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:

Public Housing Sign Monuments

Public housing sign monuments are a typical example of our work. Chapel Hill, NC came to us looking to unify (9) locations for public housing in their City.  As with any City project, there are budget and design factors to consider.

This City had a sign structure height requirement and maximum square footage for the graphics area. We came up with and suggested the falling design to complement each community:

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we brought the work home with us and hand-carved each of the (9) sign monuments in a faux stone pattern:

Once all the units were carved, we went back to the studio and applied hard coat and top coat stucco. We then hand-finished each unit to look realistic by accents each individual stone element.
