Stock signs are signs that we print by the hundreds or thousands and then put on the shelf. These are all listed on our website and in our catalog. They have item numbers with specific artwork and specifications.
Custom signs are basically anything else. We can do custom signs where the entire sign is created from scratch or we can take one of our stock signs and modify it to suit your needs. Whichever option you choose will be considered custom even if we are using one of our stock signs as a starting point.
If you create a custom sign with us and then order it again at some point further down the road it will still be considered a custom sign, as it is not something we are going to print and then stock on the shelf.
