When you think of the most famous signs in the country, the Hollywood sign or the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign may come to mind. The main characteristic that these signs and any marker that’s somewhat memorable have in common is they’re “YUGE” (as certain presidential candidates say).
So, when you have a box truck, you have the opportunity to create a large sign that people will remember. Clark County Food Bank realized this and without hesitation contacted the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions for delivery box truck graphics in Vancouver, WA. The folks at the food bank know the mighty sign makers well – they’re one of our favorite serial customers! We’ve done several vehicle graphics projects, plus check out this cool commercial freezer door graphics project we did for them!
Deposits and Withdrawals at the Clark County Food Bank
The Clark County Food Bank, or CCFB as the cool kids call them, is situated on Northeast 47th Avenue in Vancouver. On a daily basis, the food bank picks up unsold food from local grocery stores, restaurants and other community minded places. This food is then distributed to partner agencies. They in turn provide food boxes to individuals and families they’ve identified as being in need. This is a great win-win-win setup with grocery stores unloading their unwanted inventory, hungry people getting food, and there’s less waste! Lest you think this is small potatoes – CCFB distributes six million pounds of food and five million meals a year!
When a group that does such valuable work for our community came to us for delivery box truck graphics for Vancouver, WA, we couldn’t wait to create some delicious designs. This wasn’t our first time working with CCFB. In the past, we’d created vehicle graphics for their other vehicles and installed a cool giant mural on the sliding door of their commercial freezer in their food warehouse. For this project, they needed graphics for a brand new box truck. We knew just what to do!
We Gave CCFB the SGS Treatment
When we first met with CCFB for this project, we got to check out their new ride. The truck was purchased thanks to a grant from Walmart. They wanted the new truck to match the branding found on their other vehicles. Plus, they wanted to use special graphics to show their appreciation to Walmart for their financial commitment and to share Walmart’s dedication to fighting hunger in America. We created some art proofs for them to choose from. Once they were happy, we got down to work.
We printed the full-color graphics for both sides and the back of the new box truck on Oracal 3165A print vinyl using our large format digital printer. We also added Oracal 210 laminate to make sure the graphics would look their best for up to five years.
We then worked out a good time for the installation process. They ended up dropping off the truck at the end of the day on Thursday, and by Friday afternoon, they were able to pick up the truck with all the graphics installed and looking great. CCFB was completely happy with the work we did!
