New Episcopal Church Welcomes You signs, graphic guidelines and affordable websites available

Redesigned “The Episcopal Church Welcomes You” signs, in bold colors with easy-to-read type, are available for purchase in both English and Spanish.
The eye-catching signs feature the church’s colors – blue and red on white – with the treasured Episcopal Church shield.
“The new signs are simpler, bolder, a little larger and less likely to rust,” said Anne Rudig, Director of Communication.  “The tilted shield has been retired. The shield is completely visible. There is definite curb appeal in the updated look."
The Episcopal Church has partnered with Episcopal Marketplace in Atlanta, GA, to offer the church signs. “Episcopal Marketplace has a long history of offering quality Episcopal products,” Rudig noted. "We are really pleased to be partnering with them."
Available for dioceses, churches, organizations and Episcopal institutions at no fee are the new graphic guidelines, outlining such details as fonts, color palette, use of the shield, etc.
“These guidelines were prepared so that every Episcopal church or group can make use of the updated look,” Rudig continued.
