Making Dreams Come True with Custom Signs

When Stephanie Suderman first approached us in regards to creating a custom sign for the Olive and Rose Flower and Gift Studio in Goderich Ontario, she had a great story to tell. She explained to our custom sign designers how she had dreamt of owing a flower shop. Her dream had every detail about it including the sign that would be on the exterior of the building. The sign was to have a wood backer with the text in Stephanie’s handwriting. While many other sign companies would have only given Stephanie the option of some similar font sets, we were able to make her dream come true.

Handwritten Script Sign

The process was one where Stephanie’s handwritten script was built to scale in order for it to properly fit on the facade sign and the outdoor A-Frame sign. After being enlarged, the letters for the entrance sign were CNC router cut, finished in black and prepared for mounting on to the custom-built wood backer. Then the backer received a custom paint finish to enhance the look of the wood. Once the backer was complete, the text and olive sprig graphic were pin-mounted to it. This added a layer of dimension to the sign, and as you can see from the photo above it makes it stand out from the surrounding signage. The sign for the business was then framed and installed at the Goderich location. It serves as a highly visible welcome to those looking for florist that is stylish and on trend. While being seen from distances to capture the motorized traffic is ideal, Stephanie also needed something to grab the passers-by that would on foot or non-motorized transport such as bicycles or skateboards. This is where an A-Frame, otherwise known as a sandwich board sign can play a big role.

Addition of A-Frame Signage

A-Frame (sandwich board) signs are great at capturing the attention of those that are visiting an area. The Olive and Rose Flower Studio A-Frame was constructed from wood and included a chalkboard. The chalkboard means that the messaging for the business can change from day to day. It can display seasonal messages, hours of operation, events and daily specials. By using the same script logo it adds an additional layer to the branding of the business and by updating it frequently can keep the floral shop top of mind with current and potential customers.

Finding ways to collaborate with our clients on the sign design is something we specialize in here at The Sign Depot. We want our customers to know their input is as important as the sign design itself.

Stephanie Suderman had this to say in regards to working with us

I brought my ideas and vision to The Sign Depot when it was time to create a storefront sign for my flower shop. They were very quick to get back to me with a quote with invaluable suggestions and recommendations to take my vision and bring it to life. They were prompt with any questions I had, and got everything done on time. It was a great experience and I am just in love with my new sign and matching sandwich board, not to mention the town seems to love it too! It is exactly what I hoped for to create the “look and feel” I wanted for my store front. Thank you to Peter, Adam and all that were involved! 

We appreciate Stephanie’s testimonial and loved seeing her post on Instagram.
