Nothing expresses the excitement of early learning like brightly colored crayons. And crayons are exactly what Sign Source of Ada, Oklahoma focused on in its sign design for a Headstart Early Childhood Development program.

The project called for six identical, double-sided monument signs – each featuring a 103” wide Dibond panel supported on either side by 78” replica crayons – one red, one blue.

Working with expanded polystyrene (EPS) cellular plastic, the Signs By Benchmark team created the twelve massive crayons, then went to work achieving a sleek, smooth surface in preparation for the five color stippled finish.

“The challenge was definitely achieving a smooth finish,” said Matt Frey, Signs By Benchmark General Manager. “We’ve had the chance to hone our skills on several projects now, so our team didn’t hesitate to jump at this one.”
