Following the wooden menu sign that I made for Harbour Air in Vancouver, I received an email from their Marketing Director in Victoria, BC. asking me if I would be interested in making an outdoor wooden sign for their terminal, which will be placed on the side of their dock crew shack which is located right on their float dock, facing the harbour. Harbour Air willingly flew me over to Victoria so that I could take the measurements for the size of the sign for the space they had on the side of the building, and also to discuss with them what they wanted on the sign. I flew back home (again on their dime), and worked on a quote for the cost of the sign, emailed it to them, and got approval to make the sign. Here is a photo of the completed sign, except for a couple of coats of HELMSMAN urethane which will be applied in another day or two. The sign measures 5 ft. wide by 3 ft. high. The raised lettering is 6 inches in height by 1/2” thick. The Canadian flags are also 1/2” thick baltic birch, hand painted by myself. Harbour Air has recently partnered with Kenmore Air out of Seattle, and Kenmore is now doing flights from Seattle to Victoria, sharing the dock at Harbour Air’s Victoria terminal, so they wanted a sign to welcome their American passengers upon their arrival in Victoria.
