The first step towards your unique sign is a free consultation with one of our knowledgeable experts. We come to you, take a few photos and measurements and really get to understand what it is you are looking for to promote your business and attract customers. We then help with suggestions that suit your business, the application/building and your budget.
Sign Design – We Create Detailed Proofs for Your Review
With acceptance of our quote, it is onto the next step! This is where your ideas are in the hands of our graphic design team who will study your requirements and any files you may have sent over for ideas. This will give them a feel for your company’s branding, allowing them to create a design that captures the tone of your business and best utilizes the space available. Once our designers have something they are happy with, we provide a detailed proof for you to review.
This step not only creates a visual representation of the work to be completed and what the signage will look like when installed, it also allows you the opportunity to make changes to the final design prior to manufacturing.
Permits – We Will Apply for You
Every municipality has specific signage bylaws, and most require a permit before installation. Our team is well-versed in these bylaws and can assist you in determining if a permit is necessary. If a permit is needed, we fill out the application form, create all renderings and the required elevations drawings, and submit or apply in person on your behalf. This eliminates your time commitment and frustration that can sometimes be associated with obtaining municipal approval for your signage. Once we receive confirmation that your permit application has been approved, we will notify you promptly and then get started with production.
