S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • January 2017 • 79 face and can be quite slippery and dan- gerous to work on, but this was not the case this time. With the types of materials used, the final product should last for many years with perhaps only the digital print need- ing to be replaced ahead of the rest. It was a fun job, a straight forward installa- tion, and we made a happy camper out of a new client with this custom-built sign. What's not to like about that? SDG The sign was mostly prefabricated and came to the jobsite in five large pieces. All the small elements were mounted in place at the shop. To my dismay, some of the mounting tabs for the oval in the blue back- ground parts were too close to the building overhang, and there was no room for an electric or manual screw driver. Adjustments in their placements were done in the field. Virtually all parts of this sign, which was approximately 17ft long, were dimensional and raised off the surface of the sign. The installation was straight forward, and our client was more than satisfied with the custom sign we built which was not just a typical single surface flat sign.
