Signs By Benchmark Foam Monument Sign Convinces City Planners
Signs West provided its design calling for EIFS stone columns, corbels, a textured sign face and stucco to match that of an existing building.
The team at Signs By Benchmark went to work with their expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, hand-sculpting the sign face and EIFS stone columns. All components, including copy, logo, top and corbels were created using the same EPS foam material.
Once assembled, the entire 8’ high x 15’ wide x 24” deep sign was hard coated with Signs By Benchmark’s signature product, ensuring long-lasting durability designed to protect the end customer’s investment into the future.
CNC cut, the foam logo and copy were stud-mounted. This allowed high visibility of lettering returns, providing an element of depth, adding to the overall beauty and appeal of the monument.
“This sign is located in a small, affluent suburb city near San Antonio, Texas,” said Dub Paden of Signs West. “Every sign permit must be approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission…their criteria of using all natural materials was a challenge to get approval. They were not sure about foam signs until I showed them examples of the Brushy Creek and Highland Cove signs (both collaborations between Signs West and Signs By Benchmark). In the end, it worked out perfectly for all. The owner is very pleased with the look and draw the sign brings. The city is happy and learned a thing or two. And we had another project with a quick install and turnaround using a Signs By Benchmark monument sign.”
