    I have a local sign shop in town. Try the yellow pages for sign design

    Yea, go local. This way you can sit down with someone and decide exactly what you want. Also, if there is a problem, you have someone to go to instead of sending emails back and forth.

    Try yellow pages, look under signs by tomorrow. This co is franchised nationally, and makes computer cut vinyl letters, as well as magnetic signs, and generally can cad design any kind of sign you can imagine.

    i looked locally and found ,the difference in pricing was amazing.800.00 to 350.00 were bids i received. these bids were oranges to oranges! So Shop around it will be worth your time.Note if your letters on your sign are vinyl they make 2, 6 ,and 10 year warranty,be sure to ask. another help is to make a good drawing of what you want.

    well just got off the phone with a sign co and they said it would cost $98 for a 2'x4' .040 aluminum sign with 5 year vinyl and $131 for .080 aluminum. then he asked about yard signs he gave me quote of $4.15 for each sign w/o stakes. does this seem like a good deal or what?

    The important thing to do is to shop around locally. I could tell you that it is a good deal here, but in your area, I don't know. I guess it boils down to how much of your time you want to spend for the return you expect.:waving: :waving:

    If you go local, go directly to the sign shop and look at the materials in person, you really should see what you are getting. Remember you usually get what you pay for, so cheaper isn't always the way to go.
