SUNation, a leading Ronkonkoma-based provider of solar energy services, developed a brand that was all about the sun. They first came to us in 2017 for a building sign that displays the pride the company has in their people and services. Signwave’s design challenge was to create something that looked great by day, but really […]

We’re always glad for the chance to collaborate with talented Interior Design professionals like Mary D’Andrea of MDA Designs, who recently brought us in on a High School Cafeteria renovation project. Mary shared her vision with us of a design based around the school color palette, the school’s mascot, and the school’s values. And the […]

Here’s a thought for your next building sign: dual-lit channel letters on a backer panel. Reliable and energy-efficient LEDs illuminate both the front and rear faces of each channel letter element. The front faces are made of translucent polycarbonate available in any color you choose, allowing your logo to be faithfully rendered. With the rear […]
The first impression that visitors and prospective tenants have of your condominium, gated community or other luxury estate development is the most impactful, and your property signage will help deliver the impression of refinement that your residents crave. An upgrade to illuminated entrance signage for your property may be just the kind of burnishing that […]
We recently were called upon to perform a building-wide upgrade of the commercial building signs at 15 Merrick Ave. in Merrick, NY. The customer was upgrading the entire look of the carpets, walls and fixtures of the building and wanted signage with a style and finish to reflect the standard of tenant that they attracted. […]
Recent breakthroughs in the manufacture of durable fabric media have opened up a new world of printed, washable fabric options for your signage. Custom printed fabrics do more than just decorate your office and shop–they integrate with your marketing plan in any budget to create interest and spur sales. While dye-sublimated printed fabric graphics are […]
There are so many types of signage that appear inside and outside of office buildings, commercial properties, hospitals and campuses. Each one gives an impression to all who work and visit there. What is your property signage saying? Let’s look at a few of the many ways your signage can help give your property appeal – or turn your visitors away.
Consider banners commemorating the reason for the gathering. A “Step And Repeat” photo backdrop, containing logos of the sponsoring organization or sponsors is a must for guests to be able to create their own mementoes, or to assure the right publicity. Custom printed table throws, easel signage, and posters are all elements to consider.
If you’ve been thinking of a full wrap for your Mobile Salon RV, branding your car, tricking out your motorcycle, or outfitting your fleet of box trucks – we’ve got some helpful tips for you. We’ve heard too many sad stories from our customers about ways they’ve been burned by other companies. So how do […]
Advertising your business on your car, truck or van generates an average of 600 impressions per mile driven. In heavy traffic and on busy roads, that number is easily quadrupled! Not to mention the additional awareness it generates while parked at your facility or customers’ locations. With advancements in materials science, and availability of latex printing technologies, vehicle graphics […]
After creating beautiful sandblasted plaques for their Administration Building, High School and podiums, the Malverne UFSD administration brought Signwave back to recognize their Middle School, Intermediate School and Elementary School for being awarded “Blue Ribbon” status….We created a similar design for all three schools to assure a unified look to their district.
Sandblasting is one of several techniques used to create beautiful dimensional signs that can stand up to the elements. For this project, a block of High Density Urethane (HDU) was sawn and routed to size and shape. A vinyl mask was created to block off those areas not to be abraded by the blasting material, and the material (“sand”) was selected to provide the proper texture and density.
The most popular option for lobby signs is to render the logo with dimensional letters and logo shapes. These can be fabricated from acrylic, PVC, metal, wood or various other materials. They can have various finishes – gloss or matte, metallic or clear, wood grain. The dimensional characters can be mounted flush to the wall, on spacers, or mounted to a backer panel made of a variety of material and shape choices. If your company logo includes thin, delicate lines, there are still dimensional options available. Logos can be routed, engraved or carved in relief – on metal, wood, acrylic or PVC.

If you have multiple entrances to your building, consult with Signwave of Suffolk County to find ways to make sure you are visible to the neighborhood and make sure that everyone knows which entrance to use.
Country Pointe, a distinctive Long Island community, needed to replace street signs that were faded and illegible at worst; pedestrian at best. The Board Of Directors was looking not just to replace the signage but to upgrade the look and feel of the suburban landscape. By the time they found Signwave, they were nearly exasperated. It had been hard to find a sign company that would take their vision seriously.
Design and materials compliment one another in this bright contemporary business sign. A glossy acrylic logo with dimensional lettering set the tone in the reception area for this forward-thinking company. We followed the contour of the gel-effect iconography to make it pop, with just the right color and contrast.
Designatronics, a designer and manufacturer of high quality mechanical components, recently consolidated its operations at 250 Duffy Ave., one of the largest industrial buildings in Hicksville.
With frequent customer visits to their plant, and scores of deliveries every week, they needed point of entry signs that would show visitors and vendors where they are, and which entrances to use.
Signwave handled the entire installation project from permits to polish. If you’re consolidating, relocating, or establishing a new location, ask us what you need to know to make it easy to navigate your business property access.
Multiple entrances. Long corridors that all look the same. Ongoing renovations and organizational changes. How does a patient or visitor know which way to go? This is more than a matter of convenience in a healthcare facility. Visitors are already in a state of stress if they or a loved one are seeking treatment. It’s […]
Have you ever gone down the wrong corridor in a hospital or office building? It’s frustrating, right? Imagine how it feels if your vision is impaired, if you are having trouble walking, or if you are already suffering from anxiety. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) aims not only to ensure against discrimination, but also […]
For retailers, compelling signage makes all the difference in attracting customers all year round. Depending upon the location and the type of store, you can offer a new promotion every month – and signage designed with changing sales seasons in mind can make sure that there’s always a relevant offer on hand. Let shoppers know […]
