Our New Channel Letters

Our New Channel Letters

The customer always comes first at Creative Sign.  We’ve put so much energy into channel letters for other businesses in Wisconsin and beyond, and we’ve invested in equipment to make those letters (and other signage) better and more efficiently.  So many gorgeous, lit letters… but never for ourselves.  What’s that saying about the shoemaker’s kid?

We’ve finally decided we need to look as good on the outside as we make on the inside.  Now our lit building letters are an example of what we can produce within these walls!

Wanting to be easily seen from Hwy 41, we maximized our allowed square footage with two big, bold words:  CREATIVE SIGN.

The building, now painted dark blue with white trim courtesy of Griffin Prestige Painting, provides high contrast with the white letters.

The letters are face lit with white LED to maximize readability, but back lit with color changing LED just for the fun of it.  We are a sign company after all.  Blue LED rope lighting will also soon run along the peak and front bump out to showcase one of our favorite accent lighting products.

We are so happy with our new store front that it’s hard to remember how it looked before… so it’s good we took a lot of progress photos.  Thank you to everyone that chipped in between customer projects and helped make this possible!

We are so proud of our welcoming new exterior!  We welcome everyone to find an excuse to swing by, day or night, to check out our new letters and (coming soon) accent lighting.  We love showing off our work!  Call ahead for a tour of the building, or to schedule to meet a sign consultant after dark to see our building lighting up close and see how it works.  We also have channel letter and accent light samples inside, including trimless channel letters.

2022 WSA Design Awards

Creative Sign was excited to join all the wonderful Wisconsin sign companies and vendors at this year’s Wisconsin Sign Association Design Awards, held in Madison, Wisconsin.  So much great signage has gone up in the state over the past year, and it was wonderful to celebrate the triumphs of the sign industry.

A special congratulations to our newest Design Team addition Bailey Schulte, who brought home an award for her first (and only) entry, Redneck Addiction!  What a way to start your first WSA conference!

ADA Sample Wall Complete

ADA Sample Wall Complete

We’re happy to announce the completion of our ADA sample wall.  A BIG thanks to our ADA team for helping produce these samples so that we can show them off to customers!

 

What’s on the wall:

We’ve collected some of our favorite sample signs from the last couple years and produced 30 new signs.  Each of our 10 designs featured on our Custom ADA Signage Collection found here are displayed, each made in our three different construction methods so that you can compare each type side by side.

Our Photopolyer is a hearty and reliable method great for use in schools, hospitals and other buildings that require a vandal resistant solution.

Tactile and Braille is an economical solution with a sharp appearance and wide variety of material choices.

Our Raised Direct Print method is both economical and durable.  Most laminates and textures can be mimicked for a lower cost than traditional laminates.
