Retrofitting Signs? Smart ways to update what you have

SEPTEMBER 11, 2015| SpeedPro of SF Peninsula

Making the case for a signage retrofit

There are many reasons that existing signs or way finding plaques need to be updated.  A re-brand, perhaps?  Remodeling?  A name change or logo revision?  Or just some fresh ideas for improvement, without an external demand for compliance.

In any case, there are lots of ways to either “re-skin” a sign or in many cases build an insert to an existing sign holder that can be swapped in.

The SpeedPro Center in San Carlos recently helped a long-time client with a variety of signage updates and additions.  The Bay Club | Redwood Shores was formerly known as the Pacific Athletic Club, and we had done a variety of projects for them over the years, mostly in the pool area.  When their corporate parent decided to re-brand all of their clubs as “Bay Club | …xyx”, many of the changes were mandated (and paid for) as part of the corporate initiative.

Of course this left a lot of other items – skinny A-frame inserts for the swimming pool, parking lot signs that were missing or done wrong.  More parking cones; safety signs, traffic barriers, wayfinding signs, and several markers that just needed a decal pasted-over.

We work all over the San Francisco Bay Area, and are part of a nationwide system of SpeedPro Centers, so we can either take care of your needs or refer you to a sister operation.  Trust our experience and ideas for re-purposing existing elements for to minimize your out-of-pocket and maximize your return on investment (ROI).  Call us today at 650.662-5450 or email
