Agra Culture/SotaRol | In-Store Graphics
The owners of Agra Culture, serving healthy fast casual food, and SotaRol, serving Asian fusion food, were looking for some innovative graphic solutions for the restaurants' interiors. ASAP worked with them to choose appropriate substrates to help display their eye-catching designs.
The representation of the SotaRol logo was achieved by the use of painted cut letters and latex prints. An additional challenge was displaying a life-sized image of their iconic character on both sheet-rock and brick. The process for Agra Culture involved the extensive of use of cut vinyl. ASAP worked closely with various contractors to coordinate installation so that everything was ready in time for the restaurants’ openings.
With each project ASAP undertakes there are unique challenges to address. We are able to accommodate these with our expertise, our attention to detail and our many production options.
Celarity | Environmental Graphics
Celarity, a marketing, creative and digital recruiting agency, was remodeling its corporate offices. They contacted ASAP looking for solutions to add art to office walls.
Celarity decided to use iconic images of the Twin Cities and present them with a sepia-like effect. ASAP performed all the prepress production work to get the images into this form. It printed the graphics on an removable, wallpaper substrate and installed them once walls had been painted and cured.
Marlene Phipps, co-owner of Celarity, recently remarked, “We are still loving our wall murals!”
At ASAP, innovative options, seeing a project through to completion and making it as easy a process as possible is what we’re about.
Velocity Technology Solutions | Web Ordering Application
A document management solution can save an organization time, money, and provide greater control over the brand.
Velocity Technology, a leader in enterprise application cloud managed services, was looking for just such a workflow solution. Its needs were 1. Greater control over the look of their brand and 2. A simplified, economical way to produce business cards and envelopes. With offices worldwide, Velocity needed to provide Asian and European locations an approved file they could print locally. For North American offices, Velocity needed a provider to "print and distribute" physical materials.
ASAP developed a online portal for Velocity. Employees worldwide are able to order their business cards and other documents online. European and Asian employees create their document and receive a PDF for printing locally. For North America employees, ASAP prints and ships the item. Through an online approval process Velocity management is able to review and approve orders before release to make sure the brand's integrity is maintained.
What was a "nuisance" activity is now a streamlined workflow. And where once there was little control over the "look" of the brand there now is better visibility and greater control of the process.

BI Worldwide needs a partner that is accurate, timely and responsive. ASAP has been such a partner.

Education Evolving is a nonprofit company focused on improving public education.
They had an event in Boston and wanted to incorporate multiple components that included a backdrop display, variable customized name badges, tabletop signs, a banner, various easel signs and multiple versions of informational booklets.
