This is a basic guide for replacing existing sign plastic "faces" for different types of signs. If your sign isn't covered here, contact us (below) with a photo of your existing sign.

You will need:
A measuring tape.
A camera (or use your smartphone camera) to photograph a few details.
You may need an assistant to help with a ladder if the sign is above reach and with writing down the dimensions discussed below.

Let's begin.
Always take safety precautions when working around sharp sign cabinets, plastic and on a ladder.
To direct you to the right kind of sign replacement or new printed sign face, we need a few things.
Here's a handy checklist.

 

 

PRINT THIS OUT IF THAT'S EASIER!

_____ Height of sign plastic in inches

_____ Width/length of plastic (add all dimensions if not rectangular)

_____ Does the sign have a letter track or a business name? (circle)

_____ If it has a letter track, measure the printed letter height and clear plastic height.

_____ Kind of plastic sign face: (_____ flat | _____ pan formed | _____ Ridged)

Photos we need (optional but helpful)

_____ The entire sign (have the sun behind you if at all possible)

_____ Closeup of the sign face track (where the sign plastic slides into the frame) with a measurement of the sign plastic thickness.

_____ If it has letters, photo of letter.

That's it. You can send this in with the details we need and we'll watch for the photos (send photos to plasticpix@mydiysigns.com).

See this informative short article for some of the different kinds of sign faces available and how to tell them apart.
