A short video showing our flat bed printer at work. We love being able to help our clients that are in a time crunch! In this case we were able to print 100 4′ x 8′ coroplast signs in 3 days and make their deadline.
Charity Golf Tournaments are a great way to help our community. We are proud to be able to give back via the Randy Jones Invitational. This FREE tournament gives the winning team $10,000 to the charity they sponsored. This year they were featured in the book “Golfers Giving Back” noting exceptional golf charity events in the U.S. Thanks for letting us help, Randy!
Many of our business clients have a charity or nonprofit organization they support that helps the community and the world we live in become a better place. These charities need all the help they can get and many of them use golf tournaments to raise funds. Another way we give back is by making tee box signs, feather banners, and logo walls, etc. at a discount. To make it easy, we set up a web page that has everything one could need all in one place. Here is a quick video showing our golf page.

Having spent over 30 years making signs I have found it very easy to spot bad signs, but what makes a good sign? Everyone knows a bad sign when they see it, but what works in making a good sign? First off it has to be readable! Too many signs are designed trying to be cool or hip and the fonts used and graphics incorporated make it impossible to read from any distance. Remember you want your sign to tell people exactly what you do and your offer in a very clear manner. To do that lets go over some of the basics.
1.Use easy to read fonts! If a fancy font is part of your logo fine, but for your message use sans serif type as in helvetica, ariel, or any other easy to read font. Don’t use swirly brush script type fonts to tell your message. They are difficult to read quickly. Legibility is king!
2. Use a contrasting color combination. Black on yellow, red on yellow. Avoid brown on green or any combination that doesn’t give good contrast and remember that just because it looks good on your letterhead doesn’t mean it will make a good sign.
3. Make sure the size of your sign and lettering is readable to your audience. If it needs to be read from the freeway it has to be considerably larger than if it needs to be seen by people walking by.
4. Experts agree that when it comes to signs, less is better. Seven words or fewer, and no more than three elements per sign.
Your sign should quickly and clearly state three important points:
Who you are — your company name and identity
What you do — this section usually highlights your industry or trade, and is given the greatest prominence
How well you do it — a short slogan or company motto might be used in this area
5. Think in pictures. Graphics and pictures are still worth a thousand words! A picture of a mouth–watering cake may make a greater impact on potential customers than any slogans about baking the best cakes in the county.
There you go, some basics to help you communicate your message to your audience to get return on investment! Of course you can always bring your sign needs to us and we will make sure you get an Attention Getter!

Golfing to raise money for East County’s Youth Venture Program! We provided all the signage for this event as a sponsor, and played in the tournament to show our support.
Youth Venture is a free community service program for kids 10-18 that provides a free, safe and fun environment to play, gain mentor ship and grow as young adults.
Each year the tournament provides a major source of the funding for this non-profit organization created by Foothills Church. As one of the most influential youth programs, they have helped thousands of teens in the San Diego/East County area.
