Global music retailer Sweetwater Sound experiences massive expansion and growth

Graycraft Signs of Warsaw has worked closely for several years with Sweetwater Sound, Inc. in Fort Wayne, IN on various sign projects. Sweetwater Sound opened 40 years ago in Fort Wayne, and it's become the country's most respected dealer of high-tech equipment for musicians, recording studios and broadcasters.

ELECTRONIC LEDs: Graycraft conducted numerous drive-bys, fly-bys and computer mock-ups to cultivate a final design. A supersized, dynamic-digital sign would provide an effective marketing tool and information source. Watchfire Signs (Danville, IL) was chosen and two, 12mm-pixel EMCs, each measuring 15 ft. 6 in. high x 28 ft. wide and weighing 7,500 lbs. Installation of the DS display required two and a half days. Message centers were put in place with a Central Crane 40-ton, hydaulic crane. The two message centers utilize 1.4 million LEDs. The color spectrum is 73.7 quintillion colors and is 370 in on the diagonal.

CHANNEL LETTERS: To identify the property and complement the supersized display, Graycraft Signs produced 4 ft tall channel letters, which comprised of hand-fabricated aluminum forms and acrylic faces, and are halo-lit with SloanLED white modules.

Marshall County Crossroads Stellar Community Project

Marshall County was selected as the 2019 Stellar Communities designee. The region includes Argos, Bourbon, Bremen, Culver, Lapaz, and Plymouth. Marshall County Crossroads was selected to receive more than 13 million in grants to implement its regional development plan.

In January of 2020, Marshall County Crossroads announced the construction of new LED electronic signs to improve communications with residents and visitors to the county. The need for improved emergency communications clearly emerged from the pandemic and last Spring, Indiana's Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) looked to make that happen with community electronic message boards in each of the six hometowns.

Graycraft Signs of Warsaw worked with Marshall County Crossroads to create and install all six community signs which includes LED Electronic Message Centers that can be used to communicate any area and regional emergency messages to the community.
