Choosing a Sign for Your Business
Quality and Efficiency
YOUR TIME FRAME
The typical time frame of signs for production is three to four weeks from receiving the permit. Time frames vary due to magnitude of projects, permitting delays and other unseen obstacles. We pledge we will give the quickest possible turnaround on your sign.
We are also aware of time sensitive requirements such as grand openings that must be met. We will do whatever we have to do within our control to meet your deadlines.
Not all signs are created equal and though signs from different sign companies may look the same at the time of installation; the proof of quality and durability comes into play a few years down the road. We buy the finest materials and build our signs to last with a quality learned from 60 years in the sign business.
The phrase “you get what you pay for” is as true in the sign industry as in other industries. It is easy to cut corners on the manufacturing of a sign and still cosmetically have a good looking sign. We choose not to go this direction. We will build you a quality, long-lasting sign with pride and the satisfaction that no one could do better.
We use a thicker grade of aluminum for our channel letters than many companies. Some companies manufacture letters with .032 thickness aluminum while we use .050 thickness for the returns and .063 thickness for the backs.
Many channel letter sign returns and backs are now stapled or pop-riveted together. This type of construction makes the letters susceptible to flexing and eventual deterioration. All channel letters manufactured by Florida Sign use the stronger and more robust technique of welding the returns to the back.
With so many days of sunshine in Florida, color fading is a major concern. All materials will fade, the significant question is how fast. We use the best of pigmented plastic and professional two-part state-of-the-technology polyurethane paint on all signs we produce.
After a period of time, the difference between a home improvement store best brand paint and the $150 per gallon professional products we use will be easy to see.
We also offer the new Light Emitting Diode (LED) illuminated sign technology for Channel Letters. This technology offers several advantages over the traditional bent neon tubes. It uses significantly less electricity and a single element failure does not cause the letter to go dark.
Hundreds of individual LEDs light the letter so even if a few go out, the letter remains brightly illuminated. Typically, the initial cost of LED lighting is higher, but there are various considerations that need to be made before the method of illumination is decided. We will work with you to determine what method best meets your needs.
