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.
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
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.
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.
Jagare Ridge Edmonton
Part of a comprehensive exterior signage package for our friends at Melcor Developments, we manufactured three (3) freestanding multi-tenant pylons, one (1) “L” shaped display, and two (2) single-sided pillar entrance signs for the new Southwest Edmonton property.

Completed Single-Sided Pillar Display
A great example of truly custom signage, this development entrance sign for Copperhaven in Spruce Grove, AB, consists of a steel background panel that our team oxidized in-house to achieve a one-of-a-kind “rust-wash” finish, to which we installed brushed bronze letters.
