PEACE ON EARTH

We used our EPS (expanded polystyrene) foam for this year’s Holiday Remembrance. The outside surfaces, with the letter cut-outs, used 2pcf (pounds per cubic foot) material; the foam core is 1pcf with metalized film heat-laminated to both surfaces. One of the metalized films was flood-coated to provide the blue color behind the letters; the other side was left as plain silver.

Each of the three pieces was precision-cut on a water-jet machine and then carefully hand-glued together. To complete the assembly, we included the encapsulated globe, with our logo on the bottom, to remind everyone that many areas of the world do not share the peace and benefits that we take for granted. In today’s world, we cannot forget how close we are, despite our geographical separation.
