Blanchett Decorators: Neon & Sign Division was founded in 1947 by George W. Blanchett when he bought a used neon-bending machine to service the business boom following WWII, and the rest is history! Our current president, Daryl Blanchett, is the third generation at the helm of Blanchett Neon, continuing the legacy George began back in 1947.

The family aspect of our family-owned-and-operated business is an extremely important factor in our continued success and we are proud that many of our staff remain with us for their entire careers:

 

  • Multiple staff have celebrated over 40 years with Blanchett.
  • Numerous 25+ employees whose knowledge and experience are unmatched in the Industry.
  • Unlike other sign shops featuring “jack-of-all-trades” employees completing every aspect of production, we employ specialized, in-house, tradespeople with formal training and extensive experience in their respective fields.

Our reputation as industry-leaders has been built upon our legacy of excellence. Consistent standards of quality are the first and last consideration of our operations. All design, estimating, drafting, manufacturing, installation and maintenance are managed in-house to ensure quality control, including:

  • Multi-level review of drawings for consistency and accuracy.
  • Written standards are met or exceeded and confirmed with inspections following each stage in production.
  • Partnering with Industry Leaders that stand behind their product and have proven product success.
  • Signage is designed and built with Canadian climate considerations in mind.

Rarely will our Edmonton signs be the cheapest, but our guarantee is that our signage displays will last for the life of your business, and will look and function as great as the day they were installed.

Our Team

Many other sign shops often have “jack-of-all-trades” employees that will see every aspect of signage production through from start-finish. We, on the other hand, employ specialized tradesmen (and women!) in-house that are trained and highly experienced in their respective departments:

Design Department

Signage design is a bit different from traditional graphic design, as you are limited by the products and sizing available. This is where our years of experience really help our team stand out from the competition. We are knowledgeable regarding which products work best in our harsh Western Canadian climate, but that will also translate into a creative design concept that attracts attention to your business.

  • Knowledgeable as to what products work best for signage design applications.
  • Capable of working from standard, supplied architect renderings or creating complete signage design proposals from scratch.
