From designing, permitting, and manufacturing, to delivery or installation, we’ve got you covered when it comes to quality custom signs in Maine and northern New England.

High-quality signage is the key to promoting your brand and growing your business in Portland. You can use it to raise awareness of your business by showcasing an original logo, color scheme, and messaging that can attract attention. All you need is the right company to make your signage in Portland.


SignSmith has designed custom signage for local businesses for more than 25 years. We always use high-quality materials to build our signs, including plastic, premium wood, and metal. The graphic designs are printed onto 3M high-performance vinyl material to ensure their longevity and removability.   


These materials are both durable and weather-resistant to enable long-term use. These traits are particularly important for outdoor signage because they will be constantly exposed to wind, rain, airborne debris, and other outdoor environmental conditions.


Our range of signage products include:


-   Vehicle Wraps

-   Menu Boards

-   Wayfinding Signs

-   Safety Signs

-   Sidewalk Signs

-   Post Signs

-   Yard Signs

-   Banners

-   Posters

-   Floor Graphics

-   And more!


We collaborate with our clients to bring their signage concept to life. You will get to share ideas and make suggestions throughout the signage design process. Once you are happy with the final design, we will proceed to print it onto the 3M high-performance vinyl material.


SignSmith can deliver and install our custom signage at any commercial property in Portland. Contact us at 207-450-7667 or email us at for more information on our custom signage creation services and how they can benefit your business.

They convey your brand’s unique image and serve to display your company’s important info 24/7.

A professionally designed and manufactured sign sends the message that your business is serious about what you do.

What is the most effective sign for my business?

The effectiveness of your custom sign depends on the type of business that you own, your location, and the types of services offered through your company. Contractors, distributors and other work-on-location type companies will benefit most from car wraps and vehicle lettering. Restaurants, salons and retail sales businesses need eye-catching storefront signs and A-frame signs to advertise specials. Business centers use directory signs to showcase the many individual businesses in their establishment. Hospitals, retailers and office buildings utilize wayfinding signs to direct customers throughout their facility. From parking to purchasing, a well-designed directional sign ensures that your customer can shop efficiently, locating the products and services that most fit their needs. Contact us to explore the types of signs that will work best for your business.

What information should my sign display?

With the advancement of digital print technology, the possibilities are endless. Your signs and graphics can reflect the name of your brand, your custom logo, information about the types of products and services you offer, as well as operating hours and contact information. You can even boost employee morale with motivational quotes or creative images that enhance your office’s interior design.

What are the three most important types of retail signs?

Every retail business needs signs. The top three signs for every retail business include:

Storefront Sign

This sign should be simple and easy to read from a distance. Do include your business name and/or logo. Don’t include extras, like your phone number or address on this sign.

A-frame Sign

Also called a Sandwich Board or Sidewalk sign, A-frame signs offer visibility at a level that passers-by can easily see. You can include contact information on this sign, as well as advertise sales or other important information that you want to share with potential customers.

Window Graphics

Don’t forget about your windows! They offer a view into your store, and enhancing them with messaging or graphics that bring the vibe of your store to the street will ensure that your message gets to the customers you’re looking to attract. Invite them into your store by advertising sales, promotions or events.

How do I care for my custom sign?

Most outdoor business signs can be cleaned with a mild soap and rinsed with water to maintain their appearance. They should be inspected periodically for wear and tear, and any peeling paint should be removed and repainted. Indoor signs can be wiped with a damp cloth. Car wraps and vehicle lettering have special cleaners that will extend their life. We do not recommend pressure washing for any type of sign. For more information on how to properly maintain your sign, contact one of our experts here. We offer maintenance, repair and sign face replacement services for many types of custom business signs.
