a giant corkscrew addition

In May, I had mentioned how the Barnes corkscrew logo we use for the wine shop, suddenly appeared on our back wall; the sunlight having been just right to project the image on the front window, all the way to the back of the shop.


We knew that we wanted to put something on the back wall, but it was pretty obvious that a corkscrew needed to go there.

So, over the course of a few weeks, I selected a patent drawing.  Then, after a little work with Illustrator, came up with what would reflect the patent selected, while still changing it to have the same Island Spirits vibe.

After then vectorizing the image, we sent it off to a company who take the digitized image and enlarge and produce it in vinyl.

We picked it up a week or so ago, and given it was two pieces that we would have to install ourselves, we walked through the process a couple of times, ensuring it was the right size, dimensions, etc.

The other morning, after a couple cups of coffee we headed to the shop, and began the process of installing a 5 foot tall corkscrew on the back wall.

As it happened, it turned out pretty well.  And, thus far, it has been met with lots of oohs, ahhs, and corkscrew appreciation.


A nice addition to the shop!
