Checkers Resort Sign

CHECKERS RESORT & Conference Centre has been offering hospitality for more than 40 years in the natural bushland of Terrey Hills, just 25km north of downtown Sydney. This ideal location makes it accessible to Sydney’s northern beaches, as well as countless other attractions – Waratah Park Earth Sanctuary, Garigal national Park and Dardabong Reserve, Imperial Bonsai Nursery, and no less than four championship golf courses. Set on five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, it is a perfect venue for conference and corporate gatherings, with its well equipped rooms and recreational facilities such as gymnasium, pool, spa, sauna, flood-lit tennis and basketball courts. Recently renovated, the property offers the efficiency of modernization, while retaining its elegant and relaxed atmosphere – so it is popular for both business and pleasure.

When Checkers made their extensive renovations, new signage was part of the project. They came to Danthonia for a distinctive sign system that would be consistent and classy. Starting with their contemporary bold logo, the entry sign was rendered dimensionally, with add on panels and prism carved letters which were hand sculpted and painted. The subtext was incise carved using hand chisels as well. Made of high density urethane – a closed cell substrate that is the same density and feel as wood, these signs will outlast wood since they won’t rot, split, warp or crack like wood will do over time. The paints are Dulux Weathershield Exterior Acrylics – top of the line here in Australia where UV is at its worst. Such signs mean a real return on investment for places like Checkers – where quality makes all the difference.
