As the coordinator of the search for a new sign for our school, I did a considerable amount of research into different signs and sign companies. Our group selected Stewart Signs over all of the companies considered.
The first, and probably the main reason, that we selected the Stewart sign was quality. After we inspected several different companies' signs in the area we were disappointed with most! The school name and background on the sign from one your national competitors had faded significantly in the few years since the sign was installed. In Ohio, we don't get sunshine with the same intensity as some parts of the country, but apparently there had been enough to significantly fade the painted graphics on the other company's sign. The Stewart signs that we saw were in good repair and did not show the signs of weathering that the other signs did.
The second, and still major, reason was our Stewart salesperson. He was very interested in helping us achieve our goal of increased communication. The other company seemed more interested in taking our order than in helping us bridge the communication gap with our parents.
We would encourage other schools that lack an effective outdoor sign to consider investing in new sign. They are a fantastic way to communicate with parents. We have already had other schools in the area ask us about our sign, and when they do we encourage them to work with Stewart Signs, a truly concerned company that provides a top of the line product.
