Clean, functioning signs and lighting can increase customer traffic and instill a sense of security around your business. After all, the first impression many customers may have about your business is your sign.

Our trained and licensed technicians arrive on-site with a fully equipped vehicle to get the job done. They will diagnose any problems quickly and deliver fast, accurate service to get your sign back in working condition. All of our technicians are provided with mobile communication, so that they can effectively communicate with our main office and you to ensure that we make the repairs needed as quickly as possible.

In addition to general repair services we also offer emergency repair, sign cleaning and scheduled maintenance.

We start by consulting with you regarding your project. Email, phone or in-person. We are open and ready to schedule a meeting or chat on the phone. We are here to best suit your time and needs.

Once we have established your needs we research best possible options and put together a quote based on your project.

After quote approval we have you provide print-ready files or we create a design and share a proof for your approval prior to print or fabrication – we also collaborate or advise you on modifications to the design if necessary.

Upon final design or proof approval we begin to produce your project.

Finally we provide you with a complete project and follow-up with you to ensure everything looks great.

We understand the importance that a site survey can play in any sign project. Knowing, ahead of time, what is involved in getting your sign installed properly, can be the difference between a successful project and a nightmare.

 

The acquisition of the necessary sign permits can be some of the most challenging aspects of a sign project and requires thorough preparation, attention to detail and a working knowledge of the sign codes involved. Our company is licensed and bonded in any municipality we work in.

 

Our project managers oversee the complexities of everything from sign surveys, recommendations, permits, sign acquisition and installation. This means you have the time to focus on growing your business. As part of our sign project management services we offer personal signage consultation.

Our committed staff promises customer satisfaction from assisting on variances, permits and local codes to coordinating the installation of multi-location projects. We provide personal consultation for your individual project to ensure your every need is accommodated.

Trust us as your one-stop shop for your site survey and permitting needs.

1. Keep it visible and legible.

Remember that people of all ages are reading while looking through a windshield, in traffic, day and night. They must be able to see and read your client’s sign quickly and easily. Sans serif fonts are helpful for fast legibility.

2. Save the details for the sale. 

Don’t attempt to sell with information on the sign. Tell your client to save that information until the customer has set foot in the business.

3. Keep it simple. 

Crowding the sign with too many words or lines of text makes it impossible to read from a distance. Three to five words are optimal for quick readability. Also, make sure the letter kerning is not too tight.

4. Grab attention. 

There should be something about the sign that will reach out and command attention. Ideally, the first item should be a large pictorial graphic or your customer’s company logo, but it can also be large dominating text. Strong color contrast can help as well.

5. Appeal to impulse buyers. 

Many clients mistakenly think of a sign as merely a device that identifies the business. What they fail to realize is that 55% of all retail sales are a result of impulse purchases. This makes it imperative that the sign quickly communicates what the business sells.

6. Keep it near the viewer. 

Put the sign as close to the street as is permitted.

7. Make sure your sign is conspicuous.

Your client’s message competes in a complex environment. A passerby must be able to differentiate your sign from its surrounding environment. A strong contrast to the building facade (and an easily legible font) is helpful.

8. Avoid obstructions.

Make certain the sign can be viewed without obstruction from any source. Drive past your client’s business from all directions to help determine the most visible sign location(s).

9. Make it memorable. 

Your sign should make your client’s products or services, and location, easy to remember. “Just look for the big red sign near the intersection of Alameda and Bennington.”

10. Consider colors carefully.

Too many colors take away from the quick readability of the sign. Again, stay simple. Make sure colors are contrasting. Yellow on white is not very readable, whereas black on white is easily readable.

11. Consistent visual image.

Ideally, the design and the colors of your client’s building should reinforce the design and colors of your sign (or vice versa). Color is probably the easiest and most cost-effective device for this coordination of design for business identification.

THE GOAL OF YOUR SIGNAGE

Start your journey by identifying what specific thing you want your sign to do. Do you want it to help raise brand awareness? Increase sales? Help people find their way? Make the area safer or more secure? Help build community? Add fun flair to the space?
Keep it concise and relevant to your specific goal. For example, if your main goal is to increase call volume, make sure the phone number is front and center and clearly visible.

Where will your sign go? Will it be indoors or outdoors? And, how big will it need to be to be seen by those passing by? Determining letter height will help determine what type of sign you should get and what information can be included on your sign.
