Most artwork (shown here) was completed in just 2-3 days, which includes the (12 ft.) center logo,
Two (4 ft.) areas of lettering on the baselines at the ends of the court.
Two (3 ft.) lettering or artwork on the sidelines, facing the bleachers.
I will work with any flooring contractor
or school's maintenance department of your choice!
I can also supply you with a reputable and dependable flooring contractor.
I'll also paint spectacular school mascot wall murals, on the surrounding walls of your gymnasium!
... inside and on the exterior walls.
Here's how it works:
When working on a newly prepared floor, the gym floor design or artwork is painted
after the second seal coat and before the final coats are applied by your maintenance department or flooring contractor.
When working on a previous finished floor, the specified areas are scuffed and prepared. The graphics are rendered on top. Then when completely dry (usually two or three days),
a final coat of finish is applied over the artwork.
If you'd like to change or update your existing center court logo, we can do that too!
I'll scuff over the area, and paint the new design over top of the existing one.
Then apply a seal coat of floor finish over the artwork. I'll work within your budget!
I can paint your school mascot logo
and floor graphics
over a previous finished floor!
It's a false assumption that the entire floor has to be re-surfaced.
My method will add additional life to your existing floor. It's as if your adding an extra seal coat to the re-painted areas.
We can even change the color of your existing 3 or 4 borders of the floor and or game lines. Which is
far less expensive than re-surfacing the entire floor.
This process takes
just 3- 4 days to complete! You can have a new logo or graphics painted over the weekend!
Your sports court will be back in full operation on Monday morning.
(You can see multiple examples of this technique, in our photo gallery.)
What makes a school unique, is it's logo and mascot!
Imagine having a fierce looking air brushed and life-like tiger or wildcat, leaping out
of the center of your gymnasium floor, intimidating the opposing team's best players.
How about an awesome looking 16 foot, bald eagle, hawk or blue jay soaring out from your court.
Imagine a gleaming gothic knight or barbarian, air brushed with brilliant highlights and intense
shadows with multiple tones, shadows and bright highlights. Can you see him standing proud and strong in the center of your gymnasium? Or
a custom painted indian brave, with soft fluffy feathers and 3-dimensional
beads, laced around his neck.
These custom painted graphics become actual works of art when we're finished. All authentic, and unique to your school only!
Artwork and graphics are not decals stuck to the floor. Or cut-out stencils that are filled in with one or two colors of paint.
My gym floor logo designs are hand painted and enhanced with amazing air brush effects! They are painted
Athletic Directors, and Superintendent of schools are welcome to browse our site!
