BuildASign.com is a custom sign design company that provides you with the tools you need to make customized products in as little five minutes. They’ve been in business for over five years and they have every type of signage you can think of, from vinyl banners to custom decals. They have over 20 different types of custom signs that come in up to 10 different sizes.
I was first introduced to BuildASign.com through an email from a fellow named Jared, who stumbled upon to the blog while researching the TaylorMade Rossa Corza Ghost Putter. After a couple of emails, Jared invited me to try out the process, come up with a custom golf sign design and he’d send me a few to check out and give away.
I spent a good amount of time at BuildASign.com trying to decide which sign to use and I eventually settled on a 4″ x 4″ custom golf decal.
It’s a three step process to create the custom sign.
Step 1: Choose a Template.
The design process begins with you choosing a template to work off of and although I don’t have an exact number, I’d say there’s over 200 to choose from. The templates are categorized into various themes, such business, events, non-profit, sports, etc…
For my custom golf creation, I began with the sport decals.
Step 2: Customize it.
Once you choose a category, you then select a template to customize. I began with the “I’d rather be playing” golf decal. Below is what the customize your design page looks like. Notice you can upload your own image or add an image from their existing clipart library. You can also choose the size and color of the text and place it anywhere in the decal.
From here, I removed all the existing text and golf images and uploaded the new OGB Logo. After that, I spent quite a long time figuring out what text I should add and finally came up with the custom golf design below.
A cool feature about this custom decal page I really enjoyed is the ability to share the design with others. I suppose it’s pretty common place nowadays to have a share button, but I was able to post it on Facebook & Twitter and get everyone’s feedback.
Step 3: Pick your size & material
Probably the easiest step of all, choose the material (static cling, aluminum, clear plastic, etc..), choose the size and choose the quantity. As with most printing companies, the more you order, the cheaper it gets. For example, 1 decal is $11.07 whereas 100 decals are $2.94 per.
* Step 4: Wait for your package to arrive (an ogb addendum)
Once the order was placed, it took two-three days to produce and ship the decals. Once shipped it only took four business days to arrive.
The custom golf decals I created were exactly what I had designed. Good quality material, with some vigorous rubbing on the ink the image held strong.
Now, I would be remiss in my duties as a blogger if I didn’t mention the customer service I received from BuildASign.com. Just to clarify, the products I received were freebies. When I was going through the design process, I created two versions of the decal. Due to my numerous emails, the wrong decal was sent to production and consequently sent in the mail. When I received them, I was a bit crestfallen because it wasn’t quite the awesome custom golf decal you see above.
Once they received word that the wrong decal had been produced, they insisted on getting the right ones created and sent to me. Pretty impressive customer service, especially since they didn’t make a dime off the interaction. I know what you’re thinking, of course they’d hook you up, you’re writing a review of the decals. I can see your point, but I think it’s worth noting that I would’ve given them a fair shake even if they hadn’t sent the correct decal, it was most likely my fault the wrong ones went into production first.
When you get a chance, take a look at BuildASign.com, they’ve got a pretty cool thing going.
If you like the decal, I’ll be more than happy to send you one free-o-charge, just send me an email with your mailing address and i’ll get one out to you! I have one stipulation though, once you receive the decal and affix it to your vehicle or wherever, you must take a picture and post it up on the OGB FB Fanpage. Deal?
