JEB Commerce New Office

JEB Commerce, a growing, Coeur d’Alene based internet marketing company, hired CDA Sign to create the signage for their new office. We worked with graphic designer, Russell Heistuman at Whitestone Design Werks to complete this task. Russell had completely overhauled the JEB brand in the last year, so the goal was to show off the new design elements on JEB’s new, larger, window space.

With the Photoshop mockup that Whitestone provided, we were able to put together some amazing window signage using high performance cut vinyl, as well as dusted crystal vinyl. This was our first time getting to use the dusted crystal vinyl and we were very pleased with the results. The end product turned out just as nice as the mockup that Whitestone provided.

If your company is looking for some window vinyl, or signage of any kind, please give us a call at 208-755-0538 or fill out our contact form.

You can see our latest work if you head over to Thomas Hammer in Hayden Idaho! To give people a clear indication of where they were supposed to order, we created a sign that read, “Fire when ready!” and placed it between the speakers on their new order board.

Drive over to the Thomas Hammer in Hayden today for their new Frizz carbonated iced coffee drink! I’m drinking it as I write. It’s amazing.

CDA Food Delivery Vehicle Signage

by andy on September 19, 2011

“Save gas, save time, let us stand in line!”. That is the slogan for our Coeur d’Alene food delivery specialists, CDA Food Delivery. CDA Food Delivery came to us last week looking for signs for their vehicles. We were excited to take on the job since CDA Sign loves vehicle graphics.

During a visit with Matt, the owner of CDA Food Delivery, we took pictures of his very nice, but very stock Ford Fusion. The goal was to make this car as noticeable as possible. We laid out what we believed to be a very killer design on his car in Photoshop. We scheduled the installation for the next Saturday.

For this particular job, we decided to use high performance cut vinyl. High performance cut vinyl is very low profile. A printed vinyl design would have also looked amazing, however, printed vinyl doubles the thickness since we have to laminate it for outdoor use.

We began with the large, “DELIVERY” gray pieces and later inset the logos on each side. Cut, high performance vinyl is not forgiving if you mess up, so this was very slow, very tedious work. After the sides were complete, we installed the hood logo, coming out of the driver side headlight, and designed the “CDA FOOD DELIVERY” piece going vertical along the left hood line. Lastly, we laid out the requested phrases and contact information along the bumper, and added a small logo on the trunk.

This job turned out great. We are thankful for the relationship that we have built with CDA Food Delivery, and hope that it is a long term one. If you need food delivered to your door, be sure to give them a call!

Rush Delivery Car Vinyl Graphics

Post image for Rush Delivery Car Vinyl Graphics

Failed signs from the last sign company. CDA Sign got the job to create new, better quality signs.

One day on our way to get lunch at Paul Bunyan’s in Hayden, Idaho, we passed one of the Rush Delivery cars. We happened to notice that their vinyl signs were falling off. After contacting them, and suggesting that we could replace their vinyl signs with better vinyl signs, we got the job.

Jon, the owner of Rush Delivery, LLC came by our vinyl sign shop in Coeur d’Alene so that we could survey the job to be done. After looking at the old vinyl graphics, it appeared that maybe a poor quality vinyl had been used. The adhesive stayed on the car, but vinyl was separated. The previous signs had been layered, red vinyl on white vinyl, to get the desired look. Since CDA Sign can print on vinyl as well as cut vinyl, we decided that the future signs would all be printed and cut to get the desired look, rather than have vinyl stacked on top of each other.

Old signs removed, and the car washed!

We scheduled the installation for the following weekend, right after the Coeur d’com installation. Being on the road day after day throughout the whole northwest, the car had a quite a bit of dust when it arrived. We quickly removed the old signage using mild solvents, and then gave the car, a Honda Fit, a good washing.

New signs completed and ready to be picked up!

It looked beautiful and ready for new signage. Throughout the rest of the evening and into the following morning, we carefully measured, printed, and cut vinyl to the optimal size and real estate across the sides of the cars. Then we applied the vinyl using partially dry and partially wet application methods using a horizontal hinge.

Vibrant, printed vinyl

It turned out fantastic. The printed red on white vinyl turned out way more vibrant than the previous stacked vinyls. We also replaced the phone numbers on all three sides with the company’s website address.

Jon was very pleased with the installation and requested that we place both the graphic designer’s logo, and CDA Sign’s logo in the rear window. We did.

We greatly appreciate the work that Rush Delivery gave us, and look forward to taking care of his future cars and sign needs.

Coeur d'com vehicle graphics by CDA Sign!

Derek at Coeur d’com got in touch with us recently about creating and installing large vehicle graphics for the company’s Nissan Cube. Initially we were looking at doing a full car wrap, but later decided on the clean and crisp look of large vehicle signage in high performance vinyl. After showing Coeur d’com a few mockups of what we could do, we decided to start with large logo pieces stretching across the sides of the vehicle at an angle, with more pieces to follow.

After freshly washing the Nissan Cube, owner Jeff Adams dropped it off at CDA Sign for the day. We had already Photoshop’d how the signage would look on the vehicle, but since things are always a little different in real life, we re-measured and put our vinyl cutter to work.

We began with the red heart of the logo for the passenger side, making sure that it fit just the way we measured. After cutting the black, “Coeur d’com” text, we lined it and the heart up against the Nissan Cube to make sure our measurements were correct and that everything would look great. After we were satisfied with how it would look and were everything would go, we placed markers on the Cube with masking tape, and then began installing the heart. After the heart was installed using a wet application method, we installed the black text of the logo directly on top. We then repeated this process on the drivers side of the vehicle.

To top it off, we placed the Coeur d’com phone number and website url on the back right of the vehicle. It turned out great! The owners were very happy with it. One thing about using straight, high performance vinyl is that it is very vibrant, and really looked amazing on that pearl white Nissan Cube.

Thank you Coeur d’com for your business!

CR Gutting Green T-Shirt

Needing professional landscaping or snow removal services? Get in touch with Caleb at CR Gutting Industries. CR Gutting Industries provides professional landscaping and snow removal services in the Spokane, Post Falls, Coeur d’Alene and Rathdrum areas. Caleb came to us last month needing company t-shirts as well as vinyl signage for their trucks. Both turned out fantastic.

These particular t-shirts were both long sleeve, and short sleeve in safety green and black. For this project we used our Gildan Ultra Cotton brand, as well as our Siser cut vinyl material. In most cases our Siser digital cut vinyl product is better than your typical screen printing product as the digital cut vinyl often outlasts the garment. And we only use high quality garments.

CR Gutting Truck Signs

As to the signage, we did 2 larger door signs and a rear tailgate sign for one of CR Gutting’s pickup trucks. Caleb had CDA Sign perform the installation of these signs. Another job well done!

Thank you CR Gutting for the opportunity to work for your company. As with all of our customers, we are very thankful for the work that we do get, and look forward to serving you again.

JEB Commerce, a Coeur d’Alene based internet marketing company, recently had a branding overhaul performed by Whitestone Design Werks. Whitestone Design Werks referred us to JEB Commerce to build new signs with their new logo for the front of their building. We also created t-shirts for JEB Commerce with their new branding. Both the signage and the t-shirts turned out fantastic.

Blue Water Technologies in Hayden

Today we had the great privilege of creating and installing vinyl signs for Blue Water Technologies, Inc in Hayden Idaho. They recently had their logo redone and needed new vinyl signage on their front window as well as their company vehicle. It turned out great! Each of these signs were digitally printed. The front window sign was die-cut, with no background or white contour. The vehicle signs were the same except they did have a white background and about a 1/4″ white contour. It has been a pleasure working with Blue Water, and we hope to work with them again soon.

CDA Daily Deals Vinyl Truck Decals

by andy on May 7, 2011

We recently had the opportunity to create and install printed decals for CDA Daily Deals on their company truck. We did a wet install on these stickers, and it went really smooth.

One cool thing to point out on this particular job is the QR Codes. QR Codes can be scanned using a smart phone. When this happens the QR Code will take the user to the company’s website, a Youtube video, phone call, or email, depending on what the company generated it for. QR Codes can save potential customers time from having to type in a URL on their phone. They also do a great job of grabbing people’s attention since they are new, and you never know where one might take you.

If you are looking for someone to custom print, or die-cut stickers for your company vehicle, give us a call!

Hayden Thomas Hammer Coffee Install

Post image for Hayden Thomas Hammer Coffee Install

by andy on May 3, 2011

Recently we had the opportunity to do the bellyband vinyl for the Thomas Hammer Coffee store in Hayden Idaho. It turned out great! We chose the nastiest, coldest day of the week to do the installation. However, the baristas were kind, and kept us supplied with warm coffee. If you have not yet tried a Thomas Hammer Coffee drink, we highly recommend it. Their drip coffee and latte’s are probably the best that the Hayden/Coeur d’Alene area has to offer. If you are feeling adventurous, their El Diablo and Jack Hammer specialty drinks are simply amazing. For more information, see HammerCoffee.com.

Thank you Thomas Hammer Coffee Roasters for the work! We appreciate your business…and your coffee!
