Frequently asked Questions
Q: How much will my sign cost?
A: All signs are generally custom made, which means no two are alike. An electric sign will start at about $1000.00 and go up from there.
Q: What is Vector art, and why can't you use a jpeg?
A: Let's first start by defining a bitmap or jpeg. A bitmap is nothing more than a picture of something consisting of a series of pixels, when combined makes an image. Vector art is a series of nodes and lines. Because these outlines have matmatical coordinates, the art can be scaled to size and also used to control our machines that make your sign.
For example. If you wanted to have your car repaired you could not take the mechanic a picture of your vehicle (jpeg). You would need to take the car. In the same way, we can not use a picture, we need the original art to make your sign.
