New Vision Signs and Solutions offers most of our high quality signage in a variety of  materials.  While many projects can be accomplished equally with one of several materials, there are advantages and disadvantages to each material that can make some materials more suited for a project than others.

It’s important when designing your sign to think about its intended application and which material would be best suited for it.  The friendly staff at New Vision is familiar with all of these materials and can help you choose which material would be right for your project.
