactac. “We are honored to donate our pressure-sensitive material to this year’s project and work with professionals from the graphics community to help this organization continue to impact the lives of sick and disadvantaged children.”
Throughout the months of April and May, more than 2,000 seriously ill, physically disabled and disadvantaged children from the Braille Institute, Denver hospitals, Shriners Hospitals for Children, inner-city schools and youth groups painted the artwork on the adhesive vinyl panels for the project. The vinyl was printed by Imagic in Burbank, Calif., with the outline of flowers and geometric shapes, which are the symbols of Portraits of Hope. A majority of the vehicles will remain wrapped for four to five months for display throughout the city, and the ambulances will remain wrapped through January for the Winter X Games 2014.
