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!”

Custom Shaped Powder Coated Town Sign

Town Sign for Senior Class Gift

Custom Routed Town SignA welcoming Town Sign is a lovely addition to any town, big or small.  Rosalia High School’s senior class sponsored beautiful new “Welcome to Rosalia” signs to give back to their town.  Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger brainstormed with Sean Moss from Rosalia School District to come up with the town sign design.  The result is a modern design with durable finishes that will look great for many years.

Design

“He wanted a double layer, cut out (like a stencil) metal sign face,” Vanessa explained.  Laser cut or stencil cut metal signs are smooth with a clean, modern look.  “The sign face was shape cut and the design cut out of it, then it was powder-coated flint gray.  The posts and solid, shaped backer panel were powder-coated black.”

Materials & Installation

Custom Shaped Powder Coated Town SignThe welcome signs are 3/8” aluminum, ideal for long- to permanent-use signs.  Aluminum is strong and weather resistant, and

powder-coating will also last many years.  The signs are installed with concrete footings and solar front lighting.

Customize your town sign with:

    • Shape cutting
    • Laser cut design
    • Special lighting
    • Mascot, or Local attraction(s)

Rosalia High School raised over 50% in donations and partnered with the Town of Rosalia to get these great signs done.  We were honored to be a part of it.  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.  Get quality service and a quick turnaround on a Town Sign; contact us for a free quote today!
