An efficient integration of product development capabilities, verification and advanced manufacturing methods ensure that our products will be built to last, and that's really important when you're out on the road in your RV."
Designing a Custom RV Sticker Sheet
To give an added value to their customers, Icon printed up a custom RV sticker set that's a base map of the United States with peel off states featuring custom illustrations. This particular project features a unique use of StickerGiant's sticker sheet product plus our clear sticker product, with a total of four 7 x 14 stickers coming together to make one beautiful map.
To create the base map, there are two clear stickers that fit together, and then the peel off state stickers that fill in the the United States map are on two separate glossy die cut sheets. This overall use of a clear base map and die cut stickers really maximizes the design area and sticker real estate and allows for an RV enthusiast to apply easily and have . "I love to do illustrations, and this project provide a unique challenge to fit everything together on the map," says Liliana, graphic designer at Icon. "These are all custom illustrations, so we had come up with a concept and actually it was a bit hard to just come up with one or two elements per state because some states are so interesting."
