1.) Where is the sign going?
Thinking about if you'll need the signs for indoors or outdoors can tell alot about durability & the materials we'll use but also help determine if your sign needs to be big or small to be effective.
2.) What is your deadline?
Many but not all orders can be produced "next day". How quickly you will need it can eliminate several options. Stainless steel would be out of the question if your meeting is tomorrow but we can make banners, posters, placards & temporary signs so you won't look unprepared to your clients & show up empty-handed to your conference.
3.) Glossy or Matte finish?
Glossy signs work best outdoors & we believe tend to repel water & dirt the best. Matte or semi-gloss signage looks nice indoors without so much glare. This aids in legibility. A very low sheen or matte finish is cruicial for signs that are photographed or used in backdrops for video conferencing and webcasts.
4.) What is your budget?
Certainly there are many custom looks we can achieve and get a great look at a great price. Sometimes only solid brass will do but if the budget doesn't call for it, we can help come up with a solution that is a much better fit cost-wise.
5.) How will I hang the sign?
Will you need our installation services or can you simply place your new poster on an easel borrowed from the hotel where you're hosting your event? A 30 foot banner is no good to you if you're not able to hang it 30 feet in the air by yourself. We can work with you to figure out how best to hang or display your new signs.
6.) What type of finishing do I need?
Will you need grommets in your banners or holes drilled in your aluminum signs? We can take care of that for you. We provide velcro hook & loop - strips & dots, clear envelopes, cardboard folding easel backs, pole pockets & many other finishing techniques to help you utilize the signs we make for you.
7.) SIZE, QUANTITY, CONTENT, MATERIALS & DEADLINE....answer these questions and you're ready to place your order!
