Please describe the project specifications

Vertical signage panels on the outside of the restaurant building with SGS printed graphics. The graphic material is thermal w/8520 and the base material is 46” Alpine Sunbrella. The top is 55’ 3” wide and the bottom is 52’ 11” wide, 13’ deep with a 3’ projection. The graphic type “Be Unique and Eat Drink” printed to match Ginko Green Sunbrella.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

Maggie McFly’s is a unique eatery that recently opened in January 2017 at Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach. There are 4 locations in Connecticut. The restaurant owner wanted large signage with their logo “Maggie McFly’s” graphic and their taglines, “Be Unique” and “Eat Drink”.

What is unique or complex about the project?

It was critical to the client that we color match the graphics to Ginko Green Sunbrella fabric on the signage with the heat transfer (SGS) Graphic Process of “Be Unique and Eat Drink”. The logo of Maggie McFly’s is unique, as the company founder wanted a woman’s name and was inspired to create an aviator persona based on a biplane reproduction he found in his travels which was hung from the ceiling in his first Maggie’s located in Middlebury in 1993.

What were the results of the project?

The owner was very pleased with the quality of the graphics and was impressed at how well the color of the verbiage was matched to Ginko Green Sunbrella Fabric.
