20′ Halo Lit Monument Sign Lights Way to Regional College

Signs By Benchmark recently enjoyed another successful collaboration with Indigo Signworks(Fargo, N.D.) to create a sign of monumental proportions. Installed on the campus of Lake Region State College in Devil’s Lake, N.D., the custom exterior sign has no trouble catching the eye – in daylight or dark.

Featuring halo (reverse-lit) channel letters, the 12′ high x 20′ 2″ wide x 3′ 4″ deep double-sided monument features acrylic stucco finish and faux split stone handcrafted by Signs By Benchmark artisans. Designed by Indigo Signworks, the custom sign was based on Signs By Benchmark’s standard model #2.

“The customer wanted a unique, professional look,” said Jerry Nelson of Indigo Signworks. “The sign fulfills that need and also our intent to fit in with existing ground monuments in the area – only in a much larger size.”

Indigo Signworks picked up the sign from the Signs By Benchmark plant in Watertown, S.D., then installed the channel letters in their shop.

“Signs By Benchmark created the perfect design for installing wiring for the halo lit letters,” said Nelson.

Sign installation was quick and simple. Working from exact placement dimensions provided by Signs By Benchmark, the Indigo team had poured the foundation some weeks earlier. The monument was easily craned over the poles using pick points that Signs By Benchmark had installed.

As with all Signs By Benchmark signs and sign accents, the colossal monument was created from cellular plastic (EPS expanded polystyrene). All parts were either CNC cut or hand carved. Once assembled, the entire sign was encapsulated in Signs By Benchmark’s signature hard coat to ensure long-lasting durability
