New Year’s Traditions
Among the most popular New Year’s traditions is creating resolutions to dismiss habits of the past and pledge to do better in the future. Whether it includes living a healthier life, being kinder to others, or visiting family more often, most people have created resolutions.
Let’s be honest…pretty much everyone wants to leave 2020 in the past and move forward into 2021 with the hopes of improvement. We get it. But, before we officially say goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021, we wanted to do a little reflection.
No, it doesn’t have to do with resolutions; we’re talking about our favorite projects of this past year (in no particular order)!
True Roots Realty Group
Christmas came a few days early for the True Roots Realty Group! We manufactured their channel letter signage and installed it three days before the holiday. We love the script typography, and their tree logo is beautiful!
Celebration of Lights – O’Fallon, MO
We’ve had the honor of creating the signage for the O’Fallon MO Celebration of Lights during the recent years. Although this photo only captures a yard sign, we create a variety of signage designs for the holiday light display that takes place in Fort Zumwalt Park. We love contributing to the community in this way!
El Mezon Mexican Restaurant
One of our favorite Mexican eateries, El Mezon, opened a second location this year, and we were so excited to help them out! We manufactured and installed the signage at their first location, so we were ecstatic to hear that they were opening a new location! When our customers are successful, we do a little happy dance for them.
Lighthouse for the Blind – St. Louis
Interior signage is just as important as exterior signage, as is the case at Lighthouse for the Blind in St. Louis. Not only does interior signage keep your brand’s messaging front and center; it also boosts employee morale. This was definitely one of our favorite projects to complete!
Pappy’s Smokehouse – St. Peters
Everyone was excited for Pappy’s Smokehouse barbecue restaurant to make their big debut in St. Charles County – us included! To make the situation even better, they’re located just down the street from our office. We had a blast creating and installing the channel letters with a demo from Van Ladder.
National Information Systems Cooperative
We helped National Information Systems Cooperative (NISC)‘s headquarters with a full-blown signage refresh. We updated and replaced their entrance monument (as seen above), installed fresh exterior illuminated channel letters, and added aluminum lettering both inside their foyer and outside for the address. What’s more, our own Sign Advisor, Michelle, worked on their first set of signage materials and helped them with the updated versions, too! It all came full circle.
AAA Home Services
We try to promote electronic message centers (EMCs) as much as we can, because they have a large return on investment. We were thrilled to help AAA Home Services boost their revenue with this new cabinet and EMC combination! Now, they can control their messaging from anywhere at any time, thanks to ScreenHub, the user-friendly cloud software from Cirrus Systems, Inc.
Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County
We were honored to design and install the signage for the new Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County location. We were happy to help an organization that gives so much to children and young adults. Wondering how we were able to capture this picture? That’s thanks to our bucket truck, Top Gun!
We also replaced our old mailbox. Talk about an improvement! We had the monument down in our shop for quite a while, and decided to make a mailbox out of it. We designed, created, and installed the vinyl greenery, along with our address number on the side.
Habitat for Humanity St. Charles ReStore
Check out those window perfs! We were happy to help Habitat for Humanity St. Charles ReStore with their grand opening by creating and installing window graphics. We loved contributing to another organization that provides assistance to our community.
Bankhead Orthodontic Specialists
We completed the interior and exterior signage solutions for Bankhead Orthodontic Specialists! Notice how their branding is unified? We want to help you portray your brand in the most positive light, and one of the biggest ways we do so is through portraying a consistent message in signage.
54th Street Grill and Bar
We also had the privilege of installing every St. Louis area location of 54th Street Bar and Grill‘s new signage this year. If you remember their old logo and signage, you know how much it has improved!
First Advantage Bank
The electronic message center and cabinet for 1st Advantage Bank also needed improvement this year, and we were honored to help them. Their old signage needed a refresh, and their digital display only showed orange lettering. This picture definitely shows the drastic difference signage can make for an organization!
We’ve been in our new location for a little over a year now, and we love it! Not only do we love the added space we have now; we also love our sign! Check out how it looks during the daytime and at night. It gives us all the heart eyes!
NatureScene Lawn Care
We appreciate and are thankful for our neighbors, NatureScene Lawn Care! We also helped them with designing and installing their channel letter signage. They are located on the lower level of our building, and have some warehouse space in the back, as well.
Here’s another daytime/nighttime illuminated channel letter comparison for Watson’s! They upgraded their logo and look, so the signage was soon to follow. We had fun with this job – look at how small our installer appears next to some of those letters! They are over six feet tall.
The Christian Life Center
We also installed an EMC board for The Christian Life Center in Ferguson, MO! We are certain that their attendance has improved thanks to their new display. They can show videos, Twitter feeds, photos, the weather forecast, and so much more now via their display!
That’s a Wrap, 2020
We hope you enjoyed reading and viewing the images from our favorite projects this year! Thank you to each and every customer whose signage solutions were included in this blog post – we couldn’t have completed any of these projects without you! Another thank you goes out to the other customers and friends that have chosen us this year. There were too many to include in one blog post, and we didn’t even touch on any of the other services we provide, such as yard signs, embroidery, Direct-to-Garment (DTG) t-shirt printing, personalized gifts, and much more.
See ya later, 2020, and welcome, 2021! We hope your new year is filled with many blessings, happiness, and health.
