Sign Hinges and Sign Feet in Action

I have been getting much more interest in these products lately. And, here is a sign recently created by one of my customer for a national retailer.

Facts about the sign:

* 1/2 inch white alumacore.
* The sign faces are 36" x 60". The sign faces were cut from 4X10 sheets.
* A digital print was done on the vinyl and then applied to the alumacore.
* A plastic channel added to the edges and clear We used 1/2 inch white alumacore, we had to order 4X10,s for these signs. We did a digital print on vinyl then applied it to the alumacore. Then we placed the plastic channel to the edges and used clear silicone was used on the backside to to secure the edging.
* Then the 12 inch 4-tab hinges were layed out and drilled--if done incorrectly, this part could easily be messed up..
* After the 12 inch 4-tab hinges were put on, the sign feet were installed. The chain link was also added during this step to keep the A-frame from being spread to far apart..
* The individual holders were applied with double sided banner tape.

These signs are on display as you walk in the the door retail establishment in Clarksville In. After approvals, it is very likely this customer will get the opportunity to make more of these signs for them. These do cost quite a bit more then the cardboard stand-up signs they were using, but they are not falling over and getting torn up. AND, these are a VERY customizeable solution.

Interested in talking to this sign company.....

April 2009 ISA Show

I attended the ISA show in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago. And, although I don't do lots of customized products, here are some things are noticed (or was told):

  1. Putting out more tables in what was previously booth space keeps attendees from realizing there are fewer exhibitors this year.
  2. If you see an LED exhibitor carrying a soldering iron when they are setting up their displays, you may want to think twice before buying their product.
  3. It is good to see existing suppliers and see what new products they have available. (i.e Agile Displays)
  4. If I did do customized products at my office, I could spend LOTS of money having the best equipment.
  5. As a result of the show, I have found a few new suppliers. And, they will be finding their way up on the site in the coming weeks/months.
  6. If Las Vegas is cold out (in the 60s-which it was the first day), you won't want to be by the pool and will spend more time at the show.
Posting has been difficult this year. In the coming weeks, I will attempt to be MUCH more disciplined. Let me know of any questions you may have. Andy
