The Client

Huddersfield Town FC, England, UK

The Opportunity

When team buses travel the length and breadth of the UK, they offer fantastic opportunities to promote the club and the brand. However successfully promoting the brand brings the issue of how to keep the players inside the bus private and safe at all times.

The Solution

A new livery on the Huddersfield Town FC Team bus was recently unveiled, resulting in a striking end result which will definitely attract attention wherever it goes.

The attention however, will not result in any invasion of privacy for the travelling players and staff due to a superbly executed application of vinyl by the Stoke-on-Trent based printing company Graphix.

Graphix managed to apply 140metres of both solid and Contra Vision perforated film in just two days, but this is even more impressive when you notice the accuracy of colour matching between the two different films.

Contra Vision was chosen as the perfect solution to ensure accurate graphic reproduction and long-lasting performance.  Graphix used Performance Black on White 40% (WBPAG40) together with an Optically Clear Overlaminate (CL50CY) which provides protection from abrasion and washing chemicals whilst preventing dirt and water from entering the perforated holes.

Getting the colours right on perforated film can prove to be a challenge but Contra Vision’s White on Black film is supplied on their patented Contra Vision® Grayliner™. This liner ensures printers are able to achieve the most accurate colour matching result. The grey colour, visible through the perforated holes, creates a realistic background to show how the printed image will really look on a window. It avoids the washed-out appearance created by a white liner and ensures the final result is right first time.

Definite Premier League quality.
