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.
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. recently installed two dimensional letter signs at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The wall signs had brushed aluminum surfaces on acrylic backing with sides painted to match the letter faces. Each sign was prepared to exact specifications to accurately reflect the university’s branding. The signs are mounted on two different surfaces; one is wood with a high-gloss finish, the other is a painted concrete wall. 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. We’ll also advise you as to the optimal mounting so your sign will last for years and still look great.
