There really isn't a short answer to this question. Some jobs can be produced in minutes and some may take weeks or months. The length of time it takes to make a sign can vary depending in the materials, usage and complexity. Let us know when you need your job completed and we'll let you know if it can be done. We go to great lengths to meet your most stringent demands.
A proof is a way of ensuring that we have set your type accurately and that everything is positioned according to your requirements. Typically, we will produce a proof which will be sent to you online within 48 hours of your request.
Your approval on the final proof is assurance that you have looked over every aspect of our work and approve it as accurate. It benefits everyone if errors are caught in the proofing process rather than after the job is completed and delivered.
It may seem like a proof wouldn't be needed in this case but it really is. Output devices process digital information using a variety of processing languages. Your approval of the proof which we will provide assures that the output device used has correctly interpreted and processed the information you have provided.
The expected lifetime of a sign depends on whether you place the sign or graphic indoor or outdoor. We use sign materials for short-term applications and also provide materials for long-term projects. We also laminate all exterior signage to prolong the life of your signs. Whether your sign needs to withstand the elements in an outdoor setting or needs to be located indoor, our consultants will work with you to determine the best solution for your needs.
When selecting a font, it’s important to choose a one that’s legible and reflects your brand. The font or typeface refers to the letters or characters that make up the copy on the sign. Fonts are categorized by Serif, San Serif, Script and Specialty. Remember that some fonts are difficult to read. We can help you consider important factors such as visibility, readability, noticeability and legibility when choosing the font for your sign.
To provide a custom sign that meets your needs, it’s important that you provide the logo as a vector based file. You can save your logo as an .eps file for the highest quality reproduction. As long as your logo is vector artwork, it can also be provided as .eps, .ai or PDF file.
We can use the Pantone Matching System (PMS) to define a color, or we can match color from a CMYK chart printed on the machine that will ultimately create your custom sign. Our team can print a test swatch to test the best match for your special color matching needs.

The longevity of an outdoor banner varies widely. After the vinyl and printing choice, the life of your banner depends on appropriate installation and on environmental conditions such as the weather, which usually range from extreme to moderate. Banners are most commonly intended for short-term applications. Our team will be able to provide you with the best options to fit your budget and communications needs. Keep in mind that while a banner is an excellent and time-tested promotional sign, it is not a substitute for permanent signs.
New Home Media provides outdoor and indoor safety signage including compliance signs, workplace safety signs, OSHA signage, COVID signage and more.
