Questions & Answers
My logo color is _____, can you match that color?
If we are painting your letters, then yes, if we are digitally printing something or choosing translucent substrates, then maybe. We can certainly discuss what options we have to make your sign look the way you want it to look.
What substrates are available to make my dimensional letters out of?
There are countless options, but some of the more popular ones are wood, acrylic, aluminum, and high density urethane. Many times you can choose a less expensive substrate and have a laminate face to achieve a different look. An example of this would be using a thick acrylic letter with a brushed aluminum laminate face to give you the dimension of a thick aluminum letter without having to pay for a thick aluminum sheet of material to cut your letters out of. Call us today and we can discuss options for your business.
Should I choose externally lit dimensional letters or internally illuminated channel letters?
This is a question that we get a lot. At the end of the day, the choice is yours, but we suggest you make it based on your budget and the look you are trying to portray for your company. Some companies are looking for a more retro look to provide a more trendy feel. Other companies want the brightest, most visible letters possible (illuminated channel letters). Sometimes the property owner has a specific sign plan that you’ll have to conform to. Whatever the case is, we can come up with the best solution to help your business get noticed.
