    I love it. Independence hall in Philadelphia had a wrap around it like this when I was there last year.

    As a PR can understand ... surely it has a great appearance when done, and will advertise greatly.

    During the winter .. it will be a good base for plastic.

    Only the government would waste money on something like this. "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain..." immediately comes to mind.

    I like it and it is keeping Americans working all wrapped into one very big wrap!

    Keep in mind if the mesh was not printed it would be a safety net to keep debris from falling onto sidewalks. Just like every other building in cities getting renovated and city safety requirements and in this day and age printed mesh is a hell of a lot less in cost than safety netting. That is why you see so many buildings getting these during renovation vs blank netting.

    However you guys would not of thought of that now would you of ?? Just would rather bash some non accurate BS that has nothing to do with the production and installation of this fun project.

    What Ev's..

    They were never taught to say, "Congratulations".
    Or give a hearty,, Well Done!
    Or even one of the 7 magic words.. Thank you.

    But I will.
    Well done, and thank you for the good idea.

    True, but it would be a safety net regardless if something were printed on it or not.

    The construction company probably bought it because they have to put something up and this makes them look much better than their competition who probably cheaps out and just puts up green netting making the job look like a battle-zone. I wonder if the actual difference in cost is all that great.

    BTW: How did you image that?

    No Mike..... sorry. Never thought of it as safety netting.

    Saw the original post for what is said and wholeheartedly said it was dynamite, but wondered who paid for it. Pretty cut & dry.

    Never thought mesh banner material was as strong as the webbed netting and canvas they use around buildings, I've seen.

    Sorry, if you viewed a question as being bashed.
     
  19. non accurate my ***, i'm pretty sure this could have been done much cheaper than printed mesh, how about plain mesh???

    when it's MY money being wasted, i don't care how cool it is or who made it....
