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:

Georgia Aquarium Southwest Lounge Graphics

Lounge Graphics – We were recently approached to fabricate and install graphics to improve the Southwest Airlines Lounge graphics at the Georgia Aquarium.

The Georgia Aquarium is currently the largest aquarium in the world. It is a fantastic experience, and we are honored to be a part of updating the environment! Our colleagues at AMP Advertising Agency came up with a brilliant concept. Why not take this boring area in on otherwise awesome outfit (BTW – the largest aquarium on the planet)…

We integrated blue LED lighting at the top of the lounge to simulate sunlight for an added experience – and a great family photo to remember.

As to not interfere with visitors, we were allowed in at closing. We worked straight through the night to be let out at next morning opening. We made quick friends with incredible aquatic life, who were not only friendly, but also VERY interested in what we were doing.
