Honoring The Fallen

KnowledgeByte Main Image

No matter where this holiday weekend finds you, at a picnic, at a parade, in front of a TV watching the Indy 500 or the Memorial Golf Tournament, or at a cemetery remembering a loved one, let us stop and honor the reason we have this extra time off.

A tradition that dates back to the Civil War days, Memorial Day is where we stop, as a country, to remember those who have fallen in service to our country. We are grateful for all the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

We also want to pause and recognize the brave men and women in uniform wherever they may be deployed. Thank you for your service.

In recognition of the holiday, our office will be closed on Monday, May 26th.

Home Loan Display Grabs Attention

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, American First Credit Union, wanted to highlight one of their products. Elsa Montes, Director of Marketing, along with Jared Kennison, Marketing Specialist, worked closely with their Photomation Account Executive, Francisco Flores to create a graphic targeted on this topic. Photomation’s creative team was tasked to create four custom, free-standing displays to draw attention and highlight the Credit Union’s Home Loan products. Point of sale displays were fabricated that measured 84″ inches tall by 50″ wide. Printed on LightJet photo paper then luster laminated and mounted to ½″ Gator board. All pieces were then digitally die cut on our Zund cutter. Each item was applied at various depths ranging from ½″ – 1-½″ from each other.

It’s all too common to hear members say they didn’t know their credit union offered home loans. Anyone that visits American First Credit Union can no longer make that claim! As people walk into the branch they are greeted with large dimensional stands that promote home purchase and refinance loans. These stands quickly became attention grabbers and make it easy to start the conversation about some of the products American First Credit Union has to offer!

American First Credit Union is located in La Habra. A full service financial institution, American First Credit Union has three branch locations and offers a complete suite of financial products ranging from checking accounts to home mortgages.

Do you have a product or service you want to draw more attention to? Give us a call. We’ll be glad to help you design, print and install attention grabbing graphics!

The Outstanding Building of the Year® (TOBY Awards)

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, St. Joseph Cancer Center, is slated to receive the prestigious TOBY Award for the best of the best in commercial buildings later this year. In preparation for the award, they contacted their Photomation Account Manager, Ed McIntosh, to provide a solution for a signage problem on their parking structure.

The problem was the signage materials provided by another vendor was deteriorating causing the sign to look bad and be unreadable. These signs needed to be replaced regularly and the client was looking for a better answer.

The solution was a sign with a brushed aluminum face mounted onto acrylic with painted edges. On top of that base we added dimensional lettering and ADA Braille. Photomation applied VHB tape on the back for easy mounting and Building Services was able to install the signs themselves.

The client was extremely pleased with this durable, cost effective solution. They liked them so much that they have already requested Ed to come back and address other signage projects.

The next time you need a signage solution, call the professionals at Photomation. We’ll be glad to help!
