Sign Designing Manufacturing and Installing Services in Sydney

Consultation

Northside Signs has over 20 years experience in the signage industry.  We can help with the development of concepts or the creation of a concept from next to nothing. Whether you know exactly what you want or you don’t – we can help you get a great result.

We are happy to consult you about your signage needs in person or via phone and/or email.

Effective signage is all about asking yourself some basic questions:

How much space do you have available?
Does the sign attract your attention?
Is the sign clear?
Does it target/appeal to those you want to read it?
Is all the information supplied, relevant?
How much time does a passer-by have to view it?
Does it brand you?
How long will it be used for?
How will it be used/portability/transportability?
Is it cost effective?

Recomendations

We don’t just make signs. 

In order to make our recommendations, we will consider:

  • the surrounding environment
  • distance required for readability
  • the amount and type of information required
  • any corporate image/colours to be included
  • time available for viewers to read and interpret information
  • the target demographics
  • the life expectancy of the signage
  • the client’s budget
  • the best product type for the job

Site inspections are sometimes necessary in order to determine the best product to use, or determine the best colours to use in order to standout if there is considerable competition for attention (clutter). They are also good for determining the best means of attachment and/or the best location for the signage.

Design/Artwork

Our skill and experience ensures that you get the best possible quality in layout for your sign. We can undertake all facets of the design process from simple text or graphic work to supervision of larger graphic design projects. All artwork is sent to clients for proofing before manufacture.

Your artwork or ours, it does not matter. If provided in the appropriate format * we can prepare your signage without any artwork charges. Simple artwork for smaller jobs may be covered under our minimum charge policy.

*All artwork provided to us for use in your signage, needs to be in Illustrator  .ai or .eps files. All text must be converted to curves/outlines. All colour critical files must be in CMYK format, annotated with PMS references. Hi resolution .jpeg .jpg or bitmap files are acceptable only where the file is production ready for printing. They are useable where contour cutting is required. If you are not able to provide artwork in an acceptable format, we will be able to reproduce the artwork at our standard rates.

Manufacture

Northside Signs makes a wide range of signage, using various substrates depending on the sign’s use and other environmental considerations. We produce contour cut vinyls with a Roland Camm Pro 1 plotter and a Gerber Edge 2 for printing dye sublimation full colour stickers and labels. Our professional and dedicated attitude to the manufacturing process ensures your signs are of the highest quality.
