Do you want to buy office signage but do not really know where to start to look and do not
want to buy the wrong business sign and end up making a costly mistake?

Do you want a custom metal or plastic office sign but do not want to pay for the custom
cost of getting office signage that you do not want and forced to settle for something “standard” for your business signs?

Then you have come to the right place!! The Sign Studio offers custom signs—wall signs,
business signs, corporate signs, metal signs, plastic signs and more ..... all at standard prices. We take your custom artwork and come up with several different ways to manufacture your corporate sign to create business signage in different materials giving you several price
options with the same custom image for your business and corporate signage.

After all, the object of all our team here at The Sign Studio is to create metal and acrylic fabricated signage to enhance our clients’ businesses image in the most effective way by supplying them with custom business signage they can be extremely proud of.

What if you do not know exactly what materials you want your custom sign to be? Since making office signs is probably not your area of business expertise, how do you know
if you want to order a business sign out of aluminum, or a business sign of stainless steel, or a brass metal sign, or a bronze metal sign, or a corporate sign made from electroplated metals, or a copper metal sign, or a painted acrylic office sign, or a PVC business sign , or even vinyl signage? Once you contact The Sign Studio for corporate signage, you will be contacted shortly by a sign designer who is trained to talk with customers and offer them the very best of business signs to go in their offices. Your custom office sign designer can talk to you about what exact custom image you want to display in your business signs.

After that, our sign designers will discuss with you our various business sign material
choices from various metals, acrylics, and plastics and explain our manufacturing processes to get you started on the right path for your business signs. Many times, we combine various metals and metal-looking acrylics or plastics to give you the best interior or exterior metal signage. Then, our quote department will give you bids for your business signs and office signs
using some options that best fits your company’s corporate signage needs. After you receive your business sign quote, you and our design staff can again discuss the options for metal signs or acrylic signs to make sure that you are getting exactly what you want for your custom office signage.

What methods of manufacturing do we use to fabricate our various types of signage?

At The SignStudio, the leader in corporate business signs and office signs, we blend
modern technology and hand craftsmanship to create custom corporate signage, office signage, ADA signs, Donor Wall signage, Memorial Walls and Honor Wall signs, plus architectural signs for interior signage and exterior signage for every industry.

Even though we use the highest state-of-the art modern equipment to manufacture our metal
signs and acrylic office signs and corporate signage such as computerized routers, lasers, water jet and plotters, it is still the creativity and finest craftsmanship from our dedicated Sign Studio team that provides the highest quality office and business signage available. Every person at The Sign Studio - from the designers and sales team to the office staff and shop personal is committed to producing the highest quality business signs and office signage possible for our customers’ unmistakable custom signs without the custom cost.

What materials do we use to manufacture our custom business signs?

At The Sign Studio you will find that whatever your office sign needs, whatever your
corporate sign budget, we are confident that you will receive the highest quality metal and acrylic signage product possible.

1.For our metal signs, The Sign Studio uses SOLID METALS to make our aluminum signs, our bronze signs, copper signs, stainless steel signs, and corten (rusted) steel signs. These solid metals can be finished for our interior business metal signs and exterior business signs using special tools for brushing and applying special custom finishes such as swirling, or rusting. Solid aluminum custom lettering and custom metal logos are finished with a clear coating which will last years or painted with our customer’s custom pms enamel paints, powder coated, or electroplated. An additional custom finish is to have your custom lettering/logo metal sign
anodized for a long-lasting exterior sign impervious to the elements. All of our metal letter/logo signs are guaranteed for life.

2.Fabricated or soldered custom metal signs are used when again, a high end look is required
to represent a customer’s highest image for their metal signage ---- without the high cost you may think. For making corporate business signs, using this method, thin sheets of metal are cut from a choice of beautifully finished metals for Brass signage, Stainless Steel signage, Bronze signs , and Copper signs. After the custom or standard image is cut from the thin metal, strips of the same metal are soldered or welded to the faces creating a thick, hollow letter for beautiful metal signs with seams virtually impossible to detect. Or sometime, we like to make a metal sign with a satin face but polished returns (or edges). If the metal sign is hung in the correct lighting with overhead beams shining down on the metal signage, a reflection or “glow” is cast upon the wall creating an aura of superiority. In addition to sometimes being more
cost effective than the Solid Metals (because less over-all metal is used in the creation of these corporate business signs), we are able to make custom lettering/logos ranging in depth from 1/4" up to 4". Because these custom metal signs are hollow, they are lighter weight than the solid metals. This innovative technology enables every company from a 1 or 2 man staff up to
large corporations able to afford a beautiful metal sign for their company’s image.

3.The Sign Studio also uses these same metals in very thin sheeting which we laminate to
various backers for our "Faux Metal" look business signs. This are used to give the look and feel of metal signage without the cost or weight. You can choose from a nearly endless array of custom finished thin metal laminate which we glue to backers for thickness.

The backers we use for our “Faux Metal” custom metal signs are: 1.ACRYLIC BACKERS which are laminated to the real metal face and can be painted with metallic paints to match the custom lettering/logo face’s real metal face to make our metal signs. OR, to make our metal signs, the acrylic can be left black which helps add a look of depth to the custom metal signage. The depths of the acrylics generally range from 1/8" to 1".

Again, the nearly endless custom finished thin metal laminates can be applied to a PVC
BACKER which is similar to acrylic but has a slightly more porous make-up. Therefore,
we generally leave it black which again, adds depth to the look especially on a white or very light wall.

An alternative for painted solid metal is ACRYLIC or PVC. With many years in
the custom sign business and with today’s economy we understand the need for
price options for your company business signs—without sacrificing quality. For
painted office signs, for both interior and exterior signage, we often suggest
the use of solid PVC or ACRYLIC.

Our paints are specifically designed to be used with these products to manufacture
creative business signs and will furnish many years of use without peeling,
fading, or discoloring to the office signs--OR-for your custom corporate signs
you can be really creative and turn the clear acrylic custom sign pieces over
and have only the backs and sides painted---this leaves a high-tech extremely
glossy face to your acrylic office logo.

No matter what type of metal signage, acrylic signage, or plastic signage, we guarantee them
for lifetime.
