F.A.Q. for our "New England Style" signs
See why we use no wood in any of ours signs HERE. The small, large, jumbo and magnum size “smooth surface” signs are made using a computer cut high quality printed outdoor vinyl transfer applied to a 1/2″ thick PVC signboard. This is then covered with a clear laminate vinyl to add further protection. The Grand and Pro size signs use a computer cut high quality printed outdoor vinyl transfer applied to your choice of a composite aluminum 1/4″ thick signboard (Alumacorr) or a strong 1″ thick solid PVC signboard. These are rigid, strong and lightweight and handle all weather conditions very well. They will not rot, crack, splinter, warp or peel like painted wood does. We use the highest quality 8-year high performance vinyl (min. expected life span) on all signs. You also have the option to purchase the correct stainless steel hanging/mounting hardware in our sign accessories section.
Most New England Style “smooth surface” signs are shipped in approx 2-3 weeks on average from the date of your proof approval. Larger more elaborate signs will require some extra time. For our carved style signs, typically allow at least 4+ weeks production time (depending on current workload). If you need your sign faster, please let us know when you order. Depending on our production schedule at the time, we may be able to accommodate RUSH orders (extra charges may apply).

Yes, after your order is placed our graphic artist will design your sign and then email you a proof for your review/approval (within a few days of your order). The sign proofs you receive will reflect the options you chose while designing/ordering your sign. Changes can be made to your initial proof/layout if needed. We want you to be happy with your sign layout before we build your sign. After we get proof approval from you your payment is then due.
All of our largest sign products that do ship by freight are considered “curbside delivery,” which means that the driver will unload the shipment at the end of your driveway or the entryway of your building. They will usually only enter your property if they feel there is enough room to navigate their truck. Items difficult to move from the truck may require your assistance. Read more info on “What to do when your sign arrives by the freight/shipping company.”
Freight Delivery: Let us know at the time you place your order if you live on a narrow or winding road that may be difficult for a full-size truck to navigate. The freight company may need to switch to a smaller truck, and advance notice will save you a lot of time and money and make delivery go more smoothly. If you do not have access to a loading dock, it’s in your best interest to get additional people to assist you when delivery arrives. Any additional freight handling charges (above and beyond what was initially quoted) are the responsibility of the customer. e.g., lift gate charge, residential delivery charge, hold and redelivery charge, inside delivery, etc.. If you’d like your sign order delivered with a truck that has a lift gate on the back (to ease in unloading it) this will be $75. extra and must be chosen and paid for PRIOR to us shipping you your sign.
Please contact us for more info.

EZSignsOnline LLC reserves the right to require visual documentation of the claim before assuming any responsibility under the provisions of this warranty. Removing and re-installing repaired or replacement parts is the responsibility of the owner. In some cases, instructions will be provided for customer making minor repairs as necessary, to avoid long delays of damage inspection required by carrier (a lot of times this is faster and easier than repacking the sign and sending it back to the shop for repairs, and then reshipping back to customer). This warranty covers normal use and service. Slight warping of some of the signboard materials we use is considered normal (typically it is a result of the sun warming up one side of the signboard more than the other, most materials expand and contract like this. [aka..Thermal Expansion]).

Customer will be required to keep ALL packaging materials that came with sign for possible inspection by the delivery company insurance inspector if needed. It is also advised to not mount or display your sign until any and all carrier inspections have been completed (otherwise they may assume the damage was done while handling the sign well after delivery). Original shipping method/cost is not refundable.
We cannot give refunds for any of our custom sign orders simply because you changed your mind after you received it. All signs are custom built to order. It is up to you to make sure you are ordering the size and type of sign you want from the start. We do our best to accommodate customers with delivery time frames/deadlines, however you the customer must let us know when ordering/approving your order if you do have a deadline you need your sign by.
