PVL UK are delighted to announce that we are the 2016 winners of ‘Wrap of the Year’ at the prestigious, British Sign Awards.
We beat off a selection of fantastic competition with our unusual 3D design of one of our projects; designing and wrapping the Gatwick Diamond Business Pool car. Sponsored by Gatwick Airport, the GDB car is frequently spotted out and about around the Sussex area and even has its own Twitter account. (@thegdbcar)
Presented by Bill Turnbull, the British Sign Awards said “PVL(UK) very cleverly included a 3D effect – by mounting PVC discs to the body and roof and then wrapping over the top. People now want to touch the car to see how the 3D effect was achieved – making it possibly the first ever interactive wrap.”
After agreeing a suitable, innovative and eye-catching design, the car had 3D blocks carefully applied to car first, to resemble popular plastic building blocks, and was then wrapped in digitally printed 3M IJ180 and 3M 1080 gloss white vinyl with cut vinyl lettering applied on top. We used Contravision one-way window film on the passenger windows.
