Purdue University Silo Wrap at Jackson Farms

Indianapolis Vehicle Wrap Company Creates a Wrap to Honor Purdue’s Rick Mount

Shadow Graphix was given the opportunity to wrap a silo, honoring Purdue’s Rick Mount, at Jackson Farms in Lebanon Indiana. Rick Mount is one of the greatest basketball players to come from Indiana. On February 14, 1966 he was the first high school athlete to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Magazine. Mount also received the Indiana “Mr. Basketball” Award and was named “USA Basketball Yearbook Player of the Year” during his senior year of high school. After graduating high school Rick Mount attended Purdue University in West Lafayette Indiana where he continued his basketball career. Throughout his college career he was named first and second team All-American and received Big Ten Player of the year honors. Throughout his career at Purdue University he received All-American honors two additional times. Mount left Purdue as the school’s all-time leading scorer with 2,323 points and broke numerous school records. Rick currently still lives in his hometown of Lebanon, Indiana where he now runs “shoot camps”.

Silos hold a great potential as profitable space for advertising by placing wraps on them.  Wraps in general are the most cost effective brand messaging you can do for your business, imagine your companies branding on the side of a massive silo.  The size alone grabs your attention immediately, now incorporate a powerful/attractive marketing campaign and you have an absolute clear advantage on your competition.

What went into making this wrap project happen?

When Jackson Farms and Purdue University decided to team up with Shadow Graphix for this project, our team of designers quickly got to work on creating a design for this oversized project. They wanted to create something eye-catching and also honor the great basketball player, Rick Mount.

Once a design was created and completed, a proof was sent over to the customers for approval. After the customer approved the created artwork, the wrap project moved to the next phase, which is to our print department. This wrap was then printed on our state of the art printers. Once printed, the vinyl image was laminated to help it withstand the harsh elements that Indiana consumers face, such as wind, dirt, and rain of the outdoors. The next step in the process to prepare the vinyl graphic image for install was to take the printed product into our production department and cut it down. Then from there the printed wrap was installed onto a piece of max metal sign. The max metal sign is then bolted on to the side of the silo. After the printing and production was completed it was time to install the product onto the grain silo.

A few of the installers from Shadow Graphix made the trip from Indianapolis up to Lafayette to place the finished product onto the silo at Jackson Farms. This large design is now viewable from Interstate 65 in Lafayette, Indiana. If you head down from Indianapolis, please check it out!
