WALL MURALS | Entertaining and engaging displays and wall murals for children.
Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union has been helping people in Pensacola save money and manage their finances since 1954. Unlike most credit unions and banks, Gulf Winds offers an excellent waiting area for children. Gulf Winds contracted Pensacola Sign to create an attractive and humorous wall mural for the children’s waiting area. We digitally printed the wall mural on premium vinyl with a protective over-laminate. Vinyl wall-coverings like this can be applied to just about any size wall imaginable. These wall murals create brand awareness and are highly durable using waterproof solvent inks. Wall murals and can even be applied to unique television casings like the one seen in this photo (the TV is inside the tree!)
WALL MURAL | Digitally recreating a large, faded hand-painted mural may be too much for a typical local sign shop. Good thing, Pensacola Sign isn’t your typical local sign shop.
If you know anything about Pensacola, you know about the great food, fun and, yes, occasional debauchery, that occurs at McGuire’s Irish Pub—a Pensacola staple since 1977. So, when Mr. McGuire contacted Pensacola Sign for some help turning his old, faded hand-painted exterior mural into a new, colorful and long-lasting version of itself, we were thrilled at the opportunity.
First, the Pensacola Sign team extensively photographed the existing mural to recreate the artwork from scratch in a digital format. Next, the artwork was adapted to fit Mr. McGuire’s new vision before being printed using a premium IJ480 3M vinyl to ensure long-lasting outdoor durability and appropriate application to the heavily textured stucco exterior of the pub.
After a careful, very detailed installation, the original west mural was replaced and a second east mural was added—giving this old-time favorite a refreshed feel. Better yet, the mural now lives in a digital format, should any updates be needed in the future.
Next time you’re there, be sure to take a look. Oh, and be sure to order some 18 cent bean soup while you’re at it.

WINDOW GRAPHICS | Frosted vinyl window graphics for personality and privacy.
PenAir Federal Credit Union was opening a new location on Airport Blvd in Pensacola, with mostly all glass interior walls. They requested a step and repeat of their icon to act as a privacy barrier, as well as décor. The sheer scale of the project would have made cutting etched vinyl and weeding it too costly and time consuming. Our solution was to use our white ink capability on clear premium 3m vinyl. This created the illusion of etched glass for only a fraction of the budget.
For installation, we opted to use 3M 180c-114 clear vinyl due to the comply v3 air-egress adhesive this film uses. This allowed our installers to apply the graphics quickly and without having to use application fluids. To protect the vinyl from custodial cleaning and physical damage, clear over laminate was used. All in all, the project consumed over 1000 linear feet, 24” wide, of vinyl window treatments.

REGISTER COUNTER WRAP | Create a unique environment right at the register.
Richies East, a liquor store in Pensacola, FL, needed to have a unique counter top wrap to use as advertising and tasked Pensacola Sign to do the job. To begin with, we had to take into account its unusual “U” shape. Along with much wear-and-tear on the surface of the counter top this counter was particularly challenging. The sides of the counter were wrapped with the same high quality material used for vehicle wraps. In particular, we specially laminated the countertops. We used a heavy duty floor laminate to increase the longevity of the graphics. This wrap was made to build awareness for Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum. This rum is made from a blend of nine natural spices. Counter wraps and custom vinyl graphics can be produced to fit any point of purchase application, as is the case the Richies East’s Cruzan Rum counter top.
