The signage fabrication process for National Signs.

An Inside Look at National Signs’ Signage Fabrication Process

At National Signs, we don’t settle for cookie-cutter templates. Every sign that we create is designed, built, and installed to be a unique expression of your business. Our team has more than seven decades of combined experience, and we put all of it to work for you.

Today, we thought we’d give you a peek behind the curtain to see what goes on at National Signs every day. We hope you enjoy this inside look at our signage fabrication process!



First, we need to know what your sign needs to accomplish. Does your sign need to be seen from miles away? Do you want to take advantage of an LED screen? Questions like these will help our design team start to get ideas going for you. The team will go over your colors, type choices, and any existing logos you might have to determine the content of your sign.

Then, we’ll come out to your business and do a site audit. This will let us know exactly what kind of space we have to work with, how high we can build, and what our options are for powering your sign. It’ll also give us a jump start on the permitting process.


Fabrication 1

Often, you’ll need to hire a graphic designer for your images and a separate company to actually construct your signage.

Not at National Signs.

Once your design is finalized, our fabrication experts go to work. They use the latest technologies such as laser engravers and computerized cutting machines in addition to old-fashioned welding and sandblasting.

They’ll make sure your sign is energy efficient, sturdy, and will keep its colors even after long exposure to the elements.



Now that all of the pieces of your sign have come together, it’s time to install. Our construction team will have you up and running quickly and safely. We maintain strict rules about state and local regulations, OSHA compliance, and professionalism on the job.

Once installed, your signage will be able to stand the test of time so you can start seeing a return on your investment. Fair warning: you’re going to have a lot more business now that your advertising game is strong!

Service & Maintenance

Inevitably, your sign will need some attention. Even with long-lasting LED technology, lights will need to be replaced. Over time, you may decide your sign could use a facelift, or you’ll need to repair some storm damage.

Fortunately, National Signs doesn’t stop serving you once the installation is complete. Our service and maintenance teams will keep your signage looking as good as the day you got it. You’ll even get a 5-year warranty that covers all parts, all labor, and all signs.
