Signs Now Donates DOC Band Wraps to Special Needs Children

Businesses and professionals in Boca Raton, Florida are about to get branded! Signs Now Boca Raton opened on February 5, 2013 at 6560 East Rogers Circle in Boca Raton. The 3,000-square foot facility will employ a team of seven people. After spending the last three years in Margate, the Boca Raton franchise of the national signage company is relocating to Boca Raton. Signs Now Boca Raton will offer a range of high-quality services, including: ADA Braille Signs, 3D Lettering, Banners, Digital Graphics, Post & Panel Signs, Tradeshow Branding, Vehicle Graphics and Wraps, Wall Logos and Graphics, POS signs, and more.

To celebrate the opening, Signs Now Boca Raton has committed to providing at least 100 DOC Band wraps free of charge to special needs children in South Florida in 2013. Signs Now Boca Raton has already donated more than thirty DOC Band (a device for the head which consists of an outer plastic shell with a foam lining) wraps to children suffering from Plagiocephaly. Plagiocephaly is a condition characterized by an asymmetrical distortion (flattening of one side) of the skull.

“I am thrilled to be opening Signs Now Boca Raton and bringing our high quality services and second-to-none customer service to the Boca Raton market. We will now be able to service the growing needs of all of our customers,” said Mary Sol Gonzalez, owner of Signs Now Boca Raton. “I am also thrilled to help bring attention to kids with Plagiocephaly and potentially bring a smile to their faces with a brand new DOC Band wrap!”

I wanted to find a way to make him want to wear it and feel good about wearing it,” said Andrea S. Patenaude. “Signs Now Boca Raton was recommended and it was a great experience from beginning to end. They set me up with an amazing designer who not only made a fabulous design using the characters that Logan loves, but let us participate in the wrapping process. Signs Now made a process filled with uncertainty, certainly great.”

Signs Now Boca Raton has already met the signage and graphics needs of numerous local Boca Raton businesses and organizations including SAMANDHEL, an import/export and sourcing company; Boca Raton Christian School; Boca Aircraft Maintenance; and many more.

According to, cities and towns are where growth lies in 2013, and at the center of it all is digital signage. Gonzalez is not surprised; she’s seen the first hand results for many of her clients. Research firm OTX says 63 percent of adults surveyed admit that advertising on digital signage “catches their attention”; according to studies, a car wrap can receive nearly nine million views in one year; and a 2012 Harvard University study that observed student behavior found that actions can be ‘nudged’ by social forces, including branded tent cards. All of which will now be designed, developed, and printed in the new Signs Now Boca Raton facility.
