It's a new year (we can still call it "new" two months in, can't we?) and along with the change of the calendar comes a refresh of our product catalog, which we're now calling our Product Guide. Available in both online and print formats for the first time, this 100 page volume is packed with new products and information. Today we're going to walk you through some of our favorite features.

The 2016 Product Guide is now divided into five sections: Signs, Sign Blanks, Roll Goods and Die Cuts, Installation, and Work Zone and Pavement. Our detailed Table of Contents begins the book, along with an updated company history timeline documenting some of the highlights and milestones we've experienced since Hall Signs' founding in 1949. Each section is color-coded for easy searching and begins with a two-page overview of the products within and guidelines for purchasing. (Our Signs section also includes a bonus two-page ordering guide for Street Name Signs!)

We've pulled these pages together using both our industry knowledge and top FAQ's, and we hope they will be helpful to you as you navigate the purchasing process. 

Putting up a new sign installation? Our About Our Signs (pages 4 and 5) and Installation (pages 70 and 71) overviews will help you pick the right size for your project, as well as the right posts, brackets and hardware for the job. 

Making your own signs? The About Our Sign Blanks (pages 54 and 55) and Reflective Sheeting Guides (pages 64 and 65) walk you through all of the substrate and sheeting options we have available. 

Setting up a work zone? Our Work Zones and Temporary Traffic Control guide (pages 88 and 89) includes an overview of our product offerings, and tips on the 7 Fundamental Principles of Temporary Traffic Control. 

We understand that sometimes you need to work on the fly, so each overview also includes a list of Key Questions to ask yourself or your client as you're pulling together an order or quote. More quick tips, along with Hall Exclusives (signs and sizes not featured in the MUTCD) and NEW product notations are included throughout the catalog. On the final, closing pages you'll find our Terms and Conditions, as well as contact information and a note from Larry and Patsy Hall, our co-owners.

We're excited about the updates and want to make sure you can have a copy of the 2016 Product Guide in your hands as quickly as possible. Give us a call or send us an email to request your print copy, and we'll get it in the mail. In the meantime, why not flip through our virtual pages while you wait for the office copy?
