Express Signs

You’re busy, and many things go into the design and project management of signage from design to installation:

  1. Designing artwork,
  2. Doing site surveys,
  3. Getting quotes,
  4. Producing signs,
  5.  Acquiring permits, and
  6. Installing signs.
That’s why we have a diverse team equipped with the skills needed for your project. Here’s how we can help:


Have an idea but not sure how to make it? Unsure how to use design software like Adobe Illustrator? Have an old logo you need spruced up? No worries—we’ve got you covered! We can assist the creation of your artwork in the following ways:

Design Now feature: Our free-to-use web designer lets you custom-make your own artwork. It’s simpler than using Adobe products and is ideal for modest designs.

Custom templates: We may have a pre-made design you can customize; find it while using the designer tool! Most aspects of our templates are editable.

Graphic designer services: Request design services along with your quote and provide detailed information of your project. We will work with you to ensure complete satisfaction in the design we create!

Upload your own artwork: When you place an order, send your artwork and we’ll check it for print readiness.

Regardless of which route you choose, we’ll proof all files to you, ensuring we’ve correctly received and understood your design. We put your project into production once we have approved proofs.


Our website lets you choose a product, input preferences such as size and add-ons, and generate a price. Then, you can put the item in your cart and continue to shop or checkout when you are ready.

Some projects, however, require more in-depth pricing than what our website currently provides. These projects include channel letter signs, wall and monument signs, vehicle and window graphics, among other services. Furthermore, quote pricing will include materials, labor, and permit costs as applicable. Here’s how to make a custom quote in three steps:

  1. Call us, send us an email, or submit an inquiry form on our contact page to begin a conversation.
  2. Tell us what you’re looking for. We’ll get back to you as soon as possible with a quote review request email.
  3. Approve the quote through the linked webpage or request changes.

Once the quote is approved, we’ll turn it into a sales order and begin the pre-production steps of your project. This step includes design, proofing, and prepayment as needed.


Additionally, we can assist your design and project management needs in cases of sign permitting. Some signs require permits to remain compliant with municipal zoning ordinances. Such projects include monument or pylon signs, wall sign cabinets, or electrical to illuminate a sign cabinet, and so forth. We can apply for a permit on your behalf, research local permit requirements, and coordinate with appropriate municipalities.

Please note: Before we can install signs that require permits, we must have a permit on record.


Lastly, we have manufactured and installed the signage for entire apartment complexes, storage facilities, and even dental clinics. Extensive projects like these need extensive information, from quantities to dimensions to placements.

Our services don’t end with design and project management. Call us–we don’t bite!
