“The attention to detail by the Pictura Graphics team is why we keep coming back.” Robin Kleinert Graphics Project Manager CenterPoint Exhibits

CENTERPOINT

solutions for ECOLAB CHALLENGE When the team at Ecolab approached CenterPoint for exhibit solutions, their vision was to not only highlight their Vehicle Care brands in their display messages, but to uphold to their company’s sustainability initiatives well. Sustainability is inherent in Ecolab products and services, so their exhibit needed to also reflect this. SOLUTION As a valued strategic partner to CenterPoint, Pictura Graphics helped identify the best graphic materials for the project. Turning to Pictura’s ecoIMAGES™ product line of eco-friendly graphic alternatives (eco fabrics, textiles, boards and vinyls), Pictura made the best recommendations for the project specifications. Four 8’ x 15’ double-sided banners were created using direct print (UV) to ecoBANNER material, with pole pockets sewn in to finish to specification. Counter wraps at 96” x 42” each, also utilized UV printing to adhesive material, allowing for consistency in image and color matching across multiple media. RESULTS By providing integrated sourcing, conceptualization, layout and design services, Pictura delivered the value-added customer experience CenterPoint and Ecolab envisioned. With premium customer service, creative design, cutting-edge technologies, custom finishing and unique product fulfillment, Pictura delivers innovative graphic solutions and extraordinary results.

the country.
