Adler Aphasia Center, Maywood, NJ

Posted by Cory Courtois on August 11, 2016

While Welch Sign is well known in Maine and New Hampshire as a quality purveyor of many sign types, we are also known nationally for our work on Donor Wall and Donor Recognition projects.

One recently completed project for the Adler Aphasia Center in Maywood, New Jersey occurred due to a relationship which dates back years between Welch Vice President Kathy Davis, and Adler Aphasia’s artist-in-residence at the time, Bonnie Cohen.

“(Kathy's) an expert in donor recognition and fundraising campaigns,” Cohen explained in an article published by the Jewish Standard. “She coordinates every aspect of the project -- she’s the reason I have great opportunities to create artwork for wonderful organizations all over the country.”

Posted by Cory Courtois on November 12, 2015

When Alpha One's Marketing & Communications Director John Nunan called to ask if we would support the annual Sustainable ME Awards Gala by designing and fabricating awards for the event, Welch Sign jumped at the opportunity.

"I wanted the awards to have many ADA signage hallmarks such as Braille and raised tactile letters," recounted Nunan. "Creating an Accessible Award that represents the disability community was a tall order, but we were thrilled with the final result. The Welch team embraced the challenge wholeheartedly, creating something beautiful and functional, while meeting all of our design criteria."

The striking awards, constructed from recyclable acrylics, featured a reverse engraved logo and header copy, while the award plaque employs the same photopolymer technology for creating ADA signage.

Why Wrapping a Commerical Vehicle in Maine is a No-Brainer!

Posted by Kathy Davis on June 1, 2015

Why Wrap Your Company Vehicle?

While there are many reasons for wrapping vehicles, there are two major and compelling factors for owners of commercial vehicles in Maine to wrap their trucks, cars, vans and trailers.

Protection of your asset.

Full wraps ensure every inch of your vehicle's factory paint job is protected. Given Maine's long winters and the impact of snow, ice and salt on our roads, it is impossible to protect your vehicle's finish. Welch Sign uses top quality 3M vinyl to ensure the original finish remains intact for as long as you are likely to keep the vehicle on the road.
