Opening another location of one’s business is always an exciting time, knowing that the company is growing. It also means a lot of logistical work, including ensuring that you have all of the right storefront signage for your new location, to match others in operation. North Coast Signs can make this part of your project easier for you, as we did recently with a Carlsbad client, Leap Coffee.

Mall Storefront Signs - Restaurant Row

Mall Storefront Signs – Restaurant Row

Leap Coffee is a specialty coffee roaster, focused on providing an amazing atmosphere, quality service, and of course, great coffee. As a successful company, they were able to expand to the newly constructed restaurant row at Carlsbad Mall and needed a custom storefront signage to ensure that their branding was on point.

First, we worked to secure approval and permitting, working with the mall landlord to get approval and preparing and filing a non-illuminated storefront signage permit application with the City of Carlsbad. With all of the paperwork in order, we got to work creating the sign, which was designed and approved in consultation with Leap Coffee.

The storefront signage features custom cut, 1/4” thick aluminum lettering, with LEAP COFFEE constructed in 24” high letters. We painted those letters matte black and installed them using studs and 1/2” spacers, painted to match the wall tile color. We also secured the one-day articulating boom lift rental for installation, including delivery and pickup, so our installers could reach over the location’s awning to install the letters securely with a glass drill bit. The customer had a frog painted on the wall by a separate artist, completing the sign and marrying our technical precision with local artistry.

The location’s storefront signage is externally illuminated with trough lighting in the awning that projects onto the sign.  One of our other customers, Pro-Cal Lighting, supplied the lighting and did an amazing job.  It’s great when we can refer our customer to each other, too!
