    Posted July 19, 2011 By in Branded Dealership, i.M. Branded With | No Comments

    Mercedes-Benz Sprinter of San Diego: The latest installment of i.M. Branded’s graphic branding program includes a brand of one of the most versatile vehicles/transports on the road: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. Although i.M. Branded/Innovative Media has wrapped multiple Sprinter vehicles for various events and promotions in the past, implementing its popular graphic branding program for Sprinter was a novelty. i.M. Branded was granted the opportunity to showcase its Sprinter graphics for Mercedes-Benz Sprinter of San Diego, and the facility took advantage of its wall space, positioning four massive AMRs (Artist Mural Replaceables) throughout its Service & Parts desks as well as the Customer Lounge, with the graphics ranging in size from 60” x 42” to 96” x 42”. Thank you again from i.M. Branded to MB/Sprinter San Diego!

  • i.M. Branded Heads To The Track

    Posted July 1, 2011 By in i.M. Branded With | No Comments

    i.M. Branded and Jake’s Automotive have teamed up once again to create a custom wrap for the Jake’s Automotive-sponsored junior drag car (see: 1965 Plymouth Gets a Modern Wrap Design.) The vehicle, inspired by professional funny car driver and NAPA-sponsored Ron Capps, features flames, the official NAPA logo, the words “Auto Parts” as text, as well as additional graphic designs, including the junior driver’s name, Mia. Furthermore, the graphics were designed and completed in the official NAPA colors, further-enhancing the graphics’ impact and its ability to stand out from the crowd as a professional car duplicate; and it does. i.M. Branded utilized all-weather, high-speed tested cut’n’stick logos to achieve the wrap for the Jake’s Automotive vehicle in the NHRA Jr. Dragster Program. i.M. Branded would like to thank Jake’s Automotive for, again, coming to us on the project, and wish Mia all the best in this summer’s circuit (Ron Capps may have competition sooner than later)! Have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend everyone!

  • smart Vehicle, Vintage Style

    Posted June 27, 2011 By in i.M. Branded, Vehicle Wraps With | No Comments

    smart Center – Milwaukee, WI: As the summer months have made their entrance, albeit with roller coaster-like weather, so have some of America’s classic summer events. The quintessential American summer event, however, is the road trip. The quintessential road trip vehicle? The station wagon. While the popularity of station wagons has unquestionably died down, their bravado and place in history (even road trip history) has not. As such, i.M. Branded was thrilled at the thought of a “woody” wrap for a smart car when approached by a customer through smart Center Milwaukee. Creatively working with the customer and smart management, i.M. Branded custom-tailored this smart car wrap (3M vinyl) utilizing a hand-picked wood grain finish and covering the vehicle’s doors to create a fantastic fusion of modern technology (the smart car) and a classic, vintage style (the “woody”). The team at i.M. Branded had a wonderful experience in creating the wrap, as well as working with smart Center Milwaukee and its customer. If taken on a road trip, we certainly hope the customer and their family arrive at Wally World more smoothly than the Griswolds.

    Ed Hicks Mercedes-Benz of Corpus Christi, TX is the latest dealership to utilize i.M. Branded’s custom graphic branding program (and they certainly took advantage of the opportunity). Bold, strategically-placed images highlight Mercedes-Benz’s renowned history, as well as newer models currently residing within the showroom walls. i.M. Branded’s brand-approved imagery hover over the showroom, service drive, employee offices, and even customer waiting areas in a multitude of sizes and aesthetically – impactful brand images. With the direction of Ed Hicks’ management, i.M. Branded was able to fully-tailor the dealership using their highly popular Artist Mural Replaceable (AMR) fabric system, which allows users to simply and freely replace fabric images at their discretion. On the communication and ordering process with i.M. Branded, Charlie Hicks had this to say:

    Obviously we have been dealing with a tremendous amount of sub-contractors and installation teams with our construction and have run the gamut of the good, the bad and the ugly…Your guys have been the most efficient and most professional from the standpoint of flexibility with field decisions, stopping to suggest and confirm placement when presented with changes from your visit and the final installation, and their ability to work without disrupting any or our operations. Your install team has been fantastic…their standard of quality is in full concert with ours!

     
    A huge (everything is bigger in Texas) “thank you” goes out to Ed Hicks and their management for giving i.M. Branded the opportunity!

Branded was excited to help the management at Freedom Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) in Duncanville, TX plan, coordinate and install one of the most impactful brand elements a dealer could exhibit in mid-June. Choosing one of four standard model sizes, Freedom CDJR chose ‘Arch B,’ which stands at 24’ tall, 20’ wide and 3 1/2’ thick. Comprised of a combination of aluminum composite, glass, and polished chrome, Freedom CDJR opted to include the spandrel glass (optional) and completed their project within 1 ½ months. i.M. Branded assisted Freedom management every step of the way, including constant coordination of project elements and a detailed proposal of the arch post-installation. The arch itself looks fantastic, and one could not ask for a bolder or more apparent brand element.

  • SmartCar Electric Drive Wrap

    Posted February 27, 2011 By in Branded Dealership, i.M. Branded, SmartCar Wraps, Vehicle Wraps With | Comments Off on SmartCar Electric Drive Wrap

    The smart Electric Drive is a modern marvel: harnessing the latest in alternative energy technology, it complements the best elements of the standard smart with electricity and a vehicle that requires no gas. As such, doesn’t it deserve accessories that are just as edgy? It does, which is why i.M. Branded collaborated with smart USA to create a custom partial wrap that not only looks, but feels, electric. The wrap was designed to showcase the same elements the car features, and precisely why Innovative Media utilized a reflective vinyl that glows at night. The wrap is currently available through smart USA and Innovative Media.
