Applying for your signage quote: how to ensure it is fast and accurate

Whether or not your project requires a fast turnaround, it is both helpful and important that your initial enquiry contains some key information to ensure the quote we send you is accurate and fast. This article will help you understand what to include when you first contact us, so your decal, frosting or signage quote is received in a timely manner.

What do you want?
Window decal, wall sticker, glass frosting, wall mural, acrylic sign, metallic sign or corflute sign? Our website shows some great examples to help you decide what you want – if you don’t already know. So we recommend you use this valuable resource to assist you in your decision-making.

Timeframe
Tell us your deadline. This will allow us to prioritise your quote accordingly.

Size matters
Even if you are only able to pass on approximate sizing of the window decal, wall sticker or signage that you want, the dimensions will go a long way to determining the pricing, so please include sizing when you can.

Similar applies to glass frosting or privacy film. Let us know the width of the glass panels – along with how many panels there are – and the height you would like the window frosting to be (1200mm height is standard).

Artwork
Be sure to provide us with any artwork files you have for the glass decal, wall mural or business signage you require.

If you don’t have artwork for your glass sticker or wall print, and would like us to create it, please let us know, so we can factor that into your quote.

Photos
Including photos of where you would like your wall graphics, window decals or window frosting installed is a huge help to us. This enables us to better predict any obstacles we may encounter, or judge approximate sizing if you are not able to provide that yourself.

Photographs can also serve as a useful guide when you are seeking our advice on possible solutions.

Inside or outside?
Let us know if you would like your window decal on the inside or outside of the glass. Production and installation is generally simpler when the adhesive is on the underside of your window graphics – so be sure to let us know if you have a preference.

Your address
Not only do we need to know where you are when it comes to installation or delivery, your address will help us calculate the travel time for our installers.

Whether it is glass decals, wall prints, shopfront signage, office murals or window frosting – this simple guide will help you receive an accurate quote in the fastest time possible.

Making Signage the Centrepiece of your Event

When you spend as much time designing, producing and installing: window frosting, glass decals, wall murals, shopfront signage and office wall stickers – for businesses, you can overlook what a significant component of our work creating event signage has been over the years. But when the incredibly talented folk at Valiant Event Styling entrusted us with an urgent job for an event they were working on, we were reminded of this fact in our favourite way possible.

The brief was simply the type of challenge our team at Sydney Signs Portal has grown to relish: to produce a multi-panel wall mural to be installed the following day. This included a consultative element from our most experienced team member to advise the client on how to resolve certain technical aspects of the project, or, as the client put it: “He went out of his way by providing advice on image specs… and suggested solutions to ensure the best result.”

Our team worked late into the night to produce the printed mural in time for the event. And, as you can see, the results were spectacular.

We enjoyed working with the professional team at valiant, and look forward to working with them in the future.

And be sure to make our team your first port of call for any of your event signage needs. We can advise you on the type of signage, murals or decals that will help your event become the spectacular success you are hoping for.

Ingenious Interior Design to a Deadline

reception-sign-Sydney

Few opportunities excite our team more than being presented with the task of interior design and transforming an office space with a range of signs, wall decals and glass decals.

 

Such was the case, when the wonderful people at Ingenia Communities reached out to us to complete this important work. As Australia’s largest owner operator of seniors communities, we appreciated the responsibility we had been entrusted with.

The project had an added dimension of difficulty in that we were working to an incredibly tight deadline – not the most optimal conditions when approaching interior design.

Thankfully, the creativity of our graphic designer, coupled with the helpful guidance and clear direction from the client, saw us deliver on schedule.glass-decal-Sydney

UNICEF SYDNEY OFFICE SIGNAGE

There are few organisations out there that command respect on the international stage in the way that UNICEF does. Since 1946, UNICEF has championed the rights of children, ensuring that the most vulnerable humans in conflict zones and disaster-stricken regions receive the food, water, medical assistance and education they need. This tireless work is in pursuit of a world where no child is denied basic needs, joy and safety.
So it was quite an honour for Sydney Signs Portal to be contacted by Unicef to complete a major installation at their Sydney CBD office.
After receiving their brief and inspecting the site, it became quickly apparent that the work they were wanting was well beyond their budget. Normally we would advise a client on ways to modify their ideas to accommodate their budget – but this IS UNICEF. As part of our ethical commitment, it felt right to offer this esteemed client a substantial discount, and deliver finished results that would exceed their expectations.
Sensing an opportunity to deliver more than the requested office world map wall graphics – and in keeping with our reputation as market-leading innovators – we were excited to debut our very own invention: digital print on whiteboard. The result being a 4.2m x 2.3m world map wall mural with office whiteboard functionality. Using erasable whiteboard markers, this office wall map can be used to plot points, make notes and strategically plan any international operations.

We also installed a more traditional vinyl office whiteboard in one of the UNICEF offices. As whiteboard vinyl on white wall tends to blend, making the borders indistinguishable, it is not uncommon for people to accidentally write on walls. We resolved this issue by adding a custom black boarder to the office whiteboard. This also achieved a more aesthetically pleasing finish, resembling an old-school whiteboard.
While it may be on point or a trend for businesses to assign offices the names of prominent world cities – this carries far more meaning when UNICEF decides to do it. As is custom for room name glass stickers, we used vinyl glass decals. The classic font in black maintains the formal appearance and is timeless.
For the two meeting rooms requiring privacy, we installed classic simple window frosting.

When you are working with an organisation that gives so much to those who have so little, you feel compelled to give as much as you can. Beyond our time and materials; our expertise; our attention to detail; our ability to innovate – it was our an honour to give generously to UNICEF. The spectacular results only further confirm our commitment to excellence.
