"Berkeley Sign Company was a huge help in establishing our logo on College Avenue in Berkeley. Their work was precise and professional and they met all our expectations about timing and price. Getting Mrs. Dalloway's up and running was a stressful time so we really appreciated the attention to our signs, both interior and exterior."

Steve Vigeant began Berkeley Signs in the early 1980s as he repainted faded signs from the back of his station wagon. The business has evolved into a full service sign shop with an emphasis on complete storefront design packages. Berkeley Signs features classic workmanship utilizing a wide variety of sign making techniques - from traditional hand lettering, gold leaf and mural pictorials to precision-cut metal, digital imaging and innovative materials.
Our signs are highly visible and are seen daily by thousands of Bay Area residents. We maintain successful relationships with hundreds of local businesses, non-profit institutions and numerous municipalities. Our clients range from small retail shop owners to the larger industrial and corporate sectors. In 2006 Berkeley Signs is featured in the internationally distributed Sign Craft magazine.

Our first priority is to give thoughtful consideration to every project, large or small. We typically begin the sign making process with a site visit to gain a broader understanding of the client’s needs and goals.

We value client input and always strive to integrate client’s ideas with our own vision. We are open to the creative possibilities that arise from working with others and welcome the opportunity to partner with designers, architects, manufacturers and sign experts, as needed, to create distinctive and highly effective quality signage.

After an initial meeting, a price and design proposal via fax or e-mail will be provided. Once a pricing structure and general concept have been determined, we will invoice for a 50% deposit. Sketches, colors, samples and permit proposals will be generated, as necessary, to create a clear understanding of the project.

Our desire is to create a finished product that exceeds customer expectations. A winning sign strategy will increase revenue and enhance prestige and value for years.
