Graphical Wraps Beautify Naperville

Jim Nagy of Cutting Edge Graphics normally designs signs and wraps racecars, but the city recently approached him for a beautification project – wrapping a rusty old signal box with a high-resolution image of the city.

“Well there are a lot of neat things about this city, a lot of scenes that can be duplicated on these projects that can let people who are from out of town or even people who are local see some of the earmarks that we have here in Naperville,” said Jim Nagy, Vice President of Cutting Edge Graphics.

The box now features a picture of the paddleboats on Quarry Lake near the Naperville Riverwalk.

This first box is just a prototype, but plans may be brought before the city to beautify more.

“There are a lot of great things in this town and it’s just a way to bring some of those images to people walking the streets,” said Nagy.

The signal box is located at the corner of river road and Aurora Avenue, near the police station.
