Turducken 2012!

Last Friday we celebrated our 5th annual Turducken Luncheon. All we can say is a big "thank you!" to everyone that was able to come out and celebrate with us. This was a fantastic day to be able to gather with our customers and fellow community members and we were truly humbled and grateful for the incredible turn out! With some 300 people in attendance it really encouraged us to come up with some great ideas for how we can improve on this event next year including adding a second serving line to ensure the flow can be as efficient as possible. No matter how you slice it this was a great time and a great experience that we will not soon forget and we thank you warmly from the bottom of our hearts for all your support and business throughout the years! From all of here at North County Printers and Signs we wish you a happy and safe holiday season and we hope to see you next year!

USMC Custom Logo Sandblasted Sign

This project is easily one of our favorites we have done in recent memory. We won a bid with a unit on Camp Pendleton to create a custom dimensional logo sign for their main building. We agreed upon doing a traditional sand blasted sign that we really enjoyed creating. We used a mixture of hand painted elements and digitally printed vinyl graphics to complete the various elements of the sign and than installed on site with a custom french cleat mounting system. The customer loved the final as product as did we! 

NCTD Reflective Aluminum Signage

This is another kind of project we love. Custom safety or directional signage are some of the most common signs we produce and are a big part of the industry. Here is a new set of aluminum signs that we put together with digitally printed and UV laminated engineer grade reflective vinyl for North County Transit District. Simple, clean and effective!

Rancho Carlsbad Golf Club Large and Small Exterior Signs

For this project our customer wanted an updated look for their aging and worn signage. We were able to update their signage by creating all new vinyl graphics and applying them to aluminum faced panels and sign quality plywood which will hold up and make a strong statement for many years to come.

Large Exterior USMC Sign

On this project we updated an existing sign base with all new vinyl graphics applied to the back and a mix of custom contour cut aluminum faced panels and laser cut acrylic to make a refreshed and bold statement for the entrance of this units building!

Custom Hummer H2 Skid Plate/Grille Decals

This was definitely a very unique project for us. We had a customer who really wanted to add some American Flag images to his Hummer H2 skid plate and grille. So we mapped out the contour of the skid plate and grille carefully with a paper pattern and transferred those images into the computer where we recreated the shape so that we could digitally print high quality vinyl graphics to the surfaces and the results were amazing!

Sole Lab Building Frontage

This was another fun project we were able to do for Sole Lab. We were able to create this look using 1/4" thick, laser cut white acrylic elements with high performance digitally printed graphics applied to the circular element. By using high quality materials we know this is a frontage sign that will look great for years to come!
