Church Podium Backlit Sign

Custom Church Podium Backlit Sign

Our team was recently commissioned to make an internal lighted sign for a church podium. We have a wide variety of commercial sign materials in stock, and welcomed the opportunity to mix-n-match for a unique piece of art.

Here is the first layer of our our design, a laser cut blue acrylic emblem:

And our next level was applied to the top of the blue acrylic. We carry ACM (aluminum composite material) which is basically two thin sheets of aluminum sandwiched over a solid PVC (plastic) core. ACM comes in a wide variety of finishes. For this project, we chose brushed gold:

The next level is tricky. We digitally printed the graphics on clear #M laminate, then applied to white acrylic. The shape was cut to match the first two layers, which will knock out the lighting (just wait):

We then produced an ACM backboard in brushed silver aluminum. This gave the sign something the assemble can mount to the podium, and will reflect light from the LED lighting we integrated in the lightbox cabinet:

While we can’t show you how we make the lightbox cabinet as it is proprietary, it’s basically a custom shaped box that holds low-voltage lighting. Here is a picture of the completed assembly as we tested it before shipping to the customer:

Church Monument Sign – Update to a modern design

Church Monument Sign – Update to a Modern Design!

The Gainesville Church of the Nazarene had an entrance sign monument for their church that was old and “people honestly didn’t look at when driving by.” This was a shame in a traffic area of over 25,000 vehicles passing per day.

Here is a picture of the original church sign. It was an internal lighted sign cabinet with changeable reader board for weekly messages.

The City Ordinance had changed since the original 16′ tall sign was built. There is a new Code restricting height to 10′ tall. As the church was on a budget, we suggested removing everything except the brick base, and recycling the masonry as the base for the new structure. This saved removal of masonry, new concrete footing, and footing inspections. Here is the design we came up with:

And here is how we avoided expenses of removing the old masonry, which saved the church several thousand dollars.

We made this modern church sign with faux wood grain texture at the top. The sign monument graphics are embossed up, with a brushed aluminum logo in multiple depths of dimension.

The existing sign was removed, and all the metal taken to their local recycling facility.

The existing brick was a couple decades old, so they cleaned it with a pressure washer. The entire structure was painted a solid brick color to conceal all of he aging and imperfections in the masonry.

The new unit was then simply dropped on top of the brick ‘plug’ and all was complete!
