Easy cart makeover

file_000Once upon a time there was a grey cart that lived in the Vortex. It had a bevy of amazing items that Teens could use to channel their inner artist and get creative.

There was only one problem: the cart was too plain.

Using Studio 300 technology we gave the cart a much-needed makeover. After designing the graphics using Adobe Illustrator, we sent the files to our vinyl cutter, and then installed the finished pieces on the cart. The pictures tell the story.
