S.K. Sign & Banner print and install a huge 21-foot faux brick and building interior wall graphic in just 3 days

November 14, 2019

A staple of Louisville, the KFC YUM! Center is a multi-purpose sports and events venue known to draw large crowds of people – more than 23,000 – for everything from college basketball games to heavy metal concerts. But, crowds of people aren’t the only “large” things to make the Center unique. Recently, Center representatives approached S.K. Sign & Banner with an urgent request to print and install a very large, 21-foot tall wall graphic – in just three days.

With a reputation of “not just another sign company,” the team at S.K. Sign & Banner knew they had the experience and expertise to meet the stringent demands and get the job done in the timeframe allotted. Immediately, S.K. Sign & Banner decided Mactac® IMAGin® ROODLE™ (RO628) printable media – a media they use all the time due to its print-to-the-edge capability – would be the best solution for creating a faux brick wall and historic Falls City building wall graphic. They confirmed their material choice with partner Athens Paper. Without hesitation, Athens Paper Company representative Barry Esslinger agreed ROODLE™ was the way to go.

S.K. Sign & Banner began printing on a Wednesday, using an HP Latex 560 printer. The graphic included 11 17-foot panels, each 50-inches wide. Panels were printed to the edge of the material with a 1-inch overlap. On Thursday, they were installed onto the smooth interior wall, with the lowest panels being applied 4-feet above the ground. By Friday, the project was complete.

With ROODLE, our installers didn’t even have to tape up the product – it was super easy to install. As long as you rip the file correctly, the rest is easy,” says Stefan Kopf of S.K. Sign & Banner. “We love Mactac products and so does Athens Paper – Mactac is our go-to. Once you find a product that works, why change? ROODLE was made for this type of application.”

ROODLE (RO628) is a 6.0-mil matte white, semi-rigid calendared PVC film designed for UV

screen, solvent-based inkjet and offset printing. It features a 90# SuperFlat™ polyester-coated Kraft liner and a removable adhesive that is perfect for smooth or tiled indoor wall murals or posters, indoor and outdoor signage, bumper stickers and other removable graphics meant to be printed flush to the edge.
