Let me preface this post as saying I have a fantastic relationship with my customer, STATSChipPAC, and they truly are great to work with and just super nice people. Unfortunately, they lease their building from a less than desirable management company/landlord.
When we first discussed this project this older building had been leased by another company, the other company moved out and removed their sign. The management company came after the old company moved out and “patched and painted” where the old sign had been – a terribly improper prep. It left a rectangle in the wrong color, on a rounded facade. This is a horrible job done by the building management, and actually makes the brand new sign look terrible. It’s truly a shame, because these beautiful letters are “Halo-Lit” and will highlight the background even more at night.
So, a fantastic lesson learned for your next sign project – a quick prep the background of a sign is just as important as the sign itself, and a properly prepped surface will make a world of difference.
