Sign Shines with Faux Stone & Solar Powered Reverse-lit Channel Lettering

When the community of Hawley, Minn. decided on new signage that would welcome visitors at both entrances, they wanted a design that would reflect the family-friendly atmosphere of their town. In response, JH Signs & Designs of Perham, Minn. designed a sign that immediately appealed to town officials.Having heard of Signs by Benchmark and its quality composite-core products, Justin Helmke of JH Signs & Designs gave their team a call.

“We hadn’t worked together before,” said Helmke, “But when I initially asked about possibilities, all my questions were answered. Details were all worked out. Our collaboration went very well.”

Working from submitted designs, Signs By Benchmark artisans went to work creating two 13′ 11″ wide x 10′ 7″ high x 38″ deep one-sided, monument style signs. The flexibility of their medium lent itself to creation of hand-sculpted faux stone bases and columns. Attachable three dimensional, embossed logo accents were created separately for ease of shipping. Internal raceways were manufactured into each sign to accept wiring for the reverse-lit channel lettering that would be solar powered. Because each sign required different pole centers due to electrical issues, both signs were universal, allowing installation at either site.

Prior to shipping, all components were sprayed with Signs By Benchmark’s signature hard coat, then painted. Upon receiving the signs, JH Signs & Designs placed wiring, then mounted letters and logo accents just prior to installing a sign at each community entrance.

“We were amazed at how light the signs were compared to their size,” said Helmke. “The installation process went very well.”

Working together, Signs By Benchmark and JH Signs & Designs completely satisfied the customer. The community and its visitors will enjoy the durable, beautifully crafted signs that will renewably transform the sun’s power into a warm, night-time glow – year after year.
