Spring is a time for renewal and rebranding - and it is the perfect time to install new outdoor signs! With the warmer weather, installation is a breeze, and more eyes are outside, ready to take a look at your sign.


Should you change your sign when your business rebrands? For Yes-MLS, the answer was a definite yes. As a business, you never want your customers to have to guess what your business is called, so a clear and professional sign is the first thing you want to install. Rebranding is a great opportunity to reintroduce your business to your community, current customers and potential customers. A smart business will make sure that they lead with great visuals to make that all important first impression.

When Yes-MLS called us, they were looking for help with a rebranding effort. What they were after was a big impression, which calls for a big sign! Our experts started by removing the old letters, and cleaning up the area, ready for a shiny new sign to be installed.


To make a maximum impact, it was decided that a precise, clean sign of 1/2” thick routed acrylic would be ideal, painted in Yes-MLS’s corporate colors. Using a CNC machine, we custom cut each element of the sign. This technique allows for maximum precision, customization, and durability, creating a sign that will catch attention and create a great first impression.

Once the sign was cut, our experts painted it with commercial outdoor grade paint, an extra durable formula that ensures that the colors will stay fresh for the long run. Then, the letters were fitted with metal studs on the back. This technique allows our expert installers to drill holes, set the elements with adhesive, and create a great looking sign!


Businesses looking to rebrand can talk to our experts and begin the exciting process of designing a whole new look for themselves.

Say “YES!” To Dimensional Wall Letters

Dimensional wall letters are just hard to turn down as an effective way to get your organization noticed. Great for both indoor and outdoor use, dimensional lettering creates a clean, sophisticated look. When installed professionally there’s the suggestion of establishment and permanence. Just say YES!

 When Northern Ohio Regional Multiple Listing Service (NORMLS) and Centralized Regional Information Service (CRISmls) decided to consolidate and combine to form a single organization, the merge entailed a name change: Yes-MLS. The newly consolidated service came with a new name and a new logo, which needed to be represented in their offices.
Dimensional Wall LettersAlready familiar with our work, Yes-MLS contacted us to create dimensional lettering to identify their building, as well as to create a directional sign for their driveway. We suggested routed PVC materials, painted to match their new corporate logo colors -- a bold red, black, and white.

We used the new Yes-MLS logo and rendered that in a photo to scale, based on our survey of measrements. Upon Yes-MLS’s approval of the design, we proceeded to obtain the necessary permits from the city for installation -- this is part of the service we provide. Once approved, and after permits were secured, we headed into fabrication for routing, painting, and finishing Yes-MLS’s dimensional graphics.

Using their existing white wall as a backdrop, we drilled holes to affix the dimensional wall lettering; dimensional graphics have studs mounted on the back so that they can easily be attached to the surface.

The final product of Yes-MLS’s exterior signage is an eye-catching dimensional design with bold colors that stand out against the existing wall color. Sans serif text makes the company name and street address clear and easy to read for those driving by and perfectly communicates their new corporate identity. The best part of choosing dimensional wall lettering in PVC is that Yes-MLS’s signage will last for many years -- it’s a great low maintenance choice.

 If your Cleveland area business is ready to say “Yes!” to dimensional graphics, contact us today to work with our design team to create a design that works with your budget and clearly communicates what your business is all about.

Interior Titanium Gold Display Sign for Shieban Jewelers

For the grand opening of their remodeled and expanded flagship store, Sheiban Jewelers needed the crowning touch: a custom gold logo to grace the wall overlooking the new showroom.

The Sheiban Family turned to Epic Signs & Graphics to craft and mount a stainless steel and polished titanium gold sign in graceful script...a tasteful Sheiban “signature” worthy of the elegant showroom appointed with Spanish marble, cherry doors carved by Amish artisans, and a hand-painted, gold leaf dome.

Interior retail LED business sign


The Sheiban Family wanted shopping for the perfect piece of jewelry to be a luxury experience for their valued customers. They created a showroom that echos Sheiban’s standards of beautiful, distinctive jewelry manufacturing and design.

Epic Signs & Graphics holds to the same high standards in interior custom sign design and manufacturing. The Epic crew designed an 85” x 36” logo made of stainless steel, finished with polished titanium gold. Mounted with 2-inch standoffs for a three-dimensional effect, the sign features backlit LED lighting to make it pop. No detail was overlooked. Meticulous measurements and planning ensured that the perfectly spec'd Sheiban Jewelers logo was in place in time for the grand opening.

LED Channel letter sign

Epic Signs & Graphics mounted a Rolex LED illuminated channel letter and logo on the exterior of the Sheiban Jewelers building as well.

New Building Letter Sign for St. Luke the Evangelist Church in Lakewood OH

Posted by John Grigoli

Nov 25, 2014 10:34:00 AM

For both the exterior and the interior of a professional building, dimensional letters are an ideal signage alternative. With little more than the makeup of the letter you choose, you have the opportunity to shape your building’s feel and look thanks to the vast array of design options and materials available with dimensional letters.

Dimensional Letter Building Signs Northeast OH

St. Luke the Evangelist realized this, so they contacted Epic Signs & Graphics for exterior dimensional letters for churches in Northeast OH.

Why Our Client Chose a Dimensional Letter Sign

Located on Bunts Road in Lakewood, the Church of St. Luke the Evangelist is a faith community that seeks to grow together by celebrating the presence of Christ in the Word, in one another, and in the Eucharist. Members of the church serve all of the people of the area through service, prayer, hospitality, and education.

When an organization that is so committed to helping those in need in the community came to us for signage, we jumped into action. St. Luke knew exactly what they wanted: exterior dimensional letter signs. Northeast OH buildings benefit from this type of signage due to its affordability and durability. We went with plastic formed letters from Gemini, a world renowned signage material manufacturer. We mounted the letters flush with studs drilled into the brick. The results were another beautiful sign and another satisfied client.

Sign Options

Dimensional letters are an inexpensive option because you are able to promote your business or organization without any custom work. The toughest part is choosing what material you want. Here are some of the more popular alternatives:

  • Cast Metal – This is your best option when you want to exude time tested professionalism, confidence that you will be in business for the long haul, and durability. For decades, these letters will last inside or out.
  • Plastic – For the creation of dimensional letters, formed plastic is a great choice. Plus, plastic letters are available in a vast array of colors. Any building atmosphere can benefit from metallic shades, beautiful pastels, or bold reds. Use these letters for exterior or interior signage, since plastic is exceedingly rugged.
  • Cut Metal – Our experts create stunningly crisp flat metal letters using precision water jets or lasers. You can customize the dimensions of the signage you are creating, since cut metal comes in a range of thicknesses. We recommend thicker signs on the outside of your building and flatter signs indoors.
  • PVC – Letters can be created in a selection of thicknesses and heights with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) letters. PVC letters are another option that works great outside and in.
  • Acrylic or Metal Laminate – Durability is added to the letter by acrylic or metal laminate when used on foam or PVC. Plus, against the wall on which the letters are mounted, the laminate and foam combination creates a three dimensional look that really stands out. And, this effect serves to heighten the vibrancy of the colors on a multi-colored wall.
