Company FAQ's

What signs will I need for my project?

The place to start is the Fusion "Sign Types and Uses"? section of our web site. This provides a good overview of required standard signs. Secondly, get Takeform involved. Our project technicians will evaluate your facility and advise on any code-required signage and make recommendations on wayfinding. (Project evaluations are free of charge. Takeform will provide complete design, wayfinding and programming on a fee basis. Your sales person will provide you with a quote for these services if required.) Further contact Takeform or your local sales representative and request a copy of "Get it on the Wall". This is a do-it-yourself guide that helps you identify the signage you require.

What is Takeform's warranty?

All Takeform products are warranted for five years against workmanship and material defects.

What do you need to evaluate a project?

Provide us with floor plans. We can use a hard copy or email files in a .dxf, .dwg or .pdf format. (See our section on digital file submissions for more details.)

Can you incorporate a logo or identity on the signs?

Yes, we have many ways of incorporating your brand in the signage. Often, the solution is printing your identity on the inserts in a graphically sensitive manner. We are also able to apply logos to the laminate portion of the sign utilizing our applique process. A third option is to engrave your identity on the face of the sign. The process chosen depends on the logo or graphic. Email your logo, and we will advise as to the optimum solution.

Can I use Fusion in outdoor applications?

Fusion is not recommended for exterior use. Fusion is very durable and chamber tested to endure extreme climate conditions for both temperature and humidity. It, however, is not designed for exterior use. We do approve it for limited exposure situations such as covered parking structures. If you have exterior signs on your project, Takeform can provide an alternate solution.

What is your standard lead-time?

Takeform's standard lead-time is four weeks for manufacturing. Please keep in mind that additional time is required to get the job ready for manufacturing including the preparation of location plans, message schedules, design and approvals. Please get us involved a minimum of eight weeks in advance of the desired installation date.

Standard Fusion collections show four directory options. Are there more to choose from?

In addition to the standard Fusion directories, there is a wide selection of directory options within the Adapt System of components.

Do you manufacture donor recognition?

Yes, our designers are able to design custom solutions with the Adapt component system. Every donor project is a one-of-a-kind. Adapt allows us to create unique solutions utilizing special materials and imagery. Please contact your sales associate.

Does Takeform fabricate custom signage?

Typically no. Takeform understands that there are special situations where custom signage is the best solution. Often, however, the client's interests are not well served with a custom product. Customs carry a substantial design cost, which may be hidden within the unit cost. Further, with custom jobs, small follow on orders often receive a substantial up-charge.

With Fusion you have a signage system that is highly customizable through a broad range of shapes and material finishes. Fusion also, through a dynamic use of graphics, enables you to use signage to reinforce your identity or brand. The client can also be assured that they can order single signs with no special up-charge.
