We have enjoyed the privilege of working with Ad light for many years on a wide variety of projects. The Ad Light crew has always been able to build our designs with results that speak to their careful attention to our drawings. They are great communicators and we feel like the projects we work on together become collaborations of the best kind.
From up front design work to fabrication and install, Ad Light provides great service. AMLI has been very pleased with how our community signage has turned out to date and expect to continue using Ad Light in the future.
Ad Light & Sign has provided our company and tenants with personalized, prompt, professional service for many years. The experienced staff keeps specific needs and budget in mind while providing innovative design work, top quality customer service, materials and installation. From service to replacement, small jobs and large, we have been and continue to be, a very satisfied customer.
I have worked with Ad Light for over five years and it has always been a wonderful experience. Tory is so easy to work with and very accommodating-truly going above and beyond. The quality of work that is delivered from creative all the way through install is always top notch.
Every project that I have worked on with Tory Humphrey and the Ad Light team has been seamless, beautiful and easy. It’s great to be able to trust the Ad Light team with my designs, they don’t take shortcuts or discount the design process. In cases of a design build, the Ad Light team to comes to the table with creative yet realistic solutions. Every time I visit the shop they are happy to share the latest and greatest piece of equipment or technology they are using - so I know they are in pace with the highest industry standards in regards to fabrication processes. The Ad Light team is professional and works well with the Architect, Contractor, Owner & Design team. The finished product is high end, refined and not a detail is forgotten, proving the experience of the craftsmen in their shop. The best thing about Ad Light - they keep my clients happy.
Outstanding work! A great value.
AD Light has been able to deliver beautiful custom light fixtures and highly-complex corporate signage for our clients, it’s their craftsmanship, artistry, and on-time delivery that make our projects shine.
I brought Ad Light on as a sign fabricator at Children’s Hospital Colorado after over 8 years of working with another local fabricator/installer. The transition was so seamless, they were able to use all of our existing sign drawings and match our current signage near perfectly. In addition, they were able to offer some recommendations on how to improve our current sign designs and fabrication to avoid some of the regular maintenance issues we dealt with. Their teams are very responsive, professional and organized all the way from project inception through installation and completion. My only regret is not bringing them on board sooner!
I've worked with Ad Light on several different projects and have always had a great experience. They are very knowledgeable and are always up for a challenge when we've come to them with an unusual idea. Everyone on the team has gone above and beyond to help me meet deadlines and exceed client expectations -- I definitely consider them one of my "go-to" contacts in the industry.
Through our work with AD Light over the previous 4 years and multiple projects, both large and small, we have experienced tremendous project oversight, attention to detail, timely response and ultimately a great finished product. We are happy to consider AD Light, our go-to partner for signage coordination.
Chandler Signs has worked with Ad Light Group for several years on a multitude of projects. We have found that over the years our relationship has grown stronger due to the amazing service we have received. Each team member we have encountered have gone above and beyond the call of service we expected.
Ya’ll are awesome because ya’ll install are stuff timely and professionally. Ya’ll have gone above and beyond on more than one occasion. Plus working with ya’ll is not super formal, I get to cut up and be myself.
