Many businesses have been around for a few years and have great original signage that they have had since they opened their doors. Unfortunately, while a business may be growing, the signage that once looked so good can succumb to years of exposure to sunlight, salt air, wind, and rain, often requiring signage restoration in San Clemente, CA.
Years of use can leave a sign in a degraded condition that detracts from the value of a business. However, just because the sign has seen better days does not mean that it cannot be salvaged!
The Starfish Signs and Graphics team specializes in signage restoration in San Clemente, CA, in a way that returns business signage to its former glory. If the sign is beyond restoration, our team is happy to do a full replacement.
Recently, we worked with the San Clemente Little League for their signage restoration in San Clemente, CA, project to replace a large sign that had been in use for over 15 years. The sign was a vinyl graphic mounted on aluminum and had seen so many years of sunlight exposure and salt air that the graphic had completely changed color, and the vinyl had cracked. None of the original artwork existed in a workable graphics file, so we had to recreate the vector graphics of the original artwork. We restored the sign to its original condition, providing the San Clemente Little League baseball team with a great sign that they will enjoy for years to come.
Another example of how an old sign can have a second life is the signage restoration in San Clemente, CA, which we worked on for Del Mar Watch & Clock. This sandblasted wood sign had a front seat to years of harsh sunlight and salt air, being located just a short walk from the beach. The paint had faded significantly and needed some serious attention and care to bring it back to its original condition. We removed the old, faded paint and then primed and painted the sign, filling in cracks and chips along the way.
Sometimes, as much as you would like to save an original sign, it’s not possible or economical to recondition the existing structure. However, you can recreate the sign as close to the original as possible and learn from the original to make the replacement that much better.
For example, Mariners Village HOA in Dana Point had a monument sign marking its entrance for many years. This wooden sign was falling apart from rot and decay, and we quickly determined that a new sign and foundation were needed. Our designers worked closely with the HOA to create a sign that used elements of the original sign and reflected the community’s current vision and vitality. We created a sandblasted wood sign with a hand-painted logo and mounted it with a more durable foundation, giving the residents at Mariners Village a monument sign that reflects their history while providing a brand new entrance sign.
