Why should I use your company?

When you entrust your order with Vital Signs, you’ll be working with some of the most qualified and dedicated professionals in the sign industry.  We understand that the products you receive from us will be the face of your business and we will work with you to create the signs and graphics you need in a timely manner.  Our team is committed to creating a pleasant experience in order to build long-term relationships with all of our customers. 

Do you have a pricelist?

Unfortunately, due to the changing prices of materials, and the varying job types, we do not keep a static price list. Please contact a sales representative for more information.

What file formats work best?

Vector artwork (ai,eps) works best for us and will provide you with the best quality output, however we can convert bitmaps to vector artwork for an additional fee. For digital printing, 300+ dpi always works best, but large prints still look very good at even 100 dpi.

What is the life expectancy of your digital prints?

Un-laminated, printed vinyl graphics will last about 1-2 years as they have no abrasion or UV protection. Lamination can extend that up to 5-6 years because it is adding both UV protection as well as abrasion resistance.

Will vinyl graphics affect the paint on my vehicle?

As long as your paint has cured at least 30 days after fresh paint, the vinyl will not harm the vehicle's painted surfaces. We use only high quality vinyl materials to ensure this. Certain vinyl materials, such as carbon fiber, metallic, reflective, or chrome, have stronger adhesives, and can be difficult to remove. Also leaving the vinyl graphics on the vehicle longer than the expected life can cause them to be harder to remove.

How much does a vehicle wrap cost?

Generally the cost for a partial wrap can run from $500-$2500.  A full wrap can run from $2500-$5500.  Every wrap is custom designed, so discussing it with a sales representative will help you get a better understanding of what it will cost to wrap your vehicle.

What is the normal turnaround on a sign?

On average, typical turnaround time can be from 2 to 5 days. Large format printing can take longer for ink drying time, and lamination processes. We can always accommodate same day or next day jobs, but they will have a rush fee added to the cost.

Do you give free proofs with your estimates?

Yes, we will e-mail a proof of the design layout for you to sign off on before we begin the production stage of your order.  We require your signed copy of the proof to make sure that you’re getting exactly what you ordered from us.

Do you deliver?

Yes, we offer delivery service and installation on all our signs. Please discuss the details of the services you will require with our sales representatives.

What are your payment terms?

We accept checks, Visa, Mastercard & American Express.  On large orders, a deposit may be required.  Payment is due upon completion of the order, unless prior arrangements have been made.

Can you come to my place of business to give me an estimate?

Yes, our sales representative would be happy to meet you on site to discuss the details of your order. 

Are your products environmentally friendly?

Our large format printer uses ECO-Sol inks, which is virtually odorless and does not require any special ventilation system or environmental equipment. Vital Signs is continually making steps towards preserving the environment including:

  • Using products that are recycled or recyclable (i.e. printer paper, old signs, material scraps)
  • Disposing of hazardous materials properly
  • Purchasing products in bulk with minimum packaging, thereby reducing waste
  • Recycling toner cartridges through manufacturers
  • Turning off unused equipment during nights and weekends
What is an LED?

An LED (light emitting diode) is an efficient, super bright alternative to traditional incandescent light bulbs. LED's are plastic capsules containing a specific chemical compound on a microscopic wafer that emits light when subjected to an electrical current. When red, green and blue LED's are clustered together and shine at their full brightness, the combined light emission appears white to the human eye. Varying the intensity of the three colors creates all other colors/shades.
