Signarama Troy supports the Yellow Ribbon Fund!
In 2005, the father of an injured Marine introduced some local businessmen to staff members at the busiest military hospitals in Washington, DC. That very day, as they were learning which needs were not being meet, they had a chance to help a stressed-out mother.
She was far from home after rushing to be by the side of her son, who’d been wounded and medevaced out of the combat zone. She had nowhere to stay, so they made a reservation for her at a nearby hotel and paid for it. Then they found out that the hotel shuttle wasn’t available at the odd hours when she needed to get to and from the hospital. So they got her a rental car and paid for that, too. Having seen the need firsthand, those businessmen joined with others to launch the Yellow Ribbon Fund.
Founded to serve the injured coming back from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, YRF also recognized the importance of keeping the family together during the critical recuperation phase. The first programs provided free hotel rooms and apartments for visiting family members, free rental cars, and free cab rides to just about anywhere in the Washington, DC, area. They’re still among YRF’s most popular services.
The Yellow Ribbon Fund provides:
- Free hotel stays, rental cars, and cab rides for visiting family members.
- Free apartments to keep families together during months or years of outpatient treatment.
- Family caregiver support — we’re one of the only service organizations to offer childcare and family-oriented activities, plus stress-relieving massages, spa visits, dinners out, and more.
- Social events and outings to cultural and sporting events that build confidence and offer relief from the grueling rigors of recovery.
- Innovative mentoring that helps injured service members build new lives through education and career guidance.
- Ongoing support after injured service members leave the hospital and return home, to ensure no one falls through the gaps.
- Pro bono legal services when injured service members need an advocate to stand up for them.
Becky Hill from Signarama Troy supports the Yellow Ribbon Fund each year by helping the local chapter of the organization with signage needs for their annual golf fundraiser! This year she and Bianca Iacopelli had the pleasure of joining the soldiers and volunteers for dinner at Great Oaks Country Club in Rochester, MI.
Summertime typically means construction time on highways and local roads! Especially in the Metro Detroit area! At Signarama Troy we have been producing many forms of temporary construction signs for various uses throughout area roadways. A-frame signs are a great way to prominently give drivers direction and warn them of upcoming slowdowns or detours. They can be used in many different ways on the road, sidewalks, and driveways. The signs to the left are an example of temporary construction signs for an oil company to warn drivers of venting and flaring off pipeline maintenance. This example shows a yellow frame with black ready to apply vinyl applied directly on the board. We can completely customize your sign to be tailored to your needs. We offer several different types of A-frame signs to express just the right message!
Another option for temporary construction signs is to use coroplast. Coroplast is a fluted, lightweight plastic that is waterproof and durable outside. You can also use a banner to affix to fencing around the perimeter of a construction site. Any way you choose to have your temporary construction signs made, Signarama Troy has just the solution you need!

When Lauren Sherwood walked into SIGNARAMA Troy, we knew right away how important her project was about to be. Lauren needed a large scale seating chart for her wedding that was only three days away. Little did she know that our dedicated team was willing to do whatever it took to cap off the final tweaks of her already beautifully planned wedding. With an elegant predesigned crest displayed proudly in the center of the chart, we were able to achieve exactly what she was looking for in a timely manner. We were thrilled to watch Lauren’s face light up as she viewed the finished product placed inside her white frame.
This project was a definite first for me, being the new graphic designer at SIGNARAMA. I’ve been designing many different signs from golf outings to large scale channel letters, but never a wedding seating chart board! We love the way customers are continually presenting us with new and exciting projects each and every day. Even if you aren’t sure exactly what the look your going for is, we are always here to help.
According to weddinglovely.com, here are a few tips to consider when putting together your wedding seating chart:
- You don’t HAVE to put cliques together. Putting different groups together is a great way for your guests to meet one another and branch out. They’ll only be seated for the meal, so don’t think of it as segregating them from your other friends/family. They can meet up on the dance floor!
- Speaking of the dance floor. Sit those people next to it who are likely to actually get up and dance! As soon as the music turns up, they’ll be the first out of their chairs. Or, you could look even at it the opposite way and put people least likely to dance by the dance floor in hopes of getting them out there!
- Spread out the socialites! If you have any friends that can talk to a brick wall, put them at separate tables to help be a conversation starter. This is huge and will help any tables from feeling a bit awkward and will keep table conversation lively!
- Put children together. If you have kids at your reception, consider pairing the families up for dinner. Maybe they can share crayons, and the parents can share stories. If you have room, you could also do a children’s table with parents nearby.
- Make sure your vendors have a seat! They’ve all been working hard and deserve a place to sit down and enjoy a bite to eat. Well fed vendors will be eager to please you!
Come to SIGNARAMA Troy and allow us to produce your beautiful seating chart for an affordable cost and make all of your wedding dreams come true!

Throwing an event and need the pubic to know what your awesome event is all about? Want to get the most exposure for your buck? Event signage on the corners of roads in front of highly populated building areas are a great way to go. Yard signs, banners and even one of the many sign twirlers can you help you get the most exposure for your event signage. Now you may want to over load your signage with the best possible information for your event, meaning you are looking to tell them everything that is going on from A to Z. This is not the best practice for roadway signage.
Typically when throwing an event as awesome as let’s say Comic-Con you want people to know everything to attract anyone that could possible want to come. Which typically means you want the most information on any type of signage you do. Giving people most information is never a bad thing until it comes to event signage on roadways. Less is more because of the attention span you have of the drivers that will be passing by your sign. They will anywhere from 3-5 secs to read all the information you are throwing their way. The best information is listed below:
- Name of the event
- Place of the Event
- Website or phone number to get additional information
These are the top things to include in your sign for the best bang for your buck and also keeps you in your less is more category. We use most of this simple information for all our yard and banner signage that would go next to a roadway. Listing a website can direct your event followers to any other additional information they may need.
Here at SIGNARAMA we help a lot of new and old sign buyer with things like the amount of information on a roadway sign or building sign. We have the experience to help you get off your feet with your event signage and make sure that everyone can get the information they need to come.
