Build A Sign Review (Custom Library Sign)

I'm reviewing something a little different today. I don't normally do many product reviews, and only do those that mesh well with Word Spelunking's bookish atmosphere, so when I was given the opportunity to review a product from Build A Sign I knew just the thing to share with all my fellow booknerds....

First, some info about this award winning company:

Their vision:
To empower expression around the world.

The need for signage has evolved considerably since the ancient Egyptians created the first signboards. But the process of ordering and producing signage and other custom printed products has always been a complicated and time consuming one. In 2005, we decided it was time for some revolutionary changes. We combined sign-making expertise, innovative technology, and exceptional customer service to transform a centuries-old industry for today's customer. We created®, an entirely new kind of custom printing company.
We've made it simple for anyone to quickly and easily design, proof and order high quality, custom printed products. Our customers run the gamut from small business owners and non-profit organizations to franchises and major corporations in virtually every industry. We serve real estate agents, construction companies, retailers, event and conference planners, church and school groups -- anyone wanting to make a statement. Whether for business or for fun, we're empowering expression around the world.
Our easy-to-use, comprehensive online interface gives customers complete control of the design and ordering process from start to finish, including text, colors, design elements, fonts and graphics. Use our exclusive design templates and graphic elements to build your product from scratch, or upload your own graphics, images and designs. Unlike most custom printing companies, you won't be hit with a set up fee for artwork. Whether you need a single banner or hundreds of bumper stickers, we've got a wide range of sizes and top quality materials --all at affordable prices. Best of all, you can complete your order at any time, on any day, from anywhere in the world.

I  knew exactly what kind of design I wanted and while browsing their selection of signs I found the the perfect one to customize. I chose the 9"x12" Aluminum Custom Sign and came up with this:

Sign reads: 
Aeicha's Library
shhh...booknerds are reading

My niece, Aeicha, has quite the growing library (I wonder who her book gifter is, hmm?! lol) and I have wanted to get a cute, one of a kind library sign for her for a long time, and I'm so in love with the way this one turned out! Customizing the template was so easy and literally took only minutes. Build A Sign offers a large collection of templates, clip art, fonts, and colors to use and you an even upload your own images. I worried that the colors wouldn't look as good as they did online, but they are very bright and eye-catching. My picture really doesn't do that bold pink, green, and blue proper justice! 

The image came out exactly as I designed it, with no imperfections. The aluminum material is durable, but lightweight, perfect for hanging on the wall. Our sign was printed and shipped (free shipping on all orders) super fast as well.  This sign is such an awesome, unique gift that my niece will be  able to treasure for a long time.

With such a large variety of signs and products to customize, including flyers, business cards, car magnets, and other accessories,  Build A Sign can easily meet the needs of both companies and individuals. I loved how our library sign turned out so much that I'm thinking about getting one of the big banners for Aeicha's upcoming birthday!
