The Trick to Color Matching

Designing signage isn’t quick and easy, even if it’s just something that can be printed quickly like stickers or vinyl wraps. It’s not just about doing some Photoshop wizardry, printing it out and viola, sticking it on the storefront. Depending on the materials being printed on, ink quality, the printer itself, and a whole bunch of factors, the results might actually look quite different than what’s on the computer. Color matching is especially tricky. That’s where a good eye and some good old-fashioned tools come in.

When it comes out of our HP 360 printer, we’ll have to see how it actually looks like since the actual thing isn’t going to be exactly the same as what you see on a computer screen. We’ll eyeball it and compare it to a Pantone color wheel. We’ll print variations of each color to see which point in the color spectrum reacts with our choice of vinyl and lamination for the job. After all, a quality sign has to look just right! 

Sometimes, if we’re following the colors of a pre-existing sign, we might use an actual physical sample of the original for comparison. We’d really prefer it if clients send us the original high resolution files, but if they’ve lost it then a simple photograph or, heavens forbid, a low-resolution one, just won’t do. Photos won’t do justice since the lighting can change how a sign looks – an indoor sign in a restaurant will look different from a lobby sign that’s brightly lit, whereas an outdoor sign under natural lightning is something else entirely.

Overlooking the details is what leads to project pitfalls that a lot do fall for.

This is why the experience of seasoned sign-makers is invaluable – especially if you’re in a highly competitive area, like Los Angeles of the San Fernando Valley region. In such scenes, you’ll want the best color combinations for sign visibility and that’s what we bring to the table: the keen eyes, attention to detail, the array of tools and techniques we can draw upon, all to meet your needs in the best way possible. There’s no substitute for quality!

Slice of Life: Arts & Crafts, Sign Maker Style

The great thing about being a sign-maker is that if you’re into arts and crafts and love working with your hands, then you’re gonna have the time of your life. We believe that handmade is still best made, after all. Making tiny stickers for your favorite sports teams? Draping a car in an eye-catching vinyl wrap? Making cute signs that’ll be on the storefront of a boutique? How about putting graffiti on a wall… and being paid for it! Those’ll really test your creativity and your handiness.

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…)
