In Design Signs is a 100% owner-operated sign shop
and design studio, serving the Montrose area for
over 12 years. A commitment to quality design
and fabrication stems from backgrounds and training
in fine art and graphic design, as well as long
standing industry experience (30+ collective years).
Our personal and professional work has earned
many awards, including 1st place in the 2005 Sign
Business Auto Art Contest, Vehicle Wraps category.
We have built In Design Signs to be a company that has a
wide range of capabilities, including modern graphic design,
digital printing, cut vinyl, mobile and in-house sandblasting,
woodworking, steel and aluminum welding, print-brokering,
and more. By bringing these capabilities together, we offer
much more than the typical company offering signs. We can
produce unique, creative signs and vehicle lettering, with more
work done in-house to give you quicker turnaround times and
higher quality. And when it comes to those projects that are a
bit weird, donít hesitate to bring them here: weíve lettered
everything from airplanes to sails; creating custom beer
kegs to engraved wooden surfboards. We've wrapped everything
from semi-trailers to toilets and would be glad to enterain
your most unique ideas.
Signs are one of theleast expensive types of advertising
considering the ongoing exposure they provide.
Because of this, making your sign last as long as
possible gives you the best value. And if your
sign is only going to be up for a week, we wonít
sell you something that will last for 10 years.
We are comfortable using a nearly endless list of
materials, because we have the experience to
choose the correct material for the application,
budget and look.
Sign design is specific. We donít have the luxury
of a captive audience like print and web
designers. Because of this we have to make an
eye-catching design that is also readable. Most
sign shops and many designers are woefully unaware
of the impacts of contrast, dead space, & line spacing
to an effective signage design. This is why signs
created by copy shops, welders, or printers, often
leave something to be desired. Good, sign specific
design means more people look, read, and understand
your message. We will always recommend the most
effective design for your situation.
Many sign shops do their pricing on a general
square foot system, ask you to commit to the
price, and then begin design work. We donít
think itís fair to ask you to drop cash on
something you havenít seen. In most situtations,
we prefer to do a design (at no cost to you)
before pricing. That way you know what youíll
be getting for your money, and we can figure
material usage to plug into our proprietary
pricing software.This process allows us to tweak
the design and price to get the perfect balance
for you, while keeping us in the black so weíre
here next time you need us.
