Paper Signs Q & A

Paper signs, compared to other types of materials, are very affordable. They are easy to store and move from one location to the other, and they can be hand drawn or hand painted with ease for those that want something with a bit more of a personal touch.

Paper signs are certainly more fragile than other types of signage, but they can still be stored and re-used with ease if you use the right type of care.

Yes. We are able to provide hand painted paper signs to customers that request it, so that you have a unique, one of a kind sign that is certain to impress.

For hand painted signs we may be limited to the colors of paint, pencil, and marker available but we have hundreds of different colors in stock and can match almost any color that your brand uses. Please contact us for more information about the colors you’d like to consider. Chances are we have it available.

This is a difficult question to answer. Paper signs can be more fragile than metal signs, wood signs, and plastic signs, but if they are kept indoors, rolled up after use, and not exposed to moisture, they may last for months or years. In some cases, lamination may also be available to extend the life of the sign. Some of the paper signs we’ve created in NYC years ago are still seen in storefronts today.

Outdoor use of paper signs is not recommended except in great weather or for temporary purposes, like a short sale. Outdoors, a sign is more likely to be exposed to moisture and dirt. For outdoor signs, you may want to consider banners.

Paper printing is a bit more limited in sizes than other forms of printing, but there are still many very large sizes available. The largest size we can currently create is{{insert size}}. If you need a paper sign of a larger size, contact us and we’ll see what we can do or what alternatives are available.

Yes. We can provide you with backlit LED signs, our hand painted sign, and much more. The question isn’t what we can do, but what you need. You let us know your ideas, and we’ll let you know if we can create it.

Hand painted signs tend to take a bit longer than printed signs, but most signs can be created within one week. If you need the sign any faster, please let us know and we’ll give you a turnaround time. We may be able to complete some sign orders within 48 hours or less, and ship to you with overnight shipping if pickup is not available.

Paper doesn’t respond well to being wet, so if your goal is to keep your paper sign for years to come, it is a good idea to consider framing it or using lamination and plastic covers to extend its lifespan. Try to keep it away from wet areas and consider placing it in dry storage.
