Fabricating Oversized over 10ft Letters and Banners for Strike Out Slavery
We were honored to fabricate large scale, oversize letters, logo and banners for Major League Baseball games, fighting against modern slavery and human trafficking - "STRIKE OUT SLAVERY".
We started out by hot wire cutting three large "K" letters at over 10ft tall from 2lbs EPS foam. We created the letters in 2 sections, glued them, patched them with dry wall mud, then sanded and smoothed it to eliminate the gluing sim.
We then hard coated the oversize letters with Polyurea hard coat and painted them orange
For the next phase we printed the logo of the "Strike Out Slavery" on adhesive vinyl using our wide format Mutoh printer. Since the logo was wider than the letter, we glued the vinyl logo onto Sintra which we glued onto the "K" letters and screwed them on to stay in place.
We had to build custom large crates with wheels to hold the large letters and protect them in transportation.
Next we fabricated the banner with the same process - We cut the banner shape out of 2lbs EPS foam on our hot wire foam cutter, applied Polyurea hard coat, printed the design on adhesive vinyl, glued it on the foam then glued the vinyl logo on top. We screwed metal rods in the back on the 2 sides so the banner can be attached to a high metal structure.
Here is the banner hanging up high and the Large "K" at the entrance to the football stadium
