indoor wall murals add interest to the Avista Jimmy Dean Center in Spokane

Custom Facility Signs for Avista’s Jimmy Dean Center

Illuminated channel letterset, custom channel letters for AvistaAvista Corp., the Spokane-based energy company, needed custom facility signs with consistent branding for their new maintenance and repair facility. Officially named the “Jimmy Dean Center,” it includes a 15,100 square foot maintenance building and adjacent compressed natural gas fueling station. The Jimmy Dean Center is named for a gas line worker who died while responding to an outage after hours in the winter of 1996.  

As with any large facility, signs are needed throughout to inform and direct. New signs at the Jimmy Dean Center include:

  1. An Acrylic Lobby Sign
  2. Illuminated Channel Letterset for the outside of the building
  3. Large Etchmark letter “G” on entry glass
  4. Outdoor Aluminum and Acrylic Facility Entrance Sign
  5. Directional Signs, and
  6. A Series of Indoor Wall Murals

  1. The logo lobby sign was created with three different layers on cut acrylic. The first surface is white cut vinyl with the Avista logo. The second surface is etchmark vinyl gives the look of frosted glass, custom facility signsEtchmark vinyl, a translucent film that gives the look of “etched” or frosted glass. Finally, the Etchmark vinyl is backed with a medium gray film.  “Two second surface layers gives it a unique aesthetic,” Signs for Success’ Bryce Morrison said. The dimensional look is enhanced with ¾-inch brushed silver standoffs.

2. On the outside of the building, you are greeted by a custom illuminated channel letterset. By adding blue vinyl and reverse weeding to create the white negative space, we were able to perfectly match their logo.

The graphics cover several sections of glass over approximately 11 square feet.  Avery Etchmark film adds a little privacy and the upscale look of sandblasted glass.

4. The Facility Entrance Sign uses an aluminum cabinet painted blue to match Avista’s branding. “Jimmy Dean Center” is cut from the aluminum face, with half inch white acrylic letters pushed through. The acrylic is illuminated, and creates an overall simple and modern entrance sign.

Each sign is printed on ACM (Aluminum Composite Material) and laminated for added durability.  They are a combination of single and double sided signs, either 24” square or 18” square, and all county compliant.

6. Finally, a series of wall murals adds interest to the interior of the facility.  We installed over 100 linear feet of historical Avista photos and local history. A wall mural “offers great interior graphic options, brings the building’s character to life, and unifies all spaces,” Bryce explained.

Custom Outdoor Signs Complement New Connections Garden

multidimensional monument sign for Connections Garden in Spokane's Riverfront Park, custom outdoor signsWe were honored to take part in the new Connections Garden in the heart of Spokane.  The Connections Garden is a project funded by the Sister Cities Association of Spokane. Their goal is to showcase

Custom Outdoor Sign - Basalt, steel, acrylic and wood

 Spokane’s sister cities while attracting new and repeat visitors to the historic Riverfront park. 

The new garden provides a space to honor and celebrate the importance of Spokane’s Sister Cities through nature and art. It is placed at the site of the former Japanese Pavilion at the Expo ’74 World’s Fair.  The garden features sculptures from partnerships with Limerick, Ireland; Nishinomiya, Japan; and Spokane. Plans are underway for art from partner cities in Jilin, China; Jecheon, South Korea; and Cagli, Italy.

In addition to one of a kind art pieces placed throughout the garden, custom signs made from natural materials help guide you through the garden.  Using a combination of stone, steel, wood, acrylic and ACM (aluminum composite material), the signs add to the artistry of the area.

The custom outdoor signs are meant to inform and direct without taking anything away from the natural scenery, sculptures, and symbolism.  For example, the blue-green curved pathways symbolize the connections of the Sister Cities’ rivers to the oceans of the world.  To continue the theme, blue and green curved acrylic pieces adorn the signs along the path. The multidimensional signs are mounted to stone monuments.

All of the materials chosen are also outdoor durable and will look great for many years to come.  Do you need unique custom designed signs for an outdoor space? We can help with that!

Custom digitally printed chain link fence slats for Utopian Tailgate

Custom Chain Link Fence Slats Capture Chicago Skyline

Custom digitally printed chain link fence slats for Utopian TailgateChain link fences are effective but not usually very attractive. Check out the difference these custom chain link fence slats make!  We printed the fence slats for Utopian Tailgate, a roof top restaurant in Chicago. The vibrant design connects their brand with their city. 

Custom fence slats transform your space, so instead of looking at chain link, you’re looking at a work of art.  

We have done several successful and high impact projects since we developed custom printed fence slats in 2014.  From sports fields, to private events, and now a rooftop restaurant, chain link fence slats shine in any setting.

To create custom fence slats, we print your artwork onto corrugated plastic, which can then be easily cut into individual slats. To install the fence pieces, begin by weaving the endcap into the chain link where you want the bottom of the sign to rest. Next, cut and install the slats a few at a time by weaving them down through the chain link.  Finally, stand back and admire your work. It’s exciting to see the picture take shape!  

Chainlink Fence Slats for Utopian Tailgate Restaurant ChicagoWhy choose fence slats over other fence signs?  

For one, they look incredible.  None of the vibrancy is lost when the graphics are cut and installed.  In addition, the slats can cover a large area for maximum visual impact.  And double-sided slats give you separate images on either side of the fence.  But the biggest reason we advocate for chain link fence slats is their durability.  They eliminate the possibility of wind damage that often ruins other types of fence signs. Our fence slats are sturdy, waterproof, and they withstand high winds without tearing or blowing out.

Fence slats can be used for advertising, beautifying, or both. For Utopian Tailgate, they wanted to bring a hip, vibrant vibe that represented their brand while visually improving the space. These slats certainly add to the atmosphere and take advantage of the stunning views of the Chicago skyline. Let us transform your space!

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.

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.
