1966: Le Mans Style Start
The crowd has taken over the circuit, the cars are lined up along the pits and the start is imminent. The 1966 edition of the race will make a lot of ink flow, with a strong American presence, but above all by an innovative finish: Henry Ford plans to offer the coronation to two winners. Drawing on an article of the regulations never used before, the decision-makers in the city decided otherwise.

Plotter equipment: SureColor P9000 (max width: 110cm) and SureCOlor P20000 (max width: 160cm)
The finish :
The paper is then glued using a double-sided PH neutral (acid-free) adhesive for better conservation over time, on a DILITE 2mm dibon plate with the following characteristics:
- Thickness : 2mm
- Aluminium foil / Polyethylene / Aluminium foil
- Aluminium slice / black / aluminium
- Fire rated M1
The whole thing is then covered with an American matt lacquered or solid wood box, depending on the colour. They are made to measure for each order by Nielsen. All made in France.
DIRECT PRINTING ON PLEXI
Printing directly onto a 3 mm thick Plexiglas (or extruded PMMA) sheet. The printing technique is no longer inkjet but UV ink. This technique is ideal for printing on rigid substrates and thus allows the creation of very resistant and very large format prints.
The inks deposited on the surface of the material are instantly dried and hardened with ultraviolet light, guaranteeing the photo board exceptional resistance. It is therefore an ideal and original technique both for decoration and for exhibitions intended to face difficult conditions, outdoors for example.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_single_image border_color="grey" img_link_target="_self" image="1319"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
