Textured Surfaces Add Interest to Lobby Signs


Uneven surfaces? No worries! Sign Artist can work with you to find the perfect custom sign solutions. This raw brick facade is at Elmhurst Hospital in Elmhurst, Illinois. It proved a little challenging on sign install day, but the results were stunning. Elmhurst University has a state of the art Simulation Center at the Hospital, where its medical students train. Sign Artist has fabricated and installed multiple signs at this location, including:

  1. ADA name plates
  2. Artwork plaque
  3. Backlit monument sign with push-through panel
  4. Nursing mission statement wall sign on acrylic.

This lobby sign above, over rugged brick, is 5 ft W X 1.5 ft H, made of  3-dimensional cast aluminum letters. Meticulous measuring, precision drilling and positioning, are always needed to obtain the perfect install. A little added finesse was required for this rugged wall,  since every brick juts out at a different depth. The striking bronze-colored letters proved to be a perfect contrast to the neutral earth tones of the bricks.

Sign Artist is glad to help brand the Elmhurst University Simulation Center, which provides medical students with the hands-on training they need, to be stellar health care professionals in future.

New Oriental Grocery Gets Awning

Sign Artist installed this vivid awning at the new 3N’s Oriental Groceries, Foods & Markets Store in Broadview, Illinois. The printed canvas signage makes the business a standout along busy Roosevelt Road. The store celebrates its Grand Opening this Saturday, March 6, 2021! It officially opens to the public at noon, so go check out this great groceries/carry out food destination at 1422 West Roosevelt Road in Broadview!

To install the 25-foot-wide awning, Sign Artist designed a custom carrier. Our crew defied the weather, bringing a bucket truck and braving 1.5-foot-high snowdrifts to remove the old awning, with its faded canvas. After Sign Artist cut the old canvas from the steel frame, we mounted the frame on our truck, and carried it away, to be covered in bright, printed canvas. A fresh-looking storefront makes any shop pop.  3N’s Oriental Groceries will be an appealing destination for all who love oriental cuisine. The awning is a great aid for directing customers to the shop, and for attracting new clients.

With Spring coming, it’s time to put on a bright face! Whether it’s an awning, wayfinding, exterior or lobby sign, give Ed a call: 630-594-4185.

LEDs Light Up Lobby Signs

Backlit with LEDs, and custom fabricated and installed by Sign Artist, this new restaurant sign in South Barrington, Illinois, is hung and ready to roll. This fresh branding sports a playful yet elegant shape and color scheme, that pop from the anchor wall.

The result is a contemporary take on restaurant signage, and an unforgettable branding. With its economy of lines, this 3-D sign shows that simplicity can be ultra-creative, eye-catching and chic.

Sign Artist was happy to see Pete, restauranteur and owner of eggology, post his enthusiasm on Instagram, with the comment, “Illuminated sign turned out better than we imagined!” His replies featured a thumbs up and “so cool!!!!” Another post on Pete’s Instagram reads: “Create a vision that makes you wanna jump out of bed in the morning.” Sign Artist is happy in the part we played in adding to the visuals of Pete’s creative and tasty vision! We wish eggology much success!

Secure Your Brand with a Lobby Sign

Sign Artist just installed this lobby sign at Securint Financial Services, Inc, at busy Ellston and Pulaski, in Chicago.  Mounted directly on the wall, this acrylic, matte black sign announces the business brand with impactful, 3-D custom-fabricated letters and logo.

A great lobby sign impresses clients from the moment they walk into your business. With new businesses starting, and established ones opening doors once again, it’s time to review your signage needs. Sign Artist is covering multiple projects for Securint, ordering business cards, and returning to the Chicago office to install privacy film. With its corner location, Securint’s windows are flooded by sunshine and the interested gazes of passersby. A frosted adhesive film that Sign Artist will install on the building’s bank of ground-floor windows, will not only temper the sun’s glare, it will provide a little privacy for workers within. Installing the film mid-line in the window, with uncovered strips above and below, will allow workers to view the great outdoors. It will also give potential clients just enough of a glimpse inside, to pique their interest, and attract a possible walk-in visitor.

Sign Artist can help you transform your business name and logo into a wall sign that shows you’re serious about your business. If you don’t have a logo, or its design needs a facelift, our talented artist/designer Erin can refresh the look — or she can design a whole, new logo for you. Styles of lobby signs range from 3-D letters anchored on walls or panels, to printed vinyl. We can illuminate your sign with LED lights, and add drama to the design. Also, consider the wide range of services Sign Artist provides. You’d be amazed at the vast range of privacy films  available, and Sign Artist happily fabricates and installs unique wallpapers, murals, and exterior and wayfinding signs, too. Call Ed, (630)594-4185, for more information about how to make your business a standout with eye-catching branding and design.

Securint’s Chicago crew is pleased by its new sign.

Privacy, Please! Frosted Glass is a Solution.

This week, the Sign Artist team customized the entrance to Grant Consulting Group’s Chicago office with precision cut lettering and 3M frosted privacy film. The graphics provide brand identity. Privacy film is a great choice for buildings with interior windows because it looks like etched glass. Different degrees of frosted glass are available. It’s a professional look for visitors, and provides privacy and light to employees.

Lobby Sign Makes Law Firm’s Great First Impression

Lobby SignThe law firm of Flaherty & Youngerman needed a lobby sign that would accomplish two objectives; one, to announce to clients when they arrive at the appropriate floor in the high-rise office building and two, to communicate that clients can be confident in the representation that they will receive. They conferred with Sign Artist to create a business sign to accomplish these objectives. Both partners had specific ideas about what the sign should convey, and they were excellent collaborators with our design team. Their new lobby sign makes the law firm’s great first impression.  The sign was constructed with clear acrylic for its base panel.  The letters mounted on the panel have brushed metal overlays and painted PVC backing.  This provides a three dimensional effect that captures visitors’ attention right away.  The business sign makes a great first impression at the entrance of the firm. Thank you for choosing Sign Artist!

Educate Your Captivated Customer

The Vault at the Dump

Business signs educate customers, and The DUMP luxury furniture warehouse does this the moment they encounter beautiful products. The store prepared a showroom of one-of-a-kind fine rugs and informs customers about the quality contents of the museum-like space.  Sign Artist applied a large format cut vinyl sign directly to the wall to create a teaching moment for shoppers.

The Vault” is the gallery name, and we partnered with the talented DUMP marketing team to translate the design into a business sign.  It is approximately 20 feet wide and 20 feet high.  The letter “V” alone is over 5 feet tall!  White vinyl was precision-cut on our digital plotter and prepared for application.  We measured and leveled the sign, then taped the large blocks of text into position.  Sign Artist specialists applied the  enormous wall sign, word-by-word.  Finally, we applied heat to ensure fast adhesion to the painted surface.

The result is captivating!  Customers stop to learn about the exquisite rugs as they enter the gallery, and before ever examining a product or checking a price.

A Face-Lift for Building Directories

Directory signs need updating.  Your customers depend on these signs, especially when it’s their first visit. Property management firm Lee and Associates recently called upon Sign Artist to update a building directory in Wheeling, IL. The monument sign building name had faded and cracked – stains were caused by the nearby evergreens. We applied new precision-cut vinyl letters to give the sign a bright, easy to read title.
