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 hundreds (thousands??) of signs that we've created we have identified four main categories of signs that most signs fall under. They are as follows:

 

#1) Negative Cut-out (1 layer)
#2) Negative Cut-out with Back Panel (2 layers)
#3) 3D, layered sign, with backer (multiple layers)
#4) Individual lettering (usually 1 layer)
#5) Individual lettering plus 3d logo (multiple layers)

 

#1) Negative Cut-out (1 layer) (starting at $500) 

This option leaves a void where the lettering/logo would be, showing the wall behind it. We can use our typical french cleat on the back for hanging the sign, or we can use stainless steel standoffs. If we add a framework to the back of the sign, we can also add lighting. 

#1 Single Layer.JPG

#2) Negative Cut-out with Back Panel (2 layers) (starting at $650) 
 

This option is similar to option #2, but with a back panel behind the negative cut-out panel. This adds depth to the sign and is the first step into the "3D" realm. Lighting is possible with this sign. 

 

#3) 3D, layered sign, with backer (multiple layers) (starting at $1100) 
 

This option would have your logo and/or lettering cut out separately and raised off of the surface of a back panel with spacers, giving your logo depth and texture. This is what we specialize in and what separates us from other companies. We are able to produce these types of signs to an extremely high caliber because of our machinery and our process. Also, we love selling these signs because since every part of the sign is attached to the backer, the sign is extremely easy to hang - can take as little as 10 minutes. Lighting is possible with this sign. 

 

#4) Individual lettering (usually 1 layer) (starting at $600) 
 

With this option, we would cut your logo into individual pieces that would have threaded studs extending from the back. We would provide you with a template for you to mount on your wall, drill each individual hole, and install your sign with a foolproof method ensuring your logo looks excellent on your wall. This is very popular when the wall color or texture is something you want to showcase in addition to the sign. 

 

#5) Individual lettering plus 3D logo (multiple layers) (starting at $1500) 
 

The best of both worlds - the individual letters look great and professional on your wall and the 3D logo adds a great artistic effect. The lettering, or parts, would be individually mounted on the wall, with threaded studs and spacers that extend from the back of the part. The logo would have a french cleat mounted on the back. We would provide you with a template for you to mount on your wall, drill each individual hole, and install your sign with a full proof method ensuring your logo looks excellent on your wall.

Lighted Sign Options

We have constructed many lighted signs that are made in our signature style, the signs are made to look exactly the same as our other signature pieces until you turn on the controller, and make the sign  be seen in a whole new light.The signs we have done fall in 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. 

 

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. A great way to ensure their first impression is positive is to adorn your space with beautiful custom metal commercial signage. 

 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

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 i think is the truly perfect entry way sign for an office or commercial building. 

 

Custom Design

 

Each "Shield" 3D Custom Metal Signage piece starts with a custom design.  Just send us your logo or design and your desired size and we will create a 3D rendering of your project for your approval.  If you don’t have a logo or design yet, thats ok, we can help you design one.

Here is an example of what we created for the Paradise Bay Resort in Hawaii.
