Century Junior High School is located in Orland Park, a southwest suburb of Chicago. Over the last year we have worked on multiple projects with Century, including a large mural covering stage doors in their gymnasium. Century loved how their first mural turned out, so they reached out to the School Spirit Lab for help designing another one. This time they wanted to cover up the other side of the stage in the cafeteria. Make sure you check out the before and after pictures!
Stage door before the mural installation
Above you will see how the stage looked before our installation team completed the new mural. After the on-site consultation, our design team got to work brainstorming ideas. They went through about a week of revisions when they had come up with a design that Century loved! We printed 438 square feet of Envision 480 material on our HP Latex 360 Printer using a 12 pass HP Certified Profile. We used Envision 480 because it has great conformability for a wide range of long term applications, such as indoor and outdoor signs, vehicle graphics, and textured walls.
The overall size of the mural was 544”x116”. Since there were 13 doors on the stage, and Century still wanted them to be functional, we paneled the 544” into 13 panels to be installed as 13 separate pieces. Installing each panel separately allows the door to open and close with ease. The installation of the stage mural took 5 hours with 3 men on the job.
Stage murals allow you to turn that eyesore in your gym or cafeteria into a vibrant, eye-catching space! Even with these new graphics, the stage doors can still function. They are able to open and close without causing any damage. This mural allowed Century to add school spirit by covering up a blank wall and creating a space the students and faculty can enjoy. As you can see below, large murals make great back drops for school assemblies, school and sporting events, gatherings, and photos opportunities!

Last year we filled the hallways with brick graphics, an eye-catching acrylic standoff sign of their logo, and a gym mural! View the gallery above and below.
