Irvine Signs | Spotlight on Irvine Law Firm

New Lobby Irvine Signs

The law firm of Dack | Marasigan choose Sign Clemente for its new Irvine Signs.   For their lobby sign, the newest addition to Irvine Signs, they choose a design similar to the Milan Institute sign you see in our lobby gallery.

Millan Institute loves their reception signs as they reorder one each time they open a new location.

Construction of the New Irvine Signs

The new Irvine Signs– the new lobby sign- is of clear acrylic.  When clear acrylic is routed from flat sheets to make Irvine signs, the router bit leaves the edges with a frosty look.  It is a striking and unusual look as you can see in the photo.  The large elements of this one of Irvine signs is 1″ thick.  The smaller letters are 1/2″ thick.  The faces of all the letters are brushed aluminum.  The bar is face painted black enamel.  An attractive lobby addition to our Irvine signs!

Lobby Signs and Irvine Signs

Business is vibrant and growning in Irvine.  What a better way to cement your corporate image in the minds of your clients and potential clients with a lobby sign.  They are among the most effective of Irvine signs, as they show your customer that you are here to stay, a professional, and are proud of your firm.  Lobby signs build credibility, and in so doing, make your selling job that much easier.

Thank you for reading about Irvine signs!


Irvine Signs | Irvine Signage, The Bumper Guy

The Bumper Guy Gets New Irvine Signs

Congrats go to the The Bumper Guy for new Irvine Signs.  The Bumper Guy, part of OC Bumper & Body, choose Sign Clementefor Irvine Signs.  The customer choose to go with an illuminated set of letters.  The construction is no-rust aluminum, the faces are acrylic.  The black and white faces that you see in the Irvine Signs photo consist of white acrylic with a black vinyl inset.

LED’s and Irvine Signs

LED’s have become so much more practical and economical than even two years ago.  We almost always use LED’s now for Irvine Signs.  Neon, the choice of
customers in the past, requires 12,000 volts, special wiring that has to be shielded, and lots of power consumption.  Neon also requires servicing about every five years.  When ever you sign illuminated Irvine Signs the have letters that are not lighting, you can bet it is neon.  LED, on the other hand, is rated for about 100,000 hours of use.  Even still when LED powered Irvine Signs have an LED failure, it is usually only one of the lights, which means the other lights will still be working.  So when LED powered Irvine Signs have one light go out, you can’t tell because the other lights are still shining.

Irvine SignsThe Bumper Guy and Irvine Signs

Shine on, Irvine Signs

OC Bumper and Body now has two Irvine Signs– their original sign and now, their The Bumper Guy Sign.  The first one was produced by another sign company, and the new one was produced by Sign Clemente.  The Sign Clemente sign literally outshines the old one!  The white outline looks like edge neon– it shines that bright.  Now you can see their sign off Irvine Center Drive, to the left of the Big O Tire sign and just to the right of the VOLVO | SAAB sign.

New Signs for Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery | Newport Beach Signs

Newport Beach Signs

This lobby sign greets patients visiting the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery

New Newport Beach Signs

The Gallery of Costmetic Surgery gets new Newport Beach Signs.  Shown here, their lobby sign looks particularly attactive.  This one of Newport Beach signs is made of acrylic sheeting and cut on a computer-driven router.  The ‘G’ of this one of Newport Beach signs are 3/4″ thick and the smaller elements are 1/4″ thick.  The text is 1/2″ thick.  The ‘G’ also has beveled edges.  This all gives this one of Newport Beach signs more depth and dimension.  The acrylic gets its color from a high grade industrial enamel.

This sign did offer a challenge among Newport Beach signs, and that is that is was to be mounted to a concave wall.  Usually Sign Clemente lobby signs go on completely flat walls.  Fortunately, acrylic has enough bend to it that it was a problem– aluminum would have been.

Newport Beach Signs Create Image

The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery was most concerned about image.  Being in Newport Beach, and considering the upscale nature of the practice, the customer was concerned about creating an elegant image with its Newport Beach signs.  Therefore, we were extra careful with helping them select the best shades of color and materials.

Newport Beach Signs for the Building

Next up, the Gallery will get new letters on their building which can only attract new patients.  It will be dark bronze “foam and plex” with a stucco finish on the edges to deter birds and make this one of Newport Beach signs last a good long time.  Stay tuned for this one– we just need to get the biggest boom lift we can find and get those letters up there!

And that is it for Newport Beach Signs!

Custom Sign Company Marks Seven-Year Anniversary

7- Year Anniversary of Making Custom Signs

Since 95% of all businesses fail in five years, we are proud to pass our seven year mark making custom signs.

As an Orange County sign company, we have earned over 500 customers, and produced over 2,000 custom signs! Starting out doing mostly banners and door magnets, we have grown to specialize in commercial signage serving many corporations that are household names.

Custom Signs Bring Logos to Life

Polished Faces Greet Visitors to Diamond Mattress

This Orange County sign company has brought hundreds of logos to life through lobby signs, building signs and monuments. It has been a busy seven years in the business of custom signs.

Custom signs mean making your logos real. Custom signs mean enabling you to make that all-important great first impression. That is why custom signs are so critical to your business. Your custom sign sells for you 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Who among your employees do that?

Custom Signs Are Your Best Marketing Investment

Plus, custom signs have been proved to be the most cost-effective marketing investment you can make. Studies of first-time retail customers show that the vast majority were attracted by the sign—not a radio ad, not a television ad, but the custom signs. Considering what custom signs cost versus a T.V. ad, signs are a bargain.

So success in a business is not dependent on how many corners your can cut, but how much you can invest in custom signs that will bring you business.

Looking For A Few Good Sign Companies

It might seem rather self-serving for Sign Clemente to offer advice on how to select sign companies. But what we would like to put forward is based on what customers have told us over the years, not what we think stacks up in our favor when talking to other sign companies.

Seven Tips When Interviewing Sign Companies

First, how confident do those sign companies sound? You may feel like you are taking a risk—what if you get a lousy sign? So do your contacts representing their respective sign companies sound like they know what they are talking about, or do they seem to hedge with their answers? Pay attention to clues that indicate a lack of confidence.

Also, do those sign companies have lots of examples of great work that they can show you? Do the sign companies post lots of examples on their web sites? All sign companies worth their salt should have lots of examples of their accomplishments with signs.

The Material Sign Companies

Good sign companies should have a wide range of experience with different material and media. Sign Clemente has heard lots of stories where sign companies have never worked with flat-cut metals for lobby signs for example, or had never worked with open neon. This should be a red flag because you want your sign companies to suggest what is best for you based on a wide range of what those sign companies are capable of doing.

Years in business is another important gauge of good sign companies. We are just now emerging from a long and painful recession. The fact that certain sign companies have survived is a strong and important testament to them. Sign companies that have survived the last five years demonstrate that they have a strong and loyal customer base that has helped them get through. It also says that these sign companies are competitive, and can offer you the best in the industry.

What Are Those Sign Companies Really Interested In?

Another important indicator is whether the sign companies genuinely take an interest in your needs or just seem like they are trying to get a sale. The best professionals, sign companies included, are truly interested in you and your needs.

Finally, it is always good to check out the sign companies’ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Any sign companies that have been in business for a long time with very few complaints definitely have something going for them, and that would be customer satisfaction.

Patina Your Way to Distinctive Signs

Blue Lagoon and Signs in Orange County

Guest Parking Only

We at Sign Clemente are not prone to bragging, but these signs in Orange County do deserve bragging rights! The customer is Blue Lagoon, a residential property of townhomes right on the beach in Laguna Beach.

Their signs in Orange County were over twenty years old and needed to be replaced. The signs in Orange County consisted of plaques identifying suite numbers, parking codes, pool rules and exit signs in Orange County.

Distinctive Signs in Orange County

These signs in Orange County needed to be unusual, distinctive

Directional "Way finding" Signwhile giving the property a contemporary and clean look. The answer was a Sign Clemente design, and a patina finish.

The signs in Orange County that you see in the pictures are made of aluminum, but the patina gives them a copper look. The posts for these signs in Orange County are also rust-free aluminum.

Love and Signs in Orange County

The residents of Blue Lagoon love their signs in Orange County, and many have stopped to tell us so when we were installing.

There are thousands and thousands of signs in

Orange County; if you want a sign that stands out from the pack, give Sign Clemente a call!

OC Bagels and Signs in Laguna Hills

OC Bagels & Signs in Laguna Hills

Near the corner of Alicia Parkway and Valencia is OC Bagels, offering some of the best bagels and coffee you can find. Sign Clemente is proud to have created and installed their signs in Laguna Hills.

Of all the signs in Laguna Hills, the OC Bagels signs offer a great example of a technique called push through which is a great way to distinguish your signs in Laguna Hills.

Push Through and Signs in Laguna Hills

Simply put, push through is literally that—acrylic that is pushed through the faces of signs in Laguna Hills to provide even more dimension and a halo effect when lit. The second photo shows a close up of what we are writing about. The acrylic is pushed through the routed-out face. The color is applied to the face of the push through on the signs in Laguna Hills while the edges are left clear. The effect is that halo light surrounds the graphic when lit—in this case by white neon.

Push through is not the least expensive way to make signs in Laguna Hills, but it is attractive and we have never had a customer regret that they went with that option. It requires a lot of machine time when making the signs in Laguna Hills as both the face of the cabinet has to be routed out, and the acrylic has to be shaped—almost becoming two signs in one.

Eye-Catching Signs in Laguna Hills

When having eye-catching signs in Laguna Hills, or were ever you need your sign to be seen, consider going the way of OC Bagels, and talk to use at Sign Clemente about push through.

Here is an excellent article from our sign friends in Burbank.

Lobby Signs in Laguna Niguel

Favorite Signs in Laguna Niguel

Because Laguna Niguel is more residential than commercial, we at Sign Clemente do not get as many opportunities for signs in Laguna Niguel as we would like.

Of our favorite signs in Laguna Niguel, though, are the lobby signs we are doing for Homestead Escrow. This customer is growing like crazy, and so is adding to the sum total of signs in Laguna Niguel. We started by doing one lobby sign for them, and they have liked it so much they have ordered three more!

Make Those Signs in Laguna Niguel Pop

They really wanted their signs in Laguna Niguel to pop—so we added a little extra. Their lobby signs in Laguna Niguel are two layers (see pic) where most signs in Laguna Niguel are one. This extra layer not only adds more color, but it adds more dimension as well to their signs in Laguna Niguel.

Because we didn’t want the sign to be too glossy, and to bring the cost down, we used PVC for their signs in Laguna Niguel. They are flat cut on a computer-driven router table, and then enameled with a thick industrial-quality enamel. Plus, gold and black look really good together for signs in Laguna Niguel.

Going “Crazy” Over Their Signs in Laguna Niguel

One of our favorite quotes is from the president and founder of Homestead Escrow, “Everybody is going crazy over this sign!”

Who Does Your Selling When You Are Not There?

Signs in Costa Mesa Do Your Selling

Z Tejas Sign Marks the Spot

Unlike employees, signs in Costa Mesa never have to go home, never get sick, go on strike, take breaks or have bad days. Signs in Costa Mesa sell for you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They sell for you when you are not there.

No wonder, study after study show signs in Costa Mesa as your best marketing investment. One such investment was made by the popular restaurant at the South Coast Plaza, Z Tejas. Their food is great, but they had a visibility problem in spite of their signs in Costa Mesa.

South Coast Plaza- Signs in Costa Mesa

They called Sign Clemente for help. We created and installed two signs in Costa Mesa– one on a pilaster facing the parking lot, and the other in the mall itself. Even though they had two signs in Costa Mesa to start, one was up very high, and hard to see when close to the building; the other was by one of the doors, but small.

The first of signs in Costa Mesa was the pilaster sign. It is made of aluminum for durability, and stud mounted directly into the stone. One can’t but see that one is approaching the restaurant as they walk from parking lot to mall. It has been there several months so far, and is holding up perfectly.

The second of signs in Costa Mesa is a hanging sign inside the mall. The restaurant has another entrance from the inside of the mall, but customers could walk right past it unaware that Z Tejas was so close.

We constructed a sign using PVC and acrylic. On the PVC we applied a patina that is exclusive to Sign Clemente to emphasize their southwestern ambiance. All other elements of the sign were enameled.

Signs in Costa Mesa Aren’t Going Anywhere

This is a unique sign among signs in Costa Mesa, and we wanted to make sure that it was properly fixed in place. The hanging bars are stainless steel, threaded on the sign end, while the PVC it attaches to is also threaded. Epoxy was added to ensure strength. The bases are also stainless, and clamps on to the shafts. Those bases screw into studs in the ceiling making one of the mall’s most stable signs in Costa Mesa!

Signs in Costa Mesa – Importance of Signage

This is well worth watching.

So why are Signs in Costa Mesa so important? Check out this video on what the SBA has to say.

Lots of foot traffic now sees that hanging sign—proudly one of Sign Clemente’s signs in Costa Mesa!

Signs In Fullerton Capture Attention

These Signs in Fullerton Cannot be Missed!

Because of its signage, this building cannot be missed.

Years ago, more than we would like to count, like back in the early 70’s, downtown Fullerton was mostly boarded up. There were few signs in Fullerton when you drove through the downtown area.

Since that time, the city has really spruced up, and so have the signs in Fullerton.

OC Foot & Ankle’s Signs in Fullerton

Euclid Street is not downtown, but on the corner of Euclid and Wilshire stands OC Foot & Ankle. Dr. Jonathan Bennett moved one of his locations there and called Sign Clemente to create and install his signs in Fullerton. What Sign Clemente provided were channel letters, monument lettering and various parking and directional signs.

The channel letters are the most important signs in Fullerton for OC Foot & Ankle. When you drive north on Euclid, you can see the sign for blocks. The letters are made of aluminum, so they won’t rust. The letter faces are blue acrylic, so we used blue LEDs to power the lighting to get a really visible blue. And so it is! Many have commented on how beautifully the letters shine at night.

The monument letters are flat-cut acrylic, painted with Matthew’s Paint enamel. They are pegged about ¼” off the wall and provide a nice sense of depth. There is no doubt that anyone looking for these signs in Fullerton will pass them pass without knowing it!

Signs in Fullerton Should Also Help with Traffic Flow

Parking and direction signs in Fullerton were important because the building has parking beneath the building with two entrances. To ensure proper traffic flow, Sign Clemente installed clear directional signs at each entrance/exit, plus a couple of reminder signs just in case of the driver missed the first one.

OC Foot & Ankle is both proud and happy with their signs in Fullerton. It was a rewarding job because the project was an important one for the medical practice. What started as a very dull building ended up a very interesting and inviting destination!
