Score Board Sponsor Signage

A little while back, Signs On Time had made some sponsor signs for the local high school. There were sponsors that needed to be added to their score board.

These signs are 2'x3' signs. Don't they look so small (but, they fit perfectly with the rest of the board). It always depends on where you place your signage as to how big (or small) it may look. It also depends on the surroundings. It there are multiple small(er) things around your big(ger) signage, it will look bigger. Perspective is everything.

Ready to Slide into Home!

McBean Park in Lincoln asked us to make some 3 dimensional letters for them. They wanted something easy to read, nice looking and inexpensive. It looks so small from a distance and they look metal.

But, when you look up close, they are actually 18" tall plastic letters. You can't really tell that they're plastic, until you're right ton top of them.

Take another look. Looks like metal letters to me.

If you need any type of 3 dimensional lettering, we're your sign shop. Contact Signs On Time today for a quote!

Halloween Time!

Last month, we made a sign for a new halloween store in town. This is made out of orange coroplast with black text and spider. The entire sign is over 16 feet tall and 38 feet wide. Here's a picture trying to give you a good prospective (compared to the small door off to the right).

Do you have any big signage needs? We can make signs any size!

Lettering that Fools your Eye

Signs On Time has made many 3-dimensional lettering projects. What material does the below photo look like it's made out of?

It looks like gold metal lettering. That would not be correct. It is actually gold plastic letters. This customer did have the gold metal letters, but they kept on getting stolen. They wanted the same look, but a less expensive price. This met all their requirements.

Is there 3-dimensional lettering that you need for your office or building?

Window Lettering

Here is some window lettering that we made and installed for a local jeweler. Of course, the customer wanted to keep a part of the window open to show off the jewelery and we designed this to accommodate.

The background is burgundy with gold lettering. This window gets direct sun and (during summer months) heat for over half the day and the vinyl material that we used will hold up in these conditions. This came out really good and the customer was extremely happy to see it complete when he came back from vacation.

Have you caught up from the holiday? Need any name badges, window lettering, car door lettering or yard signs? Contact Signs On Time today to get started. Let's see what we can do for you!

MDO Signage

Here is a sign that we made for one of our customers. This sign is made of 1/2" thick MDO that is 50"x48".

The sign is attached to 2 wooden posts outside the office so their customers can see the entrance easily.

If you have a difficult entrance or hard to find place of business, one of these site signs will help your customers find your place with ease. The colors on the sign are unlimited. We can print your logo or anything you would like on the sign. The MDO can be single or double sided. If the sign would be facing two ways to enter, you may want to think about a double sided sign.

Directories & Monuments

Recently, Signs On Time made some 3 dimensional directory signs for a near by office building. These signs turned out great! The directory strips (shown below) are 1/4" thick black PVC with a brushed gold laminate. The size is 2 3/4" x 15". The lettering is made from a matte black vinyl. They are very easy to read and look very classy. The strips are attached the frame with velcro, so they can be removed when tenants move in and out. This makes the change very simple. At the same building, we also made their monument signage. This has the same brushed gold laminate, so it will match in the interior signage. It is made from a different material (the backing). This is made from 6 3/8" x 66" black 1/8" thick acrylic. This particular signage didn't need to be as 3 dimensional as the interior signage. This, too, has matte black lettering on top of the brushed gold laminate.
Everything flows very well with the exterior and interior signage. The customer was very pleased with the end result. We often make directories and monument signage out of many different types of materials. Contact us today to see how we can help you!

Lincoln Airport Signage

Signs On Time often makes signage for the Lincoln Airport. They often get aluminum signage to advertise for the people in the airport. The signs below are 12"x58" .080 aluminum that can have as many colors as needed. These signs are very sturdy and last for many years.

The below signage is a swing set a-frame. The sign itself is 3' tall x 2' wide. When wind comes up, the sign flows with the wind and doesn't become an issue (unless there are high winds, in that case, we would recommend bringing the sign in).

The a-frame signs can be single or double sided with as many colors, graphics or text as you would like. A-frames are great for advertising you store, or even a sale. They are brought in every day and are very light weight, so this is manageable. Give us a call today to get a price quote. We would love to help!

Restroom ADA Signs

Signs On Time makes many different types of ADA signage. We make anything from exit, exit route, handicapped accessible signs to custom made ADA signage and so much more.

Last week, we made some custom restroom ADA signs for a local contracting company. They needed something special that met the requirements of their customer. They requested a stainless steel surface with black pictograms.

Since stainless steel is so expensive, I recommended a brushed aluminum surface with the black pictograms. They were so happy with the final product and for the fact that they saved money not purchasing the stainless steel, but getting the same look.

If we have another option for something that you need, we will let you know. We just want you to be happy with the end product. We can make anything you need. Give us a call today for a price quote.

Materials & Uses

Signs On Time makes all sorts of signs. From job site signage to yard signs. From exterior building signage to name badges. You need it, we can make it. We will always give you recommendations to what we may think would be best for your use.

If your business orders a banner and is in a high wind area, we would recommend wind holes. Now, these aren't actually holes in the banner, more like slits to allow the wind to pass through without damaging the banner.

If there might by a lot of pressure on the corners for a long period of time, we may recommend having the corners reinforced.

If a pole is needed to help support the banner, we would be using pole pockets (we don't supply the poles).

We make signs out of many different types of materials. If you are uncertain of what to use, we can recommend something the would suit your signage needs best.
One of the uncommon materials is acrylic. Acrylic is one of the durable materials, which is a thin plastic material.

Dibond is another sturdy material. It is a 1/8" thick rigid composite board consisting of a hard plastic core laminated with aluminum on both sides.

This is styrene (with an easel back). If you don't need the easel back, you don't have to have it. This is a flexible indoor plastic. The easel back is made out of cardboard.

This is rhino board. It is a tough, rigid, yet light weight board that stands up to weather.

These are just some of our uncommon materials that we do use. We carry many other types of material that are used for many different types of signage. We will help you choose what is best for your usage. Contact us today and we'll help you get started.

Interior Directional & Room Signage

We make all kinds of different types of signage. Did you know that we can make interior directional and room signage? Well, we do!

The photo below is something that we made for Sierra College. They needed some double sided room signage and this is what we cam up with. The green and tan are to match their room colors. It really goes well with everything.

Everything really comes together nicely. We are glad the customers were so happy with the final product! Call or email us today for your 3-dimensional lettering price quote.

Parking Lot Signage

We get a lot of requests for ADA signage. One request that we had this morning was for this parking lot sign. These signs have recently been changed. They use to be 24"x18" with a reflective blue background and white letters.

Now, these signs are 24"x24" reflective white background with black text. They have always been engineer grade aluminum. They come with pre-drilled holes on the top and bottom. Just let us know "where the vehicles can be reclaimed" and the phone number. We'll add that on at no extra charge.

We also carry most (if not all) the other parking lot signage. We try to keep a full stock on the ISA symbol, Van Assessable signage, Minimum Fine $250, ISA with Parking Only, Reserved Parking, and the No Parking Any Time signs. If there is ever anything else that you need, we can get it for as soon as possible. Call us if you have any questions. We hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Donohoe and Company 3-Dimensional Lettering

This week, we installed some 3 dimensional lettering in an office building. This was for Donohoe & Company. The installation went smoothly.

The logo and lettering are 1/2" thick PVC. The letters are plain black PVC while the logo is a spacial paint match color (that matches their logo colors). The lighting looks great with the letters.

From the far side, you can really see the dimension.

Another great job by Signs On Time!

Fire Extinguisher Signs

Signs On Time produces a lot of ADA signage for local construction companies. One request that we have had is to make a custom fire extinguisher sign to mount on a wall.

This sign shown above is 1/8" thick x 6" tall x 6.25" (total) wide Plexiglas. The bend is at 2.75". This is a pretty standard graphic that we use and we can produce these to be any color.
We can produce almost anything. If we do not already have it made, we can get it for you. These signs are a pretty quick turn around, too. Contact Signs On Time today to get started on your order!

Cokeva 3 dimensional lettering

Over the last few weeks, we have been working with Coveka (formally Comtek). Because they have changed their name, they needed new signage for their lobby and outside of their building.

These letters are in their lobby. They are 11" tall, 3/4" thick black PVC with a clear acrylic that we back painted to match the company's logo.

Here's an up close shot. They look so nice. These are the colors of their logo and we were able to match them. If you give us a PMS colors, we can match them.

We also did their exterior 3 dimensional lettering. These are 24" tall formed plastic letters. These are also color matched. These letters are guaranteed for workmanship.

When we were working with these letters, they were huge. Now, they look smaller compared to the entire building. The customer is so happy with all the 3 dimensional lettering that they purchased!

The overall sign is 4"x10" , it is 1/2" thick with 1/4" tall text. It weights about 5 pounds.

One of our customers uses these as a memorial for people. There are many uses for this type of plaque. We will work with you on the design and give any suggestions as needed. Give us a call today and we can get started!

Light Boxes are as Easy as 1,2,3

The best and easiest way to have customer notice your business (especially at night) is to have an illuminated light box (or non-illuminated) sign. Having a sign like this will bring attention to your business when people are driving by. If your business is open at night as well, you may want something that can light up and grab attention easily.

You can supply the artwork, or we can assist that that department, as well. We want to make this as easy as possible for you. When it comes to the design, less is more. People will be driving by (usually at a fast pace) and will have time to read only the business name. Eye catching colors are also a prefect option. Red is the #1 color for this.

Here is a illuminated light box sign that we made for Nor Cal Auto Body. They supplied the artwork and we printed it for them. It was very easy for them to have this made. This particular sign is 3'x8'. I love the colors and they really do pop when you drive by.
