Never ordered a sign before? You may find ths extremely helpful. Things to consider before you start your sign project   a family business that promises the personal touch!

For over thirty years our family and staff have been creating well designed, expertly made signs of all kinds, using materials that are appropriate for each individual sign project. Driven by one constant that comes above all other imperatives.

To Make You Our Customer, look Great

Many subconscious assumptions are made in the first few seconds when your sign is viewed for the first time. And whether it's right or wrong, people do judge books by their covers.

Think about it for a moment, how many signs do you actually read? If you were to read every sign as you drove down the road you would never get over 10MPH and yet somehow you have a knowledge of most of them.

It is our job to grab the attention of the viewers and convince them that whatever your perception and image of your home, business or organization is; we portray it in such a way that the viewer is left in no doubt that this is the place they want.

Choice of font:

The choice of font can be important.

Each of these signs projects a different image, think about the feeling you get when you look at each sign.

You don't always look at signs like this and study them, it's more that your subconscious absorbs any content that grabs its attention.

Other very important visual clues are taken from materials, shapes and colors. 


Some of the factors that govern letter size are:

  • The distance from which the sign will be viewed.
  • At what speed is the viewer travelling.
  • What are the colors and contrast ratios in the design
  • Are the letters 3 dimensional? Extra shadows can enhance some signs while making others harder to read. This is also affected by the depth of the letters.

Featured Sign of the Month

Uwharrie Point Country Club Main Entrance

This PVC Monument Sign is approx 8ft high by 14ft. wide and was originally made from Redwood. After approx 25 years it had rotted. The board of the residents association were very keen to keep the original appearance exactly the same as the original but they wanted it to be from a material that wouldn't rot.  We had access to  the original architects drawings, so we set about converting the plans into a computer file engineered to be made from PVC and aluminum but to look exactly like the original. Every piece of coving and molding was made in house, and then assembled into three pieces which were transported to the site where it was assembled. The whole monument sign was painted with six coats of a high quality Benjamin Moore latex paint ( it lasts longer on PVC than paints costing over $100 .00/gall more. Then apart from the center panel all of the monument was painted once more by brush and as it was drying the brushes were dragged carefully along the length of each section creating a wood grain effect; thus removing any appearance of the sign looking plastic.
