Push Thru Sign for Legacy 6

By | Export, Truck Lettering, Uncategorized, USDOT Lettering

Push thru signs use a solid piece of acrylic that is routed into letters then inserted into the sign face.  In this case, we used clear acrylic letters with a translucent green vinyl to give the sign the glow.  The number 6 in the logo is clear acrylic with a brushed aluminum laminate face.  This creates a halo-lit effect for just that element.  The sign itself is a lighted cabinet.  The led strip lights inside create a very even light distribution.  The face of the cabinet had the same letters routed out so the acrylic letters can ‘push thru’.

Legacy 6 Construction takes great pride in their logo and lighted push thru signs create a modern look in their office lobby.  The first impression some customers get is your business lobby.  A lighted lobby sign like the one here is unique and eye-catching.

These Office Signs Gave Qualident Dental Lab Something to Smile About!

By | Interior Signs, Lobby Signs | No Comments

You don’t need to have all of your teeth to know that lobby signs are a must when you’re relocating your business. You don’t even need to supply people with false teeth to know the importance of new office signs. Teeth are actually quite irrelevant to your signage needs. Unless, of course, you’re Qualident Dental Lab. They recently contacted the mighty sign makers at SGS for office signs Vancouver WA would remember.

What Does Qualident Do?

With a brand new location near Fort Vancouver High School, Qualident Dental Lab is a successful, fast growing business. As a full service dental laboratory, they specialize in providing high end dental appliances to dental practices. They aim to offer consistent top quality products, outstanding customer support, and fair prices. They supply dentures, partial frames, several types of crowns, and much more.

When such an upstanding company came to us for waiting room signs for Vancouver, WA, we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into this project. We’d worked with Qualident before to supply them with trade show displays and vehicle graphics. The Qualident team also kept us in the loop with plans to expand the enterprise. This company is SO good they simply had too much work for the facility to handle. When the time came to move to the new venue, we were right there to help make their brand shine bright in their new digs!

What the Mighty Sign Makers Did for Qualident

Qualident needed a lobby sign as well as directory signs for their event rooms. We designed the lobby marker to have an impact. We started with a 3mm thick brushed silver aluminum composite panel that measured eight feet wide by 37.5 inches high. We then perfectly rendered their logo in quarter inch thick PVC. The color matching of the beautiful turquoise color in the logo really stands out with the metallic silver and black. Finally, we installed the new marker with satin chrome standoff mounts to set it off from the wall.

In their new facility, Qualident has a conference room for smaller events along with a large seminar room for training their dental clients. They wanted an economical and easy way to post the names of their events by the meeting rooms. We had just the answer.

For the room signs, we began with ProSign System curved displays. We then inserted a printed header featuring Qualident’s branding into the top of the aluminum frame and installed the markers. Now, whenever there’s an event, they can simply print out the relevant information on an 8.5” by 11” sheet of paper using their standard desktop printer and copy paper. There are no special materials or equipment needed to get custom, professional messages any time they want.

We provide services to a broad range of industries that offer services both inside and outside of your mouth. We’ll work with your vision and budget to create the perfect solutions for your enterprise. If you’re ready to turn your office into a branding powerhouse, contact SGS today for a free consultation on waiting room signs for Vancouver, WA.

BPA “Powers Up” with New Interior Wayfinding Office Signs in Vancouver WA

By | Interior Signs, Wayfinding Signs | No Comments

When you’re expanding your business, it isn’t just about taking the ten employees you have crowded into a closet-sized office and distributing them throughout the building. There’s so much more that goes into it! The first thing that comes to mind is that you will also need to update signage to show visitors to your building where to go now that everything has moved around. BPA recognized this, so they contacted the mighty sign makers at Specialty Graphics Solutions for custom interior business signs for Vancouver, WA.

BPA? Isn’t That the Bad Stuff in Plastic Bottles?

Yes. Yes, it is. But, that acronym also stands for the much better for you and environmentally friendly Bonneville Power Administration. Though it’s part of the U.S. Department of Energy, BPA is a self-funded federal nonprofit agency based in the Pacific Northwest. It markets wholesale electrical power from a nonfederal nuclear plant, numerous other small nonfederal power plants, and 31 federal hydro projects in the Columbia River Basin.

When a federal agency needed us to supply them with wayfinding signs for Vancouver, WA, we were more than happy to help out. BPA didn’t contact us directly. Instead, we were contacted by the general contractor for the job, BnK Construction. We’d worked with BnK before on some trade show displays. They were familiar with the outstanding, above-and-beyond work our mighty sign makers produced. That’s why they came to us.

How We Helped out BPA

BPA recently expanded their administrative offices in Vancouver from just being a single tenant in a Class A space to taking over the whole building. They needed us to update the signage to reflect the change. Specifically, they wanted us to make a double sided sign out of two single sided signs as well as two brand new directional signs for Vancouver, WA.

The challenge for this job was fabricating markers that matched the already existing signs throughout the building. Our friendly professionals were up to the task. We first started with one-eighth of an inch thick black PVC and added antiqued metal laminate to the face.  This was all on a black metal backer. The color matched digital graphics were added directly to the antiqued laminate. Custom matte silver cabling and hardware was used to hang the double sided sign.

As you can see, the new signs fit in perfectly with the existing décor. In the end, BPA was ecstatic about their new markers.

Is There Any Possible Way We Could Do This for Your Business?

You’re in luck! We help companies who are expanding in their existing facilities or who are moving to a new place entirely or who just want to help visitors who have been lost in their building for years. We can perform a site survey to make our professional recommendations on what markers you’ll need. We’ll then work with your vision, goals, and budget to produce signs you’re proud of.

Are you ready to make your venue a more pleasant place to visit? If so, contact SGS today for a free consultation on interior signs!

What’s Next for Roofline Supply? A Lobby Sign of Course!

By | Interior Signs, Lobby Signs | No Comments

Having a storefront to display your products and services isn’t just about having a roof over your head and some exterior signs to entice new shoppers. Interior signage is crucial for building your brand and converting sales. One way to do this is with professional looking lobby signs Vancouver WA clients will notice. Roofline Supply realized this, so they called in the friendly experts at Specialty Graphic Solutions.

Roofline Supply Keeps You Covered

Roofline Supply & Delivery has locations throughout Idaho, California, Utah, Arizona, Oregon, Hawaii, and now Northeast 13th Avenue in Vancouver. Since they first opened their doors nearly a quarter of a century ago, they’ve grown to offer a full line of commercial roofing products. They provide on time, safe, and complete delivery of roofing products to builders, professionally licensed contractors, and homeowners.

When such a great regional chain decided to set up shop in our community, we were more than happy to help them out with reception area signs Vancouver WA consumers would remember. Roofline already knew that they were going to get the best service in the business, since we’d outfitted their new building with exterior building signs and window graphics. This time, though, they were in the market for a large lobby sign to help them brand in their showroom and make customers feel welcome.

SGS Nails It Again

Roofline already had a logo when they came to us. We just needed to incorporate it into the lobby sign. After consulting with the client, we decided a dimensional letter sign would work best. For both the logo and letters, we used quarter inch thick black PVC. The letters were custom routed to match Roofline’s font. They were then painted with a black satin finish. For the logo, we applied top quality white cut vinyl to the black PVC.

The finished product is about four feet high by nine and a half feet wide. To put the sign up on the wall at Roofline, our mighty sign markers created an installation template that would make sure the letters lined up correctly and allow us to complete installation in a timely manner. It worked! We were done in 90 minutes, and Roofline was happy with their beautiful new lobby sign.

“Hey! Can You Do that for My Business?”

Believe it or not, we’re able to fabricate lobby signs for every type of business in any industry. Some of the more popular reception area signs we produce are

  • Foam Lettering – If you want to have maximum depth in your lobby sign, foam letters are the way to go. For a glossy look, you can add an acrylic face.
  • PVC Lettering – PVC letters continue to be a favorite option for indoor signs. We have a wide array of standard colors, or we can paint your marker with a custom color or finish.
  • Metal Laminate – With metal laminate letters, you get the professional look and elegance of a metal sign without having to blow your whole marketing budget on a sign made entirely out of a metal alloy.

We also offer several other options. To learn more, don’t hesitate to contact us for a free consultation. Real, live people await your call!
