KiD to KiD

This is what is referred to as perforated material.  It is a view-thru vinyl product that full-color graphics can be printed onto.

It is widely used for rear windows in vehicles because the nature of the material allows the driver to see out, but nobody can see in.

The perforated material is also used for businesses for their storefront windows, like this one that Centreville Sign A Rama produced for KiD to KiD here in Centreville.

The Jackson Clinics

Centreville Sign A Rama is once again providing new channel letters for The Jackson Clinics new location in Springfield. Here you see us in the installation phase.

Channel letters are a fundamental part of most new businesses. These channel letters are LED lit, which are much more cost effective to run versus the outdated neon tubing that was the standard.

Reflective Signs

Reflective signs are what street signs, such as STOP signs are. They are normally on a very thick aluminum and the face is a reflective material that "glows" when light in the evening is shined onto it, as is typical with vehicle headlights.

Reflective signs are perfect when an electrically-lit sign is not feasible.

This is a reflective sign that Centreville Sign A Rama produced for the Urgent Medical Care in Gainesville. There are two double sided signs. One is in the parking lot and the other is in the entrance of the shopping center providing an effective directional sign.

Cedars Mediterranean Grill

Brand new channel letters for Cedars Mediterranean Grill in Manassas made by Centreville Sign A Rama.
