Areas to reduce costs
Sign panel: We offer the budget-friendly InterpreTUFF, which has 5 year in-frame warranty and will save you nearly half the fees of dHPL.
Framing: Although many of our mounts have custom fitted pedestals, we do manufacture the frame alone with you providing your own wooden posts. We can advise you on styles specific to your region and budget.
Art Prep: This fee is based on your supplied references for our use in designing your panel. Pricing can be kept to a minimum on multiple signs if you have similar design elements for every panel. If you have photo intense panels, you can reduce costs by doing your own photo research and providing high quality digital images vs photo scans that may need to be retouched or 'dusted'.
Shipping and handling: Our pack and ship fees are based on current UPS Ground and UPS Freight rates. Rates are based on the size of the package and your location. If you are within driving distance to our facility, you are welcome to pick up your panels and frames.
