Give Them Space

Unique Space That Is..

We've either had them, will have them or been them...teenagers that is. And there is one thing that is pretty universal about teenagers. They like their own space. Often, they choose to spend a lot of time in their rooms, good, bad or ugly. (I'm talking about the space...not the attitude.) The attitude can be challenging to change, but the space...not at all. Now more than ever, Vital Signs has a large variety of vinyls and digital products that is sure to calm the savage, snarling teenager and bring big color fun to the teen space.
Decorate The Door

Start At The Door

The one thing that most teenagers aspire to achieve is their independence. And let's face it, they are at that stage that is somewhere between pre-adult and adolescence and trying desperately to feel grown up. They want their own space with their own personal touch applied to it's design. Mom's may still have some influence here, but typically the pre-adult teen calls the shots here. Not to worry. Vital Signs can help navigate this design territory and come up with an all-around acceptable design. And there is no reason that design shouldn't start at the door. Fun and whimsical or from another dimension, we'll take this entry to a new universe.

Focal Wall Mural

A Focal Wall Mural

Wall graphics have come a long way from taped up magazine tear-outs. A creative focal wall featuring your teen's favorite sport or hobby is sure to bring on a happy mood. If your child is going to spend a great deal of time in his/her room studying, resting or socializing, the room should be a fun reflection of who they are.

Make it a Mom/kid project. Why not invite your teen to be an active part of the room planning design. Let them infuse their design creativity into the plan. This way, they will feel more invested in the process and enjoy the completed room design more.

Nothing's Permanent

A Few Simple Graphics With A Big Message

I remember when my daughter and I decided to re-do her room (a long time before the ease of digital graphics). We decided to paint each wall & the ceiling a different color. All my husband kept saying was..the next people who buy this house can change this room. We had painted the ceiling a deep 3 coat layer of magenta. But there is no need to go to those lengths. With digital prints and vinyl graphics, it's easy to get a colorful design effect which will last as long as you want it to.

Custom Wallpaper

If you're looking to customize the entire room, custom wallpaper may be the option you want to consider. Vital Signs can now create one-of-a-kind wallpaper. Imagine a pattern that includes your child's school name, or maybe your child's name or possibly the school mascot. We can do it! 

The Materials

As I mentioned, customized graphics are just that. We now have materials that are as simple to install as peel and smooth vinyl. Like to change the look frequently or maybe the spouse just learned about a transfer & the house needs to be put on the market... you can put the room back to it's original state within a short period with our removable graphics.

The WORD Is...

In Living Color

Monument Sign With A Digital Message Center

Everyone has a message, and churches have a lot of them. Of course the weekly verbal message on their day of worship is the most important one. But there are various other messages that are utilized in churches and synagogues which take on different forms.

Typically a church will have a building identification sign somewhere on the lawn outside of the church. It most often will be what the sign industry refers to as a monument sign. Usually, this is a larger sign which may or may not incorporate: Lights, Digital Messaging, Changeable Letters, etc. Did you know that Vital Signs can even match your monument sign to the same material that the church is built from? (Brick, Stone, Stucco, etc.)

Some churches may opt for a smaller, more modest post and panel type sign. There is a huge variety of the signage types and materials in which to choose from. Signs that incorporate a digital messaging center allow daily or weekly variability of posted messages and information. If digital messaging is in the sign budget, the sign will easily pay for itself over time. Digital messaging provides an on-going dialogue from the church to community and travelers passing by. It is an excellent way to invite the community in and build up church membership.

Stained Glass

Stained Glass Look-Alike Window

Churches with beautiful stained glass windows leave me in awe. No matter what church I am in, I always love the beauty of stained glass windows and the story they tell. But let's face it, not every church has the budget to put in expensive stained glass windows. But Vital Signs can provide an equally colorful and attractive economical version. 

Vital Signs has access to media that can be printed on and installed into the windows for a hard-to-tell-the-difference stained glass look-alike. 

Church Backdrops

Holiday Service Backdrops

The church that we attend and I know of others like it, offer modern and creative backdrops for specific events and holiday services. It doesn't get much more impactful than to have the church and choir singing a hymn backed up by a beautifully lit background. 

Youth, Fun And Fellowship

Door Wrap With Youth Group Event

What about other signage and custom graphics throughout the church facility? In addition to the typical room number signage; ADA/Braille signs and others, Vital Signs can produce door, floor and wall wraps and in general, spiritually-themed artwork wherever you need it. No one ever said that church graphics/signage needed to be boring..in fact...just the opposite!
