Ascent Academy is an exciting new school opening in Austin this fall, whose mission is “to equip more young people in Texas with the skills they need to seek meaning in their lives, to become independent learners, and to become globally-minded critical thinkers.” We like the sound of that! Chris was so inspired by their ideas about teaching that he decided to do some
teaching of his own and brought his kiddo Wyatt along
to help install their signage and decals!

Sign Installation in Austin Texas
Learning to make businesses look awesome with Dad.

These signs were all printed on dibond material using our state of the art Mimaki flatbed printer. The UV resistant ink is
designed to last outdoors for years!

Custom Vinyl Wall Decals in Austin Texas
Every wall is different, so when installing decals we like to test a few different vinyls to make sure you’ll get the most durable results. Don’t be surprised if you see tester decals all over the shop walls when you come by to visit!

We co-sponsored and attended Circle Brewery’s 5th Annual .5K back in October, and it was an absolute blast! A 0.5K is only 1,640 feet, so it’s not exactly an endurance race. The micro marathon takes place at the brewery, in their oversized parking lot. All runners are divided into heats, and each runner is given 2 pints of beer with a fill line to hold while running. Any runner who spills below the line during their run is disqualified! Prizes were awarded to the winners of each heat, and our very own Austin a.k.a. Noodle won a ribbon! The event also benefited our long time partners, American Heart Association, and raised awareness about heart health. We supplied the Step & Repeat Backdrop and Finish Line Banner for the event. It was an awesome time, and we can’t wait to do it again next October! Check out the pictures below… All photography by Dani Parsons

We were so happy to be recognized by the Texas Diversity Council at the Diversity FIRST Awards Luncheon.  As a small business, it’s super important to us to make a positive impact on our community, and being recognized for our diversity as a business really means a lot.  Our  print family is happy to accept anyone who works hard and is just a little bit weird.  Pictured below are our owner Gilbert, his wife Lucia, and our Large Format Specialist Ben at the ceremony.  Thanks Texas Diversity!
