A New Sign that Looks Old

There is a saying that says making the old new again; however at Quality Manufacturing we’re doing things a bit different for our clients. As you go on your holiday travels you may see one of our signs in the Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport. Although the vintage sign for Uptown Minnesota may look old, we helped to make this new sign that harkens back to the 50s’. We made this custom sign for Topline Signs who required a vintage look for the signage.

At Quality Manufacturing we were able to achieve this vintage appearance by utilizing a four layer extruded aluminum process. The faces are routed aluminum with chasing incandescent lamps which helps us achieve the vintage look. However, we used modern LED lights to internally illuminate the sign.

As a wholesale manufacturer we have extensive experience creating custom signs for clients who need a unique look. Our staff utilizes the latest technology to achieve our client’s requirements.

New Custom Signage for a New Stadium

Stadium Signage

At Quality Manufacturing we work with a variety of sign companies to create custom signage and readers may remember our previous blog post about some of our custom plastic sign work. Recently we worked with AGI Signs to fabricate a 30 foot diameter bottle cap which will be placed in a sports stadium.

The cap was built to AGI Signs’ specifications which required us to form ABS plastic around the perimeter to simulate the look of a bottle cap and the outside perimeter is a quarter inch thick outdoor durable plastic.  To create the life-like look of the bottle cap we had to make a new tool, and our extensive tooling capabilities enabled us to fabricate the sign.

The bottle cap signage also features a Daktronics electronic message center in the middle to show high resolution messages and video. As a wholesale sign manufacturer creating custom signage such as this bottle cap, is our specialty and we adhere to the highest quality standards to ensure our customer’s satisfaction.

Thermoforming Beyond the Signage Industry

Cargo Wave

As a wholesale sign manufacturer we are often talking about our standard sign face products, however we also do work outside of the sign industry and wanted to take a moment to talk about our thermoforming capabilities for other industries.

This is a towable storage boat that allows users to easily transport their items behind jet skis, kayaks, canoes, inflatables, boats, ATVs, snowmobiles, and more.

This project highlights our custom thermoforming abilities as we can create an impressive array of forms, including plastic domes or hemispheres as well as custom plastic parts for the boat or auto industry.
