    Good morning all,

    First post here! Been browsing for a bit though.

    Has anyone used "Sign Fab Wholesale Sign Manufacturer" before?
    We recently got a catalog in the mail from them but I have not heard
    of them before.

    Product seems good from what I see.

    Opinions on overall experience if you have used them?

    Thank you!

    We use them for channel letters and such because the product is good and since we are close we get free delivery.

    We have used them. The last time I had a set of channel letters though, the trimcap job was very very sloppy, with the bent edges not being pushed into the corners enough and vinyl not all the way to the edge of the faces. Other times have been great. I would ask them to spec anything other than General Formulations if you are doing printed vinyl on the faces, as I've seen that stuff roll up from the edges on multiple signs...
    Direct Sign Wholesale does good work, but only cookie cutter channel letters, nothing special. Used to be a place called The channel letter company, but they rolled up with Faces some time ago. We used to order from them often but haven't been seeing the bowser smile in a while.

    Channel letters are awesome. I reccomended them for a wholesale client of mine and the box sign that they made was terrible, must be some Missouri thang, because windload on the coastal area would rip this right off. 1/4 of 1/4" aluminum with a 1/2" steel all thread is not going to last. Sign Fab has not shown engineering on this sign because the design is flawed. Sign Fab said we my client should have specified windload requirements. I sent diagrams to Sign Fab showing how to make strong boxes and toshowed then making stick lighting is better than 2 single pans on a box sign as it also uses less leds. Yall be the judge. I say the sign will fall down, oh and I broke one of their supports. Wish I knew how to load images. Doh!

    They are not worth the time. I have never had a good experience with them at all. There are way too many channel letter shops out there then to have to deal with their poo. I demand quality. ;)
