“Over the course of the last year, we have worked on two major signage projects with the team at Barlo Signs. The first job included a variety of styles of donor recognition signs within our new Sports and Fitness Center. This job not only required a number of decisions regarding style, sizing, and placement, but also required a very tight production and installation schedule. The second project, slightly more straightforward, included wayfinding signs throughout our campus.

Throughout both projects we were exceptionally pleased with the advice and responsiveness of Denis Maltais during the design phases. Unsure about how to handle the various styles needed for the donor recognition signs, we were very trusting of his expertise on suggested styles and sizes to fit the great variety of spaces that needed to be covered. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results and, truthfully, would not change a thing. During the production and installation phases Jennifer Lawson handled our questions and concerns efficiently and with great results. We had a very tight schedule needing the installation of the donor signs for our grand opening and Jennifer ensured we had a team scheduled. Finally, we were very pleased with our installation team of Scott Gettings and Damion Garland who installed both jobs. My hats off to them this winter as they installed the wayfinding signs in extreme cold and snowy conditions.

While inevitably there were small hiccups along the way, we were very happy with the resolution of any and all issues and, most importantly, how quickly they were resolved. The process from initial call to final inspection was extraordinarily professional and the results outstanding!”

“(Barlo Signs) guided our project through the permit, production, and installation process. After the installation of the second sign, our business immediately increased 35%. I was so impressed with (Barlo Signs’) ability to generate increased business with signage that I added signs to two more of our locations ”

“Success is the only way I can describe the impact our new sign and message center has had on our business… (we have) always taken a very laid back, conservative approach to marketing ourselves, and our products. We’ve had the sign now for about six week and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Each day we have new people coming into our lobby to open new accounts based on the messages delivered on the message board. We’ve even had people come in asking if we were a new bank in town (we’ve been here 78 years).”

Vice President, Salem Co-Operative Bank, Salem, NH

“With your assistance, we changed the logo and the results have been outstanding. Through our tracking system, 30 percent of our volume of these stores is due to the freestanding signs. In my opinion, proper signing is the cheapest and most effective form of advertising.”

“Thank you. We have a working sign that not only is aesthetically pleasing, but has also resulted in increased business. People have walked into our salon and thought we were a new shop, when in actuality, we have been there for nearly two years.”

“When we met six years ago, I wasn’t ready to make the investment. Now, if I knew then what I know now, I wouldn’t have given it a second thought. Lowell: 40% increase in sales. Everett: 17% increase in sales. Billerica: 10% increase in sales.”

“The sign laws… are terrible and hurt business instead of helping them. Your assistance in the variance meeting… enabled me to get the maximum visibility on this highly traveled road. The increase in my floor traffic, due to the increased visibility, has been about ten percent.”

“We estimate that our sales have increased 20% due to the sign.”

Business has no question improved as a result of our new look.”
