Custom Signs & Graphics

Custom Signs & Graphics

Custom signs and graphics are one of the best ways to share your message in a memorable way with students, faculty, visitors and patients. It’s your way of helping people see and experience what your area has to offer.

We take a personalized approach to every project to ensure the graphics we produce meet or exceed expectations. We’ll spend time learning about your Department and the unique purpose for your display graphics. We’ll then help you select the right materials for your project, whether it’s an exotic synthetic material that is germ resistant and easy to clean or different types of metals.

Expert color matching is always available to make sure new display graphics match your existing materials. And we are “turn-key” in our approach that means we’ll work with you to install when the room or space is available.


Duke University Copy & Digital Printing offers complete design services. We can meet with you and discuss your design needs, whether it be a simple one-sided sheet, or a complex series of marketing products. We will develop your concepts or develop a campaign for you.
