Restaurant Banners – Open for Take-Out

Is your restaurant open for take-out? Do your customers know that? Maybe it’s time for a Take-Out Banner, so your customers are clear that you are open for business.

As you know, this is a tough time for a lot of locally-owned restaurants. Since the public stay-at-home order, going out and sitting down for a nice meal is out of the question. Some restaurants have been able to keep their doors open with the promise of a freshly cooked meal that customers can take home instead. The problem is, not everyone knows that.

Creating Face Masks During a Time of Crisis

Students from all across Ventura County in California are making face masks using 3D printers to donate to doctors and nurses in several hospitals. During these trying times, the community is genuinely coming to help one another and make sure that our healthcare workers are taken care of.


The non-profit organization known as STEMbassadors is providing the 3D printers and the students are creating the bands. However, they needed routers to make the clear plastic shields. 

face masks

Our part started when we were contacted by a friend whose daughter is a STEMbassador at DATA Middle School. STEMbassadors reached out to several different businesses within the community who were thought to have routers and asked to pitch in to make the shields. We were part of a team in the community. We each took part in making the shields so local medical staff could be protected.

Part of a Team

Overall, around 30-40 face shields are being manufactured a day by the students. The bands are being made by the 3D printers in their homes, but they needed routers to make the clear plastic face shields.

Everyone had their part. We were one of several businesses that donated our time and router to create the face shields, and others donated the materials. When all was said and done, we (Dave’s Signs) produced a couple of thousand face shields. Were not sure how many were produced in total by everyone.

The way the community and students have come together to ensure that our healthcare workers are safe is quite impressive and very touching.

While companies and people with routers are creating the face shields, the people behind this operation are the students. It’s a fantastic thing to see a community pull together in a time of crisis and make a difference.

If you would like to help or make a donation, you can email Alex Wulff at STEMbassadors at [email protected].

3 Types of Office Lobby Signs for Your Business

Your office lobby is often the first impression – or last – a client, employee, or vendor has of your place of business. You must establish a strong brand presence in this area to ensure people know where you measure up in terms of quality, professionalism, and overall feeling of your business.

At Dave’s Signs, we understand lobby signs need to showcase your brand effectively and tell your story. Here are three sign types to consider.

lobby signs

1.) Dimensional Letter Logo Signs

The most basic of signs are dimensional letter logo signs. They are a simple yet perfect fit because of their impactful, elegant, and eye-catching design and construction. We use materials like acrylic, metal laminates, steel, aluminum, and so much more to create a sign using your logo. Every piece is cut individually and designed carefully to have the best impact at an affordable cost.

2.) Internally Illuminated Lobby Signs

Illuminated signs can showcase your logo and name clearly with the added sophistication of having parts of the sign highlighted with lights. Halo-lit channel letter signs like the one above, “Digital Dental Arts Laboratory” bring your eye in and give off a feeling of technology that goes with their brand. It blends their message of using the latest technology matched with their artistic ability required for making the perfect smile with dental implants.

Energy-Efficient LEDs

Internally illuminated signs can use neon or energy-efficient LED lights. The most common are LEDs. These signs are suitable in properties that are open during late evenings or want the added attraction an illuminated sign provides.

We fabricate each letter individually, including your logo, and install lights inside. These signs are made from steel, aluminum, acrylic, or glass so you can choose what suits your desired look and feel.

3.) Externally Lit Office Lobby Signs

Lastly, another option for lighting office lobby signs is using external lights like this one at theTradeDesk. Lights are coming down from the ceiling and match the look of the rest of the office building.

What sign type of right for you? It really depends on the overall look and feel you are after, and your budget.

Office Suite Signs

Signs are an essential aspect of establishing a brand presence and ensuring people can find you. They’re especially important if you have an office in a corporate building with many other businesses. At Dave’s Signs, we provide high-quality office suite signs that customers can mount by their office door or other such prominent locations.

What is an Office Suite Sign?

An office suite sign is a plaque that mentions your office suite number, brand name, owner name, and other details. It provides visitors with all the information they need to know, which improves their overall experience at your establishment. These signs are generally smaller than outdoor signs. They are placed on the office door or beside it to ensure they’re visible to everyone passing by. You can choose from a wide range of designs, colors, materials, and fonts.

Choosing the Right Design

You need to choose a design that establishes a strong brand presence to get the best results. Look for designs that work well with your company’s message and target audience. For example, if you’re a pediatrician, choose something colorful and vibrant. If you’re a lawyer, choose a sleek and professional design.

Office Suite Signs

Personalizing a sign can help it stand apart from a similar design in the building. We recommend metal or glass plaques because they look modern and are easier to maintain. Wood-finish signs add an aura of elegance and luxury, which makes them a good option for high-end brands or services. If you’re not sure about the design or material, our expert graphic artists can help. They can also design a new brand logo for the sign to ensure it looks current.

Choosing the right signs can be the difference between an impactful and durable sign and a total disaster. Here are some things to look for in a sign company:

1.) Experience And Reputation – These aspects always go hand-in-hand. The signage company you hire needs to be experienced and knowledgeable and have a good reputation in the market. Make it a point to check the company’s website and their portfolio or gallery.  Also, check online reviews for the company and see what previous clients are saying about their services.

2.) Accessibility And Response – Call the listed number on the company’s website and check whether your call gets diverted to voicemail or you get a live person on the line. It’s best to work with a company that has a solid local presence. Aside from prompt design and installation services, you also need to ensure that you can access them easily for signage maintenance and repairs, as and when required.

3.) High Quality Signage Materials – Make it a point to check some of the signs the company has installed and judge whether they seem to be of high quality.

4.) Creativity – While most businesses provide their logos and some design ideas, credible signage companies also offer design consultation. So, it’s essential to check whether the signs have been designed creatively. It is an indication of their skill and expertise.

5.) Cost – Last but not least, it’s also crucial that you check the pricing structure that the company maintains. Find out what their initial design and installation costs are. You also need to have a clear idea of how they charge for the service and maintenance of the signage.

Conducting all this research and keeping all these aspects in view, will help ensure you hire the right company for your signage needs.
