Panther Graphics is looking to spice up the holiday season by giving away six free vinyl vehicle wraps through a promotion on the company’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/panthergraphics). Panther Graphics is the sister company of IndyCar Series race team Panther Racing, whose partner Oracal USA will be donating all the vinyl used on the six vehicles that are selected as winners in this promotion.
Panther Graphics is asking entrants to post to its Facebook page the specific vehicle they would like wrapped, along with any compelling design ideas or a story behind the vehicle to be considered in the competition. Interested parties will be able to post their suggestions throughout the month of December, and Panther Graphics will announce its selections on January 4th.
“We thought the holiday season was a great time for Panther Graphics to offer some free wraps to our Facebook followers,” Panther Graphics President Nic Baumann said. “We like to challenge ourselves here both in terms of the types of vehicles we wrap and the complexity of the designs we are able to create. This is all made possible by our friends at Oracal donating the vinyl and we’re excited to see what types of unique vehicles and design ideas our fans have on Facebook.”
The team has already selected three winners from Facebook fans who posted wrap suggestions earlier in the year: a BMW M3 from OEM Motorworks, a food trailer that serves Soldiers at Indiana’s Camp Atterbury and a pulling tractor from the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling league.
Panther Graphics staff will select winners of the promotion based upon the following criteria: Overall originality of either the vehicle itself or the accompanying design idea, vehicles that are rare or otherwise difficult to obtain, compelling or emotional story associated with vehicle and/or anything that has a verifiable charitable purpose or component to its use. Winners selected in this promotion are responsible for transporting their vehicle to Panther Graphics’ headquarters in Indianapolis for the wrap, and all designs must be mutually agreed-upon with our staff members.
“We are excited to participate in this promotion, in large part, because of the extraordinary talents of Panther Graphics. ORACAL’s innovative wrapping films are used on Panther Racing’s vehicles‚ pit equipment and transporters but now Panther Graphics brings their diverse wrapping experience to the masses,” said Lisa Humrich, marketing manager of ORACAL USA.
The company’s installers and graphic designers are the same professionals who have designed artwork and installed vinyl onPanther Racing’s IndyCar since 2009. Panther Graphics has wrapped vehicles that have appeared in the Olympic Swim Trials, Gumball Rally 3000, Fireball Run, the 59th Hoosier Hundred, SEMA, and the Indianapolis 500. In the same short span of time the organization has also served clients from the US Olympic Bobsled team, Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Truck Series, Oracal, INDYCAR, US Chamber of Commerce, Lids, Sharp Copiers, the National Guard and many others.
