Sign Artist turned the Great Northern logo into an acrylic dimensional letter sign. We also created a new cabinet sign, showcasing the logo in a different way.

Cut vinyl window graphics are multi-functional signs that can display your brand, give directions, and impart information like hours and phone numbers.
Another great thing about window cut vinyl is that it can be applied on any window or glass door, interior and exterior. Durable, easily changeable, and quick to install, cut vinyl window graphics are the choice for many savvy business owners.
The options for colors, fonts, and images are endless! You can have printed vinyl in your personal brand colors, or sleek white or black. Sign Artist Inc. is able to design, produce, and install any custom window graphic you could want.
Dimensional letters and logos from Sign Artist are highly customizable and come in numerous materials, colors and finishes. We can match your company colors or give your logo a sleek, new look with brushed metal faces.

Frosted window decals, like the ones made for UIC by the Sign Artist team, add character to your workspace. Elegant and subtle, frosted vinyl is a convincing substitute for real frosted and etched glass. This option both looks great and is cost effective, perfect for those seeking economy and style!
So many fonts, and so many unique choices! A business owner in the process of choosing a new sign may find themselves overwhelmed with available options. Sign Artist wants to share some tips on how to chose typefaces that are appealing, but also legible.
Fonts that work well in print may not always lead to readability on a large scale. Very thin fonts, or fonts with large stylized flourishes, will be difficult for many people to read.
Some of the most stylized fonts available on the internet are from places like 1001fonts.com. Many of these free fonts are so textured or complicated that they do not lend themselves easily to legibility. To create a professional sign for your business, Sign Artist advises owners to proceed with caution when choosing free fonts.
Sign Artist’s font advice? Stick with the classics. A font like Century Gothic or Garamond can easily be just as exciting if stylized with color and texture.
After all, the most fun type of sign is the sign that can be read by everybody!
We’ve all been there: visiting an unfamiliar office park for the first time, desperately looking for some clue of where we are. The entrance signs are too small, or placed out of view, and we waste precious minutes attempting to find our final destination. This is what Sign Artist Inc. wants to help clients with: effective wayfinding signage.
Making your business accessible to everyone is also a by-product of effective wayfinding design. Large, easy-to-read fonts, and ADA compliance where applicable all work together to assist those of your customers who need them.
No matter how artistic and attractive a wayfinding sign is, it is not a good design if it is illegible, or unnecessarily complicated. The old Graphic Design rule stands: the most beautiful designs combine form and function. That means, they should be just as practical as they are pleasing to the eye.
First, we made sure the injured “T” got where it needed to go safely…
Then we made a replica “T”…
And up it went! The Sign Artist team was exited to help Roosevelt University repair its sign and illuminate downtown Chicago better than ever!
Sign Artist Inc. was excited to help River East Public Library design and build a vivid monument sign! This LED-lighted cabinet sign is not only bright and colorful during the day, it illuminates the night as well. The staff at Sign Artist are avid readers, so we were eager to assist a public library in creating a new and vibrant look!
This week, the Sign Artist team customized the entrance to Grant Consulting Group’s Chicago office with precision cut lettering and 3M frosted privacy film. The graphics provide brand identity. Privacy film is a great choice for buildings with interior windows because it looks like etched glass. Different degrees of frosted glass are available. It’s a professional look for visitors, and provides privacy and light to employees.
The University of Illinois at Chicago made the news this week. UIC ranks highly as a great value for quality education. The city location of the growing campus is an important draw and a contributor to the institution’s 5% annual growth. #Sign Artist welcomes the opportunity to participate in the university’s expansion. Dimensional wall #signs communicate the quality education for which the university is renowned. Let us promote your organization’s proud reputation! Reception area signage projects the confidence and excellence that makes your work stand out. Sign Artist will #communicate this to your important visitors! signartistusa.com

United Displaycraft is a subsidiary of parent company Great Northern Instore (GNI). GNI is an expert at designing and building custom retail displays. This includes everything from Gatorade to Bridgestone tires. Each item we see in a store has a carefully engineered display to provide maximum visibility and key information about the product. Great Northern subsidiaries include those specializing in metal fabrication, wood crafting and high resolution printing. When it was time to update the signage, Great Northern Instore engaged Sign Artist Inc. to transform their branding into a highly visible set of signs along the busy thoroughfare north of O’Hare International Airport. Carefully matched to the corporation’s color standard, the bright, highly weather resistant acrylic panels are mounted onto the building using metal studs tightly lodged into the facade with silicone adhesive. The sign will withstand the harsh northern winters and blazing summer heat.
