30 Nov Interior Wall Graphics Welcome at Lighthouses in North Carolina
You would be surprised by the number of phone calls we get about wall graphics. It seems like businesses in just about every industry have discovered the benefits of this marketing tool. Bodie Island Lighthouse wanted to look great with wall graphics for lighthouses in North Carolina, so they contacted Gate City Signs & Graphics. Here’s a little recap of what we did for them.
What Is Bodie Island Lighthouse?
Situated four miles north of Oregon Inlet near Nags Head on the Outer Banks, Bodie Island Lighthouse is one of the dozens of lighthouses that dot the North Carolina Coast. This lighthouse was first lit in 1872 and stands at 165 feet tall. It was recently renovated to be climbable to the public via a 214-step spiral staircase to the top. This lighthouse is unique because it is one of a few tall, brick tower lighthouses in the United States, and it casts its light using an original first-order Fresnel lens.
When the managers of such a unique part of our state’s history came to us for wall graphics for lighthouses in North Carolina, we were thrilled to help out. They wanted to add a historical feel to the interiors of the newly renovated structure. Fortunately, we had just the solution.
What We Did for Bodie Island Lighthouse
Our first step of the graphics making process was to meet with the client and to get a good look at the venue. Now that Bodie Island Lighthouse was attracting a lot of visitors, they wanted to improve the appeal of the inside. We recommended wall graphics featuring photos of the surrounding areas. They liked this idea, and once they approved the art proofs we provided them with, we got down to work.
For both of the wall graphics, we used durable vinyl adhesive films. Our large format digital printer printed the photographs directly onto the vinyl. We then added an overlaminate to the graphics to protect them for many years to come. Next, we worked with the lighthouse’s schedule to install the graphics when we would not disrupt business as usual. In the end, they were completely satisfied with the work we did.
