Wraps recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October have become popular with local police departments. Avery Dennison was proud to collaborate with graphics and wrap professionals from California to Alabama to raise awareness in 2017.
Michael Hufana, Original Mobile Graphics in California, created a custom breast cancer awareness design featuring a pink and black color scheme, along with the “Think Pink” slogan incorporated on the hood, in a digitally printed vehicle wrap. MPI 1105 provided vibrant colors and superior digital print clarity for the wrap on the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s cruiser. Hufana donated the printing and installation of the wrap. He says, “I chose Avery Dennison films because they print beautifully and install easily.”
“I support our local first responders and also the breast cancer awareness movement. A personal friend passed away from cancer recently and also my high school teacher passed away from breast cancer, I wouldn’t have graduated high school without her help,” adds Hufana. “So, I try to support any cancer movements that I can.” This is the second year that Hufana has worked with sheriff’s office on a breast cancer awareness car wrap.
The Dothan Police Department is participating in Real Men Wear Pink, an initiative in which community leaders raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events.
As part of its participation in the campaign, the Dothan, Alabama police department now has a fully wrapped police cruiser. The wrap was designed and installed by Shift Designs with Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping™ Film Satin Bubblegum Pink and digitally printed Diamond White for the police logos and overlays. The car number is dedicated to Katherine Holer, the owners of Shift Designs mom’s friend, who is a breast cancer survivor.
“We chose Avery Dennison films because of the wide selection of color and finish choices. Supreme Wrapping Films are also easy to install,” says Chris Lee, graphics designer at Shift Designs. “We really wanted a dazzle factor for the project and the Diamond White was just what we needed.”
“The community has been good to us since we started our business in 2010 and we wanted to give back,” adds Lee. “A chance lunch meeting with a friend led to this project. We mentioned that we wanted to do something for breast cancer awareness and he put us in contact with Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish. Everyone involved made the process to bring this project to life easy. They gave us full creative control, trusted us to bring the idea to reality and as a result we brought attention to the fight against breast cancer.”
