SMC: How large is the facility?
DR: The company has undergone three large-scale facility expansions—the most recent being 2017 for upgrades in efficiency and to reduce our environmental impact. This improvement included a partnership with Recyc-Quebec, the Quebec society for recovery and recycling, and other organizations, which has led to 80 per cent reduction in operational waste. Our 3066-m2 (33,000-sf) facility was extensively renovated and set up strategically to allow seamless communication across all the departments right through our high-level production spaces.

SMC: What type of signage does your shop primarily make?
DR: Sticky Media is a one-stop shop for all your visual media needs. Our priority is to offer the highest-quality products and services at competitive prices to ensure our customers’ satisfaction. We specialize in wall signs; pylon signs; sidewalk signage; large-format banners; informational signage; window, floor, and vehicle graphics, and much more.

SMC: What type of projects have you been working on recently?
DR: We are currently working on a set of channel letters, trying to combine new and old technologies. For this project, we are using open-faced letters with light-emitting diode (LED) neon rope, which will lend a chic retro look to the sign. We are also working on complete store builds for various restaurants. These projects incorporate both our signage and millwork departments. Such jobs are always fun and challenging.

Sticky Media consists of three rapid output divisions—millwork, large-format printing, and signage solutions—that work closely under one roof to ensure our quality and service are regularly monitored.

SMC: How much of the signmaking process is handled in-house?
DR: The entire signmaking process is handled in-house. Our team brainstorms ideas with clients to understand their unique needs and bring their dream projects to reality. We also take care of the design, build, sign permits, and installation, adhering to all municipal bylaws and guidelines.

SMC: What tools/equipment do you currently use to complete your sign projects?
DR: We use a variety of tools to complete our projects. We often incorporate different materials to give our signs a unique, edgy look. For example, we often use our millwork department to incorporate wood into our projects and also make use of our print department. That said, we have a range of equipment, including a channel bending machine, a laser machine, two computer numerical control (CNC) routers, metal benders, a full paint shop where we can match any colour in-house, a complete millwork section, two I-cut machines, and two flatbed printers.
