We actually custom-build a larger variety of signs than you may be aware of. As a result of our in-house fabrication and installation capabilities, we create and install an incredibly diverse group of both interior and exterior signs. Why search for multiple vendors to complete your sign needs for your new site, when you can avoid the stress and have SIGNARAMA complete it for you?
For instance, we are proud to say that we recently produced all of the signage for a new Lotus Bank location in late February! We surveyed the location, and then quickly got to work fabricating signs to start branding the building, in and out, with the Lotus name. Interior lobby, ATM machine, drive-thru clearance, and parking lot signs are just a few named off of the list. We even installed the signs for Lotus Bank as well.
Never hesitate to ask what type of signage we can do for your building. Think about it; you are under enough stress as is. So let SIGNARAMA take care of you, and your new location signage!
SIGNARAMA introduces the completely re-designed popular Spider Stake. Not only is it more durable, but its a practical replacement for the tired, old and flimsy “H” wire yard sign stakes.
We’re all too familiar with the common, oily, bent over and often broken H-wire stake losing its struggle to remain upright against every wind gust. But that’s not the case with the Spider Stake. It’s engineered to resist the kind of constant punishment Mother Nature enjoys dishing out every day. Sporting a fresh contemporary appearance, the rugged webbed design stands up to the wind and the handy integrated step-peg makes it easy to get the stake into even hard soil. The upper torsion bar design evenly distributes wind loads and faithfully returns the sign back to attention. The Spider Stakes can be used with corrugated plastic substrates, or water-resistant corrugated cardboard for a more economic option. Made from near 100% recycled fiberglass reinforced high-density plastic.

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!
So a little bird told me you were thinking about getting new sign for your business. Good for you! But, it sounds like you’ve been having a rough time trying to figure out which is better for your business: digital printed signs or vinyl applied signs. Let me take a few minutes of your time to help you out.
Digital Printed Signs
Digital printed signs are also known as full color signs. What this means to you is that you can have whatever color you want and you can have as many as you want. This is generally a very good choice for companies that have multiple colors involved in their branding. It also works great for businesses that want a signs that really pops.
Just because digital printing is most commonly used as a solution for having specific or multiple colors, it doesn’t mean you can’t only have one basic color if you want. Another reason for having digital print is that when using the correct materials, it can actually be more durable. Here at SIGNARAMA we have a flatbed printer which will directly print onto the substrate. The printing is scratch resistant, and unlike vinyl, there is no way someone can peel off your graphics.
As for a downfall to digital printing, there is only one I can think of. IF you are planning on having multiple prints done at different times, the colors may not always be 100% identical. They will be extremely close, but there may be a small difference between the colors if you place the signs directly next to each other.
Vinyl Applied Signs
Vinyl applied signs are often known as one color signs, but they can also be used with multiple colors. The only issue with using multiple vinyl colors is the cost will be increased with each color used.
Really, there are only three reasons I can imaging using vinyl for your sign. The first is budget issues. The sign may not look as nice, but at least it will exist.
The second reason is if you need the colors to match 100% every time. Please realize if your sign is sitting in the sun, it will fade, and you won’t be able to match the colors anyway, so this reason varies.
The final reason is if you are using a premium vinyl such as chrome or metallic. We cannot print these colors, so if you want them, vinyl is the way to go. Honestly, this can make for one of the best looking signs, but it will come at a premium price. If you are going to use vinyl for your sign, this what I would recommend.
