Custom 3 Dimensional Signs – Sole Waterloo

How We Brought The Sunshine Back To Waterloo

These are the beginnings on the cold, dark and dreary days of winter.  We decided to add a little sunshine to your life with this post about the 3 dimensional sign required by our client Sole Restaurant. Sole needed to stand out in a very high traffic area so the professional sign makers here at The Sign Depot decided a scuplted 3 dimensional sign would work best in this situation. 

Bringing The Design To The Light Of Day

This sculptural sign was designed to be eye-catching and serve as a wayfinding sign with a directional arrow leading the way to Sole Restaurant And Wine Bar. To make sure that golden sun on the establishment’s sign glistened 23K gold leaf guilding was added to this artistic sign and it brought this transformation out of the dark and into the light of day!

The Light At The End Of The Road

After the Sole sign was fully assembled the next step was the installation of custom 3 dimensional sign.  Getting the proper permits to install a sign is often quite a task but consulting with a professional sign maker familiar with the city’s sign regulations made this install smooth sailing. Soon the City Of Waterloo was all a buzz over the newly installed Sole Restaurant Sign.
