Graphic Services, Project Management and Engineering Services

While many customers come to us with their artwork complete and ready to print, others do not have internal graphic designers or engineers to design their signs. Gopher Sign Company has both design and engineering capability available to assist you in bringing your sign ideas to life at a modest charge.

If you have in-house or contracted artists developing your signs, we have Prepress Guidelines available in the PDF Documents section of our website to assist you in designing and saving your files in a manner that assures they will print.

Upon receipt of your graphic files, we pre-flight the files to make sure all graphic elements have been converted to CMYK, all fonts are outlined, bleeds accounted for, live areas correctly proportioned, and all images included. Once the files are complete, the project management process begins (See Project Workflow Process Overview for a detailed summary of our project management process.)


Personalized customer service is a trademark at Gopher Sign Company. It begins with your first contact being a real person on the telephone helping you find the resources you need, vs. the all-too-common answering machine that most companies offer. Our people are dedicated to delivering the quality, service and technical support that customers have come to appreciate.
