Recently, in our weekly staff meeting we came up with our credo “Avoid the Ordinary.” We want our customers to know we are here to provide extraordinary customer service. We are NOT Ordinary.
What is the Right Choice for Your Business
A Custom Sign is a significant investment for any business. We, at Alabama Metal Art, commit to furnish you as a customer, a sound solution to meet your business requirements. Our designers Chris, Robert, and Logan will have numerous questions for you. They want to ensure they have a complete picture of what you need. We will make the entire process as painless as possible.
Why A Metal Art Business Sign
We as consumers have so many choices in today’s marketplace. Because of this Alabama Metal Art strives to provide the best customer service, a quality product at an affordable price. Metal Business signs are not cheap, but are affordable for the quality and look you get from having one. Whether your sign is crafted from carbon steel or aluminum the main characteristic is durability. If you are considering a business sign for the outside environment the longevity of a metal sign will outlast acrylic, PVC, or wood. Indoors, these metal signs will last for decades.
Versatility in Metal
Many of our metal business signs are manufactured from 1/8″ metal. However, you have the option to use a thinner metal depending upon your application. This is something we take into consideration when making a multiple layer sign. All our designs are cut out on our CNC laser which provides you with significant versatility when purchasing a custom sign. By using the CNC laser, we can do something as simple as cut out letters or something as complex as a multi-layer sign. By mixing styles, or layers we can create something which will make your business stand out. We want your customer to have a lasting impression of your custom sign.
One part of our design process, we find both challenging and enjoyable is incorporating your logo into the design of the sign. Sometimes a simple stencil cut is sufficient. Clemmons & Hammer Seed, Inc. is a strong example of this. The wall which this sign is mounted to will show through adding to the appearance of the business sign. stratxIT is an example where the logo required some color. We incorporated several different backplates to show through the stencil to produce the desired look for this logo. RocketCity Chiropractic takes a stylized cut out of the logo mounted directly to the wall. We will work with you to get the perfect look to show off your business logo.
Let’s Add Powder to the Mix
By adding the option of a powder coat finish, Alabama Metal Art can offer you even more options. Powder coating comes in crinkles, wrinkles, leatherettes, veins, hammertones and antique textured finishes. Combinations of these textures potentially can make your sign more dynamic. The RIPFIT Sign we did for an Indoor Cycling & Cardio Fitness Facility in Bluebell, PA. is a great example of this. The black base of this sign is done in a mini texture with a standard smooth white showing through as a backplate. The RIPFIT lettering is finished in a Silver Hammertone with the gloves and the cycle finished in a gloss red. You can see how the layers and different textures in this sign add to the professional look of this sign. Too say the least the combinations of texture and styles are numerous.
Let Nature Help
Another option is to allow nature to “age” the metal and another dynamic to your sign. Walter’s Point and Ava’s Place are examples you may want to consider. In both cases the back plates are unfinished and are left to rust. As you can see this adds a rustic interest to these signs. It may be a technique you wish to incorporate into your design.
Finally, as you can see there are many styles, colors and textures that can be part of your custom business sign. Here are a few things to consider when working with us to create the perfect sign for you:
- What finished size do you want your business sign to be
- Will your business sign be inside or outside?
- Do you have a logo or existing design concept you want us to use?
- Will weight play into the design of your business sign?
- Carbon Steel
- Where will the sign be mounted?
- Will it Require Holes
- Do you want the mounting holes to be hidden?
- Do you want it to be set off the wall (spacers)?
- Have you seen a style on our website that appeals to you?
- Stencil Cut with or without a backplate
- Individual letters
- A multiple layer sign
- What colors are you considering?
- Do you want to include texture?
- Do you want the metal to age in the elements?
- What is the zip code of where we will ship your sign?
