Choose DesignElement for a complete, turnkey solution. What does that mean? It means our customers come to us to with an idea and then we handle the entire process of turning that idea into a finished product. In the end we have taken care of all of their interior and exterior signage needs. Everything is installed exactly to specification.
We can provide the design, permit acquisition, construction/construction management, logistics, and even service after the sale for ongoing maintenance as needed over time. This is an advantage that is easy to overlook, but when you need additional signs after the end of the project, sometimes the larger companies that sub out all of the signage fabrication will not be able to quickly turn around those small extra signs. We can have that ready for you and what’s better, you can have us under a maintenance contract so those extra signs are already covered.
Questions & Answers
We want to be involved in every step of the planning, can you accommodate this?
We’d be disappointed if you weren’t as involved and excited about your project as we were. When can we start collaborating?
Can DesignElement still help us if we've already started construction?
Absolutely. It’s never too late to call us into the process for whatever reason. We can design from scratch or pick up the pieces and still make something beautiful.
What if we already have a sign package, can you install it?
Yes, we can collaborate with your sign manufacturer to install the signs according to an existing sign plan.
