In this Lee’s Sandwiches case study we explore how our team worked alongside David Santos over at Ds3 Designs to put together some amazing print graphics for the always delicious, Lee’s Sandwiches. Tackling a mixture of interior graphics, way-finding signage, and exterior graphics, from graphics design to print to final installation, it all came together wonderfully.
Printing On Different Substrates
The interior signage consisted of the use of materials such as acrylic, bubble board, and vinyl graphics. With some graphics being direct printed, such as the vinyl, and other graphics like the way-finding signs having been brushed aluminum signs with colored acrylic mounted to the surface. Other signage, like the image seen above, were direct printed using 4mm bubble board and mounted with 1-inch standoff screws.

Clear Acrylic Printing
One of the more unique elements of this project consisted in the clear acrylic prints that we did for the separation wall between the market and dining area (seen in the right picture above). These were done by setting up the art to print a specific way when done at opacity on the clear acrylic, creating a beautiful image that allows light to pass through and pop certain colors of the image.
This project allowed for our PRI teams to coordinate a solid plan to execute exactly what the customer was looking for and to maintain our typical high standards when it comes to print quality, collaboration, and the passion that we put behind every print project.
