Project: Dress up the practice gym to showcase current players and entice new recruits
Academy Reprographics was asked for its input for a new facility at the University of New Mexico (UMN). UNM recently opened a new basketball practice facility adjacent to the “Pit” Arena. The head coach of the men’s basketball team wanted to dress up the practice gym to showcase current players and entice new recruits.
After many discussions and pouring through thousand of player photos, Academy Reprographics created 4x8-foot banners of each player, including the women. These banners were then printed on scrim vinyl and hung with Velcro over sound-absorbing panels 40 feet high.
"They turned out fantastic and we have been providing more services to the team since," said Kevin O'Hea, owner, Academy Reprographics. "Not only was this a fun and profitable job, it was a huge education for us and gave us the opportunity to expand or knowledge and stable of products."
