Royce’s Prop Shop

Recently, Justin Dean from Royce’s Prop Shop needed a backdrop solution for an upcoming event. He was faced with having to print a 116′ x 8′ worth of backdrop in a quick amount of time, and he had a strict budget that needed to be met. Since the backdrop would only be used for a single event and with the other considerations we came up with a solution that worked well for him and his client.

The final count was 44 pieces for the backdrop. Justin commented ‘The event went great, the walls turned out great, and we were so happy you were able to help us out with the project!’  We are looking forward to working with Royce’s Prop Shop again in the future.

Color Print Project for NewSchool of Architecture & Design

We recently worked with NewSchool of Architecture & Design on an exciting project to display their student’s work on a redevelopment project for the Ford District in Central Eastside of Portland. The project included 34 large format boards accompanied by smaller format books that displayed the student’s work on the project.

The images were on display at the Center For Architecture earlier this month. For further information regarding this project please go to the project webpage at http://www.pdxforddistrict.com.

Think Joule KOIN Tower Project


Over the past few months WPB has worked with Think Joule on a project for KOIN Tower. The scope of the project involved printing and installing a display showcase for KOIN Tower’s upcoming renovation. Think Joule wanted to utilize the space as effectively as possible which meant that we needed to provide graphics that were printed onto plexiglass, adhesive vinyl for the walls, clear vinyl for windows and adhesive frost vinyl for the front door. The project was challenging both logistically and technically given the different medias and color matching.

We enjoyed working with Think Joule on this project. Jennifer Bryan, Owner, Creative Director at Think Joule had the following to say, “WBP was a stellar partner from project launch all the way through to installation. They were methodical in working with our designers to ensure that we had the best possible outcome for our client. The proof is in the final install. We have been getting rave reviews on our design and we owe credit to WBP for their precision, quality and high standards. Can’t wait to work with them again in the future”.

WP&B Décor Project for Central Catholic High

WP&B recently worked with Central Catholic High School on a décor project for the Murphy Center expansion. Central Catholic’s goal was to celebrate past and present students by having images of them in their new expansion hallway and the Heritage Wall. The hallway leading up to the Heritage Wall has six images.


The Heritage Wall has 62 photos. Each photo was printed at 32” x 39” on an ecofriendly wallpaper and installed on the Heritage Wall which is located in an open stairwell in the new Murphy Center expansion.

Portland University’s Creative Logo

Portland University was looking for a way to welcome new students to the campus. They knew that they wanted to use their Pilots nickname with the students taking the place of the letter ‘I’. To achieve the desired effect, we printed directly onto FalcolnBoard and used a PVC backing support for additional rigidity. The base of each letter is an Expolinc stand.


Joe Kuffner of Portland University came up with the concept and told us, “The letters were a HUGE hit… there were students and families taking pictures with them literally all day during our freshman move-in, and there was usually a line.”


What should the resolution for my image or graphic be?

Resolution should be set at 300 dpi. Image quality is very important in how graphics will reproduce. FYI, Graphics pulled from the internet tend to be 72 dpi and reproduce very poorly. Avoid using those graphics because they will look pixelated when printed. Read More

Do you prefer RGB or CMYK?

If possible, save all graphics in CMYK mode.  RGB do not typically print as true to color as CMYK.... Read More
