Owner / Operating Manager
As the Founder and CEO of Hung Well Signs, Kevin Kane fosters a deeply-rooted passion as not only an artist who loves painting and creating signs, but an entrepreneur who believes in top-level customer service. In business for over 25 years, HWS has become a staple of Fairfield County, where Kevin was born and raised. He is thrilled to contribute to the landscape of his neighborhood – one sign at a time.
Prior to HWS, Kevin received a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design from Sacred Heart University. When he's not hard at work creating signs, he's at home in Darien with his wife, Mary, and twin teenaged daughters, Erin and Kelly.
Kevin's work has brought our brand to life in our space. With the mind's eye of an artist, his work is so much more than just signage; it's a source of energy and engagement, which have proven invaluable for our business. Furthermore, while working with Kevin, I always felt like my strategic needs were his top priority. He listened to my objectives, took the time to get to know my business, and ensured that he fully understood the type of message and vibe I wanted to convey.

A sign represents your image. Image is everything in business. Although sandblasted signs are more expensive than 'quick sign' vinyl sticker style sign solutions, a sandblasted sign will last for decades. A typical vinyl sign has an exterior life expectancy of less than 5 years.
Whether you are looking for a residential entrance sign, development directional signs, business park tenant signs, lobby or reception displays, church reader boards or golf course signage, we can provide a solution that will exceed your expectations and leave a lasting impression.
Cedar - Cedar is a great sign building material because of its resistance to bugs and rot. Cedar is easily sandblasted and the resulting signs can last many years. The downside is that cedar is a natural product and no matter how much care is used in the fabrication of the cedar sign the wood is still (eventually) subject to decay. Cedar is also becoming harder to come by.
HDU (High Density Urethane) - HDU is the most popular choice of substrate for sandblasted signs today and it's the material we use for the majority of our signs. It is impervious to insects and rot and unaffected by temperature changes. Unlike cedar, HDU is readily available, is stable, carves easily, and paints beautifully. It also looks just like wood when painted.

Add some dimension to your signage, literally! Dimensional lettering is an effective way to grab attention and guide customers to your place of business. Exterior dimensional lettering can be installed directly to your building facade and to self-standing signage structures, such as monument signs or other low profile signs.
There is a distinct difference between our dimensional letters and its cousin, the channel letter. Dimensional letters are illuminated externally. That is, if you're looking to light up your sign by night, you'll need to consider an external lighting source. If you're looking for maximum impact, and the application warrants it, we recommend that you consider channel letters to internally illuminate your sign to attract attention to your brand, day or night. Durable, yet economical, our dimensional lettering can be made in varying depths depending on the material you choose.
Flat Cut or Laminated Acrylic
Injection Molded Plastic
Illuminated (Channel) Signs
Visible by day, luminous at night, channel letters provide great depth and precision to your company's sign.
Channel letters are also known as "internally illuminated letters". This description says it all in that each letter is generally lit from the inside with light shining through the plastic sign face or out the back of the letter (called a halo-lit, or reverse channel letter). As is the case for most of the signs we offer, channel letters are custom made from metal and plastic, and are commonly illuminated with LED lighting (very efficient) or neon tubing.
Channel letters may be installed directly to the building facia (each letter is mounted individually) or on a raceway. A raceway is a pre-fabricated metal box that runs the length of the channel letter sign. The raceway is then mounted directly to the building facia. Your type of installation may be determined by the city ordinance or building owner's sign criteria. We can help you get the results you're looking for.
Our channel letters are manufactured to the strictest standards, and meet all the necessary local electrical and building codes.
Standard letters are 3 dimensional letters covered with thick plastic and illuminated from the inside.
These resemble Standard Letters but there is no plastic covering, allowing the neon to show through.
These have a solid opaque front and are illuminated from behind the letter, causing a "negative space" when illuminated at night.
Interior signs can be designed for lobbies, offices, conference rooms, etc. These signs produced are limited only to your imagination. Materials used and colors selected can all be put together to meet your design and decor needs. They can be designed to match your company identity, or used to spice up the atmosphere in your facility.
While many interior signs are now regulated by ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) this type of signage must address many other issues, such as flexibility for future expansion, ease of installation and maintenance.
We manufacture many types of interior signs, including:
Point of Sale signs
Menu Board signs
Total facility signage
(Free Standing Sign)
Pylon signs are often called pole or freestanding signs. Basically they are signs erected on a pole or pylon independent of any building or structure. Since they are typically mounted higher in the air than monument signs, pole signs offer excellent visibility from a distance.
One of the many advantages of pylon signs is to separate your business from the rest along your street, reflecting your company's identity and professionalism. The pole(s) can be covered with an attractive shroud to provide that added dimension (and impact!) to your sign.
Pylon signs are typically illuminated, either internally (most common) or externally. Really looking for maximum impact and message capabilities? Add an electronic message center (LED sign) for an unparalleled eye-catching display!
Like most other types of commercial on-premise signage, be sure and check with your local city or township ordinance for height and size restrictions (or just ask us and we'll find out for you!).
With the convenience of computer-generated signs, sign painting is considered to be the purest art of our industry. There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. While technology has changed all of that, we're one of the few sign shops around that can make signs by using time-honored method of sign painting.
You're not sacrificing anything with a hand painted sign. In fact, you're gaining an edge that can't be matched by computers. We can incorporate gold leaf, add dimensioning (whether actual 2D or 3D dimension or with professional brush work), and add a protective layer that will ensure that your sign can be used inside or out.
When your seeking that classic look that can only come from the human touch, there is no substitute for a hand-painted sign. We pride ourselves on embodying the passion and craftsmanship that sign painting demands. We won't settle for anything less than excellence, and neither should you.

Vehicle wraps are always in motion, making them cost-effective, moving billboards. Full-color vehicle wraps transform vehicles into attention grabbing works of art that according to the Transportation Advertising Council, garner close to 70,000 impressions daily, making their cost-per-impression dramatically less than traditional forms of advertising such as radio or television.

Vinyl graphics and lettering is a versatile product that looks classic and professional wherever it's mounted. Vinyl is great for professional logo signs, walls, boats, cars, trucks, and pretty much any smooth surface you can think of.

Use these to advertise your business on the back of your company car, share a meaningful quote as decor for your walls, or to give your boat an official name.
Available for a variety of short-term / long-term, indoor / outdoor applications, vinyl graphics are an ideal (and cost effective) signage solution! Our in-house vinyl graphic department can assist you with all of your vinyl graphics and lettering needs.
