When US Bank signed on as a Western Union agent, Western Union agreed to provide a Western Union illuminated window sign for each of the 1,200 US Bank locations. The sign would identify the bank as a place to access Western Union financial services including Money Transfers, Money Orders, Bill Pay, etc. Western Union offered to provide a neon sign; however, US Bank asked for a sign that would be streamline, light weight, modern looking, "green" and inexpensive to run. The bank wanted a sign that would fit in with the upscale design and contemporary decor of their lobbies.
Everbrite designed and recommended an edge-lit sign concept to Western Union using LED lighting technology. The proposed sign was 1" thick, weighed less than 10 lbs. and was illuminated with energy-efficient and environmentally friendly white LEDs. The design was simple, clean and contemporary. Additionally, Everbrite designed it as a two-sided sign, which allowed the Western Union brand to be visible inside and outside the bank. Western Union presented the sign to US Bank and it was approved. Everbrite was awarded the contract and 1,200 signs were manufactured and shipped to US Bank.
