To produce your job in the most cost-effective manner, always provide vector files of your art, such as CDR, AI or EPS files. This way, you’ll avoid art setup fees. Also include font files to ensure a smooth setup process. We can work from JPG, TIFF and PDF files, but they may not produce the same quality as other file types. If this is your only option, ask us about it and we’ll help you find the best solution.

What is a proof and why is it important for every job?

A proof is a final examination given to you before we physically produce your project.  It allows you to review the layout, design, spelling, colors and overall look of your sign/ graphics either digitally or in print.  Any requested changes are made and once again sent for your approval before transitioning into production  Providing proofs for every project is just another step we take towards “Creating Sign Solutions” and providing you peace of mind knowing our team handled every detail exactly how you want it.

Why do I need to look at a proof if I’ve already given you everything I need to have done?

Simply put, humans make mistakes. By reviewing your proof, you can ensure that our team handled every detail exactly how you want it. Misunderstandings and crossed signals happen at every business. This is our way of saving the time and money that mistakes can cost.

Do I still need to approve a proof if I bring my work in on a disk?

It seems unnecessary, right? But a proof is still useful, even when you submit files on a disk. Programs, files and output devices have flaws and create errors, just like humans. Reviewing a final proof ensures your job traveled across formats accurately.

What’s the difference between a partial vehicle wrap, a full vehicle wrap, and lettering?

A full vehicle wrap covers every area of exposed paint on the vehicle, while a partial wrap only covers sections like a side or tailgate.  Vehicle lettering is words or numbers cut out and applied to the windows or body of your vehicle.

How do I go about getting an estimate from you?

The easiest way to request an estimate is through our Request an Estimate tool. Simply complete that form, and we’ll get back to you soon. Otherwise, you can always give us a call or stop in, and we’d be glad to talk about your project and provide an estimate.

Do you offer a quantity discount?

Most jobs do offer a quantity discount. Since setup is the most time-intensive part of any job (and thus expensive), it is easier to run multiple versions of any sign. Plus, materials get cheaper in larger quantities.

How long does it take for you to create my sign?

In sign making, every job is unique. Therefore, every timeline is different.  Basic jobs like banners or posters can be done in less than a week, and more complicated jobs can take up to six weeks.  We go to great lengths to meet your timeline however there are factors out of our control such as weather; city/county/historical permitting process to name a few.

How do I care for my banner so it lasts and continues to look good?

Hanging your banner is the easiest way to prolong the life of your sign. Grommets are spaced around the outside edge to distribute weight evenly. When you hang your banner, make sure to weave your rope or string in and out of the grommets, similar to sewing. By doing this, no one area is bearing all the weight and wind.  After you’re done displaying the banner, give it a quick cleansing with soap and water,  roll up for storage with the lettering and print facing out.  Never fold your banner as this will cause creases and could lead to peeling.
