We Wrap Graphics in Zanesville, Ohio Helps Local Schools – Zanesville Times Recorder | Episode Movies

ZANESVILLE — Zanesville High School graduate Anthony Smith and his brother Caleb, who attended Zanesville City Schools through high school, are giving back to the schools that helped shape them.

Smith’s Zanesville-based company, We Wrap Graphics, is currently installing security wraps on the district’s campus buildings. They work with the district security department.

The two-phase plan was held up due to a product backlog, but is expected to be completed in the next two weeks, Smith said. He played football for the Blue Devils under former coach Chad Grandstaff before earning a scholarship to Ohio Dominican.

He started the business in 2021 by renovating the basketball weight room at ZHS in honor of longtime coach Scott Aronhalt, one of his first major projects. They have since branched out into wrapping vehicles and creating decorative signs and banners for gyms, among other things.

The security project with Zanesville and the film and perforation installation is similar to installing vinyl for wraps, Smith said. You outsource the film through a supplier.

“Just based on my experience installing vinyl, it’s pretty easy for me to install the sheeting,” Smith said. “It requires experience (to learn).”

Fred Curry, a former Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office detective who now serves as an attendance officer, security officer and court liaison for Zanesville City Schools, said in a statement that the district’s security measure was prompted in part by recurring school shootings across the country.

He approached We Wrap for the project.

“We live in a world that unfortunately includes a small segment of cowardly individuals who go into schools to harm innocent children,” Curry said. “That kind of scenario keeps a lot of us up at night. The armed security team, administrators, teachers and other staff at Zanesville City Schools are committed to protecting our students.”
