Rockstar of the Quarter:  Tracy Burkel

Rockstar of the Quarter: Tracy Burkel

And Creative Sign Rockstar of the Quarter goes to…. Tracy Burkel!

Position:  Senior Project Manager

Trait of Extreme Awesomeness:  Identity

What her co-worker has said about her:  “Tracy is truly a joy to be around and do work for.  Her always appreciative words make me want to strive to do better whenever I am working with her.  She’s professional, thorough and always willing to answer questions.”

 

Tracy joined the Creative Sign team in May of 2016 when Creative Sign was in a time of growth and transition.  We were in the midst of expanding our building and staff to accommodate our large increase in customers and projects.  Tracy’s ability to balance many duties and sign packages at once made her an immediate help in managing ADA jobs in that expanding department.  As the ADA Department grew (largely due to Tracy’s awesome customer service and methodical handling of projects), Tracy was able to bring new and exciting prospects to Creative Sign.  Her hard work, extremely friendly personality, and outstanding organization even landed her on Creative Sign’s Wall of Fame in 2019 and 2020 for sales over $500k and $750k.

 

Tracy is fearless in tackling any project and dedicated to giving our customers the best in quality and service.  For these reasons, Tracy is the perfect Creative Sign teammate to represent the trait of Identity.  She is a Creative Sign ambassador.

 

Congrats, Tracy!  Like your fellow Sign Nerd said, “Tracy is long overdue for the Rockstar Award!!!”

Happily Ever After Animal Shelter Sign Dedication

Happily Ever After Animal Shelter Sign Dedication

We are proud to be apart of so many great things that happen at animal shelters Happily Ever After (HEA). We previously donated signage at their Green Bay location, and are honored to have been apart of another donation at their Clintonville location. Their newest signage was donated by our very own Sign Consultant Kelli Lax, on behalf of Creative Sign Company, to honor volunteer Dean Ekberg as he battles stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Dean is in our thoughts as he undergoes more treatment for his cancer, but his legacy is now available for all to see who visit Happily Ever After.

Ear Saver Donations Surpass 13,000!

Ear Saver Donations Surpass 13,000!

 

Creative Sign is proud to say we’ve produced and now donated over 13,000 of our ear savers!

When Todd’s niece (who is a nurse located in Missouri) first contacted us asking if we could come up with something to relieve the pressure on her ears from wearing her mask at work, we had no idea the need businesses would have for them. Our first attempts were to donate the ear savers to healthcare workers, and when the news stations got ahold of us for a story we were soon to find there were many other businesses that had a need for them as well. We’ve now donated to over 50 hospitals and clinics, nursing homes, hair salons, tattoo parlors and retail workers all across Wisconsin to California, Colorado, Florida and more! The Creative Sign team is honored we were able to take part in something to help others during the Covid 19 Crisis. Please contact us if you are in need of ear savers.

And PLEASE thank an essential worker in your life!

2019 Watchfire Gold Award Winner: Drews True Value

2019 Watchfire Gold Award Winner: Drews True Value

We are proud to see our 2019 Watchfire LED Sign Awards Gold Winner in print!  Thank you to Drews True Value of Port Washington, WI for an excellent project and thank you Watchfire LED for such a quality product and excellent service!

 

 

Their signage goals were initially identified with the help of Sign Consultant Jan Padgett-Werdeo and the initial design concept was created on 11-14-17 by Creative Sign Company’s Bill Vandermause and honed in over the next two months.

Drews True Value was looking for a high end and creative monument, using real masonry, to compliment their business.  The asymmetrical 11′-4″ x 10′-9″ monument features a 6′ x 4′ 10mm resolution full color Watchfire message center hanging flagmounted below a vibrant red cabinet with push thru acrylic logo.  Oversized HDU hex bolts fit the business’ look and the message center is used to advertise everything from True Value paint to their countless fastener options.

“Before our new monument sign,” said owner Paul Drew, “our sales had been flat and our customer count had been down.  In mid May our sign was installed and we immediately saw an increase in both sales and customer count.  By the end of the year, we had enjoyed a 7% increase in sales.  A great example of how drastically our sales changed when we used our Watchfire message center to advertise is our MS250 Stihl chainsaw.  We sold three in a year.  Then we advertised its new new sale price on our EMC and sold 10 over the next 10 days.  It’s clear to me that people see it and respond immediately.”

“We show an image of a type of flower we have in stock, broadcasting that it attracts hummingbirds, and they sell out immediately!  Recently, with the snow and ice, we advertised that we had rock salt and ice melter in stock and the response was instant.”

“What I like best about our Watchfire message center,” continued Drew, “is that it’s easy to use.  We download a logo of a product we sell or upload a photo of the type of plant, and with the wireless connection, it’s out there instantly.  It’s instant communication with current and potential customers.”
