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.
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
