Welcome to Sign Fab!


    Policies / Warranty

    This page spells out exactly what we expect from our customers and what our customers can expect from us.


    Prices are quoted based on current market value of materials contained.  Our pricing is reviewed periodically so that we may provide you with the most competitive price possible.  Project quotes are effective for 30 days from date on quotation.  It is recommended that you have your project requoted if it expires.  Quoted price may be subject to change if final artwork is different than quoted artwork. Quoted prices are not guaranteed past the quote expiration date.


    Design/Edit Software: Omega, Artpath, Enroute, Logixx, Wasatch, CorelDraw, CorelPhoto, Adobe, OCR Vector,  LEDWizard.  These programs provide us the graphic ability to edit or design your project with ease.  We are most compatible with these vector graphic extensions:  Adobe Illustrator .ai,  Encapsulated Post Script .eps, Omega .plt, and Corel .cdr.  Vector art that is not “Clean” or production ready must be cleaned and modified prior to production. (Artwork must not have any unnecessary control points and must have smooth edges to be considered “Clean”.)  Artwork that needs modifications to be production ready will be adjusted and sent to customers for final approval.  We charge for projects that take longer than one hour to finalize the artwork.  An additional charge of $40 per hour will be accessed for time beyond the one hour included in your proposal.  Most projects do not exceed one hour for artwork modifications.  Pixel formats (such as .jpg, and .bmp) usually can be converted to vector art.  There is an additional charge of $40 per hour for vectorizing.  This price is subject to change without notice.


    All remote mounted projects are shipped with installation patterns.  These patterns are built into the cost of every project and do not require an additional charge.  You will receive one pattern per set of letters or logos.  Additional patterns are charged per linear foot.  Call our office for updated pricing.

    Return Policy

    Sign Fab does not accept returns.  All channel letter products are manufactured to customer specifications.  Sign Fab supplies proof drawings for your customers’ final approval.  Products do not begin production until you have reviewed, approved and signed the shop drawing.  Once signature is received the product begins production and cannot be changed without incurring additional cost.  All sales are final and no returns will be accepted.

    Manufacturing Errors

    Sign Fab will correct all products that have production errors.  It is our intent to supply an error-free product.  Problems with colors, sizes, or missing parts should be reported immediately.  These errors will be corrected with as little inconvenience to you as possible.
