How Disney Does Bus Wraps

Ever wonder how Disney gets those designs on their buses?  Disney finds professional  sign makers to create designs for the bus. This technique is called bus wrapping. It has been used back to the early 20th century in order to advertise businesses. Did you know that Disney owns over 260 buses at Disney World? Also, one bus estimates to travel about 52,000 miles a year.
To create a bus wrap you simply just add a special film design over the bus. It only takes a few hours to complete a full bus wrap. The two bus wraps that you see here was created by one of the Signworld owners. Ken Kindt is the founder of this company which he teaches his team on how to create amazing bus wraps like these.

You can see more sign designs and read more about him at https://plus.google.com/111134005849390623197
