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.
Sign Artist’s crew was busily installing a 15-foot pylon sign in a Western Suburb of Chicago, when a city official strode up to check our code compliability. Had the crew obtained proper permits to revamp the sign? When the official saw our paperwork, all signed and sealed at city hall, he smiled and joined us for a photo.
Does code compliance matter? Yes, and many a business owner has discovered this the hard way. On one recent job, Sign Artist was asked to remove a beautiful 10-foot-wide channel letter sign, because the previous sign company had not followed city codes in its installation. The improper sign looked great on the store front, but was not compatible with other storefront signs in the complex, so had to go. Sign Artist took care of removal of the old sign, and design and installation — and code compliant paperwork — for the new sign.
What’s involved in obtaining proper paperwork from city hall? Owners either file for permits themselves, or hire Sign Artist to do the leg and phone work, in sending dimensional and other information, and photos of the projected sign, to appropriate staff at city offices. The process of obtaining permits does require certain fees and can take some time, even several weeks or more. If a business owner wants his or her sign installed ASAP, then the code and permitting issues should be addressed efficiently, or crew and owner will face delays in the install.
Make everyone happy — dot every “i” and cross every “t,” regarding city permits! Give Sign Artist a call for any questions about the process, and we’ll smooth the way for you, ensuring that your sign will make you — and your city officials — smile.
Let Sign Artist do the legwork in obtaining proper exterior sign permits!

As Sign World owners met for the sessions and spent time comparing notes, one thing was clear: Sign Artist’s commitment to its clients to visit large-scale sign environments to gauge installs, is invaluable to making us a top-ranked sign company. One example, is Sign Artist’s install of the Elmhurst Auto Care pylon sign on North Avenue in Elmhurst, which required site visits to properly plan for the production and install of the sign. Sign World Convention speakers and company owners from across North America agree, that this level of service is vital in creating top signage.
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.
