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!”

JRCC Building signs

Just Right Cleaning & Construction in Moses Lake updated their outdoor signs with these new ACM building signs.  The building signs feature JRCC’s updated logo and match the latest vehicle graphics, also designed by Signs for Success.

The original signage was a large wall wrap that lasted several years, but the graphics had become old and needed to be replaced.  “We first quoted them on removing the old graphics that were cracking and peeling.  But it would have taken so much time and labor to remove, and with all the scraping and pressure washing, they would have had to repaint the building,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said.  “The solution was to install ACM (aluminum composite material) signs that more than covered the old graphics, and that saved on both labor and material.”

ACM has a solid plastic core with thin aluminum faces on front and back.  It’s a great long-term outdoor sign material as it is not affected by high heat or moisture.

The new graphics were printed on high performance vinyl and laminated with a UV laminate to increase longevity.  The graphics were then applied to several ACM panels for a finished size of 19.5 feet x 9 feet and 11 feet  x 14 feet.  The ACM panels were bolted to the outside of the building, completely covering the old graphics.  When it comes time to update graphics in the future, switching out the panels will be simple.  Signs for Success handled the install in Moses Lake, WA.

“We’ve done a lot of work with JRCC with their vehicle wrap designs,” Vanessa said.  “Now their building signs have the same logo and newer look.”
