YOU CAN USE THIS TOOL TO GIVE US AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE GUIDANCE AS YOU WANT. WE WILL DESIGN THE SIGN USING THE IDEAS YOU GIVE US USING THIS TOOL
Our Design Tool was created to help you get your ideas across with as little or as much detail as you would like to provide. Use this tool to look through our Libraries of Art and view the image next to Border Color Tiles that you select. We even have an upload tool if you have art you would like us to use or even to send us a picture of your house. Our design team is great with color recommendations to match your paint.
Click on each tab below for a short description of it's use
Here you will find backgrounds from the many signs we have already created. You have the option to preview each image in the window at top next to the border tiles. This will give you the opportunity to see how the background looks next to the border colors you select using the next tab - "Border Colors". You can select and comment on as many backgrounds as you like. For example, you may like the sunset in one background option and perhaps the lighthouse in another. If so, select and comment on both. Remember this is only an IDEA PAGE, not the final design.
Here you have two selections to make. Border Color Group #1 and Group #2. If you only want one color on the border simply select the same color tile for each group. Selecting different colors for each group will give you more of a checkerboard look.
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Enter in the name of your Beach Home or what you want the sign to say. You can change the font and font color and see it preview in the box below. If you are unsure what to select here simply select “Artist Choice” and we will make recommendations during the concept design process. A color or font selection is easily changed prior to fabrication. It will also look much different with outlining and beveling. If you don’t have a name for your house, check out our “Beach Home Name Ideas” page.
Here you can view additional images from our Address Signs library, Finished Signs Library and Foreground Image Library. This is also where you can upload an image to use or for color comparison / recommendations. Please note, if we don’t have a foreground image that you want please let us know in the” additional details” box on the “Design Summary” tab.
This tab is pretty important since it gives us a starting point for the overall sign dimensions. It also provides you with the bottom-line cost of the sign (less the $75.00 deposit). Each glass section measures 6.75” x 10”. The sections can be mounted in a horizontal or vertical fashion and they can be set end to end as well as stacked. Each sign comes with a 2” border around the glass and border tiles. This can be adjusted if necessary. Just let us know in the “additional details” box on the “Design Summary” tab.
We provide a checklist on this tab for your review. Remember, you do not have to make selections from every tab. Your selections are only ideas for the final design and you will have as much opportunity as you like to make changes during the design process. A summary of your selections is also displayed on the upper right hand corner of the page if you are using a PC or tablet.
We will ship your custom sign or address within 2 weeks of acceptance of any artist proof. If there is no proof necessary you can expect delivery of your address within this 2 week period.

Common Questions About Our Beach Sign Customizer:
How many of the options should I fill out on the beach sign page?
In general, as many or as few as you would like! We provide this tool to get your creative juices flowing, and to ensure that we have a good idea of what you might have in mind as we design your sign. We don't expect you to design your sign yourself - our designer will work closely with you to ensure it looks exactly how you'd like it to.
Why are there so many options in the "Additional Libraries" tab?
We wanted to provide you with as many opportunities as possible to get an idea of how your sign should look. At the same time, we don't want to overwhelm you with possible choices, so we tucked a few options out of the way. We can draw inspiration from any number of sources, including our premade art and sign libraries - you can even upload one of your own images for us to use as inspiration!
