Our Products

Have a look below at some of the great products we offer.

3D Graphics

Have you thought about how 3D Graphics Signs can support your business image?

3D lettering with 3D graphics signs convey a distinctive image. The look can make you think “expensive” but using today’s materials your signage bill doesn’t have to reflect expensive.

Talk to us about the image you are trying to create and we can suggest a finished product that blends with that image.

Ideal for Interior signage as office numbers, or office entryway signage.

3D graphic signs can also be used on the exterior of businesses or as building street numbers.

A Frame

Pedestrian or local traffic? Sidewalk signs create awareness.

Sidewalk signs or A Frame signs are ideal for catching the eye of passersby. Restaurants can use the blackboard version of the sign for creating interest in their changing specials. Shops can list services that might not be immediately obvious.

NOTE: Once you purchase the metal frame for an A Frame sign you can replace the coroplast sign insert as needed – for example if you’re having a sale, insert a sale sign with your logo.

SUGGESTION: Sidewalk signs are most effective when you start with your company name and condense your message to a few lines.


Super size your sign with a Banner

Banners create high visibility and are most effective when they contain a simple short message. Banners can be made with vinyl lettering (ideal for changing dates from year to year) or a full digital print.

We carry a wide selection of banner materials (substrates) – from paper to wide mesh vinyl material to finely woven specialty fabric. If you find the selection overwhelming we can offer practical advice and suggestions.

NOTE: Remember that the banner needs to be attached to something. We offer solutions for supporting the banner from banner stands to grommets (holes) in all four corners.

SUGGESTION: Banners can be reused for reoccuring events (eg. golf tournaments, charity events, annual corporate events). Just roll up the banner and store it.

Signs – Engraving

Engraved Door and nameplates

Engraved nameplates give recognition to the individuals in your company. They identify an individual’s “space” and help new employees and visitors associate names with faces.

At the Paper Sign Man we can create custom engraved nameplates for an individual or a large group. Give us a call. It’s often less expensive than you think to give recognition.

Name tags

Identify your staff when they’re interacting with the public with name tags. We offer magnetic or pin backed name tags in a wide range of colours. We can engrave single colour logos as well as names on the name tag.

Lamacoid industrial labeling

Lamacoid is an ideal material for industrial labelling. It is weather resistant – doesn’t fade in the sun; doesn’t run in the rain.

Need a different shape from square – we can do it.

Need a couple of tags this time and perhaps more later – we can do that too.


Custom Magnetic Signs – for a whole lot of reasons

Magnetic signs let your vehicle do double duty. It’s an economical way to advertise on your vehicle and at the same time you can remove it at any time. At the Paper Sign Man we produce a full range of truck magnetic signs and car magnetic signs. That means maximum flexibily for you! You can choose from vinyl letter and logos on a white background to full colour.

Magnetic business cards or logos. Printed on a lower gauge magnetic backing, these “business cards” are ideal for encouraging your customers to keep your phone number handy – on the fridge or filing cabinet.

Outdoor Signs

Signs – Outdoor Signs

The biggest difference between outdoor and indoor signs is that outdoor signs have to be weather resistant. The signs have to stand up to rain, snow, freezing temperatures AND sun. Is it OK if your sign fades a bit or do you need the colours to stay vibrant? We can laminate the sign to help keep the colours vibrant for longer.

At the Paper Sign Man we produce a broad spectrum of outdoor signs – A-frame signs3D Signsbanners, illuminated sign boxes, metal signs, magnetic signscoroplast and plywood signs.

  • magnetic signs (great when you use the vehicle for other purposes),
  • vinyl lettering (inexpensive, durable, difficult to remove) or
  • vinyl truck or car wraps (Wow! Let us install it for you).

Don’t forget to put a sign on your tailgate – and catch the attention of potential customers lined up behind you at a stop light.

Vinyl Lettering

Sign Material – Vinyl (Self Adhesive)

Single colour custom cut vinyl lettering or shapes can be applied to any sign material – such as coroplastSintra, plastic, metal signs, cars or trucks. If your sign is backed with coroplast or sintra, with vinyl lettering, the lettering can be removed and updated.

Our print technology also allows us to create full colour vinyl signs – which can be used as car wraps, window signs or applied to any backing.

Vinyl is durable, weather resistant, inexpensive and flexible.

We carry two types of self adhesive vinyl:

  • life expectancy of 3-5 years
  • life expectancy of 8 years

We also carry a removable vinyl, with a low tack adhesive – which makes it easy to remove. This type of sign is one-time use only and is ideal for use in promotions – think car dealerships.

Removable vinyl is close but not quite right? We also have static cling vinyl – ideal for use indoors for promotions where the original surface must remain in it’s original state (doesn’t leave a tacky residue). Examples include store windows, or large flat walls.
