FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What kind of deposit do you require?

 

We create custom signage built just for you.  Consequently, we will require a 50% deposit before we begin production.

 

If I give you my logo or graphics, what file format works best?

 

 

In general, as signs tend to be much larger than printed graphics, the best artwork would be in the form of a "vector" file.  The most common are in ".ai" or ".eps" file formats.

Depending on your needs and the design of the sign, many formats could be viable. We will discuss this on a case by case basis.

 

 

Can you make a sign from a digital photograph?

 

Yes, and we do often! The better quality the photograph, the better your digital image will turn out!

 

I see many vehicles that are completely covered in advertising, can Signarama provide this service?

 

 

Certainly!

These are known as "full vehicle wraps".  Full wraps can be quite expensive- usually in excess of $2000.

Working within your budget, we can also design partial wraps or panel graphics that will get you message out to the world at significantly lower cost.

 

 

If I have special color matching requirements, or need to have my letterhead and business cards matched can Signarama meet my needs?

 

Yes. We can match your existing colours from a sample you provide or to Pantone (PMS) colour. Generally we will print a sample for your approval on the same vinyl we will be using to produce your sign.

Most vehicles can be lettered in one business day.

 

Can my sign be delivered?

 

Yes, we can deliver your signs.

What is the largest sign I could order from Signarama?

 

 

There are no signs too large for us.

However, we do draw the limit at sky-writing!

 

 

Do I need a permit for my sign?

 

 

Maybe.  On new building, the answer is more usually "yes".

Some municipalities may also require a Building Permit.

We will do the work to find out exactly what you need.

While you can certainly take care of permits yourself, some of Customers find the process daunting as the submission requires site plans, attachment drawings (etc). We have the ability to take care of the full permitting process on your behalf.

Please recognize that in most municipalities, the approval process will take at least 2 weeks and more typically 4 weeks.  It's best to start the process early!
