Clegg Media was commissioned by GPY&R Brisbane to print and install a large aeroplane wrap as part of the Tatts Powerball 25 million promotional campaign in December 2016. The brief was to make the plane appear to be covered in Christmas wrapping paper complete with a giant bow and gift tag, without leaving any glue residue or damaging the plane.
A great deal of pre planning was involved to ensure all aspects of the project were completed effectively. Measurements were taken of the Alliance Airlines Fokker 70 and templates made to ensure precise trimming of the banners.
The plane wrap was printed on Clegg Media’s large format HP Scitex XP5500 Industrial Printer on a light weight banner stock. The wrap took 12 hours to print.
To avoid leaving glue residue or damaging the existing graphics on the plane a low tack self adhesive vinyl was applied to the underside of the plane, the banners were then attached to the self adhesive vinyl. The gift tag was directly printed to foam core in 2 separate pieces on Clegg Media’s hi resolution Titan UV printer and joined together on site.
The plane was installed inside a hanger at Brisbane Airport. The install took 4 people, 3 days to complete and the removal was done by 3 people in 6 hours the following day. The plane was then towed and positioned at an aerobridge for viewing by incoming and outgoing passengers. Promotional photos and video for TV coverage were taken by GPY&R Brisbane.
The whole project was managed by Barry Clegg, General Manager Clegg Media.
