Eye-Catching Facility Signage in Lilburn, GA for Parkview Football

Facility Signs - Room-Marker for Parkview Football

Facility Signs – Room-Marker for Parkview Football

If you’ve followed Georgia High School football for any significant portion of the last twenty or so years, then you are no doubt familiar with Parkview Football.  Parkview’s football history includes a dominating 46 game winning streak that ran from 2000 to 2003, culminating in three consecutive state championships in Georgia’s largest classification.  With four total state championship over the past twenty seasons, Parkview owns a lofty place among the top programs in recent Georgia High School football history.

This past fall, Parkview Football moved into their new fieldhouse.  Before the move, Head Coach Eric Godfree called on Big Mouth Signs to design and produce a series of facility signs that would serve as markers for the rooms in the new building.  This new fieldhouse includes a Varsity Locker Room, Freshman Locker Room, Head Coach’s Office, Assistant Coaches’ Office, Pro Room, Training Room, Multi-Purpose Room, and Equipment Room.

Before beginning a facility sign project, we feel it’s important to visit the site.  There are two primary reasons we insist on doing this.  First, we need to get a feel for the project.  Which colors should we use?  Which colors should we avoid?  For this project, Parkview’s school colors are orange and white.  However, blue has long been used as an accent color.  The second reason for performing a site visit has more to do with the physical characteristics of the building itself.  It’s important before designing a series of facility signs to include details as to the amount of space we have available for each sign.  How large does the text need to be for readability?  A site visit provides important information as to the best color choices, proper materials, and ideal mounting options.

Once the site visit was complete, several design concerns were made clear.  First, the new facility room-marker signage for Parkview Football would need to attractive, yet durable and economical.  Second, the background of each sign needed color.  Third, we needed to keep the signs simple, with an emphasis on the Parkview Panther paw logo.  Finally, we needed to keep the signs consistent both in size and design.

The next phase in the Big Mouth Signs process is the design process.  Working with the Parkview Football staff, we developed a design that consisted of 3/16” thick clear acrylic, with a digital print graphic applied to the second surface.  The digital graphic features an orange background in the primary school color, with a subdued or faded orange paw logo.  The graphic has a white paw graphic outlined in blue in the foreground, a nod to the white paw logo on the team’s orange helmet.  A layer of white vinyl would then serve to protect the printed graphic.  Finally, the text portion of the layout would consist of white raised lettering.  The end result was a clean look that immediately catches your eye.  The design approval came quickly, and we were ready for production and installation.

 

Big Mouth Signs appreciates the opportunity to serve the Parkview community.  The facility room marker signs were the most recent of many projects we’ve produced for Parkview High School, the Parkview Community School, and for a variety of Parkview booster organizations.  We also appreciate the opportunity to provide services to a variety of other Gwinnett County Schools, including the following;

Channel Letter Sign Re-branding Project in Atlanta, GA for Pearle Vision

Channel Letter Sign Re-Branding Project in Atlanta, GA for Pearle Vision

In September of 2013, after more than fifty years as an icon in the eye care industry, Pearle Vision announced a completely remodeled store design and new brand logo.  The unveiling of the branding plan included significant changes to the brand color palette and a new brand logo.  Parent company Luxottica Retail of Mason, OH unveiled the new branding plan with an announcement at their licensing conference in April of 2013.  As franchise renewal agreements were signed, new remodels were scheduled.  From there, the transition from the old Pearle Vision to the new was on!  Storefront and interior signage would need to be transformed!

Pearle Vision was founded in 1961 by Dr. Stanley Pearle, with a vision to provide “the convenience and expert guidance of an eye care professional right in your neighborhood”.  From that humble beginning in Savannah, GA, Pearle Vision has grown to include more than 610 optical centers, providing on-site prescription eyeglass fulfillment and the “biggest selection of designer frames in town.”  The new brand logo represents a fresh look, while still reflecting on the company’s heritage.

The re-branding process for the Pearle Vision locations in Metro Atlanta began roughly 4-6 months later at the Canton Mill Shopping Center.  When it came time to begin transitioning the Canton location, the local franchisee chose Big Mouth Signs for their help and expertise in storefront signage and interior graphics.  Project specification documents were issued and the site visit process was initiated, followed by the sign permit process and consultation with the property management.  The conversion plans called for front-lit channel letters (direct-mounted to the building façade), with a new eyeglass logo and dimensional lettering “Est. 1961” of flat-cut aluminum for the store exterior.  The store interior would receive new translucent vinyl window and wall graphics, as well as a custom-built aluminum logo sign cabinet.

In addition to the Canton location, we’ve completed projects for the Pearle Vision optical centers in Gainesville, GA, Cartersville, GA, and Austell, GA, with preliminary plans in place for several additional locations.  So why – – with more than 670 sign companies in the Atlanta area – – did Pearle Vision choose  Big Mouth Signs?  We like to think the answer has everything to do with history.  Big Mouth Signs has developed a reputation for excellent customer service.  We conduct site visits to make sure the building dimensions are accurate.  We handle our own permitting, to insure a smooth permit process with minimal delays.  We use only the best materials, and we follow specs to the letter.  If you are old enough, you might remember the TV spots that featured a red-headed, freckle-faced boy, maybe around seven or eight years old, striking out as his father watched from the bleachers?  Dad saved the day by taking his son to Pearle Vision, music playing in the background, with the words, “Nobody cares for eyes more than Pearle”.  We like to think that’s the kind of sign company Pearle Vision was looking for, a company that would treat each optical center like their sign project was the most important one they were working on.  Maybe we are your kind of sign company too…

Innovative Office Signage in Columbus, GA for Path-Tec 

Sometimes, it’s the little things that matter most.  The right office signs, including lobby directories, wayfinding signs or directional signs, office markers, conference room signs, etc., are like that accessory that doesn’t seem so important until you take it away – – the set of diamond stud earrings with the little black dress, or the gold cuff links with the black tuxedo.  And so, at Big Mouth Signs, we understand the finishing touches are important.  That’s why we provide a variety of outstanding office signage options from top manufacturers such as Modulex, Arris, Vista System, and Sign Pro Systems.  That’s why we’ll also take the time to meet with you, so that we can get a feel for your organization – no matter how small – and the environment you are trying to create.

In today’s increasingly complex and complicated world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the information flowing back and forth.  We get so focused on the communication flow – – the impressions that are being created outside our four walls.  While that communication, and those impressions are obviously important, what about the impressions –  the environment – that is being created inside those four walls?  Have you considered the effectiveness of your office sign system?  When you hire a new staff member, does it take days, or weeks to recognize them with a name plate for their desk or work station?  Is it easy to tell if the conference room is available for use, or if someone has already scheduled a meeting?  How easy is it for a new employee to find their way around?  When you promote someone, how quickly can you recognize them for their promotion with a new office marker?

Arris Sign Systems offers an outstanding selection of office environment signs – – from desk and workstation signs to wall signs, directories, and overhead signs.  Arris offers a variety of freestanding signs as well.  It’s the outstanding simplicity of the system that makes it both attractive and cost effective for any office.  The individual frames that are part of the Arris Sign System can be customized through the use of Arris’ Accents decorative backers.  Arris’ design templates make printing and changing frame inserts a snap – – no need to wait days or weeks to recognize new staff members and promotions!

It’s the look and flexibility of the Arris product that resulted in Path-Tec, a Columbus, GA-based specimen management solutions provider.  When Path-Tec made plans to move into their new location, they turned to Big Mouth Signs to provide office environment signage solutions that fit their culture, and their budget.  What they needed was an effective office sign system that was attractive.  As a growing and vibrant company, their new office sign system needed to be flexible, with easy-to-update inserts.  It needed to be modular, so that as the company continues to grow, work station signage complimented office signage, directory signage, and even the signage in the reception area.

It’s been said that interior office signage isn’t for your customers, it’s for your employees.  Obviously, your lobby sign is a key component to any business message – – it provides a value message that cannot be overstated.  But, what about the signs that your employees and staff walk by every day, signs your customers may never see?  Your office sign system is a key part of that environment, and the messages formulated and delivered there.  Regardless of the type of business, messages are being conveyed every day, even when no one else is around.  What messages are being conveyed inside your four walls?

Based in Lilburn, GA, we proudly serve the Atlanta metro area with quality signage solutions that help your business get noticed!

Is your old lobby sign slacking on the job?

Imagine, for a moment, that you’re about to give a 60 second elevator speech before a group of potential clients for the very first time.  You realize just how important it is that you choose the perfect adjectives to describe your company.  As your mind flashes through words like “innovative” and “creative”, through “balanced”, “dominant”, and “expert”, you quickly realize that once uttered, you own them.  An “innovative” company has to look, feel, and act innovative in order to be viewed as credible.  The next day, you walk into the lobby or reception area of your business, look at the sign hanging on your wall and wonder if you used the right word.  Next, you wonder if you have the right sign.

Choosing the right lobby sign is like choosing the right suit, or the right dress.  Match the sign to the impression you are trying to create.  Great lobby signs are a focal point – – they make a statement. Great lobby signs communicate without speaking.  Your lobby sign is the 60 second elevator speech that you never had to give.  There’s no need to list the adjectives to describe your business, it chooses them for you.  Poet Oscar Wilde once said, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”  If Oscar’s words hold true, then what impressions are being created when a potential client walks into your business?

At Big Mouth Signs, we believe it’s impossible to build a great lobby sign without a face-to-face visit.  We believe that truly great lobby signs capture the personality of the company.  It’s because of this philosophy that we provide free onsite consultation, including an opportunity to see, feel, and touch a variety of material samples.  We know that a great lobby sign can have a significant impact on your business, and we offer solutions that make sense for your business and your budget.  We’ll offer material options so that you have a choice, and finish options that will make your sign fit in and stand out.  Our lobby sign options include;
