Lake & City Homes is proud to announce the completion of its first production run of yard signs and open house signs!
It wasn't easy but it was worth the effort!
First, two different designers were involved in the production of the initial logo, Dina Sporer of Red Hot Skillet Designs in Madison WI and Donna Collingwood of Collingwood Designs, also of Madison.
A third designer, Marily Crews-Nelson of Whopping Big Signs (a division of Magellan Mapping out of Waunakee WI), then skillfully reproduced our signature skeleton key and the rest of the elements in our logo onto a 24x36, full color, 2-sided, 080 aluminum, ≈24 gauge, baked white enamel sign that includes elegantly rounded corners and grommets on both top and bottom. And what a beautiful result! We just couldn't be more pleased.
The top grommets are for hanging the yard sign from the white signpost that gets pounded into the ground and the bottom grommets are for hanging specialty riders such as home warranty riders, open house riders, or other property-specific information riders (e.g. "100' lake frontage", "Price Reduced", "Architect-designed", or other key selling points). We should also point out that the white background was recommended by Whopping Big Signs' Lisa Whiting who indicated that studies prove white signs are more noticeable than signs with dark backgrounds. We think this will definitely be the case in all but the snowiest seasons in Madison WI!
We also had three double-sided heavy steel open house signs (with handles) made up to direct traffic when we hold our listings open to the public or for other brokers. These signs are heavy, durable and match our yard signs exactly.
Please drop us a line and let us know what you think of our new signs!
