Billboards & Scoreboards:

Formerly known as Ralph Wilson Stadium, the Buffalo Bills revealed this season that their stadium would be rebranded as New Era Field. The back of the 34' H x 158' W scoreboard is framed by wind-permeable AdMesh material.

Below, Britten's installation crew uses a series of lifts to simultanously hoist this 18' H x 184' W Mesh banner on the back of the grand stands.

Why Time Off is Important

by Britten HR 09/02/2016

Feeling like a vacation would do you good? I’m sure most of us can relate, but as it turns out, actually taking that vacation is easier said than done for a lot of Americans. According to The Guardian, in 2014, “the number of unused vacation days in the US reached a 40-year high. Researchers at Oxford Economics hired by the US Travel Association put the numbers at about 169m days, equivalent to $52.4bn in lost benefits.”

by Britten HR 08/05/2016

Often a mere destination, we at Britten have made Northern Michigan our home. We feel fortunate to call one of the most beautiful regions in America our permanent residence. There are a lot of reasons to love Northern Michigan,—like for instance, Britten Studios is located here!—but here are a few specifics as to what makes it so awesome!

Spectacular Stadium Graphics:

In downtown Detroit, the towering entrance graphic above Ford Field provides a dramatic statement as enthusiastic Lions fans make their way into the stadium.

Almost 8,000 square feet of decal is applied to the glass each year!

While we love working on big projects all across the country, Summer is truly a special time here in northern Michigan and we'd like to showcase a couple of recent projects from right here in our own backyard!

We're always happy to have our customers come visit, too. Please drop us a line if you'll be in the area!


The 90th Annual National Cherry Festival:

Another Cherry Festival is in the books, and over half a million people  visited the Grand Traverse region in the first eight days of July. With so much to see and do, Britten was on hand to add some large format color to go with the Fireworks and Blue Angels air shows, the parades and the concerts, the pie eating contests, and everything in between.

Attendees of the Festival passed underneath the magnificent entrance archway that marked the entrance to the open space, and light pole banners could be seen all along Grand Traverse bay. Keeping pedestrians and motorists safe were the long runs of fence scrim on either side of Grandview Parkway.


Defeating Mother Nature

You can’t always avoid the wrath of Mother Nature.

Screen Printing: A Primer

by Britten Studios 06/20/2016

We at Britten know that the dating world can oftentimes feel confusing, humbling, and occasionally downright backward. We would like to offer a little bit of advice that has always helped us in the past. Good rapport starts with good conversation and good conversation starts with print. Few things are more interesting than ink and the various methods that a person can apply it. Ask any of our spouses. Ink just works. 

Refresh your Brand: Do it Now

by Rachel Tompkins 06/13/2016

In their heart of hearts, people believe that things will and should get better. Perhaps we’ve become spoiled by a lifetime of ever-improving technology, or maybe we all secretly accept the idea that things get easier for each successive generation.

Campus Light Pole Banners:

At the end of the collegiate year, many graduating students are attending commencement ceremonies. And a great way to build school pride is with a well crafted banner program seen everywhere across campus.

Your light pole banners can be switched out in the fall to greet incoming students with a back-to-school campaign, or rebranded to increase attendance at sporting events in the upcoming semester!


The Makeover: Office Edition

by Britten Studios 06/06/2016

Picture yourself about to step into your office. Coffee in hand, you feel the slight chill of morning still clinging to your skin. The subdued jingling of keys enters the air as you unlock the door, your mind already organizing the daily priorities. You open the door and see, what most people see; familiar walls, familiar flooring, and decorations that you have learned to ignore.
