custom sign fabrication
design ~ function ~ longevity
We strive to fabricate custom signs that are able to communicate well through good design. We want to implement signage that not only properly identifies your business, but that aesthetically compliments the architecture of the building as well. Your signage is one of the most important advertising tools you will rely upon for the success of your business!
Not only do our signs look great, they are produced to last for a long time and to withstand Michigan weather. We use fabrication methods and materials that are proven and reliable. Our aluminum signs use welded attachments and heavy gauge aluminum to prevent bowing, denting and buckling. An acid bath and an etching primer are used to prepare the aluminum. Matthews Acrylic Polyurethane paints with a UV clear coat that resist fading and vandalism are applied and then baked to 170° in our EPA 6H compliant paint booth creating a lasting finish.

We are able to fabricate using a wide variety of materials to create a sign that fits the needs of the customer.
