UCONN FSAE Racing With Unlimited Signs

This year we were fortunate enough to sponsor the UCONN Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (FSAE). This is a student run organization that designs, manufactures, and races a Formula-Style car competitively all from scratch. These engineering students have the opportunity to get real hands on experience.

This year the car they created completed FSAE Michigan International Speedway and placed 20th our of 120 teams. UCONN FSAE also was named the number one team in New England at this event. The team has also competed for a few years at the Formula North located in Canada.10369126_631760390225498_5454019873642856025_n

 

How does it work putting all the logos on the car? Each logo design is cut in pieces using one color vinyl. Then using a squeegee each logo is applied seperately. Our logo was featured on the side of the car.

 

After nearly a year of  design, development, and construction the vehicle has its first test drive: 

Finally the vehicle was unveiled to the public:

How to create a Custom Face-in-Hole Sign

To create the Custom Sign / Face-in-Hole Sign / Standins, we measure the picture of your choice to match the foam board material we use.  It is important to measure because you have to be aware where to cut out the face. For instance the average person is 5 foot 5.  We need to cut out the foam board face around 5 foot.

To do the build a Custom Sign / Face-in-Hole / Standins, we use a 40 x 60 foam board.  We then print the picture of your choice. The print method depends on the color of the picture you are using; if the picture is multi colored, we use our printer with colors are from the x-Rite Color Management System; If the picture is one color, we use our plotter. We then print the custom sign / face-in-hole sign/standins on vinyl material and we squeegee the printed vinyl material to the foam board. Once that is done we cut out the face.  To support the foam board we use easel backs. This will help  the foam board stand up freely.

Custom Sign / Face-in-Hole Sign / Standins prices ranges from $25 for small cut-outs to more depending upon the size.

Depending how many cut outs you need, the turnaround time can be two to three days.

Golf tournament signs are important because it raises money and awareness of a charity and it promotes businesses who sponsored. The business will be praised for the charity and community involvement.

Since there is 18 holes in golf, there needs to be 18 sponsors. Each sponsor or business will have their logo, name, address, phone number and website to promote their business.

Why, Choose Golf Tournament Signs?

Golf is a professional business sport that relaxes the experience professional. It not what you know, it is who you know. Knowing the right people is the main ingredient of any business or profession.

How to create a Custom Signs/ Tournament Signs

To process the custom sign/golf tournament sign, we did the following: Since the lettering of the sign is one color, we use the vinyl cutter/plotter.  To do the processing of vinyl lettering in one color, the sign maker will program the logo /design to the plotter. The plotter will then cut the vinyl material in specific section, then we have to weed it out the material , and put application tape over it. We then put the logo/design on the coroplast material that is used for the custom signs/golf tournament signs.

Custom Signs/Tournament Signs prices ranges from $9 and up depending  upon the volume of signs.

Depending how many signs, the turnaround time can be one day to several days.

Why are Directional Signs important in an office building?

ID-1007701

People like me have no sense of direction.
We get lost in office buildings around the corner if all the halls look the same. Some offices are so huge, with cubicles throughout and bathrooms who knows where.  Everything tends to looks the same, it’s so easy to get lost.  Especially, if you have a job interview.  It’s not enough that you have to get through traffic and be on time for an interview, but to be lost in the building!  Or lost on the floor that you’re supposed to be meeting someone on!  Or lost in the office itself!  Where’s the receptionist, where’s the directory, which way’s the bathroom?  Ever walk into a storage room thinking it’s the bathroom?  I have.

Don’t you wish there were some Directional Signs?  Signs that could guide you through the halls and assist you with where you’re going.

There are various types of directional signs.  First, there’s the exterior directional sign.  The exterior sign basically tells you the name of the building and who the tenants are.  Exterior signs should be big enough so someone can see it from the road.  With my eyesight, the sign should probably be “40 Font”. It should be weatherproof, so it can withstand rain, wind, snow and the blazing summer sun.  Most of these type of signs are placed in front of the building, and possibly in the back also, wherever there’s and entrance.  For me, it would help if there were also directional signs for parking.

Then, there are interior directional signs, usually in the front or back of the lobby.  Again, wherever there’s an entrance.  Interior directory signs are generally used for multi-tenant buildings, to provide a directory of tenant locations within the building.  If it was up to me, the lobby sign should say “You are here” and have a big X to mark that spot.  And, with every step I take, that X would move also.  There are also interior directional signs that provide exact locations of the tenants within the building.  If you are in a huge corporation, one that might consume several floors, you might need directional signs.  These interior directional signs might be on every single floor.   They would be a great help to all people, especially me.

Check Out MacDaddy’s Macaroni And Cheese Bar’s Custom Sign!

Store Front Custom SignIn August of 2011, MacDaddy’s Macaroni and Cheese Bar called us. Their current sign company (not us !) misspelled the word sauce…they spelled it shauce …on a large sign they ordered. When they complained to that company, they were told that it was too late, since they had already approved it. Too late? While speaking with MacDaddy’s owners, we told him that mistakes happen, but it is how the mistake is handled that is important. If we make a mistake, we will do whatever we can to correct it, whatever’s necessary to make our Customers satisfied and happy. MacDaddy’s opened in June. They serve all different kinds of macaroni and cheese, with any toppings you want…..ham, mushrooms, veggies, you name it. People rave about their food and their uniqueness. After a few discussions, proofreading the logos and redesigning, we came up with the exact signs they wanted.

For the exterior sign, that can be seen from Route 25, we used an exterior illuminated lighted sign. It has a translucent acrylic face with a painted aluminum frame. Illuminated lighted signs serve several purposes. During the day, they serve as exterior building signs that identify your business using big bright vinyl lettering, unique colors, and the logo. It is highly visible, so it can be seen from a distance. At night, the sign with the lights can be seen shining bright with your name and your logo. To create this process, we use acrylic face panel with translucent vinyl or cut colored vinyl. When we use printed vinyl, it’s laminated to protect the ink from weather conditions. We then apply the vinyl to the acrylic face and install it on the light box frame.

Most business put their hours of operation on their windows or doors, so customers can easily see what time they open and close. Some stores have a time clock sign to show when they are open and when they are closed. Some have a simple sign that’s a “stick on”, all you have to do is write in the hours. Others have a neon Open sign. With MacDaddy’s, we chose a more professional way, we used vinyl lettering. To do this, we printed their logo on vinyl and laminated it to protect the ink. We cut the vinyl to size, to fit the window. Then we used white vinyl to cut out the hours and days. Then, it is applied to the window with the mighty squeegee. It’s a process, but one that we are very knowledgeable about and take great pride in.

Needless to say, MacDaddy’s was happy with our work. We also did their company vehicles, putting their catchy logo on the sides of their SUVs. As you can see, it was not “too late” to make the Customer happy…..we feel it’s never “too late” to satisfy our Customers.
