Neon Signs have been long regarded as vintage, or classic statements of high end forms of advertising. Many people often associate neon signs with famous locations such as Times Square, or the Las Vegas strip. Additionally, many people may come across neon signs in places like their favorite bar and restaurant, or in high fashion industries. However, why would we stop there when we can utilize neon signs to spice up party decor, living spaces, or business store fronts?
Neon signs are an extravagant way to make a cost efficient, advertising and display choice. The options for design, shape and size are endless. Neon benders use fire and glass as the essential tools to bend and shape the intricate designs we often see and admire. Furthermore, they can create specified logos, and text styles that can be classified as an an elite, handmade form of art.
Neon signs, as beautiful as they’re also last an average of seven to ten years before they require a transformer change, which are the tubes that keep the sign brightly illuminated. Therefore, the maintenance for indoor neon signs are extremely minimal. Outdoor neon signs may require some extra protection from sun rays, rain and dust. In this case, clear, acrylic boxes are used to shelter the neon sign in such a way that the beauty of it is not stripped away. They allow the illumination properties to remain bright. Also, often people will use neon signs as a light fixture, which will also still be possible with the acrylic boxes. Essentially, acrylic boxes are a simple addition to a neon sign, that allows the lifespan of it to extend significantly.
At Sam’s Signs, customers often request this outdoor signage to enhance the aesthetic appeal of their store fronts. They report that it invites a larger audience and creates a professional, yet artistic ambiance. Let us help you develop your brand in a creative, cost efficient way.

There is no job too big for Sam’s Signs. Recently the Sam’s Signs crew acquired a project with the Oakland airport. Our job was to install vinyl adhesives on an executive, business class, private jet. At a whopping two hundred feet long, boom lifts were necessary for the installation. There was a large demand for timeliness, and professionalism, and we were up for the challenge. With an installation crew of only 4 people, under a time crunch of less than one day’s time, Sam’s Signs managed to get the job done successfully. We hope to gain new opportunities at this scale, there is no canvas too big.
Established in 1965. The Titos Mexican cuisine has been a staple of Bayfair’s local restaurants. It had initially served as a diner prior to it being a cantina and restaurant duo. Titos has been able to serve the community successfully for so long, but it was finally time for it upgrade it’s signage needs to attract a larger passing audience. Titos ordered a custom, neon, channel letter, blade sign. A fancy way of saying a 3D, illuminated sign. The features included 2 neon colors, and LED illumination. The sign created a professional appeal, and so many customers captured the new sign through the night time ambiance. It was a special moment for owner Mike. He was just as happy as us to introduce his business with a fresh start.
Many national chains, such as grocery stores and restaurants use channel letters. They provide a professional aesthetic with visibility from a far range. They also help to build brand images that become familiar with the public. Channel letter signs can come in illuminated, or non illuminated forms and are made from aluminum, acrylic, or metal materials. Often illuminated signs are lit with LED lights, and sometimes neon lights, both of which grant a beautiful night time appeal to passing audiences.

We may notice sidewalk displays as we walk through our favorite downtown city areas, and we briefly stop to read what the message states. Whether it says “sale on entire store,” or “new cinnamon almond milk coffee,” sidewalk signs are able to attract walking pedestrians efficiently. Sidewalk signs are better known in the professional world as A Frames, or Sandwich Boards. They’re both easy to install, and store, and their use is not limited to outdoor display alone. Restaurants, or cafe’s will display their menu, or specials inside using A frames.
A frames are created from a heavy duty plastic material, or powder coated metal. The digital media graphics posted on the sign are weather resistant, and with proper storing can be preserved for a long time. The sign is incredibly durable and within seconds, you begin to advertise your business. As soon as your business nears closing hours, all you need to do is fold your A frame sign, and store it for the next business day. Its that simple.
Vinyl banners are a great form of both indoor and outdoor media, art culture and brand display. They’re made from a material that is durable and can withstand weather conditions such as strong rain and wind. Banner graphics are absolutely customizable, and their uses are flexible, from events, to grand openings and advertising. With the addition of grommets, hems, and even ropes, you may install your own banners exactly where you’d like.
Sam’s Signs offers high quality banners, with a fast turnaround of nearly same day, or next day processing. Additionally, our printers allow us to print large scale banners to fit bigger venues.

Also known as reverse channel letters, Halo lit lettering creates a refined, contemporary look. Typically LEDs and sometimes neon creates the “halo” effect.” The installation process involves using spacers to create a gap between the rear of the letters and the surface from which it protrudes. In this way, the light will exit through the gap. The typeface is usually made from a plastic, acrylic, aluminum, or metal material. Depending on which material being used, it will affect the different degrees to communicate lighting sophistication.
Sam’s Sign completed a halo lit sign for Pacific Motor Inn located in the peninsula area. The surface on which the sign was installed was wrapped, using a scenic view of the ocean to set the tone for the light projection. The project definitely captured an alluring look.
Sam’s Signs recently completed a full, matte finish, custom vehicle wrap on a Tesla Model X. The Gun Metal matte metallic, in Avery vinyl gave the Tesla an almost futuristic look, given the gullwing doors we worked with. The Tesla aesthetic by nature is a simple, modern, and classy look. Totally transforming from a glossy black to a mattified finish gave this Tesla a whole new, original vibe.
We offer matte, and glossy finishes, and art/advertising display on any canvas you might bring to us. We hope to transform your canvas into you personal visuals and broadcast them for your audience. Help us bring your vision to life.
