On October 27th, some of the nation’s leading life sciences executives, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and researchers will be found at the 2010 Indiana Life Sciences Summit. And Miles POP will be right there with them.
As one of Indiana’s leading WBE certified Green Power printers, Miles POP is pleased to support the annual Indiana Life Sciences Summit this fall. As a sponsor of the event, we printed bright eco-friendly event signage and event binders for each participant.
Indiana has transformed itself into a hub for technology and life sciences through university, financial, corporate and medical support. Many Indiana universities, such as IU and Purdue, now offer state of the art life science degrees. Indiana also has a number of leading corporations that help support this growing and important field.
The Indiana Life Sciences Summit will discuss the changing face of the life sciences industries at a time of healthcare reform and economic uncertainty. The Summit will feature leaders from Indianapolis’ own BioCrossroads, Biomet, WellPoint, Medco, 5AM Ventures, OrbiMed Advisors, BioEnterprise, and Marcadia. Held at the Westin of Indianapolis, the event is hosted by BioCrossroads, with a reception co-hosted by Eli Lilly and Cook Medical.
At Miles POP, we keep good company! We enjoy being able to offer support to our city and state by contributing to organizations important to the growth of science, technology, business, women in business, and leadership across Indiana.
Miles POP was recently presented an interesting opportunity when one of the world’s best-known advertising agencies asked us to provide a turn-key commercial printing solution for a carpeting client.
The Shaw Carpeting “sample case” was a creative project involving several folded room configuration boards, which needed to be coated to resist scratching. The kit also contained a series of decal sheets printed to precisely matched carpet colors. These decals would stick to the room configuration boards to give a visual representation of what the carpet would look like if installed in that room. Finally, the entire kit needed to be housed in an attractive case that would stand up to travel.
After several business trips and multiple sample mock ups, Miles was ready to print the Shaw Carpeting sample kit. It was indeed a complicated project. But when we broke the project down into its fundamentals and researched best practices, we knew we could get the job done right:
- Custom printing with heavy varnish on 20” x 13” boards
- UV printing with gloss UV coating
- Matching precise colors on multiple decals
- Printing and assembly of a heavy “sample kit” case
We did our homework, worked overtime to get the job done, and were rewarded with a fruitful end result: a beautifully printed job and a very grateful client.

Static on the radio? Not good. Static from your boss? Difficult. Static cling on your laundry? Embarrassing. But static cling on your windows? An excellent marketing tool!
Static cling window decals are a simple, but often overlooked vehicle to bring attention to your product, school, business or organization. And they are becoming an increasingly popular product.
One of the huge benefits of the static cling decal is that it is removable and repositionable. They are a little tricky to print, however, unless you are a printer like Miles POP, who specializes in printing on plastics.
Miles prints static cling window decals for:
- Parking Passes
- Program & Cause Support
- Product promotion
- School and organization memberships
Both are reverse printed so the image will be visible through the window when in place. Miles POP has printed static cling decals for use on mirrors, glass, plastics, metals, and many other materials. And because they are light, flexible and slim, they are very easy to mail.
Next time you are considering a way to bring attention to your brand, consider static cling decals from Miles POP – your Indianapolis certified WBE & minority owned printer — and an expert in printing on plastic.Tweet
