vinyl-wrapped Neo

Hi folks! I used to follow this group around 2008, when I was doing NaNoWriMo, and loved looking at everyone's fun mods. Now I work at a printing company and I figured I could try my hand at it using some of our capabilities. After bugging my coworker with a million questions about which kind of vinyl to use, I grabbed a nice hi-res image of green marble, then had it printed on cast vinyl (the kind used for vehicle wraps).

 

I had our production manager apply it because I know absolutely nothing about vinyl installation, and I'm super happy with the outcome. The primary downside to this method is that you can't apply a laminate to cast vinyl, so it will accumulate scratches, mostly on the edges. I weep to think how lovely it would look with a crystal matte lam, but apparently that's impossible. Anyways, I'm off to go resume my duties as Denver's most insufferable hipster. Thanks for all the direction and inspiration you guys have provided over the years!
