When our Chamber of Commerce needed a new sign, they talked first with us because we are members. We’ve belonged to the Chamber for years. It has been good for our business because it connects us with the local business community.
They needed a new double-faced sign to fit an existing mounting, and wanted something dimensional. They wanted a clean design that would identify their location, and they wanted it to be durable. We discussed budget and they waited until they had the funds for the project.
