Location: Miami
Tools and Supplies: 6-mm and 3-mm acrylic sheets from Acrycast, Orajet 3620M transparent #000 matte vinyl, Orajet 3640M white #010 vinyl, 3-mm black PVC, Black PVC frame DPF brand, Roland TrueVis VG2-640 64-in. eco-solvent inkjet printer/cutter.

BREAKING RECORDS ON and off the field, Lionel Messi is one of the most decorated footballers in history. With the help of SVN Designs, the football legend and fellow iconic players of the Argentina national team have been encapsulated in a 30-square-foot multilayer print. Standing from floor to ceiling, this print features vibrant colors and intricate details made possible by using an advanced printing approach and laser cutting to add a multidimensional touch.

Pushing the boundaries of wide-format digital printing, this project incorporated multiple advanced techniques to create a truly unique product. Using a Roland TrueVis VG2-640 64-inch eco-solvent inkjet printer/cutter, the image was printed in mirror mode on Orajet 3620M transparent #000 matte vinyl, then mounted behind an acrylic layer consisting of 3-mm and 6-mm Acrycast acrylic sheets. Separate parts of the acrylic were then cut using a BBM Solutions 35 x 55 CO2 130W laser cutting machine and adhered with 3M 9502 tape to create multilayer effects that produced drop shadows and added a three-dimensional perspective. To enhance the colors, the acrylic was backed with Orajet 3640M white #010 vinyl and was supported by 3-mm black PVC. This 92 x 48-inch multilayer acrylic print was completed with a black PVC frame ensuring a seamless and secure display.

To add to the project’s notability, SVN went viral on TikTok with two separate posts that showcased the creative process and hard work of its team. Viewed by 6 million users and generating half a million likes, this project made a huge impact on social media and resonated with printmakers and football fans alike.
