S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • October 2019 • 19 Reno, Nevada, offers brackets and other products for a modern or old-world look. "We have noticed appealing trends blending old and new," says Brad Wass, who works in visual communications in graphics and marketing for Gyford Décor. "Our satin aluminum finish and overall component design lends itself to a modern feel. However, customers designing for a surface with warm wood, brick, iron or patina take advantage of our custom powder-coating options." Gyford Décor makes many of its sign display products out of aluminum and stainless steel—aluminum is lightweight and strong and stainless steel is even stron- ger with anti-corrosive properties that protect against the elements, Wass says. "Brackets are available in so many options from simple function to highly ornate and when chosen discerningly will complement your customer's brand," Wass says, adding that some brackets are not made for the elements and that the type of surface and weight of the sign should be considered for mounting. "Unique signs receive a second look and a longer gaze. Sign brackets add dimen- sion and visibility from different angles." Art SignWorks, Inc., in Murrieta, California, makes custom steel, wrought iron, aluminum and wood hardware brackets, fixtures and supports with less common woods, including cedar, redwood, oak and mahogany. Steel or aluminum brackets, when properly designed with thick cross-sections, have the strength to support the sign in the elements. "These are works of art and can enhance the beauty of the sign if designed properly," says Paul Williamson, president and principal owner of Art SignWorks. "They look great, are strong, last 20 years or longer and require little or no maintenance." Projecting blade signs can be much more noticeable than wall signs over a store's door. Popular choices for sign displays are wrought iron scroll brackets, custom overhead and side steel brackets, and overhead wood beam brackets for blade signs, Williamson says. "Elaborate and interesting blade signs are very popular in downtown shopping areas, strip malls and shopping malls where there is no room to put up large monument or post-and-panel signs," Williamson says. "Projecting blade signs are much more noticeable and can be more interesting than wall signs over a store's or restaurant's door. An impor- tant part of a blade sign is an attractive, impressive overhead steel bracket pro- jecting from the wall that supports and displays the sign." SDG Image courtesy of Gyford Standoff Systems.
