This week’s featured project comes to us from the Steel City, where Jay Lang and the crew at Pittsburgh’s 3 Rivers Sign LLC created this wrap on a Peterbilt tri-axle tow truck.

“The project started off with an original airbrush painting, which took about 26 hours and was then scanned at 1200 dpi and printed out on a Seiko Color Painter W64S, a solvent-based printer using GX inks,” Lang told Sign & Digital Graphics back in 2015, when he sent these photos in. “We printed the graphic on 3M ControlTac premium wrap material and 3M premium laminate. The graphics were installed at six hour intervals with two installers. It took 24 actual hours per person. The bed of the truck was Oracal high-performance 751 series tomato red vinyl.”

The wrap was designed and fabricated by Lang and Chuck Potetz
