in Mar 01, 2023

Our catalog, The SIGN Guide 2023 is out now! This is our 31st year in business as Sign Fab! If you are interested in knowing more about our facilities and our business visit our YouTube page.

We have a lot of new updates and information in this year’s catalog!

This year we will take you through some exciting news, new products, everything

we manufacture including types of signs, color selections and specifications and LED information. This catalog is great to take on business meetings or when meeting potential customers.

On the first page, you’ll find our contact information as well as our standards of service. You’ll also find a QR code that will take you to our company video to help learn more about us!

On the same spread, we share upcoming news about our expansion plans and our new SF Design and Print Division and we advertise our Sales Kit. This is a wonderful addition to your sales presentation and it includes a full-size illuminated channel letter that you can order in two colors (Red & White), various trim and acrylic samples, color books to show your customer or keep as a reference for yourself and of course, the Sign Guide.  If you have any questions or would like to order a Sales Kit, call us today at (800) 544-6381 or e-mail us at [email protected].

After the introduction pages, are fourteen product pages.  These pages feature the specifications, color options and examples of signs. Below is an image of pages 7 and 8 in the catalog.

These pages are great for referencing when customers ask you questions.

These pages include:

☑ Standard sizes of acrylic

☑ Trim size

☑ Suggested aluminum thickness

☑ Return sizes

☑ Assembly options

☑ Color selections and more…

Hardware and mounting options are also listed. Color options at the bottom of the pages refer to the signs on that page or page spread. You won’t find the reverse channel colors on a standard channel letter page. This makes it easier to show some of the most common color options directly to your customers without having to flip through several pages to get to the larger color charts.  You can reference that color on the same page with the same type of sign.

After the main product pages, we have a section dedicated to mounting and electrical options.  This is a wonderful tool for seeing just exactly what mounting options we offer, and of course, if you ever have any custom questions that you can’t find an answer to in our catalog, feel free to contact us for more information. We will try our best to match or get the products you want/need.

­­­Next in the catalog are the color pages.  These are similar to the color selectors on the product pages, but they only focus on the colors of each type of product – from the acrylic to the raceway.  Colors we stock, plus additional colors are on these eight pages. You can show your customer a close representation of a color they have in mind by simply flipping through these pages.

Printing processes may cause misrepresentations of color swatches so keep that in mind. These are almost exact representations of the color swatches; however, for actual color references, simply call or e-mail us for a sample. We have a wide variety of colors that are great on most signs. 

The next sixteen pages are dedicated to our sign products! We have every category of what we offer and examples with descriptions that can be used as inspiration for your next project.

The sign on the right was pulled straight out of the catalog to show what information is provided on each example. We list everything from what type of sign it is, down to the color of the raceways. This is another great way to see how certain colors may look together or figure out what type of sign would best match the project at hand.


After the sign pages, comes our newest endeavor, the SF Design and Print Division. Our print division now offers Vinyl products, Banner Products, Rigid signs – cut or panel, Boxes & POP Up displays.

You can now get your graphics and signage all in one convenient place keeping costs to a minimum.

If you are interested, contact us at 800-544-6381 and ask about it!

The next two pages are dedicated to raceway and remote installations and our fabrication limitations.

Be sure to check this page out – it has very helpful information on raceway and remote mounting and how they differ. Next we give examples of how to place seams, faces on large signs and how they may be damaged due to installations and lining up seams on large mounting patterns.

Also included, is information on letter size and stroke width to help with artwork before sending it to us.

The next page is all about why you should choose a wholesale sign manufacturer like us for your custom projects. We can manufacture a wide variety of signs made from quality products, we have the expertise to back these products and help you every step of the way through the process and we have a large team to ensure that you meet your deadline. You won’t have to turn away clients that need orders filled immediately.

On the same page, is our new Installation Directory. This directory allows anyone to search for sign installers all across the country. It’s free of charge and can be used by anyone.

Search through our directory to find who installs in your area! Of course, if you can’t find one on the list, you can always call 800-544-6381 for more recommendations.

**Any installation business can request to be added on to the listing by emailing [email protected] and inquire about registering.

Next, we have our shipping, sign glossary and FAQ pages. These pages share information on where we deliver, what happens to damaged shipments, common definitions of some of the most popular terms in the sign industry and answers the most questions we get asked.

The next couple of pages is our sales information which includes more in-depth contact information, our Terms of Sale, artwork specifications, order procedure, and warranty terms. These are excellent to keep around and reference when necessary. 

This catalog is full of great information and new exciting ventures! Providing you with as much information as we can is our goal and if you can’t find the answer you’re looking for in our catalog, don’t hesitate to contact us.  We’re always a phone call or e-mail away.  We can’t wait to see what this year brings, thank you for your business!
