Frequently Asked Questions...

How long does it take to produce a sign?

Simpler jobs such as banners, corex signs, or boat numbers can usually be fit in between larger projects and reach completion in 2-5 business days. Moderately difficult projects may require about a week to ten days, and larger jobs may take up to three weeks or more. We take pride in ensuring that your project is completed correctly.


What materials are available for my sign project?

We have an assortment of product samples available for you to see and feel. We will work with you to choose the right material for the job. The coastal environment can be tough on many materials, but longevity and exposure are considered when choosing a substrate to work with.


What kind of vinyl do you use?

Primarily we use 3M 220 series cast vinyl for our cut vinyl graphics and Oracal vinyl for the digital printer.  It is important is that the correct material be chosen for a particular application; we can help with that! We also have available Avery vinyl which has a nice color selection and other vinyls which may be appropriate for short term projects.


How long will my banner or sign last?

The life of your sign will depend on the material you choose and the use of your sign.  We will recommend the best material for your sign project and budget.


What is your product guarantee?

Every sign carries the manufacturer’s guarantee on the substrates. More importantly, we stand behind our work and want you to be happy with the quality and design. The vinyl lettering has a life of 5-9 years before any yellowing, cracking or peeling will occur. With proper care and maintenance we can make your sign look great for the length of its life. Please take a moment to read over the "Information Regarding..." section for more details.


How do I know what my sign look like?

We show a proof for every project.  In the case of vehicle graphics, we photograph your vehicle and then superimpose the new graphics over your vehicle’s image so you can see exactly what your new and exciting “billboard” will look like! Newport Signs can start working on producing your project once you have approved the proof, which may be e-mailed or faxed for your convenience.
