Business Signs that will get your customers attention

Your sign may be the first impression someone has of your business.  We’ll work with you to create and build a custom design that will stand out. Carved wood with gold leaf, aluminum panels, reflective vinyl to stand out at night.  3D raised letters, full color photo images, or anything you can imagine. If you can imagine it, we can build it. We work with many different materials to best suit your needs, budget and conditions. We can also make our signs really pop by adding three dimensional features that will surely stand out from your competitors. Here at Adventure, we’ve built thousands of signs over the past 30 years and we’ll make sure your sign stands out.

Outdoor Signs come in many materials

The construction of your outdoor signage is important to ensure it looks great and lasts for years to come.  We manufacture signs in many materials to create the look and quality you need. Starting with the sign panel, we build signs from wood, composite products, PVC, Aluminum and more depending on the structure, weight and shapes that are required.  Once we have the panels constructed, we’ll apply paint, cut vinyl, or UV protected and laminated printed graphics to ensure your design looks great and lasts in the sun. From printed images to gold leaf, we’ll be sure your outdoor signs are constructed using quality materials that last through the elements.

Building Signs

If you are mounting a business sign on the exterior walls of your building or want a hanging sign along main street, we’ll work with you to create a custom design that is sure to draw attention. Here at Adventure, we have worked with a multitude of different businesses ranging from restaurants to hotels to breweries and everything in between. We understand that you want to stand out and may have a unique style, and we want to bring that idea to life. Whether you want a large bagel built to hang on your building or a simple square sign with your logo, we can make it all happen. We also can make your signs 3 dimensional to make them really pop.

Yard Signs and Site Signs

Yard signs are a great way to use temporary signage to build awareness of your business and highlight your job sites. For construction site signs, real estate signs, job signs, campaign signs, or even yard sale signs, we can do small or large batches of signs and keep our prices affordable, and get your product you need to showcase your work. We also strive for quality here at Adventure and will make the best quality signs that will hold up and look good in all of Maine’s unpredictable weather.

Interior Signs and Wayfinding Signage

From department signs in a retail store to hospital directories and office door signs, we design and produce interior signage to direct people to the right locations or highlight departments. Hospitals and department stores are complex and have a lot to see and a lot of places to go. For ease of shopping or navigating your way to your grandmother in room 203, we can help with any and all directional wayfinding signage. Whether it’s hanging signs, wall directories, or vinyl lettering indicating which window is drop off and which is pick up, We can design, map and install for you.

Sign Permits and Applications

Outdoor signs often require permits from your city and or Maine DOT (Department of Transportation) There are typically different permits and classifications of sign permits needed.  Permanent signs may require a permit with your town and DOT depending on the road and placement, while temporary signs like banners, yard signs, and site signs most often do not.  When we work with you to design your custom signs, we’ll provide you with a mock-up that shows the design of your sign to scale on your property or building, and includes the measurements and materials with which it will be constructed.  This information will be a key for quick processing of your sign permit application. If you have questions or difficulties with your permit applications, contact us and we’ll help you with the process.


Custom Sign FAQ

How Much Does a business Sign Cost?

The business signs we design and produce are completely custom. It is impossible to put a generic price on the overall cost because there are many factors that attribute to it. Some factors include size (determined by square footage), location (building or road), permit process which can include fees, and where we need to travel to in order to install your sign.

Can I Use Something That Was Predesigned?
