That sounds like a cool thread to start, sounds like it will be one of those long ones that just will never end.

I agree, and even though our sign is very plain, I'll go first.

We're located in an industrial park, in the first unit of our building (facing the street). The landlord only allows plaque style sings on square blanks that are located next to each door, so we simply stuck our logo on in vinyl and were done with it. I have since been able to persuade them to allow us to make an illuminated sign that is exactly the same size, but with a little more flair.

The sign will be about 3/4" thick and be internally illuminated with one of our LumiPane light panels. The face will have push-thru acrylic letters thru a laser cut and formed aluminum face. It will be mounted on 3/4" standoffs and be halo-lit around the perimeter using either color changing RGB or Warm White LEDs. We might as well make some more internal signs to match, so I'll post shots when ready - but I figured this could be a really good thread as Erik said above, and someone has to TOFTT and get the ball rolling.

So with that said - let's see what kind of signs the sign guys use to show off or 'brand' their own companies. Who's got next?

We are at the very end in an industrial park so not a great place to display our talent. We show off by taking the customers through our 18,000 sq. ft. plant and seeing many other signs in process.post-2142-1252947910.jpg

Agreed - it looks well kept and probably shows well when clients do come by. Some places don't benefit from their signs being seen (like us) but there's still something to be said for showing off your own capabilities a little.

PS - I was beginning to think I might be the only one to post in this thread - so thanks for joining in Dan :)

Keep 'em coming!

Because I picked the two most economically strapped states in the country to do business in!! (Mi. & Fl.) and had to get back to the customers (feels good), but I will try to contribute more often.

Guys, really??

All you guys and gals in the sign industry and none of you have signs on your buildings or tall metal trees planted out on the curb to show us? Don't be shy, some of sign guys have the ugliest ones but only make them better for others (because we're being paid for it!) :whistling:

Well, I don't have the photos (they are on our designers computer) but you can see our samples at our newly revamped website http://hansonsigns.com.

Not to be confused with www.hansonsign.com, they are in NY and a much larger facility than us.

Hey now, that's a cheap shot! AND a very bad pic taken with a lousy digital camera that does no justice to the real clarity of that fantastic sign. :eyebrow:

Look at the lack of dead space needed on both sides of that sign! :P Demo work, demo work!

What I've been trying to dig up was my old shop pic of a roof top sign that I had. Many a parties I had at that shop, 20 years old, single, bands playing. If I could return to be a fly on that wall during that time. fnd%20(22).gif

First time posting, new member.

There is a nice shot of our building sign on the splash page of our website.

http://www.gablesigns.com

This sign is actually florescent with trim cap letters and the entire outer corner is radiused (inset sign foam) so that it is smoothed and more "pill" like.

Because we are located in a mostly rural residental area, we are not allowed to have a lighted sign..... and limited on size to about 3x5. I am NOT taking a picture of that pathetic thing! We have talked about redoing it, when it slows down and we aren't all on vacation...

That's advice a lot of designers should take.

Hi Shelly - just wondering if those letters are face it only, or do you have some halo lighting casting onto those white backer panels?

My guess ---------------------- is they aren't lit ?????????? If they are, doesn't appear to be any drain holes. Do I win the prize?

I think I see drain holes, it looks very faint but I think I see some.

    • Paul;   Your statement   " When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? "   You are exactly on point. How the hell do I know for sure when you have been paid? This comes after being so stupid that I would agree to be paid when paid in the first place.   I just received a query from "FacilitySource" to become a contractor. They have just been consumed by CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis), a large player in the real estate/ real estate management area. I received a solicitation sheet from them and I won't even insult the intelligence of those on this venue by posting it.   The response section was very definite but the payment portion was somewhere out in the Cosmos. You could  be  paid only if they got paid and then pay you at some mysterious date in the future. They had a list of discounts that they wanted to take under circumstances that were totally unverifiable. You also had to sign away all rights as a contractor while shielding them from everything. Incredible............   But if I were to sign this nonsense, I would be getting exactly what I deserve.   Just for the record, they intimated that they wanted me to provide service to Lowe's, along with some other familiar major accounts in my area.   I politely refused the offer but thought to myself that if a person made me an offer like this to my face I would have dispensed justice with a broken car antenna right on the spot.   Peace out!  
    • Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone  And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer  Plus a lot of other nonsense    When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me                  Hello,   I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out.   Thank you!   Dominique DiPalo Vendor Relations RKB Maintenance Solutions 330 Motor Parkway, Suite 306 Hauppauge, NY 11788 P:  516-612-7821 x 413| F: 516-706-1393 E:  DDiPalo@rkb247.com | W: www.rkb247.com
