Vinyl Images Open House Celebrates 15 Years in Business

By Carmelo Turdo
Vinyl Images, producer of vehicle wraps, banners and related products and services, held their 15th Anniversary Open House at the company's Fenton, MO facility on Saturday.  The family business, headed by John Duever, Joe Duever, and Destiney Duever-Conley, have taken graphic arts to a new level.  From just a concept, Vinyl Images transforms ideas into stunning reality.  Vinyl Images wraps can be seen on fleet vehicles, race cars, monster trucks, food trucks, boats, banners, and countless other surfaces including the Blue Demon Pitts Special aircraft used by Patrick McAlee Airshows - ExtremeFlight.  McAlee's airshow plane has recently received a full ExtremeFlight logo wrap on the top wing and sponsor logo decals on the edges of the wings, easily visible during airshow performances.  The newly adorned Blue Demon will now arrive across the Midwest in style during the 2018 airshow season.  McAlee did have a booth at the Open House featuring his signature virtual reality airshow flight experience.  But since he couldn't land the plane in the parking lot, we have some views here of the new custom banner and the aircraft as seen recently at nearby Washington Regional Airport:

Patrick McAlee Airshows - ExtremeFlight and other customers of Vinyl Images brought their displays or vehicles to the Open House event, giving the community a chance to see the diversity of applications for this revolutionary technology.  Included among the exhibitors was an OH-58 Kiowa helicopter and McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II cockpit representing the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation (AAHF) Gateway Chapter.  Vinyl Images produced the signage now used at Creve Coeur Airport to direct visitors to the AAHF hangar.  

We have some more views of the Open House and other Vinyl Images customers represented including:

No one could miss the sights and sounds of the Streetfighterz Streetbike Freestyle Stunt Team demo and that priceless photobomb! 

The Aero Experience thanks Vinyl Images for their hospitality during our coverage of their Open House and their great work on Patrick McAlee's Blue Demon.   We highly recommend that our audience seek out Vinyl Images for their wrap, signage or decal projects.
