EMBRACE YOUR SPACE
Lurvey Home & Garden is a garden-supply specialist store located in Des Plaines, Illinois. They have 6 other facilities, 5 located in Illinois and 1 in Wisconsin. Lurvey is dedicated to helping people improve their outdoor living spaces by providing quality landscape products and exceptional customer service.
In the past we have worked with Lurvey to print and install directional and seasonal banners at their Des Plaines location. This summer they reached out to us with a new idea. They wanted help creating a large hanging structure that could display directional signage to be seen throughout their large facility. They were looking for 4 directional signs to be printed on long-lasting, durable material. They also wanted to be able to change the designs with ease, without having to take the entire hanging structure down.

THE SOLUTION: TURNING VISION INTO REALITY
Our team started brainstorming different ideas to help bring their vision to life. We came up with the idea of a square magnetic metal structure to be hung from the ceiling. This sign was just what they had in mind! It was large enough to be seen from all around the yard, durable enough to withstand the outside weather, and with the magnetic element, they could easily swap out the designs as needed.

A total of 96 square feet of adhesive vinyl, 48 square feet of magnet and 48 square feet of magnetic metal was used on this structure. We used a matte over-laminate on all four prints to protect them. Everything for this job was produced on our HP Latex wide format printer. The adhesive prints were then mounted to four sheets of 2’ x 6’ magnetic metal, and four 2’ x 6’ magnets. The four designs that Lurvey wanted up year-round were mounted to the magnetic metal substrates. The four designs that they wanted to be able to change out were mounted on sheets of magnet. Production of this project lasted about one week and the installation of the hanging structure took four hours with three men on the job. Check out the finished product!
