SCOPE OF WORK: LOBBY SIGN AND INTERNALLY ILLUMINATED EXTERIOR SIGN FACE LIT LETTERS WITH HALO DIAMOND AND STARS
We worked with Signature Inn’s team from Denver, CO for six months and had created lobby signage that met their criteria.  The design elements of the “Signature” sign consisted of installing it on top of one diamond in the middle and two stars, one on each end.  The interior lobby sign was made of ¼” and ½” thick aluminum.  For a dimensional look, the diamond and stars were mounted with ¼” spacers and the “Signature” sign was mounted with ¾” spacers.  The exterior sign was designed in the same manner as the lobby sign but an illuminating element was added.  The diamond and stars were rear lit internally, illuminated with a 1/8” thick white reflective surface.  The “Signature” sign was internally illuminated face lit letters.
NEON LETTERS AND LIGHTING
SCOPE OF WORK: AWNINGS, BLADE SIGN, VINYL GRAPHICS, TRIMLESS LETTERS AND LOGO
We designed, fabricated and installed new signage such as vinyl graphics and awnings for TableTop in San Francisco, CA.  The double-sided blade sign is internally illuminated with push through acrylic letters and logo.  Mounted above the main entrances are custom aluminum awnings with down lights.  The main signs are internally illuminated with RGB lighting.  The trimless, push-through letters and logo signage are internally illuminated and mounted to a custom designed raceway.  The 285 linear feet of brick-designed, vinyl graphics were installed on the building fascia.
INTERNALLY ILLUMINATED REAR LIT STAINLESS STEEL LETTERS AND LOGO
SCOPE OF WORK: BRUSHED STAINLESS STEEL LETTERS, EMBEDDED INTERNALLY ILLUMINATED LOGO, CUSTOM HANGING SIGN WITH INTERNALLY ILLUMINATED LETTERS
The brushed stainless steel letters and logo are 0.25” thick and were mounted on the ceramic tile with studs.  The main signage is internally illuminated 1.5” thick embedded letters and logo which were mounted onto a steel beam.  The logo was mounted to the ceiling with hidden mounting fasteners and custom stainless steel bracket above the entrance.  The 1” deep illuminated letters were mounted on the internally illuminated embedded interior hanging sign with studs.  The on-and-off switch is behind the hanging frame where the ballast and wiring harness are hidden.
EMBEDDED LED FACE LIT LETTERS
SCOPE OF WORK: INTERNALLY ILLUMINATED SIGN AT ENTRANCE, BRUSHED LOGO NEAR RECEPTION DESK, NEON LOGO MOUNTED TO BAR SHELVING, VINYL LOGOS ON WINDOWS
Above the main entrance doors is a 7’ x 4' internally illuminated sign.  The vinyl sign face was applied on the first surface exterior which is above the main entrance doors.  The sign cabinet is internally illuminated and was mounted behind the vinyl sign face from the interior of the restaurant.  The 0.5” thick brushed brass logo with sandblasted edges were mounted on sheetrock wall with studs and silicone.  The 36” high x 5” deep neon letters were mounted to the shelving above the bar.  Vinyl logos were mounted to the second surface of the restaurant windows.
