Exterior building signs for Parma OH“I didn’t even know you guys were here.”

“I thought you went out of business.”

“Are you open to the public?”

Do any of these sound familiar? These are just some of the things you might hear from adventurous consumers who somehow find their way into your store if it lacks the appropriate exterior building signage. If potential customers cannot tell where your business is located or that your storefront is even open to the public, then you can benefit from outdoor signage. Krakow Deli recognized their need for new signage and gave Epic Signs & Graphics a call.

A Little Information on Krakow Deli

You feel like you are instantly transported to the heart of Central Europe when you first cross the threshold into Krakow Deli. Named after the oldest city in Poland, Krakow Deli is a delightful specialty store that imports many of its high quality products from Europe to the satisfaction of their customers. They are located on Ridge Road in Parma’s historic Polish Village. They specialize in candy, syrups, authentic Polish meats, cookies, soups, and much more.

Exterior building signs for restaurants and delis in Parma OhWhen such a valued business in the Parma OH community wanted our help making it easier for consumers to find them, we jumped at the chance to do the job. They are a small business, so they were working on a tight budget, so we thought affordable bimetal sheets with 3M vinyl would do the trick.

We used two four foot by eight foot sheets of bimetal for the base of the sign and adhered the digitally printed vinyl to it. We were able to perfectly render the deli’s colors and logos thanks to digital technology. Once the signs were complete, we installed them on the north and east sides of their building, so traffic on the two roads that pass by can clearly see where the Krakow Deli is.

Every Type of Exterior Building Sign for Your Company

If you do not have adequate exterior building signage, you could be missing out on a lot of business. Do not want a bimetal sign with vinyl covering? There are plenty of other options:

New Retro-Style Building Sign Is A Hit In Parma Ohio Remodeled Building

Posted by John Grigoli

Mar 6, 2014 8:00:00 AM

The Polish Village commercial district in Parma OH features a variety of smaller, family owned businesses, medical offices, and other quaint storefronts. In Parma, it is one of the most walkable neighborhoods. Many of the businesses are located in older buildings with a lot of history. Epic Signs & Graphics has a lot of experience fabricating exterior building signs for Parma OH. So, when Ed Martin, owner of one of these buildings asked for our help, we were more than up for the task.

Ed Martin – State Farm Agent

In addition to owning a building in the historic Polish Village district, Ed is a State Farm insurance agent. He needed signs for both his business and the Parma Cleaners, to whom he leases space in the building. After graduating from Bowling Green State University after majoring in Insurance, Ed went right to work for State Farm. Since 1986, he has been one of the premier State Farm agents. His mission is to help people recover from the unexpected, realize their dreams, and manage the risks of everyday life.

To fit the neighborhood and the recent remodeling done to the building, Ed had met with an architect prior to having Epic Signs & Graphics manufacture his signs. Based upon the architect’s rendering, we were able to produce the retro looking sign that Ed and Parma Cleaners required. The sign’s backface is made from 6 mil metal, and the letters are made of PVC. We installed the signs to give a seamless look that blends well with the surroundings. The excellent color combinations have really attracted the attention of passersby in the heavy foot traffic area.

Solutions for Buildings of Any Type

In this case, an architect created the design concept, but Epic Signs & Graphics does have a graphics team that is able to produce signs that go with any building’s exterior décor. Whether it is art deco, contemporary, Mediterranean, modern, neoclassical, postwar, pre-war, pueblo, or any other building style, our team will create signs that complements your structure.

Though it does not get much more durable in the harsh Ohio winters than the PVC and metal combination chosen by Ed, we have a variety of different options you can choose from when picking out property management exterior building signs for Parma OH. These include:

  • Channel lettering – These come in both illuminated and non-illuminated varieties and are constructed from rust resistant aluminum frames. The illuminated channel lettering have acrylic faces to allow the energy saving and long lasting LEDs to shine through.
  • Dimensional building letters – These letters are made from flat cut metal, foam, acrylic, cast bronze or aluminum, or PVC. These letters are extremely rugged making them ideal for just about any signage application.
  • LED message boards – Monochrome, color, and custom LED signs are our specialties. LEDs are a heavy duty way to get messages across that need to be updated regularly.
  • Monument signs – Of all signs, these are the most recognizable. Great for building complexes.

This is just a sampling of the options we have. Contact us today for a free consultation.
