From Season-Ticket Holder to Printing Partner

How one wide-format printer became the go-to print and sign provider for the Carolina Hurricanes.




JARED OSTENDORF LOVES hockey. The owner of a Minuteman Press franchise for nearly 15 years in Fayetteville, NC, he has been an NHL season ticket holder for his hometown heroes, the Carolina Hurricanes. Little did he know that his love of the sport would turn into a lucrative partnership between his print shop and the Carolina Hurricanes.

“Originally, I was a season ticket holder prior to becoming a corporate partner,” says Ostendorf.  “When I heard about the opportunity to become the print and sign provider of the Carolina Hurricanes, I reached out and had lunch with one of their executives.  After supplying a handful of professional references and answering questions centered around their sense of urgency and meeting deadlines, we shook hands and I told them I would do my best to meet their expectations.”

For the past three seasons, Jared has delivered on that promise. The firm does all signage for the Hurricanes, who are the main tenant of the PNC Arena. Ostendorf’s company creates the outside graphics on the PNC Arena, signage for the playoffs and win tracker, inside locker room graphics, dasher boards (the decals around the walls of the ice), graphics behind the benches, penalty boxes, Olympia ice resurfacer wraps, and more. Because of the partnership, the company has had the opportunity to work with customers such as Pepsi, Chick-fil-A, Lexus, Invisalign, as well as the NHL directly.

  • One Sided
    Window Perf or View-Thru Vinyl provides great-looking exterior graphics, but allows you to see out of the windows from the interior.
  • Install
    Installations are crucial to the longevity of the graphics.  For best results, it’s key to in-line the vinyl just inside the window gaskets so all graphics stick well to the glass rather than on the rubber.
  • Hi-Res
    Great-looking wall and window graphics must start with hi-res pictures to give the clarity a professional job demands.
