SINCE THE METEORIC rise of the X-Games and the subsequent video game craze in the early 2000s, snowmobiles have become a part of American pop culture. You’re already cool if you’re on a snowmobile, so why not take it to the next level and do it in style? Deviant Ink gave the Swedish riding team Unknown Crew a series of four custom snowmobile wraps so they could hit the slopes with a fresh makeover. In fact, each of these designs were created by a different member of the Unknown Crew using Deviant Ink’s online design tool. The total square footage of each wrap is approximately 40 square feet.
For Deviant Ink, the biggest challenge came in ensuring there was some element of uniformity to the designs of the wraps, while still maintaining the custom look of each different sled. The design team was able to achieve this after a process of trial and error, finally landing on designs that were unique, yet uniform. The team used a Roland DG TrueVis VG2-540 54-inch wide-format printer/cutter to print all of the wraps onto Substance Incorporated 6 mil vinyl. Deviant Ink was especially proud of this job as it utilized their online design template to perfection. They’ve been creating a library of original designs since 2016 and its effectiveness has been a great boost for the shop.
