The Mandy Stoll Tennis Center at Stetson University in Deland, FL, recently took advantage of new printing and branding technology to refurbish and enhance their varsity tennis facility. Working on a deadline, facility management wanted to unveil new logos as part of an updated branding campaign at their upcoming conference tournament.
Jake Gibson, Assistant Athletic Director for Facilities & Operations, called on Ball Fabrics, Inc. for the custom windscreen work that required precision measuring, printing, and high quality graphics work. Manufacturing superior windscreen and netting for over 35 years, Ball Fabrics also offers world class outdoor printing using the industry’s most advanced large scale printers and technology designed to increase the resilience and longevity of windscreen graphics.
The job required new windscreen to replace a previous installation that had been improperly measured leaving the courts with a choppy, unfinished look and logos that were not correctly centered. New screens were carefully measured by Ball Fabrics’ experienced professionals to ensure logos ended up perfectly centered behind each court for symmetry and a professional finished look. They were printed using long lasting outdoor inks and then enhanced with Ball Fabrics’ ToughCoat™, a UV coating that adds an additional three year life expectancy to outdoor graphics.
The full size VCP windscreen was custom fabricated to exact measurements and the new logos were printed directly onto the windscreen. Then ToughCoat™ was applied to the printed windscreen for an additional layer of UV protection designed to double the longevity of outdoor inks.
This process was developed by Ball Fabrics specifically for enhancing the life expectancy of outdoor graphics several years beyond what standard printers can offer.
“The screens look great,” reported Gibson. “And we had great feedback on them for the conference tournament. I really appreciate Ball Fabrics for getting them done on time.
