Exterior logos need graphical elements to stand out.
The rockfish looks excellent. True anglers and hunters will all agree that this exterior logo looks good. We don’t need to create anything new. Let’s use some of the beautiful images that God created for us. In this case, we have taken the best fish in the bayand put him up on a building for everyone to see. Such a natural and straightforward way to bring in new customers who love the great outdoors!
Hunters & Fishermen love this exterior logo.
We had just enough room to stand on the metal awning while installing the letters and logo. It looks great, and it’s so big, it’s easy to see from the highway when you are driving by. We hope this installation will bring a lot more business to Anglers. They are a locally owned small business, and everyone in Annapolis who has ever fished or hunted has spent time in this great store! They have rifles, tackle, bait, clothing of all sorts, and drinks for your cooler. So whatever you might need on the water or in the woods, you can indeed find it here at Anglers.
Our favorite exterior logo, a Custom Rockfish
We designed this jumping rockfish for Anglers, and we paired it up with their logo. The jumping fish and custom Anglers brush script look great together above the entry. First, we machine the custom rockfish shape from a sheet of one-inch white komacel (PVC). Next, the rockfish is printed on premium vinyl and applied to the komacel. Then a coating of matte clear is applied to the graphic to protect it from ultraviolet light. Next, we fasten the rockfish to the wall with lags that go straight through the face of the panel. Often we can use hidden threaded pins.
We install sign panels with lags instead of pins.
However, with a heavy installation like this, it is necessary to ensure that the large panels cannot come down in stormy conditions, so we need to secure better by running lags or screws through the face. Lags hold them permanently to the building. They cannot fall. The rooftop installation was a bit precarious, but we pulled it off! We used heavy rubber mats on the tin roof to keep our footing. Because the fish are so big, we lagged them into the building facade straight through the front of the sign with a washer for extra support. Then, all we had to do was touch up the tops of the lags with a bit of dark blue paint to hide them. Anglers is a family-owned outdoor sporting goods store in Annapolis. It’s on the south side of Route 50, heading east just a couple miles before the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. They carry everything you should ever need for fishing and hunting.
