Pro Tips:

1.        The wall and sign color should contrast for maximum effect

2.        When taking photos, take one directly in front and of the whole of the wall. If you tape a standard size of copy paper to the wall in low tack tape, the photo will help us to scale the sign for size to the wall. 

3.        When signs are removed from walls they will always damage the wall in some way. We offer to patch any damage and remove tape and silicone for a small fee but we recommend to contact a professional painter to repaint the wall before we install your sign.

4.        PDF and JPG’s are good for concepts but we’ll need a ‘vector’ file for production (ex: .ai or .eps format)

5.        Printing – send us your preferred Pantone colors as early as possible, sample swatches available

6.        Painting – paint specifications are different from Pantone (which is a print specification) so we offer a close match to any PMS color. Should the color be very important to your brand image and reproduction, we can offer a painted color swatch sample for approval prior to reproduction.

7.        Visit our showroom to see the many choices and options of material available (by appointment only – no charge/obligation).  Alternatively, visit our Gallery website to see many images to stimulate your creative ideas. Visit www.calibersi.com/office-signs-gallery
