(ASHEVILLE, N.C.) March 19, 2014 – The area’s leading sign and graphics provider, FASTSIGNS® of Asheville, recently replaced Montreat College’s exterior wayfinding signage to modernize the campus.

Montreat College Exterior Wayfinding Signage


“The college had recently undergone a rebranding and their existing campus signs needed to reflect their new, modern image while maintaining their historic mountain paradise,” said John Hornsby, Account Executive at FASTSIGNS of Asheville. “After visiting the campus, we collaborated with the college and came up with a plan to finalize a sleek design that both reflected the new branding and improved the campus’ overall wayfinding system.”

Located at 310 Gaither Circle, Montreat NC 28757, Montreat College is a private Christian liberal arts college with locations across North Carolina.

FASTSIGNS of Asheville began updating the campus’s most prominent directional sign, which was mounted between stone columns. The FASTSIGNS team designed and fabricated new aluminum panels that are three inches thick with automotive-grade paint and applied vinyl to withstand the environment. The panels were mounted between the existing stone columns to keep the campus’s mountainous feel. The location of the sign was on a slope, so the team had to ensure the panels were level across all three columns.

“The sign looks amazing; we are all so very pleased,” said Annie Carlson, Executive Director of Marketing and Communication. “Thanks to the team at FASTSIGNS of Asheville for delivering such an excellent product and we look forward to working with them for future projects.”

In addition to the exterior monument sign, FASTSIGNS of Asheville has provided Montreat College with a variety of graphics for trade shows and events, including event signage for the inauguration of the college’s new president, Paul J. Maurer, Ph. D.
