Maryvale in Rosemead, Part Deux

When your sign is being vandalized, you come up with a solution! Someone was removing letters from the bottom of the Maryvale monument sign, so Tarzana based Premium Sign Solutions made two custom laser contour cut plaques that were then stud-mounted to the customer’s stucco monument. The digital prints were applied with gloss UV lamination for added protection. The solid pieces with fixed letters make them more tamper-proof. Sometimes, the regular ways to maintain outdoor signs just won’t cut it, and that’s when drastic measures like repairs and tamper-proof lettering are called for!

Maryvale was founded in 1856 and it has cared for those in need for 161 years. It provides residential care for young girls, mental health services for individuals and families, and emergency placement care for young children. Maryvale is dedicated to using its resources and deep well of experience to provide the highest quality programs while responding to the community’s needs.

Graffiti is back in Los Angeles, and in San Fernando Valley artistes like Levi Fonz Ponce are making murals of iconic figures that are meaningful to the community. And to think they used to be seen as eyesores, as the defacement of public property, spray painted by unruly youngsters out to Stick It to The Man. Vandalism, it was called, named after the Vandals, barbarians who invaded Rome and broke all their stuff. But now graffiti’s become accepted in the arts scene, seen as a free expression of the human spirit heedless of property boundaries, now displayed as striking murals in public spaces across big cities like Los Angeles, wall art for upscale establishments, even as office decoration for more laid back workplaces.
