Whether you’re constructing new buildings or renovating existing ones, a large school sign project for an expanding college campus has a long list of considerations. An ideal sign for your building should be eye-catching and informative, letting students and visitors know where they are and what to expect at a single glance. It should be built to last, and its elements should also tie in with the rest of the campus to form a cohesive whole.
And given the other challenges that come with construction, your signage company should make the job easy for you, working with you every step of the way. With all of that in mind, finding a signage company that you can trust in terms of quality and customer service can be a daunting task.
Alabama Metal Art is here to meet your needs, turning your crests, mottos, and logos into custom-made, one-of-a-kind signs that will build school spirit! No matter the size or scale you need, here are five reasons you should choose us for your next multi-signage project.
Our craftsmen have proven that they’re the perfect team for campuses of all sizes. We have a proven track record of creating custom works for smaller schools and large universities alike, making outdoor and interior signs that not only inform but project confidence and pride.
One of our proudest accomplishments is our work with the good people at the North University of Alabama, who trusted us with multiple school signs across their campus. For their athletic department, we made signage for their basketball arena, softball stadium, and workout center, as well as several indoor and exterior signs featuring the UNA Lions logo.
We also made unique signs for their health and well-being center, center for social inclusion, hospitality suite, student government association, and financial aid center ONE STOP. In addition, we provided informational wayfaring signs and features throughout the campus.
The Importance of Cohesive Branding
While it’s important that every sign stands out, it’s just as important that each one maintains a cohesive theme, becoming part of a larger whole. Each sign we created for UNA stands out as its own distinct piece to make sure the location is memorable but uses their colors and crests to tie them all together as parts of the university.
This helps to convey the school’s spirit in more than the usual way of cheering on the team; it tells students and visitors that the school’s strengths and values can be found everywhere on the campus.
To us, “local service” isn’t about location. It’s about how we treat everyone we work with. Alabama Metal Art values building bonds with our customers, and we do that with service and communication that’s open, personable, responsive, and honest.
You’ll get to speak directly with our artisans to help design your sign, with no chatbots, automated lines, or any other artificial degrees of separation. Even if you’re located across the country, we’ll treat you like you’re our neighbors, and work for your school like it’s our own alma mater.
One of the key elements of a good sign is starting with quality materials, and we always make sure to use the best materials for the job. As our name suggests, we do most of our work with metal, in particular steel and aluminum.
A steel sign will not only look great but will last the test of time with little to no maintenance costs. Aluminum, on the other hand, is lighter and more malleable, which allows us to create more details.
We can also layer different materials together to create depth and contrast, add color and vibrancy with powder coating (a great way to show off your school colors!), accent the sign with acrylic or wood, and even use LED backlighting for that extra “wow” factor.
AMA leads you through a tried-and-true process that takes the headaches out of your project. We collaborate with you to design a sign that fits your requirements, evaluating and reviewing our work through every stage of production. And we communicate and cooperate with you every step of the way, from concept to installation.
Most people will never forget their years in school, and Alabama Metal Art wants to make sure your campus is just as special as the time your students spend there. Our hand-crafted, premium-quality signs will make an impression, proudly displaying your crests and colors to promote school spirit. And because they’re built to last, they may even become campus landmarks themselves!
