Standard Model Provides Affordable Community Signage

Responding to signage needs of Alpena, S.D., First Class Design of Huron, S.D. called Signs By Benchmark for a durable sign that would reflect the community’s unique culture and style.

Needing modern, yet affordable signage, Alpena officials reviewed Signs By Benchmark’s 16 standard models, then chose Standard Model #3. Although all models may be customized or upgraded to meet customer needs, officials appreciated the basic design and clean lines of their chosen model. The result was a timely, turnkey project that met budgetary guidelines while providing high quality signage.

First Class Design personnel worked with the community to choose finish options for the double-sided, monument style sign. Measuring 12.5′ wide X 5′ high X 22″ deep, the sign features stylized embossed lettering mounted on a 3-color stucco finish.

Due to customer choices and a successful collaboration between Signs By Benchmark and First Class Design, the production period was short. Installation was fast and easy.

“Because of detailed sign specs and pole placement guides provided by Signs By Benchmark, “stated Mark McDonald of First Class Design, “Installation went very smoothly.”

Hard coated to withstand extreme weather conditions, the durable sign not only enhances community charm by dressing up the highway entrance, but will prove the investment for years to come.
