Fighter Plane decal- Danbury CT

plane decal

Mustangs, Mitchells, Catalinas, Flying Fortresses, Liberators, Corsairs. Combat aircraft that were everyday companions to airmen in the World War II generation have become extraordinary treasures to many in the next: symbols of the courage and sacrifice that even younger generations have come to regard as part of the national identity. The United States produced more than 300,000 airplanes in World War II.

Museums across the country have preserved and display these airplanes; some are exhibited in public spaces like Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, where a solitary F4F Wildcat honors Navy Medal of Honor winner Butch O’Hare.

One of our customers came in and wanted special decals for a World War Two fighter plane, North American P-51 MustangThe North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in 1940 by North American Aviation in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission.

What does P 51 stand for?

In 1948, the designation P51 (P for pursuit) was changed to F-51 (F for fighter) and the existing F designator for photographic reconnaissance aircraft was dropped because of a new designation scheme throughout the USAF.

Our customer wanted two decals on the plane. He called it a flying memorial for a good friend that passed away, Capt, Bill “Papa” Jenson and the other decal (the other side of the plane) is for his wife ‘Geri”. Most pilots from WW2 named their planes after their girlfriends or wife.

To do the plane decal we did the following: We use vinyl material and cut and weed out the letters. We put this on application tape. The customer then applied the letters to the plane. The plane was at his place. If you are interested in vehicle lettering or number, check out our website at unltdsigns.com

Chrome Indian Motorcycle cover

Who founded Indian Motorcycle?

 In 1897, George M. Hendee founded a bicycle production company called the Hendee Manufacturing Company. The bicycles carried brand names such as Silver King, Silver Queen, and American Indian, which was shortened to simply “Indian” and became Hendee’s primary brand name.

The first Indian Motorcycle was sold to a retail customer in 1902, and later that year an Indian Motorcycle won an endurance race from Boston to New York City in its public racing debut. Racers went on to win events and establish records riding Indian motorcycles:

 What is so great about the Indian Motorcycle?

 Becoming America’s First Motorcycle Company

In 1901, bicycle manufacturer, racing promoter, and former bicycle racing champion George Hendee hired Oscar Hedstrom to build gasoline engine-powered bikes to pace bicycle races. The machine he created proved to be powerful and reliable, establishing the company’s reputation for outstanding performance. Later that year the company’s first factory was established in downtown Springfield.

 The first Indian Motorcycle was sold to a retail customer in 1902, and later that year an Indian Motorcycle won an endurance race from Boston to New York City in its public racing debut. Racers went on to win events and establish records riding Indian motorcycles:

 The early 1920s were important years in the rise of Indian Motorcycle as several iconic motorcycles were introduced to the public. Unfortunately, Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company ceased operations and discontinued production of all models in 1953. 2010 Indian Motorcycle is coming back with a bright future upon our legendary past through technological innovations, rewarding partnerships, and an ever expanding lineup of authentic, iconic bikes. For more history about Indian Motorcycle goto https://www.indianmotorcycle.com/en-us/history/

The making of a military(Marine) clock, Wingdale, NY

 

making of a military clock

A customer wanted something special for her boss. Her boss got a promotion and was leaving to Arizona. She wanted to buy a special gift to give to her boss. Originally she wanted a name plate for her boss’s new desk in Arizona. But we did not have the plaque material in stock. She needed the gift right away. We tossed around a few ideas that we could make in one day. One item we knew we had in stock was a round glass clock. Since we had the clock materials in stock,  we decided the clock will work. Knowing about the customer’s boss, we suggested that the numbers on the clock be rifles since the boss was a shooter in the Marines. Since we are proud of our military, we have all the military logos. We used the Marine logo in the middle of the clock and his name on top. The customer was so excited.

 How to make a custom clock. All you need is an imagination of what you want on the clock. If you want a picture, the picture should be high resolution such as 300 pixil per inch. Make sure you know the numbers on the clock will be over the picture. If you want lettering or logos, just let us know what you want. Unlimited Signs, Designs and Graphics will help you create a custom clock.

Custom Clocks are great for offices, kids rooms and other types of space. It tells a story, idea or it is just plain funny.

It is a frame on the wall that tells the time and if it is custom tells a story of who you are, what you like and want to show off.

ATV Lettering for Sherman Volunteer Fire Department, Sherman, CT

Sherman ATV lettering

What is an ATV:

 All Terrain Vehicle or in short called as an ATV is basically a Land-based automobile capable of reaching remote areas where normals cars/bikes cannot reach. The main focus of an ATV is to provide comfortable and safe in uneven terrains. They function in environments like River banks, mountains, snow, Forests etc. Pretty much anywhere taking your everyday cars/bike isn’t practical.

 Why does a Fire Department use ATV:

 The same reason why we use the ATV it gets you places where your own vehicle cannot do. So, when there is an emergency and you cannot get to the place due to no access, the ATV is a good vehicle. Most of this vehicle need to have signage on them to indicate they are a fire department and you need to yield for an emergency.

John Tardy from the Sherman Volunteer Fire Department had a fundraiser in mine. The purpose of the fundraiser is to 1)provide an aspect of engaging family and children to take part in community participation. To know your neighbors in case of an emergency, increase your awareness of people who you are surrounded by and most of all 2) To have funds available so you will have the up to date fire equipment needed to save your life.

John Tardy asked us to do their ATV lettering. He gave us the font and color. To do this process, we use our X rite system and we cut the letters using our plotter. We then weed the letters and put the paper application on it. Then we put the letters on the ATV and peeled the paper.

John Tardy loved the job we did. If you are interested in putting letters on your ATV. Either stop by our shop at Unlimited Signs, Brookfield CT, go to our website at unltdsigns.com or call at 203-546-7267.

Pin Mounted- Building Sign, Newtown MediSpa, Fairfield,CT

Newtown Medispa pin mounted sign

While we were installing the channel letters and pin mounted signs, I wanted to find out how people like their spa treatment.  Here is a list of people responds:

If you want a top star place for a Medispa, Newtown Media is your answer. Here is a list of happy customers: Covered garage steps away from a sparkling, restful lobby. Everything and everyone is relaxed and welcoming. Fairfield’s Tanya M. explained each option and each step so that this nervous client was put at ease. I came away with an appropriate treatment which was subtle and met my specific needs.

  I did a LOT of research before choosing Newtown MediSpa. I am in the medical field myself and I am very cautious with my care. I have been to other medical offices for procedures in the past and have been receiving treatments for quite some time.

Well, I have never had such beautiful results. I look natural but I look 10 years younger. The facility is sterile and the staff is thorough and complete in their care. I am so so satisfied and will surely be returning. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.I am so pleased with Newtown Medispa. I see Deb, who is truly committed to the care and well being of the individual. She is a master at her craft and spends quality time on treating your specific needs detailing each treatment to look …

I am new to the MediSpa scene but have enjoyed getting to know Newtown MediSpa and what they have to offer. They are quick to greet you as you arrive in their lovely and tranquil waiting room. The staff is both pleasant and professional. 
The entire space is bright and beautiful, and just as important…very clean. 
I had the microblading treatment, and the result was PERFECT. I could not be more, please! I was nervous to do something semi-permanent, but Lacie created the perfect shape for my face. I would encourage anyone who is unhappy with their brows to consider this treatment. 
I am looking forward to scheduling more treatments at Newtown MediSpa, as they help me look my best!

Well, the list goes on and on.

 Debra loved the Pin Mounted Building sign at the back of the building. If you are interested in Pin Mounted sign, just call us at 203-546-7267 or check us at our website at unltdsigns.com
