This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
If you've ever passed through Heber Valley, you're sure to have seen some of the creations of CRC Design, Inc. This Midway company specializes in creating signs and banners for local businesses. From restaurant menu boards at the Dairy Keen to outdoor signs at Rockwater Salon and Spa, CRC has created a vast array of local advertising.
Clay Coleman, owner of CRC Design, Inc., took over the company seven years ago when he purchased the business from Carl Bucanan. Clay set out to provide local businesses with a good package for advertising, including signs, business cards, vehicle graphics and silk-screened clothing.
CRC Design is unique because it does not shy away from any type of sign. Clay tells me he likes to work with clients to help create the signs that they already have envisioned. In order to do this, Clay often has to be very innovative. One example was a sign he made for The Painted Turtle, a California camp for terminally ill children. Clay used old barn wood, brick and stone to create a sign listing names of the camp's contributors.
The tunnel at Soldier Hollow also houses one of CRC's unique creations. The tunnel walls display images of the 2002 Winter Olympics. CRC sandblasted detailed icons of the biathlon, Nordic-combined and cross-country skiing events into the tunnel walls.
Currently, the sandblaster is being used for a much different kind of product. The company now sandblasts names, images and clip art onto cookie sheets and casserole dishes to create attractive dishware that won't get taken home by a confused neighbor at the next potluck dinner.
CRC's latest product is the SignDome, an attractive dome base for signs of all shapes and sizes and an alternative to the traditional A-frame sign display. It's inventive creations like the SignDome that keep CRC Design at the helm of Heber Valley advertising.
