Talevi’s Sign Restoration

06-20-2014
“When it comes to designing a high-quality, eye-catching sign, many business owners forget to consider the resources they already have at their disposal. Sign restoration can be an extremely effective way to redesign a store front.”

Talevi's Sign Restoration

Talevi’s presents a great example of this type of project. This well-known liquor store moved to the corner of its block, and as a result had the opportunity to take advantage of an opportunity to replace an existing corner pole sign with one of their own.

Just down the street, at their old location, they happened to have a pole sign with a bit of rust and cracked, faded paint. Although the sign was dated, its structure was solid and its shape was familiar to everyone in the neighborhood. It had come to represent the business.

We drove out to Goleta with a bucket truck and crane, cut the sign down, and brought it back to the shop.

We applied rust-inhibitor, repainted, added new acrylic faces with translucent vinyl, rewired, and returned with a fully restored, vibrant sign.

That was only the halfway point in this project. Once there, we sawed down the pole sign that had been standing on the corner, leaving only its base. We lowered the thinner pole of our restored sign into this base and welded it in, then bolted its extra leg into the concrete.

In the end, the cost of refurbishing this sign and utilizing the existing resources available to the business was significantly less than creating an entirely new sign.

Superior Graphic Design for our Custom Signs

Graphic design is not all about artistic skill; many outside factors influence how well the sign will work in its location. We are familiar with these outside influences, so we set out to develop each design to stand out in beauty and function, given each unique location. Whether you are purchasing a pylon sign, backlit channel letter sign, neon sign, or any custom sign, we use our creative graphic design talents to make it stand out. Contact us for questions about graphic design and signs.
