In the fast-paced world of real estate, timely and accurate signage is a cornerstone of effective marketing. Coldwell Banker Gundaker, being a major player in the St. Louis market, needed a reliable partner to manage its extensive and diverse signage requirements.

With nearly a decade of collaboration, Presign has fine-tuned its services to meet Coldwell Banker Gundaker’s unique needs. Operating out of their St. Peter’s MO warehouse, Presign employs a “masters” process. In step one, signs are pre-printed with general corporate branding elements like logos, borders, and backgrounds. Then, customized messages are added as specific orders come in.
In addition to this streamlined production process, Presign maintains an inventory of over 10,000 various signs, all wrapped and ready to ship. This allows them to offer same-day shipping for all in-stock items, complete with essential hardware such as stakes, pins, toppers, and ‘take one’ boxes.
The harmonious integration of Presign’s master-based production and just-in-time inventory management has resulted in considerable time, money, and effort savings for Coldwell Banker Gundaker. The availability of same-day shipping of in-stock signs meets the company’s demanding operational requirements, solidifying Presign as a strategic and invaluable partner in their nearly decade-long relationship.

Brinkmann Constructors specializes in the construction of office and retail buildings on a national scale, a portfolio that includes projects for the Kohls department store chain.

Recognizing the intricate needs of a large-scale commercial contractor, Presign designed a multi-faceted solution. This involved the provision of construction signs in over 50 variations to all of Brinkmann’s properties across the U.S., as well as complete commercial truck wrapping featuring lettering and brand imaging.
To maximize efficiency, Presign implemented a two-step “masters” production process. The first phase involves printing corporate elements like logos, borders, and backgrounds. The second phase is activated when specific orders are placed, at which point custom messages and location-specific data are added to the signs.
The strategic implementation of the “masters” production method resulted in a streamlined manufacturing process that aligns perfectly with Brinkmann Constructors’ needs. This approach has saved both time and money, providing Brinkmann with the capability for quick adjustments and additions to their signage as their construction projects evolve. The partnership ensures that Brinkmann Constructors can confidently handle their diverse portfolio of office and retail spaces, knowing they have a reliable partner in Presign for their high-volume and multifaceted signage needs.
