The idea of ordering custom signage can understandably be a little daunting. There are many different variables and options to think of when placing an order. Size, colours, materials, installation method and design are just some of the things that need to be considered. Not to worry, Royal's staff is here to help make the process as quick and painless as possible. When ordering custom signs, one of Royal's customer service representatives will begin by asking a few questions, "Are the signs intended to be interior or exterior?", "What colour scheme is used in its surroundings?", "Are there any bylaw specific signs needed?". You don't need to have the answers to all the questions, but remember, the more information, the better!
Often times, your sales rep will recommend a site inspection to ensure the most accurate information is available before moving on with the design, manufacturing and installation of your signs. Site inspections are all about gathering information. Measurements, pictures and troubleshooting for any potential lighting or mounting problems are all important in making sure the end product will be as spectacular as you imagine! Once as much information as possible is acquired, Royal's staff will begin the design process.
Recently, Royal was approached to design custom directional and room identification signage for an apartment complex in Sherwood Park, Alberta. Here is the information the design team had to work with:
- Three, four storey apartment buildings
- Three digit number on each sign
- Braille not needed
- Visibility is important; lighting in building is excellent
- Client requests signs be approx. 5" x 3"
- Moderate budget; keep costs down while maintaining quality
- Tamper resistant
- Use silver coloured material
With that information, Royal's team was able to begin work on the design process. Shown below are early concept sketches.
Once a design was chosen, computer renderings as well as a prototype of a room identification sign were made to present to the customer. These are shown in the pictures below.
Once the customer has approved the design, the manufacturing of the signs can begin and Royal's experienced and professional installation staff is always available to install your signs.
Don't be afraid to ask for custom signs; logos, colours, shapes and materials, the decision can be yours! From concept, to fabrication, to installation, custom orders are made easy with Royal.
