In The Spotlight in Front of 87,000 Fans
By Blair Cariss, Lifetime Bombers Fan
Long time readers will know my love of Aussie rules football. So you can imagine how chuffed I was when Essendon Football Club asked us to print the match day banner for Anzac Day at the MCG. We have printed sections of banners for them before. But never like this. It would have to be the biggest signage job we’ve ever been tasked with. By far.
It was a pretty proud moment watching it go up before a crowd of 87,000 people.
We’re also lucky to have friends in high places. Match day photo credits go to Michael Willson, Official photographer of the AFL, who snapped the match day beauties.
As you might be able to tell from some of the production photos, the banner was printed in 4 sections. It ended up being 14 metres by 6 metres in total. Printed on UV and waterproof synthetic vinyl.
So if you ever need a 14 metre long banner we’ve got you covered 😉… Obviously many of our clients aren’t ever going to need that! But smaller banners and signage should be a piece of cake after printing this monster.
