"I submitted an order for custom 4" lettering from the
on August 26, 2014. The company took it upon itself to change the order from 4" lettering to" upper and lower case lettering. When I contacted the company and informed them I was not satisfied with the order, the owner,
Kivimagi, gave me the run around.
claimed not to understand my definition of "capital" letters and stated that industry standard called for the company to provide upper and lower cased letters. I reminded
that my order specifically stated that all letters were supposed to be 4" and
continued to ignore the mistake.
ignored my correspondence, claiming not to understand what I was communicating to him. He added insult to injury be stating that he would provide a discount on redoing the order by giving me half off to redo the order if I would pay for shipping. I refused
's "offer" and stated that I should not be held responsible for a mistake his company made. I demanded that
make the order right.
refused to admit the mistake. I finally filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau in Minnesota and again,
continued with the stance that he did nothing wrong. This time with the BBB involved, his offer changed from redoing it at a cost of half off to me, plus shipping to redoing the order if I would pay for the shipping. I refuse to pay any further money for an order that should have been done right to begin with. If
wants to make this customer happy, he'll do what is right and redo the order as it was originally submitted, 4" lettering, not what he claims to be "industry standard." I cannot in good faith recommend this company to future customers. My warning would be caveat emptor or buyer beware. If you do not specifically spell out exactly your order to
and the
, be advised
will change your order to what he thinks it should be. If you call him to task on it, be advised he'll never admit he made a mistake and be prepared to get a run around from him.
will patronize your intelligence and dare you to file a complaint. I am more than frustrated with the service of
. This was a special surprise for my granddaughter and now I have to find another vendor who can deliver what this company was paid to do in August, 2014.

"My wife called Distressed Out
to order a personalized wooden sign to hang on our front porch wall with our name and year established. Her call was immediately" answered by
Stauffenberg and he was very polite and professional as he listened to her request for the sign.
created a rustic wooden sign with hand painted scripted letters exactly the way my wife envisioned. She wanted this sign to hang on the wall of our front porch so it needed to be weather proof. The finish on the wood looks aged and (as the name implies) distressed. The sign was completed within several days and delivered to our door by
himself. At my wife's request, he added hardware to the back of the sign so she could hang it. We are very pleased with the sign, in fact my wife is already thinking about what she wants the next one to look like.

"The install guys were great but the office people were a nightmare...disorganized and argumentative. They charged my credit card without authorization and added on extra for??? When" I called them on it they backed down. They out and out lied to me several times and created a very difficult situation between my designer and me, telling the designer things that simply were not true. I had gone to them becasue a friend had used them for a similar job but now that I am more educated about the sign installation process and who is available to do it in Pittsburgh I would never go back. A small business person has enough aggravation without having to deal with people like this.

Angel came out right away to provide a bid. The bid was fair and they were willing to accommodate our scheduling needs. Their communication was great. The project was completed on time and it looks amazing.

Early communication with Clarity went well and they quickly pulled a schematic together for us and provided info for the sign permit application (in this instance I was preparing that to save money for a non-profit feline rescue). The installation of the building mounted sign went well, scheduling was an issue though and I had to push on them to get them to meet some important dates for our opening.
They made a mistake measuring the panels for the tower signage so they were not installed on time. They promised to redo these and have them installed in a few days, prior to our open house event. They did not meet this commitment and it took more than 10 days to get these installed, by then we had opened and were holding events that people were struggling to find without appropriate signage.
I was still giving them an opportunity for more work and asked about a decal sign for our front glass door. The owner told me that he would install it at no charge because of the error made on the tower signs. We were pleased with that resolution and asked if he could get that installed before our open house on 7-19. Today is 9-13 and the decal has still not been installed. The owner knows my cell phone number and does not answer my calls or return my messages. I have called at least 5 times to resolve this matter. The last time we actually talked I was told by the owner that the decal was made and he'd come over and personally install it that night.

Ordered Window Decal Clear Vinyl H: 36" x W: 36" with Inside Glass which turned out to be defective.
Addison Custom Signs Provider Name Locked
failed to refund or replace.
We ordered Window Decal Clear Vinyl H: 36" x W: 36" with Inside Glass for $181.42. The window decal arrived without any instructions or a number to call or a receipt.In any event, we had the decal installed by a professional due to lack of instructions and paid $75 to install by a professional in this field.
Right upon installation the decal showed blemishes which were obvious even before the decal was placed against the glass.
The blemishes include blemishes, bad haze, clouding, scratches, wrinkles, and blur.
We contacted signage.com and told them about the problem and offered to return it; they refused to have it returned and said to send them a picture. We explained to them exactly what the issues were.
We followed their instructions, and now they are refusing to address the matter honorably, and instead saying they would
want to us pay them another $145 to replace the defective decal.
We pleaded with them but they are steadfastly refusing to honor their obligation and correcting this problem which is clearly a defective product problem.
Awful product and awful customer service. We will never use them again. It seems they have other complaints as well see below:

I have used

in

for 8 years. During that time I have had 2 different offices in

. Having a small business (especially in
Addison Custom Signs Provider Name Locked
) is not an easy venture. It seems like everybody either has their hand in your pocket or slamming a door in your face. Since Excalibur is also a small business (in the beginning, there was just the owner,

) he has really done an outstanding job in helping me figure out what I needed and then implementing those ideas. He has always gone out of his way to show up on time, have the work done in a timely manner, charge a fair price for his work, and all the while exemplify professionalism and courtesy. And even though he is now more successful, has several employees, and has much bigger companies than mine to service, he is still very responsive to anything I need from him (no matter how small!!).

Our new sign is top notch quality. They met with me to get a feel of what type of theme that I was going for. Then provided different ideas. They are very artistic and creative. I now have a unique storefront sign that is classy and stands out in a crowd of other signs. Their creative ability provided me the theme that I was looking for and isn't just one of those computer printed signs.
