FAQs: Redirections Sign & Design. Answers to our most common questions.
AGraphics and Production
What type of artwork do you accept?
It really depends on the project. We want to produce the highest quality sign and graphic for you, and the original artwork you send us will help in that final product. Generally speaking, you can follow these guidelines:
- For Screen Printed Signs, Dimensional and Routed Signage, or Cut Vinyl Graphics: all text and logos must be converted to curves or outlines and saved as a PDF, AI, or EPS file.
- For Digitally Printed Graphics, Signs and Banners: files should be saved at the highest DPI available. Typically 300 DPI is good, but depending on the project, our designers may request or suggest a different DPI and file size.
What do you need to get my sign project started?
Good question! There are many factors we consider in producing the most awesome sign for you. But generally speaking, we are ready to give you design options on your project if you have available:
- A company logo or artwork (see above for specifications on file requirements).
- A project-specific logo or artwork (see above for specifications on file requirements).
- Specific PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors you would like on the sign.
- Desired fonts.
- Related copy/text that you want on the sign.
- Also consider:
- What is the sign’s main purpose?
- Is the sign indoors or outdoors?
- How far away is the “viewer” going to be when they read the sign?
- When will you need it installed?
- Do you require permits for the sign?
- What is your sign? I’m a scorpio.

What year was Redirections Sign & Design founded?
1987. The same year that The Simpsons debuted on the Tracey Ullman Show. And gas was $.89 a gallon.
Do you go by other names or aliases?
We started out as RE-Directions. The “RE” stood for “Real Estate” and we primarily focused on directional signs for new home builders and developers. For a long time that stuck. And so did our first domain www.re-directions.com. The issue became clear that people were unaware that we had blossomed into a full source sign shop. So, we dropped some upper cases and lost some hyphens, and now it all flows together…(say it outloud) Redirections Sign & Design. You may have seen variations “ReDirections”, “RE-Directions”, “Re-Directions”, or “Re-directions”, all of which have been long retired. We are incorporated as Redirections, Inc. (so, you may see this strictly on government mumbo jumbo, like W2s and the like.)
I was at Goodwill and saw a Redirections Sign & Design shirt with an old logo on it, can I wear it?
Of course! We love our history. And vintage is really cool.
