Frequently asked questions

Q How do I get a quote for a custom reception sign?
A That’s easy. Just contact us, and we’ll get back to you with our quotation right away.

Q Can you come to my business to measure and provide an estimate?
A It is more economical for you to take a photograph of your space and provide measurements for us and we can work from that. We can visit your facility, but there is an additional charge for this service.

Q How long will it take to design, build, and get our new reception sign completed?
A This varies depending on the complexity of your sign. As a rule of thumb, it usually takes two weeks for this process. Other less complex signs can be produced more quickly.

Q Can you match our corporate colours?
A Yes, whether your corporate colours are pantone or CMYK, we can match the colours perfectly on most substrates.

Q What kind of artwork do you need from us?
A We can work with most artwork formats, but for the highest quality signage we ask for vector-based artwork.

Q If I have a basic design, can you make changes to it?
A Yes, we can make small changes to your design before producing. We will need you to approve the changes we make, before we go to production.

Q Can you design my reception or lobby signage?
A Yes, we can work with you on the design. Our experienced in-house team is happy to work with you on the layout, and we work with a number of very capable creative designers. The cost for creative design will be added to our estimate, and must be approved by you before we begin the work.

Q Do we get a proof before you go to production?
A Yes, we prepare a proof in pdf that we will end to you. This proof shows all the specifications, including with dimension and all the details of how the sign will be constructed. We request approval for green light to build.
