Here is an image of both the semi-trailer and staff sleeper ("BIG RIG") wrap concept.  See more

THE STORY:

In an average summer, the Bluecoats will travel 12,000 miles in order to perform 35 times in at least 20 different states across the USA. Not only do we carry 200 people (performers, staff and volunteers) each day in five separate vehicles, but we transport well over 100 musical instruments, plus costumes, props, and sound equipment in our 53’ equipment trailer. We also transport a 48’ mobile kitchen trailer and enough food to feed those 200 people four hot meals a day.

Without our fleet of vehicles, we simply would not be able to effectively operate as a touring organization. In addition to serving a vital function to our operations every year, our vehicles are traveling billboards. Each summer, hundreds of thousands of people around the country will pass us on the road, or see us parked at a housing site or performance venue. They will see “BLUECOATS” in large letters and also learn that we represent our home town of Canton, Ohio. Hopefully a portion of those will see our web address, then visit our website to learn more about what we do and how we provide amazing experiences for young people.

Our vehicle wraps are not only important to the maintenance and upkeep of our vehicles, they are essential to effectively serving as our traveling billboards. Our equipment trailer wrap was new in 2007, and our food trailer wrap was new in 2008. They are both in dire need of replacement, and the “BIG RIG” sleeper coach we purchased in 2015 for our volunteers and admin team also needs a wrap in order for it to match the look of trailers - making for a dynamic impression as we tour each summer.

You can view the design concept here.

It’s a clean, yet aggressive design that will make a statement. All the lettering will be silver, giving each vehicle an amazing shine and presence. The cost for three new wraps is $25,000, and YOUR HELP can go along toward helping us make this purchase a reality. Any donation you can make will make a significant difference and our goal for this campaign is only $12,000, but if 250 people each donate $100, we can pay for the wraps in full! Please consider making a gift toward our wraps in our 2016 “GIFT WRAP” campaign today in order to give us the opportunity to make a strong impression on each person that sees our vehicles this summer, furthering exposing our organization (and the fine work we do) to the world.
