Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries Costa Mesa Vinyl Decal Installation

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries recently opened their location in Costa Mesa Ca.  The sign company was having problem with finding an installer for the decals on the interior of the store.  They did some searching and was referred to Le Tourneau Painting.  We quickly met them on location and wrote up a proposal, which was accepted on the spot and the next day we started the install.  The installation of the vinyl decal below the counter went on without any problems.... the larger signs on the sides of the restaurant were an entirely different story.  The walls already had a wall covering on it that was painted over with the colors of Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries had a texture on it that consisted of small bumps that were roughly a mm in diameter with spaces between them of about 3 mm.  This posed a problem for the vinyl decals adhesion to the wall.  The decals were only sticking on the tops of those bumps and were not remaining flat on the wall.  I quickly picked up the phone to call my sister in Canada who owns a print company for advise.  She was unable to help because we were unable of the exact materials we were using. 

To make a long story short, the manufacturer advised me to heat up the material which would slightly shrink the vinyl and allow it to stick.  From there the install went like clockwork.

Once the decals were up and looking great, they asked me to install the signs on the walls,  which is not really my thing.  Usually I do not do work unrelated to the painting and wallpapering business, but this time we hung them for them. 

You will have to go check out their menu, I know I will!

Le Tourneau Painting offers a variety of wallpaper and decal
installations on many surfaces.  We also have a print company available

Vinyl Installation on the walls of the offices of Tickets.com

Sunday, April 22, 2012

At Tickets.com corporate headquarters in Costa Mesa, Orange County California Le Tourneau Painting was originally called to give a price to paint various text on the walls of the office walls.  During the "walk through” we discussed the option of using vinyl letters.  For the amount of lettering they were asking for, the project was more cost effective if we used vinyl vs the time of painting each saying or slogan.  Often times companies think that the installation of vinyl on the walls is much more expensive than painting.  It turns out there is a formula for that.  The cost of the vinyl and time to install vs the paint materials and time to physically paint the letters.

How the vinyl lettering installation was done. 

Previous to showing up on site, Le Tourneau Painting forwarded all the information "the vinyl text to be installed” to the printer to have the vinyl cut at the correct sizes.  This took about a week to get the materials in hand.  Once we had the vinyl in hand we contacted Tickets.com to schedule the install.

We arrived at TICKETS.COM location in the am of April 11, 2012 at 7:00am. Our customer was there to meet us and ask a few simple questions.  We did a walk around with our contact to verify where each "saying” was to be placed and discussed the height on the wall etc.
