Overloaded with design work? Let Visual Sign Design make your life a lot easier.
Full Service Sign Shops
Knowing the demands of a Full-Service Sign Shop, VSD can help you increase your productivity. Not only can we supply you with the proofs (with your company template) for your client, we can also supply you with production ready art files. We can set up files for the Router, Laser, Printing, Polymer, Vinyl and more (you will need to request this). Just let us know what equipment you will be using, it limitations, and what format you would like the files in.
Other Sign Shops
Need help with larger projects like Monument Signs, Channel Letters and Wayfinding Packages? Having the knowledge of working in a Full-Service Sign Shop will allow VSD to help you with these larger projects. Not only will we help you with the design for proofs (using your company template) we will also supply you with “files to scale / production ready files” if needed (you will need to request this). Also, this will allow you to take our drawings and get quotes from Full-Service Sign Companies for better pricing.
Software & Files
- Software used: CorelDRAW, Photoshop, Illustrator
- Proofs – PDF Format (jpg if requested)
- Production Files – PDF, eps, ai. Format
Note: We can also send files in CorelDRAW format, just let us know what version you need it in.
VSD charges by the project, and base the price on an hourly rate of $40.
Note: If you have a budget you need to stay within, please inform us before we start the project so we can work accordingly.

VSD strive to turn projects around as quickly as possible. We aim for 1 – 2 days for simple projects and 3 – 4 days for more complex projects. Wayfinding Projects are based on the size of the project. VSD will give you an ETA on these projects.
