High School Mascot Gymnasium Graphics
Connecting Signs works with several construction companies in Northern Colorado. One of them recently contacted us to provide signage for a new school gymnasium for Yuma High School in Yuma, Colorado. We have done many signs for schools – banners, wall graphics, ADA room signs, dimensional lettering, etc. This project was a little different. The signs needed were wall graphics with the school mascot and some lettering and were to be painted.
Creating the Mascot with Stencils
The school mascot graphic was to be painted on a white cement block wall with the logo featured in two colors. The first step was to separate the red and the black graphics in our design program. Then we used paint mask vinyl to create the design and we plotted two separate stencils for the red and black layers. The mascot is three total colors – white, red, and black. The first stencil was used for the red, the second stencil for the black, and the white is the wall color. The other set of graphics was white lettering, done the same way with a stencil – white painted letters on red. Because there was only one layer of colors, this graphic was easier to prepare for installation, but these were huge stencils so a ladder and lots of tape was necessary!
