What will my sign be made out of?
There are many substrate options for your signs depending on the
application. There are so many materials and more that are being developed
all the time. We’ll come up with the best option for you. Some of the more
. Coroplast – this is a corrugated plastic and is most commonly used
for yard signs and temporary signage
. Banners – think all banners are the same? Think again. There are
different weights, surfaces, and colors; these also make great temporary
. Alumalite/DiBond – Site signs and permanent building signs are
typically manufactured on these materials which are made up of aluminum
composite panels with a high density, corrugated polyallomer (CPA) core that

How long does it take to make my sign?
Most typical signs can be made in 1 to 2 days from the time that the artwork is approved. Some large orders and specialty items may take a week to several weeks to produce. Sandblasted signs typically take 3 weeks to complete. Full vehicle wraps usually require 5-7 days to complete depending on the size of the vehicle.
How long will my sign last?
This depends on the type of sign and it’s purpose. Most temporary signs will last anywhere from 3-6 months outside, and up to a year inside. A properly constructed permanent sign should last 10-30 years depending on the material chosen, and proper maintenance.
What is the difference between vector and raster artwork?
Raster Files are made up of tiny squares called pixels. These are your full color artwork files. The quality of a raster file is determined by DPI (dots per inch). The lowest quality that we will print from is 300 DPI.
Vector Files on the other hand, are made up of the outlines of objects within the file using points. A vector file can be enlarged and changed easily without losing any quality in the image.
What file formats do you accept?
Our preferred vector file formats are .AI or .EPS. For raster artwork generally a .JPG, .TIF, or Photoshop works just fine. We can convert raster files over to vector files as well, however this depends on the quality of the original artwork.
We lease our company vehicles, can we still get them wrapped?
Absolutely! There are several types of vehicle wrap material, one of which is removable for up to 4 years after being installed.
