The Process

1) Inquiry
2) Quoting
3) 2D and 3D Mockups
4) Deposit Payment and Fabrication
5) Final pictures and Final Payment
6) Shipping

You have an idea in your head, but how can you be sure what is in your head is going to be what we make for you? What is the sign going to cost and how long is it going to take? What about installation? Check out the following process that we use for every sign to help you understand our process that has earned us all 5 star reviews. 

1) The Inquiry

Fill out the inquiry form here - www.shieldcoart.com/free-quote

You can provide as many or as few details as you want. The more information you are able to provide, the less information we will have to collect from you later and we will be able to provide you with a more accurate quote. 

The most important items to provide in your inquiry, after your contact information, are an image of your logo, an image of where the sign is to go, the expected size you'd like, and whether you'd like lighting or not.

2) The Quote

If you have provided a logo, we will give our best shot at quoting your project. However, before we officially quote the project we would love to have a conversation with you on the phone to talk about the specifics of the project. We've learned that in almost every situation, there are particular requirements that are best uncovered through an informal conversation with one of our sales members. If you are unable to talk on the phone, we can certainly work with you via email, but we prefer to make the individual connection with each of our clients. 

3) 2D and 3D Mockup

If the price we quote is within your budget, and you are interested in moving forward, we will make you a 2D mockup to show you how the sign is going to look. If after the 2D mockup you are still interested, we would be glad to make you a free 3D mockup as well. We look at this as a professional head nod. There isn't any commitment on your part to purchase the sign after the 3D mokcup, but we hope that if what we've quoted is outside of your budget, you won't ask us to make the 3D mockup for you, as there are costs associated with it. 

2D Mockup

In the 2D mockup we can easily show dimensions and the layout and colors of the sign. 

3D Mockups

In the 3D mokups, we want to focus your attention on the depth of the sign and the shadows that the parts cast on each other. Click on the right hand side of the photo to see different angles of the sign.
