Silly Signs for Get Togethers!

The holiday season is a time for reunions, get togethers and parties. Do you have relatives coming to town? Friends visiting? Want to impress them with a custom banner at the airport, or a poster when they come in your abode? Make it memorable with a high quality sign or banner displaying something spectacular, or spectacularly silly, like in-jokes or hilariously photoshopped images of the celebrant or guest in question. Imagine waving that around in the airport!

On the Importance of Goofing Off

We at Premium Sign Solutions pride ourselves not only in our hard work, but also in our creativity. But how do you cultivate creativity? It’s not just about logging in “creativity” hours – that’s just asking for burnout. Creativity isn’t just about repetition. Yes, it’s part of the package since the brain needs exercise to get used to thinking creatively… but even an athlete trying to reach peak performance needs downtime away from the gym for his or her muscles to rebuild. For building creativity, that means taking some time away to goof off! (more…)

Avoiding Project Pitfalls with the PSS Difference

Quality signs from quality sign-makers are irreplaceable and you can’t skimp on that – remember, your sign sends a message! Skimping on your signs will more often than not result in project pitfalls that in turn will cause headaches down the line – and you can’t afford that in competitive places like Los Angeles or San Fernando Valley. Look at the above picture, of course that’s not one of ours, but that’s what happens when you take shortcuts. They couldn’t even get the panels of their outdoor sign to have matching shades of white. How do you mess up white? Jeez. (more…)

Slice of Life: Car Wraps for Nursing Services in the San Fernando Valley

At Premium Sign Solutions, we do more than create and install signs on or inside buildings, we also make car wraps, vehicle graphics and vehicle lettering. Most of it happens in our garage and the final process of sticking the wrap on a car is a really precise yet really hands-on one, there’s no margin for error. Pockets of air or misaligned wraps not only look bad but also have shorter lifespans than properly and tightly-applied wraps, so that’s why vinyl wraps have to be applied with tender loving care. After all… handmade is still best made in San Fernando Valley. 😉

This time, we made a car wrap for a nursing service, specifically Nurse Next Door.

Handmade is Still Best Made in San Fernando Valley

You know those address letters you see on large buildings? Some of those are handmade! In this age of automated, instantly-made everything, there are still some things that are carefully and meticulously made by hand, with attention to detail and priority on quality instead of mass-production. Storefront signs, company logos in lobbies, even those illuminated pylon signs high up on posts, they’re still made by hand in the U S of A.  (more…)

Slice of Life: Team Meeting

Here we are having a team meeting, touching base and sorting things out early in the workday before we split up and get started with our tasks. It’s part of our workplace routine and is a crucial part of getting organized. Imagine a restaurant, this would be like the chefs meeting and discussing what everyone’s ordered for dinner and planning out how to make everything.

Workplace Safety With Signs

In our previous Slice of Life blog we talked about the importance of staying hydrated and how it’s part of workplace safety. Here we’ll further expound on the subject, going beyond keeping cool water handy or having the AC running, since we take workplace safety really seriously. Aside from making sure our house is in order, we also do our part to help other establishments in and around Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley maintain safe environments for employees and clients alike. How do we do it? Simple, with signs! (more…)

Slice of Life: Stay Hydrated!

We were installing a Farmers Insurance outdoor sign over in the San Fernando Valley. Our man Jorge was on a bucket truck delicately sliding the exterior sign into its slot on a pylon during a sunny day. It was a cloudless day, with a clear blue sky that seemed endless. Perfect weather for the beach… but not quite for working with heavy machinery. It was somewhere around 100 degrees out there, whew. Boy was our guy parched! That’s why we always remember to stay hydrated. It didn’t help that it was a mall sign, which meant a face-full of cool, refreshing AC was nearby teasing him. (more…)
