Aquaman Project Turned Around at Super-Speed C O U R T E S Y O F D R Y T A C A project promoting the latest superhero blockbuster Aquaman in Canada was turned around in just a few days, using specialist graphics media from Drytac. Global Printing Enterprises created the 250-foot movie poster at super-speed: five days from the site visit, to receiving files and creating color proofs, to the print set-up and printing, to cutting down the panels, labelling and packing, to finally an overnight installation. As the company posted on Instagram: "Ten hours of printing, ten hours of install, ten out [of] ten quality project." Based in Mississauga, Ontario, Global Printing Enterprises is a large-format print branding specialist working with Fortune 500 companies, supplying work for over 200 events per year including music festivals, sports events and brand promotions. The Aquaman project was scheduled through Rooftop Agency on behalf of Warner Bros Canada, with installation services provided by Sekanskin Media. "The biggest challenge was coordinating the project with the tight deadline," explains Carlo Toscano, President, Global Printing Enterprises. "Projects like these should take two weeks to come together. We impressed ourselves in achieving this print and install in just five days." To produce the super-sized Aquaman movie artwork, Global Printing Enterprises used an HP 3000 Latex printer running two rolls of Drytac ReTac Smooth 150 concurrently. SDG
