Benchmark Monument Sign

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Partners Federal Credit Union, needed a monument sign for their newest branch in Anaheim, Ca. Working with Partners designer Henry de la Espriella from Orlando Florida, a concept was provided.

From that concept, our artist Ken Jones created the final construction drawings for the sign and the necessary elements for the sign permit package. Additional engineering drawings were required to pull the appropriate permits for the sign.

This monument sign measured 84″ long by 72″ high. It is made from a fabricated aluminum cabinet with L.E.D. interior illumination. The PARTNERS logo is made from ½″ thick acrylic push thru letterng with custom red vinyl on faces for color. FEDERAL CREDIT UNION lettering is made from white acrylic routed into the aluminum face. Border illumination is done using LED’s in the retainer to match the Partners Federal Credit Union logo.

When our client saw the sign installed for the first time they said that this sign would be the benchmark for how monument signs will be made for the rest of their branches.

Curved Wall Wow!

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Martec Construction, asked us to partner with them to print and install graphics on a newly renovated office floor in West Los Angeles. Working with Photomation President, Charlene Hesketh, and Account Executive, Francisco Flores, architectural drawings were reviewed and materials were discussed to arrive at a bid for the project.

We discussed an earlier phase of this project a few weeks ago. Another interesting part of the work we did was a curved wall with wallcovering, dimensional lettering and an acrylic Veterans Affairs seal.

The suede-textured wallcovering measured 20′ wide by 9′ tall and sets a dramatic tone. Lettering was made from ½″ solid aluminum with a brushed face and polished edges. The VA seal was direct to board printed onto ½″ thick acrylic, heated, bent to match the curve of the wall and attached with special hardware. The client and architect for the project love how well this wall turned out.

Do you have a wall you would like to turn into “WOW!”? If so, give us a call. We’d be happy to help turn your vision into reality. We are Photomation — Imagination Thrives Here™

Moving Message Attracts Attention

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Southland Credit Union, wanted to replace their existing monument sign and add a moving message board to their new free-standing pylon sign. Working with their Photomation Account Executive, Francisco Flores, designs were submitted and permits were approved for the project.

Work started with demolition of the old sign to make way for the new pylon sign. Once cleared, new footings were dug and concrete was poured to set the vertical pipes that would eventually hold the sign. Custom metal work was added to the poles and the moving message sign was added. On top, an updated LED illuminated logo was created to brand the sign to Southland Credit Union.

The new pylon sign with a moving message board was a big hit with the client and credit union members alike.

VA Gets New Look

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Martec Construction, asked us to partner with them to print and install graphics on a newly renovated office floor in West Los Angeles. Working with Photomation President, Charlene Hesketh, and Account Executive, Francisco Flores, architectural drawings were reviewed and materials were discussed to arrive at a bid for the project.

Upon awarding of the contract, samples of wallcovering, lettering and frosted vinyl were made for the VA to approve prior to production.

The “showcase” wall of this project is a wall that measures 17′ wide by 9′ tall. Wallcovering, with a texture called Suede, was custom printed and installed on the wall. Face mounted graphics were applied to ½″ acrylic with polished edges. Each piece was installed using standoffs to create different depths on the wall.

To highlight the goals of the VA office, fabricated aluminum lettering, ½″ thick with brushed face and polished edges, was installed. The letters and the images help remind office personnel of the community they serve. The end result is a very beautiful, and powerful, wall design.

Do you have a wall or project you want to showcase? If so, give us a call. We’d be happy to turn your vision into reality. We are Photomation — Imagination Thrives Here™
