Banners & Awnings
Awnings can both advertise and decorate your business (store front) and add a touch of individuality. The awning can also lower the temperature significantly by blocking the direct sun coming into your store front. Spanjer can design and fabricate your awning based on your specific needs – call us today for an estimate.
Our digitally printed full color banners are printed on heavy-duty material utilizing industry leading technology. When text is all you need, call on Spanjer to produce quality banners with standard fonts and solid color backgrounds.
Wood Signage | Plaques
Wood signs make great awards or recognition plaques. Customized wood signs can have a special saying, a motivational message, corporate logos, or anything else you want. Wording can be on one side or both sides. Signs can be made to hang indoors or outdoors. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination and our staff can make your imagination a reality.
Nothing can equal the brilliance of gold leaf. It catches light from all angles and it never tarnishes of fades. Adding gold leaf to your sign adds quality and beauty and a certain amount of “sophistication & elegance.” We design and produce all these signs right out of your facilities.
Usually these adhesive backed signs made of vinyl film or full color film are generally applied to windows, floors, displays or vehicles. Vinyl graphics can range from lettering & die-cut decals to custom computer-cut lettering, logos, and full-color photo wraps. Vinyl graphics are composed of a polyvinylchloride film backed with an adhesive that creates a strong bond to a surface when pressure is applied. Available for a variety of short-term / long-term, indoor / outdoor applications, vinyl graphics can be applied to nearly any surface and are removable, leaving no residue.
Dimensional letters can create lower profile identification than illuminated or channel letters, but offer a wide variety of uses at a cost-effective price. Almost any material can be used to fabricate dimensional letters, particularly for indoor applications. Non-illuminated letters for outdoor use are made from materials such as acrylic, formed plastic, PVC, and aluminum to offer years of durability and service.
Spanjer has erected a collection of indoor & outdoor dimensional letter signs for various business across the tri state area.
Spanjer has designed and built some of the country’s most recognizable ad iconic signs over the past 100+ years. LED signs, or Electronic Message Centers (EMCs) are computerized programmable electronic visual communication devices. These signs are proficient at storing and displaying numerous messages in various formats and at changeable intervals. Today you can change your message frequently, without the cost of replacing missing or broken letters, and without the physical labor involved in changing copy. LED signs allow you to communicate more effectively with the consuming public and your audience.
Channel & Reverse Channel Letters
Channel Letters/Front Lit, channel letters are generally manufactured from aluminum. Generally, a flat sheet of aluminum is cut by a computer controlled router table in the shape of the entire sign. This creates the back of the letter and is the basis for the letter shape. The “returns” of the letter are created by bending and forming a 3 to 6-inch wide strip of aluminum sheet around the aluminum back. This return can be welded or riveted to the back to create a solid “can” in the shape of the letter or graphic. The acrylic is front illuminated by the Neon or L.E.D.’s at night to give a nice lighted letter.
Or, Reverse Channel Letters/Back Lit is where the face of the letter is constructed from aluminum and the lighting is directed to the back. This light floods the wall that the letter is mounted to and this creates a negative space at night. Letters in this style are also called “halo letters”.
Spanjer creates some of the most functional and visually striking directory signs available.
