During the proofing process of a interchangeable letter board we are able to offer in situ proofingdamon collins in situ4

Sometimes sign makers struggle to get across to potential customers how a sign is actually going to look and feel once in place outside. It’s one thing seeing a proof on screen but it can be a very different story once the sign has been erected and is in ‘situ’. A changeable sign with moving letters is no different, so we offer in situ proofing wherever position. All we require is a shot of the proposed location taken on your smart phone.  We will then take this picture and drop in the proof of the sign in perspective.  The more shots you can take the better. This will allow us to pick and choose the most appropriate picture to use

Here’s a little check list if emailing over a file:

  • Keep the file size of your pictures to around 500 KB each , most smart phones have a file size option prior to emailing off.
  • Avoid taking a shot into direct sun light
  • Don’t crop your pictures, we will make those adjustments our end.
  • Look at picture first, is it sharp, if out of focus try again!

If you haven’t any pictures of an existing sign you want to replace with a changeable sign, you may have shots of your club house wall, restaurant sign or School Buildings online we can use. Have a think, where we might be able to find these? Sports clubs, schools and Sports Bars often have hundreds of pictures available for us to borrow. Here’s a list where we might find them.
