Upgrade Your Business With Replacement Sign Faces!

Does your business have a need for a different outdoor lighted sign than what you currently use? Is your company is changing its identity? Maybe your sign needs updated information?

Regardless of the reason, one thing is likely true… you don't want to replace the entire sign.

And that's where we come in.

The SignChef makes custom replacement sign faces that you can insert into your current lighted sign cabinet. Talk about a face lift!

Where to Start

TheSignChef has everything you need to whip up a Sign Face that meets your company's needs.

Let's get started by choosing the main ingredient for your custom sign. Since lighted signage is often found outdoors, it is important that the material you choose is durable. It must outlast wind, rain, or anything that Mother Nature (or anyone else in this big bad world) may throw at it.

Plastic sign faces come in varying levels of durability - we like to classify them in terms of:

  1. Good - Acrylic and Plexiglas
  2. Better - High Impact Acrysteel and Acrylite SG
  3. Best - And Super Impact Lexan, Lexan SG and Polycarbonate

The Acrylic and Plexiglas Plastic Family is a popular plastic choice for outdoor illuminated signage. Signs made from this material are cut to order from 4' x 8' sheets to fit your unique, individual needs. This material is also available in oversize sheets on special order.

Acrylic and Plexiglas plastic sheeting can crack or break under stress though. So if you need a high impact plastic sign material, or a sign larger than 4' x 8', we highly recommend plastic from the following groups:

The Acrysteel Plastic Family has 10 times the impact strength as standard Acrylic or Plexiglas Plastic. With enhanced break resistance, Acrysteel and Acrylite SG are among the most popular materials used for replacement sign faces.

The Lexan Plastic Family is an uncommonly strong sign material that has 50 times (yes, 50!) the impact strength as standard Acrylic or Plexiglas Plastic. Lexan is so tough, it's used as bullet proof glass!

*Acrysteel and Lexan Plastic sign materials are commonly used for larger signs, especially outdoor lighted signs. In "high risk" applications where breakage is more likely to occur, we recommend Lexan over any other plastic sign material.

The Three Styles of Lighted Sign Faces

  1. Completely Flat - The standard thickness of a plastic replacement sign face is 3/16". A completely flat sign, as you can imagine, remains this thickness throughout the surface, with no raised elements to the design. This style is the least expensive.
  2. Pan Molded - This style describes a sign surface that extends out beyond its lighted cabinet. Some people say this style looks like the face is "bubbled out."
  3. Pan and Embossed - This type of sign is similar to the Pan Molded style, as its face "bubbles out" but it takes you a step further by spicing up your custom signage with raised letters or graphics.

Recent Testimonials

What a pleasure it was dealing with your company. My company is right down the street, but If I were miles away... all the better to have folks so responsive. We requested several changes. You never grumbled (at least not so we knew it ). You're folks helped with design (our originals were fuzzy). You were fast. The final product was exactly what we wanted and delivered as promised. Great experience.

I am absolutely delighted with my sign!!! Thank you for doing a wonderful job. I have no complaints at all. I would love to send you a picture, but I won't be mounting my sign for a little while. I have to get town board approval to put it out first (uggggh - I should have just put it up without asking silly questions about how far from the road it should be....). So, if I have a complaint, it's with my town codes, not your sign. : )Thank you again for a wonderful job! Big pat on the back from me.
