TM Signs and Graphics would like to share an interesting custom project we recently completed. The request came from John Tweed who is a pastor for Valley Bible Fellowship. Valley Bible recently purchased a 40 acre property that includes a full “cowboy town” as Tweed calls it. The property is used as a retreat for the church and is located deep in the mountains between Tehachapi and Lake Isabella (about an hour east of Bakersfield). They already have a jail, saloon and some other buildings. They needed custom signs made for windows that were going to be installed into the General Store. He was looking for the best sign company in Bakersfield, so naturally, he connected with TM!
John Deleersnyder , TM’s lead designer, pointed out that using gold leaf would be expensive and difficult to use. So he set to work in finding a solution that would look great and be cost effective. We secured a gold cast vinyl that looked the most like real gold. Then John started setting up the graphic files used to create the delicate cuts needed to reproduce the text and pinstriping. Here’s a small look at what these files look like before we go to print.
That was the easier part of the job.
The various elements were significantly delicate. Extreme care was needed to ensure that they were both placed safely into the correct location on the glass, and protected from migrating to the wrong position while completing the rest of the sign.
Here’s a quick video showing the detail required to make the signs.
“Creating and inlaying the embellishments was a particular challenge, but extremely rewarding. The client was looking for a solution that would allow the gold tone to be seen from both sides of the glass to mimic traditional hand-painted gold filigree of the era, and yet also be visible in low contrast and high distance situations, John said. “I worked with the client to find a material that best suited the application, and included the outlines to increase contrast and visibility. It took a lot of effort, but the results speak for themselves!”
The results were fantastic. The client called the results “Perfect!”
This was a great opportunity to help a new client with a fun and challenging custom sign project.

I had a great experience with the service I received from Michael, Trinh and TM signs and graphics. Their service was fast, high quality, and the price was affordable. I had informed TM signs and graphics that I needed the project done within a few days, so I was very impressed when it took them less than a weekend to get it done, and I was even more impressed when we spoke about the cost of the project (hint. hint. It was less than other quotes). I 100% recommend giving TM signs a try. I'm very pleased with the services they offer, and I will continue to use them in the future.Jose Figueroa

Bakersfield Signs & Graphics did an amazing job on Updating our Business Sign. Trinh was incredibly professional and thorough from the first step to the finished product. I would like to say Thank You to Trinh and the team for making this project very simple while using the best materials around. We will definitely be in touch for Future Projects! Thank you!Adam Rendon
Hats off to Trinh and her team. We needed new signage on quite a few of our office doors. Other companies we checked in with were not able to come out until the following week of our request, Trinh showed up within an hour to measure for what we needed. The work was performed within a few days perfectly! We would highly recommend giving this company an opportunity to earn your business. They did ours this time and future times to come.North Bakersfield Toyota
When the best man at my wedding was unable to make it last minute, Bakersfield Signs and Graphics came to the rescue. They custom made a cardboard cutout of the best man. It was a huge hit at my wedding and everyone loved it! They made it so fast and it looked exactly like the other groomsmen. I couldn't believe how well it turned out. Thank you so much for bringing some much needed laughs and fun during times like these.Nicole Freeman
BSG did a fantastic job re-designing the Yard Sign logo for ICO Gardening. The original picture was old and couldn't be used due to low resolution. They had to create a new one to the exact picture. They were quick and efficient in competing my order.Dominique
