SSK Signs was recently involved in the rebranding of Ten Thousand Villages, the oldest and largest Fair Trade organization in North America. The reinvention firm, Jackman Reinvents, http://www.jackmanreinvents.com was responsible for the design of the rebranding and contacted us to produce and install the many signs needed for the rebranding.
Ten Thousand Villages creates opportunities for artisans in developing countries to sell their products to North American markets through long-term, fair trading relationships. Their philosophy is based on the principle that trade should have a conscience. Through Fair Trade, talented artisans earn fair value for their work. Look up Ten Thousand Villages at http://www.tenthousandvillages.ca/.
SSK Signs involvement in the project included both exterior and interior signage.
Exterior work included the removal of an old awning and the installation of a new lightbox sign. As well, we produced and installed a new sandwich board sign and a blade sign. Due to the graffiti problems in the area, SSK Signs proposed a different approach for the exterior decoration: instead of painting, we wrapped exterior walls, window frames and a door to an upstairs apartment with an anti-graffiti laminate. To finish off the exterior work, we even sourced and installed anti-bird spikes to protect the building from the local aviary community.
The interior work was the production and installation of wayfinding signs to help customers find the different products offered around the store.
SSK Signs involvement did not stop there. We were responsible for the project management of all of the signage components of the rebranding from the coordination of municipal permits to the hiring of electricians, awning removal personnel, electrical sign installer and the wall wrapping installers. So when SSK Signs advertises that they are a full service sign company, we mean it.
So if rebranding is in your future for your business, contact SSK Signs today to discuss the many possibilities for your exterior and interior signage needs. We are conveniently located in north Mississauga for our all of our GTA customers. Follow us on Google+, Facebook and Twitter for up to date happenings at SSK Signs
