The Tipsi Monkey Shines with Channel Letter Signs in Bartlett IL

The Tipsi Monkey Shines with Channel Letter Signs in Bartlett IL


Located at 778 West Bartlett Road in Illinois’ Bartlett, the Tipsi Monkey Taco & Tequila Bar is a favorite hangout for anyone who loves stuffed jalapenos, tropical appetizers and blackened chicken salad as well as tacos of all kinds. Tequila – and other libations – are available to quench the thirst. Folks love to go ape at this quirky locale where the vibe is fun, relaxed and easygoing.

When the Tipsi Monkey needed one of the eye-catching channel letter signs Bartlett, IL, restaurants and bars favor, the management contacted Mark Your Space. We visited this great bar to get an impression of the exterior’s sizing. After all, the available display space greatly influences the height, depth and width of a sign. We drew up some sketches and – after talking to the client – decided to fit the sign snugly above the awning. This creates a great play or light and shadows that also illuminates part of the awning material at night.


Are you thinking of redoing your old marker? Exterior building signs for restaurants in Bartlett, IL, must meet three criteria:

  1. Stand out. There are 432 listings for bars in Bartlett. There are another 2,982 listings for restaurants. With this much competition in the area, you need the type of sign that catches the eye.
  2. Brand. In addition to being an eye-popping display, your sign should increase brand awareness. Using your logo and perhaps a slogan as part of your building marker is always a good idea.
  3. Welcome. How can your sign welcome your target demographic? The answer to this is the simple formula of design plus color plus illumination. These three key components can be customized to appeal to your target demographic.


The Tipsy Monkey’s marker incorporates all three of these criteria and your sign can, too. When you contact us for an initial consultation, we will visit your location for a site survey. At that time, we will take measurements and look at the font, size and colors of your already existing signage.

We will discuss your signage needs with you and talk about the best use of the available space. This is also the time when we need to decide on lit versus unlit signage. The advantage of lit signs is clear. Illuminated automatically after dark, hungry and thirsty restaurant goers cannot help but notice your channel letter sign. Yet even here, there are differences.

Reverse lettering allows the light to escape through the back toward the building. This leaves the fronts of your letters darker but surrounds them with a halo of illumination. This is very chic and ideal for the eatery that caters to an avant-garde and sophisticated clientele. Front-lit signs allow the illumination to escape through the front of colored acrylic plates. The Tipsy Money chose a front-lit sign that lights up bright white at night. You can follow suit or go for any color of the rainbow.

If this is all very confusing, don’t fret! We will learn about your business and draw up sketches that suit your needs and budget. We guide you through the decision-making process one component at a time. Contact us today!
