On occasion our customers ask, “Why do I have to give a deposit? Can’t I just pay you when it’s done?” We provide our customers with payment terms of 50/COD. In other words, we require a 50% deposit and the balance paid at completion. This policy is much like what you would expect with any construction type project.
The purpose of the deposit is three-fold.
First, when our customer accepts our proposal on a sign project, they are in essence, “contracting” SIGNARAMA to fabricate a sign. With every contract, the law requires ‘consideration’, or money, to make the agreement binding and seal the deal. This practice is designed to protect both the customer and SIGNARAMA.
Second, SIGNARAMA commits valuable financial resources to our customer projects by purchasing material, labor, and often city permits in advance that are specific to our customer’s custom project.
Third, we ask our customers to show the same commitment to their project by providing a deposit to share in these initial start-up fabrication costs.
Since our products are generally custom manufactured, reusing material from a cancelled job is typically not a viable option.
We appreciate our customer’s commitment to their projects. SIGNARAMA is fully committed and excited to present our customers custom project at completion.
We never quit working to keep each and every one of you smiling. And this New Year, we have added three new members to the Sign-A-Rama family to aid with continuing to make that happen. Meet Drew, Katelyn, and Micah: Your newest sign experts!
Wondering who that unfamiliar face is that is in and out of the office lately? Don’t be mistaken; that is Drew—our new Outside Sales Representative! His main duty will be to spread our name to businesses that are unaware of the Sign-A-Rama experience. Although he is new to Sign-A-Rama-Detroit, his true journey began in 2009, where he actually worked as Store Manager of the Plymouth-Canton location before briefly leaving the company. When he, however, was approached with a sales oriented position with us, he was thrilled to bring his exceptional customer service skills back to both the Sign-A-Rama family and customers!
If you have called the store lately, you may be wondering why Torey is not on the line. Well, that new voice on the phone is Katelyn, our Inside Sales Representative! Torey has recently been promoted to Project Manager, so we brought in Katelyn to take on the job! Have small indoor signage needs, such as A-Frames or banners? Katelyn is your girl! She will assist you with the ordering of your smaller signs, while keeping you up-to-date with the status of it all! Although she has years of experience in sales, she is new to the sign industry, and ready to expand her knowledge of everything signs!
If you will be needing real-estate signs installed sometime in the near future, then you will soon be having the pleasure to meet our last, but certainly not least, addition to the family—Micah! As our new Real Estate Installer, he is ready to make your Sign-A-Rama experience even easier with installing your larger, v-shaped real-estate signs. With a great deal of construction and installing work under his belt, he will be working with Nick, our already existing installer, to make the process as quick and hassle-free as possible. No matter the weather, Micah will be more than happy to do the job! We are excited to have Micah, along with Drew and Katelyn, as a part of the team!
Come on by and meet our new additions. The three are sure to make your next experience one that reaches Sign-A-Rama standards!

Color means a lot to people. Colors evoke emotions, and can help reference objects, companies or even people. Colors also help make things stand out, whether that be in a good way or a bad way. So, when it comes to choosing a sign color, it really can be a big decision.
The help you understand, consider the following situation: You are told to look at a list of 1000 numbers and point out all of the 5’s, it will take some time. Now, if someone highlights each number, but makes sure to highlight all of the 5’s the same color, you will be able to easily pick out what you need.
Notice how I said same color. When you are looking for a sign, you need to make sure the color matches your brand. People are already associating your company with your logo colors. If you choose a sign color that is different from your brand’s colors, you could be creating a disconnect in your customers’ minds.
Now, if you are just beginning your brand, then you are not limited to your brand colors, but this is the time to make a conscious decision as to what those colors will be.
Another very important detail when selecting a sign color is contrast. If you have strong contrast between your type and it background (or your channel letters and the wall color), then it will drastically improve your signs effectiveness.
A great example is a black sign with big, bold, bright yellow letters. A not so great example is red on black, as a white stroke will need to be added to the red. Will it work? Yes, but it won’t be the most effective solution.
Your sign isn’t the only one to look at though when comparing contrast, as your neighbors can have an effect as well. When I drive down a road in Madison Heights, I notice a stretch where there are three signs on a small building that all use black and yellow as their contrast colors. Unfortunately, this combination causes all three to blend into each other. If any of those companies would use a secondary company color, it would really help them stand out.
To summarize real quick, when looking for a sign color, the two main areas of focus are matching your brand’s colors, while keeping a strong contrast. If you do this, we guarantee you will have effective colors. Visit our Troy sign showroom to get started on your sign!
As technology advances, so does the sign industry. Digital signage is breaking ground as a great new way to vamp up your advertising in your company! These gadgets do not in any way replace original interior and exterior signs. However, the combination of the two is advertising gold! By having both types of signage, you have all of the necessary tools to reach every type of customer right at your fingertips.
How, you ask? Digital displays help deliver all of the new information that you have been trying to get to the customer after your original signage, such as a wall sign, has already drawn them in.
The biggest plus: as your advertising needs change, so can the graphics on the digital display! There is nothing worse than feeling as though your advertising plan has become a chore. For example, some businesses purchase banner after banner for the companies’ specials that change weekly. Why spend the extra time and effort when there is a product out there that you can reuse indefinitely?
In addition to your already existing advertising tactics, these displays help reach more customers with more up-to-date information. No matter what signage is already present in your company, it is never too late to get with the times—and go digital!
