In August of 2001, Gary & Jody Butler purchased a small sign company called Realty Advertising which specialized in commercial real estate sign services. They began in 1974 by servicing just one local real estate firm. With that humble beginning the company now services many of the local firms on a weekly basis
As the company began to grow, another opportunity came to purchase a sign provider to the industry of manufacturing a specialty sign that is sandblasted which is a custom hand-made dimensional sign. With the purchase of Capitol Design, we could now provide a service to our wholelsale customers across the country with an internet based business.
We have expanded that side of our business as we provide not only sandblasted signs but also have a routing service to enhance the look of the signs with a 3rd dimension.
What Capital Design Means To You
Customer Service: Unparalleled customer service that guarantees your satisfaction. Capitol Design’s professional staff is prepared to assist you with any questions that you may have on design, blasting, painting or installation.
Artists: At Capitol Design our sign makers are truly artists. From the person who carefully chooses the panel of wood for your sign, to our designer, to our layout artist, to our sandblaster, to our detail painter who can custom paint nature scenes to look lifelike.
Price: Because of Capitol Design’s increased buying power for redwood and cedar we are able to offer very competitive prices; that is important in today’s economy.
Increased Thickness: Capitol Design buys cedar in the rough to assure maximum thickness. Your finished blank or sign is thick enough to allow double faced signs to be manufactured on one panel.
Turn Around: Every sign and blank at Capitol Design is custom manufactured, yet we provide some of the quickest turn around in the industry. In addition, our shop is large enough to adjust to the most stringent time frame on your rush orders.
On Site Blasting: At Capitol Design we do all of our own blasting. This means that we can use different abrasives for different substrates and levels of detail. We can also adjust pressure as necessary to assure neat, clean edges on the most complex graphic designs.
Large Orders: If your customer hands you a large order, don’t panic, just call Capitol Design. Because of new equipment and production efficiencies in our shop we are capable of handling the largest orders and we can ship to you in stages for ease of installation.
Decreased Breakage: Capitol Design now offers the best crating for large signs in the industry. Our crates have been custom designed by a structural engineer to withstand the toughest freight company abuse. Breakage has been virtually eliminated.
Expand Your Product Line: Think of Capitol Design as an extension of your company. Sandblasted signage can be an exciting alternative for you to introduce into your product line. We provide finished signs at wholesale prices — you make the profit without any of the production work.
Substrates: Capitol Design uses only the finest clear heart, vertical grain, kiln dried cedar. Full length boards are always used, no finger joints. We also offer a variety of other substrates including SignFoam, marble, granite, tile, glass, synthetic stone and brick.
“In House” Designs: If you can sketch it, Capitol Design’s “in house” designer can design it and produce professional drawings for you to submit to your customer.
