Amtrak Signage – Camden, SC

We have been awarded the Bid Packages for numerous historical Amtrak stations. Our team of artists and fabricators are perfect for the complexity of these locations. The architects have designed the Amtrak locations to modernize the historical building, brining each to ADA compliance.

These Amtrak Stations now have a separate building for a wheelchair lift, directional signage in braille, automatic doors on push-button switches, and both track and field-side station identity markers to let ravelers know which station they are arriving.

These projects are extremely complicated, using 6063 aluminum (high strength) with Matthews metallic enamels and clear coats.

Here are pictures of the Amtrak – Camden, SC Station after installation. Our company is recognized by the architect and construction companies awarded these projects as a “vendor who has delivered on time, and has not made any mistakes in production.”

We have materials and machine setups in place to produce all of the Amtrak Signage, which we ship nationally, ready to install. We include all of the specified mounting hardware down to the masonry drill bit for easy one-day installation that’s right on time, and right every time.

Some Amtrak Stations require specialty items, such as these bollards. We designed these to fit down into a receiver piece that is installed recessed in concrete. We welded handles for lifting, and welded eye-hooks for the ability to lock the bollards in place.

Rutherford Glen Entrance Sign Monument

We are frequently asked to re-vamp and modernize existing sign monuments. To save costs, we recycle as much of the existing structure as possible.

Choice of font (typeface) is a great way to bring and outdated sign monument structure into the present. Color combinations and finishes can make a sign look like a million bucks. Thus example for Rutherford Glen replaced the black marble tiles with a stucco surface. We then pin-mounted 1″ thick letters finished in brushed aluminum enamel so that they floated above the curved surface 1/4″. This installation method creates a drop shadow behind each character, making the text visually ‘pop.’ The slight contrast between the stucco texture (flat finish) with the metallic silver (high gloss finish) truly reflects the high-end image for this luxury community.

Here are before and after pictures of the Rutherford Glen entrance sign monument:

Watchfire Announces Winners of Third Annual LED Sign Awards

Eden Resort in Lancaster, Penn., wanted a sign that would capture the essence of their property and allow them to advertise their many events and services. The experts at W.J. Stricker Signs, Inc., recommended a Watchfire display as part of a creatively designed and professionally fabricated one-of-a-kind digital sign. The workmanship and creative use of LED signage earned W.J. Stricker Signs, Inc. of New Oxford, Penn., the Grand Prize in the 2017 Watchfire LED Sign Awards.

Watchfire Signs established the awards program in 2014 to recognize Watchfire dealer partners who best showcase the capabilities of outdoor digital advertising. The third annual awards recognize on premise signs installed in 2016 that display excellence in design, legibility of digital messages and advertising effectiveness.
The Eden Resort sign used a Watchfire 12mm, full color display sitting directly below an ID sign made of routed and beveled aluminum, all atop 40-foot-tall pylons. The ID sign’s channel letters on the face are internally illuminated with standoffs, and backlighting is done with LED light sticks.
“Watchfire listens intently to our dealer partners to provide high quality digital signs that can be installed in many ways, so sign shops are only limited by their imaginations when it comes to sign designs that will have the greatest impact. We feel it is important to recognize our dealer partners who focus on promoting the strengths of digital advertising,” said David Warns, Watchfire’s vice president of On Premise Sales. “We all share the same goal: to bring timely, relevant advertising to mass audiences while still maintaining the artistry that has been a hallmark of sign shops for decades. We want to call attention to those who are doing it best, and we congratulate W.J. Strickler Signs, Inc. and all of this year’s winners.”

Mixing Media – Stucco, Stone and Tile Sign in Faux.

This customer wanted a unique entrance sign monument for their senior living community. Everyone on their Board wanted something different, so we mixed them all in a design that complements the architecture of the buildings.

The base is faux rock we produced from photography of stones that are native to the area. This board member we to a local paint store and pulled color swatches of the stone. After four colors were matched, the color name and color code was emailed to us for our artists to match in production.

Another board member wanted decorative tiles embedded in the side columns. We could have matched the design, but the customer was particular about them being an exact match to the entrance gate. The solution was simple – several of the times were shipped to us and we installed them in recessed areas as shown. We sealed the grout and it’s all good to go!

Another board member wanted a very script typeface, so our design dean developed a new logo using a southwestern color pallet. Once completed, we exported the logo for their use on the community newsletter and all print collateral. Some of our designers have vast experience in commercial printing, other on our team are fluent in web and interactive media. In any case, we are here to help!
