Custom Signs In Denver
Some of the best custom signs in Denver. They are easily visible from a distance and in any lighting. Light box signs are a great way to make your message stand out, day or night. Our signs are constructed from heavy grade aluminum and can be sized to meet your specific needs. The lighting components are internal and protected from the elements, making light box signs perfect for outdoor applications. The sign face can be made from either acrylic or lexan, allowing the light shine through brightly and call attention to your business or organization.
One decision for you to make will be whether to use acrylic or lexan for your sign face. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. Though acrylic, or Plexiglas, cracks easier, it is also shinier, less expensive, and it has better transparency and clarity than Lexan. Two common uses for acrylic are fish tanks and hockey rink glass. Lexan, a GE brand name for a type of poly-carbonate, is more flexible and impact resistant (it is 200x stronger than untempered glass), but it is easier to scratch. It is also more expensive.
Ultimately, the decision on which material is right for your sign will come down to a number of factors, including but not limited to appearance, durability, and cost. One of our experienced project managers can help you make the right choice for your project.
In Stanley Kubrick’s classic film “2001: A Space Odyssey,” a clan of apes went . . . well . . . bananas when a stone monolith appeared outside of their cave. Capture a piece of that primal excitement with your very own monolith sign. There is something regal and eye-catching about a free-standing monolith. It sraws your eye, while exemplifying professionalism. Even a blank monolith would attract the attention of passers-by. Imagine one with your company name!
The customization options for monolith signs, also called monument signs and totem pole signs, are many. They can be made in a wide range of sizes, colors, and shapes and out of a variety of materials. They can be lighted from within, or by external spotlights. The lettering and design can be LED, neon, channel letter, or printed directly on the sign material.
While monolith signs are commonly used to make a bold statement outside the office building of a single company, they are also a professional and space-efficient way to announce the presence of multiple companies. A well-designed monolith sign outside of an office park or strip mall can clearly and effectively give visibility to every tenant

”Craftsmanship” is a word that often comes to mind when considering routed signs. The old fashioned hand-carved look of a routed or sandblasted sign calls to mind a bygone era. A well made routed sign can set the perfect tone for your customer before they even walk in the door.
Traditional routed signs are carved from wood. While wood is still an option, modern routed signs can be made from a variety of materials including PVC plastic, HDU (a high density foam), acrylic, and even metal. Signs made from these alternate materials can often be designed and produced to replicate the look of wood. They also provide design options that are not available with wooden routed signs. HDU routed signs, for example, are often carved to produce a faux stone finish.
If you are interested in a routed sign, Denver Print Company can consult with you on your project to help find the best material for your sign. HDU can be used to produce a thicker sign, up to 12 inches, but wood is a stronger material for longer, flatter signs. Weather resistance is something to consider as well. Wood signs can warp or crack in extreme temperature and moisture situations, whereas HDU is engineered to be 100% weather proof.

When it comes to retail storefront signage, there are few better choices than the ubiquitous channel letter sign. You have seen them everywhere, from Subway to Safeway. There is a reason that they are so popular. Each letter, or group of letters in some cases, is individually constructed and illuminated from within. When installed on a contrasting wall surface (be it brick, stone, or wood) the result is a professional and highly visible sign.
The flexibility of design options is another reason that channel letter signs have become so popular. Virtually any font or design can be converted into a fantastic looking channel letter sign.
The illumination options are many as well. In the past, neon was the light of choice for channel letter builders. Today, LED lights are the preferred option. LED lighting offers many advantages when it comes to channel lettering. They are brighter, less expensive, and THEY DON’T BURN OUT!. We’ve all seen channel letter signs with a letter or two un-illuminated while the rest of the sign remains lit. This is a common problem for neon-lit signs. It appears unprofessional and can be costly to fix. LED illumination puts these problems in the past. When connected to a consistent power source, LED bulbs will burn virtually forever.
The Denver Print Company can turn any company logo or wordmark into a fantastic and professional looking sign. If you don’t have a design in mind, our experienced graphic design team can help you with that too. Contact us today!
Often categorized with light box signs and often confused for channel letter signs, true backlit signs have many of their own unique qualities. Unlike channel letter signage, which is lit from within, backlit signage is, as the name suggests, lit from behind the design. The light splashes onto the design background or directly onto the wall on which the sign is mounted. The result is an attractive, sophisticated, and modern looking sign.
Though they can be used in many of the same applications, backlit signs are not as popular as channel letter signs. For this reason, a backlit sign may help your business stand out amongst the competition. This is particularly true when it comes to attracting customers at night. In the dark, backlit signs truly shine!
Backlit signs are sophisticated enough in appearance, that another popular use for them is as lobby signs. A well-designed backlit sign on the reception desk of your office can set an air sophistication and professionalism that no other sign can match.
