I just received and installed my new home theater sign, and I can't remember the last time I was this pleased with an online purchase! I felt compelled to share this jewel with fellow forum members.
The sign is customized, 8"h×28"w, fluorescent back-lit, and gorgeous! They run $179 (for the medium size like mine) from Hollywood Marquees. The price includes shipping, and multiple mock-ups e-mailed to you until you settle on a design you like. I worked on my design with Aimee, who was very patient as I added equipment logos and requested exact spacing of text and graphics in certain areas. I'm sure if you contact her at email@example.com, she can direct you to her current URL to look at the various styles.
Their products have come up several times in threads over the last couple of years. They do make nice products.
They had contacted me about 18 months ago to beta test/give feedback on creating a Marquee with the addition for movie mylar inserts. We exchanged several emails...then they must have dropped the idea...since I stopped getting responses to my emails.
Craig, I hope you share some pics when your done....
Yes, I will.
It probably won't compare to what they do at Hollywood Marquees, but it will be something I can say I did my self. In fact, at one time, I thought I might incorporate one of the HW Marquee signs into my marquee to utilize the back-lighting and changeable lettering.
Perhaps I still will.
As far as my home made marquee goes, I had planed on using a certain kind of changeable lettering for my marquee, but have been unable to find what I want in a two or at most three inch size. Of all things, I thought finding lettering would be one of the easiest. But in fact this quest for the ultimate letter has turned into quite the crusade.
Once I get the lettering issue resolved, I think I could wrap this up rather quickly.

I got my sign for my HT from Aimee at Hollywood Marquees and they did an excellent job I was very pleased with the purchase and quality. My wife and friends thought it put a very professional touch to the entrance area. I would highly recommend this company to anybody.
