No matter how much money you spend or how much maintenance effort you invest, all signs will age over time and eventually require replacements.
Take this pool sign for example—even a quality product like this is simply no match for Father Time:
After years of reliable service, prolonged exposure to UV rays, water, chlorine, and other contaminants has left this sign looking rather worse for wear, with bleeding letters, calcium deposits, and pool shock residue making this important safety information difficult to read.
Poor safety sign legibility can cause all kinds of problems, both for resident safety and owner liability, and dirty signs send the wrong message about your brand or facility. Without question, this sign was due for a replacement.
But while some sign replacements can feel like an ordeal, requiring serious micromanaging and seemingly endless back-and-forth to get the right design, materials, color match, and mounting hardware, we saw it as an opportunity, both to refresh their image and improve their sign communications.
As usual, we took care of all the details, expertly removing the old sign and working with the client to make the replacement even better.
In this case, we polished the punctuation in the sign copy and added horizontal lines to clearly indicate different sections and improve readability.
We also recommended the use of aluminum composite materials (ACM), which offered:
- Impressive durability
- Built-in resistance to corrosion, heat, and UV rays
- Excellent customization potential, with high rigidity, perfect flatness, and a super polyester lacquer for ideal digital printing outcomes
- Easy installation, being lightweight enough for a single technician to install without any heavy-duty equipment or mounting hardware
- Low-to-no maintenance
With Houston Graphic Signs by your side, sign replacement is not an ordeal, but a quick-and-easy opportunity to level-up your image.
At the end of the day, the client was thrilled with their sign replacement—or should we say sign upgrade—and with a modicum of maintenance effort, they can expect it to last for years, before needing another!
