We’ll like to keep the process of ordering a custom business sign simple for you. Although we’ll need your input throughout the project we’ll guide you through the process. At Sign Partners we’ll take care of the entire process, starting with a site survey, to permit application and the installation. We have summarized the process of ordering a new sign, so you are ready for your next signage project.
Most of the time a site survey is required prior to submitting a quote for your new custom business sign. The reason for the survey is to determine the size of the sign, which affects the price of the sign. Our experts will visit your property and take care of the site survey accordingly. For an outdoor business sign you don’t need to be present, so we’ll keep it easy for you. During the site survey, our team also evaluates the property to determine access and any possible challenges for the installation.
Custom Business Sign Quote
Based on the site survey and your requirements of the sign we will provide you with a custom quote. We’ll always try to submit a quote for your approval within 48 hours. Depending on the custom requirements of the sign, this might be slightly longer. Upon receipt of your approval of the quote and deposit we can move on to the next step.
Prior to any sign that we fabricate, we always provide you with a detailed design proof. The design proof includes a mock-up (to scale) of your new business sign for your review. Furthermore the design proof includes the materials used for the sign and the custom colors. We’ll require your written approval of the design proof in order to move on to the permit application. Certainly, if you wish to make any changes to the design proof Sign Partners will accommodate these accordingly.
If you don’t own the property we will take care of all necessary approvals of the landlord prior to the permit application with the city or county. Unless we receive approval from the landlord we won’t be able to proceed with the permit application. We’ll take care of all the necessary drawings and paperwork. Sign Partners is a licensed state contractor and the perfect partner for your sign permit. The timeline of the permit approval depends on the city and can be between 4 – 8 weeks.
Fabrication of your Custom Business Sign
We won’t be able to start the fabrication of your custom business sign until the sign permit is approved. The reason being, that sometimes the city requires a change that we need to comply with in order to receive the approved permit. Therefore, we will only start fabrication based on the approved drawings by the city. If we wouldn’t do that, additional costs might occur by making changes to the already fabricated sign.
Installation & inspection
Once the sign is fabricated it’s time for installation day! Together with you and your landlord we will schedule the installation, making sure it’s convenient for all parties involved. Depending on the type of sign, we might need several days or need a truck obstructing a walkway or road. This is one of the reason why we always make sure to plan this carefully. After the installation is complete we first of all hope that you are satisfied with your brand new sign. Behind the scenes we will take care of the final inspections to make sure that the city closes the permit for your records.
As stated above, we’ll try to keep the process for a commercial sign as simple as possible for you. Sign Partners has many years of experience, to make sure it’s a smooth ride for you. Let us take care of all the steps of the process so you can enjoy your new custom business sign! Contact our team today to schedule a site survey for a custom quote.
