12’ Replica Boot Appears on Sign Builder Illustrated magazine cover

EPS Foam Boot Sign: A Step Ahead of the Rest

Sign Builder Illustrated magazine featured a Signs By Benchmark project with Baker Sign Company on the cover of its March 2021 issue. The project included a large pole sign with a vinyl-faced cabinet sign, an electronic message center (EMC), LED accent lighting and a twelve-foot-tall replica work boot made from expanded polystyrene (EPS).

Choosing an EPS foam core allowed for a seamless presentation of the replica boot as it sits atop the Step Ahead Boots and Clothing sign cabinet. The boot was hand-sculpted and encapsulated in a signature polyurea hardcoat to give it the durability to withstand the elements. Painting was a focus throughout the project in order to achieve the look of a worn or aged work boot.
