Plaza Tenant Sign Restoration

An old, outdated plaza tenant sign attracts attention, but for all the wrong reasons. See how we take an existing sign with an old tired design and give it a modernized look.

We at Dave’s Signs encourage property owners and businesses to consider a design refresh and sign restoration when your signs are worn or outdated.

Here we restored the Gramar Plaza tenant sign recently in Montebello, and it made a significant impact on increasing the number of customers.

Why Do You Need a Sign Design Refresh?

A sign refresh is a worthwhile investment because it can help you get more customers and stand apart from your competitors. Here’s a look at some of the most important benefits of a sign refresh:

  • Removing Old Design – Old designs can diminish the impact on the sign and make your brand appear dated.
  • Installing New Materials – Signage, especially outdoor features, can become damaged over time. Exposure to sunlight, dust, rain, snow, and other such elements can cause substantial wear. Installing new materials is an excellent way to increase the sign’s lifespan.  
  • Adding Value to the Property – Updated signage can improve the value of a commercial property. If you own a shopping mall and want to attract business owners to set up shop in your property.

These are just some of the many benefits of sign restoration. You don’t need to replace the entire component; you can restore certain aspects of it and still get great results. 

Montebello Sign Restoration

The sign at Montebello was old and worn down. The client wanted to modernize the sign and improve its appearance. After a thorough assessment, we determined that it needed a new frame structure. We used fabricated aluminum panels for the frame to ensure the sign was able to withstand outdoor elements. We added new LED internal lighting components. The sign stands out well at night and attracts immediate attention. Our clients are delighted with the results.

Why Signage is So Vital

There are many reasons why signage is so essential in shopping malls:

  • Brand Image – When you look at logos of established brands like Nike, Apple, or McDonalds, you realize how important those images are. They communicate without any words, and you know just by looking at that the logos what the company sells. Creatively-designed and perfectly-fabricated and positioned signage can help retailers stand apart from their competitors, even if they aren’t a very well-known brand.

  • Visibility – Building/façade, as well as pylon signs, are a must for shopping malls located very close to roads. These signs attract the attention of drivers. For malls that are set back from the road, it takes considerable creativity to develop signage that communicates effectively with consumers, while meeting local regulations.
  • Location – Retail stores today have to deal with the competition at physical locations as well as in the online space. This fact makes it all the more important to have well-designed and prominently placed signage at shopping malls.

Top 5 Things to Look For in a Sign Company

Regardless of the sector, you operate in or the size of your business, visibility is everything. While you can advertise and market via various modern mediums, some time-tested methods continue to be impactful and effective – and signage is one of them. Today, many companies offer these services, but locating one that is credible and able to provide custom solutions can be challenging.

Top 5 Things To Look For In A Sign Company

We at Dave’s Signs have been operating in this space for 20+ years and have the exposure, skill, and experience needed to create superior, stunning, and eye-catching signs. We cater to a diverse set of clients. Our company offers a wide variety of solutions such as monument signs, office signs, storefront signs, window graphics, directory signs, channel lettering neon signs, and more.  

We know from experience that a poorly designed and shoddily installed sign isn’t just an eyesore. It can deteriorate quickly, become affected by the weather, and need frequent repairs. Choosing the right signs can be the difference between an impactful and durable sign and a total disaster. Here are some things to look for in a sign company:

1.) Experience And Reputation – These aspects always go hand-in-hand. The signage company you hire needs to be experienced and knowledgeable and have a good reputation in the market. Make it a point to check the company’s website and their portfolio or gallery.  Also, check online reviews for the company and see what previous clients are saying about their services.

2.) Accessibility And Response – Call the listed number on the company’s website and check whether your call gets diverted to voicemail or you get a live person on the line. It’s best to work with a company that has a solid local presence. Aside from prompt design and installation services, you also need to ensure that you can access them easily for signage maintenance and repairs, as and when required.

3.) High Quality Signage Materials – Make it a point to check some of the signs the company has installed and judge whether they seem to be of high quality.

4.) Creativity – While most businesses provide their logos and some design ideas, credible signage companies also offer design consultation. So, it’s essential to check whether the signs have been designed creatively. It is an indication of their skill and expertise.

5.) Cost – Last but not least, it’s also crucial that you check the pricing structure that the company maintains. Find out what their initial design and installation costs are. You also need to have a clear idea of how they charge for the service and maintenance of the signage.

Conducting all this research and keeping all these aspects in view, will help ensure you hire the right company for your signage needs.

Pizza Restaurant Signs

The restaurant and food industry is highly competitive, which is why you need to make sure you have a strong presence in the market. For example, most pizza restaurants want to attract foot traffic and familiarize customers with their brand. Custom made pizza signs are a great way to do that. At Dave’s Signs, we have installed many of the signs at Ventura County’s and Santa Clarita Valley’s favorite pizza restaurant, Toppers Pizza Place.

Here’s a look at how we helped bring personality and charm to a very competitive market.

Get Creative and Showcase Your Brand

We created many unique and eye-catching signs at Topper’s because the client wanted to showcase the originality and local feel of their brand. Each location has a theme, so the signs are designed to enhance the experience.

Here are a few of the ones we did at several locations throughout the region.

Illuminated Exterior Signs

Above is a channel letter sign of the Toppers Pizza Place logo overlooking the entrance of the restaurant in Valencia.

All locations have illuminated channel letter signs that immediately catch attention and are visible from a distance, both in day or night.

In the Channel Islands Harbor, we really went all out with an ‘Eat More Pizza’ sign. It’s a tribute to the style of signs past: a custom neon blade sign with the arrow leading your eye to the entrance. To top it off, literally, we added the roof sign that can be seen across the harbor. These signs fit the restaurant’s vibe and personality perfectly. It looks like a fun and inviting place to go, doesn’t it?

Interior Signs

Interior signs are often neglected, but they have the most significant impact when the customer is inside your place of business. They can’t see the outside sign anymore, so how do you continue the brand experience when they come inside? With attractive custom made interior signs.

In the Harbor location, we added a few hand-painted wall graphic signs inside to ensure the branding was visible to guests as they enjoyed their meals. “Welcome to Toppers by the Sea” is actually designed after a local neighborhood ad campaign from back in the day. You can see the photo of the original sign in the picture.

Focus on Branding and Personality

Our primary focus during the project was branding. We wanted to make sure the restaurant’s bold and local personality stood out in the signage.

Our expert designers choose the font, colors, graphic style, and sign sizes carefully to fit in with the brand. We also injected some playfulness and personality into the design to ensure the restaurant truly stood apart from the rest.

The clients wanted to maintain consistent branding in all of their locations while giving every restaurant a distinctive personality. Our experts followed the approach and created signs that were unique but still represented the brand effectively.

Customer Experience

Toppers were very happy with the results. They appreciated the unique vibe and personality of different signs designed for various restaurants. They’re also pleased with the quality and durability of our signs and our installation.

Not to mention, service, we are always there for sign service and maintenance when needed to make sure their signs look great as the years roll by.

Rebranding Star of CA Signs

Dave’s Signs has worked with many local businesses over the years. We have created and installed attractive signs in local pizzerias, government buildings, churches, and countless other establishments. Our goal is to ensure every client is satisfied with the design and quality of the sign and get positive results from it.

However, when a business has been around a long time, sometimes it goes through a rebrand to make new again. Same goes for the signs.

What you may not realize is that you might be able to use your existing sign as a base so you don’t have to start from scratch. It will save you money.

We recently did just that with a monument sign with great results.

Rebranding Star of CA Signs

Star of CA – An Admirable Organization

Star of CA is a great local establishment that provides support and therapy services for autistic individuals. They are located in Ventura, CA, and are committed to improving the quality of life of autistic children and adults.

It was a pleasure to work with an organization dedicated to the welfare of others. Our team was hands on deck and focused on delivering the best possible solutions.

Signs We Updated

Star of CA required new a monument sign and window graphic sign for their Ventura office. We had worked with them before and designed their old monument sign. They were so satisfied with the quality of our work that they came back to us when they rebranded.

Rebranding Star of CA Signs

The older sign was a bit dated and unsuitable for modern audiences.

Star of CA wanted something more contemporary and impactful. They wanted a soft halo illumination behind the sign to make it more eye-catching. They already had an impressive new logo for us, so we just needed to create a monument sign according to their requirements. The result was a beautifully illuminated monument sign.

What Did We Do, Exactly?

Rebranding Star of CA Signs

They already had a monument sign, so there was no need to build the entire feature from scratch. We carefully removed the old letters and facing to provide a clean surface once again. After that, we added a new face that fit the odd shape of the previous monument sign and incorporated the client’s new logo.

Our technicians had to create a new access point within the monument for wiring and powering the channel letter lights. This ensured the sign was illuminated and attractive. Our team was able to complete the upgrade and installation in a matter of time. 

How Did The Client’s Feel?

The people at Star of CA placed a lot of trust in our hands when they commissioned the sign for their office. We knew just how important the job was and made sure that everything went according to plan. The clients were pleased with the results. The sign is modern, attractive, and eye-catching. It is durable and relatively easy to maintain, which was one of their primary concerns. They are happy with the results and the feedback they received from their clients.
