Billing and Account Information


  • Do you offer any sizes and shapes other than those listed on the website?

    We offer two sizes: 18" x 24" and 12" x 18".

  • What size is the font on the sign?

    The size of the text will depend on your font and size choices. The printed sign will be exactly proportional to your design proof. For example, if your sign is 6" high and your lettering occupies about 2/3 of the height, then your lettering is about 4" tall.

  • May I choose the type of material my design is printed on?

    We offer corrugated plastic and aluminum.


    Corrugated plastic is a lightweight plastic produced like corrugated cardboard, except corrugated plastic is white and durable outdoors. Our corrugated plastic is 1/8" thick, and they are a great option for an inexpensive, quality yard sign or outdoor advertisement.

    Aluminum is the most durable and longest lasting type of yard or window sign. This product has the highest quality appearance and works great outdoors or indoors. Our aluminum signs (.040 quality aluminum) come standard with rounded corners for safety and a professional appearance. We also offer a selection of the most popular metal frames which easily match up with our frame panels by size.

  • What colors do you have available?

    The colors that we currently offer are: white, gray, black, navy, blue, teal, green, yellow, brick, khaki, red, sky blue, orange and purple.

    Note: Additional colors may be available for your own uploaded images.

  • Will the printed product look exactly like the design proof displayed on my monitor?

    Due to different monitor calibrations, some printed colors may not always match the colors displayed on your computer monitor.

  • If I have a double-sided sign, how do I modify the sign so that the arrows are pointing in the same direction?

    We do it for you. Double-sided signs with arrows will automatically adjust so that the arrows point people in the same direction when viewed from either side.

  • Does my sign order come with wire stakes or frames?

    Wire stakes or frames need to be added to your order and are not automatically included in the order.

  • Placing An Order
  • How do I know that you received my order, and how do I obtain a receipt?

    Once you have submitted your order, an order confirmation containing your final order total, link to shipment status, billing, design proof, contact and shipment information will be emailed to you.

  • What if I didn't receive my order confirmation?

    If you haven't received your order confirmation email, please check your junk email folder or spam filter.

  • May I make a correction to my order after it has been submitted?

    Since most orders are transmitted to our production staff immediately upon submission, it is generally impossible to make corrections or changes to the design submitted for printing. If you have just placed your order, and want to check if changing it is possible, please contact customer service immediately via 1-866-661-9239.

  • What is your cancellation policy?

    You can find our cancellation policy in our Terms of Sale.

Customizing Your Sign

  • What kind of image should I use for a photograph?

    If you're using a photograph, then you should use a good resolution JPG image. Try to find the highest quality image with a file size less than 20 Megabytes (20 MB).

  • What kind of image should I use for a logo or clipart?

    To use a logo, or some type image created by a graphics professional from solid lines and colors (specifically called 'vector art'), then EPS is the best choice. By using an EPS file in your design, you can retain the sharp lines in your original image, even if the file size you use is very small. If you do not have access to an EPS file, then GIF or PNG file formats will provide you with the next best print quality. Again, try to find the highest quality image with a file size less than 20 Megabytes (20 Mb).
