The Ottawa Fat Cats played their first season in the Intercounty Baseball League in Ontario this summer. They brought their "well loved" coach bus in to k6 Media for a refresh and new graphics. The bus sits outside Ottawa Baseball Stadium - a high traffic, prime location visible from two highways. k6 tried Avery MPI 1005 Supercast Easy Apply RS and DOL 1060 Gloss overlaminate for the first time on the bus wrap and is using the extra conformable film for many of its wrap projects.
The Ottawa Fat Cats, a new, semi-professional baseball team that played in the Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) in Ontario province, is a new corporate client of k6 Media Inc., a full service marketing and sign production company. The Fat Cats played their first season at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium this summer where k6’s work is featured throughout the ballpark.
At the start of the season, the Fat Cats brought their coach bus in to k6 to brand it and give it a refreshed look. “We had the opportunity to transform the coach from an older looking, aged bus to a moving billboard for the team,” said Tristan Hanington, partner of k6 Media Inc. “The bus is often parked at the Ottawa Baseball Stadium and is highly visible from both Vanier Parkway and the Queensway freeway.”
K6’s designers had fun creating the wrap for the bus and embraced the Fat Cats branding. To wrap the bus, the installers chose Avery MPI 1005 Supercast Easy Apply RS and DOL 1060 Gloss overlaminate. “This was our first project with Avery Graphics Supercast films,” added Tristan. “We were impressed with the image quality and how easily the vinyl is applied. We’re using this product for many of our wrap projects now.”
Since 2010 was the Fat Cats first season, the bus served an important role in raising awareness about the team. It was often parked in a high profile location outside the Ottawa Baseball Stadium. In addition, the bus also transported the Fat Cats players to games against the eight other teams in the Intercounty Baseball League in Ontario generating awareness about the Fat Cats.
Avery MPI 1005 Supercast series is a line of extremely conformable cast films and available with Easy Apply RS™, Easy Apply™ and Gloss Opaque LTR technologies – so converters and sign shops can choose the right adhesive for the job. The enhanced conformability of MPI 1005 Supercast series has drawn high praise from installers.
Key features of the Avery MPI 1005 Supercast series include:
- Enhanced conformability allows the films to stay down over complex curves and rivets
- Expanded color gamut capability
- High gloss and smooth face make images and colors pop
- Consistent printability and enhanced image quality
By pairing MPI 1005 Supercast films with Avery Graphics overlaminates, longer-term durability and rigidity are achieved.
