Sometimes, business comes from having a great experience with a vendor. A case in point is HOSE-MAN at 14525 Firestone Boulevard. A few months ago, I went to this company to buy some hose for the shop’s CNC router and its dust abatement system. Recently, we received an online message from the company, requesting that our shop assist with new sign face graphics and LED lighting in La Mirada CA.
Upgrading an Existing Company Sign for a Vibrant Corporate Presentation
The client identified several problems with the old cabinet sign. Its electrical wiring was not working correctly, which meant that the sign did not light up. Rather than spending the money on an electrical repair as well as a refacing of the product with a fresh acrylic sheet, we recommended doing an LED retrofit.
Not only would this save the client money, but it also led to a much more functional signage setup. Because the sign is massive – it measures 30 feet in width and three feet in height – the change would be highly noticeable.
Our technicians began the project by dismantling the old polycarbonate facing. Next, we uninstalled the failing electrical wiring. The team then cleaned the old box cabinet and made minor repairs to its surfaces. The new LEDs and their wiring went in next. The last step was the integration of a new acrylic front with 3M translucent cut vinyl for the graphics and lettering.
It is interesting to note that the most advantageous installation angle was from the company’s roof. Because we have our bucket van for these types of projects, it was easy to guide the panel installation. Once finished, the sign was easily visible from the nearby I-5 freeway.
Now, HOSE-MAN can look forward to getting plenty of use out of this sign. LEDs last for a long time and will cause the sign to light-up on schedule. Besides that, they are much cheaper to operate than other illumination options.
Do You Need New Sign Face Graphics and LED Lighting in La Mirada, CA?
If you are still using fluorescent bulbs to light up your signage, you are spending more on electricity than you should. Most importantly, you are dealing with a technology that does not offer the reliability, which LEDs bring to the table. Therefore, more and more members of the business community are now looking for ways to upgrade their current signage products.
However, it is not typically necessary to uninstall your box cabinet and invest in a new one. Rather, it could be much more budget-friendly, faster, and overall more convenient to have our team retrofit your current signage setup. Our technicians will ensure that your box cabinet is in good shape. Many clients also ask us to paint the frame at that time to increase the contemporary appeal of the signage.
By the way, if you are thinking of making other changes to your signage features, we can help you with those as well. Contact our sign shop today to discuss your options and learn more about LED retrofitting!
