Announcement    COVID-19 UPDATE: We are still up and running with minimal impact. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. We hope that you and your loved one's remain safe!

ABOUT OUR SIGNS

Each GlowSigns address marker is precision machined and handmade in Canada. With customizable font and size options, each address plaque is designed to customer satisfaction and assembled to high quality standards.

Visually designed to a minimalist style, we also made sure to include a hidden dusk-to-dawn light sensor. The numbers are machined from custom made acrylic composed of two different sheets carefully fused together for thickness and visual impact. The numbers are inlaid through the back of the plaque so that they sit proud from the surface to add depth. They are then permanently sealed to ensure that no moisture can penetrate through from the front. Our signs feature numbers that are textured matte black during the day but change color to glow white at night.

No fasteners can be seen from the front of the plaque. Like the numbers, the machined side covers have the same velvet texture as the numbers and glow when lit. Stainless steel screws are used to fasten the side covers and allow access to the light sensor electronics. The light sensor sensitivity can be adjusted and the circuit board is conformal coated to protect against moisture. A hermetically sealed light sensor is flush mounted to the sign frame.

We use only quality parts and materials to ensure the maximum possible product lifetime and we back our signs with a two year warranty. Many of our customers have let us know that the product we have delivered was beyond their expectations visually and quality wise.

Customer service is also important to us so please expect us to respond within 24 hours. Please send us any questions that you might have. Thank you for your interest!

Detail, Quality and Value. No shortcuts.

At GlowSigns we take immense pride in our work. That's because we design and build our signs from the ground up. Every element on the sign has been selected to create the best possible product for the best value.

The front of each sign is made from commercial grade acrylic and aluminum composite. Corners are rounded on the front sign face to give a softer and more finished aesthetic. For that extra pop, material is custom made from 2 layers of acrylic carefully fused together. Acrylic numbers are permanently fixed and sealed from behind the front sign face to complete the 3D inlay look. Each piece is precision machined for perfect fit. No unsightly gaps when you receive your sign!

GlowSigns designed aluminum extrusions form a strong and rigid structure behind the front sign face. The extrusions were carefully drawn to integrate back lighting and a security hanging system while minimizing sign thickness. An engraved back light panel machined to fit gives our signs their signature clean and balanced glow. Turning the sign on or off is automatic with a hidden dusk-to-dawn sensor. To complete assembly, side covers and a back panel complete the weatherproof enclosure.

We aimed for a minimalist look while implementing as many features as we could. A tested and almost classic design, our signs have remained virtually unchanged since we started on Etsy. Our signs are an original design, custom and hand made in Canada.

We believe is customer service. Please contact us if you have any questions and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your interest in GlowSigns!

Frequently asked questions
Does the sign need to be wired?

Yes. 20ft of low voltage wire and a plug-in adapter is included. The sign can not be wired directly to mains but a LED driver could be wired between the sign and mains to provide the sign with the required 12VDC.

Can the sign be powered by solar or battery?

No. Unfortunately solar or a battery would not be able to supply the amount of power required. The average sign draws about 5W of power when lit. A battery pack wouldn't last more than a couple days.

Are other fonts available and can you do letters?

Yes. We can do letters and any font as long as they are not extremely detailed. We can also do street names. We are limited to a cutting radius of 1/8" (3.2mm) so anything smaller than that we can not do. Just send us a custom order request and we can go from there.
