Lykins-Signtek supplies signage for the campus of Naples’ thriving First Baptist Church and Academy, and since the football stadium was expanded a few years ago, we have been trusted with the annual installation of banners covering the entire length of the main grandstand. The banners on the north and south side of the press box are nearly 40 and 50 ft long and use high-resolution digital images of the Lions in action. The banners shield the view of the back of the bleachers and provide some shelter from the wind, but most importantly, they set the tone for a great game. Go Lions!

A long-standing, local client of Lykins-Signtek asked us to provide all the signage for a major renovation to their Quarterdeck Resort property on Gull Lake in Minnesota. This request came with a very tight deadline and consisted of a number of custom-routed wall-mounted and hanging signs made out of high-density urethane as well as some street signs. The larger double-sided hanging signs were built with a “hidden” internal aluminum structure for support. As part of this project we also had to recreate a classic “Phillips 66” gas station sign, something our production team enjoyed doing for some nostalgic reason! However intricate the signs, they were nothing out of the ordinary for our guys and we built and finished them expediently; what was a bit different was the need to pack and ship them so they would get to Minnesota in pristine shape. Our ever-resourceful Pete Lykins stepped in to help build a custom 10 foot long packing crate, carefully bracing each individual sign, much like framed art. Pete later travelled to Gull Lake himself to supervise the installation of the signs – and hopefully enjoyed some bass fishing while he was there!

Last Friday, we removed the old mailboxes and installed 41 new double decorative mailbox sets for all 82 homes in the Ventura neighborhood in Pelican Marsh, in one day. It was an intensive and highly productive day of work for a team of 6, led by Pete Lykins, but they still managed to be “a good crew and pleasant guys” in the process, according to Mr. Weisberger, President of the Ventura HOA.
We also repainted all the lamp posts in the neighborhood to match the gloss black of the new mailboxes – and upgraded all lights to LED while we were at it. Our thanks to Southwest Property Management for yet another great opportunity.
Last week we completed the first phase of Toll Brothers’ new Azure at Hacienda Lakes development signage. From final approval of design proof & contract on Tuesday 1/24 to completion on Friday 1/27, our team fabricated, painted, assembled and installed 21 all-welded aluminum post-and-panel signs with vinyl graphics in a record 3 days. Hats off to our crew! By the way, we also build the custom, all-aluminum street & traffic signs for this community.
