This featured project is the classic lobby sign with a twist. It was designed, fabricated and installed by Burnsville, Minnesota-based Precision Signs & Imaging, a full-service branding, design, fabrication and installation company that can do just about any sign their customers and design team can dream up.
In this case, the sign was done for Gopher State One Call in nearby Mendota Heights, which is also part of the Twin Cities metro area.
Gopher State One Call is a safety-oriented agency founded by the state in 1987. It was started following a horrific underground pipeline accident that killed a woman and her young child, and it’s designed as a clearinghouse for anyone who needs to dig underground, whether it be a homeowner planting a tree or an excavator doing major pipeline repair.
Precision Signs came up with the sign’s design, and it was fabricated using dimensional foam letters with metal laminate that matched the decor in the lobby. The sign’s premium feature is a hand-painted Gopher One shovel. According to the company’s Facebook post, “Precision Signs and Imaging installers were able to have it up and ready just in time for an important meeting, and the new sign was a big hit!”
