The commission of a 50 x 260-foot
banner may intimidate some, but with a
motto of "no task is too big, no detail is
too small," MetroMedia Technologies
(mmt.com) was ready for the job.
Designed to announce the expansion of
the Beavers' Valley Football Center at
MMT's longtime client Oregon State
University, the banner was printed on
the shop's proprietary 32-foot drum
printer on 13-ounce MMT 313 mesh
vinyl, which resists wind and allows rain
to flow through to the roof, says Paul
Nevue, account director.
"It was a very unique install," Nevue
adds; it took a three-man crew three days
to position the banner's two overlapping
pieces using a 70-foot crane. The team
used 320 metal fasteners and zip ties to
attach it directly to the roof.
