Mark Guglielmo Reviews the
San Diego Padres' Wall Padding Project
"Prior to the commencement of the 2012 Major League Baseball season, the San Diego Padres contracted the services of Sports Venue Padding in an effort to improve the overall appearance of Petco Park's outfield wall and our ability to display advertising in a visually attractive manner.
Troy Robinson and Rob Aylesworth of Sports Venue Padding met with us on several occasions to discuss our needs, introduced and explained their digital system for outfield wall displays, took measurements and digital images of our facility in an effort to deliver a thorough proposal for services. After reviewing SVP's proposal, we were impressed with their level of detail and accuracy, the technology to be implemented, the manner in which our outfield wall pads were transformed and modified to provide a clean and uniform appearance, and their pricing structure. Needless to say, Sports Venue Padding was awarded the contract.
Our positive impressions continued as Troy and Rob's team began to execute the scope of services. More measurements were taken to ensure all were exact and concise. We were provided a construction schedule that was precisely followed. Their teams developed great working relationships with our marketing team to procure sponsorship images and worked with our groundskeeping team as they began pre-season playing field preparations. SVP exhibited great flexibility and a willingness to do whatever it took to complete the job right to our satisfaction. I, along with Senior Management, was very pleased and impressed with the final results and intend to use Sports Venue Padding on other projects.
I strongly recommend you provide Sports Venue Padding full consideration if it is your objective to improve the appearance of your padded walls or the manner in which advertising is displayed on outfield walls."

Brad Pittman Reviews the
Wichita State University Field Padding Project
"Sports Venue Padding won the bid for removal and replacement of custom field padding for Eck Field at Wichita State University. After the bid award was announced, we began discussions with Sports Venue Padding about the project. During these discussions, Sports Venue Padding suggested improvements that were not part of the initial bid, such as upgraded vinyl to include a five-year warranty, integrated digital printing, and a custom welded home run line. Sports Venue Padding provided samples of the vinyl, printing, and welding, and we were very impressed with the improvements.
Prior to fabrication, Sports Venue Padding sent a measurement team to our facility for a discussion with our team and to take detailed measurements. During the field visit, Sports Venue Padding noted areas that could have custom solutions that were not part of the original bid (and were included at no additional cost to us), such as our baseline gates. The measurements taken were used by Sports Venue Padding engineers to create CAD drawings prior to pad fabrication to include custom gate pads, home run line/black stripe placement, and all team logos/distance markers.
After the field visit, we worked with Sports Venue Padding on a detailed project schedule to include time for removal/disposal of existing pads, time to replace our outfield fence, and time to coordinate the installation of the pads prior to the start of the school year. Sports Venue Padding did an excellent job of communicating with us, listening to our needs, and delivering a final product above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend selecting Sports Venue Padding for your field padding projects to ensure your field exceeds all industry standards for safety, as well as, providing a beautiful look with a very durable product."

Project Name: Perry Park Skatepark
Project Location: Redondo Beach
"I could have ordered an off the shelf pad and hoped for the best. Instead I was lucky enough to find these folks. They made us a custom pad for a flag pole that sits in the middle of a skate feature. One of my biggest concerns was it getting stolen (because it's a public park). They recommended a lockable zipper. We installed it yesterday and not only does it fit perfectly it has a fricken keyed locking zipper!!! Amazing!! Sports Venue Padding's attention to detail and customer service sets the bar really high. Thank you SVP!!'

Cesar Sanchez Reviews the Angels' Digital Printing & Wall Padding Project
"As manager of the inventory for all sponsorship sales at the Angels, I made sure to select signage and print suppliers that would present superior quality of our sponsor ads and at a hard cost that was competitive and cost-effective. I found exceptional quality at SVP by Artistic Coverings with their ability to digitally print our advertiser's message directly onto our outfield and baseline walls. The presentation was amazing compared to the decals we had used in previous years. The brilliant clear images looked as brand new at the end of the season as they did on the day the ads were installed. I no longer experienced the cracking, peeling, or tearing that we had been dealing with year after year with decals. We worked together with our facility operations group to provide the financial resources needed to replace worn-out padding so that our new ads for the season could be printed on the wall padding or dug-out padding covers. SVP was there to install the ads when we needed them on our schedule and did an incredible job in the performance of their work. I would highly recommend this new digital printing process and wall padding construction from SVP to any sports team who wants to greatly enhance their venue."
