After you’ve decided to operate your business from a brick-and-mortar location, it’s time to think about signage for your building. However, this can be a lengthy process if you aren’t properly prepared for it. Here is what you need to know to get your business’ signage in your hands as soon as possible:
- Finalize Signage Design. Before a signage fabricator can get started on the signage of your dreams, it’s time for you to come up with a signage design and make sure to finalize it with signature approval.
Some signage companies have resources to help you with the design process, like ABC Signs, while others can only assist with fabrication. Keep this in mind when choosing a trusted signage partner.
- Sign the Signage Quote. Once the design is approved by you, your signage company can give you a proper and accurate quote. Be sure to review this quote in full detail before handing your signature over. Large sign projects can often take 4-8 weeks to complete fabrication and are not small expenses. Read the quote well!
- Confirm Completed Permit Application. For those of you who are getting exterior signs fabricated, the permit process is unavoidable.
Most signage companies can fill out a signage permit application for you and submit it to the City Planning & Building Department as your C45 Contractor. This means they are held responsible to fabricate your new sign and provide a secure “Method of Attachment” for the sign, with the specifications detailed on the drawings. Don’t forget to get the signature of the business owner or landlord to your signage company for this process.
- Sit Back and Relax. After all the permit processes and approvals have been completed, it’s time for you to sit back and relax. Your signage company will have what they need to get started with your signage desires.
