What is more important, the Sign or the Design ?

During your busy day, how many of the signs you pass when you are driving, do you actually take note of?
Not many, otherwise you'd never get anywhere, so just having a sign isn't enough, your sign should make people take notice, even on a subconscious level.

That's why you should use a sign company that can create a statement that gets attention and you have found it! When someone passes one of our signs; (not actively paying attention to it) if their subconscious registers that sign then we did our job.
When their sub & conscious minds shout WOW! Then we did our job superbly and that's what we strive to do every day. However there is much more to it than designing a pretty sign. A work of art that is stunning in all it's beauty when you stand in front of it, is just a grey bob when driven past at 40MPH.

Distance and speed of the viewer are critical.

C C L (sign design 101) Clarity; Contrast; Legibility. If you don't have those, well....

There are over 40,000 fonts in the English speaking language : The vast majority of them are useless for signage.

Is your business a formal profession, or a relaxed country store? What works for one may not work for the other.

Too many different fonts and too many colors are not only confusing but expensive to reproduce as well,

The first 8 vehicle wraps you ever saw, you studied didn't you? I bet these days you don't even register the main name on them. Some companies are paying thousands of dollars for something that will last about 4-5 years and most folks will never give it the time of day. Fashions are great in the short term but good old CCL will always win the day.

Classic Signs has been endeavoring to provide well designed, well made signs, that get the viewers attention, for over thirty years. Small enough to produce simple PVC hanging signs for a few dollars, large enough to produce 168 dimensional signs many of them complex, for a resort in the Caribbean. From first phone call to delivery at the customers logistics center in Miami in less than three weeks.

We are a family company that has retained many of its customers for as long as we have been in business and we focus on quality of materials and design. It doesn't matter if your sign lasts a hundred years if no one looks at it. Over 90% of our products are created and manufactured in house. We ship anywhere, although most of our signs stay within the 48 states.

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.
