77′ Corvette Wrap

Is there a cooler car than a 77′ Corvette?  Maybe but this one was awesome. What a fun project it was to wrap this for John. Nanette did a great job on the design and Rad wrapped it with precision! Great job everyone.

As always we use Avery SuperCast EZ RS vinyl for our wraps with DOL 1360 Overlam. every surface is curved so it’s a bit of a challenge – but Rad’s got it down to a science.

Callahan’s Hot Dogs – Food Truck Wrap

If you’re from NJ there’s a good chance you have great memories of Callahan’s Hot Dogs.  Callahan’s Hot Dogs has been a staple in NJ since 1950.  Unfortunately they closed their doors about seven years ago.But the grandson of founder Leonard “Artie” Castranni, had big plans for the beloved hot dog business.  Daniel DeMiglio, being a smart entrepreneur decided to resurrect the brand…and take it mobile with a food truck.

Daniel contacted KDF for the branding and design on the food truck – and we were pumped! We had a short time to get it designed, printed and installed for the big debut.  we got it in right under the wire. Nanette jumped right on the design and nailed it – Rad got the vinyl done just in time.

We were proud to work with such an iconic “NJ” brand and extremely happy that Daniel has brought back Callahan’s! If you see this truck YOU MUST STOP FOR A HOT DOG!

Best of luck – Daniel.  Welcome Back Callahans – you’ve been missed!

Spring Project for Bohemian Bloom

Sometimes KDF is  just a small part of a project. We could be creating a structure, a graphic or a number of other elements for our clients designs. No matter what is we love to see what our clients final piece!

In this case we created some foam letters for Tana Leigh Gerber at Bohemian Bloom who creates amazing paper flora. Check out her work.

We used 1/2″ Gator Foam cut on our MultiCAM 3000. We cut tabs into the logo and slotted a base for easy setup.photo6

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Sign

Another super fun job! The Amazing Spider-Man 2 sign.

This sign will hang at the Disney Store in Times Square. We cut the larger letters out of 1.5″ Precision Board HDU and the smaller letters from 3/4″ PVC.  We then cut the face of the letters from 1/4″ PVC.

Brian then painted the red part of the letters with Metallic Red paint then airbrushed the gradation onto the face – WOW I love it.

Rad wrapped a piece of 2″ Gator Board with Avery Car Wrap vinyl – front and back. Mark and Greg took it from there to complete the assembly and install the threaded rod hangers. Great job everyone. Can’t wait to see this movie! – Steve
