The work on the mountain is amazing. When mountain went from being lit from above to being lit from the front, it was like magic.  All the curved planes disappeared and suddenly a craggy rock face emerged.  Magic! Thank you both for taking a cocktail napkin sketch and transforming it into a work of art.  AND thanks for jumping through all the hoops with Mohegan Sun.

20150311_133728I wanted to offer my appreciation for a job well done. I aimed to put a sign on our building that took advantage to our proximity to the I-95 corridor but wasn’t sure quite how to do it. I met with Mark DeTulio for an initial consultation and from there he made a few recommendations. We then decided on a design that fit our budget. The sign was permitted by the town, fabricated and installed all within 3 weeks. I couldn’t believe how fast and efficient  that process was. More importantly, I couldn’t be more pleased with how the sign came out, the work of the installers, their professionalism, and how it looks at night. Thanks so much for making a small business owner feel comfortable and satisfied.

Town of Wethersfield, CT.

I was truly delighted by the prototypes you prepared for the owner and my review. After 38 years, it’s rare to be excited to see work jump so completely from my “board” to reality. In this case I was, and know the owner was pleased far beyond his expectations: a good thing for each of us. None of this would have happened without the incredible skill and craft of your troops in the shop. The signs themselves were at a craft level far above the standard of the industry and are a testament to all those who “touched” them: welders, finishers, painters, vinyl folks, and finally the assemblers. Again, please thank all of them for me for a job far beyond well done.

Yale-New Haven Medical Center

Yale-New Haven HospitalI have worked professionally with SIGNLite for the last four years and have done an increasing amount of business with them. I am thoroughly pleased with the service and professionalism SIGNLite has exhibited with regard to the coordination, the fabrication and the installation of all exterior signs throughout Yale Medical Center. Our campus encompasses a large area and John DeTulio was extremely helpful with different wayfinding ideas. As property manager for many properties owned by Yale-New Haven Medical Center, Inc., I have dealt with many contractors. I have been thoroughly pleased with the manner in which SIGNLite has responded to questions and concerns I have had with this enormous project. They were always very congenial and helpful. John DeTulio and his staff have always been timely, courteous and efficient whenever I have had any problems. It is reassuring to know that I can contact SIGNLite at any time of the day, and they respond, promptly.

SIGNLite, once again, collaborated wonderfully in the creation of this piece. You brought an inspiring level of craftsmanship and creativity, taking the work to a higher level of expression. It was a pleasure to bring to life another design that benefited from SIGNLite’s dedication to quality and its unflagging efforts to make something truly special.

I have to tell you it is rare these days to get such great customer service. From your prompt attention, to your Field guy being very pleasant, to the prompt service from your office proving the invoice and the pleasant and thorough operator at your office…I have to say it was refreshing! We will be moving this summer and may have some needs for additional signage – I will be in touch! Thank you!

I just wanted to thank you for your work on the banner for Beinecke Library. It really looks terrific in the space! Thank you very much for all of your help on this project! Please also thank Sheryl who spent all that time with me getting the color just right. This procedure really worked perfectly. I’m sure there will be more banners like this in the future!

I have had SIGNLite create signage for about 25 years with different business that I have started. To me the quality and the design of the sign reflects  exactly what my business needs.  I truly enjoy working with their designer and they are always willing to give and take ideas that will best represent our brand.

I saw pics of the minuteman sculpture . I think it exceeded everyone’s expectation. Great job. Thanks for the attention to detail.

Note: The Minuteman Sculpture is the logo for the Connecticut National Guard; the sculpture is hanging in the foyer at the Connecticut National Guard headquarters at Camp Niantic.

Grove School, Madison, CT.

I am a very satisfied customer. I have been extraordinarily pleased with your responsiveness, creativity, adaptability and understanding throughout the construction process of the new Academic Building at Grove School. You fabricated a stainless steel frieze around most of the top of our new Academic building along with a sizeable statue. You executed this exactly as planned. We also changed the plans to build a striking stainless steel tower with large varied leaves “growing” on a “stem” winding throughout the interior to denote “growth”.  Your creativity, quality of workmanship and stylized design resulted in an even more spectacular end product than had been originally envisioned. You worked with me in a friendly, smooth and timely manner with sensitivity to my finances. I would highly recommend you to any prospective customers.

Richard L. Chorney, president and CEO, Grove School, Madison, CT.



City of Hamden, CT.

On behalf of The Hamden Beautification Committee and the town, I would like to thank you for your hard work, follow through and good management on the “Welcome to Hamden” signs. They all look smashing and we are delighted to finally have some quality work in the town. Please tell Peter how happy I am with his designs. (Miller Library, etc., too). Hopefully, things will work out there. SIGNLite is a first-rate company.

Just a note to thank you and your staff for a job well done. We are extremely pleased with the design and quality of the workmanship of our new sign and vehicle graphics. Your design staff worked very closely with me, listened to all my ideas, made all of the appropriate changes until I was completely satisfied with the design.

Al-Marzook Memorial

I wanted to let you know that I think the Al-Marzook Memorial is absolutely exquisite. The decision of materials that were used, the paint selections, and the overall craftsmanship was perfect. You and your staff took a simple 2-D drawing of a concept and turned it into a sculpture. Thanks for all your hard work.

Dennis Russo,



American Brands, Ethan Allen, Bank Boston and Grove Hill Medical

Early in my career, I had a need for signs and found SIGNLite’s ad in the phone book. In John DeTulio I found the solution to my problem and a new friend. Now, twenty-something years later, I still use SIGNLite for all my signage needs. I cannot count the amount of signs SIGNLite has made for me or how many problems they have solved. Their expertise and fair pricing has always made them my only sign company. Simply, they are the best at what they do and they are such a pleasure to work with. I freely and enthusiastically recommend them to everyone who has signage needs. .

City & State Contracts New Haven, CT.

SIGNLite Inc. was the winning bidder on two major City/State contracts for permanent decorative metal directional signs, which have been installed throughout the City over the last several years. The Department of Traffic and Parking administered the contracts on behalf of the City and is satisfied with the work of this firm. They manufactured and installed all of the signage under this program. The city retains this contractor annually as a sole source vendor for maintenance of this installed system. This Department frequently refers other Departments and private sector entities to SIGNLite Inc. for their signage needs.

Pappas MacDonnell has benefited greatly over the years through our relationship with SIGNLite. They have come through for us on many of our signage projects – including our own. John DeTulio, our representative at SIGNLite, is an invaluable resource for all stages of development – be it new materials, sign construction or safety issues.
