(Video) The Power Ball XX: Carousal – Giant Archway Entrance – The Power Plant

Making a dramatic entrance

Every now and then a print production project comes along that really captures our imagination. This was one such project:

Entrance Archways are an imaginative way to take an event to the next level.
The Powerball is an event like no other, so it required something extra-special.
– Something larger than life.

Proprint was asked to help on this project for 2 reasons;
The first –  Their 25+ year reputation for large-format print production and swift turn around.
The second – Their love and support of the Arts.

Proprint was founded on creative expression. They don’t just like art. They love it!

The Nintendo Labo contains interesting features only seen thus far within Point of Sale development studios as well as other retail focused developers – and we here at pop-online.com love it! It is fantastic to see the power of dieline expanding and now finding its way into the games of our kids.

What better way to do this than by making it out of the very materials we specialize in (printed substrates). We treated our own brand like a case study. We wanted to show a clear path from friendly introduction to project discussion.

Our positioning for this show is clear. We offer:
