A Green Reaction to an Automotive Trend & a Vehicle Wrap Case Study
New Substrate for Aluminum Surfaces
SpeedPro Denver is now offering a re-usable product for printing vehicle decals. iTacGreen by Continental Grafix is a PVC-free substrate that adheres to aluminum–the design solution for vehicles that are manufactured with aluminum panels instead of the traditional steel. Decals printed on iTacGreen can be easily removed, the adhesive side wiped down, safely stored on a flat surface then re-applied and re-used up to approximately 10 times and then recycled!
You’ve Seen Our Fleet Work Fleet Roaming the State
SpeedPro Denver has been working with CDOT since 2016 and wrapping its buses since 2017 – some as long as 45 feet — which required securing an oversized bay. As the CDOT state-wide bus service has grown, so has our fleet work for them. Our experienced installer has wrapped the fleet of 37 – Bustangs, Snowstangs and Outriders – and completed the largest in less than three working days!
Museum Walls & Windows By SpeedPro Denver
We Were Involved from Start to Finish!
The Counterterrorism Educational Learning Lab (thecell.org), located in Denver’s Civic Center Cultural Complex, was recently remodeled. Our studio printed and installed all the wall and window graphics for the updated Exhibit. Seventeen walls, all 9 feet high and as long as 30 feet wide were wallpapered. Total wall surface covered exceeded 1,970 square feet.
Eleven groupings of windows with as many as 15 panes in a group were covered. This includes a six-panel interior glass accordion-style movable wall that has frosted vinyl on one side. Most of the windows have graphics installed inside and outside. Total glass surface covered exceeded 3,400 square feet.
We’re so proud of our work on this project we’ve developed a brief case study with more details and photographs. It covers how extensively studio owner Greg Ellison was involved as the project consultant and how the design evolved over the past 18 months.

Another Fleet Expertly Wrapped by SpeedPro Denver
Our new client and neighbor Marini Diesel Inc. (MDI), brought us four trucks for shiny new partial wraps. We printed and installed graphics on three Dodge Ram 5500’s–all different years so design adjustments were done for each as necessary–and one massive DaimlerChrysler AG Freightliner. Logos, CDOT numbers and key messages are freshly displayed on all sides of the vehicles including the hood, cab doors and nearly 100% coverage on the sides. The Commerce City-based trucks parts and service company has been family-owned and operated since 1969.

A Unique Visual Commitment to Building Joy
FBC Remodel came to SpeedPro Denver to produce this distinctive wall mural that’s a combination of 3-dimensional letters, numbers and signs. The custom design, production and installation led to this motivating and memorable finished product 9 feet wide x 7 feet high in FBC’s Denver conference room. The mural is composed of more than 35 separate pieces. FBC Remodel offices in Chicago and St. Louis Park, Minnesota will getting this same artwork installed by SpeedPro’s in those markets.
Chef Tony Rojas has had his life transformed by a food truck. He approached Charlie Rocket’s The Dream Machine Foundation for help in starting his own business after going through a rough patch including experiencing homelessness during the early stages of the pandemic. SpeedPro learned the story through a viral video on TikTok–as one of more than 35,000,000 viewers in 24 hours–then offered a free wrap to support entrepreneur Tony’s dream. Collaborating with a Dreamr illustrator, SpeedPro Denver fine-tuned the design then printed and wrapped Tony’s Nacho Tacos food truck. Great. Big. Graphics. It’s what we do!

A Serious Business Picks Big, Bright & Bold Office Graphics
Software vendor Swimlane’s memorable branding is on full display throughout its Louisville HQ. SpeedPro Denver was contracted to produce great big graphics for its nice but too-bland new offices early in 2020. One year later, we’re proud to report that eye-catching wall murals covering the entire reception area have been expertly installed. We also printed and handled five large panels of frosted window graphics that provide privacy for the conference room, wrapped several doors—singles and doubles—and a large pillar. The photos tell the story of this large, colorful job!
Major Visual Campus Refresh Handled by SpeedPro Denver & ACHS Alumni
More than 2,200 students at Aurora Central High School are enjoying what looks like a brand-new campus inside! More than 700 feet of hallways 8 feet high (that’s 5,627 square feet of vinyl!) that were a 1950’s light green have been invigorated with colorful vinyl wraps using the schools’ trademark dark green, Vegas Gold, black accents, and the Trojan mascot. This project was part of the bigger school-wide rebranding that included color changes, updating how the interlocking A and C are used and modernizing the Trojan head mascot icon.
Over several weeks, a master installer wound his way through the campus wrapping hallways, alcoves and doors, worked around water fountains, continued on to the gym covering walls, doors and a pillar, then wrapped the girls’ locker room and swimming pools doors. This multi-week installation was handled 100% by professional Roman Romano who is coincidently an ACHS alum! SpeedPro Denver was proud to be chosen to handle this massive project.

Helping the Planet & Bringing Color to Schools
SpeedPro Denver gives by recycling as much as we can. We work with Green for Life, a great service organization that provides us with data we can share on Colorado Gives Day. Over 12 months, from November 2019 through October 2020, our studio recycled 1,752 pounds of materials. That translates into saving enough electricity to power the average US home for 213 days. It also means we conserved 120 gallons of oil and 3,985 gallons of water. The amount of green house gas emissions avoided was 2,396 pounds!
Several Colorado schools are recipients of our in-kind donations of great big graphics and have been for several years. Due to the pandemic, demand for our services to them has been reduced but we continue to communicate with our beneficiaries to assure them we will be here when they need us again. We’re thankful to continue operating at 100%.
Showing Off Our Work for the Salvation Army
SpeedPro Denver is proud the Salvation Army chose our studio to handle its large format print needs. We just completed a full wrap on its 24’ box truck and earlier this year wrapped a 26’ Emergency Disaster Services truck. Seven 8’ x 3’ banners were printed and installed. And, we decaled a disaster services sandbagger used in the field for fire-, flood- and water-related disasters where there’s a need to build dams or guide the flow of water. What can we design, print and install for you? www.speedpro.com/denver email@example.com 303-426-4199.

Supporting Education and Working Greener
SpeedPro Denver is proud to share its outreach stories and green efforts on Colorado Gives Day 2019
Our studio continues to support three Park Hill neighborhood schools with high-level sponsorships providing in-kind print donations of large format graphics valued at $2,000 per school. Printing projects included banners and event signage, lots and lots of event signage! With our studio’s change in leadership (Greg Ellison took the helm on November 1, Darin Schneider is moving on January 1), we now support The Nomad Playhouse in Boulder with a $5,000 cash donation as a Premier Sponsor.
We continually strive to work greener and with data from Alpine Waste & Recycling, we can share with confidence that from November 2018 through October 2019, this studio recycled 1,561 pounds of materials. That led to 3,553 gallons of water saved and 2,156 pounds of emissions avoided. It also equates to saving enough electricity to power the average U.S. home for 190 days–more than half a year of energy!
Reach for the Stars Fundraiser Supported by SpeedPro Denver
McAuliffe International School recently held its third annual fundraising event in The Hanger at Stanley. The cavernous setting was beautifully decorated with massive balloon bouquets and innovative balloon “walls” dotted around the airport hanger. And, there was signage. Lots of signage to engage the hundreds of parents, sponsors and community donors in attendance. SpeedPro Denver printed and delivered 70 pieces.
As a three-year in-kind donor to MIS, we were happy to once again be part of the event by providing our great big graphics to showcase live and silent auction items. We also printed a seven-foot-high banner that acknowledged the schools many sponsors and welcome, table, entry and other festive signage.
Three Schools, 120 Print Pieces Courtesy of SpeedPro Denver
In-kind donations to Park Hill Elementary, the Denver Language School and McAuliffe Middle School were once again used to support their respective annual fundraisers. For all three schools, the studio also printed and installed graphics indoors and out to promote graduations, chess clubs, other sponsors, and school pride.
Hanging and retractable banners of all sizes, parking and directional signage and a series of 10-foot high feather banners rounded out the more than 120 print pieces valued at $6,000 collectively completed by SpeedPro Denver.
We are proud to support our local community and will be sponsoring these schools again over the 2019-2020 academic year.

Impressing Our Peers While Driving Our Own Studio to Success
National franchisor SpeedPro just closed out its 2019 convention where it welcomed more than 100 owners and staffers representing 135 print studios throughout the U.S. to the Grand Hyatt Denver. The SpeedPro Denver studio created a custom event logo, put a new wrap on President & CEO Larry Oberly’s vehicle, and generated nearly 50 printed pieces. With an audience of printers in attendance for the three day convention that ended on Monday, April 29, the studio designed, printed, delivered, and installed its perfect work to show off for fellow franchisees.
SpeedPro signage blanketed the Hyatt with pillar wraps, conference room exterior and interior signage, directional signage, retractable banners, trade show graphics, door and window graphics, and a stacked three foot cube display communicating the theme, agenda and other useful information.
The conference theme, Driving Your Business to Success, is a fun play on words for us fleet and vehicle wrap studios. Contact SpeedPro Denver today and we’ll drive your business to success next with event graphics and more!
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.

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.

Great Energy Coming from New Client NREL
SpeedPro Denver handled numerous jobs for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory over the past few months.

Our studio is thrilled to work with this Golden-based world-renowned research facility.

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!
