Working with people you know is just smart. When you do this, you can play to each other’s strengths and challenge one another to create something fabulous. Specialty Graphic Solutions is a strong believe in this. That is why we like to enlist the help of business partners to produce the best signage we possibly can. And, clients like Markee Valuations get to cash in on the benefits of our partnerships.
A Little About Markee Valuations
Located in downtown Vancouver, Markee Valuations is the brainchild of Laura Markee, a financial damages expert and business appraiser. We’re kind of unsure about what those titles actually mean, but we do know that Markee Valuations provides a bunch of valuable services to the local business community. They essentially help businesses figure out how much they’re worth.
When an enterprise that helps out Vancouver companies came to us for signage at their new location, we got right down to work. There was already an existing pole sign but it was in pretty rough shape. Markee wanted refurbished signs Vancouver WA clients would notice.
A “Marquee” Sign for Markee Valuations Is Born!
To update the pole sign, we worked closely with one of our favorite partners: Lori Reed of Reed Creative. Reed Creative is a graphic design studio that specializes in creating successful design solutions for customers of all sizes across the country. They have an extensive network of designers with more than fifteen years of professional experience. They’re just a pleasure to work with.
Once we had the logo design from Reed Creative, we needed to do a test print to make sure the colors were right on the money. We made slight adjustments to ensure the marker would match Markee’s other print materials. This is a must for consistent branding. You can judge how we did for yourself in the photo below. We then printed the design out with full color digital print graphics on intermediate vinyl with laminate. This was then mounted on 3mm aluminum composite panels.
Now, Markee wanted to keep their costs down, so we mounted the four new panels (one for each side of the sign) right over the face of the existing sign. In other words, we didn’t reinvent the wheel for this job. We just put some new tires on it. And, the bright blue from these new tires…err, I mean signs are recognizable for far away.
In the end, our client appraised it as a job well done!
