Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County chooses Timely Signs to assist in the branding of new offices
Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County called on Timely Signs to develop an interior and exterior signage system for both their new Kingston office at 910 Ulster Avenue in the Town of Ulster, and for their new corporate headquarters at 1910 Route 9 in the Town of Poughkeepsie.
Working closely with the architect and the administrative staff at OADC, Timely Signs developed an interior sign system that meets the clients goal of being flexible and modern while meeting the requirements set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Americans with Disabilities Act (also known as ADA Compliance) requires all room signs to have raised tactile lettering and grade II Braille. The sign system and interior wayfinding navigation were developed with consistency in mind to create a uniform look for all of OADC’s offices moving forward.
From interior directional signs and custom brochure holders, to internally illuminated channel letters on the exterior of the building, Timely Signs was there every step of the way. From the initial concepts and design, to permitting and fabrication, the staff at Timely Signs worked tirelessly to ensure a quality image for Orthopedic Associates of Dutchess County.
Working with the team at Timely Signs has been wonderful. We can’t stop talking about how great everything looks, and have already recommended them to other Hudson Valley organizations!

Rondout Savings Bank is a hometown bank currently celebrating 140 years of excellence in service to the Kingston community and surrounding areas. In 2011, they retained the services of Frank Campagna and his team of designers at ColorPage, formerly Tri-State Litho, with the task of developing a new identity for the bank and implementing it across all of the their print and electronic media. When it came time to rebrand the exterior signage of their four branch locations, they called on Timely Signs to develop and implement a complete package of exterior signage using their new identity.
Paul Beichert of Timely Signs worked closely with the bank’s administrative staff and with ColorPage on the design, planning and budgeting of the project.
After complete surveys of all locations were performed, we found that this project was as much about removing outdated and redundant signs as it was about branding. Beichert said about the process. Not every sign that was in place needed to be re-branded or even needed to be there at all. By removing, in some cases, half of the signs and replacing them with a few, well-designed and accurately placed signs, the overall look of every site was improved.
Timely Signs team handled all aspects of the project including the design, budgeting, permit filing and approvals, manufacturing, removals and installations. Many of the signs that were in good shape were re-conditioned, saving a substantial amount over the cost of installing all new signage. The benefits greatly by have a clean, consistent and modern image across all four of the their branches.
