I think the image speaks for itself but a major supermarket moved out of a plaza and had a sign company remove all the signage including the less than 1 year old,  first surface vinyl on (4 ) 10 ft. tenant panels.   Some bright  nitwit  thought peeling the vinyl would be a bitch with vice grips a hammer or whatever he had so he decided to flip the faces but first,  fill in all those white plex colors with red spray paint this way at night when the signs light up, no one will know.  Needless to say I would like to thank him or her for providing us  with new work to replace all the white plastic.

And they probably charged $ 200 to do all the work.  It only cost them a can of spray paint.  S C O R E !

 

Another perfect example of you get what you pay for

We have had jobs that we were told to paint over the whole face and not remove vinyl.

If they told you to paint the whole face Brian,  I hope it was because it was a second surface applied painted graphics like in the picture here.  Otherwise your customer is prepared to loose a portion of his/her deposit to replace the plastic.  I said above the vinyl was less than a year old, you know...easy to peel.  In any case a desk jockey isn't going to tell me, the sign guy how to properly remove their copy from a multi tenant sign.  The property manager of the mall may not appreciate my lame excuse that THEY told me to do it.  Same property manager would always remember us as morons and potentially cost me future work.  The job of the guy who hired us is to write the check so that by the time I get back to the shop I'm already compensated.  I don't do stories, excuses,  30, 60, 90 or 120.
