Steps to Take before Committing to Your Business Sign

It’s exciting, for a business owner, when the time comes to display your company’s sign.  

First Step: 
To begin the sign process, you must apply for a sign permit and follow all city regulations. You will need a permit if you plan to display any of these signs:

·       Painted sign on a building
·       Hanging sign from a building or wall
·       Neon sign
·       Freestanding sign

Your city may not require a permit if you paint the sign on your window or if it cannot be seen outside of your building. Additionally, be sure to check with your city government regarding home-based business signage requirements or whether you need to abide by certain zoning laws.


Request Estimates and Visit Sign Companies in Person

Once you are certain that you have met local ordinances for business signs, your next step is to obtain cost estimates from several local businesses that create signs. While you might consider ordering from an online sign maker, this has definite disadvantages. First, you cannot visit the location to understand the process and see the sign makers in action. You will also need to arrange to have the sign(s) shipped across the country, something that always brings the risk of damage and additional expense.

 If possible, go to a business in person to obtain your estimate. Keep in mind that the estimate might differ from the final cost due to issues not yet known at the time you received it. Each sign cost can vary significantly between business depending on the unique signage needs. While comparing business signage cost, you should also consider variables between the sign manufacturers such as delivery timelines and company reputation. You can easily learn more about each business by searching for and reading online reviews.

Make Sure the Company Can Help with Designing your Sign
Some sign companies expect customers to bring their own designer into the process. However, you may have no experience doing this or prefer to work with a sign maker that can help you with all aspects of obtaining a business sign. This includes designing and producing your sign, obtaining the necessary permits from city government, installing the sign, and performing maintenance and repair after installation.
