Huston’s Sign Division had the privilege to work with the City of Kokomo on many of the signs at the Kokomo Municipal Stadium.  The City of Kokomo approached Huston with architectural drawings and designs and Huston offered competitive pricing and ultimately delivered in manufacturing and installing the various sign packages.  We worked closely with Ross Pierce, the City’s System Project Designer.  The sign projects came in phases as the stadium was being built and from start to finish we were involved for a year and a half with approximately 70 signs throughout the stadium.  We are grateful to have been a part of this beautiful stadium and all that it has to offer.

Huston Electric’s Sign Division is privileged to have worked with the UAW Local 685 on the sign for their new location.  The idea for this sign was a long-time in the making as we offered several options on materials and how the sign could be made.  During the design process we tried different colors and sizes and ultimately landed on this beauty. This laser cut, multi-layer sign is a one of a kind that really makes a statement with its copper detail and dimensional look. 

Check out the new channel letters at Rabb / Kinetico on 931 South in Kokomo.  These letters are front lit with Day/Night vinyl faces so during the day the letters are blue and black, but when they illuminate at night they shine white!  We also gave the existing pylon a facelift by giving the cabinet and pole a fresh coat of paint and putting in painted faces with embossed lettering.  If you could use some updates to your existing signs or are thinking about new signs then give Huston's Sign Division a call.  We'll enhance the look of your storefront with new signs that really stand out!

If you like to feel the wind in your hair and cruise the open road on two wheels then it’s likely you know JD Corey and PowerSports of Lafayette.  His incredible showroom is an aesthetic experience in and of itself, even without all of the high powered inventory.  What they lacked, however, was a way to communicate to all the traffic that passes their facility.  JD worked with us to create a monument sign with an electronic message center so that he’s not only easy to find, but he can also give his clients and the people passing by a new message every minute!  From advertising sales to letting commuters know the time and temperature to sharing community messages JD can now get Greater Lafayette his message with just a few clicks.  As you know, it’s the season for motorcycles so JD doesn’t have a lot of time during the day to work at a computer, but with his new EMC can work on messages in his free time when he is at home!  We always love working with PowerSports, and we are so thankful that they choose us once again to help them STAND OUT!

Huston Electric’s Sign Division had the privilege of working with the Kokomo YMCA on the signage at their new facility. 
All of the exterior channel letters and architectural letters were provided and installed by Huston Signs.
 
We provided (2) sets of internally illuminated LED channel letters of the Y logo reading “the” “Y” “YMCA”. 
Under the logos are formed acrylic architectural letters honoring Delmar E. Demaree for the generous contributions he
made to the Kokomo YMCA.
 
We also installed black aluminum architectural letters to a steel beam at the front entrance of the YMCA.  
 
Additionally Huston provided a variety of interior signs.  One of the interior signs is a Dedication Plaque that is precision
tooled aluminum with a black pebble texture.  Other interior signs we provided were PVC substrates with digitally printed
graphics that include gym etiquette, gym rules, and locker room information.
 
Huston has had a long-standing relationship with the Kokomo YMCA and we were honored to work with them on their
new signage for the new facility.

I recently had an opportunity to work with my good friend, Jim Anderson, on new signage for his building.  He had the façade remodeled and wanted a new sign to accompany the overall new look of the building.  His family owned business has a pretty special logo, which was designed by a childhood friend.  Jim wanted a high end, eye catching sign that would bring his logo to life so we chose to use individual illuminated channel letters with flat cut metal accents for the snowflakes. 

Eight38 Graphics did an outstanding job on our company’s new sign. Seeing it mounted on the face of our building really made me take a step back and appreciate how far we have come as a company, and as a family. I’m extremely proud that this sign will be a daily reminder of that. Thank you for such quality work.          -Jim Anderson, Owner – J.L. Anderson Heating & Cooling

As I drove by to check on the install I was blown away at how well this all came together.  I am so thankful that the Anderson’s chose me to help them with such a wonderful project, and I think their new look really STANDS OUT!

b2ap3_thumbnail_jane_Pauley.jpgHuston was given the opportunity of creating and installing a new sign for The Jane Pauley Community Health Center. Hustons team chose to go with a illuminated, face-lit channel letters style. In a clever twist we devised a way for the letters to appear black and bold during the day and bright and white at night. We were able to make this possible by using a special perforated vinyl.

We, at Huston, were excited for the opportunity to work with Marc Hackett on this project.  We believe strongly in branding and the power of marketing using nice bright and bold signage that both delivers a message during the day as well as night.  The Jane Pauley Community Health Center does an excellent job of branding their business and we are thrilled to be a part of their new location.
