We recently had the privilege of working on a remarkable project at Dr. Anne Anderson High School. Our team installed a magnificent mural/sign that not only adds vibrancy to the school but also showcases the incredible potential of modern printing and fabrication techniques. In this post, we break down the details of the project and highlight the innovative printing techniques we used.

Enhancing the Space

The focal point of our work was a captivating wall mural/sign measuring an impressive 36 feet wide and 11 feet tall. This mural/sign was digitally printed in full color on aluminum composite panels (ACP) and expertly installed directly onto the drywall. The use of ACP ensures durability and longevity, making the piece a lasting addition to the school’s environment.

Stunning School Logo

To emphasize the school’s identity, we incorporated a stylized representation of the letter “A,” which serves as the logo for Dr. Anne Anderson High School. This logo was digitally cut from white Celtec and carefully installed on the surface of the ACP. Anyone entering the room will be drawn in by the stark contrast of the white against the sign’s vibrant background.

Bringing Depth with 3D Letters

To further enhance the mural/sign, we integrated 3D letters along the top, adding a captivating visual element. These letters were digitally cut from clear acrylic and meticulously installed on the surface of the ACP. Because acrylic is translucent, light can interact with the letters to give them depth and substance. The outcome is a visually appealing composition that gives the installation an additional level of interest.

Ross Sheppard High School has always been a hub of creativity and innovation, nurturing young minds and providing them with a conducive learning environment. In our ongoing partnership, PosterTech had the privilege to work on an exciting project, enhancing the school’s atmosphere with captivating murals, a stunning media wall backdrop, and eye-catching 3D fabricated text. Through this collaboration, we aimed to inspire students, foster school spirit, and create an aesthetically pleasing space for all who enter.

Unleashing Creativity with Murals

Art has the power to transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary ones, and that is exactly what we set out to achieve with our mural installations at Ross Sheppard High School. Working closely with the school administration, we brought to life breathtaking murals that showcase the school’s values, history, and diverse student body. From vibrant abstract designs to inspiring imagery, each mural tells a unique story, fostering a sense of pride and identity within the school community.

Capturing Memories with the Media Wall Backdrop

To further elevate the student experience, we created a media wall backdrop, perfect for capturing memorable moments during school events and celebrations. This interactive installation serves as a photo booth-style backdrop, offering a visually appealing setting for students to capture timeless snapshots of their high school journey. The media wall not only adds a touch of fun but also reinforces the school’s commitment to providing a well-rounded experience for its students.

Making a Statement with 3D Text

At PosterTech we believe that words have the power to inspire, motivate, and transform spaces. To amplify the impact of the murals and media wall, we incorporated 3D printed text onto the walls of Ross Sheppard High School. The visual appeal is wonderful!

Being invited back to work with Ross Sheppard High School was an immense honor for PosterTech. It is a testament to the successful collaboration and exceptional results we achieved during previous projects. We are grateful for the trust and confidence placed in our team once again. The opportunity to contribute to the school’s ongoing efforts to create an inspiring environment for students is a privilege we appreciate.

PosterTech takes pride in the opportunity to collaborate with such a prestigious institution, and we look forward to witnessing the positive impact of our work on the students’ educational journey for years to come.

Signs in school are important to communicating proper messages, branding and school building spirit. However, there may come a time when it becomes necessary to consider replacing this signage. There are a variety of reasons why this may be the case including damage or wear and tear, regulatory changes, and a lack of effectiveness. Whatever the reason, it is important to carefully evaluate the need for new signage before making a decision. Here are five key reasons why you might need to replace your old school signage.

1. The old signage is outdated:

If the old signage no longer reflects the brand image or message that you want to convey, it may be time to update it. This is especially important if the old signage is no longer in line with your current business goals or marketing strategy.

2. Improved Visibility and Safety:

Old school signage can become faded or difficult to read over time, leading to decreased visibility for potential customers. Upgrading to new signage can increase the clarity and readability, making it easier for people to find understand your message. This is not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for safety reasons. Damaged signage can be difficult to read or interpret, which can lead to confusion or accidents.


3. It doesn’t work like it used to

If the old signage is not attracting the desired attention or is not effectively communicating your message, it may be time to consider replacing it. This is especially important if you have noticed a decline in business or foot traffic that may be attributed to the ineffectiveness of your signage.

4. School Pride

Newer signage options often offer more customization options, allowing you to tailor your vision and messaging to fit the specific needs needs of your school’s admin, clubs or teams. Outdated signage can make your school look outdated as well. Upgrading to new signage can help to modernize your school and give staff students and parents a more positive impression.

5. Cost-Efficiency

While replacing old signage may seem like a large upfront cost, it can actually be cost-effective in the long run. Older signage may require more maintenance and repairs, while new signage is likely to last longer and require less maintenance. Technology has come a long way in the past years. There are now more advanced and cost-efficient sign options available, such as LED and digital signage, which can be more better for your school’s budget in the long run..

Ultimately, the decision to replace old school signage should be based on a combination of factors, including the technology available, the current state and effectiveness of the signage, and any local regulations or compliance issues.

A new addition to the EPSB roster

Thelma Chalifoux School is one of the latest additions to the Edmonton Public Schools roster and we are so excited to have participated by providing some great school signs. Located at 2845 43a Avenue, the south-east end of Edmonton, in the Larkspur neighbourhood of Edmonton, the junior high will have a capacity of up to 900 students in grades 7 to 9. Being a brand new school, the administration took the opportunity to use signage to bring some energy to the environment as well as use signage as a tool to inspire and motivate students, staff and their families.

Thelma Chalifoux; a community role model

Thelma Chalifoux was best known as a supportive teacher, Metis activist (primarily for her work in the protection of Métis culture) and being a Canadian Senator, hence the inspiration for the school’s team name. She was a firm believer in both supporting her community and assisting the most vulnerable. Thelma Chalifoux School strives to establish a learning environment that reflects her commitment to the communities she served.

Visually sharing school values

Thelma Chalifoux School puts a large emphasis on the values of accountability, collaboration, equity, and integrity. These are some values that we have in common when it comes to PosterTech’s projects. The production of Thelma’s Chalifoux’s school signs was no exception. From the beautiful Logo and School name signage in the administration office, the wonderfully colourful Senators’, Their School team, signage that lines the school and gymnasium walls, all the way to the special signage and trophy display cases.

Take a peek below at some of the school signage that is proudly displayed.

Decals and murals work great for displaying team logos,’s school models, or a special message that you want delivered to students, staff and visitors to the school.

Custom display cases are a beautiful way to give recognition to students, teams and staff on their hard work and accomplishments throughout the years. These ones were created with a combination of thick 2 inch maple frame and plexiglass fronts with stainless steel standoff hardware.
