Speakeasy-Themed Fundraiser Wildly Successful!
Party-goers dressed in 1920’s garb braved the elements on Friday, February 22 to attend the annual I Heart Park Hill Auction & Party hosted by Park Hill Elementary. SpeedPro Denver is proud to share that our studio donated 31 print pieces to visually convert the Montview Presbyterian Church into a speakeasy. Graphics included a 15 foot long marquee banner, five by five foot banners, signage for the auction and silent auction as well as sponsor, registration, photo booth, and student project posters, among others.
This is the third year we’ve supported the school’s events with in-kind print donations. We also sponsor the Denver Language School and McAuliffe Middle School, both right here in our Park Hill neighborhood. Congratulations to the event team on exceeding their ambitious fundraising goal!
SpeedPro Denver Gives Back In Many Ways
We’re taking a moment on Colorado Gives Day, December 4, to share how our thriving studio is giving back to the planet, the neighborhood and the art community.
The Planet: Over six months we recycled 2,278 pounds of materials; about a third of all our “waste” as measured by Alpine Waste & Recycling. That translates into 16 trees saved, 5,183 gallons of water saved and we avoided expelling the carbon equivalent of 3,114 pounds of emissions into our atmosphere.
The Neighborhood: Again this academic year we are sponsoring three Park Hill schools with in-kind donations of large format printing. Denver Language School, Park Hill Elementary and McAuliffe Middle School have ordered free graphics for fundraising events, outdoor banners and indoor signage.
The (Aspiring) Art Community: Early November we hosted about a dozen design students from Minnesota’s Bemidji State University who were on an excursion to meet with trade show companies and large format printers. Our owner and production manager gave the eager students a detailed tour and answered dozens of questions about getting designs out of the software and off the screen onto sides of buildings, into trade show booths, onto gym walls and floors, and wrapped onto 40 foot long buses.
A Good Terminator and a Healthier Planet
Komptech Americas, proud manufacturers of machines built for shredding and separating biomass and solid waste with colorful names like Crambo, Hurrikan and Terminator, came to SpeedPro Denver to print 11 over-sized canvas prints for its Denver office. Prints as large as 13 feet wide and 4 feet tall were installed. We were the natural choice since over the past few years we printed trailer wraps, trade show graphics, floor graphics, and fleet decals for the growing business. They are so committed to their branding we also printed a graphic for their lobby aquarium!
Indoors & Out, SpeedPro Provides Great. Big. Graphics. for Regis University
SpeedPro Denver has been printing and installing all kinds of graphics for Regis over the past few years. You see our work outside in the aluminum reserved parking and permits signs and in the decals on the Campus Safety vehicles. Moving indoors, we have provided acrylic signs for the Technology Training Center, branded podium signs, banners for registration desks, and a wall mural for the Anderson College of Business. We enjoy working with this prestigious institution and our pride shows in our quality work.
Hope Starts With You
What an engaging, powerful message from the Denver Rescue Mission! SpeedPro Denver is proud to be its long-time large format print partner. Most recently, we removed and placed new graphics on nine box trucks and two vans. Our highly trained, experienced wrappers hand-installed all that vinyl in less than two weeks.
Great Energy Coming from New Client NREL
SpeedPro Denver handled numerous jobs for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory over the past few months. Anticipating a VIP (whom they would not name but turned out to be US Energy Secretary Rick Perry who toured the Lab on August 14), the campus went in over-drive to freshen up its main 8’ x 4’ entry signage, added a series of fun window graphics to its cafeteria, hung 20 custom double-sided Transforming Energy-themed pole banners, had decals printed and placed to cover vans’ sides, back doors and hoods, and even had us wrap a wind tunnel! Our studio is thrilled to work with this Golden-based world-renowned research facility.
Happy Anniversary to Us! We are 7 and Thriving!

Big, Bold Food Trucks Roam Our City Streets Hungry for Attention
Mile High Custom Food Trucks builds out step vans and trucks–lots of trucks. Then, SpeedPro Denver makes them memorable by printing and installing custom wraps and sometimes we get the fun task of designing too! That was the case for our most recent wrap job for Dos Gringos; two white guys who love fusing Mexican and American dishes so much they cook it nearly every day. At 26 feet long, the 12 hour installation went well and was delivered on schedule and the moving billboard will last anywhere from 5-10 years. You’ve probably seen some of our other stellar work roving around town including trucks for Island Vibes Jamaican food, Karma Indian fare, and Farmer Joe’s selling sandwiches, salads and soups. We wrap year-round so call us anytime for a free consultation.
Rattlesnake & Reindeer Dogs?! SpeedPro-Wrapped Downtown Food Carts Hard to Miss!
For many years the Denver studio has wrapped distinctive food trucks and carts for Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs and we just finished a cool new cart to kick off the outdoor season! The multi-level cart is eight feet long and the food truck 30 feet. We also print retail signage, table throws, menus on magnetic materials that can take the Colorado sun, hundreds of branded stickers, and special menus for carts rolling into Coors Field.
This happy client gave us a 5 Star Review with this glowing recommendation he headlined Consistently Excellent: “I’ve been a fan of Darin and SpeedPro for more than 6 years now. They have been my go-to company for all my large format printing needs. From designing and printing menu signs to wrapping hot dog carts the crew is fast, detail oriented, fairly priced and really easy to work with. I highly recommend SpeedPro for all your printing needs.” – Biker Jim

An expansion of the popular line of purple buses, CDOT is partnering with Greyhound to offer more routes to even more riders.
Honoring Fallen Police Officer Heath Gumm
Sadly, Adams County Deputy Gumm was killed in the line of duty on January 24, 2018. Just 32, Gumm had served in law enforcement for five years. SpeedPro Denver was honored to be chosen to print 400 End of Watch 6″ x 6″ vinyl stickers for the County to use on police cars honoring Heath and his service to his community.
144 Windows = 5 Attention-Grabbing Fords
SpeedPro Denver has just completed the installation of an impressive 144 window job for Larry H. Miller in Lakewood! The five vehicle photo array showcases Ford’s top sellers including the F150, Fusion and Explorer. Each roughly 4’x 4’ window was covered with perforated window film with optically clear laminate to deliver maximum impact and hold up in Colorado’s frequently changing climate. Up to 30 individual pieces of film collectively present a nearly 20 foot high photo of each vehicle creating impressive, inviting images.
Saxton Horne, the exclusive marketing agency for Larry H. Miller, has commissioned us to print indoor and outdoor banners pushing weekend specials, sales floor desk wraps, and fleet vehicle magnets for branding and limited time deals. We were thrilled to work with them again and look forward to doing more projects like this one. Drive by the dealership on 6th near Union and be prepared to be blown away!
