Extreme Sports with Extremely Cool Graphics

Three riders of Team D56 tested their body and will power at the BAJA 1000 race last month. MultiCAM, the creator of 5 different camouflage patterns, sponsored the team through the tough 24 hour race from Ensenada, Mexico to La Paz, Mexico.

Image Craft was commissioned to help with the Motorcycle helmet graphics as well as supply the wrap decals for the motorcycles. But this project was not just a normal helmet and dirt bike wrap.

Multi Cam-Baja 1000 Helmets

The Motocross helmets were required to be painted with a custom specified orange paint. The shade of orange had to be custom mixed in our fabrication shop for exact color matching.

The adhesive vinyl wrap with the MultiCAMM Alpine pattern requires  extreme color matching to achieve the specific color layers in the correct shades of grey. Thanks to our Pre-Press and Color Specialists at Image Craft we mastered the color combinations of the Alpine pattern.

Wrap and Trim and Assemble – business as usual. And off to the races we go.

The printed wrap film traveled with the team to Mexico to get applied to the Enduro bikes onsite.

Team D56 at the BAJA 1000 was a 3-man relay bike team made up of Special Operations veterans. The BAJA 1000 MultiCam Enduro and one helmet will be auctioned off at the upcoming NSSF Shot Show in Las Vegas to benefit U.S. and U.K. SOF charities.

All that glitters is not gold…

Our fabrication team just finished an incredibly fun project for the Arizona Lottery.

Job description was to “make a bucket full of gold” – 50 custom-fabricated gold bars. The gold bars are being used for a Monopoly game, during breaks at the SUNS basketball games.

So the question that has been around for ages: How does one make gold?

Start off with solid white pine wood, which was cut and routed to shape in our fabrication mill workshop.
