Join the Guild today to receive a $40 discount off the retail cost of Spike ($499 USD).

Spike is a laser accurate Smartphone solution that allows you to quickly measure existing signs or placement for new signs by capturing the width, height and area of a space – simply by taking a photo from your Smartphone or Tablet. Spike is ideal for site surveys and creating estimates, as you don’t need ladders, expensive labor, or bucket trucks. The Spike device, Spike mobile app, and your Smartphone or Tablet work together.
