Neon Makes Transit Shelter POP for Out of Home Advertising

Good Out of Home Advertising creative gets people’s attention and sells product. But is there a way to create even more attention? Of course, just call the folks at Media Resources 3D Fabrication Department! When our client, Astral – Bell Media, asked if we could help CHUM FM’s transit advertising program generate even more attention we were all in. The bright idea – neon augmentation.


We looked at the new faux neon products, but they didn’t have as much pop as the real thing. Plus traditional neon has a certain cachet. Working with Astral Outdoor (a Bell Media property) we installed the neon augmented transit ads at 3 locations around Toronto. The POP could almost be heard!!

About Transit Shelter Out of Home Advertising

Often strategically located along busy streets in major metropolitan cities, a Transit Shelter can provide excellent exposure to pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Transit Shelters give consumers something to look at while they’re waiting for the bus, making them particularly effective for Out of Home advertising point-of-purchase and directional information.
  • Stationary ad space located along busy bus routes
  • Provides eye-level visibility to pedestrians and vehicular traffic in major cities
  • Targets specific audiences and reaches areas that other out-of-home advertising can’t go
  • Effective medium for point-of-purchase, ethnic or geographic marketing

Everyone’s drawn to our state-of-the-art 3D printer but as this example shows there’s more then 1 way to liven up a transit shelter. For examples of our previous transit shelter programs check out the projects shown below.

VISION3D Helps Kick Off the CFL Grey Cup | 3D Printing | 3D Fabrication

Earlier this fall the Canadian Football League asked Media Resources if we’d like to run a play at the 106th Grey Cup festivities. As an integrated sign services provider we put our entire team at their disposal: digital LED scoreboards, sign service & installation, grand format printing and 3D fabrication.

For this game our 3D (VISION3D) and installation divisions were selected to play. Our part of the game plan included 3D props ranging from a 6’ long football, giant CFL logo’d helmet, size 186 shoe, goal post, essentially everything in the picture but the players!

Object not as heavy as they appear

The process started with CNC carving out of EPS foam (3D printing not used for this project). Next came hard coating for durability (so the players could sit on the football). Hand airbrushing and vinyl graphics got the pieces ready for kick off. Then we lateraled to our installation and service team in Edmonton to build the walls and mount all the pieces — a Media Resources team effort!

While Media Resources scored big at the Grey Cup the final victory went to the Calgary Stampeders winning 27 to 16 over the Ottawa Redblacks. Congratulations Stampeders!!
