G R A P H I C S - P R O. C O M J A N U A R Y 2 0 2 3 • G R A P H I C S P R O 2 9 The House of Relics is was a sign over a separate entrance to the taproom's merchandise area (or "merch" room, as the younger generation calls it). It was way less complicated than the mural piece. ey wanted neon, but we had concerns about power usage, safety, and servicing. We talked about putting a cage over the sign to prevent the possibil- ity of people throwing rocks or bottles at the exposed neon, and the client liked the industrial look. We once again reached out to Custom Neon. ey had an exterior LED product, so we proceeded that way, still keeping the "caged," industrial-look- ing front. Brace Sign Service assisted with this installation as well. That's a wrap (no pun intended on mummies and walking dead) I am an old-school sign guy and abso- lutely love and admire the craftsmanship of neon. Sometimes you just need to research and see what new technology is available to fit the environment the project will go in. I believe we accomplished a vintage look while cutting down on power consump- tion, eliminating lots of potential servicing, and making everything safer all around. I think I'll blow the froth of a cold IPA from Burial Beer Company and thank them for their business and all the part- ners that made this project possible! GP Finished piece.
