Customer Testimonials

Clay Signs can do it ALL and none are more creative!

Clay signs is the king in graphic signs. Best in the DC greater metropolitan area and all over.

I’m an interior designer in Northern California and we hired Clay to help us with a custom vinyl film design for an office project in Arlington, VA. Clay’s work was amazing. He is professional, prompt to respond, hands on, creative and able to provide solutions when needed. We will most likely use his expertise again for photo murals in the space. I recommend him highly and only wish he were in California:)

I run a small business in Falls Church City and needed to reface the sign on the front of the building. I checked with a few businesses and Clay was the most responsive. His price was reasonable and he was willing to help us with the permitting process. We ended up handing the permits but he provided some great advice. Once we got the thumbs up from the City, Clay had the sign up in a matter of days. He was unbelievably fast.

On top of that, he's a really nice guy. Before we had him under contract, he came by the shop to check things out and inspect the sign. We ended up chatting for a bit and I know after meeting him that his was the company we'd go with. We have no regrets and are completely satisfied with the service and the end of product. We highly recommend Clay for all of your signage needs.

Clay has placed decals on several of our trucks, over the past few months. The work is outstanding and Clay goes above and beyond to make things easy by driving to various locations so our crews can stay on the job site while the work is being done on the vehicles. We will continue to use Clay for all our signs and decals and would recommend him to anyone looking for quality work at a fair price.

Clay is the best in the business! He did a superb job in creating our signs and was very professional throughout the entire service. To go above and beyond, he also assisted us in moving and rehanging the signs when we moved locations. If you're not using Clay, you're using the wrong company.

Wonderful experience from start to finish each time we have used SIGNS by Clay Downing! Clay is always prompt, personable and competitively priced. He installed our new window vinyls and lettering perfectly on our front display windows, taking time to thoroughly clean the windows first. We could not be happier with the results and look forward to working with him in the future.

Clay was professional and patient through the process from start to completion in getting our lobby sign installed. We are pleased with the finished product and recommend Clay!
