Signworld Success Stories: Real Owners, Real Results
Back in 2017, Shine on Signs, owned by Harry and Nancy Wilson in Renton, WA, won a huge contract with Crescent Market of Snoqualmie through an open bid. The project came to Harry and Nancy’s attention through Blue Book, a contractor networking site that was recommended to them through the Signworld alliance.
After a fierce round of bidding, the client chose Shine on Signs because they could create the entire sign package, and in a short amount of time, while also handling all the permitting.
In this case, Harry and Nancy’s competitive advantage came down to the power of the Signworld package. Our training, technology, and professional network of vendors, suppliers, and fellow owners meant that the entire job could be created in-house in a fraction of the time quoted in other bids.
The client specifically requested new pump graphics, channel letters, window graphics, wayfinding signs, acrylic light panels, ADA compliance signs, dimensional lettering, shelf signage, and illuminated interior signs. And the design ask wasn’t easy, either: the client wanted new fonts with a traditional-but-modern look, natural colors integrated with environmental elements like stonework and detailed waterfall graphics, and to strike a balance between clean modern design and a “tribal” aesthetic.
Putting our training, equipment, and support to good use, Nancy and Harry got the entire order produced and installed to code on time, even though the construction team ran behind!
