    Was asked to quote some printed sponsorship ads for the boards of the local arena.

    Anyone ever done them?

    What media recommendations?

    I usually use 3651ra for just about everything. Will it work here?

    Thanks and feel free to move if this is in the wrong place.

    Denver.
    I don't see why it wouldn't work. Are you also supplying the substrate?

    No. We will be using the preexisting boards which are pretty beat up from skates hitting the boards.

    Thanks again,

    Most boards are done in relective for the local team here. They are in the ECHL League.

    It will depend on if they have any minor league teams play there. ECHL, AHL, CHL, NCAA. That stuff will dictate if they need to be reflective or not. You can ask them they will tell you very easily if they need to be or not. 3165RA with a Matte lam will be fine. These will get beat up and need to be replaced on a regular basis. I use to sell them an extra set or upsell them to putting lexan over them.

    We don't do a lot, but the ones we do are reverse lexan.

    Try talking them into banners that you can stretch over the boards. That way you don't have to worry about the beat up boards showing through when you wrap them.. plus faster, cheaper, and easier to replace.

    We are next to the Super Rink (8 sheets under one roof- I think I have
    heard the largest in the US?) and they (and all the other rinks we do
    dasherboard signs for) use banner material behind polycarb panels.
