Q. What sizes can I get?

A. Our standard choices include 30 different sign size combinations. However, Tango Signs offers all shapes and sizes so if you don’t see the size you're looking for, let us know and we will provide a custom quote.

Q. What are your signs made of?

A. Our lighted marquee signs are constructed of heavy duty, weather-resistant, extruded aluminum casing (.090 or thicker, depending on sign size) with welded corners and steel hardware. Capable of withstanding winds up to 140mph. Our standard cabinet depths are 7" for single-sided signs and 12" for double-sided signs. Each side of the sign face retainer is hinged for easy access to bulbs and installation points. All lighted marquee signs contain UL Listed electrical components with manufacturer warranties, wire-way cover, exterior safety switch, and a single 3-wire pigtail ready to connect to your 120v power source.

Q. What types of sign faces do you offer?

A. Our standard flat sign face panels are white translucent Implex* from Plexiglas® - 8x stronger than ordinary sign face material. Flat and panned face types are offered as standard selections when ordering your custom sign on our website, and both are finished with acrylic tracks for changeable letters *Lexan, the strongest sign face material in the industry, is applied to signs purchased with flat faces over 4'H, and for added impact strength panned faces are our standard for signs with faces measuring over 48sq ft.

Q. What is the difference in the Flat and Panned Sign Faces?

A. FLAT FACE PANELS are the most common and most economical of sign face types. A flat-face panel is a completely flat insert that provides a sleek look for your sign.

PANNED FACE PANELS are molded to create a raised 2.5” 'pillow' effect. The raised portion of the sign face gives your graphics an eye-catching pop, and increases the panel’s strength and rigidity, improving its wind resistance. Panned face panels are optional on most sign sizes, but used as a standard on signs larger than 48sq ft. A very large flat surface area has an increased risk of bowing over time under extreme weather conditions and its own weight. This is prevented by using a panned face panel on all oversized signs.

Q. Can I purchase letters for my marquee sign?

A. Yes. Letter packs are sold separately, and are listed as an option when ordering your marquee sign.

Q. What kind of letters does Tango Signs provide?

A. We offer Pronto ADM style letters - a superior changeable letter that comes with a lifetime manufacturer's guarantee. These bold and easy to read letters are screen printed with ecologically sound UV cured inks on clear acrylic blanks. Our letter cards are precision injection molded and are a rigid .080" thick. A raised edge along each side prevents letters from laying flat against the sign face, while 'feet' on the the letter's base make them easier to slide on tracks and prevent freezing in winter.

Q. What size changeable letters is available?

A. As our standard, we offer both 6” letters (on 6 7/8” clear panel) and 8” letters (on 8 7/8” clear panel). Other sizes are available by special quote.

Q. How many lines of changeable letters can I get on my marquee sign?

A. During production, we will place tracks for as many lines of changeable letters as possible for your sign. In determining how many rows can be placed on a sign, we must consider space for the tracks as well as the size of the letters used. For example, each row of 8” letters (on 8 7/8” panels) takes up approximately 12” of sign face. So, a 3'H marquee sign will have three rows of tracks for 8” letters.

Q. Can you add my logo or graphics to my marquee sign?

A. Tango Signs can easily add a digitally printed graphic or logo to your marquee sign for a professional look that blends your business image with your periodic messages.
