In this bar and lounge sign example, we hand carved multiple layers in HDU to look like stained birch (light wood color) on top of a dark mahogany wood.

Yes, we do offer computer routing of textures. We can recess a background to look like sandblasted wood for example. In some cases, an artist hand is a better result than a computer router. Here is an example of hand carving a 3-D fish and hand-tooled chisel effects in Sign Foam before final painting:

Georgia Aquarium Southwest Lounge Graphics

Lounge Graphics – We were recently approached to fabricate and install graphics to improve the Southwest Airlines Lounge graphics at the Georgia Aquarium.

The Georgia Aquarium is currently the largest aquarium in the world. It is a fantastic experience, and we are honored to be a part of updating the environment! Our colleagues at AMP Advertising Agency came up with a brilliant concept. Why not take this boring area in on otherwise awesome outfit (BTW – the largest aquarium on the planet)…

As to not interfere with visitors, we were allowed in at closing. We worked straight through the night to be let out at next morning opening. We made quick friends with incredible aquatic life, who were not only friendly, but also VERY interested in what we were doing.

Sign Monument Cost Guideline

Sign Monument Cost – What To Expect.

The most common question our Sales Department receives is…

Question: “What is the cost of one of your monument signs?”

Parkview East Neighborhood Entrance Sign Monument

Answer: “It Depends On What You Want.”

We will listen to your needs by first asking the stage and scope of your project. Do you have an established community, but the developer didn’t think about a sign? Or do you have a sign that is outdated or damaged?

Ask yourself – “Do I want something fantastic, something nice, or just something?”

We house the best designers, the best technology, and the best solutions in the industry. Be open in discussing your budget and your needs and we will deliver the best solution available.

Need cost examples? To get an idea of neighborhood entrance sign monument costs, let us start by looking at some specific projects of real-life sign monuments.

This was new unit to replace an existing dilapidated sign. It has double sided graphics, and the street address on one column. This sign monument cost was $8k delivered.

And here is an example of a brand new community development that just broke ground. We designed this sign monument to match the architecture of the housing, and faux matched the stacked stone that was common on the construction. This brand new double-sided entrance monument was around $14k delivered with the faux stacked stone match:

In this example, the community needed a modest-sized monument but the faux brick MUST match the leasing office the sign would be installed next to. They sent us a camera phone picture of the brick, and we matched it dead on. This example ran around $9k delivered with single sided graphics.
