Benefits of Using A Local Sign Shop

At, we’re proud to be your source for professional sign design, and we can help you design signs of all types, including business, parking, political, yard, magnetic and funny signs.

When you choose us, we’ll work with a local sign shop in your area to produce your final project. You may wonder, though, why you would want to go this route instead of just ordering your sign and having it manufactured by an online vendor.

Today, we’d like to take a few minutes to clear up some of the confusion and share some of the many benefits of choosing a local sign shop.

Benefits of Choosing a Local Sign Shop

Local Shops BudgetsCost

People often turn to the Internet to save a few dollars, but which option truly costs more? Rather than solely focusing on the overall cost of the project, consider this:

When you submit to an online printer, your file must be perfect. There’s likely no one who will check for errors or make sure that the file is formatted properly. Your sign will be printed exactly as submitted, and if there’s a problem, you could end up paying for a useless sign.

A local sign shop, on the other hand, will work with you to make sure everything is just right before printing the final product. This means you’re much less likely to end up with an unsatisfactory product due to a problem with the file.


Most online print companies don’t have in-house experts with years of print and sign making experience. They may know how to use the equipment, but they don’t have the expertise necessary to allow them to help customers with complicated projects or to find solutions to unique problems.

Local sign shops generally are staffed by people with decades of experience and a true passion for sign making. They offer expert guidance and assistance throughout the project to ensure customer satisfaction.

Customer Service

Even the best online customer service doesn’t compare to the customer service of a local sign shop. Working with a local sign shop means talking to real people who are committed to ensuring customer satisfaction from start to finish.


An online sign shop may be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but there’s no telling when they’ll actually print and ship your order. And if the shop is located on the opposite of the country, delays during shipment could make it take significantly longer for your product to reach you.

Local sign shops strive to stick to tight deadlines and deliver products when their customers need them. And if your sign is printed on the other side of town rather than the other side of the country, the problem of shipping labels is delayed.
