After many years with only a weathered wooden sign to identify their church, those at Issaquah Christian Church knew that it was time for a change. After the challenging task of obtaining a permit for an internally illuminated sign had been successfully completed, the search for the right sign company began.
"We quickly found that there are numerous sign companies to choose from and many varieties of signs," said Beverly Lewis, Office Manager at the church. "We wanted a reputable sign company, one that would help us through the process and focus on the best type of sign for our needs."
After seeing their advertisement in a popular church magazine, the sign committee decided to contact Stewart Church Signs. "Stewart's brochure and video arrived in short order and were both very impressive. The committee agreed that we need look no further." The Stewart Church brochure showed the committee all of the different types of sign styles that were available to them, while the video gave them an idea of what a powerful outreach tool the sign could be.
"When we contacted Stewart, they set us up with our very own consultant who worked closely with us throughout the entire process. Our every question and concern was resolved quickly with just a phone call. On the other hand, Stewart's consultant asked the right questions as well. We were asked about things like traffic patterns and speed limits in the area that our sign would be situated. That way, we would be sure to get a sign that had letters large enough for those traveling by to read it."
After working with the church, their Stewart consultant helped them choose the sign best suited for their needs, even sending in their official church logo to be added to the header of the sign. The church went with three rows of six inch letters to make sure that their message would be easily read by the 40mph traffic that goes by. "We are very pleased with our beautiful, illuminated, double-sided sign. We have visitors as a direct result of the sign; it is not unusual to hear compliments about it. We happily recommend Stewart Signs to anyone considering a new church sign."
