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.
