Field Trip to DāNite Sign Company

Field Trip to DāNite Sign Company

Everyone loves a good field trip! According to the International Sign Association (ISA), “Some 2,630 students of all ages visited sign, graphics, and visual communications companies as part of Sign Manufacturing Day 2016. The event is sponsored annually by the International Sign Association in conjunction with the National Association of Manufacturers. This year, 46 locations opened their doors to students throughout the U.S. and Canada. DāNite Sign Company was one of them!                            Students from the Eastland Career Center and Southwestern City Schools got to tour DāNite’s 33,000 sq ft facility and see examples of the diverse variety in trades required in the production a single sign. From administrative and sales staff, project managers, estimators, graphic designers, engineers, steel workers, welders, electricians, painters, printers, crane operators, service techs, and helpers, it takes all sorts of skilled tradesmen and women working together towards a common goal of excellence to produce each and every sign. Many students claimed that the filed trip was an eye opening experience and expressed interest in pursuing a career in the sign industry. Mission accomplished!   http://danitesign.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/CHANNEL-COIL-MACHINE-VIDEO.mp4   The International Sign Association reported in a press release on their website:  “We’ve seen companies make hires as a direct result of participation in previous Sign Manufacturing Day events,” said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. “This program, and the ongoing relationship that it affords participants to develop with local community colleges, technical schools and high schools, will go a long way toward addressing the challenge of finding skilled workers.” DāNite Sign Company can attest to that!     After Sign Manufacturing Day last year,...

Signs of Early Voting

Signs of Early Voting

Early voting started on October 12th in Ohio. But before the casting and counting of ballots could begin, the Franklin County Board of Elections had one heck of a hurdle to cross in updating an existing, rusting pylon sign to something worthy of hailing the droves of citizens who would cast their 2016 General Election votes. DāNite Sign was up to the challenge. They took a nasty, deplorable sign and made it great again! All joking aside, this was truly a sizable undertaking. The nearly 34′ tall sign at 1700 Morse Rd in Columbus had been in disrepair for years.  There were three signs in one, really, and each one was 6′ 6″ tall and 25′ long with concave cabinets! Sometimes it’s hard to grasp the size of something until you get on top of it. And sometimes you don’t get a real grasp on the enormity of something until you bring it indoors. These signs dominated DāNite’s 33,000 square foot administrative & manufacturing facility! On Monday, Oct. 10, one day before a dozen eager first-time voters pitched their tents in the parking lot to be the first in line to exercise their civic duties & rights, DāNite Sign Company arrived to install the massive signs on the tri-pole structure. As planned, it was completed before early voting commenced. The difference was like night and day! Or Day and Night… DāNite is proud to say that they gained the co-operation of various government entities and a private entrepreneur to complete this project on time. Special thanks go out to The Stonehenge Company, Franklin County Board of Elections, the Columbus Department of Zoning and Building, and...

Big, bright, and coming to downtown… Red, White, & SIGN!

Big, bright, and coming to downtown… Red, White, & SIGN!

You’ll be able to check out more than fireworks in Columbus this July as the DāNite team works to install a brand new, one-of-a-kind, Electronic Message Center sign at 101 South High Street. Located in the heart of downtown, the sign will be sure to catch your attention especially considering its, soon to be, three-story stature. According to DāNite’s Senior Project Manager and Engineer, Michael Cox, “There are no other sign installations like this one in Central Ohio”. Work on this EMC started three years ago and DāNite Sign Company was excited to partner with the Condominium Association, Lineheart Media, and the Schottenstein’s to further develop the sign idea. DāNite’s main role was in engineering the attachment of the sign. Installation will begin this Sunday, June 5th, and will be completed in early July.   The sign has a three element design: a mesh video screen, a ticker, and a flat square ticker. The mesh screen is composed of 117 components and has translucent technology, which allows viewers on the inside of the building to see through the sign. The translucency also allows outside viewers to see through the sign when it is turned off. This remarkable construction technique works to preserve the architectural components of the building, which was built in 1920. Each LED light in the sign is positioned 23 mm apart, a typical matrix for billboards with LED lighting. What makes this sign truly unique is the fact that each LED light has an individual address which allows it to portray video, much like a television screen. The team plans to construct as much of the sign as possible in house,...
