Chicago’s construction industry is having another huge year. Last week, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that city builders and developers in Chicago have surpassed last year’s record for active tower cranes used in one year. According to the Mayor, 54 crane permits have been used since January to work on high-rise construction projects. Areas seeing the biggest boom in skyrise construction have been River North and West Loop.
Here at AlphaGraphics Chicago North, we’ve see a huge demand for construction related signage over the past year. Construction site signs are an important and valuable part of any well-operated construction site or area. Custom signs allow for your company’s brand to be seen by workers, visitors, and passersby. They can also help to create a safe environment in a setting full of unique dangers.

You will need an entrance sign
Each construction site needs to have a designated entrance. By having an entrance sign you’ll help keep the materials moving and unauthorized personnel out of harms way. For a light weight, option for your entrance signs, we recommend using dibond signs. Dibond is created by permanently bonding two sheets of aluminum onto a solid plastic core – a unique composition that makes it approximately one-half the weight of traditional aluminum. Adding drilled holes, they can be installed to fences with zip ties or to the side of scaffolding with screws. When it comes to safety and quality entrance signage, we’ve got your crew covered.
How to prepare your artwork
Our production experts require print-ready artwork for most print jobs. This means your art file is in PDF format, sized to the dimensions of your specific job. It’s also recommended that artwork that extends to the edge of your print include crop marks. Art files can be sent via email or submitted through our file sharing website.
