Franklin Business Helps Prepare Super Bowl Piano

Posted: Updated:

FRANKLIN, Tenn. - A relatively unknown Franklin sign shop got a lot of exposure this weekend during the pregame show of the Super Bowl.  

12 Point Signworks -- which usually creates signs and vinyl wraps to advertise on vehicles -- was in charge of preparing the piano that Grammy award-winner Alicia Keys played the national anthem on. 

Workers at the shop wrapped the entire grand piano in silver-colored vinyl.

Yamaha, who provided the piano, asked 12 Point Signworks if they were up to the task.

Workers said the project was a relatively last minute decision -- taking two days to complete.

Even though the company's work was seen by millions of football fans, only a few people will ever know the story behind it.

"I don't necessarily want to be famous, I just like doing the work," said Rich Novia, Jr. who works at 12 Point Signworks. "My craft speaks for itself."

Usually the folks at 12 Point Signworks assemble projects in their own shop in Franklin, but because this was such a high profile assignment, they had to do their work on the piano in a separate location, so people wouldn't know what they were working on.
