The Value of Signs

Signs, signs and more signs are all around us. There are so many signs that we see on a daily basis that many people take for granted how often we use signs every hour and every day of our lives. If suddenly all the signs disappeared, people everywhere would be lost and in...

Rock Solid Idea

One of the great things about Texas is the weather, at least in my opinion. As the old adage goes, if you don’t like the weather now wait a few minutes and it will change. You might wake up to a bright shiny day and by the time you arrive at work you can hear the rumblings of an...

No One Ever Said It Would Be Easy

Sometimes customers have great ideas, but don’t take into consideration, “easier said than done”. A giant brass plaque of your company logo sounds like a terrific idea. It’s bold, it’s commanding, it makes a statement; everything you want from a sign. It also weighs a...

Hiding the Evidence

Some jobs remind me of old gangster movies. Your customer wants a new sign, but upon “getting rid” of the old sign there is evidence of its existence left behind. You can’t have that. No one wants to be reminded on a day to day basis of what once was. You gotta hide the evidence,...

Hey, That’s My Sign!

How do you keep a sign up in a farmer’s field? No, it’s not the beginning of a joke. It’s the problem of the week that we were faced with solving. We install signs all over Texas and sometimes the surrounding areas. Installing signs in Texas can be a challenge at times. The...

Super Skids To The Rescue

Skids, or feet for signs as I like to call them, have saved the day on many an occasion. We don’t always have enough information or the correct information about a site before we go to install a sign. Just the other day, we went to install a sign on what looked like a flat...

Lesson Learned

You know when you’re a kid and you mess something up? Your mom always asked, “Now what did you learn from all of this?” In your head you’re thinking, cover it up better next time or I don’t know, just tell me what my punishment is and let’s get this over. Of course, back then I...

Please Permit Me To Install This Sign

Building and installing signs are two of the biggest aspects of what we do. We are a sign company after all. Most of our signs go up in and around the Houston area, so to say we have a good grip on the permit process is not a stretch. Most of the time, the permit process is...

What Everyone Knows

Ah, the joys of working in a male dominated industry! Most days, the fact that I am female never comes into play. Not so last week. Let’s rewind things a bit. I knew absolutely nothing about the sign business when I started working for this sign company four years ago. At the...

Whose ROW Is It Anyway?

One of the smaller, but still important problems we run into when installing Commercial Real Estate signs is ROW and easements. Often, brokers look at a property, say, ”a sign would look good here”, and send in a request to have their sign installed. While it can be this simple,...

Life Long Bond

One of the challenges we faced this week was bonding. We were working with polycarbonate and Jewelite. Yes, you read that right polycarb, not acrylic. Normally, when working with Jewelite, we are bonding it to acrylic. Automatically, the fabricators pick up the can of Weld-On and...

Signs Should Be A Long Term Investment “Weather” You Like It Or Not

As our city dries out, I am reminded of a large factor in decision making for exterior signs, one that people often overlook: weather. Weather can play a huge role in the longevity of an exterior sign. One day it’s hot outside, the next day it’s cold. Sometimes both extremes...

Edge of Success

Like most successful sign companies, we try to change with the times and to meet customers’ needs. One of the changes we’ve seen come down the pipe is LED lights for cabinet signs. There was a time constraint with a recent cabinet sign job we undertook. This pushed us to look...

Why There’s No Such Thing as a Routine Ground Ball

Ordering a 4’x 8’ internally illuminated cabinet sign that installs in the ground in Rosenberg, Texas seems like a piece of cake, right? That’s what we thought at the time. This is what we do every day of the week. We order the materials (aluminum, lights, etc.), fill out our...
