The sign business is evolving into the digital printing age. Many small sign shops are trying to strike the balance between maintaining quality and competitive pricing with in-house production and knowing when to outsource.
Against this back-drop of modern day printing complexities, we have identified a niche, for ourselves. If you contact us with a basic sign project... meaning no logo or a simple logo, we can usually have it the same day or within two or three work days.
(NOTE: We can easily do signs with complexities, but not as quickly, unless we have your logo or photo already in our system. We do 90% of our production in-house, primarily just outsourcing large format digital photo printing.)
It might be Monday morning and you are casting around for a sign shop that can have your banner by Tuesday or Wednesday... you call around... everyone says four or five work days... you wanted a photo on it, but the text is the most important... you call us... we tell you we can have it by your deadline. That is our niche.
SIGNS WITH QUICK TURNAROUND PRODUCTION TIME
- banners (big and small)
- magnetic signs for vehicles
- 4'x4' and 4'x8' commercial real estate signs
- For Sale by Owner signs
- vinyl decal lettering (ready for you to install with our how-to advice)
- "A" frame signs
- Handicap Parking signs
- metal "Parking for Customers Only" signs
- custom riders for real estate signs
- any type of basic sign large or small
SIGNS THAT MIGHT TAKE FOUR TO SEVEN WORK DAYS
- vehicle lettering
- custom fabrications such as signs cut into a scroll shape
- signs with digital photographs printed on them
Also the yard signs that often are printed in large quantities for tradesmen, politicians, and realtors can take four to seven work days. This type of printing we outsource locally, but by designing the artwork in our shop... this step often expedites the job straight into our printer's production hopper. For locally printed yard signs, we probably have some of the fastest turnaround time in the Birmingham area.
