What is a Dimensional Sign?

We start with letters and a logo. We take a sheet of material and a very expensive CNC Router and cut the letters out. Because we control the manufacturing, we can use fonts and enhance your sign to make it stand out.

The range of materials is very wide, but 3 types are very popular: Brushed Aluminum, Acrylic and PVC. Why are these 3 the “go to” materials? They look great, are durable and they are available. We have stock of these materials. Come by and look!

Depth – many materials come in a range of thicknesses. Common thicknesses range from 1/8” to 1”. There are some “tricks” too. Often, we will laminate a clear or white to another color. This is striking and a cool look. We can show you several ways to give your sign that “cool” factor. In a competitive world a little edge helps. Signage, once paid for, works for free to make your business “pop”. Need a new sign? We can help. The result is more people coming through the door, more sales, and a better company.
