As a valued part of the Blanchett Neon family, we appreciate the trust you place in us and our people wherever we do business together. In the current environment, it’s important for all of us to monitor the rapidly-evolving situation involving the coronavirus or COVID-19, so we wanted to provide an update on how we are handling the situation at Blanchett Neon.

Safety is always the highest priority – it’s part of our core values, and a shared value with our customers, vendors, and partners. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we have taken the following steps to address COVID-19:

  • Blanchett Employees are asked to consistently and thoroughly wash their hands or utilize hand sanitizer before entering any shared spaces, including when entering the facility, before and after breaks, before and after using the washroom, and/or before and after utilizing any common areas which include the boardroom(s), printer area(s), time clock, shared tools, equipment and/or any company vehicles.
  • All staff members that are not feeling well as asked to stay at home and consult with their doctor and with management.
  • Blanchett has adopted a “no hand-shake policy” and would encourage all staff to maintain a one (1) meter distance when communicating with fellow teammates.
  • All staff are required to sanitize their work areas (including their desktop set-up, and any tools/equipment) at minimum daily.
  • All customer, vendor, or supplier meetings at our facility are immediately suspended and are to be held as a conference call or via skype.
  • All off-site meetings, networking events, or other work-related functions will be limited to those deemed essential to operating our business and are to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
  • All staff members that are able to work from home are requested to do so, starting Monday, March 16. A small number of employees will have office access to ensure we can perform essential activities that aren’t able to be completed from home at the moment.
  • All Out-Of-Town or interior installation jobs are to be suspended indefinitely – day trips will be permitted, but all overnight trips will be re-scheduled for a future date.

Despite these ever-changing circumstances, we are maintaining “business as usual” operations under these modified conditions. We are closely monitoring the situation as it progresses and will update our operations as necessary to ensure the health and safety of our employees and the people that we work with.

Canadian Sign Industry Awards - Blanchett Neon

Blanchett Neon is proud to announce that our City of Red Deer entrance signage project was recognized as not only Best Freestanding Sign but also Best in Show at the 2019 BOCSIes – Best of Canada’s Sign Industry Awards. A collaboration between Sign Media Canada and the Sign Association of Canada, the annual awards are chosen by a panel of industry experts.

“This award could not have been possible without our incredible team – we are so fortunate to have some of the best people in the industry, and this win is a testament to their hard work and dedication,” says Taylor Blanchett-O’Donnell, who accepted the award on behalf of Blanchett Neon.

Freestanding Sign Project Background

Completed in February 2019, this was an extremely challenging project given the timelines and amount of coordination required, so a big thank you is owed to the City of Red Deer, Stantec, and all of our partners for making this incredible display the success story it is.

Development Entrance Signs

As a custom signage manufacturer, you never quite know what types of projects will pass through your shop on any given day, and that is one of the reasons we love this industry so much!

Lately, development entrance signs seem to be the sign of choice; freestanding displays built for a residential community or commercial development identifying the name of the property with varying architectural features (think faux wood, concrete, masonry, etc.)

Here are some of our recently completed favourites:

Greenwood at Orchards

Installed for the new South-Edmonton community, these three (3) single-sided entrance signs feature flat-cut-out, painted aluminum letters, and a large aluminum logo with a painted gradient finish.

Not only does the painted finish allow us to pass along a 15+ year product guarantee against fading or UV damage, but also features a graffiti-proof clear coat for simple cleaning if the display does happen to be tagged or painted without damaging the paint or graphics.

Completed Display

Greenwood at Orchards Development Entrance Sign Edmonton



Located in Morinville, Alberta, this custom entrance sign and secondary column sign both feature flat-cut-out acrylic letters mounted to a 24-gauge faux wood panel background.

Careful coordination with the masons ensured the completed sign panels would seamlessly fit between the two stone columns and yet could still be anchored to the lower concrete pad for additional support.

Display in Manufacturing Shop

Edgewood Entrance Sign Edmonton

The secondary column display is similar to the large entry feature in that it also required careful construction to fit the available opening.

However, this featured welcome sign did not allow for visible fasteners and so our drafting team incorporated a hidden bracket to the design for mounting purposes.

Completed Display




This extremely creative display completed for “Leduc’s Newest Neighbourhood” required a bit of homework to get to the finished display, but we (and our client!) could not be happier with the final result.

The “wood” nest behind the display was a first for our in-house signage experts and featured a steel structure, painted in-house by our very own (and extremely talented) painter-extraordinaire Terry.

    BNL Retro Sign Install

    Blanchett Neon Retro Sign Install

    As much as we have enjoyed having this piece of Edmonton signage history in our shop for the last few months, we couldn’t be more excited to see our re-created Retro Sign finally installed at its new home, the Edmonton Downtown Neon Museum.

    Learn more about the manufacturing process for this Retro Sign.

    Installation Day

    Retro Sign Install Edmonton

    The beginning of any installation project starts at our Edmonton manufacturing facility; with crating, loading and securing the display to our flatbed trailer to be transported to the sign install site. With an in-house fleet of equipment that includes three (3) boom trucks, four (4) service vans, a V-Crane, and forklift, any combination of which are used to transport signs from place to place.



    Given the busy downtown location of the Edmonton Neon Museum (not to mention the many surrounding construction sites),Edmonton COR safety additional coordination and planning were required by our installation department to ensure our trucks would have unimpeded access to the site without compromising the safety of our crews, or other passersby.

    As one of our Core Values, safety is the first consideration in the planning of any project; every site is reviewed by the project manager and a site-specific safety plan developed to address all hazards presented.

    Did you know that we have achieved and maintained active COR status for our industry-leading safety program?

    In this case, an OSCAM (On-Street Construction and Maintenance) permit allowed our team to temporarily close the South-bound lane and sidewalk of 104th Ave to safely position the second installation vehicle in an appropriate position to assist in mounting the sign and fully extend the outriggers of the boom truck.

    Hoisting and Mounting

    Upon arriving, completing the on-site safety orientation, closing the lane/sidewalk, and securing the work area, our installation team prepare to hoist (lift) the retro sign into place.

    Blanchett Neon Retro Sign Install

    Blanchett Retro Sign Install

    Before any sign display is built, our production team review the mounting application (flush, suspended, or flag-mounted for example,) of the display and design a welded “lift-point” at which we secure the hoisting cable.

    For this retro sign install, once the hoisting cable was anchored, a secondary tag-line was secured to the display to “guide” the sign into place without any swinging or excessive movements due to the wind.

    Blanchett Retro Sign Install

    The installation of a sign like this typically consists of a four-man crew, each with their own responsibilities; one person responsible for manning the boom & hoist, one on a secondary lift in the air (in this case our man-lift) to mount the display in place, and one or two additional people responsible for manning the tag-line(s) and providing ground-level assistance.

    Once the display is positioned in its correct place, the installer in the man-lift secured and anchored the retro sign to the pre-existing steel structure of the Neon Museum.

    Blanchett Neon installation crews have extensive experience, training, and certifications to safely complete sign installs.

    2017 Sign Professional of the Year

    Daryl Blanchett with SAC President Justin Boudreau & Don Ross

    Every year, the Sign Association of Canada recognizes individuals that have made significant contributions to the sign industry, and we are very proud to announce that our president, Daryl Blanchett has been named 2017’s Sign Professional of the Year!

    In the industry since 1989, Daryl is the third-generation owner-operator of Blanchett Neon, and has served as a prominent voice in the Alberta Sign Industry for many years, including serving multiple terms on the Alberta Sign Association‘s board of directors, and donating extensive time and materials to further the efforts of the Edmonton Downtown Neon Sign Museum.

    Join us in congratulating Daryl for this significant accomplishment!

    Blanchett Neon Retro Sign Reconstruction

    As we began the planning process to celebrate our 70th anniversary, we knew that there was only way to truly appreciate and honour our heritage, and that is through signage! We are so excited to announce we will be re-creating the classic neon sign display from our second location (10224-109th Street), and donating it to the Edmonton Downtown Neon Museum.

    The completed retro sign was officially unveiled with an formal lighting ceremony at our September 28th, 2017 Open House.

    Stay tuned to our Social Media feeds and this blog for the very latest updates on the installation ceremony to be held late-2017 at the 104th Street & 104th Avenue museum.

    Project Background

    Making this idea into reality could not have been possible without a number of great individuals that have our most sincere thanks; Tim Pedrick of the Alberta Sign Association, David Johnston from the City of Edmonton, and most importantly, our fantastic staff involved in the design, build and installation processes!

    Design Process

    The first step was for our talented design team to recreate the sign in a colour format from the single black & white photo we have. Unfortunately, because no records were kept from this time period, this step took a bit of imagination, combined with our knowledge of the most commonly used materials (neon, metals and paint), from the time the sign was originally manufactured. Internally, a bit of back and forth took place over the little decisions:

    • What was the overall size was the display?
    • Was the “Neon” of “Blanchett Neon” illuminated by Ruby Red, Con Red or Tangerine neon?
    • Was the background a painted feature or a metal finish?
    • How will the new display be mounted to the steel structure of the Edmonton Neon Museum?

    Finally, we arrived at the following rendering, and the design was approved by the City of Edmonton and Alberta Sign Association in its accuracy and historical relevance:

    Blanchett Retro Sign


    Technology has changed significantly since the 1950’s when our original sign was produced, and the large wall in our manufacturing facility that was once used for creating layouts by hand is now empty, having been replaced by a large format printer that provides the installation pattern for all custom signage displays.

    Blanchett Neon Retro Sign Restoration

    Projects like this feature a balancing act; we could honour our heritage and utilize historically accurate techniques and processes, or choose more time & cost efficient methods that are common today.

    With a slim window in production to ensure the display is completed in time for the official unveiling at our Open House, we compromised; the full sized template was printed via our in-house large format printer, and all loading and detailing for the neon illumination was laid out by hand.

    Edmonton Neon Museum Blanchett Classic Sign

    Sheet Metal Structure

    Once the neon pattern was finalized and all project materials ordered, the next step is in our sheet metal department, forming the structure and internal support components of the retro sign. AutoCAD production drawings are created by our drafting department and contain all information required to accurately build the display:

    Blanchett Neon Retro Sign Edmonton Downtown Neon Museum


    Our metal department is by far the largest sector of our manufacturing facility. Featuring four sheet-metal journeyman, this is the stage in the production process where all metal components are cut, bent and welded to form frames and structural elements.


    Sheet Metal Department

    August 25 – Update

    Completed Structural Frame


    The framework of the retro sign is completed, and the paper pattern is in the process of being transferred onto the sign structure. Once transcribed, the mounting holes for all neon and electrical components and access hatches are drilled.




    With the frame complete and all access and mounting holes drilled, the next step in the process is for the entire structure to enter our paint booth.

    Retro Neon Sign


    Research & Development

    In the world of custom signage where very few displays or building conditions are similar, Research & Development initiatives are a big part of our manufacturing day-to-day operations.

    For this retro display in particular, the main purpose of our testing was to determine the best method to achieve the background “checkerboard” pattern that would both honour the look of the original display and align with signage manufacturing techniques from the era.

    The result was an sanded “grain” worked into the raw metal finish that was alternated horizontally and vertically and then painted over with a semi gloss clear coat of our automotive grade paint to really emphasize the final result.


    Hand-Painted Details

    Before the days of the application of vinyl graphics, all signage details were painted carefully by hand, and in the interest of remaining as true to those traditions as possible, the graphics for this replica sign were completed using the same techniques.

    We are truly fortunate to have some of the most talented production staff in the industry that are capable of achieving these hand-crafted graphics for projects such as this!



    As our name may suggest, producing neon displays was our primary focus right up until the introduction of alternative illumination sources.

    Edmonton Neon Museum

    No feature on our favourite neon signs would be complete without mentioning what is quickly becoming a can’t miss downtown attraction; the Edmonton Neon Museum. A collaboration between the Alberta Sign Association and City of Edmonton, all displays featured in the outdoor museum have been generously donated by their current owners and restored by local sign shops. These are a few of the classic neon signs currently on display that we have restored or even originally manufactured:


    Canadian Furniture

    Originally manufactured by Blanchett in the early 1970’s, the owners kept the projecting sign following closure of their business in the 1990’s. The classic neon sign was refurbished and re-installed at the Edmonton Neon Museum in 2012.

    Canadian National Railway

    This specific sign was originally located in Calgary, but is similar in style to many displays located here in Edmonton. Blanchett Neon originally manufactured (date unknown) and in 2012 restored this display.

      Edmonton Sign Installation

      For this first look back at our 70 years in business, we will be featuring one of the most important aspects of our process; the installation of custom signage displays and the various vehicles, tools and teams that have helped establish our reputation as a leader in the Western Canadian Sign Industry.


      The Early Years (1946 – 51)

      For the first years of our existence as a division of Blanchett Decorators, all signage installations took a back seat to the decorating work, and the mounting of custom neon signs during this period took place mainly during evenings and weekends when the main business was closed, and vehicles available.

      Learn more about our history.

      Edmonton Sign Installation Vehicle

      Our First Location at 11448 Jasper Ave.

      Following incorporation as individual entities in 1947, business grew quickly and the purchase of a boom truck greatly expanded our sign installation capabilities, and in turn the manufacturing side as well.

      Circa Early 1950’s

      We’ve come a long ways from balancing half on a scaffold and half on a ladder while installing signage; our current safety program has not only achieved COR status, but is recognized as among the best in the industry.

      Second Location (1952-69)

      Following our early success and growth the former facility became quickly insufficient in size and capabilities, and both Blanchett Decorators and Blanchett Neon moved in 1952 to a larger facility downtown at 10224-109th Street.

      Edmonton Sign Installations

      Our Second Location at 10224-109th Street

      The next few years saw continued business growth, as well as the emergence of a formal “Service” department. This new division required vehicles smaller than traditional installation trucks to fit in a wider variety of sites across Northern Alberta, and multiple service vans joined our growing fleet.

      More on Service & Maintenance.

      As we went smaller with our install vans, by the mid-to-late 50’s we also went larger with our boom trucks. The very latest technology at the time featured hand-cranks to raise and lower signage, and this sign installation vehicle was actually still in use for another company in the mid-90’s!

      Edmonton Sign Install Vehicle

      Circa Mid 1950’s

      As we entered the 1960’s and 70’s, neon remained the illumination method of choice, and talented crews with signage installation vehicles traveled across Western Canada as our market continued to grow. The below signage display for Avis Rent a Car was installed in Yellowknife, NWT in the late 1950’s.

      Historical Sign Installation Vehicles

      Circa Late-1950’s

      Multiple vehicles meant larger-scale installations, and some of the largest displays in Edmonton and area at that time were installed by Blanchett!

      Circa 1960’s


      Third Location (12850 St Albert Trail)

      Once again we had outgrown the capacity of our facilities, and a final move was made to our current plant at 12850 St Albert Trail in 1969.

      Freestanding Pylon Signs have always been one of our specialties, and the new, larger manufacturing plant helped expand our production output, with a shift to a greater number of larger displays completed on a more regular basis.

      Modern Era

      Today, our crews still travel across Western Canada installing signage displays for a wide variety of clients. In mid-2017 our newest service van will be joining a current fleet of 3 boom trucks and 3 service vans to continue our proud tradition of safe, efficient signage installations.

        Since 1947, our art department has featured some of the best graphic designers in the industry, and nothing is better than seeing their talent recognized and appreciated by others in the sign industry!

        Most recently, this recognition includes the 2017 Alberta Sign Association Sign Design competition, and we are proud to announce that two displays we completed in 2016/17 were deemed most impressive in their respective categories, and one other received an honourable mention. Big congratulations to our design team!

        Here are our latest award winning sign displays:

        Empire Building – Winner (Illuminated Building Signage)

        Kipling Realty was looking for a partner company to design, build and install two (2) signage displays that offered the greatest exposure within a specific budget for their high-profile downtown Edmonton location, and we were proud to have been chosen for our design of two reverse channel displays.

        For the purpose of this design competition, we submitted the lower display; a 24″ tall set of Reverse Channel Letters mounted to a beam above the front entrance with an over-sized backer behind each letter to achieve the “halo” effect.

        As a testament to our designer, Jeff Billey’s skill, take a look at the below design concept provided to the client, and note how similar it looks to the final award winning sign. Our goal is to provide renderings of every proposed display as accurately as possible to help clients realize our vision for their signage, and in this case, the drawing couldn’t have been much closer to the final result!

        Award-Winning Sign Design

        SK Business Centre – Winner (Non-Illuminated Signage)

        As happy as we are to be recognized for this non-illuminated sign design, it is the project as a whole we are most proud of.

        Starting with developing a new logo for the client, this complete signage program also included an exterior directory, individual channel letters and a freestanding pylon sign complete with an electronic message centre.

        Refurbished in-house and installed at the Edmonton Downtown Neon Museum, this sign restoration project was a true labour of love. From re-painting the damaged cabinet to repairing and replacing the neon tubing, our team brought the classic display back to perfect condition to be enjoyed once again by visitors to the Neon Museum.

        Other Design Entries

        Although these designs did not receive top honours at the 2017 ASA Design Competition, they are still winners to us! Here are a few other displays completed in 2016/17 that we entered in the competition:

        City of Edmonton Signage (Illuminated Building Signage)

        As the first completed tower in the new downtown Ice District, two (2) sets of RGB illuminated channel letters were manufactured and installed by our talented team for the Edmonton Tower. This was one of the most complex and largest projects that we completed over the past year.

        Read more on Edmonton Skyline Signage.

        Lynnwood Centre (Illuminated Freestanding Signage)

        With custom cladding complimenting the renovated building facade, these two (2) illuminated pylon signs offer attention-grabbing exposure to the tenants of the centre.

        Learn more about Pylon Signs.

        Harvest Pointe (Illuminated Freestanding Signage)

        As the fifth freestanding pylon sign we’ve completed for Harvest Pointe in South-East Edmonton, this double-sided pylon features decorative side and roof cladding along with individual channel letters with perforated film that results in the letters appearing black during the day and illuminate bright white at night.
