Building identification is your first introduction to the public and plays a very important part of the overall look and feel of your property.  Whether this is completed with a monument, post and panel, or dimensional letters on the building, careful consideration is very important.

For exterior use, dimensional letters offer a simple building address to your company identity. Add stand-offs to create a shadow look and you can affordably improve the building appearance and recognition adding value to the property.  There are different types of illumination options to step it up a notch even further!

Another option could be a pan sign with your company name and logo attached to the side of your building.  These too can be illuminated!

Choose from one of our standard options or contact us today to create your own custom design.  Our team of designers and account manager will work with you to provide the right solution as well as meet local code requirements.

Their history: "The Miracles of Mitch Foundation was founded in 2003, by Steve Chepokas, in honor of his son Mitch who died of cancer. Mitch had a huge heart, and before he died, he knew he wanted to help others who were less fortunate than him. He took all of his bank savings and slipped envelopes full of money under the doors of other cancer patients in the hospital with him. He made his dad pinky swear to continue helping cancer kids.  Today, the Miracles of Mitch Foundation has helped more than 400 families by providing financial and quality-of-life care. We have become inspired by Mitch’s story to raise money for these families and for the cancer kids known as “Kids Who Can’t”."

Looking for a vandal resistant sign?  Having troubles with the lettering on signs being picked off or the paint being chipped off?  Consider upgrading your signage to Designer Sign Systems 3D Graphics signage.  Born out of an idea from 3M, Designer Sign Systems is one of the only signage manufacturers to provide a sign that the raised text, colors and Braille cannot be scratched off.  Unlike competitive products, all of your color is thermal vacuum formed below a protective covering.  This protects the color and provides the additional benefit of being able to clean the sign faces with more aggressive materials without harming the sign. 

The signs can be mounted with or without frames, can include single and multi-color backgrounds and even logos.

If you are interested in learning more about our vandal resistant 3D Graphics signage, we would be more than happy to meet with you and see how we can help! Please contact us at customerservice@designersign.com or by calling 763.784.5858.

Designer Sign Systems is proud to be a sponsor of the JAKESTRONG Organization and their 5K race which is scheduled for June 1, 2013 in Powell, Ohio!

Their history: "The JAKESTRONG 5K is a local grass-roots fundraising event that started in May, 2011 after Jacob (“Jake”) Carlino, a 12 year old boy at the time, was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. As Jake continues to courageously fight his battle with cancer, his positive outlook and bravery continue to touch all those that he comes in contact with. It is his wish, and possibly someday, his own mission that all of us can help put an end to this awful disease and prevent other children from walking this path of hardship. Our goal is to raise over $1 million for pediatric cancer research ... The JAKESTRONG name itself signifies one boy’s mission to involve local communities to help make a difference for all children fighting cancer by building awareness and raising the much needed funds for pediatric cancer research."
