Sign Options from ShieldCo

When you work with ShieldCo for your custom sign, the opportunities are endless. We can use steel, brass, copper, coreten, or our company wide favorite, aluminum. You can choose from hundreds of colors, or we can pick the colors that match your logo. We can create flat signs, or our favorite ones, 3D signs with multiple layers.

Through the thousands of signs that we've created, we have identified five main categories that most signs fall under. Browse through the following options to help you determine the best fit for your business needs:

#1) single layer
#2) single layer with Back Panel (2 layers)
#3) multi layer - our signature style
#4) Individual lettering
#5) multi layer + Individual lettering

 

Option 1 - Single layer

This option cuts out all lettering to expose the wall behind the sign. It’s a simple design but still impactful. We can use our
typical french cleat on the back of the sign for easy installation or we can use stainless steel standoffs if required. If we add framework
to the back of the sign, we can add custom lighting.

OPTION 2 - Single layer with back panel

Similar to option #1, this version adds a panel behind the sign to provide added contrast. It adds depth and visual interest to the sign, and is the first true step into the “3D” realm. The front layers cast shadows on the back panel bringing the sign to life. As with all our signs, you can add custom lighting for even greater impact.

Option 3 - multi layer
Our Signature Style

This is the type of sign you need when looking to make a great first impression. We strive to create the highest quality signage in order to match the caliber of your company’s products and services.

This sign features your logo and/or lettering precisely cutout and layered off of the back panel to give depth and texture. We take the time to analyze your logo and understand how to transform it into a piece of art.

Our customers love these signs because every part is attached to one backer panel, making it extremely easy to hang. Installation can take as little as 10 minutes.

Option 4 - Individual lettering

A popular option for when your wall color or texture contributes to the overall aesthetic of your signage.

This type of sign separates each part of your logo to be hung as individual pieces. We provide a foolproof template to drill each individual hole with precision. The end result is a sleek professional sign.

Option 5 - multi layer + individual lettering combo

Sometimes a blend of these two options creates the best impact.

Individual lettering mounted to your wall plus our signature layered logo adds an artistic element that really stands out.

The installation process is made easy by providing the template for placement of each hole to be drilled and ready to mount multi layer logo. This ensures a foolproof installation that leaves you with a polished look to match your company standards.

Lighted Sign Options

Our lit signs are made to look exactly the same as our other signature pieces until you turn on the controller, and amp up the impact. Illuminated sign choices fall under a couple of categories:

#1 Negative cut-out

#2 Signature 3D style with lighting

#3 Box style with 3D lettering or logo

#1 Negative cut-out - simple design that goes great if you have an accent wall behind it to compliment the sign and lighting. 

#2 Signature 3D style with lighting - Our 3D style with lighting attached to the back of various layers, by far our most popular lighted sign.

#3 Box style with 3D Lettering or Logo - Similar to our Signature style, with the difference being that the sides don't have any light coming out, like the name suggests it's boxed in. 


SIGNS THAT MAKE A POWERFUL STATEMENT TO YOUR CUSTOMERS.
Powder coated metal and layered to make the sign three dimensional, our commercial signage is built to impress and last forever.

Commercial Signage

Every office location needs signage to indicate their presence. Interior custom metal signage is as important as exterior signage. Study after study have been conducted showing how much first impressions affect someone's perspective of a location. We are here to ensure your customers are impressed with the quality of your company from the moment they see your sign.

Custom metal corporate signage for the Brooklyn Nets

Custom metal corporate signage for the Brooklyn Nets

BROOKLYN NETS, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK

When the Brooklyn Nets contacted us late on a Friday in February of 2016, they said that they loved our custom metal signage and that they needed two new signs for their practice facility in Brooklyn, NY in a little less than two weeks. We worked with the manager at the Nets, creating mockups for their review over the weekend, and sealed the deal the following Monday. We delivered on time and hung the commercial signage for their opening ceremony.

PEPSICO, DENVER, COLORADO

Pepsi was renovating their office space in Denver, Colorado and wanted new custom metal signage that would update the space to make it look modern and fresh. On the first call with the facilities manager we presented 3D models of our vision of the signs which were perfectly inline with what the company was looking for. We worked diligently with our supplier of powder coats to find the perfect color match for the Pepsi brand and then we started production. We laser cut, powder coated, assembled and shipped the signage for Pepsi to their office. Within two hours of receiving the package the new signage was flawlessly installed on their wall.

Signage for Concrete General in the Washington DC Metro Area

CONCRETE GENERAL - GAITHERSBURG, MD

The client had a great looking logo that they wanted to update to something more impressive. After working directly with the client on developing the logo, the client had the suggestion of putting ball peen hammered copper as the backer for the custom metal signage. This was the perfect suggestion! The hammered copper is unique and regal and will be a focal point of the office for years to come. This sign is the truly perfect entry way sign for an office or commercial building.
