A premier sign company for Carlsbad has arrived! Last Tuesday, June 26th, was a big day for us to officially celebrate the establishment of our new business in a Ribbon Cutting ceremony with the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce, followed by a Grand Opening Reception open house. The festivities were well attended by a host of supporters, from past colleagues to chamber members, neighbors, friends and family who all came out to share in the festivities.
During the open house reception, attendees dropped in throughout the evening, perusing the showroom and exploring the offices and production area. The showroom wall display showcased many of the varieties of signage we produce, from dimensional letters to architectural signs, mailbox wraps, fabric and retractable banners, retail promotional signs, and more.
One of the main features of our showroom is our entry wall, which integrates a mural of a surfer at Ponto beach with our dimensional Lobby Sign. The sign is mounted on stand-offs to add depth to the element, as are jetty rocks that are printed on gloss vinyl for a wet look appearance, then cut out to provide a subtle 3-D effect.
Hourly prize drawings were held from among questionnaires filled out by our guests – the answers to which were obtained by touring our facility and identifying various elements from among the myriad of displayed images and graphics we produce. This also encouraged interaction with our staff to discover some of the answers, which added a little fun for all.
Perhaps the highlight of the evening, according to most of those in attendance, was the live vehicle wrap that took place in the vehicle bay: The complete transformation of the North Coast Signs Mazda 3 from a standard paint job to a fully custom-branded advertising vehicle for our business. Over a 14-hour undertaking, and fascinating to watch, the two 3M certified installers worked with heat guns and artistic expertise to mold and shape the vinyl to every curve and body line of the car. A time-lapse video captured the progressive transformation.
The overall effect was achieved through a unique combination of different types of premium vehicle wrap film. 3M Premium Matte White was first layered on the sides and over the door frames, then printed panels of high gloss blue with gray accent stripes were applied. The result is a design and color scheme consistent with the North Coast Signs icon and branding. The finishing touch is the application of the logo in full color print, custom cut and applied to the door panels along with a perforated film graphic on the rear window.
In keeping with our North Coast theme, visitors enjoyed Hawaiian BBQ sliders, fruit salad, chips, cookies and refreshing drinks. Fun was had by all, and all the more, we felt elated to have hosted a successful grand opening celebration.
