What are the steps in getting a sign? Point A to Z?

Step 1 – If your company is renting space, your first step is to review your Lease Agreement or check with your Landlord as to the sign requirements that are permitted on the building. You can usually get an idea of what the permitted signs are in the building by looking at the other businesses signs.

Step 2 – Schedule a free survey with us. We will take the necessary measurements and advise you of what the possibilities are.

Step 3 – Design phase, we will work with you on the look you desire, whether you already have an idea or need our help in creating the perfect sign to attract customers.

Step 4 – A proof will be provided to you for your final approval.

Step 5 – Once we have received your approval, we will bring the Sign Agreement to you for signature and collect the 50% deposit, unless you are financing.

Step 6 – We will obtain the Permit from the appropriate city or county.

Step 7 – Once the Permit has been approved, your sign will go into production, unless you are financing.

Step 8 – We will contact you to schedule installation. You are required to be present to ensure that we have access to necessary panels, etc and to provide payment on the remaining 50%.

Step 9 – Like us on Facebook and add us to LinkedIn if your sign looks as awesome as your new business.

+ Note: We are glad to match paint colors on buildings, but for the best results, we ask that you obtain the color code for the paint on the building from the Landlord.

What type of Lighting is available for signs and which is best?

Signs frequently use lighting as a means of conveying their information or as a way to increase visibility. But which type of lighting is best and why?

The most advanced, Environmentally friendly and cost-effective lighting is Light-emitting diode (LED) technology and with a variety of brightness and color options. Light-emitting diode is an electronic component that emits light when connected to direct current. It works on electroluminescent principle and can emit light in visible specter as well as in infrared and ultraviolet. They have characteristically low energy consumption, small size, longer lifetime and faster switching than incandescent lamps and because of that, they have a wide palette of applicability. This technology, first used primarily at sporting events, later appeared at businesses, churches, schools, and government buildings. Today, LED technology is also used in light panels to illuminate advertising graphics in public places including malls, subways, and airports.

LED lighting is used as a replacement for incandescent and neon lights, as they emit more light per watt than incandescent lamps, they are much smaller, their on/off time is much shorter than of the other types of electric light sources (they are quick), their lifetime is much longer and they are much more difficult to damage. LED lighting is finding its place in the commercial signage industry, is environmental friendly and is here to stay.

Other lighting available

Fluorescent – Need description. This type of lighting is initially less expensive then LED lighting, but it doesn’t make it up in the end and cannot provide the same illuminating effect as LED.

Neon introduced in 1910 at the Paris Motor Show, are produced by the craft of bending glass tubing into shapes. A worker skilled in this craft is known as a glass bender, neon or tube bender. As Neon is becoming less popular due to the dangerous high voltage required to operate, potential fire hazard, costs of electrical usage and the high costs of the Neon itself, new LED technology has provided a neon substitute which is the closest option currently available. In no way does this advanced technology come close to our beloved Neon, but the option is available.
