Digitally Printed Globe Banners for ESRI
Fabric: Direct Print onto Polyester, FR White 110″ Blackout Lining
The client was ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute). ESRI creates geographic information systems (GIS) to help companies and organizations develop responsible solutions to geo-global problems.
A set of 8 digitally-printed double-sided circle banners. Sixteen circles, each 13 feet in diameter, were direct-printed onto 16 foot wide fabric. The circles were then sewn back to back, to create 8 banners. An interlining of White Blackout Lining ensures that the circles can be sewn back-to-back without the image showing through to the other side. The gorgeous artwork was provided by ESRI.
The vibrant colors of the globe glow and appear three dimensional in contrast to the white of the massive structure. This was truly a unique project for Sew What? and one we are really proud of, as it shows the versatility of digitally printing with a grand format printer onto fabric. Digitally printing is not just for scenic backdrops!
