Situated in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards, the Jersey Lilly Silver & Stone does business at 104 Exchange Avenue. This retailer carries sterling silver pieces, unusual jewelry and handcrafted items by local artist Julie Normandale. When this business needed exterior signs with an historic look for Fort Worth, its management contacted Cowtown Graphics & Signs for assistance.
Maintaining an Old-world Feel
The Stockyards is the place you go to when you want to immerse yourself in the feel of yesterday. A time when life was simpler, when store clerks were friendly and when you could find one of a kind pieces. Keeping this tradition alive today is the mission of the retailers who do business there. To ensure that the Jersey Lilly Silver & Stone fit right in, we started with an old-world sign that reminds of the western signage that used to sit above storefronts in small towns.
It features gold and brown hues. The windows, too, needed a treatment. We manufacture window graphics for retailers in Fort Worth with the help of vinyl. The material is ideal for cutting in a broad range of fonts. It allows for color usage that suits any setting. To continue the old-world feel of this storefront, we used the same font of the lettering setup that we displayed on the storefront signage to identify the name of the store with gold lettering. The finished marker combination looks attractive and helps the store to fit in perfectly with the atmosphere of the area – while standing out sufficiently to reel in foot traffic.
Adjusting Building Signage for Your Area
There is more to adding a building sign than simply putting up channel letters, a lightbox cabinet or a routed marker. For this reason, our professionals always like to do a site survey. It allows us to get a feel for the neighborhood’s character and the signage that other businesses are using. Although you do want to stand out, you also want to maintain the integrity of the area’s look and feel. This is something that you can accomplish with the right types of exterior building signs. Fort Worth permitting officials also place certain rules on some neighborhoods, which factors into the choice of products that is open to you when doing business there.
Since we routinely work with city officials, permitting your signage is no problem. We let you know what is usually allowed in your area, what is frequently disallowed and then offer you expert input on the right size, shape and mounting location to let your building’s exterior harmonize beautifully with your neighborhood. Moreover, we work with you on material and color selection, which is the part that lets you stand out and make a mark on the area.
