We were approached by VisitMyrtleBeach.com, a travel agency in Myrtle Beach, S.C. and official partner to the Big South Championships, to create appreciation gifts for representatives of the schools participating in the championship games.

Since Myrtle Beach’s three-year agreement to host the Big South Championship in 2013, the event has been commemorated by a sand sculpture using up to 150 tons of sand. This incredible sand sculpture served as the inspiration for our creative team.

Using the LAYR 3D Content Creation platform, we created a replica of the sand sculpture to be printed in full color. Our production team then attached the printed replica to a plaque adorned with a brass name plate representing each school.

We produced 30 appreciation gifts that were given to the presidents and athletic directors of the 15 participating schools. They were well received and brought repeat business from VisitMyrtleBeach.com. The travel agency made a bulk photo relief order a few months later by utilizing the 3D Quote Engine on zverse.com.
