“If I could give more than five (5) stars, I would! My experience with Signs for San Diego was nothing less than exceptional from start to finish. As a Project Manager for one of Gable’s largest clients, I expect our vendors to deliver high-quality product and/or services.”
We got both of our restaurant signs from them, and we couldn’t be happier! They were affordable, had incredible customer service, and the quality of their product matches their customer service! They even took care of some of our street light issues at no additional charge since they were already on-site with the lift!
They have a new customer for life!
Carlsbad Signs does the big stuff others can’t. If you need a gigantic banner, you need us. We can place your huge banner up to 60 feet or more high. We have the crane to do that.
Have the idea, but not the banner, we can help you with that too!! These banners get attention, they allow you to change out the messages on the regular. It is a great marketing and sales tool.
Banner material is also called Scrim. It comes in weights. The normal weight is 13 oz, but 11 and 18 are often seen. The banner can be as long as you like, but widths are up to 16 feet without a seem. With a seam, the width is theoretically unlimited.
Hems are often done with a double sides tape on smaller banners. This taped hem works well for the small stuff, but for huge banners or gigantic banners use a Double-Stitched Seam.
This like the single seam you see on clothing, but two of them sign by side. The seams in blue jeans are a lot like these. There can be one double seam or more depending on the weight of the banner. Double Stitch seams provide a stronger seam for huge banners.
Grommets are used in tents and awnings. They come in different sizes and materials. Brass and nickel are both common choices. The small, medium and large grommets are called #1, #2 and #3. Normal banners use #2, but the huge banners use #3 grommets.
These are heavier and can support more weight. In addition, the top edge may have a gromet every 4 feet or a lot more. The right number depends on the width, the weight and the application. How many do you need? We can help you figure this out
What is behind the banner matters. There are a number of common backers. The most common way to start is a stucco wall. These can be drilled and each hole used with a grommet hole, a concrete screw and a fender washer.
This works, but it damages the wall, and reuse is limited. The next better screw is to drill the same holes, but screw in eye bolts. These are used with zip ties and gromets. A banner change is quick and no further damage is ever needed, but the grommet locations must always be the same. The best is a mounted bar our frame. This allows different sizes on banners with variable grommet locations unlimited. How will your huge banner mount? We can help.
What is a pole pocket? A pole pocket is sewn into the banner and is a pocket through, normally along the top edge, where a pole is inserted.
This uses the pol to support the banner. Often the top edge will support this pole will need support is a number of points along the heave top edge.
These huge banners are heavy. They mount up high.
Does your sign company have an 80 foot crane? Carlsbad Signs does. This is mounted on a large truck. We drive out and have a man in a backet at the top. The install is tricky. We find the middle, and anchor it the middle of the top edge. From there we spread the banner left and write, but not tightening the banner up. The bottom and side are anchored in then we go back to the tope and start stretching the banner tight and level.
