Create over 15,000 dimensional hanging bats on a tight budget in less than 3 days.
With less than a couple of days to design and produce over 15,000 bats, we had to use a readily available material and use an automated process. We came up with a simple bat design that would use black rigid vinyl and only need to utilize a single die-cutter.
To make the bat multi-dimensional, we crease-scored the “spine” of the bat so the wings would dip, while through-cutting the perimeter with a steel rule die. This all happened in one die-cutting impress, using a single press, and fitting many parts onto one master sheet. This manufacturing process was essential for achieving success since the typical digital CAD drag-knife and scoring wheels would not have been able to crease the bat “spine” adequately.
