Questions about sign material? You're off to a good start

If you’re about to invest in a sign, big or small, make sure your first questions aren’t about pricing options, but about which materials are available to you, and which will best suit your needs.  It’s important not to walk into a shop with a budget that’s incapable of providing you with a quality preference.  For example, if you’re set on utilizing corrugated plastic because of its inexpensive quality, you must also accept it wont be holding up to harsh or prolonged weather conditions.  Typically, corruplast is used as short-term signage, or for indoor use.  If what you require is a ‘by-the-roadside’ attention grabber, expect to spend more or be disappointed in your sign’s lifespan.  If you spend your money right the first time, in the end you’ll save… by making more.


Take the time to consider what it is your marketing tool is expected to accomplish, and ponder its circumstances.  Will your purchase be lengthily exposed to sunlight?  Will it be left in severe below freezing temperatures, or is your sign in a location that’s typically windy?  Speedpro is well equipped to give you exactly what it is you need, as long as we know exactly what it is you need.  And that doesn’t mean we expect you to know the names of the materials we carry, merely to know, and share with us, what it is you expect of your buy.


To give you a little insight, the next few posts will be a rundown of our shop’s top selling sign products and their recommended uses.  At any time you can contact us at the shop and we’ll be happy to help you make a professional product choice.  Samples can be provided, along with a smile and a cup of hot coffee too!
