We received an inquiry from Aquinas College in September 2016. They were in need of bus graphics for an annual trip scheduled for January 2017. With the artwork provided by Aquinas College, and Gray Line of Tennessee providing the chartered Prevost bus, our job was to create the print files, fabricate the decals, and install the graphics before the bus rolled out on January 25.
For over 50 years, Aquinas College has offered educational opportunities to students in liberal arts, teaching, nursing and business. Owned and operated by the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation, Aquinas College is a private, Roman Catholic college with a fascinating history that began in 1860. The beautiful campus is located on 83-acres right here in Nashville TN.
A group of students, representing the #MarchforLife group, traveled to and from Washington DC in the bus for the event held each January since 1974. Since the bus was rented, and the trip took only 72 hours, our graphics were only on the bus for a short period of time.
Once we received the artwork from Aquinas College, we created print files at the sizes needed for both of the sides and the back of the bus. We digitally printed the graphics on our HP Latex 360 64" Wide Format High Production Printer. Because the bus was being supplied by Gray Line, we installed the graphics at their facility in Nashville the morning before the group left.
The temporary graphics along both sides of the bus are 37' x 2'. WOW! On the back, the decal is still an impressive size at 9' 3" x 2' 8".
This photo gives a close-up of the Aquinas College logo. We love how the graphic sits perfectly above the 'Nashville, Tennessee' already on the bus.
What others saw as they traveled behind the bus on the way to and from Washington DC.
We can tell from the Aquinas College Facebook page that the group had a wonderful time on their trip. Once the bus came back to Nashville, the kind folks at Gray Line of Tennessee removed the graphics and prepared the bus for another trip.
