ArcticFX Graphics, the leader in custom sledwraps and snowmobile sticker kits, has its own version of Fashion Week in September every year. After months of studying trends and then designing, the AFX Top Ten sledwrap concepts are released on the website and featured on their Facebook page, in plenty of time before the start of the new 2014-2015 snow riding season.
“Having one of your own designs chosen for our release is a big deal,” said designer and AFX Marketing Director Bryan Flinker. “We design all year, and the competition here is friendly but fierce. I see potential sledwrap and sticker kit designs every day, and I snap pictures with my cell phone and store them. At some point I’ll review all such photos, and start to pull elements out, and pull together a new wrap concept as it would need to be to fit a snowmobile. In August we all sit down and start to review each other’s work. Our focus is quality, not quantity. We discuss and debate, then ultimately decide which ten will be this year’s spread of new AFX custom designs. As soon as a new design is released, it can be purchased.”
Although ArcticFX Graphics began as an online company offering set design colorways, founder and company president Jordan Yankee soon learned that riders and sports enthusiasts in general tend to have strong ideas about outfitting their rides. “Probably because I ride myself, I was not surprised that our buyers would contact us to ask if they could get a certain design, but in totally different color schemes,” Jordan Yankee recalled. “That’s what has led us to creating our proprietary app called SledWrapR™. We tried to think of every possible angle we enjoy when designing, and to make custom designing equally as enjoyable for our customers. Our customers can buy a design from us “as is” without even establishing an account. But if you want to make your sledwrap truly unique, you can sign in and create one from the ground up with SledWrapR™. I don’t know of another website that offers that ability to the power sports community.” Another service available at AFX is custom sledwrap design that can incorporate local logos and/or team colors for multiple sleds.
Now that all the ten new designs have been released, October, November and December will be busy fulfillment months for ArcticFX Graphics. As the snow gets deeper, more and more snowmobile riders will head to the back country. There will, of course, be those unexpected encounters with trees and boulders. Since all purchases and customer designs are kept on file, if a rider needs to replace decoration on a side panel or a hood after some snowmobile body work, ordering that particular piece of replacement graphics is easily done.
“Our mission is to make memorable art for your sled,” affirmed Jordan Yankee, “and to give our customers the ability to take our art and make it yours with SledWrapR™. We have fun with the process of creating the designs and producing them but even more so hearing back from our fellow power sports lovers of how great their rides look!”
