Director of Special Events, Common Ground

Our office worked with Surface Grooves to do custom signage for a bar. They were professional, well versed in design and fabrication, and worked with us to make our design happen within incredibly short time constraints.

Architect, Method Architects

I hired Surface Grooves to create a 3D sign for our stage for a 3-day conference. The end result was better than I imagined and truly made the stage. Surface Grooves is so professional and made sure my experience with them was only the best. I would highly recommend them to anyone and I plan on working with them again in the near future.
