Eggology earns Grade A for this creative illuminated lobby sign design! Backlit with LEDs, and custom fabricated and installed by Sign Artist, this new restaurant sign in South Barrington, Illinois, is hung and ready to roll. This fresh branding sports a playful yet elegant shape and color scheme, that pop from the anchor wall. Photos below show the final stages of fabrication at Sign Artist’s studio. Our crew took special delight in the creativity and finished product of this sign! Materials include brushed-metal and translucent vinyl, and LED lights, fitted into a custom cabinet built at the Sign Artist studio. 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!

Custom signs from Sign Artist will bring an extra flare to your celebration! The mother of the groom wanted a bright Chicago sign under which photos of family could be memorialized. Chicago’s Bridgeport Art Center was the venue, a great industrial-chic space from the world-class city’s past. To achieve the right effect, designer Erin Bartholomew worked with the family to create a sign that harmonized with the historical and artistic nature of the Skyline Loft. The sign was built with an internal frame to allow it to hang safely. Bright LED lighting brings the translucent sign face to life. A dimmer allows the photographer to adjust the brightness for optimal photos. 3M film allowed us to block the light in the dark areas, while it shone freely through the jewel-like embellishments of the Chicago Theater-inspired design.
Stuart always wanted his own business, and in summer 2019 the dream came to fruition. Dini’s Ice Cream in Roselle, IL opened in July serving the best-directly from Wisconsin cows. A keystone of his advertising strategy is an illuminated sign. It’s visible from several hundred feet while driving on Irving Park Road. It features his kitten, Dini and his new logo. Sign Artist is proud to promote this excellent local business with a new channel letter sign! Visit Dini’s at 346 East Irving Park Rd (IL-19) in Roselle.
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!

LED signs and electronic message centers (EMC) are an investment in your business that pays dividends. The Small Business Administration performed research on the effect of updating business signs and found that sales increased by a minimum of 15% after a new sign was installed.
An EMC requires a larger investment than a static sign, yet it is best to consider the impact on your business’ growth. If you have sales of $10,000/month and you install an electronic sign, that means your revenue could increase by a minimum of $1,500/month. If you lease an EMC for $500/month, you’re still increasing gross income by $1,000.
In addition to increasing sales, electronic message centers qualify for a tax deduction. This helps to reduce your tax burden at the same time that you improve sales.
Other benefits to installing EMCs include the lower cost of making thousands of advertising impressions on potential customers in a day than other types of ads. Many of the people that pass your sign see it every day, thereby increasing the probability that the next time they need your service, you will be on their list of who they talk to.
Not only can you reduce other costly advertising, you have the opportunity to display multiple messages during the time that one drives past the sign. You inform potential customers about special offers, business hours and new products. Drivers pay attention to your sign because it stands out among all of the other signs on the parkway. Passersby read your sign from a greater distance and that means they can receive more information about your services. They’ll have a greater chance of remembering your business!
