Franchise Signs & Graphics for IMAGE Studios® of Plymouth

Zebra Visuals helped the owners of Massachusetts’ first IMAGE Studios® franchise to design, build, and install interior and exterior signs, vinyl graphics, and wall plaques that met all requirements from the corporate offices as well as Plymouth's local sign regulations.

As a result of this work, Zebra Visuals was invited by the corporate office to provide pricing and services for any new Image Studios that will open in the New England area in the future.

Helping a national franchise with our local expertise.

Franchises understand the importance of visibility and develop design and style guides to ensure each location represents the brand as the corporate office wishes, regardless of who produces the graphics.

Rich and Lori Murphy, owners of Massachusetts’ very first IMAGE Studios® location, asked Zebra Visuals to meet on-site at the beginning of the project to determine if they could rely on a local company for the signage versus the sign company recommended by the Corporate office.

The Murphys understood the benefit of working with a sign company that knows the local zoning laws, understands what inspectors look for, and has the expertise to make the project run smoothly.

An informed sign-buying experience.

During the sales process, the Murphys received a lower price quote from another sign company and asked us to review it.

Signage is complicated. For sign buyers, it can be difficult to make sense of the industry terms and understand how (and why) two quotes for seemingly similar signs can differ in price. Most often, two quotes aren't for the exact same product.

We reviewed the other quote and helped educate our client on the differences between the two prices. In this specific case, the other sign company's quote was for a sign that was smaller in size and made of lower-quality materials that did not meet the specifications required.

With this information, the Murphys ultimately decided to hire Zebra Visuals for the project.

We started by getting the exterior lighted sign approved, produced, and installed several months before the grand opening. This sign helped generate interest and attention as the interior work on the site progressed.

Following the franchise guidelines, we then produced and installed:

  • Halo Lit Reverse Channel Letters for the exterior façade
  • Interior Aluminum Dimensional Letters for the foyer wall
  • 3-dimensional studio location plaques, ADA Compliant
  • ADA Compliant signs for restrooms, utility rooms, and staff lounge
  • Photo Posters, mounted and installed with standoffs
  • Vinyl Graphics for the entrance doors
  • Custom Mural with the mission statement for the entrance area

As a result of this work, Zebra Visuals was invited by the corporate office to provide pricing and services for any new Image Studios that will open in the New England area in the future.

Zebra Visuals provided IMAGE Studios® not only with quality work but also hands-on guidance on what was best for our business needs. Paul has an extensive background and truly was an integral part of the final (gorgeous) outcome. They provided IMAGE Studios® with exterior signage, interior artwork, focal walls, and studio suite signage. During an extremely delayed and stressful interior build-out, Zebra Visuals was wonderful to work with. We highly recommend them!
