Sign Effectz, Inc.

1827 W Glendale Ave
Milwaukee, WI 53209


The beginning of Sign Effectz, Inc. was quite humble. The company was literally started in the owner's garage. We evolved over time into one of Milwaukee's premier creators of cutting-edge business signage. It required several years of proving ourselves as a reliable and knowledgeable builder and installer of custom electronic signage. It also required us to bring service benefits and economic benefits to our core customer base of real estate developers, architects and property managers. This year, we celebrate 20 years in business. We are thrilled to be a custom sign manufacturer that blends creativity with technology to provide you with visually effective and physically durable signage. We have experience in all types of signs, including exterior building signage, outdoor monument signs, L.E.D. channel letter signs, sign service and sign repair. Anything is possible at Sign Effectz, Inc. when it comes to exterior and interior signage! No job is too big. We have a wide range of manufacturing methods at our disposal and an extensive knowledge of materials. It takes the mystery out of material selection for you; we get it right the first time! What We Offer We offer a variety of sign-related services in addition to manufacturing, which makes life more convenient for our customers. It reduces paperwork and transaction costs as well as eliminates the hassle of dealing with multiple vendors. In addition to Custom Sign Fabrication, look to Sign Effectz for Sign Maintenance & Repair, Installation, Turnkey Projects, Prototyping & Testing and Community Approvals.
