Global Imaging has been chosen to distribute Asphalt Art, a unique non-slip floor and street graphics film for UV and Latex printers.
Asphalt Art, a 2011 SGIA Product of the Year winner, is a printable and flexible commercial grade, slip-resistant white foil based media that has been designed to meet OSHA standards for general purpose, anti-slip surface applications and is certified by the National Floor Safety Institute. In addition to being visually impactful, its single piece construction does not require a non-slip overlaminate. This unique media transforms ordinary ground and surface materials such as asphalt, concrete and untreated stone into stunning canvases, adjusting to uneven surfaces and withstanding heavy foot and vehicle traffic. Asphalt Art is the perfect compliment to traditional large format graphics for outdoor stadiums, events, concerts, street-signage and retail graphics.
"The patented aluminum substrate technology is extremely durable and can take up to one year of foot and car traffic," says Chris Cudzilo, director of supplies for Global Imaging. "It's easy to apply and easy to remove with no messy adhesives or heat application. Our customers have been extremely happy with their ability to place high impact graphics in unique and demanding places."
Owner Tom Hopkins, Alphagraphics Hillsborough, New Jersey was very impressed with the ease of use and impact of one Asphalt Art installation. "We did a major hospital event with Olympic athletes to promote Healthy Living. Each athlete signed autographs in front of 4x7-foot images that were used to define their location. Asphalt Art was very easy to apply and looked awesome. We received many, many great comments and everyone wanted to peel it up and take it with them. It really made the event special."
Marcel Medved, business development director for Asphalt Art USA, said they chose Global Imaging to sell the product because of its customer base and focus on media. "We were looking for a partner that could put Asphalt Art in front of a large installed UV curable and Latex printer base. Global's specialized focus on providing unique solutions has not disappointed. Early traction with this new product has been phenomenal, " he said.
