As the USC Viterbi School of Engineering welcomed back thousands of students and guests to campus, they reached out for help with some creative signage solutions.

We are back at printing that Cardinal and Gold (PMS 201 and PMS 123, respectively)!  The USC Viterbi School of Engineering along with the rest of the University of Southern California welcomed back students, staff, and faculty to in-person activities for the first time in a long time this week.  As thousands of people made their way through campus, many needed quick-turnaround on creative large format printing solutions – aka SIGNS!

We loved collaborating on this project in delivering semi-permanent solution that allowed for easy installation as well as a professional look and feel.  After a few meetings and debating some options, we helped create double-sided stand up signs and traditional vinyl banners for their outdoor canopies.  Everything was built with visibility and professionalism in mind.

The two-sided standup, spider signs are easy to set up and have a weighted base to make sure they don’t fall over (or blow away). At the same time, they are easily taken down when finished with use.  The spider-like arms make for strong tension on the banner vinyl that allows for a rigid, clean look.  Best of all, we can print replacement banners for any future use!
