Ramona Morales Apartments

  Another really cool, custom sign was just fabricated and installed, this time in Benson, AZ. The Ramona Morales Apartment complex, located at 550 W. Union St, Benson, AZ is the latest Sign Magic client to get their sign installed.  A lot of work went into this sign, and seeing it finished and installed proves that our staff really does know how to pull it off! This sign has a tiled face,which our guys put together themselves here in the shop. Then a rubber-like vinyl was placed on top of the tile so only the areas of the sign being treated by the sand-blaster were showing (the wording and logos on the sign). After we got the sign back from the sand-blasters, a few layers of black and teal paint were applied and then the protective rubber was peeled off. A frame was built around the sign, and painted teal to match the lettering on the face. The tile made this double-sided sign extremely heavy so in order to install it, we had to use a large crane. The custom signs, like this one, are always the most fun to work on, and always end up really standing out once they are finished.
