K6 Media has wrapped up a project for the Salvation Army with banners, murals and labels printed onto Drytac Retac Smooth 150

The Toy Mountain Project distributes toys to families throughout the Christmas period. Property company Morguard donated the use of a business suite in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, for the duration of the toy drive, which received a colourful makeover by K6 Media, a software developer which creates multimedia experiences – with help from Drytac.

The project was not a small task, involving installing several 20ft adhesive banners across painted bulkheads, applying print-to-cut graphics on stainless steel elevators, creating three wall murals measuring approximately 20ft x 9ft, and producing a variety of print-and-cut labels for the donations room to help sort the toys efficiently.

Drytac Retac Smooth 150 6mil white polymeric printable PVC is designed to be easy to install, to reposition, and to remove thanks to its innovative self-adhesive technology, making it the perfect choice for K6 Media.

As this project is a temporary installation in suites donated to the Salvation Army, the removability of the film was very important – a feature delivered by ReTac. Also, ReTac’s 6mil thickness allows us to print quickly on our HP Latex 570 printers and not have to take the additional time to laminate the film, yet still have a printed graphic that was easy to install}

Juan Runnells, production manager at K6 Media, says: “As this project is a temporary installation in suites donated to the Salvation Army, the removability of the film was very important – a feature delivered by ReTac.

“Also, ReTac’s 6mil thickness allows us to print quickly on our HP Latex 570 printers and not have to take the additional time to laminate the film, yet still have a printed graphic that was easy to install.”

This is not the first time Drytac has helped to promote a cause in Canada with its printable PVC. It was recently chosen to transform a shopping mall in Calgary, into a temporary tennis court to promote an upcoming tennis tournament.
