WithinUs popup project gives trainees chance to try Drytac
Still Creek Press, a provider of commercial and wide-format printing, has completed an extremely short-term project in Vancouver using Drytac SpotOn—a product so easy to apply that the business used the time-sensitive project as an opportunity to train a new employee.
In early June, Still Creek Press worked with natural health retailer WithinUs to create and install wall, window, and floor graphics for a charitable popup to celebrate WithinUs’ five years in business. For this one-day event, key features of Drytac SpotOn such as the decorative and eye-catching graphics, had to be easy to both apply and remove.
SpotOn, supplied to Still Creek Press by ND Graphics Vancouver, is a 100µ (4 mil) high-quality, ink receptive printable vinyl compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, latex, and UV inkjet printing technology. Ideal for short-term indoor graphics applications such as wall decals, it can be applied with no special tools, not even a squeegee, making it suitable for use by non-professionals and trainees.
“We chose Drytac SpotOn for a number of reasons,” says Bruce Lee, wide format manager at Still Creek Press. “It was super-easy to apply and it could be easily removed by anyone. In fact, I used the event as on-site training for one of my staff members to teach her the ins and outs of an install. We had her apply some of the decals which she did with ease.”
For the floor decals, Lee and staff did not need an overlaminate because of the built-in anti-slip surface. Like the wall version, it is easy to apply.
The WithinUs popup was in support of Covenant House, which works to support young homeless people in Vancouver.
Commenting on Instagram, WithinUs says, “The wall, window and floor graphics looked incredible. It was a very successful event.”
Still Creek Press uses Drytac SpotOn for a range of projects. “After doing numerous tests with this product and other removable vinyls, we settled on Drytac SpotOn,” says Lee. “Time and time again, it outperformed other vinyls and just the feedback from our clients was enough for us. It is, hands down, one of the best removable short-term vinyls out there.”
