The devil is in the details.
Business owners can certainly relate to that statement as there are countless details in starting and running a successful business. Commercial lighting may seem like a no-brainer, but a good eye for design (either your own or a professional’s) and easy-to-customize Angle Shade Sign Lighting can create the finishing touch that will help set your business apart from the competition.
Angle shade lighting is a great choice for commercial venues because of its versatility. Styled after gas station lights of the early 20th century and an obvious choice for exterior signs, these fixtures can also be used to highlight landscaping,... Read More
Rolling down the highways through the heart of the Kentucky bluegrass country, you are sure to spot an abundance of barns. Barns of all shapes and sizes dot the hillsides and farms where cattle, crops, and, yes, horses are tended each day.
If you’re lucky enough, you might spy a barn like David’s which sports a beautiful barn quilt painted on the side. The painting of quilts on barns began as a kind of grassroots, community art movement and there are thousands of these paintings all over the country. A website dedicated to the Barn Quilt Trails notes that there are about 800 barn quilts in Kentucky alone.
David lives in Danville and had the quilt painted... Read More
The finishing touch to any space can take many forms — a perfect throw pillow on a new couch, hand-crafted drawer pulls on kitchen cabinets, a stunning sign light over a piece of artwork. The finishing touch is what takes a project from simply finished to simply fantastic.

Many business owners spend a lot of time and money on the signage and logo that define their brand. And why not? Your brand is a critical component of your business and the look that people come to identify with you and your product. But once you perfect the logo and install the perfect sign, the job is not quite finished.
Making sure the public can actually see the sign is the final step and one that requires thoughtful and appropriate exterior lighting. Our friends at Russell Automotive recently updated their logo and installed a new sign on their building in Apopka, Florida, just north of Orlando.
“We have been in business for 33 years and in this location for... Read More
Any professional will tell you that repeat clients are often the best. A relationship has been established, personal nuances ironed out, and it’s like old friends getting together to discuss a new project. Krister Lile, owner of Plank Island Studio in Aberdeen, Washington, was thrilled to hear from his friends at the West Coast Hearing Clinic when the need arose for some commercial sign lighting at their new location.
“We overhauled the public portion of their home a few years ago and when they began exploring a new location, they brought us in to make everything work in terms of design,” Krister says. The project is a back alleyway where the owners... Read More
