Case Study

Client: Hybrid Heating & Cooling [Channel Letters]
Location:Akron, OH

We received a call from Brian Yania looking for new faces for his pole sign and illuminated lettering on his corrugated steel building in South Akron to reach the 10,000+ cars that pass his building everyday and brand his property. We met and discussed his needs and took photos. Within a week we produced designs and a proposal for his review.

The Hybrid Heating & Cooling logo has multiple gradation and shade changes. It has small stars off to the right side and it has a blue background on the bottom, which is a difficult color to push light through. It was important to over populate the letters with LED lights to create enough light to shine through these colors. It was also imperative to make sure the digital printing had enough color saturation so that light would not wash out the color. We produced sample prints for Brian’s approval to make sure the color worked. The gradation was not right on the first set but we got it right on the second test print. We made sure there was a protective overlaminate over the digital printing to extend the life of the print.

A few weeks later the sign was produced and we installed it, much to everyone’s satisfaction.

“We love our sign! Akers did a great job and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a sign.” Brian Yania, Owner, Hybrid Heating & Cooling

Customer Testimonial

Client: DeHoff Development Co.

Akers Signs is really our go to company when it comes to signage.  Being in the real estate industry we have many properties that need signs and I would say that we probably use Akers on about 85% of all the signage needs that we have.  And they’re great.  They’re responsive.  Their follow through is terrific.  Their design quality is above everyone else in the community in our opinion.  And we really enjoy working with them.  If a problem ever arises, it’s not an issue.  They always take care of it.  So we would recommend Akers to anyone.
