Preparing Artwork

Date: September 10, 2018 Author: Steve McVeigh Categories: Blog

As a designer who has been preparing artwork before there were personal computers, there are still many steps to consider when producing quality, precision and the best donor recognition solutions for our clients at Presidential Environment Inc. In years before the computer and graphics programs software, everything was done by hand. From the first client design brief – a site visit, sketches, measurements, photographs and meetings are done in tandem with collaborative discussions with...

Full Service Donor Recognition

Date: August 20, 2018 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

Many of our clients do not realize that we are a full service company when it comes to donor recognition. We are known for designing and creating unique donor walls, area and naming recognition, historical walls as well as other types of donor recognition and signage. What people don’t always know is that we offer a full Gifts and Awards service as well. What does that mean to customers? Well it means that we can take care of all their donor recognition, staff and volunteer recognition...

Dimensional Lettering

Date: July 30, 2018 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

You may not notice but dimensional lettering is everywhere. Outside your favourite grocery store, inside your local hospital, outside of classrooms and lecture rooms, in the lobbies of hotel and resort chains and even at the front gates of well known amusement parks.

Not only is it cost effective, but it is also high quality....

Date: July 9, 2018 Author: Steve McVeigh Categories: Blog

It always amazes me when we receive a design challenge and how many steps it actually takes to provide the best solution regarding aesthetics, function & form, cost effective production and installation.

It used to be we had more time to come up with the best design solutions. But with years of experience under our belt, and (in our case) a...

A Diamond In The Rough

Date: June 11, 2018 Author: Susanne Sukic Categories: Blog

Our city is in a constant state of evolution. As far as the eye can see, cranes tower and construction sites spread their dusty plumes while brightly coloured signs alert traffic and neighbours to the continual development. Old walls are demolished making room for the new and sometimes amalgamating the two. Sometime repurposing this history can lead to echoes of the past thorugh our future. We’re often called upon in these times of growth to prepare custom area plaques and donor...

Life after Death

Date: May 3, 2018 Author: Tammy Kim Categories: Blog

In the wake of Richard Howes’ untimely passing, his Presidential team has been wading through the waters trying to chart out a new course without our captain. It has been 5 short months since we lost Richard but in that time we have learned so much about ourselves and the skills that we have acquired through the years of working with Richard. In the past it was easy to rely heavily on his experience and knowledge by just asking “Richard do you know how…Richard do you remember this...
