This year for the 10th Anniversary of Mini Takes the States, ThumbPrint was asked to create 13 wrap kits! Mini Takes the States is an annual event, in which Mini Cooper owners from across the country are invited to participate in a cross-country road trip with thousands of other Mini drivers. Some Mini owners decide to drive the entire 3,000 miles cross country, and others decide to tag along for just a day or two. Regardless, there are always more Minis than you can count that participate, with no two Minis looking the same. Every Mini has its own personal flare, and ThumbPrint was honored to help customize 13 different wrap kits for this event.
We at ThumbPrint love Mini Takes the States! It’s an event that’s unlike any other. Mini Takes the States attracts Mini Coopers of different years and models, and drivers from all walks of life. When there are thousands of Mini Coopers at the same place, you begin to notice how different people express their personalities through the way they customize their rides. At the event, you’ll see Minis with custom painted teeth on the grill, Minis with with giant fuzzy mustaches fastened to the front, Minis with incredible custom paint jobs and body work, and even your standard family 4-door Mini. However, the thing about the Mini community is that everyone has something about their Mini that makes it completely unique from the rest of them. Watching hundreds of them drive along the highway is great, as they all look different, but they’re all still Minis.
One of the main things that you will hear attendees say is that the community of Mini Takes the States feels like a family. The event has been described as a summer camp for adults who love Mini Coopers. Mini Takes the States not only unites people for the road trip, but also for a greater purpose. There is a small fee for entry, and a portion of every fee goes to the charity Feeding America®. Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, with over 200 food banks, 60,000 food pantries, and it provides service to over 46 million people nationwide. Participants of the event are encouraged to make donations when they can; so that collectively the event will raise a substantial amount of money for the charity. This year was a huge success, as the partnership between Mini Takes the States and Feeding America helped to raise enough money for over 1,000,000 meals!
The wraps we were asked to create were all customed designed and printed here at ThumbPrint. One of the things that we do best at ThumbPrint is achieving a solid understanding of our clients’ vision, to the point that their vision becomes our own. At Mini Takes the States, we know that a large part of its vision is shown in the uniqueness of every car that participates, which is why our wraps for the event were created to stand out, and attract attention. We’re sure that the wraps we created for the event will make the Minis sporting them unforgettable.
Mini Takes the States is one of the most unique events of the year, and it was amazing to be part of it. We at ThumbPrint love taking part in events like these. Mini Takes the States brings together car owners from all over the nation, and raises money to help feed people in a number of communities across the country. We hope to continue creating unique wraps for the event in the coming future, and we can’t wait to see how the event continues to grow!
