Are you looking to get the highest-quality signs for your home, business, or street? If so, then come on over to Mechanical Advertising. Since 1948, we've been providing signs that meet or exceed all legal requirements to everyone from small, family-owned stores right up to the biggest Government projects.
A sign is more than just something you place out by the road. In fact, most signs summarize an incredible volume of information with just a graphic and a few letters. There's not all that much to work with, so getting it right can mean all the difference between a successful sign and one that only causes confusion for drivers and makes your problem worse. Don't worry, though, because our professional designers can help modify existing sign designs or create entirely new ones based on your personal needs.
In general, there are three types of sign designs that are commonly used where people can see them. The first type is a straight graphic representation with no text. These are often used as warning markers, traffic directors, construction warnings, and things of that nature. The second type of sign commonly used is a text-only communication, such as many regulatory signs (stopping, acceptable speeds, and so on). The third, of course, is a hybrid of the two where text is paired with a graphic to elaborate on a particular situation.
Each of these signs has their own use and times when they are appropriate to place in a particular area. For example, while many highways are usually safe to travel on and can tolerate things like naming destinations and the distance to them, a similar distraction placed too closely to an on-ramp can significantly increase the chances of a vehicle collision. A simple graphic sign, in that location, might provide the necessary information with much less risk to drivers.
After so many years providing the highest-quality signs to groups all around the country, we've come to understand the importance of placing the right sign in the right place. Now, all of this can be put to use for you. Do you need custom street signs to help protect disabled children? We can make those for you. Are you looking for road signage to deal with emergency closures or unusual street design? We can print those on request as well.
Of course, one universal feature of signs is that they also need to be installed somehow. A sign that can't be seen isn't doing its job, and we offer a full selection of u-channel posts, mounting hardware, miscellaneous post adaptors, and even vandal-resistant hardware if you're concerned about theft or damage. Some of this hardware can be quite specialized, so if you're not entirely sure how to go about mounting your sign properly, our customer service team can help guide you through the process and make sure that every sign you put up isn't coming down until you want it to.
From simple directions to business branding and more, Mechanical Advertising is your number-one choice for signs.
