Located at 6881 Stanton Avenue in California’s Buena Park, Street Smart Insurance Solutions was in need of an exterior sign. Up to this point, the company had relied on a weathered banner that identified their suite at the location. Yet the city code enforcement office served a notice on Street Smart Insurance that they would be fined for keeping the weather-beaten signage in place. Unwilling to pay the penalty, the company contacted Superior Signs and Graphics for a new sign.
Remembering how quickly the last banner became weathered, the company was hoping for something a bit more durable. We did a site evaluation and found that a 6mm aluminum composite sign would be the most cost-effective solution for an area that needed to meet all the spatial requirements the storefront’s facade presented. The choice of aluminum was easy. For affordable exterior signs Buena Park, CA, business leaders frequently rely on aluminum as the base material. It is hardwearing and virtually indestructible by sun exposure or strong winds.
Adding the company’s information was easily done with the use of a vinyl print. Placed directly onto the aluminum composite, we also laminated the sign with a 3M UV protecting coating. This laminate will protect the sign’s blue and green colors from fading in the strong Southern California sun. When paired with the sturdy aluminum base material, the print alone should last at least five years in full sun exposure. When it comes time to replace the print, we only need to replace it with a new print rather than a completely new sign.
By the way, this choice of the aluminum substrate also benefits a company that undergoes change. If Street Smart were to decide on a change of signage, we could simply create a new print cover for the sign and install it. This could be done for less than half the cost of a new sign. If you believe that aluminum composite exterior signs are for you, consider that you will be in good company. Here is why:
