At Crowder Signs we specialize in the finest commercial signage at fair prices.  With over fifty years of dedicated commitment  to producing the highest standard in signs, our reputation is our most valued asset.  From old world craftsmanship to the latest in technology we are able to apply the best techniques and tools to the appropriate materials for an attractive yet durable sign.    Signs are not the only service we provide as the wide range of skills and tools required to run a full service shop allow us to do a bit of most everything.

    We still use techniques like glass smalt, gold leaf, hand carving along with hand lettering. In addition to making new signs using old techniqes we are adept at preservation of aging historic flat signs, plaques, shields, wall paintings and more needing rescue. Once lost historical signs can seldom be replaced with a period correct sign. We still carve signs from common, exotic and premium woods. Anyone can buy a computer, Chinese printer, rent a storefront and call it a sign shop. Give them a handfull of lettering brushes with can of paint or jig saw and some wood then see the result. If your project needs to stand out from "average" or my least favorite term "industry standard" we can achieve your goal using techniques from the eighteenth century or latest in computer driven machinery and printers. When you want something special, durable, attractive and made locally (not ordred from online wholeseller by a storefront) we are your sign supplier.

    We offer Three Dimensional CAD-CAM routing of a variety of materials including wood, aluminum, brass, acrylic sheeting and other materials.   One of our most popular services is outdoor rated thermal-resin digital printing.  Using the latest equipment we are able to print your image on 3-M adhesive materials for outdoor use on almost anything.  We do in-house screen printing from printed circuits up to 4 ft. x 10 ft. multi-colored signs.

    Our lighted sign department can handle almost anything including design, manufacture installation and service work.  All of our lighted signs are built to exacting standards and our channel letter sets are as good or better than any others on the market.  We even offer LED message panels that are U.S.A. manufactured with warranties up to five years.  Our service department can keep your current lighted program operating to its fullest potential.  The only lighted product we do not offer is neon but we have many safer yet still attractive alternatives to this product.

    Crowder Signs is a full service, in-house sign shop.  This is not a 600 square foot retail storefront.  No job is too small or too large, we have the experience to manufacture any signage you may need.  Our facility maintains a full metal fabrication area, woodworking shop, paint facilities and more: all under one roof.  Traditional hand lettered signs are still within our capabilities.  We are currently Gainesville, Georgia's only full service "in house" sign shop. Most of our competitors have basically an oversized inkjet printer and a list of wholesellers for all other work. We screen print many political signs from small town to statewide govorner size campaings. Politicians tend to prefer to buy from local vendors but what most do not realize is wehn they walk in a storefront sign vendor they are getting signs that were printd in Mexico by lowest bid wholsale company then shipped to the vendor appearing to be a locally produced product.

    The sign trade is seeing a big return to traditional techniques from the eighteenth century, nineteenth century, 1950's styling and a huge return to the hand lettered sign. Our carving tools have not accumulated any rust and our lettering brushes, quills and striping brushes are just as supple as they were in the 1050s, 1960s and 1070s even though we were the first shop to have a sign making computer outside the city limits of Atlanta in the state of Georgia and first to own a scan and cut system in the southeast. We embraced digital imaging from the beginning to always stay competative, give clients what they want but never quit making signs using the traditional older techniques of the ages.

    Our goal is to develop relationships with our clients that last for decades.  One time sales are nice but satisfying a client so that they continue to use or services for years is paramount to our business model. One of our specialties is commercial real estate signage.  We can develop and maintain sign programs for any size real estate firm.   If you would like to discuss opening a commercial account please e-mail or fax a brief description of your needs and we will review your information.  We accept new real estate accounts whenever it is in the best interest of all parties. You can also take a virtual tour of our facilities.
