This week we are featuring Hudson Valley restaurant Gigi Trattoria in Rhinebeck’s exterior logo as our Sign of the Week.
The restaurant, if you haven’t been (and you should!), features traditional Mediterranean dishes through the innovative use of ingredients that honor the bounty of local farms and the talents of Hudson Valley food and beverage artisans. I have to admit, the thought of their herb & salted french fries are making me drool just writing about it!
For those that are interested in the specifics, the exterior sign is made out of 1″ thick environmentally friendly Extira backer with 3/4″ thick routed dimensional white overlay made from PVC for the Gigi graphic. The word Trattoria is made from high performance plotter cut vinyl. All the paint finishes where custom matched with our Matthews Paint system.
Now we all have an excuse to go out to dinner tonight! Just tell your significant other that you need to see Gigi’s new sign!
This week we are featuring some custom routed dimensional letters we created for the Animal Emergency Clinic of Kingston!
The Animal Emergency Clinic has provided state of the art emergency and critical care to companion pets for over 20 years. As an office filled with animal lovers (Have you met Molly?) we jumped at the chance to work on this project. We started with a custom logo we designed for a previous installation and routed the letters out of 1/2″ PVC. We then painted the letters a brushed silver to contrast from the dark grey background where the letters were to be installed.
This week we’re going to show you something a little different.
This Wednesday’s Sign of the Week is a big deal, because it’s…. big! 15′ tall and 11′ wide! It’s a monument sign we did for the Rosen Group at the Price Chopper Plaza in Vails Gate, NY. This Monument sign features a header (top) panel with “Price Chopper” in dimensional letters and two deep illuminated sign cabinets for maximum visibility for tenant panels, set on custom built structural steel upright posts, complete with a metal roof.
This Wednesday’s Sign of the Week is near and dear to our hearts. It is best described in the words of Paul Beichert, Timely Signs president, who designed and fabricated it.
“Back in May of 2011, just before Levon’s birthday bash concert at Ulster Performing Arts Center, Timely Signs wanted to present Levon with a special gift for his celebration. We’d been working with Barbara O’Brien, Levon’s manager for many years and created a variety of promo items and awards for special guests who attended his Midnight Rambles. Levon wanted a sign for his barn in Woodstock where guests and performers could pose for a photo op. With all the touring and the Rambles every weekend, the plans for this sign always seemed to on the back burner and a couple of years had gone by.
When I heard about the birthday bash show, we decided we should give him the sign as a small token of our thanks for the good times he’s provided to so many of us over the years. I presented the sign to him in his dressing room right after he walked off the stage and he just loved it. I’ll always remember that big smile on his face. He was so filled with joy that night. That’s the Levon Helm I’ll always remember……”
– Paul Beichert, President
It’s the Wednesday Sign of the Week!
This week we are featuring a recent vehicle graphic for Jeff Lowe Heating and Cooling! We’re very excited for them, not only because they are introducing another box truck to their fleet, but the company is actually celebrating it’s 100 year anniversary! How wonderful is that!
This box truck had high performance plotter cut vinyl graphics installed early this week.
Note about Vehicle Graphics – Think about the time your trucks spend on the road – whether on a job, picking up material or simply grabbing lunch – your custom fleet wrap is out there letting prospective customers know about your business. Did you know that vehicle graphics can generate up to 16 million impressions a year!

This Wednesday’s sign of the week comes to you from Van Loan’s Discount Beverage, on Route 9W in Port Ewen!
Van Loan’s came to Timely Signs looking for a custom monument sign because they wanted to draw more attention to their business. They are located in a high traffic area which was set back from the road, and felt that a sign with more impact would drive more customers inside. We designed and fabricated a sign with non-illuminated flat Dibond panels routed with full color digital printing to simulate a 3D bottle shape. Sides were then contour wrapped with bronze aluminum. Coupled with these panels, is a 4’ x 4’ internally illuminated double sided sign cabinet with full color printed translucent acrylic faces to represent the label of the bottle. The entire monument stands over 16’ above grade.
Those of you that follow us on social media (Hint… Hint…) will be in for a special treat. Each wednesday we are going to be featuring a Sign of the Week! that will showcase one of our signage projects from the Hudson Valley area. Not only will we be focusing on all the various products we offer, such as banners, monument signs, and vehicle graphics to name a few, but also we’ll be highlighting the area businesses that see the importance of quality and design.
So, without further ado… Let us introduce you to our first Sign of the Week!
This sign was made for a local company who needed some recognition on a busy road in Woodstock. Many times signs get overlooked due to poor sizing and location. You need to be able to find a happy medium between size and layout in order to achieve the perfect balance. The sign was made from wood composite with painted raised dimensional letters. The bottom panel is a custom routed shape with black plotter cut vinyl.
