Reception Area Signs

Mighty Sign Maker lobby dimensional letters on wall

Rebranding, All Over the USA

By | Inside Signs, Interior Signs, Lobby Signs, Reception Area Signs

When Astadia needed to rebrand five locations with new lobby signs they called The Mighty Sign Makers for rebranding help.  With just a single point of contact, our client was able to complete sign projects in Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Jacksonville, FL; Raleigh, NC; and Nashua, NH. This meant that our client’s marketing team could stay focused on the needs of their customers instead of all the details involved in coordinating a lobby sign project in each location separately.  Specialty Graphic Solutions fabricated, shipped and installed five great lobby signs. This ensured a consistent and high-quality brand image is conveyed in all of their US offices.  Ordering and installing new signage, as part of a company rebranding, is often one of the last priorities.  Corporations with multiple locations nationally or internationally either have an in-house design department or they use a separate design company.  What they don’t have is production and installation capabilities.  That is where we come in.

The lobby signs they designed all feature a brushed metal panel with raised letters and the logo that welcome clients and employees alike to the Astadia offices. The new logo represents the direction of the company and the future it envisions for clients. Astadia’s CEO, Rebecca Rogers Tijerino, explained the colorful design as such: “The triangle symbolizes creativity; the delicate combination of colors is the powerful combination of ideas and skills; the peak points to the cloud, where technology and our aspirations lie; and its shape resembles an ‘A’ for Astadia.”

At Specialty Graphic Solution, we make it easy to create signs for multiple locations. We take care of all the details for you – including arrangements for local installers to ensure your new signs are displayed professionally in each unique location.  It was exciting to work with Astadia as their company starts this new chapter. The company specializes in streamlining and improving data resources for businesses so they can function better and grow.

We will help you Get Noticed when rebranding, lobby signs, reception signs, corporate values and core belief displays and other indoor signage.  The Mighty Sign makers also produce excellent building signs, vehicle graphics, fleet graphics, trade show displays, window graphics, event signage, wall murals and more.

Reception Area Sign for Biggs Insurance in Vancouver!

By | Lobby Signs, Reception Area Signs | No Comments

Is there any industry more competitive than the insurance industry? You can just smell the desperation dripping from that long-lost-and-forgotten high school acquaintance as they run into you at the Wine and Jazz Festival or other events and promptly start asking about whether you have life insurance.

Smart insurance agencies don’t need to rely on awkward “natural marketing.” They realize that branding is the key to sales success. If your insurance company’s name is ingrained in people’s heads, then you’re the one they’ll contact when they need homeowner’s insurance. Biggs’ Insurance Services is well aware of this, so they contacted the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphic Solutions for reception area signs for insurance agencies in Vancouver, WA.

What’s the Biggs Deal?

No, Biggs Insurance Services isn’t the insurance company started by American Pie star Jason Biggs after they stopped making straight-to-DVD sequels. They go back much further than that. In 1935, two brothers founded The Whitfield Company real estate and insurance agency. Don Biggs purchased the company in the ‘50s and gave it his name. Now, from the corporate office on Main Street in Vancouver, they offer auto insurance, homeowner’s insurance, surety bonds, risk management services, life insurance, and much more.

When a business that does such a good job of keeping local individuals and businesses from facing financial disaster came to us for lobby signs for insurance agencies in Vancouver, WA, we were glad to be of assistance. They have a nice dimensional letter sign on the exterior of their building, but they wanted a way to welcome clients into their reception area. We knew just what to do.

We Had Biggs Ideas

We met with Biggs to discuss their ideas for the project, and so we could take a closer look at their venue. They had a big, blank focal wall that would look rather nice adorned with a lobby sign. Based on their vision, budget, and branding, we came up with an art proof of what their finished sign could look like. They loved it, so we started fabricating it.

We started with a simple white panel and added cut vinyl graphics that perfectly matched Biggs’ branding. It’s important to have your marketing materials match if you want to maintain brand consistency. It’s like branding someone’s brain with your company’s logo: they can’t help but think of you when they need your services.

Once the piece was ready, we worked with Biggs’ schedule to install the markers when they weren’t trying to conduct big business deals. We mounted the sign with standoffs so it looks like it floats off the wall. In the end, we had another satisfied client.

3 Examples of Logo Lobby Signs You Can Have Too!

By | Lobby Signs, Reception Area Signs

3 Ways to use your Logo in your Lobby

Today, we’re going to look at some lobby signs. However, these are no ordinary lobby signs. We don’t make ordinary signs at Specialty Graphics Solutions. In fact, if you were to come into our shop and ask for an ordinary sign, we’d send you packing! Well, maybe not. We’re a business after all, and we try to keep all of our customers happy regardless of how ordinary their signage request is. Anyway, without further hypotheticals, let’s look at some excellent examples of logo lobby signs in Vancouver, WA.

PhD Labs Shows off Its Innovative Edge with Brushed Aluminum

PhD Labs prides themselves on being passionate about their work. This is something the mighty sign makers at SGS definitely appreciate. They haven’t been around for long, which tells clients one of two things: their business will likely experience hiccups and have trouble completing work, or they’ll demonstrate passionate exuberance as they try to make a name for themselves. We witnessed firsthand that it’s the latter.

To really drive this home, we recommended an innovative brushed aluminum laminate sign. Each of the features of their logo, including the intricate boiling flask, was routed out of plastic. We then applied a thin layer of real aluminum. We then installed the new marker for maximum impact. Now, their lobby sign projects professionalism and that they’re here to stay. They loved it so much they posted about it on Instagram!

Voxel Farm’s Branding Jumps out at You with Standoff Mounting

Voxel Farm is another innovative business that wanted their logo lobby sign to represent their company culture. We recommended using affordable plastic letters painted to match their branding. They thought that was a pretty smart idea. As with the above markers, we routed each of the elements of the logo. We then carefully matched their corporate colors to keep their branding consistent. When installation time came around, we used spacers for an off the wall look. This creates a fancy play of light and shadows that really catches the eye.

Visicom Media Keeps It Classy with Dimensional Letters

By now, you probably notice a theme with the lobby signs we’re talking about today. They’re all affordable, feature dimensional letters, are mounted with spacers, and they’re all really awesome. The marker we produced for Visicom Media is no exception. It’s made of the same materials as the Voxel Farm sign, but take a moment to gaze in wide-eyed wonderment at how we were able to perfectly capture the contours of the V logo.

We can do all of the above and more for your organization. When you call us up for logo lobby signs in Vancouver, WA, we listen closely to your vision for the project. We then make recommendations based on your budget. If you’re a high roller, we’ll recommend metal signage because metal looks great and lasts forever. Or, if you want to keep your costs down, sign foam or vinyl graphics might be best for you.

We can conjecture all day about what materials are best for your enterprise, but the best way to find out for sure is to contact our mighty sign makers today for a free consultation!

Custom Interior Lobby Signs Shine for Vesta Hospitality

By | Interior Signs, Lobby Signs, Reception Area Signs

Corporate Office Signs

When Vesta Hospitality moved into new corporate offices they knew they needed a great corporate office sign lobby sign that would convey both the company image and leadership’s commitment to excellence for every one of its hotel projects.

We designed a classic dimensional letter sign using the company’s logo to be featured above the new reception desk.  Routed and painted PVC letters spell out Vesta Hospitality in two different sizes so that Vesta is the most prominent word in the sign.  The logo’s stylized circle was created with a brushed aluminum finish.  All of the individual letters and shapes were mounted on studs or directly to the wall to create 3 different variations in height off the wall – small detail that makes for a big impact.

Vesta leaders also wanted nameplates outside each executive team member’s office.  Instead of using standard nameplates, we used the circle in the Vesta logo to make unique, custom nameplates.  Using the same brushed aluminum finish featured on the lobby sign, we created one-of-a-kind nameplate bases and simply used cut vinyl for the individual names.

Vesta Hospitality

Vesta Hospitality has impressive new corporate offices.  But more importantly, Vesta brings a dynamic energy to hospitality and hotel management and offers a complete range of services including project funding, hotel management, hotel development and purchasing.

Whether you are looking to create new signs for a new location or update existing lobby signs and nameplates, we’re the sign company that can help you find a solution for your unique needs and corporate office signs.  Want to talk to us?
