screen printing close [x]  
screen printing Also referred to as silk screening, screen printing is the technique of applying an image to a printed surface by ink squeegeed through a stenciled screen stretched over a frame.  The stenciled screen is treated with a light-sensitive emulsion, then film positives are put in contact with the screen and exposed to light.  The light hardens the emulsion not covered by the film, leaving a soft area on the screen for the squeegee to force ink through in the form of the desired image.  Each separate color requires its own screen.

Screen printing allows printing on virtually any substrate of any shape.

sign painting close [x]  
sign painting Hand painted signs, (in particular, hand painted lettering), as opposed to computer generated 4-color vinyl images applied to sign faces.  Each hand painted sign is a unique, original work of art.

Traditional sign painting may be required for surfaces on to which vinyl film cannot be adhered, such as concrete rendered and porous surfaces, canvas shop canopies, murals, and areas that must withstand harsh atmospheric conditions, but where the higher cost of an alternative is deemed prohibitive.  Hand painted signs also have the advantage of being able to be repainted as necessary.

sign manufacturing close [x]  
Sign manufacturers create custom signs.

Local, retail sign manufacturers sell signage directly to the end user.

National retail sign manufacturers also sell signage directly to the end user. National retail sign manufacturers generally use defined distribution channels, and sell signs that do not require a professional sign installer.

Wholesale sign manufacturers sell signage to local retail sign companies through defined channels. Signage may require the services of a professional sign installer (usually the local sign company ordering the sign).

National sign manufacturers, or "National Account Providers," are large retail companies that specialize in corporate architectural and brand identity signage. They provide both manufacturing and project management for sign and graphics solutions to large buyers at the national level.

Depending on the application, several other services may be required to complete a sign project. These services may include sign surveys, sign permitting, sign manufacturing, and sign installation. Signs commonly require service, repair, and maintenance as well.

sign installation close [x]  
Sign installers hang or place signs.

Which sign company to use to install your signs often depends on the type of sign that is to be installed. Special equipment may be required to install your sign, such as a crane, bucket, or other aerial truck.

Many sign companies are called "full service sign companies", that is, they offer sign surveys, permitting, manufacturing, installation, service and repair. There are also sign companies that exclusively offer sign installation. Most of these install companies also offer sign surveys, permitting, and, as a follow up, sign service and repair.

Sign installers should be licensed according to their local or state jurisdictions, and typically offer a warranty on the work they have performed.

You should also have your project surveyed by a professional sign installer. Make sure to check with your local ordinances and get all the necessary sign permits before you start the work.
