Bespoke Signage Rebrand
Banff Sign Co. had the pleasure of manufacturing and installing the signage rebrand of all the interior and exterior signs at the Prince of Wales hotel in Waterton National Park. The original building was designed in a Rustic architectural style. As a result, the building is primarily made of wood materials for its construction, cladding and detailing. The majority of the lumber was provided by a sawmill in Somers, Montana. The Prince of Wales Hotel is one of Canada’s grand railway hotels, and the only one originally built by an American company, Great Northern Railway. The hotel was designed by Thomas D. McMahon, with construction contracted to Oland and Scott Construction of Cardston, Alberta in 1926. The Prince of Wales Hotel opened in 1927.
Interior and Exterior Wayfinding Systems
This signage project consisted of massive 12×12 Douglas Fir Posts with 24k Gold Inlay. The beautiful posts support the Western Red Cedar Sign with 24k Gold Leaf on a beautiful emerald stain. Being that this hotel has a rustic vibe, we opted to create custom made wood signs for all interior directional signs. To add to the elegance of the property, Banff Sign Co. ordered custom made brass mounting hardware to support the beautiful entrance signs. All interior hotel room number signs are made of thick brass with aluminum dimensional numbers.
Banff Sign Company worked with Evans Hunt and Pursuit Collection to successfully manage this project and complete the entire installation in 24 hours using our professional sign installation crew.
