Since 1972, we have been on the forefront of vinyl and graphics installation.

Corporate Installations has been in the installation business for over 45 years. During our early years, our work was dominated by installations for gas station & fleet vehicle re-brandings, and branding equipment for major oil & gasoline companies in the United States.

In the early 1970s, vinyl installation was in its infancy and had not yet gained the reputation for being a reliable and cost-effective method for identifying your company or advertising your product or service. Working closely with 3M, Avery and other vinyl producers, Corporate Installations was instrumental in helping move the industry forward by developing the tools, standards and practices for installing pressure sensitive vinyl films.

In 1975, we saw a need for a national network of installation companies to help coordinate large graphic installation programs and set and maintain standards for the wider industry. This was the beginning of the Professional Decal Application Association (PDAA).

As the use and demand for decals and installations increased, Corporate Installations and the industry experienced rapid growth. Our services widened to include corporate graphics installation, and architectural and DiNoc film installations.

Corporate Installations Who We Are

Eventually, the administrative and logistical burdens eventually became too much for the PDAA, so in 2008 the PDAA asked the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) take over the operations of the Association. As of October 2018, the PDAA is 350 companies strong and growing.
In 2010, the founder of Corporate Installations, Mr. John Carthey was voted into the UASG-United Application Standards Group which over sees the Certification of 3M professional graphic installers. 3M’s certification program for installers ultimately became the standard bearer for the installation of 3M vinyls.

Today, we have greatly expanded beyond fleet and corporate graphic installations to retail environments, sport stadiums, building/architectural graphics, wraps and color changes to EPIC ART Projects. We continue to push innovation in every aspect of graphic installations. We look back on our past with pride while looking forward to the future with excitement and optimism.
