Consultation, collaboration, and trust.


There is no signage project that our creative and skilled team of designers, craftsmen, and technicians will not take on. Combined with years of collective experience and skill, we can guarantee success for your signage project by following a time-tested process that ensures that our signage products and services meet, or exceed, your expectations. During this consultative process, we work closely with you to determine your needs, examine your criteria, and work to your budget.

This tried and true process also allows us to monitor and manage every step of your project, and to keep communications open in order to avoid costly mistakes and omissions. This ensures a smooth and enjoyable working experience with our clients, builds on collaboration and trust, and results in a quality product, and your satisfaction guaranteed. 




Finding the right fit.


To help you select the signage that will most clearly communicate your brand, and your business, New Century Signs will visit your site and speak with you in order to understand the nature of your business, what type of signage you envision, your communication goals, and exactly how the signage needs to be integrated into your site. For example, if you are located in a heritage building, or district, we may recommend a traditional wood carved, heritage look and feel for your signage. If your business is a bar or restaurant, we might suggest a colourful neon or clean backlit sign solution to enhance your site. 

Our consultative approach.

New Century Signs will assess your site, which includes looking at the architecture and overall site context. How will a sign will best fit into the picture?

The next step is to typically conduct a site survey – we document your site with digital photos and accurate measurements. This includes assessing your view lines in order to see where the sign should be located according to existing vehicular and pedestrian views, keeping in mind audience impact in terms of distance, visibility and legibility.

Our staff can carry out research for any necessary signage permits. Our knowledgeable and experienced team will do all the work for you to ensure there is no uncertainty, or doubt, as to what type of signage, and structure, you can have and where it can go. 

We will also help you to select the best materials for quality, style, durability and cost effectiveness. 

We provide a sample review, which includes a presentation of material swatches, color codes and product samples for you to look at and select from.


Budget conscious solutions.


As highly experienced project managers, we will budget, plan and monitor your project in order to seek the optimum balance between cost, quality and your time requirements. Cost engineering is all about balance, and looking at your desired outcomes, and the options that best help you meet them. We can use various methods, mediums and materials on a budget conscious level, that can imitate an array of woods, metals, and through adding and subtracting options we can come to the perfect sign solution where you don’t need to compromise quality for budget.




Visualizing the project.


During the concept design phase, you will be able to see exactly how your sign will look on site. We will supply you with furnished proofs and renderings of the signage super imposed on its intended location. Seeing the designed sign super-imposed on its intended location(s), will ensure that your signage can be viewed and read easily, and is impactful to your audience on every level. This is an important step in our design process, prior to fabrication, and is the perfect time to go over the small details, so there are no surprises. You can catch spelling errors, check contact details and text size, as well as colours so we can make any final adjustments if required.
