Channel Letter : The fix is in – Super Cuts

Posted by Frank Murch | Sep 15, 2016 10:00:00 AM

We do a lot of Shopping Center Channel Letter Sets, but we did not make this one. It is a reverse halo set and the light comes out of the back. The faces are solid and painted red. The signs worked well as installed. It was installed on a white painted wall. Then there was a problemChannel_letters_-_SuperCuts_-_before.jpg

The management painted the wall red. This compromised the sign. Red contrasts with red, well…. Not at all. Suddenly a sign that worked well, had impact and stood out – didn’t.

Signs for San Diego refaced this sign. In this case the red painted faces were resurfaced in white vinyl. The original was painted and the fix was in vinyl

Vinyl vs. paint. Years ago there was no contest. Paint was better than vinyl. But that was years ago. Today the vinyl films are much improved. Vinyl is used in car wraps, on posts, for sign faces on buildings and in a lot more. It has some advantages. Vinyl can be applied much easier on a ladder or from a bucket truck than paint. Paint being a liquid, is best applied in a paint booth. That means taking the letters down, taking them back to the shop and refinishing them, only to return and reinstall. Possible, but expensive, time consuming and unnecessary. Channel_letters_-_SuperCuts_after.jpg
