The Plaid Nation Tour officially kicked off today. They paid us a visit in Dearborn, Michigan, in addition to heading to downtown Detroit to witness some of the bright spots of opportunity among the distressed neighborhoods that most people associate with the city these days.
In final preparation for the tour, the crew at Plaid Nation took their Ford Flex to Competition Graphics to get the unique vehicle wrap created and applied. There’s no losing this Flex in the parking lot. Check out the tips and information that Competition Graphics offers in this video.
Plaid Nation is your chance to see the latest social media tools in action and get insight into how some of the most innovative brands are using social media to reach audiences.
