Murry Gunty

March 9, 2018 – Murry Gunty and Printscape Imaging and Graphics are going all out to make sure the renovated Printscape Arena at Southpointe has a revitalized aesthetic for the family-focused facility.

Working with Murry and Black Bear Sports Group, Inc., Printscape was given a unique opportunity that they we’re not entirely familiar with. Printscape Imaging and Graphics in Pittsburgh typically outputs graphics and signage for other brands, but this new opportunity required massive prints of the shop’s own logo. Printscape obtained naming rights to the local ice and sports arena and used a plethora of their wide-format printers to create exterior and interior signage that would rebrand the entire facility with its new aesthetic. The installation took two weeks and included 3500 square feet of printed signage.
