Assemble the Minions!
Although they might at ﬁrst glance be mistaken for something akin to “Despicable Me” minions, these are actually Simplexa 3M Integrated Cyclers from Focus Diagnostics – instruments
used by laboratories to test for a variety of diseases. Iconography (iconographystudios.net)
in Los Alamitos, California, adds a fun, custom element to these devices, wrapping them so
they look like everything from dinosaurs to football helmets and even ﬁshbowls (the end
user chooses the ﬁnal theme). The shop uses its Roland Soljet Pro III XC-540 printer, with
3M Controltac IJ180 ﬁlm and Scotchcal 8518 overlaminate in producing the wraps. Iconography produces about 40 of these per year.
