making strike hold insignia 21a classic signs nc320x240This is our brand new site, welcome. if you visited here recently it will look very different but don't worry it's basically the same just more specific with detailed pages to give you ideas and help with your current sign project.

Our old site had been hacked and badly damaged, this new site may not have everything working perfectly but be assured we are working on it as fast as possible. If you find anything not working or incorrect please let us know. 

Thank you,  The SignBlasters Team

We specialize in unusual and "outside the box" signs (see some of our Unusual Projects). We reinvent the wheel every day; if you have an idea, run it by us, I'm sure we can help. And if you want a regular dimensional sign we can definitely help with that as well.

old dominion boat club routed hdu multi level club sign 3crop with paddles classic signs nc320x240Signblasters.com.....   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.

Consider how many signs you actually read when you are driving? 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 subconscious and convince it 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 absorbes any content that grabs it's attention

.

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

There are over 55,000 fonts in the English language. About 95% of them are useless for signage, that leaves a few thousand; many of those do not come with a full character set. But even when you get down to that many, some words look great in one font but other words in the same letter style can look awful.  Trust your professional sign designer to help you to choose the right font for your sign.

 

Some of the factors that govern letter size are:

  • How far away the sign will be viewed from.
  • 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.

There are dozens of other things to be taken into account when designing a sign and in thirty years we have found that not all architects and graphic artists are very well trained in sign design. That does not say that they are not good at their job, far from it, but just because it looks good on a printed piece of paper when held under your nose and it has your undivided attention will it be even the tiniest bit noticeable at 60 mph. Then add in other distractions and you don't even read signs when you're driving do you? Just imagine .. if you consciously read every sign you pass, you would never get above 10 miles per hour.

So how come you do know what many of those signs say? It's your subconscious. Our job is to make your subconscious go "ooh, what was that?" If we do that then its a good sign. However, we strive to make your subconscious go "WOW! hey conscious mind - get a look at that!"

If we do that then we have a great sign! And that's what we try to do every day.

When you "mouse over" an item it may expand giving you sub categories  etc. That will lead you to what you are looking for.

USE OF SIGN

If you are not sure of the different materials used in sign making these days or if you are not sure of the kind of sign you need try our "Signs Used For" on the top menu. In here we have listed many of the uses for signage so you can see what other organizations similar to yours have done

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK

If that doesn't work try typing your type of sign into our search box, and if you still haven't found what you want, call us on 1 800 948 4307. Several types of signs are known by different names in differing parts of the country.  We probably have what you are searching for, but just by another name.
