Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
On December 3, 2012, Nationwide Trailer Wraps Manufacturer, JMR Graphics, comments on Ottawa, Canada’s new one-year pilot program to help the city save money and curb illegal graffiti while discussing the advantages of vehicle wraps outside of moving advertisements.
According to an article in the Ottawa Sun, the city as approved a pilot-program that will help the city save money and “eradicate graffiti vandalism” due to the trouble Ottawa’s City Hall has experienced with keeping its power boxes graffiti free.
The program calls for “twenty four traffic signal control boxes on Bank St. between Queen St. and Riverdale Ave. will be covered in a washable vinyl wrap.” Before voting to move forward with this program, the city determined that upwards of $35,000 a year goes towards cleaning graffiti off Ottawa power boxes, and $4,460 was spent “in the pilot area of Bank St.” The total cost of these vinyl shields is $5538.
The article mentions that City Hall Officials wrote on the vinyl shields with black markers, and Ottawa’s Mayor, Jim Watson, “washed it off easily with a cleaning substance.” It’s also noted that spray paint comes off as well.
JMR Graphics representative, Michael DeRicco, says, “I think this is great application of the advantages of vinyl. It’s a cost-effective way to keep the Ottawa’s power boxes graffiti free. It’s the same with vehicle wraps. You don’t only need to use car, truck, or Trailer Wraps as mobile billboards. You can simply use them in lieu of painting your car. A full-body wrap is so much easier to clean and a lot less expensive than a full-body paint job.” Michael continues, “Moreover, paint doesn’t protect your car from scratches. If you want to advertise on a vehicle or any other space, vinyl wraps or graphics are the most effective and economical way to go about it.”
