What is an EPS File? And why is this type of file needed?
Designers and Signwriters use EPS files. Vector art is simple data allowing recreation of geometric shapes, and therefore can be resized to any desired dimension and still retain sharp edges and solid fills. (This is unlike JPG, TIF, PNG, BMP and other formats which contain a fixed matrix of dots/pixels that eventually become blocky and fuzzy when enlarged beyond the intended purpose ... especially noted by jagged edges on curves.)
Why are signs so expensive?
Our signs are custom made. Your sign will be hand crafted by our qualified tradesmen. Our designers create concepts that take hours to create
Signage should not be considered a cost but instead an investment that helps build your business and increase your livelihood. Signage is worth investing in as it tells people who you are and what you do, your signage needs to convey that message so it is worth investing the time in designing and creating your signage.

For urgent projects requiring faster turnaround times a 5% surcharge will be applied. This is to cover the costs of priortising your project ahead of others as extra time needs to be allocated to rescheduling our production line as well as to cover extra costs for overtime that may be required to ensure your project is delivered on time.
