Uneven surfaces? No worries! Sign Artist can work with you to find the perfect custom signsolutions. This raw brick facade is at Elmhurst Hospital in Elmhurst, Illinois. It proved a little challenging on sign install day, but the results were stunning. Elmhurst University has a state of the art Simulation Center at the Hospital, where its medical students train. Sign Artist has fabricated and installed multiple signs at this location, including:
ADA name plates
Backlit monument sign with push-through panel
Nursing mission statement wall sign on acrylic.
This lobby sign above, over rugged brick, is 5 ft W X 1.5 ft H, made of 3-dimensional cast aluminum letters. Meticulous measuring, precision drilling and positioning, are always needed to obtain the perfect install. A little added finesse was required for this rugged wall, since every brick juts out at a different depth. The striking bronze-colored letters proved to be a perfect contrast to the neutral earth tones of the bricks.
Sign Artist is glad to help brand the Elmhurst University Simulation Center, which provides medical students with the hands-on training they need, to be stellar health care professionals in future.

Sign Artist installed this vivid awning at the new 3N’s Oriental Groceries, Foods & Markets Store in Broadview, Illinois. The printed canvas signage makes the business a standout along busy Roosevelt Road. The store celebrates its Grand Opening this Saturday, March 6, 2021! It officially opens to the public at noon, so go check out this great groceries/carry out food destination at 1422 West Roosevelt Road in Broadview!
To install the 25-foot-wide awning, Sign Artist designed a custom carrier. Our crew defied the weather, bringing a bucket truck and braving 1.5-foot-high snowdrifts to remove the old awning, with its faded canvas. After Sign Artist cut the old canvas from the steel frame, we mounted the frame on our truck, and carried it away, to be covered in bright, printed canvas. A fresh-looking storefront makes any shop pop. 3N’s Oriental Groceries will be an appealing destination for all who love oriental cuisine. The awning is a great aid for directing customers to the shop, and for attracting new clients.
With Spring coming, it’s time to put on a bright face! Whether it’s an awning, wayfinding, exterior or lobby sign, give Ed a call: 630-594-4185.

The result is a contemporary take on restaurant signage, and an unforgettable branding. With its economy of lines, this 3-D sign shows that simplicity can be ultra-creative, eye-catching and chic.
Sign Artist was happy to see Pete, restauranteur and owner of eggology, post his enthusiasm on Instagram, with the comment, “Illuminated sign turned out better than we imagined!” His replies featured a thumbs up and “so cool!!!!” Another post on Pete’s Instagram reads: “Create a vision that makes you wanna jump out of bed in the morning.” Sign Artist is happy in the part we played in adding to the visuals of Pete’s creative and tasty vision! We wish eggology much success!

Sign Artist just installed this lobby sign at Securint Financial Services, Inc, at busy Ellston and Pulaski, in Chicago. Mounted directly on the wall, this acrylic, matte black sign announces the business brand with impactful, 3-D custom-fabricated letters and logo.
A great lobby sign impresses clients from the moment they walk into your business. With new businesses starting, and established ones opening doors once again, it’s time to review your signage needs. Sign Artist is covering multiple projects for Securint, ordering business cards, and returning to the Chicago office to install privacy film. With its corner location, Securint’s windows are flooded by sunshine and the interested gazes of passersby. A frosted adhesive film that Sign Artist will install on the building’s bank of ground-floor windows, will not only temper the sun’s glare, it will provide a little privacy for workers within. Installing the film mid-line in the window, with uncovered strips above and below, will allow workers to view the great outdoors. It will also give potential clients just enough of a glimpse inside, to pique their interest, and attract a possible walk-in visitor.

All of us at Sign Artist play a Where’s Waldo? game of sorts. We spot problematic signs wherever we go! We applaud this dry cleaner in Chicagoland for posting positively and taking the “high road.” He obviously takes a lot of pride in his signs, because the message changes often.
However, we also wonder if the sturdy Spring winds have whisked a couple letters to another county!
Stringing letters manually to a gigantic sign board is one way of getting a message across, and we’ve happily provided changeable letter signs to area clients. But a more modern approach, and one that can be easily programmed with the touch of a finger on a screen, is LED lighting.
LEDsigns give an updated look, and have exterior and interior uses galore, from way finding, directory and even sports arena signage, to menu and score boards. and open/closed signs. Wifi controller connections allows the owner of the sign to make changes to content as needs dictate.
These electronic message centers provide high visibility to your business!
Let us know if you’d like to update your look, make lettering legible and secure, and simplify maintenance, with a programmableLED sign. We’d be happy to give you a quote for your specific need and application.
People heading up any enterprise, often pour hours into strategic plans, employee and client interactions, but sometimes miss the obvious — planning for a stunning sign that will turn heads and generate buzz and business. Whether you’re shopping for a new dentist or realtor, a clothing boutique or condo, would you be more willing to try the establishment that features a yellowing, half-lit sign announcing its services…or a fresh sign with all letters intact? Do you enjoy seeing more than plain signage? A well-designed image or two, placed strategically, can make any sign more striking.
We’ve had a brutal winter in many parts of the U.S…and certainly in Chicagoland! Now is a great time to see if your shop, residential or corporate signage needs a face lift. We’ve already seen an uptick in business at Sign Artist, as customers are asking for new directory sign panels, banners for temporary branding until storefront build outs are complete, vinyl wraps to turn vans into moving billboards, and new wall murals to brighten a shop interior.

Sign Artist Inc. is experienced with mounting letters on a variety of surfaces. Contact us for your next business or education sign and we’ll discuss the options that make your sign reflect the image that you desire.

Owners of Elmhurst Auto Care updated their outdoor business sign to represent the quality of their service. They partnered with Sign Artist Inc. to update their branding.
Ed and Brad were excellent partners with whom to achieve this goal. They engaged in designing and planning the sign updates. This was key to the project’s success.
