Custom Signs FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about Custom Signs

  • What format of my logo will work best?

    To provide a custom sign that meets your needs, it’s important that you provide the logo as a vector based file. You can save your logo as an .eps file for the highest quality reproduction. As long as your logo is vector artwork, it can also be provided as .eps, .ai or PDF file.

  • What resolution do you need?

    All raster images should be a minimum of 100-150 dpi at full production size, depending on viewing distance for the signs.

  • If I have special color matching needs, can FASTSIGNS still help?

    We can use the Pantone Matching System (PMS) to define a color, or we can match color from a CMYK chart printed on the machine that will ultimately create your custom sign. Our consultants can print a test swatch to test the best match for your special color matching needs.

  • Do you recommend full color graphics over black and white?

    Our consultants recommend full color graphics to help you communicate your brand message and enhance the visibility of your business. The choice of color is important when you consider the custom sign for your business. Color graphics are eye-catching and provide a professional look for your custom signs.

  • Do signs come in standard sizes?

    We can create signs in a virtually any size to give your message the greatest chance of being noticed, read and remembered, especially from a distance.
