Technical jargon can sometimes be quite confusing. And the last thing we want is for our clients to be confused. Here are a few answers to the common (and not so common) questions we get asked on a regular basis. If you still have a question after reading this page, please feel free to give us a call, we are always happy to help where we can.

I am not sure what material to suggest for my sign, can you advise?

Yes, we consider all the factors pertinent to your signage requirements including but not limited to position and function to be able to produce signs that will be effective and have longevity. We make signs using all kinds of materials including stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, perspex, brass and copper to name a few; however there is no limit to the type of materials we use.

We find that some materials are largely affected by trends, and we often produce signs at times based on these trends, for example copper and brass are popular at the moment. We are able to source our raw materials from various merchants around the world and our ability to order and utilise such large volumes of these materials, means that we are able to remain very competitive in our prices.

Can SPS produce bespoke artwork pieces?

Yes. It is our passion to produce the pieces and ideas that our clients dream up and this can take the form of custom artwork pieces or installations. We pride ourselves on our willingness and ability to innovate, with the ultimate goal of bringing our clients visions to life.

How do I go about ordering a sign from SPS?

We are always keen to discuss your signage options and requirements in detail.

Send through your ideas and how you would like to see it made. If you are unsure about some of the details like colours, materials or sizing, we are able to then assist and workout the finer details together.

If you would like, we can measure up the space and check accessibility.

From there, we would prepare artwork with a relevant quote.

We do require a 50% deposit in order to begin production.

Once the sign has been made and is ready to go, we would just arrange a time that suits you for the installation by one of our installation teams.

Once it is installed and you are satisfied, the balance payment would then be due.

Could you please come to meet on site to see the space and measure up?

Yes, it is our pleasure to meet with you on site to discuss your requirements and take relevant measurements where necessary.

Would SPS do a small sign like my house number or art piece or do you only do massive projects?

Yes. Our sign making abilities are not limited by size, we are happy to assist with any size sign or project – from house numbers to signage for entire developments.

Does SPS do projects outside of South Africa?

Yes. We have successfully completed fantastic projects in many countries all over Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Mozambique, Zambia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Lesotho, Mauritius and Seychelles.

Can SPS install my sign?

Yes. We have extremely efficient installation teams who are well able to install your sign at any height. We make use of our own tools and ladders, scaffolding and even cherry pickers where necessary.

Do we charge a design or consulting fees

No. We don’t charge call out and artwork fees for presentations. We feel it is important that we are all on the same page before your sign goes into production and the design is just part of the process to ensuring that.
