Building golf course brand identity begins with golf course logo design. A well-designed golf course logo can contribute to success, while a substandard logo design can turn off potential customers. Rob Sanders, the new PGA Pro at Esmeralda Golf Course, recently contacted us to design a new logo for the course. “He and his wife had some preliminary ideas, and going through the design and proofing process, Jamie was able to get them a logo they love,” Signs for Success owner John Bogensberger said.
Golf Course Logo Design Process
- Initial interview for preferences and direction on colors, style and overall vision. A logo is the basic unit of a larger brand identity. Through colors, fonts and images, it provides essential information about a company that allows customers to identify with the company’s core brand.
- Compile elements and conduct research, if needed.
- Create Proof(s).
- Revise proof until final logo design is achieved.
Signs for Success designer Jamie Wood talked about the process for Esmeralda Golf’s logo design. “They brought some ideas of different logos they liked. The first time we sat down, we looked at different fonts and compiled all the elements they liked. I sent four proofs, and they picked one from that group. Then we made little changes, like take off a little line here or change the font. It was really helpful that they had ideas of styles they liked and pictures of logos so I could take those things and turn them into what they really wanted.”
A new golf course logo design can then be applied to signs, vehicles, marketing materials and more.
“The new golf course logo design is already above the fireplace and on two of our scoreboards. It’s also on 46 golf carts and I am hopeful in a couple of months
we will have a new sign made at the entry with it,” Rob said.
A golf course logo design is the chief visual component of a company’s brand identity. It unifies all the different aspects of a business, like on scoreboards and golf carts. Logos also provide a standard and unified focus for fonts, colors, and design choices in all other business and marketing materials.
If your logo could use an update, or a complete re-do, we can help. Our logo design packages accommodate different needs, from vectorizing and/or updating to designing a completely new logo with multiple concepts and proofs. In addition, we can take that fabulous new logo design and implement it into signs, vehicle graphics, and more!
“I was referred to John from an employee that had worked with him in the past. As I checked with others that have used him they have all been extremely happy with his quality and the price of his work,” Rob said. “My experience has been excellent and I absolutely am thrilled with the results. I would highly recommend anyone looking for help in logo redesign, branding and signage. John and his staff are amazing!”

Contractors starting up a new business, or just trying to revamp an existing one, should consider their brand positioning. Whether the business is multi-tier or just a one-person contractor, building a brand goes hand in hand with gaining customers and building a local customer base.
Contractors can find their brand identity by cueing in on anything that defines their company, including products, services, warranties, guarantees, customer service, and ideals. What can your business offer that others in the area cannot? What is the customer perception on your product or service? Once you’ve identified your branding strategy, you’re ready to market it.
There are many ways to advertise your business, but the key is to keep branding consistent no matter what type of marketing or signage you choose to use. Just one slogan rather than several and the same colors and logos throughout is a must. These are the three most essential contractor advertising ideas we recommend:
Contractor promotional products keep advertising for as long as they are useful, which means up to years of promotion. Nifty items like pens, notepads, Nalgene water bottles, and Frisbees are just a few examples of promotional products customers will come back to again and again.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing’s clever toilet paper promotional item will not be soon forgotten by its users.
In addition to fun and creative promo items that might be specific to your industry, for any type of contractor, we recommend refrigerator magnets. Whenever you service someone’s home, before you leave, stick your magnet on their fridge with a couple of business cards and a brochure listing all your services. They’ll know just who to call next time, and they’ll have quick access to your number if they want to recommend you to someone else. Your Signs for Success account representative can help you with selection and pricing or you can browse anytime at our Promotional Products Store.
Professional Business Cards
Business cards are like promotional products – they are the traditional leave-behind tool that many customers have come to expect. Many people keep them on hand for future reference. Make your card easily recognizable by keeping colors and graphics consistent with your contractor business branding. Give a few cards to happy customers so they can pass them on.
You’ve invested in service vehicles, now use them! A truck wrap for your work truck(s) or van fleet wraps are a great use of space you already own. All that is required is a one-time investment for a wrap that will last 5-7 years. According to research, just the fact that your signs are on your vehicle rather than a board or post in the ground generates more interest and recall rate among viewers, and vehicle wraps can generate up to 70,000 impressions per day! To top off your truck wrap or van wrap, consider business card holders that can be directly attached to either side of the vehicle. Potential customers can lift the top and take a business card with them.
These 3 contractor advertising ideas will work together to create a positive lasting impression with your target audience. Let us help you create promotional items, business cards, and vehicle wraps to build your brand and your customer base.

We recently designed custom oval shaped business cards for ViralTNTeam. These unique business cards won’t soon be forgotten by the many recipients Guy Siverson meets day to day. “If you’re looking for a provider who will simply take your order, slap out a product and send you on your way you will be disappointed with this company…They know how to put the fun into friendly in a very professional way,” Guy said about the customer service he received throughout the project. “They also know how to listen as well as provide incredible insight into what will or won’t work for your end product.”

We have the opportunity with many businesses looking for a fresh start, or new businesses just starting up, to create a logo design and brand image from scratch. Working with the customer to achieve their vision is rewarding, especially when we get to see the final product – a complete advertising campaign utilizing the new logo across different media. For Pioneer Homes, we helped create a new logo design and implement it into the production of custom yard signs, business cards and a van wrap.
Logo Design Spokane
Our experienced design team works with customers one on one to come up with a logo design that suits their company identity and goals. “We came up with a new logo after many revisions. Gil is thrilled with his new logo,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said. Logos are a shorthand way of referring to the company. They are the “face” of the company, and they provide a standard and unified focus for the various fonts, colors and design choices in all other marketing materials. As such, it’s important to take the time to work out a design that will convey that unique identity.
Custom Yard Signs
Custom yard signs are a cost-effective way to advertise on and near properties you are working on. The standard size for yard signs is 18” x 24,” but yard signs are customizable, including sign size, colors, text and artwork. Vanessa was able to incorporate the new logo into the yard sign design while still maintaining a clean, easy-to-read design. We print yard signs on weather-resistant corrugated plastic. Printing can be single- or double-sided, and UV-curable inks hold up outdoors for several months, up to a few years, depending on weather and direct sun exposure.
Van Wrap Design
Vehicle wraps are regarded as the best form of outdoor advertising in terms of return on investment (ROI). It’s a no brainer to use space you already own to advertise your business, especially when that space also travels to all the communities you want to advertise in. Furthermore, vehicle wraps generate up to 70,000 impressions per day, and they last 5-7+ years.
“We used his own great photos from jobs he has done in the Inland Northwest as well as out in the Seattle and Western Washington area,” Vanessa said. Using photographs from finished projects is a great idea – not only is your logo advertised wherever the vehicle goes, but proof of your expertise does as well. When it comes to van wrap design, simple and bold is the way to go. Too much text or lots of small photos are difficult to process quickly. On the other hand, a large logo, large photo and contact information gives just enough visual impact without overwhelming.
Gil of Pioneer Homes was able to use the new logo across different media, from yard signs and business cards to a new van wrap. Now with the cohesive look, Pioneer Homes is giving a great first impression wherever business takes them.

Custom printed coasters aren’t just for restaurants; they can be used at any business or promotional event for additional exposure. Since we added full color drink coasters to our long list of promotional advertising options at the beginning of the year, we’ve seen many orders for these thoughtful special event favorites.
We started making drink coasters when one of our long-time clients was in a pinch with his regular supplier. “It was just before Christmas, and his usual supplier was closing for two weeks around the holidays and could not deliver in time for their event on New Years’ Eve,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger explained. “We called a few more of our vendors but received the same answer.”
Vanessa immediately began the search for a suitable material to print custom drink coasters on. She collaborated with Signs for Success Production Manager Denise Gillit, and they came up with X-board. “We decided to use X-board, which is very much like matte board for framing, and it’s a better quality product than most coasters are printed on,” Vanessa said. “We were able to print the coasters full color, double sided for similar pricing as the ad specialty products, but we got a far superior product.”
These custom printed coasters were completed on time for First Night Spokane, a Spokane Symphony event, and our client Clint Burgess was thrilled with the result. He ordered 4,000 double sided, full color coasters for his New Years’ event, and loved them so much that he has come back to order more every time they run low. Custom drink coasters have become a regular advertising tool for Spokane Symphony.
Drink coasters are great for:
- Special events
A drink coaster is a great place to advertise upcoming events, special deals, and contact information such as logo, website, phone number, and social media. We can do single- or double-sided full color printing to really maximize the advertising space. We now advocate our in-house custom printed drink coasters over other vendors because, as Vanessa says, “Our coasters are superior quality of both print and material, done locally, done more quickly, and at a very reasonable price point.” It just doesn’t get any better than that!
