dimensional letters, dimensional logo, and acrylic photo print for Gonzaga University in Spokane, custom signs

Dimensional Letters and Photo Print Personalize Gonzaga Office

dimensional letters, dimensional logo, and acrylic photo print for Gonzaga University in Spokane, custom signsDimensional letters add a professional look to any office building, lobby or school. Gonzaga University in Spokane used metal letters in their admissions office.  Below the admission center sign is a custom dimensional logo in the same brushed nickel finish.

To add interest and really personalize the space, they wanted to display an old photo of the campus.

On the adjacent wall is a photo print of the original Gonzaga Campus in 1893. We reverse printed the photo “second surface,” or on the back of the acrylic. This prevents scratches and wear from damaging the actual print surface.  In addition, cleaning the photo print is simple since the graphics are protected.  The acrylic photo print is mounted with brushed nickel standoffs to add dimension and complement the dimensional letters.

We offer dimensional letters in several finishes and colors.  Metal letters come in nickel, bronze and gold finishes, and formed plastic letters are available in a vast array of colors.  We can also create custom logo shapes to match.  Best of all, our dimensional letters and signs come with a lifetime warranty.

Photo prints add a personal touch to your office or business.  Choose an image that represents your goals, service or location. Hanging a relevant image can bring warmth and interest to plain walls.  Second surface printing, like Gonzaga’s photo print, will guarantee your image looks polished and new for many years to come.

If you want to add interest to your lobby or office space, we can help with custom dimensional letters, logos and photo prints!  Signs for Success is a locally owned family business in Spokane. We strive for excellent customer service, perfect color, and quick turnaround on every project. Our large production facility allows us to design, print and install everything in-house.

Channel Letter Sign uses 3M Day Night film for different colors during the day vs. night, day night channel letters

Day Night Channel Letters Play with Color

Channel Letter Sign uses 3M Day Night film for different colors during the day vs. night, day night channel lettersDay Night Channel Letters create a unique look between daytime and night.  Traditional channel letters will typically show the same color day and night, but with 3M’s Day Night Film, you can achieve two different face colors.  Since the best day color choice might not be the best choice for nighttime, Day Night Channel Letters get you a visually compelling and effective sign for both day and night.

Also known as a light management film, this specialty film produces the appearance of dark graphics during the day and the appearance of white or colored graphics at night.  The film is perfect for illuminated signs and lasts up to 9 years.  With 47% light transmission, 3M’s film works as a diffuser so letters appear dark during daytime and white when lit at night.

“This is the second job we have done for Apex Physical Therapy.  The first one at their north store was for new polycarbonate/Lexan faces in a pole sign and two monument signs, as well as door and window vinyl for name and hours.   Bernadette Hamilton from BLH Marketing worked on the logo and rebranding,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger explained.  “Next we worked in channel letters for the Sunset Highway/Airway Heights location.  They did not like white letters during the day, so we discussed a “day black, night white” face option.  They loved it! The channel letter set turned out very nice, and within budget.”

Apex Physical Therapy liked the look of black letters on their sign, but needed them to be illuminated at night.  Since white reflects all the colors of the light spectrum, it is arguably the most effective night color choice.  The diffuser film used over their Day Night Channel Letters also helps distribute illumination evenly and eliminate “hot spots.”  We’re happy we could help them achieve an effective and great looking sign for both day and night!

Warehouse roof mounted panel sign with molded plastic letters, outdoor business signs

Outdoor Business Signs at Justus Bag

Warehouse roof mounted panel sign with molded plastic letters, outdoor business signsJustus Bag Company needed updated outdoor business signs for their warehouse on Trent, including a roof-mounted panel sign and a sign for the side of the building that faces the street.  We were able to come up with a solution that is both modern and brand-consistent for their needs.

“The client wanted to update their current roof mounted signs with a cleaner, more modern look. After coming to understand their brand, Earl Van Eaton and I decided a vertical sign with just the company name would work best,” Signs for Success sales specialist Tom Bross explained. We used custom molded plastic letters mounted to 3mm Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) to create the roof-top sign.  “The signs are lit from below, so day or night, the new signs make a good impression.”

Justus Bag building sign in Spokane, new outdoor business signsThe warehouse had its own challenges, namely the surface texture.  “The warehouse was like a big empty canvas, albeit a bumpy one. Instead of applying vinyl directly to the surface, we opted to make a large direct-print ACM sign that was printed and assembled in sections. This gave us a nice white flat background to enlarge the logo on to,” Tom explained.  “The two signs work well together. They look professional, clean and are brand consistent.”

ACM is outdoor durable, makes a great printing surface, and lasts several years. Adding custom graphics or molded dimensional letters to ACM can make a bold statement while keeping with the goal of simple and effective signage.  New signs make a great impression, and these modern outdoor business signs will look great for many years to come.

Illuminated sign with Push through letters and logo

Illuminated Sign for Deer Park Dentist

Bates DDSIlluminated sign with Push through letters and logo wanted an updated, modern sign that projects the quality of his dental practice.  This illuminated sign features a solid background with “push thru” letters. Push thru letters and elements interest to a simple and modern monument sign.

Moving to a new building, Bates Dental took advantage of the opportunity. They were able to update their outdoor sign, while still keeping with current branding.  “We worked with his brother from Grid Shift to come up with a clean design that featured back-lit, push-through elements,” Signs for Success Sales Specialist Tom Bross explained.  “We carefully matched the green vinyl for brand consistency.”

Illuminated Sign with “Push Thru” Letters

“Push thru” signs are signs that have the letters or logo shape routed out and thick acrylic is routed to match.  The acrylic is then pushed through the back of the sign and attaches to the sign face.  The overall effect is clean design with added depth and dimension.

We created the custom illuminated sign with simple design in mind.  Beside the black background, the only color is the logo green, and we had to be sure it was perfect.  We did color testing until we matched their pantone color exactly.

“The challenge was coordinating the install because the monument base was being built as part of the new construction. We visited the site, took measurements, consulted with the builder, and worked out a solution,” Tom said.  “The finished sign is clean, simple and conveys the quality the client was looking for.”

Outdoor Illuminated Signs

Outdoor signs and monument signs are essential for office and corporate buildings, medical professionals, schools, hospitals, and more.  An illuminated sign will not only increase visibility, but also add a certain quality and professionalism to your business front.  Whether you have new construction or need to makeover an older monument sign, we will work with your vision and budget to create an eye-catching illuminated sign.

Wall of Fame signs and plaques printed ACM

Wall of Fame for Coaches – Aluminum Plaques

Wall of Fame signs and plaques printed ACM

Wall shown from each end

When Maury Ray and Keith Snyder from Community Colleges of Spokane came in to brainstorm ideas for a wall of fame they were looking for nice plaques on a budget. “We started with pricing for cast plaques, but found the price was prohibitive,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said.  After brainstorming some other options for nice looking custom plaques, we decided to try printing on brushed silver ACM.  Aluminum Composite Material has the look of solid metal. It has aluminum faces with a solid plastic core that is great for printing and is extremely durable.  ACM comes in white, black, brushed silver, brushed gold, and a several other colors.  ACM is a versatile material since you can change the look of the print by simply changing the finish of the metal.

To test, we produced a sample print on brushed silver that turned out great.  “We printed black and white images of past coaches with a short paragraph of their coaching history. Brushed aluminum standoffs were used to mount these to the wall, giving a great look,” Vanessa said.  For protection against scratches and other wear and tear, we laminated each plaque with a matte protective laminate.

Then the SCC staff did the wall creation and installation in a grid pattern.   The black and white metal plaques against rich wood planked walls give the display a clean and classic look.

In addition to the brushed silver plaques, we also did eleven smaller plaques on the brushed gold ACM for coaches who have passed.  On these, we added white ink as a layer under the photo area to give the photos depth and dimension, making a great memory wall.Printed Aluminum wall plaques for wall of fame

“Overall, we came in far under budget, and the look is awesome. As they add more coaches in the future, this is an affordable option over cast plaques,” Vanessa explained.

 

If you’re looking to create a wall of fame or similar wall display on a budget, metal plaques or ACM prints could be the perfect solution!  Signs for Success is a locally owned family business in Spokane, and we strive for excellent customer service, perfect color, and quick turnaround on every project.  Our large production facility allows us to design, print and install everything in-house.  Contact us for a free quote on a Wall of Fame today!

charity event signs for Love 11 Foundation in Spokane

Charity Event Signs for Love 11 Summer Kickoff

charity event signs for Love 11 Foundation in Spokane Josh and Emily, creators of the Micah Daniel Love Foundation, came in about 2 weeks before their big annual Love 11 Summer Kickoff needing charity event signs.

We did several event signs including parking signs and sponsor signs.  “It was pretty run of the mill, except for one sign that we got pretty creative with.” Signs for Success designer Joe Ingalls said.  That sign was a dimensional sign with several layers that incorporated astro-turf, a real clipboard for sign-ups, and a large cut-out of their son, for whom the foundation is named.  All of the elements were mounted at varying distances from the background for added depth.

The photo of Micah Love, who passed away in an accident in 2016, is made the main focus of this standing sign.  The background is a blurred stadium at night with added light rays and fog for drama.  The layers in the forefront include sports balls, a foam finger, and the word “Win.”  The graphics were all contour cut from polystyrene, while the main frame of the sign is printed PVC.

The Micah Daniel Love Foundation “Love 11” is a foundation with a mission to reach at risk and economically disadvantaged youth through sports and local activity programs. Love 11 grants scholarships and funds to youth sports organizations, schools and local programs within our community.  We were honored to be a small part of their annual summer event.

Charity Event Signs can include:

  • A-frame signs
  • Parking signs
  • Handicap ADA signs
  • Sponsor signs
  • Directional Signs
  • Banners, and more!

Custom Dry Fly Distilling bottle boxes

One very important key to successful printing on wood is white ink.  When working with non-white surfaces, we print a layer of white ink before printing the actual graphics.  For the Dry Fly Vodka box project, we printed a red logo onto unfinished cedar wood.  Printing red ink directly to the wood produces a faint logo that lacks the necessary contrast between the logo and background, but by simply adding white ink beneath the red, the logo really pops.

We did several wood wall art test prints with various white ink opacities as well as highlighting and distressing to show what is possible when printing to wood.  A lower opacity will give a more faded look while 100% opacity presents bright color, just as it would appear on any other white surface.  We can print to customer-provided materials as well as the wood slats we stock.
