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.

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!

Wood Wall Art Complements any Style

Printed Wall Art, World Map

Wood Wall Art, with custom printing on a wooden slatted surface or on a large flat plank, makes incredible wall art.  Modern decorating often combines rustic with modern or industrial with organic. Wood accent pieces work with almost any design scheme.  Wood wall art is perfect for displaying a favorite photograph, vintage artwork, or a meaningful quote.

Wood wall art can be adapted to any style, from modern to shabby chic.  Artwork is custom and can be distressed or colored with sepia or color highlights to give a more vintage vibe.  Clean lines in full color could complement a modern space.

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.

Our experienced design team can work with your ideas to come up with a truly original concept.  Contact us for a free quote on wood wall art today!

Donar Wall Signs for recognition of supporters

Tempered Glass Donor Signs are Clean & Modern

Donar Wall Signs for recognition of supportersLooking for high-class donor signs with a clean, modern aesthetic?  Glass or acrylic signs make the perfect addition to any business.  2nd Harvest’s most recent project for attractive Donor Signs was achieved using tempered glass with a finely polished edge.

The donor signs were mounted to a slat-wood wall in the 2nd Harvest Kitchen.  Clean and modern against warm and a bit rustic makes for a very attractive sponsor wall.

Another tempered glass sign nearby in the Kitchen Addition was backed with dusted crystal vinyl.  The vinyl backing gives the look of sandblasted glass, and it also helps soften the shadow cast by the signs.

Glass donor wall signs with stand offs for a 3-D affect“The original panels cast a little bit of a shadow, and the one backed with the dusted crystal mutes the shadowing somewhat.  We may add this behind the original ones at some point,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said.

Tempered Glass Donor signs

We can print on the reverse side of acrylic or glass so inks are protected from scratching and other wear and tear.  Or, as in this case, we can add a specialty vinyl to the back to change the look of the finished print.  When used with standoffs or special lighting, these signs really shine.

Glass and Acrylic make great donor signs. They can also be used for:

  • Lobby Signs
  • Display Walls
  • Backlit Signs
  • Standoff Signs
  • And more!

fire department emblem signs look great on 17 spokane stations, custom acm aluminum signs

Fire Department Emblem Signs

fire department emblem signs look great on 17 spokane stations, custom acm aluminum signsNew Fire Department Emblem Signs create consistency among 17 Spokane Fire Department stations.  These four and a half foot emblems create uniformity and unique “branding” for the fire stations.

This is a large project that has taken many months to come to fruition.  With the different locations involved, as well as funding and approvals, it just takes time.  But the biggest challenge, according to Signs for Success designer Julie Dean, was getting the color just right.

“Having to match the gold and the red was a really great feat to accomplish—not only to get the red right, but to make that gold look like the gold emblem,” Julie said.  Their vehicle decals have real 22K gold in the vinyl.  This makes it more challenging to find a perfect match.

Perfect Color and Placement

After a bit of testing, however, we found that printing onto vinyl using our solvent printer achieved the best color.  “Printed high performance vinyl got the best color; it was perfect,” Julie said.  “They took the sample around the station and were really happy with it.”  An added bonus of printing to vinyl, rather than directly to the surface, is the ability to add bleed to the print.  This in turn allows perfect edge to edge placement on the unique emblem shape.

Fire Department Emblem Sign Material

There are a lot of outdoor durable sign materials that could work for this project. After discussing the options, we decided on 3mm ACM (aluminum composite material).  “ACM is two thin alumDimensional Emblem Signinum panels sandwiching a plastic core,” Julie explained.  “Durability is extreme, but the expense is moderate” when compared to a thicker material or solid aluminum.

Each sign is mounted with black standoffs and decorative knobs on the face that are tamper-proof.  “They are offset from the brick of the building just a little bit, and we were able to shape cut their shield, which gives extraordinary dimension,” Julie said.

At present, we have 9 Fire Department emblem signs installed, and over the next couple of months we will be doing the other 8 locations, one of them the training station. The remaining eight buildings will take a little longer because they’re not prototypical.  Since each building is different, sign placement has to be evaluated and approved.

“I can’t tell you just how thankful we are that you helped us ‘brand’ the fire department,” Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer said.  “The finished products [are] amazing!”

Pro Asphalt needed affordable coro corro corrugated yard signs with stakes in Spokane and Greenacres, yard signs spokane valley

Get Noticed with Custom Yard Signs

Custom yard signs advertise your work in the communities you serve.  They promote awareness and boost consumer confidence in a company’s ability to provide excellent services or products.  In short, people are more likely to go with a company that others have chosen.  Leaving yard signs at houses and businesses you’ve serviced lets others know you are the business of choice.  In a way, it carries the weight of a positive review and refers others to you.

Pro Asphalt needed affordable coro corro corrugated yard signs with stakes in Spokane and Greenacres, yard signs spokane valley

Yard signs offer the opportunity to promote certain services or promotions.  At minimum, your yard sign should have your logo and phone number and/or website.  Colors can be customized to match your logo, vehicles or other branding style.  Even this small amount of information can be enough to connect customers to your business, while too much information is confusing, cluttered and unprofessional looking.

Yard signs are especially effective when they showcase work that’s visible from the street.  Custom yard signs are essential for:

  • Contractors
  • Roofers
  • Landscapers and Lawn Care Specialists

They’re also great for any indoor work, renovations or repairs that others in the neighborhood might be in the market for.

Now is a great time to stock up on yard signs.  Standard yard signs are rectangular and measure 18 inches by 24 inches.  This offers the most efficient use of material.  However, you can opt to customize your size and shape to get a unique look that sets your signs apart from others in the neighborhood.  Our design team can help you set up artwork and choose what features best represent your company, vision and budget.

This spring, get seen by neighbors, walkers, bike riders, and more with professional, custom yard signs.  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 custom yard signs today!

dimensional letters on wood plank wall custom signs by Signs for Success, church signs

Church Signs for True Hope Church

church signs building signs spokane True Hope Church recently acquired the Lincoln Center, and they are planning a large renovation in the summer of 2018.  But until then, they need directional church signs to help people get to the auditorium, classes, and restrooms.

“It was a good, inexpensive way to get the signs they needed, to last the six months or so until the renovation,” Signs for Success designer Jamie Wood said.  “They wanted temporary signage that was inexpensive but still looks nice.”

way finding signs for True Hope Church in SpokaneThere were some existing signs in the building that we were able to reuse by turning them over and putting cut vinyl on the back, then rehanging.  Other signs were printed on foam core, an inexpensive material that is great for indoor signs.  Foam core has a smooth paper surface, but, like its name, it has a foam “core” that makes the product rigid.  By printing white lettering on a dark grey background, we were able to match the existing signs for a unified look throughout the building.

“They have a pretty specific branding look, so we stuck with that,” Jamie explained.  “We had their logo watermarked in the background with all the information.”

dimensional letters on wood plank wall custom signs by Signs for SuccessAside from the directional signs, there was another aspect of this project that is meant to be long-term.  “True Hope Kids” in large dimensional letters is located on a wall that will not be affected by the renovation.  Not worried about replacing this wall sign any time soon, the customer chose to create bold letters that are stud mounted to a wall of planked wood.  The glossy white acrylic contrasts against the natural wood planks, and mounted about ¾” off the wall, it looks amazing.

wire standoff system on custom wall display for SNAP spokane

Wire Standoff System Creates Modern Wall Display

wire standoff system on custom wall display for SNAP spokaneA unique wall display on a wire standoff system was the perfect solution for SNAP in Spokane a few years ago.  It was so well received that they came back for a similar display dubbed the “Gold Club Wall,” wires and all.

“Back in 2014, we worked on a donor wall that was on wire cabling and standoffs.  It turned out beautifully. When Jennifer Martin was ready to have another wall done, they reached out to us to help with production and installation,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said.

“We have a similar display that Signs for Success did for SNAP’s Capital Campaign.  We wanted to keep the same design since the Gold Club wall is on a wall near the other display,” Jennifer Martin of SNAP Spokane explained.  Donations go towards their mission of providing opportunities for people in need.

Signs for Success designer Jamie Wood took the provided photos and content and laid out a similar wall with photos juxtaposed with sponsor panels.  The donor names are applied as needed with cut vinyl lettering onto brushed gold ACM (aluminum composite material) panels.  The display is installed on a wire standoff system using cables and standoff mounts.  The look is modern and industrial while creating a dimensional look.

“It’s a great example of environmental graphics adding to the pleasing atmosphere of their offices,” Vanessa said.  Environmental graphics are graphics that improve the visual environment and enhance a person’s experience.  The new wall display fills a blank space with uplifting content, visually showing SNAP’s progression towards a goal.  Donor walls like this one can boost morale, and even performance, as they encourage the individual to work toward a collective goal.  It’s also visually appealing with its clean, modern  design.

“We are very pleased with the final product,” Jennifer said.  “It really brightens up the hallway and everyone notices it immediately.”

The first wall we did for SNAP was described as modern, polished and professional.  The new wall coordinates well, is equally attractive and will be enjoyed for many years to come.  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 wire standoff system today!
