How fast is your
average job being completed)?
The turnaround time
for your average sign varies based on your specific
needs. We keep all the major materials in stock because
we understand our clients needs are sometimes more
urgent and we need to have everything in it's place an
ready to go. That's how we're able to crank out a job
with a very short notice. We also try to only work with
suppliers that are close and/or deliver the same or at
least next day, so We can get the rush jobs done if we
need to. Please remember though, electrical signs and
signage requiring permits may require a longer

Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator, etc. If we're "cutting"
the lettering or logo out, we will be needing a Vector
File, otherwise we can digitize (or Vectorize) the

is acceptable for artwork submitted?
If sending your
artwork in "real size", please send your work 150DPI. We
can also work with a one-inch-to-one-foot ratio
(Example: if the art is to be 6 feet long and 4 feet
tall, the submit artwork should be 6 inches long and 4
inches tall) at 300 DPI.
What is DPI?
DPI is the standard
of measurement for the resolution of images that
describes the number of dots per inch (DPI) that are
used to create an image. The higher the DPI, the higher
the resolution which translates to better quality of
your final product.
How long will my
We have many levels
of material to choose from. We use some of the best
materials in the industry 3M, Orcal, Avery, Gator Foam, Orajet,
Gemini, etc. If you only need a quick sign that will be
taken down after a few weeks or months, we can make your
signs in a less expensive material. If you need it to
last a few years, we will make them with a better grade
of material to withstand the elements for the time
period you need it to last. If you need it to last 5-7
years or longer, we will go with some of the best
material available on the market today and you will be
able to enjoy your signage for years and years to come.
Can I approve
the sign before it's made?
we begin production, we require your approval of the
artwork, colors, spelling, and layout. Once you are
satisfied, we begin producing your sign. This way, we're
both clear on what we're producing.
What is the
difference between vector and bitmap images and which is
A vector image is
one of the two major graphic types (the other being
bitmap) made up of many individual objects. vector
graphics are resolution independent because they can be
output to the highest quality at any scale. A bitmap (or
raster) image is comprised of pixels in a grip. Bitmap
images cannot be resized without losing image quality.
Common bitmap-based formats are JPEG, JPG, GIF, TIFF,
PNG, PICT and BMP. Vector image is the preferred format
for submitting artwork however since it is not a format
common tom non- designers, bitmap images at the correct
resolution (see above) can be substituted.
