Local, woman-owned tradeshow shipping company commissions Marvel comic book artist for their 25th anniversary logo and commemorative comic book page
Just in time for Comic-Con San Diego, Transit Air Cargo partners with non-profit organization Hero Initiative, which supports comic book creators in need
Transit Air Cargo ships trade show freight all over the world, and the San Diego Comic-Con was no exception. 73,803 pounds of freight was delivered by Transit Air Cargo to this popular event. With their 25th anniversary around the corner the shipping experts (and major comic book fanatics) decided that a souped-up logo and comic page depicting Transit Air Cargo’s mission, along with the real life employees cartooned into the comic page would be a unique gift for their hard work. It would boost employee spirit and morale, since the owner’s passing five years ago. His wife has taken over since then and the company still maintains their commitment to first class trade show shipping services.
They contacted one of their customers, Jim McLauchlin, founder and president of the Hero Initiative who linked them up with the iconic Christopher Ivy who had in years past done comic book covers for Marvel, such as Wolverine and Daredevil. Working with Chris in itself was a memory that Transit Air Cargo will brag about in the many years to come. He is an amazing artist that brings to the table a talented wealth of experience.
The commissioned logo and comic book page will be used as a promotional item for customers and each employee will receive a framed copy of the artwork at the 25th anniversary celebration this November.
Located in Santa Ana, California, Transit Air Cargo has been providing on-time transportation and logistics services worldwide with a unique focus and specialty in the handling of trade show exhibits and specialty products. Staff is trained to handle the complexities of trade show and special event shipments.
Transit Air Cargo is a long established company with a youthful enthusiasm for what they do. To find out more about all of their services you may follow them on Instagram http://instagram.com/transitaircargo and Facebook http://www.facebook.transitaircargo.
The Hero Initiative (formerly known as A.C.T.O.R., A Commitment to Our Roots) has had the good fortune to grant over $500,000 to over 50 comic book veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today. “It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment,” Jim McLauchlin.
