He worked with sign makers from SignsNow to carefully take down the metal lettering that (as far as we can tell from period photos) have been on the front of the College Station lab since it was built in 1969. The sign makers then repainted the lettering and returned them to the wall.
We thought it would be a major challenge to find an “A&M” that would match a typeface from the 1960s. But the sign makers used a computer to find the right font. The whole project took far less time and cost a lot less than we anticipated.
Our labs in Amarillo, Center and Gonzales are in the process of changing their signs as well.
