Extended Message Area Signs

Enjoy the maximum amount of space for your changeable letter messages with our Extended Message Area signs. When you’re making longer announcements or need larger letter sizes, these models make the most of what you have to say. You can even opt to forego your sign’s identification area entirely: Our logo-free Courier model features all letters, all the time.

Each sign comes standard with a locking vandal cover made of the same graffiti- and UV-resistant Makrolon SL® polycarbonate found on our sign faces. These vandal-resistant covers prevent the theft of letters and their rearrangement into inappropriate messages while protecting your sign from the elements.

  • Locking vandal cover made from Makrolon SL® opens a full 90°
  • Glide & Lock© support system keeps open vandal cover safely in place

Locking Vandal Cover
Unfortunately, the stealing of letters or their rearrangement into inappropriate messages is a very real concern for today’s sign owner. The embarrassment and added expense incurred because of vandals can limit the effectiveness and enjoyment of your new sign. Stewart’s vandal cover gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your message will be displayed as intended until you—and only you—are ready to change it.

Hinged at the top with locks across the bottom, the cover opens and stays open at 90 degrees, allowing you to change your message easily and safely. Instead of gas struts, which typically fail with repeated use, Stewart signs use our proprietary Glide & Lock© system (where applicable) to hold the vandal cover in place. Better yet, these specialized prop arms are built to last the lifetime of your changeable letter sign.

features_changeable_vandalcover

The vandal cover is made from the same graffiti- and vandal-resistant Makrolon SL® polycarbonate as your sign’s face. Makrolon SL’s built-in UV protection prevents the yellowing and cracking commonly seen with standard polycarbonate and Plexiglas® covers. And unlike sealed vandal cover systems, Stewart’s vandal cover allows air to circulate at strategic points along your sign’s letter tracking. This prevents condensation, mildew and mold from building up on the cover and impairing the readability of your message.


features_changeable_letters2Included Letters & Storage Case
Every Stewart changeable letter sign comes with a full set of letters, numbers and punctuation plus a storage case. All characters are injection-molded and silkscreened in black.

Designed expressly for changeable letter signs, our proprietary Stewart font is optimized for both readability and maximum message length. As an added bonus, we’ll provide you with 30 more free letters of your choice once you’ve received and used your sign!


features_changeable_rivetsRiveted Letter Tracking
Unlike the tracking on other institutional signage, Stewart’s letter tracking isn’t glued onto the sign face. Why? Glues and other adhesives often fail or discolor with repeated exposure to sunlight.

Instead, our tracking is attached to our signs using white metal rivets, giving you a clean, professional look that lasts. White rivets blend well with white tracking and will not be seen from a distance.
